Could be a SCSI termination issue. Try changing the SCSI address number on the scanner to a different one and make sure the chain is terminated properly. If there are multiple SCSI devices in the chain, disconnect all the others until you are sure the scanner is working then slowly add the other devices to the chain making sure everything works as each device is added. SCSI voodoo!

Asking for adapter cable for scanner umax astra 3400


Should be a standard USB device cable. Any half decent home electronics store sells them. The same cable is used to connect most USB printers.

Use Windows XP with my Umax Vista 3450 flatbed


Hi,

I suggest that you uninstall the scanner,reboot windows a few times without the scanner attached and only then plug it back in and install. If the scanner is ok, the drivers should reinstall correctly. Also go to umax website to see wether there are any newer drivers, that should do the trick.

3 lights were flashing, now no lights flashing & not on


it is always handy to state the brand and the type of connection when referring a fault.
if its USB the check in ctrl panel DEVICE MANAGER if there is a yellow exclamation mark.
same for serial ...against the scanner

if this exclamation is there it means that it does not recognise the scanner and will need to be reinstalled.
check that the serial plug is on firmly, both at scanner and computer, dont just look... undo and reseat on both. Ensure the POWER plug is connected firmly and that it IS switched on.. try something else in that plug and see if it works.

simple things are often overlooked and users thinking technicians are just stupid to ask these questions, but 9/10 it is the simple thing that causes the problem.

UMAX Mirage II Scanner


I have this scanner.... I had to take the scanner apart(take the cover off) very simple to do. This is a very simple fix. Obvious fix. You will see when you open it where the switch is. Mine was not making contact. You might be stuck with it in the on position once you fix it.

UMAX Mirage IIse Running on MAC OS


I had the same problem. I turned off the scanner and unplugged the transparency unit from the back of the scanner and restarted and it is working fine now. Hopefully this works for you as well.
