Question about Fujitsu Office Equipment & Supplies
Fi 6000 ns. Part # PA03544-B005. Ser # 000809. Mfg Date 2007-8. When trying to power on the scanner the unit beeps a long solid beep that will repeat over and over. The screen is also blank and will not get past that state.
In case anyone else encounters this issue the long beep means the memory in the scanner is bad. I just completed a teardown/repair on our unit so I'm attaching my notes in hopes they help the next person... or that they help me if I have to do this again. ;)
The scanner is made up of four distinct components sharing one case: USB keyboard, touchscreen monitor, the actual scanning hardware and a micro-ATX computer on the bottom. The computer uses an Itox G5G330-P-G motherboard which takes up to two PC2700U DIMMs (one 512 MB stick is in there already) and, depending where you check, can also take PC3200U. Itox's official spec sheet doesn't specify PC3200U as an option but based on another source and components I had available I installed 2 x 512 sticks of PC3200 without issue.
You may be able to change the order of the first few steps but this is the way I did things. Disconnect/move external cables out of the way as necessary. Take pictures as you go. This will save you headaches.
The first step is to unplug everything from the back. Not just power, the USB cables too. Once those cables are disconnected you'll have to unscrew and remove the back plate.
Next, tilt the scanner component (not the whole unit) forward to reveal two plastic tracks on which it slides. Remove the screw from the top of each track and lift the scanner component straight up. Set it somewhere safe.
The tray is attached to the top of the computer by two screws. Remove the two screws securing the plate and pull it out backwards. It might snag a USB cable on the way out so be careful.
Each side plate is attached with plastic clips and four screws: three screws are on the underside of the scanner and one is on the inside of the unit, just under the keyboard. Remove all four screws and carefully pop the plate off. Repeat on the other side.
Unscrew and lift up the front plate.
After all that's done you should have access to all the screws on top of the case housing the computer. Remove all the screws from the top of the computer case and slide the plate off.
Because it's a standard Micro-ATX motherboard you just need to remove the memory as you would on any desktop.
Install your replacement memory, maybe a little extra (I upgraded it to 1 GB) and repeat all the steps in reverse to reassemble the unit.
You'll probably get a CMOS error on first boot. Just hit F1.
If the unit complains about being unable to initialize the scanner it's because you didn't reconnect it. Same goes for no video but appearing to function otherwise.
microATX G5G330 spec sheet. I started with a Cnet article that mentioned PC3200 and as I said, it functions correctly.

Just went through this. Unit is a mini-ITX pc w/ custom pwr supply, screen, and a cute little USB keyboard. Not going to get into into the disassembly w/ this answer, but the bottom line is a bad RAM stick. Uses PC2700U 333 Class 2.5 DDR, 512MB. Replace that, the beep stops, the machine will POST and pwr up.

Hi, well I have seen this type of thing countless times in my shop, and it has to do with the CCD & main circuit board in the device. The only "Fix"is board/CCD replacement.
I am not too sure if this would be an economic repair? if you wish to repair, you would need to obtain a "Quote" first, and see exactly how much it may cost? As the cost of repair may indeed approach or exceed the cost of a new unit. most of my customers have opted to replace the unit with a new more up to date one with a warranty.
