Ricoh is 45se scanner squeaking loudly

Just wanted to see if you could give me some insight on this. The squeaking usually occurs after say 50 pages are sent to it. Then from there it will start out at a low pitch but it seems it get louder the more pages come out. Do you haver any suggestions on what may need to be cleaned or may be loose within the scanner? Yuor help would be greatly appreciated.

My cable that came with my ricoh is01 does not seem to be compatible with with my scanner and neither can I plug it into the pc.

The Ricoh IS01 uses a SCSI 2 (50 pin) interface. It should look like the one here: . There are SCSI to USB converters but I'm not sure if you need a specific version. (Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer so there were few interfaces that required a special connection.)

Depending on your computer's OS, there may be other issues. (Some may not be compatible with Windows Vista or Win7, for example.) Drivers for some OS versions are available here: . Search for the IS01 (no other information is needed)

I hope this helps.

Can i get front and back side of pages scanned at a time, if yes then how? how can i scan a book of 50 pages by giving one command?

What scanning software are you using? In Adobe Acrobat Professional 9, you can set up different scan profiles, including duplex scanning. The sheet feeder holds up to 50 pages; you just tell the software to make all pages one pdf.

Adf for Ricoh IS100E

According to the manual, the part number for the ADF Document Assembly is VRC70001, but you may want to verify this with Ricoh before ordering, because the assembly is not shown in the parts diagram, only listed in the chart.

Hope that helps.

Ricoh IS450DE Scanner

The scanner glass is dirty. Its usually caused by a very tiny spec on the glass.

Clean the glass and it will go away.

Adobe interface issues

We have also seen that Adobe Acrobat doesn't produce very clear scans (with a range of scanners). Adobe gives very good pdf file size but it downsamples images.
