I have a 4200F scanner. I am scanning a scrap book page, which use to take a couple of minutes now is ten minutes or more before a picture appears on the screen. A tech earlier today said to plug the USB...

I had a similar problem - I fixed it by connecting direct to a USB 2.0 port rather than going through an old hub, which is maybe what the tech meant. I take it you haven't accidentally set the res too high?

Adjusting the lamp

Hi,  This is normal for the 4200F and it's just the time taken to warm the scanning lamp up. Once it's warmed up it shouldn't need to go through the process again for any additional scans, unless it's had long enough to cool down again of course.
I've noticed from another answer to an earlier question that if it's a big problem you can change the following keys in your registry:

 Energy save changed to 1
 Lamp Off Time changed to 0

Looks like this would prevent your lamp switching off at all unless you unplugged your scanner which would undoubtedtly shorten your bulb life. It may be a better idea to play about with the 'lamp off' key number until it just stays on long enough to not cause you problem.

Cheers, Derek

Cannon scan 4200f light stays on

There is a lamp shut-off time adjustment in ScanGear. Go into ScanGear's Advance Mode and click Preferences. One of the four tabs will have an option for Lamp Shut-Off time. Set it as desired.
