All scans with Umax Powerlook III are totally black around the edges with strange color bars where the images should be. This is using Umax Silverfast 6.0 software on a Mac running OS 10.4.11

Sounds like the scanner is dead. only way to be sure that its not a software issue is to try that scanner on another machine. if you get the same issue on seperate machines, its a good bet that scanner is toast. Fortunately, you can usually go to the Salvation Army or Good will, and get a used scanner for 15 bucks, all you need is downloaded drivers and appropriate cables.

How do I connect my Umax Powerlook III to my max 10.6.8 os x?


This scanner is Fast SCSI . It was made in 2001. You will need a card in your Mac for a SCSI interface. The cost of the card and scsi cable, if your Mac will accept one, will probably exceed the cost of a newer, high performance scanner. Time to move on? (Umax were not the greatest scanners even when they were made. Umax was a cheaper brand with mediocre software. So how will you get the image into the Mac once you have a connection? Power PC (OS 9) Mac software will not run on OS X.)

When scanning x-rays, sounds like belt is sticking.


As the scanner will still be under warranty this is best directed at Umax support.

Vertical colored lines in a scan


If the lines appear in the same location everytime, then it is from the scanner glass. Clean it thoroughly. No solvents except Isopropyl alcohol for cleaning.

UmaxUmax PowerLook III Flatbed scanner not support in windows xp


After checking the UMAX site for XP drivers, choose whatever is the latest drivers they provide, and then try to install them as normal. If it installs normally but does not run correctly, right-click on the executable for the scanner program and choose PROPERTIES and then adjust the COMPATIBILITY MODE to Win2000 or WIn98 and try running it again.

If the drivers for the scanner will not install, I had good luck tricking the operating system into installing the drivers by changing the OS description in the .INI file of the driver package, though this is something not so easy to do.

Good luck...
