For months of non use, the bar that carries the light does not move (stuck up) when switched on.

You may need to open the scanner and re-lubricate the steel bars using a lubricant oil. It sounds like the scanner is seized.

did the lamp lights? replace it if not.
if the lamp lights and the comm between pc and scanner is ok and you take black image. then there was a problem on scanner module _light receiver_.

Problem to see any document on my scanner

Is the scanner not recognised or is it Not scanning?

Is the comp recognising the scanner? If not reinstall the driver. Run scandisk on the drive where the OS is installed. Try uninstall and reinstall.

Pls check if the scanner platten is moving, it could be a hardware problem.

Hi Inday, Based on your post/description, there appears to be a mechanical problem with your scanner. It would seem that something is blocking the moving part of the scanner internally. Should you wish to give it a try, you have to open the scanner. Chances are you have to invert with the bottom up to access the screws. There might be 6-8 screws with plastic locking at the sides. Upon removal of the bottom plate, the interior of the scanner would be exposed. There should be practically nothing inside except for a movable bar that is held in place on one side by a guide rail and a plastic toothed belt on the other end. Near the topend would be an electronic board. Check that there is no blockage on the guide rail nor on the path of the roller or the toothed belt. Since this sound more of a mechanical problem (due to the "loud sound" that you heard), it should be visually detectable. Good luck and pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Kind regards from Batangas.
