    After a lengthy and expensive visit to the Nikon Shop a while back my LS 2000 was returned as non-functional as the day I sent it to them, (the hardware error message "sense ......" I'd given up on it and was just about to purchase a new scanner. Then I found the suggested fix involving the little brass screw in the gear on the bottom front. Technically challenged as I am it only took me 11 minutes to effect the repair. I gave the screw one turn counterclockwise to start. It worked. Not only will it scan but it does so quietly and with autofocus that is precise and autoexposure that is as near to perfect as I can see. Thanks

The problem is that the scan sledge gets stuck if arriving at end of screw. To fix:
Open scanner by unscrewing the four screws in the back - this will allow ypu to slide the sides slighly backwards and then remove. Then take the plastic front of (press the plastic tap on top with screwdriver). You will the see a small brass screw center bottom at the front. Loosen this a few turn and try again (you may have to try a few times)...

Good luck

That error code means your HDD is dead..
It may be corrupt; it's unusable.
You will need a new SATA HDD.

I was trying to install Mac OS X 10.3 on my G3 iBook, it did not work, and now neither does the iBook.

It sounds like you have a hardware issue of some sort - likely a bad hard drive, due to age. I would suggest taking the laptop to a repair shop (don't bother with the Apple Store, they'll tell you to buy a new laptop or just turn you away). Best of luck!

There are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Wont read/write hard drive

use Apple Hardware Test to diagnose the error::
1 Disconnect all external devices from your computer except the power adapter.
If you have an Ethernet cable connected, disconnect it.
2 Insert the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 that came with your computer.
3 Restart your computer and hold down the Option key as it starts up. A list of available
startup volumes appears. Click Apple Hardware Test and click the right arrow.
4 When the Apple Hardware Test main screen appears after about 45 seconds, follow the
onscreen instructions.
5 If Apple Hardware Test detects a problem, it displays an error code. Make a note of the
error code before pursuing support options. If Apple Hardware Test does not detect a
hardware failure, the problem may be software related.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
