SOURCE: re:stratford labs PS-01 Photo Scanner

The steady blue light signals only that power is coming in the unit thru the USB cable - nothing more.
If the scanner is powered but it's not recognized as attached (i'm assuming that you have checked the the unit in another Mac - or even a pc, it doesn't require any driver to work - and got the same result) then the defect is hardware - the image and control processor inside the scanner has failed.
Since it cannot be repaired or replaced that means that this scanner is dead, time for a new one.

SOURCE: I just got a Stratford

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like that this is a common problem with this unit. Basic troubleshooting to fix this is to reinstall the drivers/software of the unit. If this will not fix the problem then you need to contact the manufacturer. Stratford is already aware of this issue. Here's the support number 888-550-9998.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I have a Stratford Labs unit IS-505. is there any way I can use this on my iMac?

If you can plug it in to the USB port and open Image Capture (this is a built-in application) and see your scanner there, then chances are good that it should work. If you don't see it, try adding it under Print & Scan in System Preferences. Good luck.

Where can I get the software for the Stratford Labs GFP-001 digital image copier for Windows 7?

The manufacturer's website advises that the GFP-001 Image Scanner is, Compatible with Vista and Windows XP systems Only. Requires USB version 2.0 Only.

Sorry, but I do not believe you will be able to find support for Windows 7, unless your scanner functions with one of the generic drivers inlcuded in Windows 7.

I bought an HP Scanjet G4050 as recommended (by John Lewis?s) for use with my new Macbook Pro laptop bought at the same time. This was somewhat over a year ago, and I have used the scanner lightly, but...

Hi there, you are very near in the solution. Just today i solve the same problem manually. When the system ask this message "where I want the image saved " 1st select the path -- My computer/C:/program file/HP scan jet/ select here the Scanner Icon and press Ok. I mean just follow the location of installation file of your scanner. After that scan the image or else , you will get the success. Thanks & waiting for your success feedback.

Can't calibrate new Stratford Labs GFP-001

Can't calibrate the new Stratford "Digital Image Copier" GFP-001.
Followed all instalation instructions till I got to the part where it said that the unit had to be calibrated for the first time used. It said to "Click" on the "calibrate" button to perform the calibration,
but there was no calibration button shown, or no on screen desplay pop-up. Would like to know what I can do to rectify this problem. I am using an Acer Laptop with "Vista Home Premium";
which has 2.0 USB Ports which is called for. Does this device need to be calibrated, or can it be used without the required calibration?
Thank you,
Gerry Hall

I purchased a stratford labs digital image copier model GFP-001 to convert slides to digital pics. Have it installed on my computer (windows xp) but can not get it to scan a clear image. No website...

Just found the company that actually makes "Stratford Labs" scanners. Called them very helpful, still sending this one back. They actually answer the phone when you call, that's a plus.
1-847-550-9998 Affillated is the name of the company.
Stratford Labs GFP-001.

Help calibrating

It's on one of the dialog boxes within the software. Click on the Photoimpression6 icon and then click on Get Photos at the left of the menu bar and then click on Acquire from Scanner. This brings up a dialog box and at the lower left corner is a Calibrate button. It should be pressed without any negatives or slides in the viewer.
