Re: error 600

I bought the pro version of the 8700, used it about once a month--very light use. When it died, I found that Microtek won't even sell parts! I agree, NEVER buy another Microtek product! This thing cost me over a $1000 and after one year, NO support! Any company but Microtek.

Canon DR-9080C gives Low memory message

Duplex scanning, Color Scanning and high-density scanning (600 dpi) cannot go with long documents like 11x17. Change the scanning mode, try one side at a time or reduce the resolution.

CanoScan Lide 25 error message

ok, I solved this problem in an unorthodox fashion but it worked... so far that is. First a little history, I was getting this problem constantly and I was at the point where I was going to dump the machine in the trash... therefore I decided to do a little surgery.
Solution: I ripped off the plastic sides of the scanner and lifted the glass from the front while it was still in the back of the machine. I started to try to scan. After doing that I received a different error. After that error I replaced the glass without the plastic sides and it scanned with no problem. It works for me and it has worked since. Unorthodox? Yes it is, but when I forced a different error and forced recognition. I believe this is a software problem and not a hardware. Good luck to the rest of you. Any questions, I'll try to reply.

Scanning siezes computer and scanner

I believe that what you are having a power issue on the USB port. This port is limited to a certain total amount of power and if you are using other devices on the usb ports they each take away from the total amount available for use. The fix for this issue would be for you to buy a Powered USB Hub, as it has a transformer that plugs into the wall and will avoid using any of the computer's usb power to run the scanner.

Good Luck

Error Code 009 Scanner out of paper

Right-click the VRS icon in the system tray. Select QC Modes and uncheck Hardware Errors. This will stop VRS from flashing the out of paper message.

(Also, ImageNow has it's own prompt when the scanner is empty. You can turn that off in the Scanning Profile on the Properties page.)
