Question about Microtek ScanMaker 5950 Flatbed Scanner
Help? I loaded and reloaded software per instructions,using scan wizard. Using Windows XP, 1 GB memory, lots of hard disk space, etc. Another older microteck scanner, with adf-700 works fine. Used it before and after trying to use the scanmaker 5950, successfully. the 5950 scanner goes through the motions of a flatbed scan and adf scanning, one or multiple pages, but all I get is a solid black image. Doesn't matter whether a preview is done or not. Tried to circumvent by using the Windows scanner and camera accessory program with XP, but get the same result. I unlocked, then relocked and unlocked the scanner again (turn knob on the bottom with a coin, as directed by the program). Power supply and usb2 cord works with different microteck scanner (adf-700). What is wrong? What can I do. Hope it is something ridiculously simple I have overlooked. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
This particular scanner may not run to NTFS instructions.
Check Windows Help in my computer- for program Compatability
and try to reset the software to run as Windows 98 - it may work.
