Question about Acer ScanWit 2720S Film Scanner

Accidently broke Fluorescent Lamp in scanner whilst cleaning

I am gutted because I have had it for a few years know and it has probably only had 10 hrs of total use. The model is Hewlett packard 5300c 7690c. The lamp is a thin Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp measuring 25cm/250mm x 2.6mm approx I have contacted Hp uk and they said that it is non replaceable and would have to replace the flatbed itself which is ridicolous. I am an electrical engineer and cannot understand why you have to buy a new scanner everytime the lamp breaks or deteriorates after hours of use. That sounds like a money making scheme to me.
Please can anyone help me or does anybody know where I could get one of these lamps with the four pin socket that plugs into the driver board. I have found this site http://www.jkllamps.com/index.cfm?action=fam&tid=2&fID=31 with a similar size lamp but have no idea as to matching the rest of the specs of the HP lamp. Thanks in advance

WHEN I MAKE COPY IT IS ALWAYS VERY LIGHT.


First you need to carefully clean the copier optics: Open document glass, use clean, dry and soft cloth to wipe the small mirrors on the scanner. Clean also the fluorescent lamp carefully not to break it. Wipe the document glass both inner and outer sides then securely screw it back. Remove the drum unit and wipe clean the underneath mirror on the laser unit then test the copy quality.

Arm237 f5-02 light goes out after 1 second but should stay on -- lamp ok, cable ok, broke after cleaning optics


It is possible that while the optics were getting cleaned the cable connected to the lamp unit got pulled out enough that it looks like it is connected but isn't connected enough, or the lamp was accidently touched by the person cleaning the lamp and now its bad. I would check the cable that connects to the lamo unit and the CCD first.

Fluorescent lamp fused


In my experience, when the lamp goes out, it's time for a new scanner. if you are willing to try and fix it though, maybe try Ebay or the manufacturer's website. You'll likely spend less time just replacing it though.

Good Luck!

Lamp replacement


Just replace the lamp! It's just a fluorescent light you can get anywhere. You don't need a new scanner, if I had to replace the scanner every time the lamp died I be in the poor house!
