We get a pop-up that says tyhe scanner cannot communicate with the computer. We had just used the scanner a week ago and all was fine. Robert Schneider

First reboot your computer, then check you connection with from the scanner to the computer. By this I mean pulling it out of the scanner if its not permanently mounted on the scanner. Then pull out the computer side and push it in and try to scan. If this doesn't work then if you have another USB cable swap it out with the one on your scanner and try and scan again. The only communication link with your scanner is that cable.

I hope this helps you out.

Failure in initialization of Scanner. Scanner is offline or , scanner is turned off.

First check if the scanner is working in 'offline' mode by 'counting' a few pages.
Connect to the comp, if SCSI is the interface, you need to start the scanner first, if USB you can connect the scanner even after comp powering on. If the scanner is not recognised, reinstall driver software and scanning software.

Scanner link failure

This scanner requires a "Parallel or Centronics" cable and if you have a newer computer, you may only have USB connections. A "USB to CENTRONICS" cable may do the trick, but I'm not sure. Check on the web for one.

Nikon LS-2000 scanner gives error 0x04620000

Stepper Motor Failures
Within the first 6 months of purchase I had to return the scanner twice to replace the stepper motor. The symptoms of stepper motor failure are a loud grinding noise during scanning followed by the enlightening message:
"The scanner has reported a hardware error. The present function cannot be continued. Sense: 0x04620000"

service required to fix stepper motor

Black output

This type of issue could be related to different sources. First step I would do is check to see if the lamp is coming on within the scanner, possible bad lamp. One other possibility would be the CCD failure, it may not be moving across to capature your film. Also, when attempting to scan does the scanner sound normal or abnormal. If abnornal sound is occurring then CCD could jammed/stuck hardware failure. Last step would be uninstalling/reinstalling your scanner software, check for updated drivers from the manufacture of your scanner. At this point if none of these suggestions helped then test scanner on a different computer system.

HP Scanjet 4600 problem

that means your scanner has a problem internally. bring it to the nearest service center or buy a new one coz its much practical than paying a service fee more than the cost of a new one.
