    Have a Microtek ScanMaker 6000--inside of glass has been dirty (fingerprint smudges) from day one! There are no screws ANYWHERE in sight. Product appears to have snap on frame over the glass. Is it possible to pop the lid without breaking the entire assembly? Oh, the the red lock button on the bottom will not turn to lock the scan assembly either...



    Next problem: M-tek ScMkr 6000 constantly aborts it's scan--produces black or white pages to the tune of a huge squeal-- or totally locks up and the entire pdf document is lost if not previously saved. OS is Windows XP w/SP 2, pdf program is Adobe Pro 6.0. Any suggestions and answers to source of problem?

    Cleaned without any probems !!!

    You need to understand the there are snap grips on the back and sides.

    Remove screws and lift up about 1/4 inch.

    Then put pressure on it to slide toward the front.

    To install, insert in tabs at front, slide toward back and genrly push down to reseat the sanp clips.

    Piece of cake !!

Further to Anonymous's response: I will extend his comments:

"Open the lid, pull it up and off and you will see two screws below the hinges. If you have decided to purchase another scanner already, you are clear to proceed. Take these out, pry the halves apart until you hear a click. Push the upper section toward the control panel and the will come apart like a freshly caught oyster."

There is more to it than removing 2 screws. BEFORE YOU BEGIN, after removing the lit, slide the "LOCK" at the front of the scanner when upside-down. This secures the scanner head from movement related damage.

If you look inside the glass on the right and left walls, you should notice 2 (on each side) clips. You want to carefully wiggle the top so that these come loose. You cannot simply push the top toward the back and have it separate - though the clips look like this would be possible. There are two tabs at the front of the case which prevent this from happening.

No need to remove the front control panel cover, it is not relevant to this process. Also, all the hardware is part of the bottom of the case, so no concerns removing it. Unless you break a clip, then you are in trouble.

Re-assemble in reverse order for these instructions, and voila, clean scanner!

What did you use to clean the glass with?

OK Just Stupid (G).... Open the lid, pull it up and off and you will see two screws below the hinges. If you have decided to purchase another scanner already, you are clear to proceed. Take these out, pry the halves apart until you hear a click. Push the upper section toward the control panel and the will come apart like a freshly caught oyster.

I would not only clean the inside of the glass, but would get a can of compressed air and blow the heck out of the area below the black thing. This should get most of the dust off of the mirrors (3).

I took mine apart and cleaned them, but, if you had problems opening the case, I definately would not try taking this assembly apart. It'll make you cuss.

My s400 works with Vista but not Windows 7, I


It will work with win 7 but it is complicated.

Download driver from the Microtek website
extract the files to your drive
locate the setup.exe file where you extracted the files
after the driver is installed reboot the pc

Now for the fun part...

Once PC is fully rebooted plug in Scanner ScanMaker s400
Windows looks for drivers in “windows update” and the “preconfigured driver folder”
Windows cannot find a driver.
Close “Driver Software Installation” window
Open Device Manager
Device manager shows yellow bang next to “USB scanner” under “Other Devices”
Right click on usb scanner
click “update driver software”,
Click on “Browse my computer for driver software”
Click on “let me pick from list of device drivers on my computer”
Click on “Imaging Devices”
Click Next
Under Manufacture there is no Microtek
Click on “Have Disk”
Click on Browse
Locate ScanWizard 5 V6.63 folder
Locate Disk 1
Locate Vista
Locate X86
There is a list of INF files
Choose first inf file, “Mii_x86_004.inf”
Click Open
Click OK
Now under Manufacture two entries are listed, Microtek and Microtek Driver Team,
On the other side there is a list devices s400 is not listed
There is an entry for 4800 Scanner
Select it and click next
An “update Driver Warning” opens select yes
Window now shows successful driver update.
And the scanner is listed as 4800 scanner
Click close
Close device manager
Open Scan wizard program
Scanner works fine.
The scanner will not work nativly with windows scanning.

How do I clean the inside of the glass on the Epson 3490 Scanner?


Disconnect and remove the lid. Remove the two screws on the back of the base. Then use a screwdriver or flat blade to slightly open the back seam. Beginning at the back, run a blade up inside the upper part of the side seam. You will need to release three catches on each side. Once the sides are loose, raise the back of the top, while pushing forward, and the two snap catches at the front will release. The top then lifts off and you can clean the glass. Reassemble in reverse order.

Microtek Scanmaker i900 made a few clunking sounds while scanning. Then once the scanning mechanism got to the back of the scanner it seemed to have gotten stuck and could not reverse. It bumps a few...


Is your lock/unlock mechinism underneath in the unlock position?
I have a scanmaker 4800 and am assuming ours have basic similarities.
Mine has 2 round magnets that are visible when the glass is removed.
Once they fell out of place when I took it apart and I had to reglue them in. Is anything in the pathway of your carriage rail?(I don't know what else to call it) but a little wheel on the right side slides up and down this rail and maybe one of those little round magnets fell out and is blocking it.

It is possible to clean the inner side of the glass. First you need to remove the scan module by removing two screws on each side, then remove the cable. Carefully take out the module. You will notice 4 small screws in the side, after removing which you can detach the LED module. Remove the vertical screws and this will detach the Lens Module. Now you will have access to the inner side of the glass. Ensure that the electronics, the Lens module and the LED are carefully placed back and cable connected properly. There is a small spring plate screwed along with the LED module, which needs to be placed properly. Please do not use any sharp instrument.

Yellow Streak on Images


I took the scanner apart. Then using a dampened eyeglass cleaning cloth, I gently cleaned the 3 internal mirrors.
No more yellow streak! :)
