The start button on my N1220U scanner no longer initiates a program. I have attempted numerous solutions.

You have to decide how much trouble you are willing to put into this problem. At this point you have deleted and reloaded the software and drivers, which is the most typical fix. The self test says it is functional but it does not physically test a bad switch. A replacement of this same model sells for under $30, including shipping, on ebay. CNET reports a release date of June 10, 2002. It may be time to move on since it cannot be repaired for the cost of a replacement.

Give this a try (found online):

Download Irfanview:

Open the main app "i_view32.exe"

With the scanner hooked up, click onto the "file" (tab)

Click "Select TWAIN Source .." and select your scanner in the source box (if it is listed, the driver is functioning)

Click file (tab) then "Acquire"

Hope this helps.

Scanner software can't find the scanner anymore

From the menu you have to take the source first
Sources could be scanner, camera etc.
Make sure you have the scanner selected before you try to scan

Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer

I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!

Unable to scan

Hi Franklin_mus,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

It seems to be the problem of the Drivers and incomplete installation. Please uninstall the Scanner and do a complete installation step by step.

Let me know if you need any further assistance from me. Have a Nice day.
