Having recently been given an older SC110, upon power-up, it goes through it's "gyrations' with lamp on, then the copy button led with flash six times, then repeat, and the screen will read "lamp source fail."

I have a Agfa
DuoScan F40 Flatbed Scanner. It appears that the scanning function is not
working. Light is not turn on.Blank white paper as a result. I wonder
if we could somehow mod the scanner lamp since it is nearly impossible
for us to buy the scanner lamp nowdays,even Agfa support say so. The
function of this lamp is similiar to a torchlight.It will brighten the
document that we want to scan during the scanning proces.What if somehow
we manage to use other device other than the lamp it self like
superbright LED(20 watts) or another lamp scanner from dead scanner
macine.I think it will work.Anyone care to comment....
There are a few reasons this might happen. 1) Check if the transport lock is in the locked position. Unlock the unit if it is locked. 2) An error occurred. Try restarting the computer, unplug the scanner, wait 10 seconds and reconnect the scanner. (This fixes issues where the software isn't running/fully loaded or the connection isn't solid).
Try a new USB cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub in the middle, try a direct connection. (Bi-directional communication is needed and this may show as an error if it is lost.)
3) Try unplugging the scanner from power and plugging it back in.
4) Try unplugging the optional accessories. If they fail, the unit may indicate a failure.
5) The lamp may need to be replaced.
6) Something else may have failed. Consider if it is worth having the unit serviced.
When you first turn the scanner back on, the READY light will blink, indicating that the diagnostics are in progress. If the Ready LED and Paper Jam LED blink 8 times, the error indication is "Light Check Fail (ADF)" or "Flatbed /ADF inverter check error".
Followings are the solution for the above problem:
1. Lamp is on? Yes. CCD error, Optical assembly is to be replaced. 2. Lamp is on? No. Flatbed or ADF Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced. 3. Lamp is on? Yes. Issue resolved. 4. If the Lamp is still off, then Lamp is to be replaced. 5. If the issue still persists, then you may have to contact the authorized Avision Service personnel for further diagnosis and suggested repair or replacement.
When you first turn the scanner on, the READY light will blink, indicating that the diagnostics are in progress. Observe the front panel Error LED (Red) closely. In a short time, the Error LED indicates the results of the offline diagnostics as explained below.
Ready LED(Green) is off and Error LED(Red) indicates 7, the error indication is"Face down light check failure".
Followings are the solution for the above problem:
1. CCFL is on? Yes. CCD error, Optical assembly is to be replaced. 2. CCFL is on? No. Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced. 3. CCFL is on? Yes. Issue resolved. 4. If the CCFL is still off, then CCFL is to be replaced.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.
You need to check the blinking times of the Paer jam LED. Then check the followings:
1. If the lamp is on, then ADF Switch is malfunctioning. Disble or short the switch.
2. If the lamp is off, then it is Flatbed or ADF Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced.
5. If the Lamp is still off, then Lamp is to be replaced.
6. If the issue still persists, then you may have to contact the authorized Avision Service personnel for further diagnosis and suggested repair or replacement.
Hope the above information is helpful.
Please revert if you have any doubt.
Are you using a Kofax SCSI card or an normal SCSI controller like Adaptec?
By using a normal SCSI controller, is there an ASPI driver problem after a
WIN XP update? After an update check the ASPI dlls in \sytem32. They should be version
4.71 or higher.
Check the SCSI connector pins and the terminator. If available change the cable.
Scanner check: Is the green lamp (Ready) on or is the red lamp (Error) on?
- green lamp on: the internal self test is ok, but the internal SCSI interface may possibly faulty.
- red lamp on: the internal selftest detect an error. It's possible that the DC/DC power board, the CPU board or the power supply inside the scanner is defective. After reassembling the front side camera you will see at the bottom a PCA board with some LEDs whitch indicate by red light the different voltages when power is on. You find the different voltages printed at the PCA close to the LEDs. In case on or more LEDs don't shine the according DC/DC transformer on the PCA is defective. Futher you see LEDs at the camera PCAs. They should be on too.
In case the CPU board has an defect you must have an special Kodak activation tool to unlock an new or used CPU board after exchange.
Try scanning a double sided document in duplex mode. Reverse the page and scan again. Make sure contrast/rightness settings are okay. If one side output is still not okay, then it possible that the lighting has failed. Either loose contact or failure of the lamp. Some scanners have LEDs and some have a lamp.
The E6 Scanner lamp can be substituted by a standard F8T5CW lamp. It is 12 insches long, uses 8 watts, is in the T5 tube size with two prongs at each end and cool white, not warm white. The replacement lamp works fine.
