Question about Epson Perfection 1660 Photo Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning slides -

I have not had this problem in the past, only recently. When I scan slides, they will start out OK, then after a couple passes, the scanner will produce a 'negative' instead of a photo of the slide. I am trying to save them in a file to transfer to a CD. Can you assist? I thought of re-installing the software.

After 2 yrs unused have decided to run in new dell


Did you plug in the scan unit and then installed the software?
If you did you will have to unplug or turn off your scanner then uninstall your software.
Reboot and the with the scanner turned off reinstall the software. If the install asks you to plug in your scanner, turn it on. If it asks you to reboot, then reboot. After rebooting, turn on the scanner then start the Easy Scan Utility. This should work.
It worked for me.

Is there a manual that shows how to scan slides


Hello,

Here is the support site for your scanner:

Canon LiDE 600F Support

Under the Drivers & Downloads there are a couple manuals. The Quick Start Guide, which is a PDF file and the On Screen manual which is an exe file. The PDF will open right up. The other you will need to download the file to your desktop and when the download completes you need to run (double-click) the file to install it.

Note: This scanner does not support scanning of Mounted slides. (See Footnote #5 on Page 9 of the Quick Start Guide.)

You may be able to unmount the slides carefully and follow the instructions for scanning film. You might try that on a less desirable slide before unmounting them all. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Can't scan slides on Epson 4490


Please make sure that the option cable on the back of the scanner is seated properly.
You may need to trash and re-install the drivers.
To get the most recent driver compatible with your operating system, please log on to epson.com and go to the drivers and support page.

Noise during scanning


Not really these are sealed units - nothing to repair. If it works grit your teeth and bear it. If you open it up and try to lubricate the offending parts the chances are you will kill it dead.

Scanning slides with the Epson Perfection 1250


To be honest, I have no idea of how you were able to scan larger transparencies in the past. The scanner and its software were never designed to do this and there is no workaround.
