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.

Operation error when scanning

Ensure you have the most up-to-date drivers for your i1420: Looks like v3.09 is the most recent. If you are unsure of your version, download and install v3.09, if your drivers are out of date, the install will update your drivers. Test the scanner using the Scan Validation Tool (SVT). This program should be located in the Kodak folder in your start menu. SVT will test the scanner's functionality at a basic level alleviating all third party software variables. Please consult your owner's manual if you are unsure how to initiate a scan in SVT. If the 1420 scans perfectly then you need to contact IRIS for support:

I have connected the TMA to my hp scanjet and I have put a slide in it, but when I scan it, all I get is a scan of the whole glass and the slide is black.

When scanning slides and negatives the scanner lid lights up so light passes through the slides and negatives and the image is picked up by the sensor.
If the image of the whole glass is black then most likely the lamp in the lid is faulty.

Black and white photos from many years ago now have a blue-green hue on them when they are scanned. it started after I scanned old slides.

Did you make changes to the scan type when you scanned the slides? It sounds like you have the scanner set to do a negative image as a slide would need.
Check the preferences for the scan type.
The scanning manual is available on Canon's Website.

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.

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.
