Question about Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL Flatbed Scanner
The scanner head just keeps moving up and down the scanner, stopping for a few seconds and then starting again. Trying removing software and installing again - no luck. Tried downloading new drivers - no luck, it doesn't seem to be communicating with the computer.
I have contacted another repair company - charges are ridiculous (for just the estimate) please help!!!!!!!!!!!
I have had trouble with this scanner too. After just a year bulb went out. In case it happens to others, there is no way to get a replacement bulb except paying ridiculous amount to Microtek support. JKL Components was able to create a new bulb for me. Worked perfectly. Call Larry: 818-896-0019 ext 124. Very nice, and very helpful

I work for a book bindery, and we have 6 9800XL all of them have had to be replaced twice for that same problem as well as scanlines, and will have to be replaced again fairly soon as they are starting to develop problems again...my advice is go with another brand like epson. They are expensive, but it's cheaper in the long run to buy one of them than to replace a Microtek 5 times

The charges repair companies use are always rediculous. Though I seriously think we are talking about a hardware defect. Since you already tried both new software or new drivers you should contact the manufacturor of the scanner for a solution.
Look up their official site and look for a support area of a contact address (phone or mail).
I hope they can provide an answer to your problem.
