Question about Umax Astra 2000U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanner screen My scanner developed a thin green line down the left and a broader yellow line down the right; they both increased in width until I was left with a space only large enough to scan a postcard. I would let it rest after about three scans and could get the narrower bands back. Today I went to use it again, but this time the entire screen was dark green and, unlike the earlier banding, not even translucent. The lamp is on, no less bright than as new, and it moves as it should.

Screen too large for pc


Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

Under the subheading Screen resolution in the middle, does it state
1400 x 1050?
That is the native screen resolution.

If not;

1) The down arrow with the green tip, and green 'cap', is a Slider.
Left-click on it, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now slide it to the left, or right, until 1400 x 1050 appears.

2) Also;
The Color quality to the right is supposed to state -
Highest (32-bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right, and in the drop down list click on -> Highest (32-bit)

Go to the bottom right, and click on Apply.
Now go to the bottom right, and click on OK.
A small window may come up, and state that these settings will take effect, unless you do not want them to.

You want them to. Do nothing, allow the countdown.

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''


Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.
To see the Total Call Time or the life timer counter, On the standby screen type the following code *#92702689# (Easy way to remember this is ? *#war0anty#). And it will pop up a message that shows the life timer in hours and minutes.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.


REQUIREMENTS:
The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. lifetimer.pm file: Download Here
PROCEDURE:
1. Download and Extract the lifetimer.pm file, and Download Nemesis Service Suite.

2. Install Nemesis Service Suite on your Computer, It won?t take much time.(select the first option)

3. Install Nokia Cable Drivers (No need to install, if you have Nokia PC Suite already installed)

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner 



7. It Will take a few seconds to scan, and it will load up the software interface after communicating with the Phone.

8. Click the ?Phone Info? Button.


9. On the Bottom, Select and open the ?Permanent Memory? Tab, which is next to the Fbus info.


10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted lifetimer.pm file on your PC. 


11. After the lifetimer.pm file is opened , it will immediately start writing it to the Phone?s EEPROM Area.




12. The Procedure will end when the progress bar reaches 20%. This is normal , and on the bottom right side, it will display its done.

13. Unplug the Phone, and Restart it.

14. After boot up, Check the life timer .


Note: This method has been tested on following devices: Nokia 6630, 6670, 6680, 5500 sport, 5700XM, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N70, N72, N73,N76, E50, E51, E61i, E65, N80, N91, N95, N95 8GB, 5800XM Mobile devices. If you want to try it on other S60v3 or S60v5 mobiles, do it at your own risk.


Caution:
  • Power Failure During Writing will cause damage to the Phone, And there is a chance that it might brick the phone as well.
  • Loose, worn out Data Cables Might fail the Writing process, and there are chances of damage to the EEPROM area of the phone.
  • Do not attempt this with phones that are not included in the confirmed list.

Getting a black strip in copy mode on X6575 lexmark printer. No line in print or test mode


Most likely a page was scanned with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Unwanted verticle line on fax copies


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page. If this is the cause you will also find that faxes you send to other people will also have this line (although faxes you receive are not affected by this problem with your machine).

To fix the problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

I get lines and can't read the right side of copies that I make with the 1270e. How do I fix this?


You have not specified why you can't read the right side of copies and I am assuming that the reason is because the 'lines' are covering the text. I can offer a solution to the lines issue.

Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.
