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....
Hi Friend, You are in need of Drivers for your Snapscan 1212(AGFA),u can down load it for free from the below link,
U have not mentioned which OS are u using but i will provide the link from that u may select the particular OS and download the file which one is needed.And u can also download the user guide for this model
The VueScan program will work, but you have to go into device manager (Right-click "My computer" choose "Manage" select "Device Manager")
In device manager, you will probably see the scanner detected with a yellow triangle. Right-click the scanner and choose "Upgrade Driver" then choose "browse my computer for updated driver" and browse the the "VueScan" folder on your C drive.
Once you do that Vista will update to the VueScan Driver and you'll be ready to go (once you pay the nice folks at VueScan so that your scans don't have watermarks on them)
Motti, Have you tried a new cable(USB)from the scanner to the computer.? Does the scanner try to scan something from the unit itself? and just has no communication with the computer. You may also try to uninstall the scanner and software...then rehook the scanner and try to reinstall.
Otherwise to be honest there are alot of inexpensive scanners available now that probably don't cost more than the cable.
Let me know what happens.
