Depending on the kind of interface used you may need to buy a new parallel cable or a new usb cable. any computer shop should be able to provide the right cable for a small price.

Hope this helps

cheers

Asking for adapter cable for scanner umax astra 3400


Should be a standard USB device cable. Any half decent home electronics store sells them. The same cable is used to connect most USB printers.

How to install the epson stylus TX100 scanner to my computer?


What OS does your computer have? Go to the Epson support site and download the software for your OS: http://tech.epson.com.au/downloads/category.asp?sCategory=Multi_Functional&id=StylusTX100&EmailAdd=&CanEmail=&SelOS=Y&MetricIDReturned=4036965&sCategory1=Multi_Functional and use the drop down menu to choose your OS. (With Windows 7, I know that the drivers are included in the OS so you can skip this step.)

For best results use a direct connection, with a USB cable that is 6' long or shorter.

Install the full software if it is available for your OS. Then when prompted to do so, make sure the printer is on and connect the USB cable between the printer and the computer. If needed, restart the computer.

In the case of Win7 or any other OS with these drivers included, just set up the printer and plug in the data cable. However, if the drivers are not included in the OS, then the printer may work after plugging in the data cable but the scanner probably won't. In that case, uninstall the generic driver, unplug the data cable. Then reboot the computer and install the one from the Epson site.

See the Epson support site for using the printer's software package. Please note that the buttons on the front of the unit will not work for initiating actions on the computer unless the full software is installed. Thus for Windows 7, you will need to launch your scans from the computer. Paint, Windows Fax and Scan and Photo Gallery (in Live Essentials) all can acquire scans. Some of these programs are also available for and will acquire scans in XP and Vista. (Paint is in XP, Vista and Win7; Photo Gallery comes with Vista and is available for XP and Win7; Fax and Scan is in some versions of Vista.)

I hope this helps.

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?


Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

Scanner


Usually this is a problem with old (parrallel port ) H.P Scanners. Shut down your PC, remoce power of the scanner, remove the data cable of the scanner both at PC as well as at scanner end. Reboot the PC. reconnect the data cable and then the power cable ofthe scanner. Try using it. If you have win98, it should work now. If Win XP_P, reboot your PC, it should work. If the problem persists, try re-installing the drivers.
