    I have the same problem - a warning comes up saying check you have unlocked the scanner. I have uninstalled the drivers as per xerox instructions and installed the latest driver - same dialogue box, just prettier! Anyone with a bright solution?

I just got this. I think it just means the scanner is jammed. May be impossible to fix without taking it apart.

Hi i've seemed to have solved the problem for my scanner? i didn't have the right power lead for it and the one i was using wasn't powerful enough now i've brought another one it seems "touch wood" to work fine?
check the power details on the bottom of the scanner and compare them to the power lead.

good luck!

Xerox 4800 one touch flatbed scanner My new computer has Widows 7 and the scanner will not work with it. Do I need another drive


Hello.


I am a Support Engineer with Xerox Scanners.

The Xerox 4800 do not have a supported Windows 7 driver. The scanner only supports Vista, XP, 2000, ME, and 98. I recommend trading the Xerox 4800 for a supported windows 7 scanner.

Please feel free to contact us by calling 800-648-0410.

    NOTE: The scan lock switch is located on the bottom of the Scanner Module. Make sure the scan lock is completely free. It sometimes hangs at the halfway point.

  3. Press the power switch to the ON (|) position. A 'Warming Up, Please Wait' message will be displayed on the Display Screen. Warm up time is less than 40 seconds from power ON and less than 25 seconds from the Power Saver mode.

Xerox Documate 152 - Scan quality is now V.BAD!


I would go to Xerox.com and look up their knowledge base. Here is a copy of data from their site related to this problem:

Symptom: Scanned images have poor image quality, are fuzzy, unclear, or hard to read.
Cause: There are several things that can lead to poor image quality including the scan settings, dirt on the scanner, and driver problems. Solution: Note: If you scan as a PDF file and your scans look fuzzy when viewed in PaperPort, try right clicking on the file and selecting "Open" to open them in Adobe Reader. If they display fine in Adobe Reader then there is nothing wrong with the scans, it is simply that they are not being displayed well in PaperPort.

The following solutions can help resolve poor scan quality.

Solution 1 - Adjust the scan settings

Try increasing the resolution of your scan. 300 dpi to 400 dpi should be clear for most images
  • If you are scanning in Black and White, try Grayscale or Color. Some images will not display correctly in Black and White
  • You can also try adjusting the brightness and contrast
  • Note: For information on adjusting your scan settings, refer to the user guide for your scanner
Solution 2 - Clean and Calibrate the scanner

Note: Calibration only applies to sheetfed scanners.

Use the link below for instructions on cleaning and calibrating (if applicable) your scanner:
Solution 3 - Reinstall the scanner driver Select a link below for instructions on reinstalling your scanner driver:

Scanner locked. how to unlock


The scanner latch should be on the left side of the scanner.
You can try powering it off and on. Something is catching the scan head.
You should have a one year warranty on that product also if you need to call Xerox.
