Hi beergut707,

I see according to the 7200's specification sheet at the Plustek website
http://www.plustek.com/product/7200_feature.asp
that the 7200 is packaged with a 15V, 1.0A output power adapter.

You must be sure to connect this to the device for it to receive its required amount of power to operate its moving parts, which the USB power output of 5V, 100mA will not provide.

If the power adapter is connected to the device and you still get the same message, you'll have to test the power adapter to ensure it is still giving the correct output.
This can be done with a multimeter. If you're not sure how to use a multimeter to perform the test, I suggest you take the power adapter to a PC repair shop or electrical repair shop where a technician can test it for you.

Hope this info helps you to solve your 7200's power problem.
Kind regards

USB ports operate in pairs from a usb host controller. Normally these pairs of ports are side by side (ie parallel to one another along their longest side) each pair of ports can onlhy be supplied with a limited amount of current.

You can try either plugging the scanner into a port that has nothing in its adjacent pair OR

You can buy a powered USB hub that will be able to sustain the current required for your scanner

If you got Silverfast with the scanner, the driver should be on the CD.
But you still can get support from Silverfast for your software. I'm sure they can provide the driver, or can tell you where to get it.

Need AC Power Supply Adapter for Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Scanner


I revisited the Plustek website and found a page where I could send an email to customer service describing my problem. About 24 hours later I received a reply which included an attached order form with the price and the appropriate shipping and tax filled out for the item I needed. The order form instructs one to fill out your particulars and fax the form to Plustek. I have no fax capability so, after a phone call, I was instructed to send the form as an attachment to an email to the customer rep. I received confirmation of my order so, I presume that my order is in the pipeline.
