Question about Microtek ScanMaker 8700 Pro Design Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

ScanMaker 8700 not working

For some reason, when I turn on the scanner, it no longer goes through it's cycle.  It is silent, and regardless of what software I use, it is not recognized.  This was a fairly expensive device, and I've treated it very gently.  So, what could it be?  Is it possible for a user to repair?  Perhaps it's a switch or other replaceable part?  I sure hope so.  My wife has been mocking me, because her <$100 scanner has worked for years without fail.  
If not user fixable, where does one take a scanner for repair?
Thanks,  Paul Christy

    Problem is the same. Scanning lamp comes on but no movement. Front panel green light is solid and center yellow light on panel flashes.

I believe it's something to do with the power supply.

It's not user-fixable, but appears to be a pretty standard switchmode power supply. Any competent tv/video repair place should be able to have a look at it and maybe fix it for you!

My scanner no longer has the internal light that is needed to scan documents. Does the light burn out? And can it be replaced?


Yes, that scanner bulb can fail, as can the circuitry inside that lights it. Microtek's site lists a phone number you can call to check on replacement lamp availability, but you'd probably be better off buying a new scanner. It's not easy to change the lamp, and may turn out not to be the problem after all. Scanners are reasonably priced, and a new one would come with a warranty.

Can I install microtek scanmaker 8700 on imac using snow leopard??I had previously had the 8700 installed on G4 but this has since died - I still want to use scanner. The software states to use Macintosh...


Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6. drv_sw5_v7_565_ad.dmg
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here. http://www.hamrick.com http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#microtek
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin

NEVER buy another Microtek product. They have no authorized repair outlets in the United States, and offer no help even for those of us who bought these expensive units. We are screwed...next time, Epson, for sure.

Error 600


I bought the pro version of the 8700, used it about once a month--very light use. When it died, I found that Microtek won't even sell parts! I agree, NEVER buy another Microtek product! This thing cost me over a $1000 and after one year, NO support! Any company but Microtek.
