    Hi,
    Thank for your help, that's what I did.

    I reinstalled the driver from Microtek.com, and it work fine.
    I had to calibrate the scanner a few time, and now it work like new,
    that's because I pull the scanner apart and cleaned everything inside, before I try to download the new driver.

Is the scanner not recognised or is it Not scanning?

Is the comp recognising the scanner? If not reinstall the driver. Run scandisk on the drive where the OS is installed. Try uninstall and reinstall.

Pls check if the scanner platten is moving, it could be a hardware problem.

Yellow Streak on Images


I took the scanner apart. Then using a dampened eyeglass cleaning cloth, I gently cleaned the 3 internal mirrors.
No more yellow streak! :)

Scanner problem


Hi BethKay,

What it's telling you is that the "filename" that the scanner/software package is trying to use to save the document being scanned to your hard drive has reached it's limit in the amount of times that it can be incremented by "1". In other words every time you scan a document it is saved to a directory or folder on your PC under a filename which is probably assigned by default. This filename has a "suffix" which is also assigned by the scanner/software eg. filename01.tif (or jpg, etc) filename02.tif filename03.tif and so on. Either I'm way off base or you must have scanned a whole bunch of documents using this naming convention because the scanner/software has run out of numbers that it can affix to each individual file. What you need to do is either 1. Change the folder that you are saving the documents to or 2. Change the pre-suffix filename in order to retain individuality.

Make sense?

Let me know if this helps and good luck.
