    Thank you Mohanchennai, but yes, it is a hardware problem, and I want to know how to fix it myself. Do you have any idea of how to change the drive belt ?

If the motor (light) does not move after a scan command, it could be a hardware problem. Try uninstalling and reinstalling of the scanner driver.

    Changing the drive belt is easy. Open the box and locate the belt connecting the motor and the 'light patten'. If the belt is intact, the motor may have failed ! Check power connector to the motor. Good luck

WANT TO DOWNLOAD A USER MANUAL FOR THE EPSON V500 SCANNER


Epson Perfection V500 installed. My computer recognizes it and diagnostic note says all okay. B ut when I turn on the power of the scanner, the grren light comes on in the front for about 15-20 seconds and then the scanner makes a loud grating noise and the green light turns orange and keeps flashing. No scan is attempted. TGhe noise sounds like something that should be moving can get started -- but nothing moves when you look at it. Should I take it back where I bought it?

Scanner has racheting noise and red light stays


This noise is caused by the transport lock. Power the scanner off. Lock and unlock the transport lock a few times and then leave it in the unlocked position again and power on.

Epson perfection 2400 photo scanner stuck with flashing red light


You may have accidently pushed the LOCK button - this button is used to LOCK the carriage into place when moving the scanner to another location or shipping it.

Check for a button and the picture of a LOCK, it is usually at the back of the scanner, you can push it left or right, and you have an open lock and a closed lock picture under it. Make sure you didn't accidently push it to the LOCK position when holding the scanner - that loud sound means your carriage is locked and cannot move - once you set the button to UNLOCK this should solve your problem.

Scanner Powers up - does not intiate, cannot be accessed by PC


Power everything down, computer and scanner. Make sure your scanner is connected to the AC wall outlet, and to the pc. Then turn on your computer. Reinstall the driver and software by following this link http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=kVFQIoh3k1nuobYrVg0U002FnSoPZ+wxlW6UdEWrYhTx6DwU003D&tc=6 And download the latest update (2007) and you should be good to go
