Scanner connected to USB port but will not operate
THe Artec 1236 is connected to a USB port, shows in the Control Panel (Scanners/Cameras) but cannot connect operationally. The test scanner line text is gray. I can find only the one USB cable connection. I can find no driver disk (and don't know if one is needed). Operating system is Windows XP Pro.

This will mean the input on the first device is 120 V and input on the 2nd device is 230 V. Right? If so Yes you can use this if it belongs to the same scanner however you will have to plug the power into a 230 V Circuit. You cannot adjust, manipulate, change the Volts/Watts/Amps under any conditions. If the 203 V (Out put) plug is the same as the 120 V plug and there is a place to plug it in to the scanner then go for it. Volts/Amps/Wwatts/AC/DC are very specific to a specific device.
How to get the Artec 1236USB/Ultima 2000 scanner working in Windows
Vista. Note that this how-to skips the various UAC prompts that occur
throughout the process.
1. Right click on the Setup executable (whatever the name is, also
assumes the full 22MB file) and then select the Compatibility tab. Set
compatibility settings to Windows XP (Service Pack 2), and set the
program's Privilege Level to run as administrator.
2. Install the scanner drivers and reboot the computer.
3. Go into Control Panel, select System, then select the Device Manager.
Select the scanner, which should appear as an unknown item on the
list. Right click on the unknown and select Properties, then select the
Driver tab. Select the Update Driver button and let it search for the
Artec drivers. A warning will appear regarding the lack of a digital
signature. Tell Windows to install the driver anyway.
4. Reboot computer.
5. Search for Scan32.exe or open an Explorer window and drill down to c:\windows\twain_32\artecusb\.
6. Right click on Scan32.exe and select the Compatibility tab. Set
compatibility settings on scan32.exe to Windows XP SP2 and make sure the
executable can run as an administrator.
7. If desired, repeat this process with ScnPanel.exe in c:\program
files\artecusb\scanpanel\. My personal opinion is that ScnPanel.exe is
redundant, the aforementioned scan32.exe file being far more flexible.
It only serves to use up resources, so I wouldn't bother with making the
file compatible and would just remove it from the Startup group.
go to control panel, under device manager uninstall imaging device (scanner) and click scan for hardware changes, if found new hardware occurred click next and choose no, not this time tab / choose install from the list specific location option tab / choose don't search i will choose the driver to install / click show compatible hardware tabs and select scanner type appeared.
Click HERE to download the drivers for the following operating systems--
If you are using XP, it probably won't work and it looks as though it isn't supported beyond the operating systems above.
After you click the link, you will need to wait 90 seconds before the download will start, don't click in the center of the screen it will try and get you to install something else. After the 90 seconds it will ask you to type in a code in a box, look at the image to the right of the box to get the code. Submit the code and voila.
Click on FREE DOWNLOAD and wait for the 30 second countdown then click on the big blue Download link that will appear. The file should start downloading. FYI... The filename only shows Ultima 2000 but it also contains the 1236 drivers as well. I renamed the file and forgot to put 1236 in there so don't worry.
quite possible the scanner motor finnaly gave out but lets look at other things first
try connecting to another usb port on comp before that completly take out all of the scanners drivers and programs this could be a simple file corrupt
i know you tried this but sometimes putting a new driver over old driver doesnt usually change the old drivers properties this is when you completly take out all drivers and software and start from scratch for this scanner
i dont believe this is made by epson. however, the drivers for an old unit is usually not transferred over. The cost to make drivers for an old machine is very expensive for a small group of people. I recommend you get a new one, the costs are minimal and you will get much nicer features.
