Epson 1660 Flat Bed Photo Scanner

I cannot seem to turn off the unit without pulling out the power supply in the back.  The On/Off button does not turn the unit off.
Any suggestions?  Otherwise, the scanner works fine.

The Epson scanner (about 8 yrs old) doesn't shut off when attached to an iMac w/the Leopard operating system.  To "solve" the problem I bought a small desktop Canon LIDE 90 scanner that runs on 2.5 watts of power and uses 1 watt on standby mode.  It appears that they all need to be unplugged to shut down the power.

Epson SX100 Scanner makes a loud clicking noise!


On the back of the Epson Perfection 1660 Photo there is a lever that shows a lock and a unlock by where you plug in the wire to the computer. It must be in the unlocked position otherwise it will make that loud clicking noise and not work. Hope this helps.

Flashing red light & noise


I've just discovered that this means the "transportation lock" is on: at the back of the scanner, put the plastic switch into the 'unlock' position. See this Epson support page for more details.
