EPSON V700 SCANNER MAKES KNOCKING SOUND WHEN ON BUTTON PUSHED

Hi - I have just purchased an Epson V700 Scanner and when I press the 'on' button it makes a horrible straining and knocking sound. Help!!! All cables are connected correctly. Do I need to send this back, or is it something that I can fix? Thank you, Maree

    Hi Psybheng - Thanks SO much for that. I found the other transportation lock on the lid and all now works well. Best regards, Maree

    There is often a locking mechanism for shipping scanners to prevent damage occurring to the traverse mechanism. Check your instruction manual to remove any mechanical locks like this. They can often be underneath the unit also

I have an Epson Perfection V700 Photo scanner and an Imac version 10.5.8. Are these compatable?


Yes the scanner is compatible with a downloaded driver from epson. however some of the supplied third party software may not be. Also with MACS the push button scan may not work.

Can't use the ''Film selection on epson V700


Make sure the transparency light cable that comes from the lid is plugged in to the back of the scanner. If the cable is unplugged for any reason, the transparency/film options will not be available.

Unplug the power supply from the power port on the scanner then plug it back in after a few seconds and power-up if it isn't already on. This happens to me a lot and this works every time. Frustrating though.
