I have 2 Epson V500 Scanners, 1 of them I just have on standby. The one I use daily does not turn on. I tried using the cables of the standby unit already. I checked the fuses on the plugs of both...


  1. Check that the power socket switch is on Make sure your scanner's power cord is securely connected to the scanner and a working electrical outlet.
  2. If your scanner is supplied with a power adapter, make sure your scanner's AC adapter is securely connected to the scanner and a working electrical outlet.
  3. Make sure that the power outlet works. (If necessary, test it by plugging in another electrical device and turning it on.)
  4. Check that the power switch is on at the mains socket. If this is on, carefully check the power cable to ensure it is not damaged and remove then reseat it before attempting to turn the scanner on again. If your scanner has a power button, make sure that the button is depressed so it is turned on. Also, make sure that your outlet works and is not controlled by a wall switch or timer.
  5. Power off the scanner at the mains socket. Unplug the power cable from the socket, then remove and reseat the power cable from the scanner's power cable port. Plug the scanner back in at the mains and ensure the socket is switched on.
  6. If your scanner has a power button, does the power button depress when pressed? Press down firmly on the power button, if it is stiff and does not depress then there may be a problem with the button.

  7. Connect the scanner directly to the mains - not via a surge protector or extension lead. If your unit is connected via a surge protector or a power strip/extension lead, connect the unit directly to the mains socket.
  8. Try another suitable power cable. Check that other electronic devices connected to same power socket have power and try another mains socket and another power cable if necessary. Failing this try another suitable and known-working power cable. Depending on your scanner, a standard "kettle lead" or "figure of eight" power cable is used. If there is power to the scanner (indicated by an illuminated Start light), when a different power cable is used, then the fault is with the original power cable.


If the unit does not power on after following the checks above, contact Epson for support. If your scanner uses an AC adapter, then this may need to be replaced. If your scanner is over 12 months old, you can purchase a replacement AC adapter directly from Epson.

HOW DO I PLUG THE SCANNER INTO MY LAP TOP I CAN ONLY SEE SCART NOT USB PORTS


Mustek 1200 is an old scanner so it's normal that it hasn't usb connection. You have to buy a USB to parallel port adaptor (about 10Euros) in order to connect the scanner with your laptop. Of course you 're gonna use the power supply that you 've got with the scanner in order to power up the scanner.

On the CanoScan 5000 I try to open the Scanner and there is a msg. that says "cannot communicate with scanner...check connection etc." This is not unusual with this lousy scanner. What usually will fix the...


Try using other application aside from the canoscan. Try to use Paint, you just click on File then from scanner. If it doesn't work, check the scanner itself, try to plug it in on another power outlet, if you are using a power surge try to unplug it and directly plug it in to the wall. You should notice the light on the scanner. If it is not litting up, you need to have the scanner serviced due to defective bulb

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.


My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

Hi my HP scan jet 3400c cannot turn on. what is a problem.


The scanner have two ports to connect to PC, USB and Parallel.

It has no Power switch.

Disconnect all cables from your scanner (USB/Parallel and power.

Plug power cable to the scanner, and then plug the power supply to an outlet.

Does it turn on ?

If not, than check the power adaptor.

If it turns on, then turn off your computer, plug the USB/Paralel connector to the scanner and to your PC and turn on your PC.

You should know that you can use only one connection for your scanner at a time, USB OR Parallel.
Parallel for under Windows98, and USB for Win98 and above.

Regards.
