Scanner my scanner is not working

Posted by on

  • Abbster Aug 07, 2008

    My scanner is plugged in & switched on, but the blue light that is supposed to be on inside it isn't lit. Also my computer doesn't recognise that it's connected. It used to work fine, till recently, now it's broken for some reason.

    On my computer, I tried to get my program that works with my scanner (Scansoft Paperport 8.0) to configure my scanner again but it's not working. The little scanner icon in the bottom right hand corner of my desktop hos a big red cross through it.

    Why won't it work any more?
    If anyone could help me I'd be very grateful.
    Thank you for your time.

Plz tell me the flatbed scanner or pass through scanner is same type or different?


They are different.
A flatbed scanner works like the usual scanners you see - you put a document on a flat surface area and have it covered. Canon Lide is an example.
A pass through scanner works like the usual fax machine system wherein you will have the document to be scanned feed, and as it passes though the imaging part of the machine, it's digital copy is generated.
There are machines that works as both - Brother 185c and Samsung SCX4521F are examples of both flatbed and pass through scanners.

The scanner won't work only makes a little noise when connecting


Make sure the scanner drivers are installed. If they are and the scanner still doesn't work then that means the scanner is bad and needs to be replaced.

Scanner has stopped working


When I had the cable that came with the printer connected to the scanner, and the cable that came with the scanner connected to the printer, the scanner didn't work.

Changing the cables changed everything.
