This is a good fairly high spec unit so I am sorry to say that I think you need to get it to a repairer for a quote for repairs and then to decide if it is cost effective to repair or simply replace the unit. Is it still under Warranty?

Good luck.

Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF

Scanning in Epson 4180 perfection - trying to scan slide in home mode - positive film - when it scans the slide in its holder it scans the holder & the slide. What do I need to change?


Make sure the white document matt has been removed from underneath the lid. Then make sure that the document type has been changed from reflective to Film etc. If film is greyed out then check the cable is connected properly from the lid to the base of the scanner.

Scanner has racheting noise and red light stays


This noise is caused by the transport lock. Power the scanner off. Lock and unlock the transport lock a few times and then leave it in the unlocked position again and power on.

Grinding noise


The most common problem is that the pulley breaks, you might be able to see it through the glass. looks where the belt goes, and see if the pulley is broken.

also, some people forget to unlock the locking mechanism when the unit gets moved, the locking switch is on the side.

EPSON 350 scans 1/2 photo, makes loud clicking noise.


The chassis bends very easily on this model and the problem can be caused by scanner not being on a level base supported by all its feet.

Epson 4180 scanner w/ possible drive belt problem


Check if you have a toggle lock at the back of your scanner, when you are facing the back of it, its on the right hand side near the tpu cable. toggle that 3x and make sure it on the UNLOCK position.

Awful noise


Please try the following to resolve your issue:
1. Unplug the USB cable and the AC adapter from the back of the scanner.
2. Toggle the Transportation lock (the plastic switch at the back of the scanner) back and forth 5 times, ensuring that the lock is all the way in the unlock position.
3. Reconnect the USB cable and the AC adapter cable, and then try to scan.
