SOURCE: Will not work

Have you tried another batt, reason being is that if the batt. is dead and the power works but is not connecting inside then it gives the indication that nothing works. If you can check batt. and find power then look for fuse. Now fuse may not look like a regular fuse, if you can open and look in the power supply area then and check fuse resistors, diodes anything that could be open.

I think you need to download "widesystem" to get the drivers.

More info on the web site - select your scanner model from the dropdown list.

Is it whole unit of supply caused problem? or which part exactly?
Is the supply with adapter? or internal problem?
Problem is not stated clearly.
If you meant, the supply is the adapter format unit AND if it is LCD or LED, you can get another one from eBay or other online shops easily.
Otherwise, you can replace either internal parts or a power outlet part by simple soldering.

Camera B error for crystal XL 40

You are right, it is very likely!. These type of scanners either use multiple cameras or use multiple mirrors to break a segment into a focussable area and do electronic stitching. (Electronic stitching is another painful area, the scanner has to 'create' a true image removing duplicate pixels). Also with Lens there is focal length aberration. Please note even the brochure carries the statement, "Torsion stabilised" suggesting that it is succeptible for misalignment. The mirrors are kept in position by rubber pads and tiny springs, but rubber pads being sensitive atmospheric variations, there can be focussing issues. Unfortunately you cant even kick the scanner accidentally or on purpose!
