Check to see if it's locked. Some scanners have a mechanical switch that locks the head so it will not become damaged during shipping.

    Check the taskmanager to see if your computer is fast enough, if it's at 100% load it's not fast enough.
    I first had a AMD 1700 that locked the scanner regularly, changed it to a Intel E5200 and now it works flawless.

I am scanning a project for a client and mid scan the image is offset and the right side is chopped off and there are blank strips of non- scanned document through the image. I have reinstalled the driver...


Visually check the scanner bulb by leaving the lid open and check its' travel. Make sure it is smoothly moving and does not stop, Also, check it for any obstructions. In the meantime, if you have a camera, they're great for a backup!

Microtek scanner freezes when scanning large documents.


Try scanning using Scanwizard instead of using directly in Photoshop. If it freezes again, it might be some problem with your system since there's no indication of hardware conflict. Additional info like Microtek scanner model name and current Windows version. Normally, Adobe wont have any problem regardless the scanner model, as long the appropriate driver installed.

Cannot scan


Does specifically the scanning software freeze or is it the application your scanning into? For example....does it freeze if you insert a picture into word using TWAIN as a source?

If it is actually the scanning component that freezes I would look for third party software that might be conflicting with it. Scan using Adaware or Spybot for spyware, remove the Google desktop and Yahoo toolbar applications if installed, and look for other similar programs like the HP picture viewer which tries to pull media from SD cards and cameras and may be similarly trying to access the scanner.

SCAN STOPS MIDWAY


Are you getting an error/ red light on the scanner button when its on? when scanning from Paint ( File, then from scanners and cameras) does it freeze as well? or only when using epson scan? make sure cable is directly connected from the scanner to your computer, no hubs or anything.. keep me posted.

Have a nice day!!

Have you tried taking the battery out of the scanner and then reinserting it? THis should reset the scanner to some degree.

It really depends which barcodes you scanned in the manual.

Your best chance seems to be a reset to the original settings, for which you may need to look at the manual.
