SOURCE: Kodak DS3500 scanner

Are you using a Kofax SCSI card or an normal SCSI controller like Adaptec?
By using a normal SCSI controller, is there an ASPI driver problem after a WIN XP update? After an update check the ASPI dlls in \sytem32. They should be version 4.71 or higher.

Check the SCSI connector pins and the terminator.
If available change the cable.

Scanner check:
Is the green lamp (Ready) on or is the red lamp (Error) on?

- green lamp on:
the internal self test is ok, but the internal SCSI interface may possibly faulty.

- red lamp on:
the internal selftest detect an error.
It's possible that the DC/DC power board, the CPU board or the power supply inside the scanner is defective.
After reassembling the front side camera you will see at the bottom a PCA board with some LEDs whitch indicate by red light the different voltages when power is on. You find the different voltages printed at the PCA close to the LEDs.
In case on or more LEDs don't shine the according DC/DC transformer on the PCA is defective.
Futher you see LEDs at the camera PCAs. They should be on too.

In case the CPU board has an defect you must have an special Kodak activation tool to unlock an new or used CPU board after exchange.

"cycle error" - scanner powers up ok but will not scan due to this error ID=055


Error 55: "Lamp I2C error reading from DAC". Operator log message: "Cycle power, if problem persists, call service.". This error is involves communication errors between the LED AY and the DAC. A couple things can be done to alleviate this issue but unfortunately, as a user, you can only perform the first step. The other steps require a Kodak Field Engineer to complete. First step, upgrade your Firmware. Firmware updates can be found at the following web page: http://graphics.kodak.com/DocImaging/US/en/Support_Center/Document_Scanners/Production/i5200_Scanner/Support/Drivers_And_Downloads/i5000_Series_Scanner_Firmware/index.htm. If you still experience issues following the firmware upgrade, call Kodak Service & Support to schedule a field engineer to be dispatched to your site.

E40 error message on Canon DR5020 scanner


Hi,
The error code E40 is caused by communication failure between CPUs- " Can't communicate with CPU on on Pick-up control CPU(80_SUB)".
The solution is" Check the connection and replace the PCB." This solution also applies to error codes: E41, E42 and E44.
Hope this information is helpful.
regards, TechSatya

SuperPen (Wizcom) does not Communicate with PC


Just bought the pen and I've got the same problem. I've tried 2 PCs, one with XP SP2 and the other Vista (using Vista driver from Wizcom). Both give me the same "cannot communicate with Pen" error message. I've double checked every recommendation I could find on Wizcom's website and the internet, but looks like either the cable or pen is faulty. Would be good to know if the new cable they're sending you fixes the problem.
