Question about Plustek Opticbook 3600 Plus A4 Book Edge Pdf Ocr Scanner Barcode Scanner

1 Answer

Scanner produces blank screen, black reproduction. It appears that the scan lamp is dimly lit at the edges only. May be there is insufficient voltage to the lamp, perhaps due a high resistence in the supply line. How reliable are the PSU's to this scanner?

It sounds like it could either be the PSU as you suspect, or the lamp itself. The PSU's in these Plustek scanners are known for being flaky though, so that may very well be the problem. However if you are scanning books they are one of the best solutions available. I would recommend you contact Plustek to see about the repair. 714-670-7713 is their number. Is it primarily books you are scanning? Is it the Plustek Opticbook 3600 as you specified or is it another scanner altogether? Let me know and I can give you some more info here, but it definitely is failing hardware somewhere in the scanner, most likely the PSU.

Blank copies from copier


You don't say what model your fax is.

In general. If when copying you get a Full BLACK page printed then the scanner lamp is not lit. As no light is reflected into the image scanner, it interprets this as BLACK information so therefore only black is printed. Look into the ADF while the document is being scanned and I bet you will see no green light at all. A new Contact image sensor should cure it.

When I turn my Toshiba laptop on,it's black


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Tc1100 Blank Screen


You have identified your problem/fault by plugging in an external monitor and the image is OK. This proves the video card is OK and the fault could be the inverter or most likely the CCFL lamp.
The flickering screen indicated the CCFL lamp is faulty, it is a mini fluro tube which provides the back-light to the LCD. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. It could be faulty and it is easier to replace.

Presario 700 has a blank screen. Started occasionally going to a blank screen, now it stay blank. Will replacing the hard drive correct this problem?


If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing then the hard disk is OK.
Then the fault could be a faulty video cable or connector or CCFL lamp or inverter.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard first.
If this doesn't work then to determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.

KV-34HS420-Sony Tv


well based on ur info, ur tv has a prolem in power supply section, particularly regulation circuit. the regulator of the circuit seems to be mulfunctioning thats why insufficient voltage is coming out from B+ which in turn goes to high voltage circuits thats why the produced picture is insufficient. if this is very technical to u, have it check with a qualified technician.
