Scanner turning itself on and off??

Hi, just recently my scanner has decided to start turning itself on and off at random times, running thru the start up motions etc, whether or not the power button has been pushed in or not. Also once it starts going, pushing the power button won't turn it off again. I'm running it on Firewire cable on a powerboard. It's been running fine for the last two months at this house until the last week, I left it on a few hours without turning it off and it started going whacky after that. The scanner is about 8 months old no other problems so far. Thanks, any help would be much appreciated!

    Well I wouldn't try fixing it myself, and I know I can return it to the vendor to get it fixed but Microtek has a BAD reputation for fixing their products so I really just wanted to know if anyone has any idea what might be causing it, not so much how I should fix it?

    Thanks

I do not think u should try to fix it as it would void the warranty since your scanner is only 8 months old. Get it fixed by returning it to the vendor.

HP5300C Cannot Find Scanner message from PrecisionScan SW


Does it show up in your hardware profiles? What does it say on details when you right click the scanner? When you installed the driver, was it before your plugged in the USB? You may have to uninstall and reinstall it again, this time use the one from HP's website with any patch if applicable.

If you have successfully used it in the past, follow the install prompts and restart.. instead of using the products software, use Windows included scanning program which is much better than the proprietary one designed by HP. As long as you have the proper driver installed your system will know how to apply it.

After 2 yrs unused have decided to run in new dell


Did you plug in the scan unit and then installed the software?
If you did you will have to unplug or turn off your scanner then uninstall your software.
Reboot and the with the scanner turned off reinstall the software. If the install asks you to plug in your scanner, turn it on. If it asks you to reboot, then reboot. After rebooting, turn on the scanner then start the Easy Scan Utility. This should work.
It worked for me.

SCAN ORDER


This is almost impossible! THe scanner will scan only one page/image at a time and immediately stored. The roller can pickup only the top page. Are you converting them to a multipage PDF file? Is there any setting in creation of PDF file? If problem still persists, try and reinstall the software after uninstalling the existing version.

Random black lines on scanned slides


Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.

For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents
