Question about Epson Perfection V200 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Epson Perfection V200 Photo scanner

I've tried every possible method I can think of to get my scanner working (reinstall of software, etc...) and the damned thing just wont work anymore. The blasted thing turns on fine but the fraking scan light wont anymore and I'm reasonably sure that the thing is burnt out. I've barely used the scanner since I bought it less than a year ago and I'm wondering if there's maybe a home brew method of repair or perhaps just an avenue I haven't thought of yet. I can't afford to take it to a repair center and I certainly can't afford to buy a new one. And I never filled out the warranty card so I doubt there's a rednecks chance in China of getting Epson to replace it. I'm running XP SP3...if that helps. I don't think the service pack is an issue so much but one never knows...

You have tired all the computery things seemingly
but it is work trying some more
Remove all software.- using the Epson Uninstall routine .
and just to be sure go to Programs.Epson and maually delte all you can find.
Make sure that when you re install- the computer is off line and the ant virus program is disabled.
That should sort the problem Computer wise.
When you go to operate the scanner- does it then go through the motions of Scanning but no light - is that it?
If it is - there is nothing for it but to replace ther scanner
To bad about the warranty card but if you have the sales recieipt
And purchased less than a year ago - the the seller has a responsability [UK wise any way]
But a pleading message toi Epson may surprise you too.

I can not open my scanner epson perfection 2400 photo.


Sounds like there is a problem with the driver. It is more than likely a software problem on your computer.Did you install a software disk for it? Was the error message on the scanner itself or on the computer? Your best bet might be to uninstall the software and then reinstall the software, but that is all I can tell you with the limited information you gave.

Epson Perfection v200 stopped working on my imac


Try to scan using epson scan to isolate the issue. You can launch epson scan from applications. If you can scan using epson scan, call adobe to troubleshoot further on photoshop.
If you get an error epson scan cannot be started or if it won't launch. It could be connection or driver issue.
To uninstall/re-install twain on mac, follow the instructions:
- go to applications. Trash epson scan and epson scanner monitor
- Go to library then application support. Trash epson scanner module.
- Go to library then image capture. Trash twain data sources.
- Go to the hard drive. Click on user. Click on the name of your computer. Click on library. Click on preferences. Click on epson. Trash epson scan.
- Empty the trash.
- Restart your mac.
- Log on to support.epson.com. Type in v200 in the search box on the top right corner of the page then click search. click on the first search result. Click on the drop down box and select macintosh operating system instead of windows. click on the second driver down, epson12527.dmg then click on download now. Select no thanks, i prefer not to receive this information then click accept. Install the epson scan installer after the download.
- Then try to scan using epson scan.
If epson scan won't launch or you get an error, try a different usb cable.

Goodluck.

Scanned pictures has thin blue line running through it


I had the same problem with My Espon Perfection V500. I called tech support and they had me do the following sequence.

1. Turn off the unit
2. Unplug the lid from the base
3. Replug in the lid.
4. Turn the unit back on
5. Go into the Epson software in Professional mode, Configuration, Other and select Reset All
6. Rescan the picture.

It worked after that. Of course it also lost all my preset sizes in my Custom box and any other settings I had. I suspect the lid plug is what the problem was.

Another word to the wise. To test it I put in a picture that was laying on my desk and rescanned it and was disappointed to see the line in the result. A few minutes later I discovered that this particular line was in the original picture.

Hi-

Are you in china? if light is busted then chances are it needs replacement, you are still within warranty call 562-276-4382 for support and referral for free servicing on the scanner if you are in the states.
