Question about Epson Perfection V200 Flatbed 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.
