Not moving < Agfa Duoscan T1200 Flatbed

During scan the light doesn't move.

Where can I get parts?

Who can I call? What can I do?

Oddly, the scanner is mission-critical for us. It's hard to validate new scanners for regulatory compliance. We are trying to stockpile, but repair would be even better!

Here is the contact page for AGFA, they should be able to answer all your questions concering repair of this scanner.

http://www.agfa.com/en/sp/forms/contactus.jsp

I have repaired a few flatbed scaners and have had the same problem. The fix for mine was a defective belt for a couple and on another it was a broken plastic post that held the gear which moved the light. I used epoxy on the post and it held up great.

I found the problem areas by opening up the top of the flatbed glass area, a few screws needed to be taken out of the bottom and the top came right off. Then look around the area of the scanning element (light) and see if you can determain what the actual problem really is (broken belt or gear, broken post, ect.) If it needs a belt they can be found at many electronics parts outlets. take the broken one in to be measured. That's if this is even a belt driven mechinism, sorry I am not familiar with this specific scanner. It is not a very common one.

If I can help further let me know.

Try this ;

Re-seat the batch of documents gently into the document feeder Confirm the automatic document feeder is closed
Connect the interface cable correctly
When the scanner is the last or only device on the SCSI bus, set the terminator switch to ON; otherwise set it to off

Hope that helps if not have the scanner replace.....

My MFC-8500 has worked flawlessly (7-8 years) till present. Now the copy/scanner light now does not come on across the full width of the scanning face. So when copying (or scanning) a dark band about 1.5"...


Yes sir. But it is definitely critical. You can even break your device. However, if you can simply unlock your unit with ease then you are good to go. But one more thing is that, the spare part you are looking for is actually hard to find among resellers or vendors. And when you find one, is is usually priced half the price of the printer. Try your luck.

Paper james during scan,clicking sound in upper


Clicking sound is not a healthy sound, check if any gear wheel is damaged. Is the tray moving up properly? There are a few sensitive parts like the clutch, gears etc. If you cant fix it please call a trained technician, so that damage is minimal.

Scanner bulb doesn't turn on during a scan


You can try to get and replace the scanner light. If it was the light, the new one will work. If it was some other electonic component that shut off the light, then the light won't work. Depends on the cost of a new light compared to getting the unit serviced by a tech. Or the cost of a new Multifunction unit. Do some research before you make the decision.

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.

The light on the lid, for scanning negatives won't move


You will most likely find that the FAU cable that connects the lift up lid part to the lower part of the scanner has at least one fractured wire within it. There are eight quite fine wires and the constant opening and closing of the lid has caused this to occur. Unless you have some micro-surgery skills and a small soldering iron it's off to the scanner shop, I'm afraid.

Are you talking about the switch to lock the carriage during transport? If so, this should not be on during usage.

Makes grinding noises, refuses to scan; WinXP


take a look on the underside of the scanner. there may be a switch that goes from lock to unlock. try to move it to lock and back into unlock. this lock is usually used to lock the bar from moving during shipping. if this got moved back to lock or bumped while you had it turned over, the scanner will not allow the bar to move.. try this first.
