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.

Re: not moving < Agfa Duoscan T1200 Flatbed
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.....

Agfa discontinued its consumer scanner product line (SnapScan, DuoScan,
Arcus), as well as its digital camera product line (ePhoto, StudioCam)
in September 2001. Therefore, we are no longer able to provide any
support. Agfa does not keep digital cameras or scanners, nor spare parts
for these products, in its stock. A number of companies (such as
VueScan) offer drivers that should allow older scanners to work with
recent operating systems.
I have a Agfa
DuoScan F40 Flatbed Scanner. It appears that the scanning function is not
working. Light is not turn on.Blank white paper as a result. I wonder
if we could somehow mod the scanner lamp since it is nearly impossible
for us to buy the scanner lamp nowdays,even Agfa support say so. The
function of this lamp is similiar to a torchlight.It will brighten the
document that we want to scan during the scanning proces.What if somehow
we manage to use other device other than the lamp it self like
superbright LED(20 watts) or another lamp scanner from dead scanner
macine.I think it will work.Anyone care to comment....
The fuse for Duoscan T1200 is "T2A 250V" a 2 Ampere 250 Volts. The letter "T" means the fuse is "Slow Action". European size ? 5 mm. x 20 mm. length. The cilinder is "Ceramic" in white color, not in transparent glass like comun ones.
I'm assuming this scanner interface is a SCSI connection. First thing you may want to look at is the SCSI ID number switch at the very back end of the scanner. Before changing the SCSI ID switch make sure your scanner is powered down. Repeat steps above when trying different SCSI ID numbers to see which one works with your computer. If you have other SCSI devices connected make sure they are not sharing the same SCSI ID # which will cause a conflict.
