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.....

I'm surching installation software for agfa duoscan


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.

The solution is to buy a new scanner.

Good luck

Where can I buy spare parts? i need a new lamp.


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....

Trouble with an older scanner


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.
