Umax Astra 4450 Flatbed...Scanner link failure

My Astra 4450 Flatbed has been working for 5 years.
It has suddenly stopped working. A message comes up saying .."Scanner link failure. Scanner Test suggests, 1) the power is not on...(but the small green "power on" light up front is ON suggesting that power is going thru).
2) Your scanner is not on before your system starts. (It has NEVER been
essential to power on the scanner before the system starts. I have only
powered it on when necessary to use the scanner whilst my PC is on.)
3) Error message. :"Scanner access failure".....but I have tried another
voltage converter which works well on another scanner. I have also tried
the other scanner's USB and identical leads to my Astra 4450...but to no avail. I notice that the scanners lid light does not come on. Could this be the only problem?? Where can I purchase a new one??

Driver for windows7


Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D

Scanner link failure


This scanner requires a "Parallel or Centronics" cable and if you have a newer computer, you may only have USB connections. A "USB to CENTRONICS" cable may do the trick, but I'm not sure. Check on the web for one.
