Question about Epson Perfection V500 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

My Epson Perfection V500 Photo won't scan any negatives. It scans them as photo's. I've removed the document mat, unlocked the lock, connected the cover cable and adjusted the software settings. I can't use the holder, since the negatives have a different format ( 6x 9 cm ). I've tried different computers and restarting both scanner and computer.

I don't know of any regular printer that scans negatives. Check your printer manual to see if it's designed to print negatives. You can get devices that will do that, but I'm not certain any regular printer will. If you don't have a manual you can look up your model online to find out more.

Inaddtion to the above comments, ensure the cable coming from the lid is also plugged in at the back of the scanner, otherwise it won't pass light through the negatives.

When you are sure that the DC cable has no breakages and makes contact with the main switch and yet nothing happens when you connect to the unit. This could only mean that the power unit inside the scanner or part of its components is burnt. If you can get the unit over to an expert to diagnose exactly which of the components if the power unit is spoilt and a replacement part can be ordered.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Hi, and thanks for your help. sad little noises on start up


Hello b3toed - sorry you're having problems; let's see what can be done.
First, there is a transportation lock on the scanner. (If you have a manual, it will tell you more about this.) Make sure it is unlocked.
Second, test the connection between the scanner and your computer -- make sure it's snug (well connected).
Third, if you were scanning a transparency just before this happened, make sure you've removed the reflective document mat.

After checking these things, turn it off - pause - then turn it back on. Best wishes for good results! -- ambssdor --

Epson v500 not able to scan negatives! When I open uop the software, they don't even give me the option to scan negatives, just photos!


You probably need to reset (not reload) the scanner software. Start the Epson scan software. Select professional mode from the pull down menu (it lets you choose between auto, home and professional.) On the next screen select at the very bottom select configuration. The next screen should have 4 tabs, select other. The at the bottom (I think) select restore to factory defaults. This will reset your software, now you can use auto mode if you want it to make all your selections or home if you want some control or professional if you want to control everything. Don't forget to use your film holder that came with the unit and remove the white cover that is locked underneath the lid that covers the film illumination bulb.

EPSON Perfection 4490 - Ireflective media scans, film doesn't


There are two lamps with this model. One in the base for reflective and one in the lid for negatives and slides. If the base one is going out then it will be trying to use the one in the lid. You must remove the white document mat from underneath the lid to expose this lamp so it can scan your negatives.

Using epson v500 and can't get it to change the document size under image type in professional mode according to manual. scanning old B&W negatives 2 x 2 in size and it cuts off the image most of the time...


I had the same problem and have found my answer. I don't know if it's the technically correct one but it works.
When you open the scan page and it shows you the mode, setting, original document type, destination, adjustments, and then the preview and scan buttons. Under the Preview button you will see a box check marked for thumbnail. Remove the check and then do a preview scan. You should end up with a complete scan showing the slide (if you only scanned one), the open side and the surrounding blackened area too. Click on the picture in the preview and then draw an outline around the part of the picture that you want to use. Do this just like it you were going to do cropping of the photo. Once you have the box around the part you want click on zoom. Your next preview will be the picture that you want. I haven't figured out how to remove the remaining blackened area with out going into a photo edit program but it must be able to be done. Then you can scan to where ever you save them to and have the whole slide. I hope that this gets you at least some what further along.
