    thank you for your comment i will try your suggestion. the other thought that i have is that there is something wrong with the usb cord that connects my mac computer with the scanner. when i attach the usb i also do not get a reading that the scanner is attached. there is nothing wrong with my mac as i use external hardrives and other usb attachments and they all register on the mac - so i am also thinking i may try to buy a new cord and see if that helps

I have many years repairing Canon scanners and here is my suggestion to you.

If you are positive the lock switch is unlocked then I think what happened is the scanner inside the scanner is off its track an can not move. I would remove the glass on the top of your flat bed scanner to gain access to the scanner lens then I would try and move the scanner lens manually with the power off to the scanner. If it does move freely then I would think you have a bad scanner lens. If it doesnt move freely try and reposition the lens back on to its track. They some times jump off there track from shipping.

I hope this helps you out.

Trying to install an astra 600 car alarm into a 04 dodge stratus


I called dodge local service dealer and ask the chief mech. He said the lock unlock switch had two resistors, Lock was 7200 ohms and the unlock had a 620 ohm both going to the PCU (computer) with an reduced 12 voltage supply to the CPU the CPU looks at the amount of reduced and will energize the lock or unlock Solenoid. added the resisters to each solenoid lock 7200 ohm and unlock 620 ohm on the ASTRA 600 alarm output to the CPU. works OK.
Thanks for your Interest in my problem.
