I don't know specifically what the solution is, but I just downloaded the user manual which has been missing and info from it might help.

Disconnect the cable between the scanned lid and the bed. Lift off the lid. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screes that are located where the lid's hinges were. Carefully lift off the top portion of the bed starting at the back. As you approach the front, push it towards the control panel to remove. The front pulley will have either one or both of the plastic flanges will be broken (hopefully just one. In my case, I just used duct tape to hold the pulley down tightly. Power it up to ensure that it's fixed before puttingthe top part of the base back on. If it's not connected to your computer, you should get a flashing green light, or solid green if it's talking to your computer. Put the top part of the bed back on, screw it down and re-attatch the lid.

Epson 3170 scanner - have been scanning fine for over 2 years now suddenly says 'unable to write to file' ?! Actually seems to scan OK in preview just will not write file....... any ideas ? Scott


Check to see where it is writing to (which directory) and make sure the directory exists and you do not have duplicate filenames. Check the free space on the drive you are writing to. Run an error check on the drive. If it is a shared folder/directory then check your permissions.

Error message on attempt to scan: "Instruction at "0x673328c8" referenced memory at "0x21900668". The memory could not be "read"." need fix.


I must blush to say that I reviewed the error messages more closely and discovered that the solution was with an application, not the scanner. Thanks tremendously for your prompt attention.

No light when scanner turns on; can bulb be replaced? where to buy?


Unfortunately the bulb on the scanner is not available on retail stores. Epson does not allow end users to take the scanner apart because they might not be able to put the scanner back in together because of the scanner's engineering design.
