    Purchased used-was told it was fully functional. The scanner does not turn on-no indicator lights, no noises, computer doesn't detect it as a new device.

    I didn't turn my ScanMaker 9800XL on for a while (probably about a year) as I don't use it too often anymore. But, when I turn it on, the yellow and green lights (the power and ready indicators) flash on and off. There is a green light inside and also flashes on and off. When I turn it on, it's like the scanner is trying to start, but it can't. It's not a burnt out bulb, because the scanner light does come on for about 4 seconds, but the unit won't power up. I've tried unplugging it, waiting, and then re-plugging it in, but that doesn't work. Anyone else have this problem?

    I use Windows XP and I always use Adobe Photoshop and the import function to get my scans. Last I time I used (over a year ago), it worked just fine. Adobe recognized the scanner without any problems. It just doesn't seem to fully power up.

    Thanks in advance for your time and experience with this.

It's not the same ScanWizard Pro software that used to work on my PowerPC G5 running OSX 10.5 Leopard, but at least it enables me to use my ScanMaker 9800XL with my late 2011 17" MacBookPro and OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. Get it, it works!

Xrays


You can't scan xrays unless you have a scanner capable of scanning film, which requires a film attachment.

Try doing a fresh reinstall of the software for the scanner and then adjust the color ratios durring the install. I have found that every one to two years it is good to go through and refresh all my drivers for scanners printers ect.

Microtek is famous for making a good product that will last you a good while if it is maintained and taken care of. Yet their lack of support for said products is lacking. Try to uninstall and reinstall all the software for the scanner. Make sure before you uninstall that you still have the install disc. If not then you can find the drivers on the Microtek site.
