The UMAX web site appears to have a fairly good knowledge base, especially when it comes to troubleshooting blinking lights. http://umax.com/support/knowledge/index.jsp Doing a search for lights under Support info result a few articles, including this one: http://umax.com/support/knowledge/search.jsp?docs=SC00322

UMAX PowerLook 2100xl scanner termination


Only one termination should be powered in a SCSI chain. Generally, it should be the last device. It's been a long time since I've worked with SCSI, but I recall that scanners may be picky about where in a chain of multiple devices they are located; electrical noise on the SCSI data lines causes problems with the scanner electronics. I don't recall whether best results are found from locating it as the first device in line from the computer or the last device.

How do I connect my Umax Powerlook III to my max 10.6.8 os x?


This scanner is Fast SCSI . It was made in 2001. You will need a card in your Mac for a SCSI interface. The cost of the card and scsi cable, if your Mac will accept one, will probably exceed the cost of a newer, high performance scanner. Time to move on? (Umax were not the greatest scanners even when they were made. Umax was a cheaper brand with mediocre software. So how will you get the image into the Mac once you have a connection? Power PC (OS 9) Mac software will not run on OS X.)

there are some Firewire to SCSI and USB to SCSI adapters that should work- check www.hamrick.com. Ed Hamrick has written Vuescan scanning software that will work with the 2100XL, windows 7 and many of these adpters

Trying to connect Umax PL 2100XL (SCSI) to G4 - scanner not found


I just told someone else this solution...KILL the SCSI junk...I had nothing but trouble with it with my Mac....I got a Ratoc Firewire to UltraSCSI Converter...to solve the regular SCSI to ultra SCSI problem...I also bought an adapter....It works great...no need for a SCSI card...or a driver...you just plug directly into your firewire port! If anyone can help me with my TA adapter startup problem...I'll be thrilled! Carole

Won't complete initialization/calibration


Hi...I  have a PowerLook III, and that sounds like the super frustrating problem I used to have...first of all, don't worry about it not being used for awhile...I didn't use mine for 10 years and now it's great...except my Trans adapter problem. Anyway...I am running Mac OSX.4.11...I got a Ratoc SCSI to Firewire adapter from the Lasersoft people..they make the Silverfast scanninng software...and my scanner works great..no more creepy SCSI bus and driver and card issues...I highly recommed one...I hope this helps!
