My scanner just quit working. There isn't even a green/orange power light. I have rehooked all the connections and still no power light. Does this mean that my scanner has gone bae or does it mean my power cord has gone bad, or is it something else?
If there isn't any light..........it means that the power adapter has bit the dust or the lite has burned out. Does the scanner light come on? There is probably a second hand shop somewhere around that has a used replacement real cheap.... 12 volt DC, 1.25 amp w/ the center being +. Or you can take it to a shop and have them check it out to see if it is putting out voltage... it will read 50% more than 12 vdc if it is still good.

Look for the fiber strip along the bottom of the scanner inside the glass. Clean it and the mirror-like thing on the carriage above it. These things work together to encode and decode. Dirt drives them nuts.
Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.

I had that problem. Based on some info about the Lexmark X85 printer, I began looking for the fiber optic strip. It lies at the bottom and stretches about halfway. It's about two inches wide and hard to see because it is virtually part of the case. I cleaned it several times. Getting the case off was a pain. That didn't quite work but then, just about the time I had given up, I took the scanner off my recycle pile and gave it one more shot. This time, I cleaned the fiber optic strip and then took the carriage apart and found the glass mirror-like thing that glides along the strip. Cleaning that did the trick. It is working again.
