Question about Canon CanoScan FB620U Flatbed Scanner
I havent touched my scanner in a couple of years (or more actually). I went so far as to order a new AC adapter from Canon to plug it back in. When I did, it didn't whir as usual, and the scanning unit inside the scanner (I can see through the glass flatbed) didn't even move. It powered on and everything...this is really frustrating. I don't want to buy a new scanner, and am wondering if I can just unscrew this thing and muddle around. It is in perfect cosmetic condition, just not sure why it won't "scan" or anything.
These have quite a flimsy rubber drive belt which can stick and go hard. If you can get to it you might be able to soften it up with a soak over night in olive oil. Finding a replacement might be difficult..

Do you have enough disk space? Check if your C; drive has enough space. Normally C: is used as 'scratch area'. Try scanning intoa different location.
