Question about Visioneer 9650 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanner parts came loose

I bought a great scanner off a seller on ebay who only said that the physical condition looked good but knew nothing else about it. Sold "As Is". When I got it I saw the only problem was that the geared plastic piece that the scan head runs along had come loose from wherever it had been hooked with a spring. Now I'm in search of a manual or picture that shows me how the thing gets hooked back up.

    The scanner is a Visioneer 9650. I got the geared portion fixed but now it looks like the ribbon cable may have become partially detached. Researching how to reattach the ribbon cable without messing it up.

How much should I pay for a second hand 3230 Elna bought in 2012? It is in very good condition.

This really isn't an appraisal service. You can search online (eBay, Etsy, etc.) sites that have recently sold similar machines. Price also depends on its physical and working condition, the accessories that are included, where it is located, etc. In essence, an item's value is only worth what a seller is willing to pay.

Code p1684

Code 1684 is for the computer loosing battery voltage or voltage dropping below 11 volts. So that code won't help much with a no start condition.
I would check for spark and fuel pressure then proceed.

I need a power cord for the HP 5590 scanner

Hello alex951,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I found a great listing for this power supply you require, on eBay!
Of course it is always wise to use "Top Rated" sellers there.

Here you go!

Happy scanning!

My CanoScan 8400F stopped working. A local computer shop advised that the power adapter was shot. Rather than spend $60+ with Canon, I bought an after-market through EBAY. When it was delivered I...

I'd try contacting the seller FIRST and letting him know the product does not work for the models he advertised and you'd like to return the item for a refund. If that doesn't work, THEN file a claim with your credit card company or Paypal (credit card is preferable if you paid by that rather than paypal funds) and say the item was misrepresented.
Rather than splicing anything and damaging anything, I'd do that first. Then find a seller with high ratings for the same product. Ebay is the way to go rather than paying ridiculous factory prices.See if you can find the original manufacturer's part # (possibly off your broken power adapter), rather than just the scanner model #, and search Ebay for it, but click the "Search within description" box, as many bay sellers only include the actual part # in the auction description, rather than just the title.

The lubricant has become sticky and is acting more like adhesive than lubricant. This is the most common cause of malfunction in the LS-2000 and LS-30 scanners. It's a quite curable condition.

Nikon LS-2000 and LS-30 film scanner service and repair is available. Check seller pjferrante2 on eBay. Scanner performance backed for 12 months. Very reasonable price.

Does the Uniden BC 148XLT have a memory battery in it? When I unplug the scanner from the wall outlet , it looses all the frequencies. Also if you know what size it takes, would be...

Sorry, but maintaining memory in your BC248CLT is not as simple as replacing a battery. Your scanner has a capacitor-based backup system, and the capacitor has apparently failed with age. Unless you're skilled at electronics repair, or you have a buddy who is, repair of this classic (circa 1999) scanner will set you back about $100. That makes repair impractical, so you might want to keep your current scanner powered up, and start looking for a replacement. Good deals on used scanners can always be found on eBay, but be certain that you know what you're buying, what condition it's in, and what it's worth.

I just bought the unit used off ebay - wont scan

I would contact the seller for that information. Also check the ebay listing to see if the seller offers a DOA( Dead on Arrival) return. It would probably cost you more to repair it than to just buy a new one. The seller should be responsible for providing that information to you or to accept the return on the item.
