Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Flatbed Scanner
I can't get the scanner to be "on". I used it a couple of days ago and it worked fine ... has been perfect for the 2.5 years I've had it. Everything is plugged in and I just finished the driver download sequence. I have in on an iMac for the last year. Could it have "died" on me?
I had a "Doh!" moment the day after posting my problem. As I was packing up the scanner to put it in the attic, I suddenly noticed the on/off switch on the side. I'd never noticed it before. Connecting everything and flicking it to ON made the lights come on and my scanner worked perfectly. I'd recommend switching off at the mains after every use, however, as there is something a bit dodgy about the power supplies.

I had the same problem a year ago or so. The solution was to replace the power cord. I have the problem again even though I haven't used the scanner much in the meantime. I think there's a power trickle effect going on and I should have unplugged the cord from the outlet when not in use.
