Scanner has work great for years, now all of a sudden it won't, The power on indicator flashes 8 times then pauses, flashes again 8 times.
I am suspecting that the lamp is bad. Anyone have any clues before I trash it and have to buy a new one.

Re: Power On indicator Flashing, Scanner won't scan
It could be anything, when there's a hardware malfunction, the scanner just will not allow any action. As it is also an old scanner, any documentation of LED error codes will be long gone, too.
It's a shame when well built peripherals die.

Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TV will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone. Good Luck Ed Pinero
The flashing green light has the following meaning:
• Blinking green: indicates the scanner is waking up from power saving and preparing to scan. • Steady green: indicates the scanner is ready to scan.
How to Adjust the Power Save Settings for the DocuMate 252 1. Right-click on the One Touch icon and choose Show Hardware from the pop-up menu. You can also click the scanner icon at the top of the One Touch Button Panel. If the Hardware View of the panel is open you can also right- click on the DM252 icon. The Hardware Properties dialog box opens and shows information about your Xerox DocuMate 252 scanner. 2. Click the Properties button. Your scanner has a built-in power saving feature that is set to power down after 15 minutes of idle time. You can change the time before the scanner powers down, from 1 minute to a maximum of 3 hours. 3. Click the arrows for the Lamp timeout setting and choose a time setting. To return the scanner to its factory settings, click Reset Device. 4. Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog box.
Let me know if this solves the problem and thank you, Binary Bob
I was surprised by the same problem this morning. First time I've had a problem with in years. Checked the lock... it was already unlocked. I solved the problem by unhooking the USB cable from the hub, restarting my Mac (seems to be the key), replugging the cable and restarting the scanner. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you!
Please try the following to resolve your issue:
1. Unplug the USB cable and the AC adapter from the back of the scanner. 2. Toggle the Transportation lock (located on the bottom of the scanner) back and forth 5 times, ensuring that the lock is all the way in the unlock position. 3. Reconnect the USB cable and the AC adapter cable, and then try to scan.
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!
