Lamp turns off during warm up cycle!

Scanner works fine in normal mode but when in transparency mode the lamp turns of after about 7% through tha warm up cycle and then stops. I have reinstalled everything and even changed my computer but it is still the same. It worked previously and this problem just appeared out of thin air one day. Any fix out there?

The lamp is getting too hot. Turn off your scanner when not in use.

SOURCE: My Canon 8400F worked yesterday and today it is

First, make certain that the flatbed scanner lid is securely shut.
Second, unplug the power and USB cables from the rear of the scanner.
Third, deposit the Canon 8400F scanner in the nearest garbage receptacle where it belongs.
Hope this helps.

Looks like things have got a bit mixed up with the canon software. Try this:-

1) Un-install the camera.
2) Un-install the scanner.
3) Re-start the PC.
4) Re-install the scanner.

Lamp shuts down during warm up cycle!


My belief is that it would be inside the scanner itself. In transparency mode the lamp may require more power and shutting off is a safety device if something is failing. Sadly, repairing a scanner costs almost as much as buying a new one.

I have a Xerox 7356 Scanner which continually says: Not Ready on the display. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this problem or where to go on-line to research troubleshooting?


it is likely the lamp.
Easy fix.
Buy a new lamp at a good lamp supply store. Type F32T8 SPX41
Make sure the back plate is white and re-normalize the cameras.

If you get the "NOT READY" message only after you insert an original
then the problem is likely the motion sensor.

Stops mid-cycle


Hi SaviorSound,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbr.

Your question is: You have a MDB7100AWB that has been working fine for the last 7 years. Now all of the sudden it will not complete a wash cycle in any mode (including auto clean). It consistantly stops at 85 on normal wash & at 65 on light wash and then clicks/buzzes about every 3 seconds, like it wants to continue - but never does. Any clues as to what to try? Is 7 years all I can expect to get?

Perhaps. Your d/w is stoping at the point where it should be turning on the 'heat dry' phase. This can be expensive. At this point I would be compairing the cost effectivness of repair verses replacement. Wish I had better news for you.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,

Epson 3490 does not find the slide I put in the correctly positioned provided frame


Please do the following to scan slides or negatives in manual mode of the Epson TWAIN:
For scanning transparencies in HOME mode - for EPSON SCAN models, not Epson Twain/Manual mode models.
1) In the program you are working from, begin the scanning process. If working in FULL AUTO MODE as the scan begins click PAUSE or CANCEL, then change "Full Auto Mode" to "Home Mode".
2) You will now see all Epson Scan settings displayed. If the scanner has not previewed automatically, click the large preview button to get a visual of what is on the scanner.
3) Ensure the settings on the Epson Scan are correct for what you wish to scan. For example, the DOCUMENT TYPE for transparencies must be either "Color negative film", "B&W Negative Film" or "Positive film"*.
* FILM here indicates that the item being scanned is transparent to light; this setting is also used for slide scanning. Positive indicates that the image is in true colors (ie the grass is green and sky is blue), whereas negative indicates reversed colors, as produced in some photo finishing processes.)
If the DOCUMENT SOURCE is set for a flatbed related option, ie PHOTO, the scanner is looking for reflective items and will not activate the backlight in the transparency unit. If the DOCUMENT TYPES for "FILM" are greyed out or cannot be selected, close the Epson Scan, reseat the power/communication cable connecting the base of the scanner to the transparency unit, then reopen Epson Scan and try again.
NOTE for PROFESSIONAL MODE users: DOCUMENT TYPE should read TRANSPARENCY for film scans.
4) Ensure the other scanner settings are correct for the type of scan you are doing. For example:
IMAGE TYPE should be color photo for all positive or negative color transparencies, or BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO for monochrome transparencies.
DESTINATION is unimportant, however you should select a RESOLUTION appropriate to what you plan to do with the scans. (There are no hard and fast rules for DPI. As a general guideline, if you are saving scans at original size, a resolution ranging from 400-600 DPI should capture enough information to faithfully record the image. If the slide or negative will be enlarged, you will need to increase this DPI accordingly. We have no means to calculate what your exact needs will be in this situation; you will need to experiment and view the output to gauge the appropriate input DPI from the scanner.)
PREVIEW. If your scanner is doing a THUMBNAIL PREVIEW, the slides will automatically preview and appear in boxes on the left side. Here, you can select or deselect the slides you wish to scan.
If you recieve a message that the scanner could not find the film, or you see in the preview that part of the scan is cut off, click the down arrow next to the large PREVIEW button and click NORMAL, then PREVIEW again. In NORMAL PREVIEW mode, the scanner will capture all information on the flatbed; you will then have to manually marquee or crop the slides you wish to scan. Use the left mouse button (click, hold, drag) to lasso one slide inside a box made of dotted lines, then click scan. Only the selected area will scan. Repeat this process for as many slides or filmstrips are on the bed.
5) Click CLOSE once scanning is complete. The images will now transfer to the application in use.

How to change lamp in AGFA Arcus 2 flatbed scanner?


http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/scanner/agfa/arcus.htm#a2lamp

  • Turn off the scanner power switch and disconnect the power plug. Wait at least 15 minutes to allow the unit to cool down.
  • Unscrew the two screws at the back of the base.
  • Pull the SCSI board out enough to disconnect the ribbon cable that threads through the opening in the base (on the right).
  • Remove the two screws from the upper portion of the back of the base.
  • Remove the Transparency Option (TPO) from the base.
  • Remove the two screws from the top back of the base. These screws will be visible when the Transparency option is removed.
  • Remove the two screws from the top front of the base and lift the plastic housing off the scanner.
  • Move the carriage optical assembly backward until you can reach the lamp.
  • Remove the two screws from the top of the optical assembly that covers the bulb and remove the black cover.
  • Lift the lamp from the socket, working one end, then the other.
  • Replace the lamp with a replacement lamp. One replacement lamp is provided with the scanner and others are available through Agfa Parts Order.
  • Return the lamp cover the original position and replace the two screws.
  • Replace the plastic housing and replace the four screws holding the housing.
  • Thread the ribbon cable of the Transparency Option through the base and plug back into the SCSI board.
  • Return the board to the base and tighten the two screws. This insures a slack cable that won't be punctured when screws are put in to attach the transparency module to the base unit.
  • Replace the two screws in the back of the base to secure the Transparency Option to the base.

    Scanner wont scan transparencies properly


    I have the same problem with my 4990. This began when I moved to a new computer running Vista. I've updated all drivers to the latest version including Epson Scan for Vista but the only thing the 4990 "sees" is reflective documents. Negatives are not recognized at all. I know this is probably a different problem from what you are having but the effect is the same.
