Does it make the noise even when disconnected from the computer? Try to unplug it from the computer but leave the power connected (if it is a model with separate power and data connection) and see if it still makes the noise.

If it does then it is a hardware problem and it will need repairs. If it doesn't then its something in your software attempting to talk to the scanner incorrectly. You can try reinstalling the software for the scanner to ultimately test.

I had the same problem and fixed mine without re installation. Even though the error does not indicate it very well, the application could not write to the destination. The EPSON Scan application has a destination in two places. One under configuration, in my case, correct. However, a more buried location, next to the Scan button, press the arrow to edit more settings. There, you will find another destination, in my case, incorrect ( a folder that did not exist). Change the setting to a folder that does exist, it should work. Check out my fix here, detailed with pictures. Thank you. Hope this helps someone.

I posted this for another user but i'll post it here too,

I remember looking for hours for a driver for my Epson 1200 scanner back when I upgraded by dad to Vista 64 Bit, eventually I found one. Just today I upgraded him to Windows 7 64 bit and remembered I couldn't get it to work, luckily I was able to dig up the driver I used for Vista 64. Worked great in Windows 7.

I can't remember where I found it so I can't credit the person who made the driver unfortunately, however i've uploaded it to Rapidshare for you to download. Here is the link:

Just open up the zip file and run the setup. :)

Hope this helps, Merry Christmas!

My suggested solution was to become an Elite Expert and to consult myself.

1. Drive unloaded, sometimes drive installed on the scanner can not find, can allow the scanner to find the driver, first drive optical disc into the optical drive for a moment, and then plug in the data cable power line, and then the scanner power supply, according to the instructions can be operated.

2. The scanner first installs the driver, then connects the usb wire. The connection will not be checked until the power switch indicator is on, or the computer will not recognize the hardware.

Found online epson manual, found that lock tab on the back of the scanner had been bumped across to "lock" position.

This noise is caused by the transport lock. Power the scanner off. Lock and unlock the transport lock a few times and then leave it in the unlocked position again and power on.

My guess is that the scanning mechanism is out of adjustment and butting against the stop repeatedly until it succeeds in breaking.
