I have a DocuMate 152 that is no longer recognized by the computer.
Nothing changed on the computer, but I tried re-installing the drivers anyway, but it didn't make a difference.
The status light is clear (not red or green, not lit up at all) and it is displaying an '8'. I looked up the error code and it said that the paper input tray is not connected properly. Unattached and reatached the input tray, but no change. Cleaned the scanner thourougly but, again, no change.
I've tried connecting it to different USB ports and to different computers and none of them recognize that anything is even connected.
Is this scanner just dead?
Thank you for using the Support Forum. Sounds like you have done almost everything. One last thing to check is the power cord, plug it directly into an outlet, no power strip or surge protector just to eliminate those items as an issue. If you get the same results with it plugged into a dedicated outlet you will need to contact support for further assistance.
I have the exact same issue, same sypmtoms, tried recommended solution.
In addition with power turned on the scanner lamp does not come on as it used to.
Is the a electronic board issue, a need for a reset or resolved by replacing the lamp unit.
If the latter, where can I purchase the bulb?
