I am using Win ME and suddenly the scanner icon in my task bar has a red dot and reads "scanner not found" although I can scan items and they automatically transfer to the printer and print ok. Can anyone offer a solution please.Meshuga.
Try a reinstall of the scanner twain software.
If it a usb scanner,try removeing other things usb first,cameras,printers remove the drivers and put scanner in first.Then reinstall the rest.Regards.
Thanks to Lu-tze and A NICKNAME. Have tried your suggestions but no success. Will have to look into it further when time permits. Regards, Meshuga.
Go to the scanners website & try looking for an updated driver or even reinstall the driver you have. I had a similar problem & I needed a drver update (Although I didn't get a red dot)
Not an ideal solution but try System Restore to go back to a time when all ok.
To rawprawn and Steinman,many thanks, all the replies seem to point to Drivers. Will download latest. Sorry about the delay in replying,problems at home. Regards, Meshuga.
