Epson V100 photo on/off ?

Hopefully just a quickie.....

Still exploring a brand new scanner and so far so good.
However the only way to switch it off appears to be to chop the power supply at the mains switch.

Anyone know differently?

I .....think...... I see what you mean???

In plain English

To switch on >
"plug it in"
To switch off >
"pull the plug"

Wow, that's what I do! Amazing technology for 2006

It appears the scanner has an AC adapter. See:

to download the manual if you, by any chance, don't have one.

Yes I have a CD like the scanner fresh out of its package yesterday. the links you gave all duplicate gen on the CD.

Am now convinced that there is no on/off switch as such. The low voltage PS obviously can be switched at the wall.

Perhaps this is Epson's way of saving the planet, by ensuring that all but the most insensitive will see that they are wasting watts by leaving it on all through a session.

Epson did include a USB lead but not it seems an On/Off switch at the scanner itself.

Epson's "Live helpline" has confirmed there is no on/off switch on this unit.

As it's an adapter the electricity consumption will be very low.

I leave my Epson R300 printer on all the time.

So do I with an external HD supply. An Epson 870 printer or 5800 depending which is attached, but each has its own on/off switch at the appliance.

My point is that this scanner must either be off at the wall or accept various lights on all the time - warm and ready to go!
