Scanner shows red background!

I've just had everything disconnected to add network & new desk!Set everything up again, & Astra 2500 scans everything as if its on red paper. Everthing was perfect before, has anyone got any ideas? I'll be seeing red in more ways than one soon!Why cant I leave well alone!!! Thanks, Al.

Thanks,Yoda Knight. They seem plugged in OK, am now installing it in to my backup PC, to see if its any different on there.May take a while.

Worse now! Makes wierd whining noises, & "crunch" sounds, as if its jammed up inside. Have checked its not locked.I think perhaps its kill or cure screwdrivertime!

The wierd sounds were caused by the lock, even though off, catching inside. It scans much slower than usual, the whole background is red, even where there was nothing to scan. Is this a way that it tells me to buy a new one? Strange that it worked perfect before, though!

Have you got a spare lead ?, maybe you have bent a pin or similar.

Its got its own "built in" USB lead

I think I may have solved the problem!I just found that I connected via my speaker transformer, 15v-the scanners transformer is 12v!I imagine this didnt do it any good!
