HT3669 My Epson Perfection 1200 scanner functions as a flatbed scanner but when I try to scan transparencies the control panels change in  Image Capture but the scanner bar will not complete the overview scan  & cannot travel beyond the first 2/3 centimet

Epson Perfection 1200 scanner continues to function as a flatbed scanner but when I try to scan transparencies/film negs the control panels change in  Image Capture but the scanner bar will not complete the overview scan  & cannot travel beyond the first 2/3 centimeters. All the communications seem to recognise the scanner and the mode for the intended scan but the necessary overview scan is not completed, nothing comes up on the Image Capture scan window. If I unplug the film adaptor I can get a document scan. When I plug in the adaptor again the Image Capture details change which allows me to select the type of scan required but when the scanner attempts an overview scan it is unable to complete it.
I have had the scanner from new (12 Years) and have previously scanned slides and film with the adaptor but maybe this was before I upgraded my computer (imac 27").
Do I have to buy a new scanner?  It seems so close to working correctly. 
I have downloaded the Epson recommended driver (5.4) and have Epson Perfection 1200 6.6 Universal showing in the Applications List.
Any thoughts or observations would be much appreciated before I go out and spend money an new hardware.
Thanks

I have same issue - have you solved this yet?

    I tried hard reset on my iPhone. I tried restarting laptop and iPhone. I tried a different laptop. I tried removing driver and reinstalling from Device Manager but did not find a driver other than "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" under "Universal Serial Bus controllers" which I heard shouldn't be uninstalled.
    Anything I haven't tried?
    HELP!

    A bit confused by your statement

    Are you seeing your music listed in the iPod screen, or in Win explorer as in your earlier post?
    I can see all the songs in my Edrive>al's Ipod> Ipod Control> Music folder.
    A corrupted iPod database, will report zero music used, and have your music size reported as others, so you wont see the music in the iPod screen. Sorry, I thought there was some hope for you with iPodAccess, in recovery of the corrupted iPod database with your ratings.
    You can try to borrow and  use the Mac Disk Utility ->First Aid ->Repair.
    Of course, if your iPod Hardisk is in a bad state, from the Disk Diagnostic report, then all my suggestion are futile.

  • I've recently started to use Numbers but when I try to sync to iCloud it asks me to create a new iCloud account. Problem is I already have one and that's the one I want to use. Looks like I have the same situation on my iphone. Any guidance? Thanks.

    Looks like I have the same situation on my iphone.
    The only option I'm being given is to create an lCloud account.
    Any guidance? Thanks.

    The last thing you want is a second iCloud account. Try logging out and back in in System Preferences. If that doesn't work, I'd get AppleCare on the line.

  • Just got an Ipad and am working on setting it up.  the one issue I am having with it is my screen will not rotate no matter what I do to the settings, I can't figure out if the settings are wrong or if there really is something wrong with my Ipad.

    Double click the home button (square)  and all the things you did are there.keep sliding the bar that will come up on the bottom to the left till it cant go anymore there should be a icon looking like this.press that and it should work
    Good luck hope it works.

  • I'm trying to delete multiple pix in iPhoto that i stupidly made duplicates of without knowing, I've tried going into the applications folder and using image capture but i think I've missed a step , can anyone send the correct info / steps pls thanks

    again image capture is not involved with deleting photos from iPhoto in any way ever
    the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager is very good for finding duplicates as is Duplicate Annihilator
    And I have no idea who told you this - or what it means - but re-read both of my opening statements
    I was told I could delete multpiles thru image capture by transferring my iPhoto library etc

  • I got my code but when i try downloading it it says retry as net connection is slow, but i am on a high spee broadband and all the other sites are opening simultaneously then why this problem?

    I got my code but when i try downloading it it says retry as net connection is slow, but i am on a high speed broadband and all the other sites are opening simultaneously then why this problem?

    Because Apple's not spent those billions of bucks lying around on a modern, high-speed delivery system or providing DVDs for those who don't have high-speed connections or uncapped DL capabilities.

  • I've down loaded adobe flash player but when I try to veiw video on firefox I'm still told that I need adobe flash player. How do I get firefox to see the flash player download?

    I was trying to view a video I uploaded to facebook using firefox. The system told me to down load adobe flash player. I did but still get the message that I need to down load flash player. How do I get firefox to see the down loaded adobe flash player?

    by installing from within Firefox, Internet Explorer has its own version (Active-X).
    Make sure you are starting in the correct place for Flash
    * http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
    If you want to read PDF files in you browser, you might also want
    * http://get.adobe.com/reader/
    After the download,
    #bring up the download manager ("Ctrl+J") and start your installs. As soon as the install comes up,
    #close Firefox with '''File > Exit''' or "Firefox" button > Exit. Give Firefox some time to close.
    #If install does not proceed, '''terminate "firefox.exe"''' and '''"plugin-container.exe"''' from the "Processes" tab in the Windows Task Manager.
    #* Windows 7 shortcut to the WTM is "Ctrl+Shift+Esc"
    #* or on any Windows system from "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" then choose Windows Task Manager.
    #*Make sure that "firefox.exe" is no longer running -- if it is still running then terminate it by selecting the use "End Process" button or from context menu, and do the same for "plugin-container.exe" if it is found there.
    #proceed with the install.
    '''Warning''': this is the Adobe site and they have chosen to to provide crapware along with their own product. Only install the product you were planning to install. Do not install additional products: including -- "Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus" or "Google Chrome". Installing Google Chrome on your own and installing it because it is offered on the Adobe site are two different things.
    Find updates for your installed plugins at http://www.mozilla.com/plugincheck/ mozilla.com/plugincheck
    -- best to use Adobe's site to really see if their plug-ins are up to date.
    Please fix your caps lock or read what you type, do you think anybody could read my answer if I typed in all caps.
    If the above fails to correct the problem, I would try uninstalling Adobe Flash from your system entirely first, from the control panel then "Programs and Features".

  • My wifi will not turn on. The button is settings seems to be locked. I tried turning it on from the control panel, and also with Siri, but it still does not turn on in settings, so i cannot access wifi. Please help ASAP

    Wifi will not work. The button in settings seems to be locked. Tried control panel and siri to turn it on, doesnt work because the settings wont turn it on. Need help ASAP cause my data limit is approaching.

    If the battery was completely drained the iPad will not respond for some time after connecting it to the charger. Connect the iPad to the charger that came with it and plug that into a good wall outlet. Wait 30 minutes. Then reset the iPad.Press and hold both the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button continuously until the Apple logo appears. Then release the button and let the device restart. You will not lose data doing this. It's like a computer reboot.
    If the iPad restarts let it continue to charge until it's battery shows fully charged. If the iPad still does not start Make an appointment at an Apple Store to have your device examined by a technician. Or contact Apple Support. Be sure to back up your device before taking or sending it to Apple.

  • The screen on my daughter's iPod Touch is cracked and will not power on. I cannot unlock it, I do not believe it was synched with any computer. I would like to transfer her stuff from the old to the new.

    Any help is appreciated on how to unlock an iPod touch that has no screen. All I want to do is transer her apps/pics/music to her new iPod touch.

    - What happens when you connect the iPod to its syncing computer and try to transfer purchases and other things? Error messages?
    - Try resetting the iPod. Nothing will be lost.
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears
    - I know of nothing else to do without erasing the iPod.

  • HT204053 When I try to login to my apple ID on my iphone 4 to use facetime, it will not work and tells me to check my connection?  I have even tried creating a new apple ID but the same message appears

    When I try to log onto my Apple ID to use facetime, it will not work and tells me to check my connection.  I have even tried creating a new apple ID but the same message appears.  I do not understand why this is happening, could anyone help me resolve this issue it is very frusterating that I can not enable facetime or imessage.

    I could do that, however when I select the icloud button (or whatever the heck it is) I am asked to enter the apple id and password. So if you are suppose to create another one for icloud you'd think it would give you the option at this point which would be logical.

  • History in my search bar will not clear even though I have selected all the appropriate settings under tools/privacy etc. Is this a Firefox bug or am I doing something wrong?

    No additional details - just can't figure out why the search history will not clear.

    when i go to Music > Artist > All, as you suggested, i see all the albums i have listed. doesn't really relate to my problem with artists with songs in one album, as well as song w/o album set, and the latter not showing up.
    but that reminds me, why is it when i go to the All section from a particular artist and they do have more than one album (or even no albums), the order of the songs is in the order they are in the albums.. if i wanted the order it is on albums, i would have selected that album for example.. it would be nice if the songs were in alphabetical order when you're NOT browsing by album, making a particular song easier to find (what if you have thirteen albums for example and u aren't sure which album a song is on, now you have to scroll through a seemingly random ordered list to find one song, alphabetical would be SOOOO helpful!)

  • My phone indicates I have app updates but when I try to install then a box appears and asks for my PW. I put in my PW which i verified is correct and the updates circle a while then go back to update box and nothing happens What's going on?

    I have an I Phone 4 OS is 7.1.2. The phone indicates I need to update some apps. I go to the update screen select either all or an individual  app. I select the update box. I am then asked to enter my PW. I do so and select OK. The update circle spins for a while the goes back to saying update. If I repeat the process the same thing happens. I know my PW is correct any ideas?

    I have the same problem.  I have a store ID my family all used to buy things.  I have a different icloud id for me and icloud backups.  Store account is setup properly, and I can download new apps.  It does not ask for a password for these as the phone is signed into the store account.  You can delete an app and reinstall it (using same store account) and it will reinstall no problem.
    The only problem I found with this is some apps I'd previously download for free are no longer free. Once upon a time my store list would show me an icon that an app had been downloaded before (think its the cloud symbol).  Now there is no indication of this.
    Also seems like something is wrong with the store account.  When I tried logging in to type this reply with message with my store ID it immediately gave me an error message and told me the link was possibly outdated.  But logging in with my icloud ID this message will load.  Try again on store ID, error message.  Even though we can log into our store accounts via https://appleid.apple.com/  and manage the account...something seems broken with how its attached to our App store.  (I'm at work so not able to log into itunes with store ID and see what happens)

  • I want to use Firefox but I can't stand the new Google, even when I select Bing as my search engine Google comes up on my home page. I will not use Firefox if I cannot get rid of Google

    Ever since the "improved Google" came out I hear a constant irregular clicking in the background as if Google is updating or checking Data. I cannot stand their new format either, giving me junk advertising that I did not want or ask for. I was a huge Google fan before they really started going for maximum profits now I just want them out of my browser. I tried Opera but like Firefox much better, except for the fact that I cannot extract Google from the home page no matter what I do, it apperas to be in the registry too.

    Please do the following.
    * In the location bar, type '''about:config''' and hit Enter.
    * In the filter at the top, type: '''keyword.URL'''
    * Double click it and remove whatever's in there and replace it with http://bing.com/results.aspx?q=
    The URL to add in "keyword.URL" becomes a link in this post, so right click it and choose "''Copy Link Location''" to copy it to the Windows clipboard. Then hit CTRL+V to paste it. Saves you having to type the whole thing.
    '''To reset your home page, do the following'''.
    * Go to the site you want to set as your homepage.
    * Click the orange Firefox button and go to '''Options '''| '''Options '''| '''General '''
    * Make sure it says "''Show My Homepage''" in the first dropdown menu.
    * Click the button called "'''Use Current Pages'''" to set the homepage to the one you have on the screen.
    After you complete the above steps, install this add-on to prevent another search engine from modifying your preferences: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/browserprotect/
