Scanner wont run on LPT1...But Printer will.
Posted on 1998-03-17
My Umax Astra 600P ran great from the parallel port of my old Aptiva. But when I connected it to my new home built, and ran the Scanner Test, I get the following error message:
"Unable to Control Scanner or Not Ready"/ "Device Not Found"...etc.
(I also get "Scanner Link Failure" when attempting to scan or copy a document).
BTW, I tried reinstalling the software, and of course, checked the cable connections.
FYI, I installed a second parallel port just for the scanner, and that doesn't work either. In short, I have two parallel ports, and can't get the scanner to work on either one.
(I'm running Win '95 with 64mb of SDRAM.)
Have any idea what's going on here? Any help would be appreciated.
