    This is interesting.
    I will run some tests on the weekend.
    However my scanner goes to the right and the error lamp flashes. I have color quartet.

    So when you turn on the scanner, do you see switch on the white lamp?
    Turn on the scanner and open the cover to check the lamp.

    Sorry for the delay.
    You mean the illumination lamp on the cover? yes it's on as the base light.
    Now it show an error even on startup and it goes away and the scanner sit with "on" green.
    Scanner is also recognised in windows but it does exactly the same. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't have enough knowledge to try to fix it myself.

Any help? Do you have the contact of this person in Denmark? I am incredibly sad as I got it for next to nothing.
    There a switches on the back with numbers, in a certain position the scanner will go to transportation mode, etc. If u still need it I can look in the manual.

    I would switch it to transportation mode and back, be sure to remove the glass tray before doing it. There are also some fiidle switches wich are sometimes faulty.

    Please write me an email to chbaasner[at], so we can skype or something.

    Best wishes, Christopher

    I found the issue on my scanmate f8 plus which is a broken trapezoidal lead screw nut tr10x2. Does anyone have a spare one or can point me in the right direction? I have found many online that are similar but not exactly the same and cost a lot of money.
