Default Powerlook 3000 Scanning Problems

Dear All,

I just got a UMAX Powerlook 3000 scanner and have tried to preview a scan in both Windows XP with an Adaptec 1460 PCMCIA-SCSI adapter and on Windows Vista with an Adaptec 1480A adapter. I have tried Silverfast, UMAXScan, and Vuescan and on both systems I have the same problem when hitting preview or scan. The glass moves out all the way and when it reaches the end, it makes a very loud ringing sound and stays out for about 10 min or so, it actually doesn't go back in or scan. I then have to turn off the scanner and turn it back on before it starts to slowly creep back into the machine, it takes a minute or so to go all the way in again.

I have heard it could be do to the sensor, the motor, or the cable/scsi card. The previous owner says it worked on his machine although he was using a desktop SCSI card not a PCMCIA one. Let me know what this could be and if there could be a way to fix it and/or test to see what's wrong with it? Perhaps it has to do with the SCSI ID? It is at 0 but I have tried it at 6 and 5 I think? I am using a 25-pin scsi cable to the PCMCIA card.

Thank you and Kind Regards,
