Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Unless your scanner needs to have its driver set on the computer replaced - which might possibly help with the transparency scanning function - then it will need repair.
Not so much because the light for the transparency scanning cannot be replaced, as owing to there being no available replacement for that light... I have searched for it and found no source for such a replacement.
Would you like a guide in detail to trying the replacement of scanner drivers on your computer? if so, please tell me whether you have an Apple or a Windows pc.
That would be a shame. But after 10 years? well, you might want to donate it to some school or other establishment that could use a scanner and does not need transparency or slide scanning any more than it need ostrich feathers. ? It's just a thought.
A thought: be sure you have a scanner that you can buy, that does transparencies also... otherwise you may as well keep this one, or even have it repaired. I'm not sure that slide scanning is hard to find nowadays, but it's something to consider.
Thank you for asking your question here at JustAnswer.com. Please have a good day.
