Last weekend, D went camping so I thought I would start scanning all of our files with my NEW scanner.
Nope. Didn't happen.
The new scanner is broken.
As a public service, I want to share with you things that will not fix your scanner:
1. Yelling and/or cursing out loud will not make the scanner work.
2.? Calling the place you bought it will never work.
3. Nor does expecting a call back from their technical support.
4.? Screaming at the top of your lungs: "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST WORK?!?!?!?" might work in some cases, but did not work in my case.
5.? Turning it on and off does not work.
6.? Re-installing the driver does not work.
7.? Reading the on-line documentation and/or the printed documentation does not work.
8.? Begging the house ghosts, spirit guides, God or other spiritual intervention works for most things, but not when your scanner is broken.
I just thought you needed to know.
Oh, what does work?
Calling the manufacturer and having them send a new one.
Ok, you can return to your regularly scheduled programming.
Thanks for reading.
