My scanner is broken.
It does not work at all.
An LED light still glimmers on the front, but it is very faint.
Mike Levyssohn (mlict.nl),
who revived my lap top last year June,
analyses the situation.
His conclusion is
Mike's analysis proves to be correct.
The adapter does not supply power any more.
This seems a simple problem.
The scanner is still new, so I'm still in the warranty period.
Unfortunately, the adapter is a
Well plenty of suppliers, I think in an optimistic mood. It's not so easy. The adapter is of a rare kind, supplies 15 Volts direct current. So does this make the whole scanner a total loss? Should I write off the scanner prematurely and buy a new one? It's not a problem, just an expense. But I refuse to give up without a fight. It must be possible to repair such a simple thing.
It takes weeks, even for Mike, to find a replacement for the adapter.
Marco, one of his ADP
colleagues happens to have a 15 Volts adapter available, thanks heavens.
So, problem solved?
No, not yet.
The power plug of the new adapter does not fit the scanner.
Mike is optimistic:
I'm growing more and more confident that things will work out in the end. Moving a plug is dead easy. Setback: The cable of the new adapter is not compatible with the old one. In addition it is moulded, hard to detach. No problem, Mike just cuts the plug off.
|A big cheer for Mike Levyssohn and his colleague Marco.|
