UMAX Astra 3400 Scanner

  1. The scanner test was successful for my UMAX Astra 3400 Scanner; however, everytime I attempt to scan a new document, the prompt to perform a scanner test always appears with the same error message:

    Scanner in use: the scanner is used by the other applications, please close that application before accessing the scanner.

    However, there are no applications in use when I open applications tab in Task Manager.

    Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Reinstall all your drivers and give it another go...

    The applications tab might not show anything, but I would be pretty sure that the Processes tab does. Have a look in there and see if there is anything running resembling the scanner program.
