View Full Version : [kubuntu] Epson Perfection 2480 Scanner: odd sound

April 17th, 2011, 10:22 PM
Hi, all!

I have started using my EPSON Perfection 2480 Flatbed scanner with kubuntu (10.04 LTS), sane/xsane. I have noticed an odd scratching sound at the end of the reverse movement of the scanner head, never noticed that under Windows with native software. The sound is irritating, as if the toothed wheel it tries to move the head beyond its parking place but fails and skips a couple of teeth in attempt.

Has anyone come across this? How can it be solved?
