Epson V700 problem

Talk Film & Conventional - Talk Photography - www.talkphotography.co.uk
I rarely use the V700, but I used it yesterday and it worked just fine. Today it scanned to the Preview stage and shoed the 4 strips of 35mm film in the holder, but the scanner light then flashed red and it wouldn't scan. Google got me a couple of suggestions including a this youtube one that said:

I've done what was suggested, but still get the same red light, so any help would be gratefully received. I'm taking it that it can't be the lamp when it scans to the Preview stage?

Hi, This probably means that the scanner light isn't moving. Follow these steps to check all the possibilities for the problem : 1) Check if the lock switch on the back of the scanner is unlocked 2) Is the scanner perfectly horizontal? 3) Have you used all the original cables? Disconnect and reconnect them. 4) Switch the scanner on. 4) If the problem persists, switch the scanner off, and physically remove the scanner lid. 5) Start the scanner again. The green light should now burn 6) Switch the scanner off, reinstall and reconnect the lid. 7) Switch the scanner on. Everything should work now. Let me know if this solves your problem.
