    Maybe someone here has encountered this same problem that I am having with
    the Minolta Dimage Elite 5400 scanner. It's about 18 months old and I've
    done about 7000 scans, most of them at resolution of about 1350 and with
    ICE. This evening I had just carried out some scanning and left the computer
    and scanner switched on while I went out. There was no film holder in the
    scanner. I came back and noticed the on/off light blinking slowly as it
    normally does. However, when I activate the scanner software I get the
    ERROR 4 message about there being no connection to the scanner. If I switch
    off the scanner then switch it back on it does not go through the usual
    15-20 secs of whirring noise that it normally goes through, instead the
    noise lasts about 1 sec and then the on'off light blinks continuosly.
    Reistalling the software or using another computer makes no difference.
    Is it knackered? :-(
