I'm not too familiar with the inner workings of a scanner. How do I go about 
opening up the casing?

  try opening up the casing and see if the camera moves on it's tracks. 
Sometimes the little belt that moves it needs some oil if the unit is old.

    Hi, all.

    I know it's been awhile since I last wrote; I've been monitoring the list, 
but there have been some changes in my life, and I haven't been able to have 
much time for correspondence.

    I do have a question. I was trying to scan something today, and when I turn 
on my scanner, it makes a weird clicking sound. The computer recognizes that 
the scanner has been turned on, and it makes the usual sound it makes when it 
starts up, but along with that there is a clicking sound. Also, if I go to scan 
something, it sounds like it's trying but also makes the clicking sound, and 
then I get an error saying that the scanner is not responding.
    Anyone ever hear of this and is this something minor that can be fixed? I 
checked all cables and cords and everything is connected properly. Any help 
would be appreciated. I'm hoping it is something minor so I don't end up having 
to try to get a new one.
