“Too hot is the problem...I have Mustek V56L from Dick...”

Written on: 08/01/2004 by Glenz (1 review written)

Too hot is the problem...I have Mustek V56L from Dick Smith. After a number of replacements and at the point of throwing it in the Bin I realised that the only Ventilation holes in the base where blocked by the power supply plastic sheild. Also, there is no other ventelation to allow air flow so after 30 mins or so the whole unit over heats and the CPU chippy starts spitting the dummy causing slow operation and lock ups etc etc. The fix for me was to go to the trouble of ventelating the top cover and the unit has never missed a beat since. Maybe Dick Smith or the consumers institute should be given one to test and I'm sure they will also find that over heating is an issue with these beasties. (ps removing the cover will void your warrenty but now armed with this knowledge you can take appropriate action).
