DECimage and (failed) MD410 replacement?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a Vax 4000-60 connected to a SCSI MD410 scanner.  The scanner is
 kaput!!!.  The model on the back of the unit says Ricoh IS410.  Did Digital
 modify this Ricoh scanner (microcode,or whatever)?  Can this scanner be
 replaced with a Ricoh IS410 or equi
valent?  The system still uses the retired Decimage Application Services?

The Answer is :

  The MD410 is based on the Ricoh IS410.
  The only scanner that was supported by the (now retired) DECimage
  software was the MD410.  There were corrections made to the firmware
  of the D410 from that of the Ricoh equivalent scanner (to get the
  MD410 to resolve problems found during testing; to allow the scanner
  to work reliably on the VAXstation series), and the OpenVMS Wizard
  does not know if these changes were ever retrofit into any subsequent
  Ricoh firmware releases or Ricoh scanners.
