Yes ... re the connector.... as I just wrote to ecke that it was back up 
but flaky  and I've had the problem before with the loose connection and
fiddled with it  ... the USB port the scanner is in is a bit loose...

For the third time my monitor went black and revived...

I think I'll find other chores to do for a while !
