Customer Question

I plug my Neat Receipts Scanner into my computer and it will not power on. It has been about a year since i used it last and it was working fine then.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?
Customer: Model: Neat Receipts, Model #: NM-1000, Windows 10. I have updated the Neat drivers to Windows 10.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I have switched USB ports, 4 on a PC, and even plugged it into a Mac to see if that would turn it on but nothing worked.

Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

These devices are small, and there isnt any repairs we can really do to them. No parts to replace other then the USB cord.

My advice, would be to grab an identical model at a low cost.. for instance, this one is brand new at 25$ and its t he same model you have.

That would work for you.. As far as why your device failed. Its possible that either heat, or condensation built up in the inside of the scanner depending on how it was stored. And that may have affected the small circuit board inside. However it happened, its clear the device isnt working and needs to be replaced.

If you have further questions, let me know.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
