Check Device Manager to see if the scanner is recognized.  Otherwise
"scan for hardware changes" so that the computer can pick it up.  This
is all assuming you're on a PC.

I'm a little concerned that when you turn it on, the amber light is
solid and doesn't blink.  That suggests it isn't initializing

If the problem is related to dust, usually the amber light just blinks
forever and never completes initializing.  But who knows?  If you have
the tool that Polaroid was giving away in the early days of this model
to clean dust, give that a try.
