Question about Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

Microtek Artixscan 2500 will not properly go through self test. When it is plugged in and turned on it is supposed to move the carriage while the two orange indicator lights flash. After the carriage movement in complete the two indicator lights should steadily glow orange and the scanner lamp should go on. when I turn it on the scanner lamp comes on immediately and the carriage moves. The transparency light glows and the reflective light flashes. When the carriage finishes its movement both indicator lights flash and the scanner lamp stays on. It is also not recognized through the SCSI card by Vuescan. One of the scanner software programs which should recognize it.

Reinstall scanner software. Scan again for SCSI devices, if controller does not recognise it, then the logic board on the scanner is faulty.

    First have a look at the bios settings, check that scsi had not been disabled.
    Check also if your SCSI card is working on Windows device list, eventually try reinstalling SCSI adapter drivers if you get a yellow sign on it.
    A SCSI device does not need a driver to be detected, if scanning does not even detect the scanner, then SCSI adapter on scanner is probably faulty.
    And the adapter on a scanner is often integrated on mainboard.
    Try unplugging power and SCSI from all devices, computer and scanner.
    If it still does not work you need to take the scanner to a repair shop.

    Did you scan for SCSI devices, if scanner is not detected at SCSI bios level you cannot go any further in troubleshooting.
    If I suggest you to reinstall software or replace parts, it wont make any sense, as scanner cannot communicate with computer at hardware level.

    All you can do is removing your computer SCSI adapter from his slot (PCI, PCMCIA etc.), putting it back in place and reinstalling the SCSI card drivers. If it is a PCI card also swap to a different PCI slot.
    This just in case the fault depends on the SCSI adapter.

    Check also SCSI cable and connector, if the cable is faulty, the computer sending bad signal to the scanner can cause some weird behaviour on the device.

    Other thing you can do is changing the connection, from SCSI to usb. Install drivers for USB from the following page before connecting (or use your disk): Here is download for XP

    Here all downloads, select model.

    Here is also FAQ from Microtek when scanner is not detected.

HP 6940 print head jammed.resume light flashing


Welcome to FixYa!

Usually print head/carriage jam is caused by paper jams or previously cleared out paper jams that left a small torn paper inside the printer.

Turn off the printer by pressing and releasing the power button.
After the printer turns off, press the power button to turn the printer on again.
The printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolved. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the printer does not turn off, clear any paper jam. Press the resume button on the printer front panel. If the paper jam does not clear, continue with this procedure.

Leave the printer turned on, disconnect the power cable from the printer, and then disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer.

Push the two latch handles on the rear access door of the printer toward each other, and then remove the door. Please refer to the image below.

jas247_32.gif
Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover.
Remove the paper carefully. It is possible to damage the printer when removing paper from the front of the printer.

Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, turn it on by pressing the power button.

Again, the printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the Power light is blinking and the print carriage is still in a stalled position, continue with this procedure.

With the printer turned on, open the printer cover. The print carriage might move into the access area automatically. Allow it to move to that position.
If the print carriage does not move automatically into the access area, turn off the printer by pressing the power button.

Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.

Looking in through either the ink cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure that no obstructions under or around the print carriage are blocking it from moving.

Make sure that the print carriage can move freely across the width of the printer by gently pushing the print carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions.

Remove and reinstall the print cartridges. Make sure that it is properly installed back.
Close the printer cover and connect back the power cord.
Print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

To print a self-test page, make sure the printer is turned on. The USB cable of the printer to the computer must be disconnected to make sure that we are isolating the printer problem.

Press and hold the Print and Cancel button at the same time. Make sure that the printer is loaded with paper. The self-test page will like the image below.

I have the same problem.... trying to use lubricants and done some cleaning, but no luck... till i found out that using an extension cord with several devices plugged in will lessen the amount of current that flows to the devices.. that's why the printer's motor can't able to do his job because of no enough power.... Connect the printer's plug directly to the wall...
