    scanner failure; unable to print or copy items; What needs to be done to correct the problems?

  • Anonymous May 01, 2009

    I have cleaned the mirrors and the lens. No way. The lamps are not defective. Parts are not available. It seems to be a firmware-problem. Does HP just want to sell new machines? I won't buy there with this experience.

    The Scanner Failure light keeps coming on. I reset and it will come back on after a few minutes. I am able to print however. Can scan and copy a document after I reset until the Scanner Failure ligtht starts to blink..
    Right now I just let it blink and only use the printer function.

It's a pretty common problem for this model printer. clean the flatbed glass inside will help and if possible clean the mirrors on the scanning head will completely solve the problem. Just remind, don't use any solution. And there is a very small chance is the granding wire connector loose. Good luck.

Follow the steps below to perform a fax diagnostics test. 1. Set up the all-in-one for faxing according to the setup instructions found in the product's User's Guide. 2. Make sure you have inserted the print cartridges and loaded paper before starting the test. 3. Press Setup, 6, and then 6. This displays the Tools menu and then select Run Fax Test. The HP all-in-one displays the status of the test on the color graphics display and prints a report. 4. Review the report. * If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax settings listed in the report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or incorrect fax setting can cause faxing problems. * If the test fails, review the report for more information on how to fix any problems found. 5. After you pick up the fax report from the all-in-one, press OK. Then turn the printer off, and then on again. If necessary, resolve any problems found and rerun the test. If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax settings listed in the report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or incorrect fax setting can cause faxing problems.

Scanner failure will not let you to make copies nad scan but you will be able to print from computer and receive fax.

Even then try the steps mentioned bellow:

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One.
Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet.
Now move the carriage (carriage is the one which holds the cartridge) Too and Fro till you feel the carriage is moving smoothly.
Then insert the cartridges close the access door.
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector (If possible connect it to a different power outlet)
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys
until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Now try printing Printing from computer,
If you are able to print from computer you should be able to receive faxes.
Try printing a test fax.

Press Menu/Setup> Then press the right arrow key to locate Tools> Then Press Ok> Again press the right arrow key to locate Run Fax Test> And press OK

Hp officejet d145 carriage error & scanner failure


Re carriage error - suggest cleaning the encoder strip. this is the plastic strip running parallel to the drive belt but about 1 inch above it. They frequently become covered with ink spray and so are impossble to read by the carriage position detector.

Beware.

Only use cold water and be very gentle. also make sure you dry the strip thoroughly before switching the machine back on.

Re scanner problem 2 possibilities.
(1) make sure printer power cable is connected directly into wall socket not through an extension cable. This can reduce the voltage getting through to the scanner lamp.

(2) if that don,t work then I suggest you take the scanner apart and clean the reference strip. this is a white bar on the scanner glass which tells the machine what the light level is. This can be a bit tricky so if you've never done it before consult someone who has or get back in touch with me. HP don't want you to do this but it sometimes works.

Black line down right margin


Have you tried a new toner and drum unit? if not please do so. If that doesn't work then it is a scanner lamp failure and will need replacing.

You can fix it but trying to obtain this part for such an old machine will be hard. Don't know the part number sorry.

Scanner failure


I assume from your remark you are using this as a stand alone device or are you connected to Computer? If you are using as stand alone try through the computer. If you are using it through the computer then simply re install the software. If you are using it as stand alone only. Contact the makers website for more detailed support.
