Start up problem with printer

I've had my printer for a couple of years and have never had any problems. Tonight it start making a grinding sound and I got an error message "Scanner failure. Turn power off then on again." I wasn't trying to scan anything, and I've turned the power off and on again several times. Always the same thing -- this heaving, grinding noise that lasts for a couple of minutes, then I get the same error message. I don't think the machine is kaputt, because I've got my phone hooked up through it and I'm able to get a dial tone (the line goes to the printer, then a line from the printer goes to the modem. The whole problem when I hooked up a new phone, but I don't know why that should have caused an upset -- the DSL filters were undisturbed. Can anyone offer any help?

    Yes, a grinding noise as if the carriage is trying to move, but is stuck, or something.

Your scanner glass is get dirty and all scanners make a self diagnostic program when we turn on the printers.
At this point, you will hear a little noise from the scanner carriage lamp, witch is doing self calibrating. In this calibrating time the scanner unit "read" the white and the black levels, and the white (in your case) is not white, is quite gray because is dirty.



The solution is a very simple, but require much skill.

You must disassembly the scanner unit, remove any screw you see (you need an no. 2 phillips screwdriver) and very gently remove the upper side (with glass) from the rest of scanner unit. Please note that is several plastic fasteners to be disposed.

after you remove the glass (with a plastic frame) you get a small tissue of cotton and soaking with an windows cleaner solutions. Gently clean the BOTH surfaces of scanner glass.

For assembly follow the reverse procedure.

Beware to the glass, it has only 3 mm thickness. Don't broke!

Like I sad: simple problem, but require much skill. If you think is to difficult for you, please go to the service.

I have a epson artisan 800 I'm tring to fax from the automatic feeder but it keeps making a grinding sound and then it says paper jam but paper never even went through


I took apart my artison 800 with 'paper jam' error and grinding noise. Sadly enough, it is the plastic gear attached to the stepper motor which is slipping and making the grinding noise. I tried to glue it and it worked once or twice and failed again. It is a design flaw and Epson should repair this for free if they are honest about this problem. Ir is not a user-caused problem.

Makes grinding noise especially when shutting down


a grinding noise in a dryer is usually due to a broken motor coupling. Not sure however since you didnt include a model number, brand or year the machine was purchased. If you own a somewhat older model (bought from 4-6 years ago) it is most likely the motor coupling however newer models can have some other problems and usually require a service tech to come and look at.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Grinding noise on startup


Problem The Resume light continues to blink after the paper jam is cleared.
OR
The carriage is stuck or making a grinding noise. Solution 1. Lift the top cover to the printer. 2. Turn the printer off and then on again. 3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts. 4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct). 5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover. Turn the printer back on! 6. Reconnect the power cord. 7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover

Makes loud sounds


I had the same problem with the loud grinding sound. The gears on the cartridge(s) is not turning but rather stripping creating a grinding sound. Reinstall all of the toner cartridges. If that doesn't work, pull each cartridge out and manually turn the gear on the cartridge. If the problem persists, you may need to purchase a new toner cartridge.
