Most likely the sensor that reads the scanner is at home position, is out of place.
It is probably hitting or rattling against the right side.
remove glass, (W/POWER OFF), move scanner away, and look on the sides of the machine there should be a U shaped sensor there, on the scanner there should be a L bracket that goes between the sensor

Scanner error 5 appears. Have done all the recommended things in the manual plus other things like turning everything off for the night, rebooting computer, etc. numerous times.


Sorry but I have a bad news. Scanner error xx means that the scanner lamp is not able to move and if it does it cannot go all the way by either something blocking it or a gear worn. In some cases it does like a humming or clicking noise. The printer need service, probably a new scanner. You can try an NV RAM: Turn it off and press and hold the down arrow and cancel. Then turn it on and wait for the message ''permanent storage init'' then release the keys and will get back to ready. If the error persist contact HP they are giving 2 years warranty from the purchase date if that message appear. Good Luck

Scanner lockup


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.(You can apply little more pressure if it does not move easily)
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 a test page or make a copy

If it still makes a loud noise and the message comes up as scanner failure, then either the scanner or the scanner machanisum is bad, you may have to replace the unit

Good Luck

Canon copier PC720


A E2 code deals with the scanner. The optics of the copier. Has itbeen moved resently? Your lens may be off it's track. Turn the copier off and remove the copy board glass and the Black Box and try to move the lens and the scanning mirrors to see if they can move smoothly. If not you have found your cause of the noise and what needs to be repaired. It may not be worth getting fixed. That is older model, it's up to you..

If the unit is in warranty, get Epson out to it. If not check the simple things like making sure the head lock is not on. Look to see if the scanner head starts to move at all when you power up the unit. If the head does not move at all or makes an unusual noise, chances are the unit is complaining that the head is stuck or requires too much effort to move it. Other possibilities include a communication error between scanner and main board of the SPC or SPC and your computer - indicates broken connection or bad USB cable. POssibly a fault with the mainboard of the SPC itself. Error ?Cause *Remedy Scanner error ? Lamp has burnt out. * Replace the scanner lamp. ? Power is turned on without unlocking the scanner. * Unlock the CR. ? The scanner carriage is interfering with any other part. * Remove the obstacle. * Replace the scanner carriage unit.
