I get a red line down one side of the page when scanning using the adf on a HP 5590 scanner


My guess is the ADF has picked up some dirt. Check the path very carefully.

The bulb is not bad, the bulb replacement light is not lit and the bulb appears fine- the green light goes on then off right after you start the projector ---no heat off the back of the unit when starting...


If you have the replaced lamp with you it will be good to place it back again to see the indication to change off.
If so then the bulb must be good but if the same situation comes on then it might be the lamp.
please cross check the power supply for any errors to switch on or low power to the lamp

Clean the **** glass with alcohol. The **** glass is the little glass that paper is scanned over when using a automatic document feeder.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

HP Scanjet 5590 Lamp Error "Bad or fading lamp (error -4430)" Fixable? Can I do it? Best source to purchase?


From HP forums:

The first thing I would do is to make sure your TMA is properly attached. Next, make sure your software is up to date and that any applicable patches have been applied.

Next, what OS are you using? What application are you trying to use to scan with? Can you scan from any other application such as word or another graphics program?
