Try first unplugging the power cables for ten minutes, also restart the computer.

Check if this model has a lock button to secure the scan, this is usually indicated with a lockpad, and is a small tab, if there is one is indicated on the manual.

Plug it back and do the following:

This sounds like an hardware fault, since the scanner starts, but just in case , ensure the drivers are working fine by reinstalling software from scanner disk. And eventually test the scanner on a different computer, for example a laptop. Use the scanner CD to do intall scanner drivers before connecting the scanner.

If it still does not work.

Check if the scanner lamp goes on when you send a scan, if not the lamp must be replaced.

The most likely is that the traction belt had slipped out, one of the mechanichs are stuck, or the motor is faulty.

In this case the scanner must be taken apart, the job can be done at any local repair shop.

My Canon MG8120 all-in-one makes a loud noise when copying (not when printing). How do I fix it?


Dear
from the question I understand, the scanner move to right and during return it starts noise.

The problem with scanner assembly, It might be dust accumulated on gears, the scanner belt might have loose or the grips of the belt has worn out. Proper cleaning and lubricating the moving parts may overcome also if the belt worn out it has to be replaced.
In case of at home position it gives noise then the home position sensor may dirty/dusty, it has to be cleaned.

thanks.

Does it say Scanner Failure...?

If then try these steps mentioned bellow:

Remove all 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 above the place wher we install ink cartridges it is a metal part which moves in a metal bar) 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.
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)
Then if it prompts the ink cartridges insert ink cartidges
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

Scanner making clicking noise


I just got that scanner back, L1 error code on a Sharp copier. Means the scanner can't move quick enough to satisfy the specs.. Removed the lock, not needed. Oiled the bar, scanner works ok now. Will look for Triflon lubricant, my favorite. Will check with local repair shop for recommended lubes. That light sensor switch is not necessarily on your unit, but I see them on a lot of machines. Sometimes it's just a little tab or button, hard to find. Check the freedom of your scanner bar. Temporarily loosen the drive if you can. The bar must move freely.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck


hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.

Makes grinding noises, refuses to scan; WinXP


take a look on the underside of the scanner. there may be a switch that goes from lock to unlock. try to move it to lock and back into unlock. this lock is usually used to lock the bar from moving during shipping. if this got moved back to lock or bumped while you had it turned over, the scanner will not allow the bar to move.. try this first.
