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.

depending on the scanner the belt may not be broken, however the gear that it rides on may not be moving, or the belt is slipping. Some scanners the glass can be removed for you to visially see the gear and evaluate from there

The bar is locked in the a protected position. That the bar tha moves across the scan.. To unlock the scanner, find the lock on the back of the scanner, remove the tape securing the lock, and pull up on the lock. Rate this with 4 diamonds before logging off.

HP C7180 All-In-One (Fax)


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.

Clicking nosie from scanner bed on epson cx5800f


I had a similar problem, the scanner bar was stuck to the far left side. Here's how I fixed it:

1)Unplug the printer, disconnect any cables/phone lines to it.
2)Lift up the entire scanner bed housing(you will see the printer ink cartridges).
3)Locate the access patch (approx 1 cm x 1 cm square) along the left edge of the scanner bed housing(this is the side that closes in, next to the keypad buttons).
4)Using a small knife blade, peel off the patch from the corners and edges(it's sticky. Save it, you can stick it back over the hole when you're done).
5)Stick a pen through the access hole, and push the scanner bar to the right, approximately 2-3 inches.
6)Now, close the scanner housing, plug in the printer, and power it on.

It should reset and re-calibrate the scanner bar. If it doesn't, repeat steps 5) and 6) a couple times, until the printer correctly performs calibration. Then, you can put the sticky patch back over the hole, and you're ready to go. Hope this helps!

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
