following this link i've found resetting instructions for this scanner:


1.. Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable from the
scanner. Make sure the power cable is still connected to the
power source.
2.. Press the Scan and Email buttons at the same time, while
plugging the power cable back into the scanner. The scanner will
enter a Demo Mode.
3.. Press the Cancel button on the scanner to start the test.
4.. To end the test, disconnect and reconnect the power cable
without holding the buttons down.


I've had exactly the same problem with my scanjet 5400c (blue distorted images) but after resetting the scanner (see instuctions posted above) the problem was fixed

Replace or resolder your convergance IC's. What is a common problem is over time the heat emitted by the chips weakens the solder joints on the circuit board. If your lucky just a resolder job is all it needs.

Documents scan as images only on x4550 lexmark. have reinstalled number of times. when i first bought it, it work fine. i can't edit documents because they come up as images on ms word


Most probably, the scan software is corrupted now. Have you tried uninstalling the software completely, then reinstalling it using the installation cd? What is the operating system of your computer? How is the printer connected to your computer, hardwired or wireless?

My HP F4280 Deskjet All-In-One does not scan!


Under Control Panel, click System, than click hardware, than click device manager.

Uninstall USB Controllers, and than unplug the USB cord from back of the PC.

Once the USB controllers have been uninstalled, restart your PC.

Once the PC has been restarted, put the USB Cable back into the PC, and let the Operating system reinstall the drivers.

This should reinstall all drivers such as twain, usb, etc..

If the distortion happens inside windows, this is a graphics driver issue but, on the other hand, if this happens before Windows or outside Windows, this is a video card problem

PARTIAL IMAGE


Are you getting the full travel of the scan head, then it delivers only part of image? or Is the scan head only going part way. It seems to be a software maladjustment. Uninstall the software and driver Restart the computer and reinstall the software Then come back
