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.

Scanner won't move, just clicks


I had the same problem. I just followed the solution here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t6219664-hp_6110
for "scanner failure". there are instructions on how to remove the document feeder and scanner glass, clean the glass and lubricate the rod that the scanner travels on. I followed the procedure and my printer/scanner now works fine.

When I try to make a copy the machine make a screeching noise and a blank copy comes out.


Leave the lid up when you make the copy and see if the light bar moves from left to right when copying. Check the scanner lock knob under the left hand side where the papers come out. Make sure it is not locked. Sometimes the scanners get stuck a lot and can cause blank copies. If it is stuck then you just have to remove the glass and then clean and lubricate the steel bar at the back that the whole unit rides back and forth on. Once that is doene it should work fine. Make sure to manually run the scanner bar out and back a few times so that you can get the whole rail lubricated. Do all this with the power turned off.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When scanning on my Epson CX7800, the scanner grinds and makes a lot of noise. What do i have to do to fix this. Is there some kind of greasing or lubrication that needs to be done, or a realignment?


Hi

Check if there is a lock for the scanner, normally its on the right or left handside when you open the cover for scanner. try to toggle lock and position it to unlock., try scanning again....

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.
