Canon NP 1215 copier:

The lamp is working, but it does not move across the bedplate.
Taking off the glass, the lamp fitting feels very heavy the drag across - oiling the runner has not helped.

There is a drive gear, clutch or electromagnetic clutch that is either broken or dirty(slipping)


remove the back cover and manually move the image assembly back and forth on the rail
determine were the drive gear, cable or motor is connected to the scan/image assembley

See if you can observe the mechanism from the back or top of the machine by ressing th eprint button
(caution do not touch any electrical connections) you may have to trip any safety switches to get machine to come on with covers off

This drive assembly can be complicated if it is a series of cables if it is just an electromagnetic clutch with a gear it is relatively easy (may need ring clip remover or allen head (metric wrench) remove the assemby and clean it

If the assembly does not move after you have done the following the drive motor/clutch needs to be replaced( usually requires technician) YOu must be very mechanically inclined

What will I do if my copier's bulb (light) is not functioning?

You will have to replace it. You should make sure the copier is unplugged because there is line voltage on the lamp. Remove the glass and move the scanner to the right a bit. You remove the black lamp shield. One or two screws, I can't remember. At the rear of the lamp you should see a spring that needs to be removed. This keeps the lamp in place. Get the correct lamp, and reverse the procedure. Test to make sure the lamp comes on before replacing the shiled and the glass. Some times the from spring lead doesn't make good contact and you have to try again. Be sure to uplugg the copier if you have to work with the lamp. Sometime the foil that powers the lamp or the connections go bad. Good Luck
