    Thank you for writing back. Tried your suggestion but did not fix the problem. Any other ideas?

    Thank you for the advice. How do you reset the cartridges? They are new ones.

    Non fa la scansione, perã² tutto il resto funziona. Ho pigiato il pulsante della scansione, il pulsante di accensione lampeggia, ma la scansione non parte.

Un-hook it from the computer. Turn it off then on. See if it may be a code from the computer causing it.
Also, Check inside and make sure there isn't anything that is keeping the carriage from moving freely .
Also, Have you changed cartridges lately?
Reseat the cartridges.

    Take them out, make sure that you removed the tape from the cartridge and re-install them. Verify that they are in the correct holder.

Epson Stylus CX4600


If all of the lights on the control panel are flashing and you see the letter E in the Copy window, the print head may not be able to move back and forth freely. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the Stylus CX.

  2. Open the scanner.

  3. Remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.

  4. Carefully lower the scanner.

  5. Turn the Stylus CX back on.
alert_note.gif Note: If you can't remove the paper or foreign object yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the Stylus CX.

And the last thing you could do, is to check if the rod where your carriage slide is dry...if so put a little bit of oil on it

Can't find replacement lamp for Scanmaker 6400XL


JKL Components was able to create a new bulb for me for Microtek 9800 XL with Transparency Adapter. If you have a different model might need to send the bulb so they can see if it needs to be modified. Worked perfectly. Call Larry: 818-896-0019 ext 124. Very nice, and very helpful
