Good morning,am trying to fix a hp officejet pro l7780.It can't scan,copy or send fax.Could someone assist me please?

Does the fax/scanner light come on at all? If not, then that's the problem, because that's the only part that likely needs to warm up.

Fail to initializing

The fail to initialize is typically a problem with the document scanner...but not always. here is a quick test you can try. Turn the unit off then power it on again. Slightly lift the copy lid as the unit goes through warm up attention to the light color emitting form the scammer. it starts to blink red, then changes to a bright white IF the scanner is working properly. IF the scanner is NOT working properly the scanner stays RED during the warm up.

The copy button keeps blinking orange

CAUSE: The scanner bulb is defective or does not receive enough electricity to warm up properly.
Try the following steps to try to solve the issue:
1. Unplug the power cord from the unit, wait around 10 seconds and plug it back. 2. Try to make a copy to verify if this procedure solved the issue. 3. If the unit is still unable to make a copy, you will need to get it serviced and scanner bulb may need a replacement.

Changing a starter

1) buy a rebuilt starter and take it and your car to a muffler shop, not a chain store either. ask them if you sit around long enough until a break in there scheduled work, will they change your starter for 40 bucks.

2) get a repair manual for about 10 bucks on ebay. get a good floor jack and stands. get a dry warm place to work. get some tools and lighting. get a rebuilt starter. follow the instructions in the manual for swapping the starter.

once you have done it the second way you will always do it the first way.

Xerox C20 displaying "Scanner Locked" message. Won't copy.

  1. Press the power switch to the OFF (O) position. The power switch is located on the lower, left side of the machine.


  2. Pull the scan lock switch toward the front of the machine to unlock the Scanner.



    NOTE: The scan lock switch is located on the bottom of the Scanner Module. Make sure the scan lock is completely free. It sometimes hangs at the halfway point.

  3. Press the power switch to the ON (|) position. A 'Warming Up, Please Wait' message will be displayed on the Display Screen. Warm up time is less than 40 seconds from power ON and less than 25 seconds from the Power Saver mode.

Hangs up while trying to make copies with message saying "Warming Up".

You have a bad scanner assembly, however, it would cost more to have it repaired than to buy a new one.

KONICA 7020 - Blank copy

I have never heard of a developer moving backwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???
the motor that runs it, the .... there is too much involved to mention. A developper moving backwards will spill so much toner in the machine anyway.
If you get a copy and then it goes blank, that tells me you have a problem with the SEPERATION UNIT, it may be shorting out causing the paper to rise against the drum giving you blank copies.
A blurr copy tells me there is a problem with the Scanner/Optics area. maybe the rails that the scanner run on are too dry or has a problem, the optics(mirrors) may be misaligned.
Not sure what you mean by (hanging) ??

Cannon scanner D1250U2F and Hp photosmart printer 8250

This is a compatibility issue between the Copy function of Toolbox and the specific HP printer driver. The only work-around would be to scan your image and save it, then print it from another application. One other possibility would be to get Toolbox version 2.2.x from the N650U scanner download page. This version will be limited in functionality, but COPY button should function as expected.
