Noise When papers are fed into scanner there is a loud noise. It sounds like a grinding but scanning still works. I have cleaned rollers, etc. However, after a couple sheets go through quietly, the noise starts again

    I had a 2026c that was way louder than the other ones in the office. This is how I fixed it: If you open the scanner door, you will find there are 2 rollers that come out without tools. The roller that resides on the body portion of the scanner has a tentsion spring on each side. These springs were a little loose, although they didn't feel that loose ( I compared it to another less-noisy scanner ) After bending them a bit with a screwdriver, it was quiet.

Straight thin line prints on copies from feeder


Hi,
When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) it is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying! For example see the below picture: -

Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Also note that your machine can scan an image only 8.15 inches wide, regardless of how wide the paper is.

The paper partially feeds in the upper tray and then you hear a grinding noise and it says scanner failure


clean the rollers
Used a clean paper
Open the area the paper feeds in on the scanner
lift the roller
without paper try to make a copy
press the flag-like hardware part on the ground portion of the scanner feeder
then forcefully put the whiteroller to the ground as if its trying to make a copy without the paper
to test if its working fine while you are pressing down the flag structure on the ground area also do it 2x

- wipe the rollers
- specially the one that feeds up the paper
try to scan again
- in case no go
= remove all removable parts
paper, cartridges ,black box and power supply
lift the printer turn it upside down makse sure the cover is open
so taht any foreign material will fall
shake it for 5x
return all the parts
- in case no go
have a printer repair on your area
usually its only on the rollers

- Hope it help

Hi a vertical line is in image scanned please tell me how to solve this problem thanks


The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the scanner top (by pullung it near the area where you feed the paper to scan). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning!

Good Luck!
Hope this helps! Dont forget to appreciate the solution!!

The scanner works but makes a grinding noise that is getting worse


Normally Canon scanners work well for long time, Change the pickup rollers for every 250,000 pages and check other rollers for every 500,000 pages. In case you have been scanning documents with quite a good amount of dust, you may need to check at an earlier interval. Replace any worn out roller. Check if the small bearings at the end of each roller is perfect. Clean thoroughly all the rollers, dont use solvents. S. Mohan, Chenna, India

Grinding noise


There is usually a slide type button somewhere around the outside of the scanner and it usually has a lock & unlock sybol on it. You may want to make sure that it is slid totally in the unlock position because it could be getting caught inside once in a while if the button is say half way between lock and unlock... Hope this helps...

Why does the scanner hesitate when feeding the paper through the scanner and gives a scanned double image at the top of the page?


Is there a gear grinding noise associated with this? If so, call your local dealer for service. If not:Clean all the rollers you can reach with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Check for any obstructions in the paper path like torn paper, heavy toner buildup on guide plates or the edges of the scanning glass, or any paper guides obviously loose or out of place.
