Question about Brother DCP-7020 All-In-One Laser Printer

Scanner arm hitches as it moves

My printer was pluged in a 220 volts surge and the power supply was blown off. I repaired it by changing only the fuse which was blown off and all was OK. But the problem I'm facing now is that, when I put the printer on , I saw a message on the LCD screem reading "Please Wait" which will last for as long as the printer is left on. the scannig arm does not move normally as it should making a cracking or grinding sound and I also noticed that the fan is not spinning as it should be thou the power is on .

Re: Scanner arm hitches as it moves

There is more to he fuse blowing that caused the problem. U may have also caused the control board to fail. Take it into a service rep to have it looked at .

Worrng fully supply 220 volt in xerox 7345 110v now this machine is showing error like 009-383,380,382 and after NVM reset one or two copy diagonal bar type print come out and then code is come -

The last time I looked at one of these power supplies I'm sure you had to move over a small sheet metal cover but putting 110volt onto a 220 volt power supply shouldn't cause a problem the other way probably would. However as you seam to get prints out of the machine I don't think you have a power supply problem.
Further investigation needed.
Good Luck.

110 volts, rated TV was plugged into 220 volts power supply. Now when it was plugged into an 110 volts supply its not getting on? What could be the causes? and please suggest solutions.

It probably fried the power supply in the TV unfortunately. If the electrical surge stopped there then it should just be a matter of swapping out the power supply. Provide a make and model of television and I will see if I can help find one with instructions on how to change it.

Sir, I got Epson stylus 480 printer and unfortunately in Pakistan voltage is 220v but i imported it from america where voltage is 120v so i directly turned it on and it started once on 220v and now not...

What you should have done before using your Epson stylus printer was to purchase a Voltage Converter able to convert 220 volt into 120 volt.

You probably "burned" out the printers electrical circuit because you let 220 volt directly into a device built for 120 volt.

If it is the other way around f.ex. connecting a 220 volt device into a 120 volt outlet it will not destroy the product. Only the product may not work as it is supposed to or it will be slower.

Here is a site with a voltage comparision chart, that can help you to choose a Voltage Converter for your purposes.

My hp printer 6110 officejet all in one keep giving message scanner failure when i want to print something

Please make sure that the printer is connected to a wall outlet and not to a surge protector because surge protector distributes the total electric supply equally to each and every device connected to that surge protector. Printer might work and might not with a surge protector but it will always work fine with a wall outlet till the hardware of the printer and power chord, adapter are working fine.

some times scanner failure error comes if it is not getting enough power supply.So if it is connected to a surge protector then I will suggest you to disconnect it and connect it directly to a wall outlet.
Now scan or copy any document and see if something happens.

If not the do check while you press scan or copy button the scanner light is moving or not?
If scanner light is not moving then do a hard re-set.

Hard Re-Set :
- disconnect power chord from the back of the printer and then from wall outlet or surge protector.
- wait for 40 secondsand then connect the power adapter to wall outlet and then to the back of the printer. The try to scan or copy....still not working then check if the scanner bulb is glowing or not?

If scanner bulb is not glowing and if you dont hear any noise while you press scan or copy...then printer hardware has gone bad and you need to replace the printer

Epson perfect 4990 color scanner

You can try to purchase a new power supply from the USA or similar that has 110v power. Problem is that maybe the power supply let some of the high current through to the main board in the machine and that may have fried too. If you can afford it, try the power supply option first - the scanner may just power up fine.
