Scanner seems to get stuck at the end of certain scans

I am able to scan fine for ten or eleven times and then for no apparent reason, as the light bit (don't know what its called) is returning to the top of the image, it stops and starts clicking, i can't turn off the power other than to pull out the power supply at the back. When i start up again, it does the same thing! Help!!!

The gears are grinding, it sounds like. That happens when they slip. It's a sign of age, typically. Unfortunately, that usually means it's time to get it repaired by a pro or replace it.

Check the scanning unit by copying something on the platen. If this does not work, you have a defective scanning system. If it does work, check connections between the PC and the MX870.
Please let me know if this works. If not we can investigate further. Thanks.

Hello, The scanner & photocopier were not working and the screen was just stuck on the "scanner bulb warming up". Then, after days of trouble shooting, it finally began making a noise,...

From what you described it sounds like you need to get the "scanner assembly" replaced.
The bulb is probably bad and won't come on to full power.
Not knowing what kind of printer you have, probably won't change the fix. If you can look at the event log you may be able to see an error code which could make it a definite scanner assembly replacement.
If you want to throw money at this unknown printer, get a tech to look at it and give you an estimate.

Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound

I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

My scanner/faxer won't scan for my mfc-490cw brother product. I always have to reset it and push 20 buttons so I don't remember how to do it. Can you help?

I have the same problem. It was working fine, then after not using it for a few weeks, all the sudden I couldn't scan. I'm hooked up wirelessly through my router. I can initiate a scan both from my PC and from the scanner itself, when initated from the scanner my PC responds and shows the progress bar, and the scanner actually scans. However for some reason no data is being sent back to the PC. And after a few minutes I get an error message saying that communication was lost (or something like that) error TW007. Yesterday I called into brother support and was on the phone for an hour and a half. they walked me through verifying connectivity, uninstalling and reinstalling the software and drivers, but to no avail. In the end we made no progress. I can print without a problem, and fax and photocopy. But for some reason it seems that the scanner is not transmitting the information back to the computer, even through the connection was established and the computer is waiting for the data.

HP 5510 Scanner/Copier/Fax Stuck

I had the same problems some months ago. I only solved it when I deleted the printer settings from my computer and reinstalled the software, making sure that I installed all the components from the CD. Also make sure that the printer is on fax default setting when you are using it as fax. You can check this by going to My Computer then Control Panel, then choose Printers and Other Hardware then choose Printers and Faxes. You can then set as default hp Officejet 5500 series fax. Hope these suggestions help.

Hello, I have just acquired a second hand Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400. The utility software works fine. However, when switching it on, the green indicator light by the on-off switch does not...

All the comments I've seen made regarding similar symptoms to your were related to the setup of the device. Apparently the device is very finicky and I have heard many people say that the installation process for the scanner has caused a lot of people issues.

From website:
  • Dimage Scan must be executed before turning on the scanner for the first time.
I suspect that the device won't be properly recognised by the system without the software already being installed and configured before the device is attached. I would remove the device, uninstall any trace of it from your system, and try again with a fresh install.
