The problem can be either of this two 1)the bulb is gone weak. 2)the motor which moves the bulb is gone weak.
and the third and the final thing its very difficult to to manually in this case still have a look. as the rays from the bulb passes from a lens that makes a proper ray.that should be very perfect but if you have removed the bulb and reinserted that that allignment of the passing ray will have moved from its orignal position.

I have connected the TMA to my hp scanjet and I have put a slide in it, but when I scan it, all I get is a scan of the whole glass and the slide is black.


When scanning slides and negatives the scanner lid lights up so light passes through the slides and negatives and the image is picked up by the sensor.
If the image of the whole glass is black then most likely the lamp in the lid is faulty.

With the scanner you should have received a cd "HP Scanjet 4800 Series HP IMage Zone Software. Mine is version 5.3 for Windows/8.4 for Mac OS v 10.2.

I WANT TO KNOW THE MEAN OF ''ERROR 06'' IN HP SCANJET 8270 AND THE POSIBLE SOLUTIONS... THANKS


If LCD displays Error 06 or Error 09 , the TMA might require service
Press SCAN PICTUREc00068011.jpg button once (see Figure 3 above). The TMA lamp should turn on (see Figure 4 above). If pressed a second time, the TMA lamp turns off (if TMA is detected). NOTE: The scanner carriage lamp should be off when the TMA lamp is on and should be on when the TMA lamp is off. The only time the TMA could not be detected is if the accessory cable is not plugged into scanner

EPSON Perfection 4490 - Ireflective media scans, film doesn't


There are two lamps with this model. One in the base for reflective and one in the lid for negatives and slides. If the base one is going out then it will be trying to use the one in the lid. You must remove the white document mat from underneath the lid to expose this lamp so it can scan your negatives.

Where do i put the negative to scan on hp g3010 scanner


On the lid there are thin plastic rails that frame two 35mm Negatives. Place the film in that holder, framing what you wish.

Check HP's site for the owners manual for advanced settings for your specific model to get the best results from your Negative or as HP calls it Transparent Materials Adapter (TMA)

Let us know
Good luck

BROTHER MFC-8840D "Check Scan Lock" error message


I had the same problem. It means the scanner lamp is in the park position and is stuck. You need to lean the printer away from the sheet feed side and bump it on the side. This may fix it. If it doesn't turn off the power and remove the two screws that hold the scanner lid on. Then remover the other 6 screws located under the lid on the left side while the lid is hanging from lid open sensor cable be carefull not to drop the lid, break the cable or the glass bed. After removing the base screws you can set the lid on the scanner again while you lift the scanner bed exposing the scan lamp mechanism. Push it a few inches in the machine and close the lid. You can do a test by powering the unit on and hold the lid open sensor button located on the bottom left of the lid. The system should initialize and bring the scan lamp back to the proper position. Turn off replace all screws and your done. If it doesn't work the first time push the scanner lamp farther into the scanning area and repeat. Good Luck
