Can i use the machine hp c5180 to scan document even if no ink?


Ria,

Please understand that the scanner and the printer have no connection. So, even if the printer is dead you can still scan. Yes, you will have problems when you want to print the scanned copy.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Black line in the middle of the output - scaned document


Hello,

A black line down a scanned page indicates a dirty scan glass. Lift the top of you scanner like you would putting a page or book down to scan. On the end of the scanner that has the document feeder you should see a thin piece of glass the is separate from the larger glass pane. This is the document feeder glass. Now check it over for a very small mark of ink or dirt. You can use regular glass cleaner to wipe this glass just spray it on a piece of cloth not the scanner then wipe. You may have to wipe and then try scanning several times if the ink or marker is died on. while you are cleaning you should also clean the main glass pane, it will make the scans clearer and crisper.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Canon DR-3080 CII scans only half or right side of document


Try all formats, Color, Grey & Black & white. If you have problem it could be the scan module. Check for loose contacts, but this is rare in a working machine.

How do I scan a document please?!


Hello,
you can a document using a scanner.
1. you have to find a SCANNER machine that is responsible in scanning the files you want to scan.
2. Then after you find a scanner, next thing to do is to place the document file in the scanner and make sure that your scanner is properly connected and turn on.
3. Click and run the software that is bundled with the scanner to scan the document and then you have to set the path where your scanned file is to be place.
4. Then after the scanning process finished then click the save button to save the scanned files.

Thanks

Error message code 2,140,0


I had a similar problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250 all-in-one, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were in low ink (almost without ink). I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it. Good luck!
