Question about Bell & Howell Copiscan 8000 Spectrum Series Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

Bell & Howell Copiscan 8000 Scanner spins and doesn't take paper in auto position. Will slowly pull paper through with lever up in manual position but constantly multi-feeds. Have changed skimmer and separator rollers which would seem to be the problem area but that hasn't helped. Any ideas of what and/or where else to check? Thanks, Richard

Just check if the papers are sticky. Stapled papers even after removing the pins are held together at the point where the pin was! In the horizontal direction it can hold two papers together. Multiple papers can prevent loading of sheets. Clean the pickup  rollers with a damp cloth thoroughly, no solvents please.

Bell & Howell Copiscan Spectrum corner problems


It can be a nightmare to find out what is causing the dog ear page or folded page at the corner. Check your glass **** inside the scanner to make sure its seated in the scanner properly. The big one is the check the metal paper guides in the scanner paper path. If a guide is bend it will hook the paper and cause it to fold over.
