It finally just started working a few days later. I don't know what fixed it. Maybe Windows Vista just finally found the drivers?

The precedent model was using the same cable as the keyboard, the new one is comming with his own cable. I had exactly the same problem when I tried to change the scanner only. I had to use the new cable.

If it was ok with your former workstation then It must be have something to do with your new workstation, check out carefully the port that connected to the scanner.

Epson 610 Workforce Printer Error; Light Bar won't reset

Sound like the scanner is the issue, is it under warranty? OR the Scanner may be locked, check for the scanner release device unlock it,.

The scanner won't move. I tried the lock button and it is not locked. Light comes on and paper goes through but scanner doesn't move.

if the scanner is not locked, you can try pressing #*C* then enter 14 and press start, if it is not resolving your problem you need to replace the carriage motor mcu pwb and the power supply pwb respectively.

When I try to make a copy the machine make a screeching noise and a blank copy comes out.

Leave the lid up when you make the copy and see if the light bar moves from left to right when copying. Check the scanner lock knob under the left hand side where the papers come out. Make sure it is not locked. Sometimes the scanners get stuck a lot and can cause blank copies. If it is stuck then you just have to remove the glass and then clean and lubricate the steel bar at the back that the whole unit rides back and forth on. Once that is doene it should work fine. Make sure to manually run the scanner bar out and back a few times so that you can get the whole rail lubricated. Do all this with the power turned off.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Scanner will not unlock

My X5150 did the same thing even after unlocking. I finally took the top part off (you'll have to remove two small screws on the top back under the scanner cover and then kind of pry the top loose) and found that the belt had came loose from the scanner bar. I had to push it back into the little slot on the end of the bar. Once I did this, it works perfectly with no errors.

Scanner bar will not move to scan the paper to be copied.

a piece of plastic locks your scanner in place, it is under the scanner up above where the copies come out. It turns 90 degrees.
Maybe some one turned and locked it.
Good luck

Cannot get the datalogic qs6000 to scan 39 or 128 barcode

Sounds like you need an updated driver for your POS scanner.

Other than that, try checking the scanners setting your software and make sure it is set for 39 and 128 bar codes. There is usually a setting that will specify what codes the scanner is going to read.

You can always shoot an email over to the datalogic guys and see if they have any more input on the situation.

Scanner making clicking noise

I just got that scanner back, L1 error code on a Sharp copier. Means the scanner can't move quick enough to satisfy the specs.. Removed the lock, not needed. Oiled the bar, scanner works ok now. Will look for Triflon lubricant, my favorite. Will check with local repair shop for recommended lubes. That light sensor switch is not necessarily on your unit, but I see them on a lot of machines. Sometimes it's just a little tab or button, hard to find. Check the freedom of your scanner bar. Temporarily loosen the drive if you can. The bar must move freely.

Continually scanning

Make sure the lock switch is in the unlocked position. The lock switch is on the bottom of the scanner. It sounds like something is preventing the scanning bar from getting to the home position. If the scanner was somehow locked with the scanning head being out of the home position, then the result would be what you describe.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck

hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.

Makes grinding noises, refuses to scan; WinXP

take a look on the underside of the scanner. there may be a switch that goes from lock to unlock. try to move it to lock and back into unlock. this lock is usually used to lock the bar from moving during shipping. if this got moved back to lock or bumped while you had it turned over, the scanner will not allow the bar to move.. try this first.
