Re: Squeaking

When the 'paper-dust' settles on the rubber rollers, they tend to squeak!. Blow/**** using a vaccum cleaner. Even after this if the squeaking persists, then apply 1 drop of a good lubricating oil, which is not very viscous. Watch oil is ideal. Ensure that only a drop is added just to lubricate. Excess oil can damage your documents and/or scanner. Ensure there is no bend in the roller. If there is a bend, you have to replace the roller.

Squeaking when it scans

If its scanning well and is out of warranty ignore it. If its under warranty get it replace. Quite often its not a problem, or just the high resolution stepper motor Operating.

Tray lifts to meet the rollers then drops back down. Error message 'No page was found in the feeder'

Clean the 'black dot' in the centre of the paper tray. There is an optical sensor under that. The tray will lift even without paper, but will go back immediately.
If the scanner stops after 3 pages, check disk space in your computer. If you are scanning in TIFF uncompressed, it takes lot of space. For color and Grey try JPG format, for mono TIFF G4 is the ideal option.

The belt inside my scanjet 4200c has come off. How do I reattach it? I have opened the scanner. It looks to be relatively easy but I don't know how to attach the belt to the motor etc


1 Lift the hatch on the feed tray and pull up the large green tab to the left of the roller. Remove any jammed or torn paper from under the roller and around the feed tray.
2 Pull the input feed tray out of the automatic document feeder. Grasp the feed tray with both hands and pull it straight out.
3 Check the interior of the automatic document feeder for jammed paper. Remove any jammed paper, then reinsert the feed tray into the automatic document feeder. Push down the feeder cover until you hear a click.

Po2 error

As per the manual, P02 error is reported when "The end of the document is not detected even though the document has been fed for a specific length after the front edge was detected". Remove the any document and rescan.

Multi feeder not working

Is the document tray raising? If that is okay, then clean the rubber rollers with a damp cloth. If worn out replace.

Blank Scan from HP Scanjet 5590 Flatbed Auto Feed

Scanning is possible in 'Text' mode and 'Picture' Mode. In text mode, which is simple 'Black & White", this can happen, particulalrly if the text is in color. Either you increase the contrast settings or scan the document in Grey/color and convert it to B&W using the software. By this you need not check if there is output!. ( I am assuming that otherwise the scanner is performing okay). File size in B&W is very small as compared to Grey/color.

How to enable Long Document mode?

As per the manual...

Press "New File" and "Count Only" buttons at the same time till they flash. Then hit the "New File" button to cycle through options. U10 is the normal/long doc mode. Change from 0 to 1 by hitting the "Count Only" button. Then to save and get out of User Mode hit the "Stop" button. The manual recommends only having long enabled when needed, it will slow down processing when using auto-detect length setting.

Error Code 009 Scanner out of paper

Right-click the VRS icon in the system tray. Select QC Modes and uncheck Hardware Errors. This will stop VRS from flashing the out of paper message.

(Also, ImageNow has it's own prompt when the scanner is empty. You can turn that off in the Scanning Profile on the Properties page.)
