Question about Umax Astra 610P Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Repairable noise and lines?

Our scanner is pretty old, and I am almost positive it is out of warranty. It has gradually been scanning at worse and worse quality (printing dark lines through the image)then finally today it had so many lines you can't even hardly see the text. Also, it is making a loud buzzing type noise. Is this repairable? If so, how? Thank you.

Error code 5010


5010 is a scanner error, where the scanner either cannot find home position, or is not warmed up completely. Only cure is to replace the entire scanner assembly, if it's less than a year old it can be done under warranty, otherwise around $150 to $180.00

Mustek Scan Express A3 USB Scanner


I've had a similar problem with the streaks, lines and color bleeds appearing in the scan. Try uninstalling the all software and drivers for the scanner and reinstall. Worked for me. Have had to do this a couple of times since I've owned the scanner... about three to four years now.

Does the scanner show a red line to scan with?

If not, it sounds like the motor has failed (they have a motor inside to spin a mirror).

Unfortunately this is terminal for the scanner, but given that it is only 6 months old, it will hopefully be covered by your warranty.

Scanner makes knocking noise after starting


That normally means that the imaging mechanism has shifted off of the tracks that it moves on when it scans your document. This is usually something that is covered under warranty if you still have one. If not, you may have to pay to get it repaired or replaced. This is not something that is easily fixed if you aren't familiar with scanner components.

Priner doesn't want to scan, copy, or print


The only thing I can really suggest is that you reinstall all the software. If it persists you should get in touch with HP, use your warranty if valid. On uninstalling and installing the software: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=79488&lang=en&docname=bpu05205 Good luck
