Top will not sit down properly to allow scanning of paper

Prevail Pro 705. Top of printer does not sit flat on left corner. Corner located over Power on button. Does not scan paper as it is not closed and therefore paper cannot feed through top feeder? Now have to scan one page at a time by laying in on flat survace under top cover. Takes too much time. How to fix top so it sits properly-p flat.

SOURCE: Epson R300 printing only in top left corner of page

Change the paper settings in the driver when you go to print. If you have it set to 10x15 it will only print a 10x15 patch in the corner.

Go to START, PRINTERS AND FAXES then right click on R300 and select PROPERTIES. Click PRINTING PREFERENCES and set the correct paper properties. Click OK all the way to desk top and the settings will be saved.

On the printer panel press ADVANCED, scroll down 3 times to PAPER SIZE and press OK. Select A4 and press OK.

SOURCE: Top Paper Feed Won't Work

Like a worn running shoes, the paper feed roller of the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) have lost it's traction and has to be replaced or cleaned. Paper just slids and doesn't picked up properly without that little push. Professional servicers use a cleaner specifically designed for rubber rollers. However, YOU CAN get extra miles on it by dabbing a Q-tip in warm water and cleaning the paper feed roller on the ADF. Like all eletrical devices, the unit has to be turned off and unplugged before working on it. Take all precationary measures and goodluck.

SOURCE: Printer won't stop jamming

sounds like your printer wants to form it's own three piece band(kidding here).

sounds like you rollers are dirty or have something on one or both of them..like tires on a slippery road, these need to be clean and dry.

SOURCE: Problem with scanning both from the auto feeder and from scanner glass

this is what HP has to say

This document applies to all HP product models. Issue When the product is turned on or in the middle of an operation, an unexpected noise occurs, such as clicking, thumping, or grinding. Blinking lights and error codes might accompany the noise. NOTE: Noises can be caused by a number of things. This document focuses on isolating, identifying, and resolving known causes of product noises. Solution Noises are subjective and can be difficult to describe. Some noises are normal to the operation of the product and might include the following:

  • The product might make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage moves around on the right or left side of the product while cleaning the ink cartridges. This is normal when a product is turned on, before and after printing, after a product has been on standby for some time, after replacing an ink cartridge, or in the middle of a large print job.
  • During a print job, the movement of rollers, gears, carriage, and paper (paper feed and ejection) creates some noise.
  • During a print job, if the product is printing in the fast or draft mode, the noise level might be higher than when using the best or normal mode.
  • At the end of the print job, a louder clicking noise occurs as the paper is pushed to the output tray.
  • At the end of a print job, a noise emanates from the left or right side of the product as the pens are capped. The product might try to do this a couple of times.
Abnormal noises are a symptom of a problem. The most accurate way to determine the origin of a noise is to isolate where it comes from and when it occurs. Use the following steps to try to isolate the noise issue. NOTE: Error codes might indicate the source of the noise. Make a note of any error code or blinking lights that appear. Step one: Check for loose or broken parts
  1. Raise the cover of the product.
  1. Check inside for loose or broken parts.
  2. If there are broken parts, the product needs to be serviced.
  3. Step two: Make sure that accessories are installed correctly
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Remove the power cord from the back of the product and unplug the power cord from the power source.
  3. Check any accessories (duplexer, envelope feeder, automatic document feeder (ADF)) to make sure each is installed and seated correctly.
  4. Plug the power cord into the back of the product and plug the power cord back into the power source.
  5. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  6. If the noise still persists, remove each accessory one at a time to try to determine if the noise is associated with a single accessory or a combination.
  7. If the noise stops when a specific accessory is removed, that part might need to be replaced. If possible, exchange the accessory with a known good one or a new one to determine if the noise is associated with the accessory. NOTE: If the product is fully functional with the accessory in place, the noise might be normal.
  8. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
Step three: Check connection with computer Turn off the computer to determine if the computer is the source of the noise. If the noise persists, proceed to Step four. If the noise stops when the computer is turned off, try to isolate any issues with connectivity:
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the product.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and from the back of the product.
  4. Wait a couple of minutes to allow static to be discharged.
  5. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and plug the power cord into the back of the product.
  6. Connect the product to a different USB port.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  9. If the noise persists, service the product.
Step four: Check for a paper jam Paper jams can prevent the internal components of the product from moving, which can create unusual noises.
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  3. Remove the rear access door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the product by pulling it out through the rear access door and then securely replace the rear access door.
    1. If a paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the product, raise the product cover, carefully remove the paper jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
    NOTE: Remove any paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the product when removing a jam from the front of the product.
    1. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product.
    2. Reload the paper in the paper tray.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. Try to print. If a jam is cleared and the product prints, but the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step five: Make sure that the carriage moves freely
    1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the product.

    1. Make sure that the ink cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to prevent it from moving.
    2. Close the product cover and reconnect the power cord.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step six: Plug the product into a wall outlet
    If the product is plugged into an uninterruptible power supply, that source might make a beeping or whistling noise.
    1. Unplug the power cord from any power strips or surge protectors.
    2. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step. If the noise stops when plugged directly into a wall outlet, the power strip or surge protector might not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product and might need to be replaced.
    Step eight: Service the product If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

    SOURCE: Vertical lines when scanning

    Clean the glass. Not the full glass where you lay a page, but the thin strip of glass that the paper moves past when you use the ADF. There is probably a small dot of ink or dirt causing the lines.

    What do neet to do to get the scanner on my all-in-one printer to be recoginzed


    This assumes you have installed the software from the HP SW install disc.

    Go to search programs and files (Lower Left hand Corner) and type in services.msc. Expand the column to the right by dragging the seperator at the top. Scroll down to Remote Procedure Call RPC LOCATOR. Double click it. Set to delayed start. Restart Windows.

    The delayed start is necessary to allow the OS to boot before the scan service loads.

    Lexmark previl pro 705 - paper jams or it says it is jammed when it is not also says paper tray removed when it is not


    Try to remove the sheets of paper from your printer. Unplug and re-plug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, load some paper but don't overload. Try to print again. If error continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

    How can I scan to email. I can scan and reprint plus I can scan to memory card


    To use this feature in Windows, a destination must be programmed in the scan setup before scanning to a destination. See Set up the product Scan To button.

    Load the originals that are to be scanned face-up in the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray, with the top of the document forward, and adjust the media guides.

    Lift the flatbed scanner lid and load the original that is to be scanned face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of the document located in the lower-right corner of the glass. Gently close the lid.

    On the product control panel, press Scan To.
    Use the arrow buttons to select a file destination.
    Press Start Scan or OK to scan the document to a file.

    Scanning to e-mail is supported by any e-mail program that supports the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) protocol. Many versions of popular e-mail programs seem to be MAPI-compliant. See the support information for your e-mail program to determine whether or not it is MAPI-compliant.

    Paper jam on top tray, can't find any jam


    On that machine the hinge in the left corner for the scan assembly breaks and keeps the lid from shutting properly. The hinge is # LP2403001. Otherwise shine a light up the paper path from below and see if there's a paper scrap inside.
