Question about Epson Perfection 4180 Photo Flatbed Scanner

Awful noise My scanner scanned one page and made an awful noise at the end of the scan, like grinding or something. Now it will come on, but when I push the button to scan, it starts scanning and then immediately, the indicator light that is normally green starts flashing red.

Please try the following to resolve your issue:
1. Unplug the USB cable and the AC adapter from the back of the scanner.
2. Toggle the Transportation lock (the plastic switch at the back of the scanner) back and forth 5 times, ensuring that the lock is all the way in the unlock position.
3. Reconnect the USB cable and the AC adapter cable, and then try to scan.

The scanner works but makes a grinding noise that is getting worse


Normally Canon scanners work well for long time, Change the pickup rollers for every 250,000 pages and check other rollers for every 500,000 pages. In case you have been scanning documents with quite a good amount of dust, you may need to check at an earlier interval. Replace any worn out roller. Check if the small bearings at the end of each roller is perfect. Clean thoroughly all the rollers, dont use solvents. S. Mohan, Chenna, India

Grinding noise


The most common problem is that the pulley breaks, you might be able to see it through the glass. looks where the belt goes, and see if the pulley is broken.

also, some people forget to unlock the locking mechanism when the unit gets moved, the locking switch is on the side.

Datalogic QS6500BT barcode scanner and 2D codes


Usually some symbologies are disabled at default.

i think you need the manual and scan the barcode to enable it for scanning.

the links is:

https://easeofaccess.scanning.datalogic.com/public/marketlit/Send.aspx?file=R44-2816A

it's chapter 6-191 or page 279 in pdf.

you have to begin with scanning "Start" en end with scanning "END"

becarefull with printing this page and not the whole manual. there are 336 pages.

good luck

Grinding noise


There is usually a slide type button somewhere around the outside of the scanner and it usually has a lock & unlock sybol on it. You may want to make sure that it is slid totally in the unlock position because it could be getting caught inside once in a while if the button is say half way between lock and unlock... Hope this helps...

Why does the scanner hesitate when feeding the paper through the scanner and gives a scanned double image at the top of the page?


Is there a gear grinding noise associated with this? If so, call your local dealer for service. If not:Clean all the rollers you can reach with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Check for any obstructions in the paper path like torn paper, heavy toner buildup on guide plates or the edges of the scanning glass, or any paper guides obviously loose or out of place.
