E-studio 550 says to close saddle stich. What is the saddle stich?

This is on your finisher it is a accessory that someone had to purchase with the copier. Saddle stitch is how you make books and the staples go a certain way, it is a fancy stapler device that has a door to remove jams an d such. on that access door is a hidden microswitch that tells the copier if its safe to run paper through there or not. If posted on Aug 7 you either found out by exploring, had a service call to correct it or disconnected a really expensive finisher from your copier..... ~~~~> SC

How to open and replace the ink cartridge from my 6500a plus

Simple, turn on your HP OJ 6500A printer and open top cover...carriage should move to cartridge access position. If not, then the service station may be in the way or the PRINTHEAD assembly is not properly locked down causing an error condition. Power supply could also cause this kind of failure.

For information on North American ink refill services (i.e. HP920 and HP920XL ink cartridges) at a major retailer near you (should you wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem resolutions or advanced HP Officejet 6500, 6500A, 6500A Plus, 7000 and 7500A printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411:

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?

Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

During scanning I am hearning a knocking sounds and after the carriage finishes it's path ; th screen show half image

Knocking -- whether it comes from an automobile or a finely tuned scanner -- never good.

It sounds like an obstruction is preventing the scanner from moving fully across.

You can test this by repeating the scan but keeping the lid up. Please don't look directly at the bright light... but see if you can observe the movement from watching the edge of the path.

Other than that... see if you can make the scanner completely level.

It could be as simple as replacing a belt that is slipping, but you might call HP if this scanner is very new.... you might be eligible for a warranty replacement.

Looks like things have got a bit mixed up with the canon software. Try this:-

1) Un-install the camera.
2) Un-install the scanner.
3) Re-start the PC.
4) Re-install the scanner.

I am looking for instructions on this product.

Step 1: Open the scanner lid and remove the Transparent Materials Adapter (TMA).
Step 2: Place your slides or negatives into the appropriate template. Follow the orientation indicated by the icons on the template.
Step 3: Tip: If you are scanning fewer than the maximum number of negatives with the TMA, cover the empty spaces with the provided light shields to avoid letting any extra light in
Step 4: Place the template on the scanner glass, aligning the arrow on the template with the indicated mark on the scanner bed.
Step 5: Close the scanner lid and press the Scan Film button (or select the Scan Film option if you're using the HP Solution Center application on your PC).
Step 6: In the Scanning from dialog box, click Change Settings.
Step 7: Under Scan Shortcut Settings, select your Scan Type (either Negatives (TMA) or Slides or Positives (TMA)).
Step 8: Under Scan To select Save to file. Then click Scan.
Step 9: Under the Save Location dialog box, click Browse and enter the destination folder of your choice. Click OK and follow any on-screen instructions to finish scanning. The scan will be sent to the destination folder you selected. s.gif s.gif

Camera B error for crystal XL 40

You are right, it is very likely!. These type of scanners either use multiple cameras or use multiple mirrors to break a segment into a focussable area and do electronic stitching. (Electronic stitching is another painful area, the scanner has to 'create' a true image removing duplicate pixels). Also with Lens there is focal length aberration. Please note even the brochure carries the statement, "Torsion stabilised" suggesting that it is succeptible for misalignment. The mirrors are kept in position by rubber pads and tiny springs, but rubber pads being sensitive atmospheric variations, there can be focussing issues. Unfortunately you cant even kick the scanner accidentally or on purpose!
