Check the lock position underneath your lid-located in lower right corner. The lock on the transperancy unit tranportation needs to be unlocked (moved to the right).

Clean the glass surface with Iso propyl alcohol (Industrial grade is enough). Dont use any solvent. Just for immediate usage, you can use your aftershave and clean. Clen with a soft cloth.

SOURCE: 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.

Will not recognize 5th image on negative strip because 4 and 5 overlap (slight double exposure). How do I scan 5th image?


I inserted my negative holder in backwards on my Nikon 5000 35 mm scanner. Then I could get the last (5th) slide scanned. But I can not get the scanner to work on my new IMac because of no working driver. Silver Fast has no drivers for the Nikon 5000

HARMAN FL8385 CD CHANGER TRAY ALIGNMENT


We've all done it, or one of our youngsters do it for us... knock the multi disc tray out of sync with the drive gears.

With multi disc trays, the CD drive has to move out of the way during disc change and tray loading. Occasionally a disc jams, someone forces the tray movement, and you hear the GRIND, GRIND, GRIND of slipping gears.

Most designs have a switch-hit gear setup that's self correcting for small adjustments but occasionally the mechanism slips beyond self correcting.

Here's the process to open up and fix the tray alignment for Harman's FL8385 CD Changer.

HP OfficeJet 6110 (4 years old) makes short grinding noises during printing. Occasionally the printer stops and asks to have the door opened and the jam cleared. The problem is gradually getting worse....


Try first to clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the printhead. Either use a Q-tip dampened slightly, or small towel. Don't apply too much pressure though, it can come off and they are hard to put back.

Sharp AL-1340 Scanner hangs up, grinding sound, with E-7 code


The scanner rails will dry out. Try a drop of oil on the rod the scanner travels on. There are two bushings that slide along the rod/rail. 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...
