I have had good luck fixing that problem by opening up the scanner and cleaning the rails with alcohol then very lightly lubricating them.

Empty carriage stuck in my HP 7500A printer

Hello,Lester Makang
Your carriage got stuck in service station,is there any noise coming from the right side of printer then there will be broken gear.
Power on your printer,after you got carriage jam error open cartridge access door and wait 5 second when you see that gears trying to move,use your hand to pull your carriage to left side.Don't use much force.If your carriage got free then install your print head and cartridges.If this will happen again then take it to service center they will change the service station or broken gear but the cost goes much high.

For months of non use, the bar that carries the light does not move (stuck up) when switched on.

You may need to open the scanner and re-lubricate the steel bars using a lubricant oil. It sounds like the scanner is seized.

Scan head is stuck in path and will not reset

I had the same problem. I disconnected the scanner from the PC. restarted my computer. Shook my scanner a little bit while PC was rebooting (or maybe a little slap) and when PC was rebooted), i plugged my scanner back and it recalibrated automatically.

The scanner is not scanning in photo scan mode and

that's hardware related problem, you need to open the machine and lubricate all moving parts specially in bulb image receiver side.

Epson perfection 2400 photo scanner stuck with flashing red light

You may have accidently pushed the LOCK button - this button is used to LOCK the carriage into place when moving the scanner to another location or shipping it.

Check for a button and the picture of a LOCK, it is usually at the back of the scanner, you can push it left or right, and you have an open lock and a closed lock picture under it. Make sure you didn't accidently push it to the LOCK position when holding the scanner - that loud sound means your carriage is locked and cannot move - once you set the button to UNLOCK this should solve your problem.

Hp scanjet 3200 stuck!!

I would say the most likely cause of the issue is either that the scanner is no longer functioning or that it is experiencing power issues. Make sure that the scanner is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. The scanner does not share power well and pulls it in large amounts - when it can't get it it throws little power fits and sometimes will not turn on at all. Try another wall outlet and see if you can get it to power on and then do a scan to see if the light goes on.

If not it may be a bad scanner and then I would try and call hp and see if they have any upgrade units available - usually refurbished but they come with a 1 yr warranty and are significantly cheaper than buying a new unit from the store. They will also take your unit and pay to have it returned to go to an environmental recycling facility.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck

hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.
