Panini scanner gives error but no details about what is wrong


Hello. The thing you should do first is, turn off the computer and the scanner. Now you need to do is to disconnect the Panini scanner from the computer itself. Then turn on the computer and uninstall the Panini program from the computer. When your done doing all that, reinstall the installtion program for the Panini scanner, then reconnect the scanner back onto the computer, then turn on the scanner and give it a testrun and see what happens. Good Luck!

Scanner error 5 appears. Have done all the recommended things in the manual plus other things like turning everything off for the night, rebooting computer, etc. numerous times.


Sorry but I have a bad news. Scanner error xx means that the scanner lamp is not able to move and if it does it cannot go all the way by either something blocking it or a gear worn. In some cases it does like a humming or clicking noise. The printer need service, probably a new scanner. You can try an NV RAM: Turn it off and press and hold the down arrow and cancel. Then turn it on and wait for the message ''permanent storage init'' then release the keys and will get back to ready. If the error persist contact HP they are giving 2 years warranty from the purchase date if that message appear. Good Luck

Scanner makes a horrible noise until it goes into error state


Sounds like the scanner portion of your all-in-one is bad, best thing to do if its still under warranty is to call HP Tech Support and have them verify the issue: 800-474-6836

If its not under warranty then the machine is done.

Hp officejet d145 carriage error & scanner failure


Re carriage error - suggest cleaning the encoder strip. this is the plastic strip running parallel to the drive belt but about 1 inch above it. They frequently become covered with ink spray and so are impossble to read by the carriage position detector.

Beware.

Only use cold water and be very gentle. also make sure you dry the strip thoroughly before switching the machine back on.

Re scanner problem 2 possibilities.
(1) make sure printer power cable is connected directly into wall socket not through an extension cable. This can reduce the voltage getting through to the scanner lamp.

(2) if that don,t work then I suggest you take the scanner apart and clean the reference strip. this is a white bar on the scanner glass which tells the machine what the light level is. This can be a bit tricky so if you've never done it before consult someone who has or get back in touch with me. HP don't want you to do this but it sometimes works.

Problem with an CanoScan 8400F, just started 2 days ago. I have tried all the usual things pwr off, usb, uninstalled driver, downloaded latest, get the same error each time. Code: 2,178,0. I even hooked...


Try this:

Open the CanoScan Toolbox.
Click the Save option.
Put a check in the box that states "Display the Scanner Driver".
Click Scan.
Click the Advanced Mode tab.
Make sure Select Source is set to "Platen".
Click the Preview button at the top left.
If the error still occurs, then most likely it will be a service issue.

One thing to check...see if the inside lamp illuminates when you turn the scanner on using the power button at the back left side of the scanner. If you get no light, then as mentioned before, then it will most likely be a service error.

Error message


Unfortunately, if an HP scanner quits functioning, the whole unit is dead. You may want to unplug the printer from its power source and USB cable for about 5 minutes, plug them all back in and then retry. Sometimes, a scanner job can get stuck in the spooler and cause the whole thing to stop working until the job is done (even though there isn't a job to do). I had this issue once and this worked.
