    You are so right!
    Actually, Epson NZ was able to help me quite quickly. They said:
    'At the back of the scanner is a sliding tab that is used to lock the scanner for transportation'. [Somehow this tab had been moved to the lock position, probably when rearranging things on my desk!]

The clunking is the belt jthat moves the light is jumping the sprocket gear.
Solution - Unlock the scanner. About 1 inch below the right lid hinge near the USB jack is a fimmed piece of plastic. Slide this left or right to Lock/Unlock the scanner.

    - Unlock the scanner. About 1 inch below the right lid hinge near the
    USB jack is a finned piece of plastic. Slide this left or right to
    Lock/Unlock the scanner.

Normally clonking noises are caused by loose pipework.

As the valve closes the inertia in the water bangs the pipe against the wall.

For instance in heater radiator systems it can also cause a continuous banning noise when water under pressure is pumped through it, usually in sync with the rotation of the pump motor.

At start up,engine makes clonk noise ,second it starts,

The clunking is most likely the starter/flywheel issue. Loose starter, starter or started bendix damaged or flywheel cracked. The P0137 is a post O2 sensor voltage low. If the sensor has not been changed, probably the sensor has failed.

Make sure your bobbin is in proper and secure, it should click when you put it in. Also try putting a new needle in. Clanking noises are sometimes a bent needle.
