Inproper connection between the scanner and the printer mainboard... Usually I'm changing the mainboard, sometimes the scanner assembly. Try to clean the contacts...

The scanner works fine but it doesn't automatically submit the info. Is there a setting somewhere that allows it to work this way?

scan "enable CR suffix" from your manual. You may also have to scan "enable LF suffix", but try it without first.

HP 4500...when trying to scan, or make a copy, screen displays "Scanner Failure" and will not work. Please help.

The "Scanner Failure" message appears when the scanner unit doesn't responds to the commands from the printer's processor. This is a major hardware failure - the scanner unit is effectively dead.
Replacing the failed scanner unit with a new one would cost more than a new All-in-One so either use the printer as is (just as a simple printer) or sell it for parts and get a new one.

When I try to make a copy the machine make a screeching noise and a blank copy comes out.

Leave the lid up when you make the copy and see if the light bar moves from left to right when copying. Check the scanner lock knob under the left hand side where the papers come out. Make sure it is not locked. Sometimes the scanners get stuck a lot and can cause blank copies. If it is stuck then you just have to remove the glass and then clean and lubricate the steel bar at the back that the whole unit rides back and forth on. Once that is doene it should work fine. Make sure to manually run the scanner bar out and back a few times so that you can get the whole rail lubricated. Do all this with the power turned off.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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.
