Florescent light died on my scanner, glows a

The florescent light died on my scanner, glows a little bit, but not enough to get a scan.

Where would I be able to find a replacement or repair? Or is this a symptom of some other part?

Any way to replace it with some other light source from another scanner if not?

The bulb is blown, it may function once in a while, but repairing may be too costly.
Your scanner has a 1200dpi resolution. There are similar, yet better scanenrs for less than $50.
You might consider an EPSON scanner/printer for under $50. Some EPSSON printers can also print CD labels, directly printing onto the CD!

Why does my rodeo diesel 2.8l 99 model when cold starts at accessories point & glow plug light stays on longer?


sounds as though the cylinder,s etc are a bit clogged up, try some diesel fuel addative,as with all diesel engines if they do not get long and regular journeys the glow plugs,injectors etc get clogged ,as the engine does not get hot enough to burn these deposits off on short stop start types of journey's . you are possibly looking at replacing the glow plugs but give the addative a try and if possible take for a long drive 2-3 hours at steady highish speed , ok to repeat the addative and long drive once more ,if no improvement will need to go into the repair shop to have the glow plugs seen to at the very least , good luck

My hp printer 6110 officejet all in one keep giving message scanner failure when i want to print something


Please make sure that the printer is connected to a wall outlet and not to a surge protector because surge protector distributes the total electric supply equally to each and every device connected to that surge protector. Printer might work and might not with a surge protector but it will always work fine with a wall outlet till the hardware of the printer and power chord, adapter are working fine.

some times scanner failure error comes if it is not getting enough power supply.So if it is connected to a surge protector then I will suggest you to disconnect it and connect it directly to a wall outlet.
Now scan or copy any document and see if something happens.

If not the do check while you press scan or copy button the scanner light is moving or not?
If scanner light is not moving then do a hard re-set.

Hard Re-Set :
- disconnect power chord from the back of the printer and then from wall outlet or surge protector.
- wait for 40 secondsand then connect the power adapter to wall outlet and then to the back of the printer. The try to scan or copy....still not working then check if the scanner bulb is glowing or not?

If scanner bulb is not glowing and if you dont hear any noise while you press scan or copy...then printer hardware has gone bad and you need to replace the printer

Both scanner and photo copier turn out 80% black with a very thin line at the side


Please check the Scanner lamp at the time you scan. If its not glowing or glowing very low, there is your problem.
This is a hardware issue, either go for Hardware repair. Or go for Printer Replacement or Upgrade from HP.

I have a 2.4L diesel Toyota Hilux. Its was -30 and the battery died. I have since jump started it and it drove fine (when the battery was dead and tried to start it in very cold, my husband thinks it could...


diesel engine have small starter helpers called glow plugs that heat the combustion air so that it can self ignite the diesel fuel
reasons for hard starting are
slow cranking speed---battery not charged enough or not big enough to do the job
injectors squirting and nit atomizing--- take the car to an accredited diesel pump/ injector repair shop for tip replacement and adjustment
the check engine light could be from faulty glow plugs
keep the fuel tank full ,especially in cold climate as there is hot return fuel from the injectors that causes condensation in the tank--water -- and that promotes the growth of a fungus which damages the pump and injectors
use diesel fuel condition on a regular basis to prevent that condition or keep the tank more that 3/4 full to stop condensation occuring

Epson Stylus CX5400 Scanner


If the lamp is not working their are two main possibilities. The first is that the lamp has failed and needs to be replaced. Buying a replacement MAY be dearer than buying a new machine - you will have to price the parts locally.

The second option is that the controller board for the scanner has gone. Again this could be an expensive part, but contact a local repair center or parts supplier to price the bits.

If you are successfull in getting the parts (you may buy a faulty machine off ebay with good scanner and bad printer to strip parts from) then this service manual will help you get to the parts you need:

HORIZONTAL Lines on faxed/scanned pages.


I've seen this before. Since the printer portion is working fine that points to the scanner mechanism as the culprit. There are two things I have seen cause this. 1) If the line is a perfect rectangle all the way to the edge of the page then the light bar itself is dying and there isn't much you can do to save the unit. Send it in for warranty repair if you have the option. 2) If the line is more like a skid mark like you mentioned, then the paper that is being scanned is not pressing up fully against the light bar. Not enough light is bouncing off the page and the scanner can't read it well. This can also be caused by a roller not feeding correctly and then bunching up the paper a little bit. I would check the rollers for wear or something being off center. This can sometimes be caused if the machine has ran a high volume or thick paper. I would really think the cause would be one of these two since you are getting the marks at odd intervals, if the intervals were regular it could *possibly* be the drum but as I stated before, with the print function working right, I doubt it.
