My HP scanner in my all in one wont work

The scanner in my HP fax/copy/print/scan machine does not work. Faults when initialising. It sounds like the reader is trying to return home, but when it gets there, the belt starts to jump and it fails to initialise properly. It then faults out.

Can anyone help me revive my old machine?

Thanks, ad.

I called HP and they told me that the reset for this is unplugging the power cord from both ends and waiting for a count of 60. At first this worked but each time the power goes out in our home, the next time I turn it ion, it does this and tells me there is a scanner error after trying to initialize. Keeps running back and forth somewhere inside and not clicking in. Unplugging and counting no longer work. One day I fooled with it all day and it finally stopped. Now power went out again and it's happening all over again! Very frustrating. Can anyone help?

Testimonial: "Thanks Desi6, I have unplugged the unit many times, but it still does it. Whatever tells the reader that it is in the correct position is not working."

When I receive a fax, it prints out perfectly. When I make a copy or scan to fax/email, the page has multiple black lines running down the length of the page. I have recently replaced the drum and the...


As the fax receives and prints incoming faxes ok then the print engine is working ok. the fact that the problem arises when copying or scanning indicates the problem is with the scanner or software that controls the scanner.
First clean both scanner glasses and the white area (white reference) under the doc feeder. When you are happy all is clean, follow the following instructions:
Press menu, * 2864 within 3 seconds. the display will show "Maintenance"
now press 55. The scanner will initialise and go back to "Maintenance"
now press 99 and the machine will go back to the default screen showing date and time.
Now do a copy. if you still have the lines or its all black then you will need a new contact image sensor. If all is well then that was a good cheap repair.

I can't get my HP potosmart C6180 ALL IN ONE PRINTER TO SCAN/COPY OR FAX WITHOUT GETTING A SCANNER FAILURE MESSAGE SAYING UNABLE TO SCAN,COPY OR SEND A FAX


Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg

I have an HP laserjet m2727 mfp series 4 in 1 multipurpose that can only print and recieve fax. What would be the problem? Please help me.


The detail isnt clear.

But if your machine doesnt do copies, scan or send faxes it would seem that ther is a problem with the scanner unit on your machine, Lift the ADF unit (as if you wer to do a copy from the glass) keep the lid open so you can see the scan unit, do a copy and check if the scanner unit moves and check if the bulb is burning.

These machines are notorius for dodgy formatter boards.

But i would start with checking the scanner unit.

Printer will only print, not copy fax or scan


Hi,
It is possiblethat the all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work with Vista, after some update or other. You did the right thing by uninstalling and reinstalling. Make sure you have the correct driver from the HP site..

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C6180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Switch the unit. let it rest for half an hour. While it is resting check the manual for any 'faults' list. Look for a 'reset' command - may be mean pressing several buttons while the machine is off and then with the buttons still pressed switch on the machine[you may need two hands and a nose or three hands for this ;-)] If still out of luck go to places for further info HP technical support team or www,fixyourownprinter.com
