I have a Brother MFC 8440. The scan bar has stopped functioning the bar deos not move to scan the documents. It makes intermittant sounds but seems stuck in its resting place?

If the device was moved without the light bar being locked prior to moving, it is possible that the light bar was knocked out of alignment and it will not work. It is very important to lock the light bar prior to moving for that very reason. I would suggest you take the device to a qualified specialist to identify the issue.

HP Photosmart C4580 wont scan

It seems that scanner glass is not glowing or may be bulb are not moving properly.
you can try these thigs:
1)Turn ON the printer unplug the powe cable from the back of the unit; wait for 30secs; replug the power cable.
2) Try this to check teh funtionality of hardware Load letter or A4, unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  1. Press and hold the Cancel (c01235250.gif ) and the Start Copy Color buttons at the same time.
  2. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.
3) Now check if its copying or not?
It will work fine(if your printer scanner glass is fine)

You can also try scanning from computer(if installed)
the location of file would be=
c:\program files\hp\digital imaging\bin
here locate for file "hpqscnvw" hit it and try to scan
Best of luck

Will not let me scan documents

install the software first and then you will be able to scan its just that the scan options are not getting detected from the software on the computer that assigns the scanning options.

IF the software is installed then open hp solution centre and point to settings.Then point to scan settings and click on scan to setup and move all the items on the left to the right by selecting each one and pressing the right arrow button and click on ok and now check you will be able to scan

Cannot get scan bar to move

It sounds like the scan driver is malfunctioning. Reconnect both ends of your printer cable. If that does not work, uninstall all of the Lexmark software from your computer and reinstall.

If you are an advanced user, you could first try just removing the Lexmark printer from the Windows Device Manager.

Scanner & Copier doesn't work

If you get this error when trying to scan from the computer try starting the scan directly from the device and see if that works. If not, unplug and replug the USB cable(assuing you are connected to the computer via USB cable) and install the driver, if you get any plug and play prompts. Let me know if this doesn't work.
