    scanner error

  • farmerbill Jan 29, 2008

    I checked for binding, everything moves freely. It will not stop at the end so the electronic stop is not working. How do I fix that ? I not sure how it is to stop there is no stop switch. Is there a photo eye ? How do it know when to stop. Is this a common problem with this model? Looks like I can get another used unit for $50 on ebay. The printer is noise but works fine. Total pages printed137 scaned 88 pages.

It is a combination fault. There is no sensor, the scanner reads the black shape on the under side of the glass pane.

What you need to do is adjust the metal earthing stop just rear of the motor by bending it with your finger. Then disturb all of the connections by unplugging the power, data and earth wires at both ends (apart from the motor power as it is soldered on at the motor end. It really comes down to trial and error, but i've just fixed mine using the steps above.

Hello, The scanner & photocopier were not working and the screen was just stuck on the "scanner bulb warming up". Then, after days of trouble shooting, it finally began making a noise,...

From what you described it sounds like you need to get the "scanner assembly" replaced.
The bulb is probably bad and won't come on to full power.
Not knowing what kind of printer you have, probably won't change the fix. If you can look at the event log you may be able to see an error code which could make it a definite scanner assembly replacement.
If you want to throw money at this unknown printer, get a tech to look at it and give you an estimate.

E42 is a scanner error, it can be caused by the scanner cables not being seated correctly. If you can get the right cover off, unplug, inspect and reseat the cables going to the scanner

Printer/scanner/photocopier. scanner not working. Any ideas?

Are you scanning to your computer? If you are getting an error during the transfer to your computer, check your firewall. I had a scanner (mine is a Panasonic) problem with the transfer to my computer. I corrected it by printing the properties of the scanner and found out the port number that the scanner used and opened the port in the firewall. Hope it helps.

Scanner & black pages

The black printing usualy occurs when there is a faillure in the light, since your light is working fine, there may be a problem in the imaging device inside(camera) or the reflector. There is nothing wrong with the cartridge.
