Re: scanner

Check and clean the exit sensor.
You will find then in the middle behind the exit roller in the paper exit area.
Normaly it is unimpossible to see this sensor because the roller axle is in front of them.
It is the same sensor type like the other sensors with an sender/receiver an a reflector foil.
Helpfull to clean will be a q-tips or a small brush.

I just installed my scanner and as soon as it was plugged in both scan and PDF lights are blinking red and when I try to scn it says there is a paper jam but there isn't. What do I do

The scanner/printer is detecting a jam and even the smallest piece of paper will stop the print heads from moving. check again along the corners and paper path and am sure you will see a little piece of paper caught somewhere torn from a larger jammed piece some time in the past. Carefully remove it and reset the printer/scanner.

Once i powered the avision 220 on, The moniter shows E and 7


When you first turn the scanner on, the READY light will blink, indicating that the diagnostics are in progress. Observe
the front panel Error LED (Red) closely. In a short time, the Error LED indicates the results of the offline diagnostics as
explained below.

Ready LED(Green) is off and Error LED(Red) indicates 7, the error indication is"Face down light check failure".

Followings are the solution for the above problem:

1. CCFL is on? Yes. CCD error, Optical assembly is to be replaced.
2. CCFL is on? No. Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced.
3. CCFL is on? Yes. Issue resolved.
4. If the CCFL is still off, then CCFL is to be replaced.

Hope the above information is helpful.

Please revert if you have any doubt.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.

Xerox Documate 252, just quit working

The flashing green light has the following meaning:

• Blinking green: indicates the scanner is waking up from power
saving and preparing to scan.
• Steady green: indicates the scanner is ready to scan.

How to Adjust the Power Save Settings for the DocuMate 252
1. Right-click on the One Touch icon and choose Show
Hardware from the pop-up menu.
You can also click the scanner icon at the top of the One Touch
Button Panel.
If the Hardware View of the panel is open you can also right-
click on the DM252 icon.
The Hardware Properties dialog box opens and shows
information about your Xerox DocuMate 252 scanner.
2. Click the Properties button.
Your scanner has a built-in power saving feature that is set to
power down after 15 minutes of idle time. You can change the
time before the scanner powers down, from 1 minute to a
maximum of 3 hours.
3. Click the arrows for the Lamp timeout setting and choose a
time setting.
To return the scanner to its factory settings, click Reset Device.
4. Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog box.

Let me know if this solves the problem and thank you, Binary Bob

Red Light

This scanner has a paper detection sensor at the eject rollers where the paper comes out. Its a reflective device that can be fooled by paper dust buildup. Look in the gap where the paper is fed out, in the center you will find a little reflective patch facing up. Use a blower bulb or GENTLE puff of canned air, followed by a damp q-tip. There are similar sensors in the vertical transport that can give the same error. Don't overdo the canned air. It doesn't remove dust so much as just re-arrange it, usually to somewhere harder to reach. I don't keep it in my toolbox, and I do this for a living. Blower bulbs are much easier to control.

Minolta Dimage multi pro

Initially, I get a green flashing light when unit turned on, but after a minute or so, it turns to a red flashing light. It will take in the film tray only when blinking red, not when blinking green. My iMac has a hard time seeing the scanner, keep getting "scanner not found" messages. I have to go to system profiler and have it refresh and then it finds it, then the scanner software sees it too. But I have been unable to one preview out of it, says LED error and that's it. Using 10.4.10 on an iMac 20" with 2.5gb of RAM, using Pshop CS2 or going through Minolta Driver of OSX I got off of VersionTracker. I did remove the screw for transport right away. Will feed in 35mm tray with red blinking light, will not feed in 120 tray except partially with red blinking light, and only a couple times out of maybe ten tries.

Ready/Error Light

IT have just been down to look at our scanner & cleaned the sensor which is in between the rollers just where the paper flits out at the bottom - we now have a green light! So look for that sensor.
