Re: scanning lamp

Lamp is busted, better check your date of purchase for warranty.

We know that having a printer serviced/fixed costs more than buying a new one, check out this link .

My mfp m1132 is showing error E8 and cant copy/scan. what do I do?

Juliet. Most likely the scanner lamp, or scanner control unit assembly is defective. If you're technically savvy, you could remove the scan glass and lube the shaft that the scan lamp assy slides on. Sometimes that will fix it. Otherwise, the whole top scan unit will need replacing. That could cost over $300 for the replacement.

Scanner not woking

If you can make copies but you cannot scan documents to folder or email then I would consult your resident IT person. If you are not able to make copies but the machine prints then you have a bad scan lamp. If you are not able to make copies or print and the scan lamp is as bright as can be then your laser unit is shot.

HP Officejet Pro L7680 All-In-One printer. copies come out black

Probably either the scan lamp or the sensor bar has failed. Do you see the scan lamp glowing under the cover when you try to scan a document? (Lift the edge of the cover slightly and watch the underside of the cover, you should see the reflection from a bright bar of light moving from one end of the original to the other. Do not look directly down into the light if it is on!)

IR 400 E220 in Starting Machine

these means that you have problem with scanning lamp or scanning section.

Open the document cover and turn ON the copier, see if the lamp will glow, if not, probably you need to change the scanning lamp, but if it glows and you still has the E220, remove copy glass and put the scanning lamp in home position ( to the left side ) - NORMALLY BEFORE REMOVING THE LAMP TURN THE COPIER OFF AND PULL THE POWER PLUG FROM THE POWER OUTLET!!!!!

Hope that helps!

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...

By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

My HP 7110 Officejet says ''scanner failure.'' It will not let me fax or copy. How do I fix this?

If you can remove the glass, you need to clean the lamp and mirrors in the scan assembly, this error happens after the lamp ages and dust gathers on the scan mirrors. It's very expensive if you can even find a new scan assembly.

Dose the scanning lamp come "ON" when you make a copy. If it will not come "ON" your scanning Lamp is blown and needs to be replaced. When the scanner lamp blows you will get blank copies..

Scanning problem

Possibly there is a key that locks the engine that moves the scanner lamp, and that key may be locking the engine, and when the scanner try to move the lamp, the locked engine overloads the circuit, and turn off the device. Search for that key, and unlock this, (if it´s really locked).
