Clicking Sound when scanning

My scanner scans from the start position to the end, by the hinge, but when it gets there the scanning bar stops and a rapid clicking sound comes from it; the scanning bar does not move and the scan is not transmitted to the PC. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the drive belt is missing a cog. With the curent price of scanners it most likely would be cheaper to replace it

When I plug in the scanner it starts to scan straight away before I've pressed any buttons on put anything on the bed to scan! The laser then gets stuck at the end and just keeps clicking away


It is normal for this scanner to briefly "scan" when it is plugged in. However, the moving lens shouldn't go all the way down to the back end. It sounds like the scanner is physically damaged, most likely the belt slipped several cogs and now the scanning mechanism is out of alignment. Look into warranty service for the unit.

Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound


I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

Light bar stops too soon


I assume you are using this with a computer. One thing comes to mind that relates to software. You should be able to do a preview scan of the whole scanner bed, then move the frame to the area you want to scan only, sort of like cropping the picture. If those crop borders are set to less than the whole document, you will get this kind of scan.

Now if that isn't the problem, the scanner likely has a electronic issue unless the scanner has had a nasty fall. If you want to really explore deep and don't mind if it doesn't work afterwards, turn the scanner off and unplug the power. Open it up just enough to access the optical unit and see if it will move the entire length of the scanner without binding where you experience the end of the scan. Go rather slowly and gently so you don't strip the toothed belt if it has one. You will feel a wierd sensation and some resistance as you move it along which has to do with the stepper motor and that's normal. If that works, it's likely it failed on it's own. If it binds where the scan ends, you'll have to investigate whether it's due to a rusty rail (hope not!) or some other obstruction.

Good luck!

The printer is making a gear clicking sound.


I had exactly the same problem with my OfficeJet 6110 as reported above (i.e. the scan head not knowing where the end-stop is). This is how to fix it (this method worked for me) 1) Lift up the scanner/copier hinged lid. Around the edge of the scan glass are 4 Torx screws. Undo all four screws. 2) Carefully prise the control panel faceplate off. The buttons underneath are on a single panel. Slide this to the left and lift off. 3) Jiggle the lid of the scanner to get it off the main body of the printer. 4) Locate the scan engine motor (top right corner) and remove the two motor retaining screws (one on the left of the motor, the other on the right). 5) Lift out the entire mechanism (rod, drive belt, scan head) and turn over. 6) Thoroughly clean all glass and mirrored areas of the scan head. Also clean the scan lamp on the top of the scan head. Clean the tray inside the scanner (where the scan head travels back and forth). Also clean the inside and outside of the scanner glass pane itself. 7) Refit all parts, using the technique described above, in reverse order. 8) Switch on printer. It should now work OK. Hope this helps, guys.

Continually scanning


Make sure the lock switch is in the unlocked position. The lock switch is on the bottom of the scanner. It sounds like something is preventing the scanning bar from getting to the home position. If the scanner was somehow locked with the scanning head being out of the home position, then the result would be what you describe.

Canon MX310 Scanner Error


The scanner mechanism is locked....there should be a bar or button that slides to lock/unlock. Probably a picture of a lock.....this prevents damage while transporting the device....

Scanner bar seems stuck


You will need a torx driver and or phillips to take it apart. Just common sense and patience will get that accomplished. What you want to do then is find the cables that run from the scanner to the circuit boards, disconnect them and reconnect them. Ribbon cables need to be gently removed and be sure when replacing them you don't get any folds in them.
If the that doesn't work, then most likely the board or scan motor have failed. You may also want to look in the scanner and see if the home position sensor, which would be a U shaped sensor has popped out. The clicking is from the scan head trying to find the home ( start) position sensor and not finding it. When it works correctly it drives back until a little flag passes between the light and the photo sensor within that home sensor. Once the light is broken the scan motor shuts off and positions the lamp properly.
