SOURCE: HP 5510 Scanner/Copier/Fax Stuck

I had the same problems some months ago. I only solved it when I deleted the printer settings from my computer and reinstalled the software, making sure that I installed all the components from the CD. Also make sure that the printer is on fax default setting when you are using it as fax. You can check this by going to My Computer then Control Panel, then choose Printers and Other Hardware then choose Printers and Faxes. You can then set as default hp Officejet 5500 series fax. Hope these suggestions help.

SOURCE: Scanner bar will not move to scan the paper to be copied.

a piece of plastic locks your scanner in place, it is under the scanner up above where the copies come out. It turns 90 degrees.
Maybe some one turned and locked it.
Good luck

Toshiba estudio 162 e-studio 162 L1 L1-00 Error Code



L1 or L1-00 indicates Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.

How do you open case to clean inside of glass


Lock the carriage first! Remove the two medium-sized Phillips screws under the hinge and the small one over the small plastic cover plate. Remove that cover plate. Slide the top tray (glass and cover) off the frame by pulling laterally in the direction of the hinge. It will snap out if you work on it. Clean the glass. Slide tray back in and seat it securely. Put the large screws in to hold the carriage. You won't be able to screw them in if the cover isn't seated right. Now make sure the 5-conductor ribbon cable that is under the small plastic cover plate gets stuck back in the socket. You just push it into the tiny black socket. I think that tells the scanner what's going on with the cover. Then reinstall the cover plate. Now you should be good to go! Don't forget to unlock the carriage.

Scanner error 5


Try this one open up the scanning lid, use a small allen wrench and pull the screw at the left side of the frame that holds a 1 inch wide by 12 inch long piece of glass. pot ur finger inside the housing and begin to roll the gear/rubber belt to move the scanner bulb assembly towards the left side as far as you can go. Then, turn the machine off and on.
If you are adept at printer repair, remove the right side cover, by removing the two screws in the hand hold area. pull the cover out at the bottom, using the handhold area, it will pop quite loudly. Once you get the cover off, you will find a large sheetmetal box with a row of connectors across the top of the circuit board. You do not need to remove the sheetmetal box to access the connector I am referring to. The four wire bundle I'm referring to has black, yellow, blue and red wires going to it. It's pretty much in the center of the row of connectors Be sure it is secure.
If the connector is securely inserted and no pinched wires are observed, the next most likely cause for this issue is a calibration stip for the scanner head inside of the scanner top. There are no spare parts for that level of repair. Opening the scanner top to repair it is likely to let in dust or debris and you won't find much that can be done if the calibration strip has moved or delaminated. The scanner top will need to be replaced. I believe the part number for the scanner top is Q3948-60191 unless it's been replaced with a newer part number.


that shud work if it doest contact hp....

I have a Canon LiDE 60 need to open scanner. How do I open it?


I just fixed my lide50. The data cable on the left was getting stuck when the scanner was halfway the page. I put some tape around the cable to make it more stiff, now it´s o.k.

To open it you have the remove the long strips on the left and right hand side of the glass panel. they´re glued to the glass but can be removed using a small screw driver. After that carefully move the glass to the backside, now you can lift it. Be careful when moving the scanner around, the ´scanhead´ can get detached, it´s a pain in the *** to get it back together again.

Line on far right of scanned documents


Hi,

Most likely the scanner has dirt on the glass that is over the imaging array or the glass may be scrached. If the glass is scratch, the imaging CCD array need to be replaced. If you do not scan the rear of your documents, you can swap the upper with the lower in the case that one is scratched.

The imaging array are the green long bars, one at the bottom of the paper path halfway inside the scanner and the other is above it. Look closely for a small spot of black toner or dirt stuck
on the glass. Take a soft cloth, wet it with water or alcohol if needed and clean the glass.
Pass you finger over the glass, try to feel if all of the toner or rubber residue has been removed.
You might try looking at the specific area were your documents image is getting the line. It will
help you pinpoint where you should clean. CAREFULL not to push on the glass as this
might break it. Hope this helps.

Scanner not wanting to move


Scanner lock is enabled. Scanner lock is located below scanner where pages come out after printing near the left side. turn it a quarter turn and turn copier off and on again. Should solve problem. If not, then scanner could be dragging on a loose mylar under the glass that guides the ribbon cable. To fix this, you would have to remove the glass.
