Cannot scan two sided

Open the Scan Validation Tool. Select TWAIN / KODAK i2000 Scanner. Click the setup button (top left icon). Highlight Default. Towards the bottom left of this window, you should see a drop down box under "Input Document Is:", click the drop down box and ensure "Two Sided" is selected. If you are using some other third party software to scan and still having issues with scanning two-sided - you are on your own!

Good Evening, I have a i420 Kodak Scanner when scanning in images it makes this high pitch screaming noise.

I highly doubt the main board is going bad. There is a huge difference between an electronic high pitched noise vs a scanner noise. Does the noise only occur while scanning or when parts are moving? If yes, then a scanner noise. If the noise is on all the time even when idle, then you have an electronic noise like an open or leaking capacitor.
On this particular model the seperation idle roller builds up with paper dust and will cause a high pitched noise. Like nails on a chalk board. Very simple fix. Open cover. Grab seperation assembly and pull toward the tray at the front of the scanner, it will pop loose then lift up. Make sure to pop it back into place good. Be forcefull. With the assembly in hand, clean, and lube idle roll. It is the first metal/plastic roll the paper touches at the tray entrance. Also clean the shafts and bushings for the rubber rolls. Reassemble and you are all set. Happens on EVERY I420 scanner I have seen.

Why is it making noise every time i turn on power

If the noise is a high pitched whirrrrr, it is the scanner warming up and getting ready for the scan job. If it clunks, or the noise "sounds bad", make sure the "Lock" is not engaged on the bottom of the scanner.

Epson SX100 Scanner makes a loud clicking noise!

On the back of the Epson Perfection 1660 Photo there is a lever that shows a lock and a unlock by where you plug in the wire to the computer. It must be in the unlocked position otherwise it will make that loud clicking noise and not work. Hope this helps.

I have a Kodak i40 scanner and it does not feed the pages through very well, it keeps failing even when I only feed through 5 at a time! What is the limit number of pages the feeder will take?

This may help. The scanner has a pad assembley which needs to be replaced once it has worn out. If you open the top of the scanner using the button on the left hand side then on the part that open upwards you will see a pad about an inch in lengh with two clips either side. This pad should be about 4 - 5 mm in thickness if it is less then that then paper just files through. You can get the replacment pad from companies on the internet.
Hope this helps

Hi Inday, Based on your post/description, there appears to be a mechanical problem with your scanner. It would seem that something is blocking the moving part of the scanner internally. Should you wish to give it a try, you have to open the scanner. Chances are you have to invert with the bottom up to access the screws. There might be 6-8 screws with plastic locking at the sides. Upon removal of the bottom plate, the interior of the scanner would be exposed. There should be practically nothing inside except for a movable bar that is held in place on one side by a guide rail and a plastic toothed belt on the other end. Near the topend would be an electronic board. Check that there is no blockage on the guide rail nor on the path of the roller or the toothed belt. Since this sound more of a mechanical problem (due to the "loud sound" that you heard), it should be visually detectable. Good luck and pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Kind regards from Batangas.
