    My scanner

  • SMEBIZREZ Apr 20, 2008

    Scanner comes up with I/O Hardware Error after scanning 32% of my document. I have uninstalled and reinstalled software, checked and replace cables with still no success. I have a USB cable that allows my Samsung SCX -4521F to be shared with my laptop computer and I have no problem scanning to my other computer. My desktop is relatively new and is windows XP not Vista.

    Same problem. Copying and printing are fine, but when I try to scan I get an alert box saying 'Hardware I/O problem'. Am going to re-install the (incredibly flaky) SmartThru software and retry...

I had a similar problem. Turns out it was acting up, if there was a memory stick attached to it. (It was connected using parralel port)

I had the same problem and found no solution on the net, so I sent Samsung an email. Turns out I did not have the right driver (the original model on the printer says SCX-4521F, but there was a sticker in the box where the model shows SCX-4521FG. The Samsung help desk told me to install the scanner driver for the FG model and sent me print screen of the Printer Settings Utility. You have to set the output type to Grayscale (8bit mono) and the resolution to 150dpi.

Anyway, it works now. I had tried just about everything, I was about to put the printer back in its box...

The printer works fine from Windows including Scanner.When using photocopy from printer panel does not work.


If you are not getting any error messages, I suspect you definitely have a printer hardware problem, especially if it prints fine from Windows. Best to contact Canon's technical support with this one

When hp photosmart does not photocopy what is that thing that can cause it not to copy


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED, to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now take a test print and CALIBRATE the scanner with the test print.
Now the printer must be set to copy if not there are errors on the scanner section.

When I scan photos there is a vertical line on the resulting picture and I don't know how to remove it or stop it happening


Hello.
Try a basic photocopy, it the page printed displays these lines also then it is a error with the scanning light and this would need to be replaced.

Cannot print and fax using Lexmark x2470 All-inOne Center


Make sure your printer is set up correctly, check port it's set to be using, is it usb or lpt port. Try switching to a different port and see if it will help you.

If all fails, try deleting the printer and associated devices from device manager. Reconnect the printer, if a new hardware found message dons't come up, try a different USB port. I think, in order to successfuly install a PNP printer, it must first come up a message saying NEW HARDWARE FOUND. Then the rest will follow.

USB NOT CONNECTED ERROR WHEN IT IS CONNECTED


This is a HP hardware/software error and HP has not fixed it.

The C4250 may report that "USB is not connected" but the printer works just fine and when you use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard to carry out a scan, it works just fine too. So the error message is wrong.

The Microsost Scanner and Camera Wizard can be found on the Control Panel.
