Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The scanning devise (the light under the glass) will not go all the way across

When you turn the PSC on the light will move about a inch from the right and then it goes back and all you hear is a click, click, etc. Is there anyway to reset this? I think it is out of place. The belt that it runs on looks okay. Any suggestions? Is it worth fixing if I can find anyone who wants to be bothered or is it better to buy a new one?
Thanks,
KK

It is only out of alignment so it is better to have it serviced than disposing it off .

When i try to make a copy it comes out all black and when I try to scan something it is all black


Check the scanner bulb - it's suppose to light up when you copy or scan. Look inside the scan bed and as you copy or scan, it should light and move across the bed.

Sharp AL 1457 Flashes code L 1. I have read about the scan lock on here and have turned it to the unlock position but it still does not work. It is definitely turned to "unlock" and continues...


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.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I am getting a blue line on my scans when utilizing the feeder


The feeder sends the original across a small piece of glass. The scanner stays in one position as the paper runs across it rather than the scanner moving and paper staying still. The little piece of glass is probably a 1/2 inch by 12 inch glass. just clean that strip of glass. use alcohol. there is probably some whiteout on the glass. It will appear as a dot. When the paper runs across it, the dot is run across the whole page causing the line. if you cant find the strip of glass, run a scan and try to see where the scan light sits while it's running. Clean everywhere where the light sits.

Black vertical lines on faxes sent using auto document feeder


If you lift up the lid on your scanning device you will notice a glass strip about 1 inch thick and then the large area of glass used for flatbed scanning. The 1 inch strip is used for ADF scanning. Because your papper is moving across the glass strip, any dot, smudge or scratch will affect your scanning and cause verticial lines down the page. Sometimes the dot is not visible to the eye. Get some glass cleaner that has alcohol in it and thoroughly clean the glass strip and it should solve your problem. If it turns out to be a scratch on the glass then cleaning won't help.
