Question about Bell & Howell Copiscan 8000 Spectrum Series Path-Through Scanner

1 Answer

I am having a problem with the motor that moves the rollers to feed and convey paper into the scanner...Tried to replace the motor but experienced some difficulties of removing the retaining screw that holds the pulley to the motor shaft. my scanner is a "Bell & Howell" copiscan 8000 plus. I used the 1/16" Hex key, but it doesn't seem like it is the righ size? What is the best way to remove the retaining screw if the screw head was damaged? It doesn't appear that the screw head was damaged...

Just check if the papers are sticky. Stapled papers even after removing the pins are held together at the point where the pin was! In the horizontal direction it can hold two papers together. Multiple papers can prevent loading of sheets. Clean the pickup  rollers with a damp cloth thoroughly, no solvents please.

SOURCE: Bell & Howell Copiscan Spectrum corner problems

It can be a nightmare to find out what is causing the dog ear page or folded page at the corner. Check your glass **** inside the scanner to make sure its seated in the scanner properly. The big one is the check the metal paper guides in the scanner paper path. If a guide is bend it will hook the paper and cause it to fold over.

How do I replace rollers that are too slick to feed paper properly and from where can I purchase said rollers?


The rollers may have become glazed from feeding particular paper stock. Your machine may be old enough that the feed rollers are simply worn out. Finding replacement rollers could be difficult, especially if the machine is so old it no longer is supported.

I cannot Fax multple pages otherwise the machine jams. I need to feed 1 page at a time which is not ideal. Is there a way to overcome this?


Paper jam usually happens due to dirty or in some cases worn out paper pick up roller. I think, cleaning the pickup roller would fix the issue. Remove the paper input tray. Open the top cover (ADF) by pulling it from the back (where the paper goes) towards the front to open the scanner as indicated below

Inspect for any tron peices of paper dirt etc. Locate the rollers and clean them with a soft, damp, lint-free cloth. Also, you may clean the Sheet-fed scanner (Mirror and white platten) for better copy/ scan results with a dry cloth. DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Check the following items:
1 Does the document satisfy the paper specification?
2 Clean the Feed rollers and the Plastic rollers and see if the error is resolved.
3 Replace the Pick roller and the Brake roller and see if the error is resolved. Check the consumable counter in the software operation panel or in the built-in Maintenance mode. When the counter exceeds the values, replace the Pick roller or the Brake roller.
4 Are the cables between the Control PCA and the Feed motor damaged? Are the connectors connected properly?
5 Is the Optical unit ADF installed correctly?
6 Is the Belt ADF installed correctly?
7 Is the Belt ADF damaged?
8 Replace Feed motor and see if the error is resolved.
9 Replace the Optical unit ADF and see if the error is resolved.
10 Replace the ADF unit and see if the error is resolved.

Pls acknowledge of the issue is resolved.

Paper will not feed correctly


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Misfeed when scanning documents


What you want to try it take a blank paper and on the middle of the page on front put a small ammount of rubbing alcohol on it, then enter the paper into the scanner and hold it so you jam it as it feeds. Then look at the area you placed the alcohol for the presence of some dirt, a blackish smear will normally appear on the paper, Do that 4 or 5 times and that will clean the wheels well. If it helps, then most likely you have just textured the rollers for a short period of time and they should be replaced. But the reason why you want to try that is to be sure the problem is slipping by the roller texture and not the roller drives, ( a clutch or motor). But since it sounds like you give your scanner a workout, the rollers are most likely the problem. Replace all the feed rollers and also look for a pad that presses against the feed roller. Depending on the type of scanner there will be either one roller that barely moves or a rubber pad that is called a skid or ****** pad, what they do is limit or ****** the feed of multiple sheets of paper. I would recommend replacing that , pad or stationary roller, it is important in feeding.

Trouble with paper feed


Frequent jams are because either scanner picks up more than one paper or does not pickup at all. If scanner picks up more than one paper, then paper is sticky. If the paper is thin, it can pick up two at a time. Fan the papers so that they are not sticky.

Paper at the point of entry into the scanner must be crisp. If folded or 'dog-eared' trim it. Rotate the paper if any other side is crisp, roate the image later.

Clean all the rollers thoroughly, the pickup roller, retard roller and other rollers in the scanner. One can rotate the inner rollers and clean totally, not just waht is seeable area. If the rubber is worn out, it must be replaced. TRy a single page to check if the rubber is okay. Jarring noise is because the motor is 'stopped' and cant rotate because paper is stuck. This can affect motor/inner parts, but is designed for normal use.

The rollers and retard pad need replaced.
The rollers are self explanitory, the retard pad is so named to retard the feed of multiple sheets of paper.
That is your problem.

Try cleaning the rubber rollers onder the cover where the documents feed in, using a rag and some rubbing alcohol.
