You probably already did so, but I would advise calling Lexmark Support at 1-800-332-4120 and asking for a replacement. Sounds like the scan bar has gone bad.

Sorry for the late response, but don't blame me, I only registered here recently and Fixya asked if I could help with this problem.

Why is head bar vibrating frequently on startup?


It is supposed to do that while the ribbon runs and it scans the barcode.

The carrier slides back and forth on a bar that must slide smoothly. When you open the printer up, the heads come to the center for cartridge removal, so that part of the bar is oiled. Try lightly spraying a silicone or Teflon spray or a drop of high quality machine oil to the bar where the head will go through it, smearing it along the the bar. Another part is the plastic belt with teeth on it that moves the head from side to side. If the teeth have broken off, the head won't move properly. Some of these printers have an entire head assembly where the cartridges set that can be removed after the cartridges are out. If this print head assembly is damaged or worn out you will also get the error. The head damage is usually because some one yanked jammed paper vigorously out, pushing the head out of position, or the print head was moving when something stopped the head.

Scanner is making a grinding noise and won't scan.


Did I mention it sounds like the scanning assembly is locked in place for travel and needs unlocking?

It says to clear carrier jam; what is that and how do i do it?


The carrier is the bar that the print head travels along, open the cover as if you were going to install new ink cartridges and check for any obstructions.

The printer is making a gear clicking sound.


I had exactly the same problem with my OfficeJet 6110 as reported above (i.e. the scan head not knowing where the end-stop is). This is how to fix it (this method worked for me) 1) Lift up the scanner/copier hinged lid. Around the edge of the scan glass are 4 Torx screws. Undo all four screws. 2) Carefully prise the control panel faceplate off. The buttons underneath are on a single panel. Slide this to the left and lift off. 3) Jiggle the lid of the scanner to get it off the main body of the printer. 4) Locate the scan engine motor (top right corner) and remove the two motor retaining screws (one on the left of the motor, the other on the right). 5) Lift out the entire mechanism (rod, drive belt, scan head) and turn over. 6) Thoroughly clean all glass and mirrored areas of the scan head. Also clean the scan lamp on the top of the scan head. Clean the tray inside the scanner (where the scan head travels back and forth). Also clean the inside and outside of the scanner glass pane itself. 7) Refit all parts, using the technique described above, in reverse order. 8) Switch on printer. It should now work OK. Hope this helps, guys.

Sharp AL-1340 Scanner hangs up, grinding sound, with E-7 code


The scanner rails will dry out. Try a drop of oil on the rod the scanner travels on. There are two bushings that slide along the rod/rail. Good luck.

Ink module will not center itself


  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the <Open> button (MP500) or manually pull open the paper output tray

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)


    NOTE: When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.

  3. Open the inner cover.
  4. Unpack the ink tank and pull the orange tape off completely in the direction of the arrow and remove the film.

    Note: Tear the orange tape carefully along the dotted line. If the orange tape remains, printing problems may occur.

    05sj00141_06.jpg


    <4> Tape is completely removed.


    <5> Tape remains.

  5. Remove the orange protective cap located on the bottom of the ink tank by twisting as shown in the diagram.

    05sj00141_07.jpg

    CAUTION: Do not touch the ink tank contact <6>. Doing so may cause printing problems. Do not squeeze the side of ink tanks as this may cause the ink to leak out. Do not reattach the protective cap once you have removed it.

  6. Insert ink tanks into the print head.


    NOTE: Press the mark <PUSH> on the ink tank firmly until you hear a click.

  7. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

    Note : MP500 shown.


    <7> The ink tanks are installed properly.


    <8> The ink tanks are not installed properly.


    NOTE: Click for Ink Tank Lamp indications.


  8. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).


    CAUTION: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.


    Memo: The next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.


Ink Tank Lamp indications
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

Epson Stylus CX6400 not printing


The head assembly is attached to a photo sensor that tells the printer when it is at the ends of its travel.

Sounds like this mechanism is not working properly.
Check to make sure thare is no obstructions or dirt in the paths at the ends of the print head travel.

You can use an air gun to clean the printer (JUST KEEP IT AWAY FROM THE PRINTER CARTRIDGES) as the ink will FLY EVERYWHERE.....

Scanner not working


I work at a brother authorized repair center, the bad thing is that there is no specified A6 error, in any manual and when you call brother and tell them that you are calling from an Authorized repair center and that you need help with an A6 they*gasp* tell you to call an authorized repair center. Sorry about the rant.

The A6 is a general error relating to the scandeck on most MFC machines(9700/8440/8640) etc...

try changing the main PCB, it can be a little costly, however it generally doesn't take long, that is the general cause of the error. However, sometimes that doesn't work, so to save yourself a little time and money, just go buy another printer.
