    OK I KNOW ALL ABOUT THE ROLLERS, PAPER SIZES ETC. THE TRAY DOESNT LIFT THE PAPER UP TO THE ROLLERS, SO IM TRYING TO FIND OUT IS IT THE LIFT MOTOR OR THE PHOTO SENSOR, IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILAR WITH THIS MACHINE PLEASE ADVISE ME SO I CAN MOVE FORWARD, THX

    the original paper tray should lift up to the feed seperation rollers when there is a document in the tray and you hit scan on your computer. it doesnt it says paper jam, because the tray never lifts up to the rollers to feed in to the machine, so either the photo sensor that sees the paper in the tray is bad or the lift motor? I dont think its the roller motor, the roolers aernt told to move until the tray lifts and triggers that switch

I saw a reference to a scanner lock switch on this unit, so check that it hasn't been bumped to the locked position. And yes, it can be a paper jam, the sensor being jammed or broken.
Also, some printers with paper inserted smaller than that selected will result in lockup of the scanner, so check that out.
Couldn't find any reports of this on the net, so it's just a fluke, and hope these suggestions help.

Hello,

A scanner will jam for any number of reasons: It's dirty, the wrong paper type is being used, or the rollers on the scanner that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. While cleaning the printer periodically and using the correct paper type are easy fixes, but thuis are not the the problem, it means the roller is worn out and will need to be replaced.

Take care.

    Hello,

    The sensor is not the problem, it is roller motor that is the problem, the roller motor is worn out, that is why your scanner cannot lift the paper.

Hello, i have a Problem with my Canon dr 9050c. If the scanner starts the paper-tray move correct up and down. If the Scanner get a Scanjob from pc than the tray don't lift up. it sounds like the motor...


There are a set of gears that convert motor rotation into lifting of the tray. Check if the gears are aligned properly. Any stapler pin jammed inside can stop the gear, while the motor pushes it forward. This will create noise. Very unlikely that these motors fail. Also clean the paper sensor in the tray.

Hi, i have a Canon dr 9050c scanner. I have the folowing Problem: When the Scanner power on then the Tray move up and down. if i start a scan from PC than can the Scanner not lift up the tray. It sounds...


It sounds like you diagnosed it.
The tray "paper detect sensor" thinks it has paper in it, and if it doesn't have paper in it...there's a problem with the sensor.
Take the tray off and inspect the sensor. Blow out around the sensor and it's PCB and make sure it is not out of position. Check the sensor lens for anything blocking it, and retest. If it still shows always on, then replace the sensor. Press the "count only" button to illuminate it, and press the "start" button. If the scanner works properly (tray lifts, pulls paper through the scanner, and counts it)...well then you have software or connectivity issue.

Hope that helps,

If you lift up the cover you will see 2 sets of roller,try cleaning them with a damp cloth and one at the bottom too,if that fails you can replace them and it is not expensive!

Computer not finding canon dr-3080c scanner, replaced on system that was working w/ canon dr-3080c and still not working


Please check if you have installed 'Driver' without which the Comp cannot recognise the SCanner. (Driver is the software interface when two hardwares are connected).

Paper tray at front of scanner will not lift. Scanner has been reset multiple times and computer rebooted as well. Error msg= unknown error canon DR-6080/7880/9080C driver versioin 1.3.10502.17001 (-4523)


Disconnect the scanner from the Comp, Try 'page counting'. If the papers go through, then you know feed mechanism is okay. if the tray is not lifting, then you have a problem. Use Qumatool software and check if the tray is lifting. If the scanner tray if lifting then the motor is okay, if not, the lifting motor may need a check.If the motor is okay, but tray not lifting means the sensor in the paper tray is faulty. Check this out.

Dr6080 paper tray does not raise up. computer says no paper in tray


Use Qumatool and check if tray is lifting. If it is lifting, then Tray lifting motor is okay, then you need to adjust the sensor just under the Document lifting tray. If it not lifting, then you may have to change the motor. (Just now saw yr note and replying, hope it is not tooooo late!) S. Mohan

I have a canon dr-3080c that will scan all but the last page have to put blank sheet of paper to complete scan job, have replaced roller kit for other problem and the kit repaired that problem but still...


I think this is rubber roller problem. Obviously, the scanner cannot find out which is the last page. If the paper available is less, the roller is not pulling the last few sheets.

No page was found in scanner when one was there


Lift up the black frame around the large soft grey pick rollers on the upper part of the paperfeed until it locks into place. Power off scanner and back on and the trya will lift and the paper will feed.
