Hello Mandb,
I also have ants in my PIXMA MP760 multifunction unit, I have just pulled it apart and reassembled it after removing several black broken bits relating to the hinges at the back of the scanner lid. The ants have seemed to have left home (wishful) but I would recomend you take to it with a phillips screwdriver, (carefully) or, if you don't want to do the surgery, take it out in to the sunshine and leave it there for about an hour, no longer.
Give it a bump every 10minutes or so, just to give the ants a help along.

If this dosent help, try coaxing them out with some ant food, but be there in person to stop them returning afta, a feed.

Failing this, take it to the repairman.

Do NOT spray bug spray into it, if the ants die in there, they will decompose, in the process it will corrode any fine copper tracks on the PCBs, it will only be fit for the dump then.

BTW, food colouring seems to be a cheeeep excellent ink replacement :)

I cant seem to find where i load the ink cartridge into the printer


1. Raise the scanner bed and position the scanner support to hold the bed up, exposing the printer cartridges.

2. Press down on the tab on the end of the cartridge cover to open the cartridge bay. Pull the old cartridge straight out of the bay and properly dispose of it. Remove the tape and stickers from the new cartridge and insert the new cartridge into the bay.

3. Press the cover down until it locks in place, securing the cartridge. Repeat the process on the other cartridge if necessary.

4. Lift the scanner bed to release the scanner support. Lower the scanner bed to close the printer.

I have scanner hooked up to laptop and i press scan, it says scanning but has nothing showing up for a picture scanned


Is this a new scanner? If so, most scanners come "locked".
Make sure you consult your user manual and remove the lock (usually by turning a knob/handle/switch under the hood somewhere).

If this has scanned before, watch the scanner bed as you try to scan. If the light does not coarse the entire scanner bed, then the lock may have become re-enabled... or the motor could have come off track. Sometimes this can be fixed by manually adjusting things inside (be careful! as this could really damage your scanner).

If the light does move entirely across the bed, try to re-install the software onto your computer. If you dont have the software, you can grab a copy at dell's support site.

Also, check your cables. If you are trying to scan through a network, you might try USB instead, just to make sure the scanner works. and its not a connection problem.

The connection type can be set during installation.

Hope this helps!

I dont know how to change the ink cartridge on my lexmark 5500-6600 series


just near the control panel lift the top portion of the printer which is the flat bed scanner assembly and that should give you access to the ink station

I dont know how to scan


HI, The easiest procedure to scan a document using your scanner is open Paintbrush that is installed with your operating system. Click on File Menu at the top left corner of your screen, then select "From Scanner or Camera". Once you have selected the option, you will be prompted for your scanner. Select the installed scanner and go on scanning the image/document placed on the glass bed of your scanner. Once the scanning has been completed, save the image file.
Cheers!

Have nest of ants under glass. Will not scan


Sorry to hear about the Ants. The only solution I can give you, it to take it outside, and spray with CAN Air, until all out. This is where I would start FIRST.

Good luck...........

You should probably look on the internet for a service manual for it. It may have a specific place to put it for timing purposes.
