Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Scanner I have been using my scanner successfully all weekend. Now, when I try to scan, it goes through the scanning process but what it shows me is scanned is blank/empty. Two scans ago it had colored lines through it so I guess it deteriorated over the last 3 or 4 attempted scans. How do I resolve this? Thank you - any direction much appreciated. Best, Mary

    Yes, but what is an LED failure. If it is that what should I do?

    I will de-install and re-install my printer drivers.

    Best,

Can you still see light move up and down the scanner when you scan? If not then the lamp burnt out. I looked quickly for a replacement lamp and it looks hard to find. If the bulb is find then the picture pick-up element is faulty or its trailing cable is broken. If the bulb is hard to find then these parts would be even harder. There probably isn't much that can be done for you machine if it's not under warranty. If it is under warranty then don't hesitate to call HP.

    An LED is a light emitting Diode which are the little electronic lights found in most electronics these days. You scanner either uses LEDs or a fluorescent lamp to produce the light needed to scan. I very much doubt that re-installing your drivers resolves your problem. I you bet that if you did a copy using your printer the result would also be blank. Copying does not use the driver or the computer at all.

Try and uninstall and reinstall the drivers. If that doesn't help it sounds like you might have an LED failure. If you need the drivers let me know.
Keep me posted,

    It is a part in the scanner that has to do with actually scanning the picture(not getting technical). When the lines show up on the scans thats when it is failing. Depending on how long ago you bought it, it still may be under warranty and you can have it serviced. Otherwise you can always pick up another all in one for about 40-50$. Then still use that printer for printing and the new one for scanning.
    Keep me updated.
    Thanks,
    Lee

If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.

How do I scan a document please?!


Hello,
you can a document using a scanner.
1. you have to find a SCANNER machine that is responsible in scanning the files you want to scan.
2. Then after you find a scanner, next thing to do is to place the document file in the scanner and make sure that your scanner is properly connected and turn on.
3. Click and run the software that is bundled with the scanner to scan the document and then you have to set the path where your scanned file is to be place.
4. Then after the scanning process finished then click the save button to save the scanned files.

Thanks

I want to use my Minolta biz 163 as a scanner. All print and scan drivers installed successfully. But when I try to scan with Vista's scan program, nothing happens. Program doesn't see 163 as a scanner and...


the easiest way to scan using this device is through the software that shipped with the device, failing that use the camera scanner wizard in Vista to add the device and then you will be able to scan via Twain (technology without an interesting name) if this answers your query and you succesfully manage to print please rate my response accordingly thank you

Epson DX6000 scanner problem


If it's a new printer, try changing the USB printer cable. Sometimes one of the wires just gives out and doesn't communicate properly between the printer and your PC. Hope this helps.

Scanner won't scan


try connecting it to another computer. If it works, then it is a prblem with your computer, otherwise it is with your scanner hardware.

 

If you can open the scanner clean the circuit board with (Isopropyl alcohol) IPA solution. you can also try replacing the ribbon type cables connecting the print head.

 

If the problem arised due to dust accumulation, the above action should solve the problem.
