This scanner has a paper detection sensor at the eject rollers where the paper comes out. Its a reflective device that can be fooled by paper dust buildup. Look in the gap where the paper is fed out, in the center you will find a little reflective patch facing up. Use a blower bulb or GENTLE puff of canned air, followed by a damp q-tip. There are similar sensors in the vertical transport that can give the same error. Don't overdo the canned air. It doesn't remove dust so much as just re-arrange it, usually to somewhere harder to reach. I don't keep it in my toolbox, and I do this for a living. Blower bulbs are much easier to control.

Hello, My Kodak i1440 scanner is blinking a steady red light. The time I turn the scanner on, both green and red blinks once then the red light get steady. what possibly could be the reason? Thanks;


First you need to see if the scanner shows in the device manager , if it doesnt it is likely the CPU / Main board is faulty If you can see the scanner in the device manager it has connected and loaded its firmware in this case it could be many things but the image guides are the most common issue , check them for damage especially the white area on the underside

There is a red light error on the scanner and it beleives there is paper in the scanner. I have unplugged and replugged everything. I have reset the scanner and I have also turned the paper feeder to...


I found someone had placed a piece of tape on the cork where the scanner feeds in which was causing the sensor to believe parper was there. When I removed the tape the red light went off.

Getting blinking "red light" , doesn't scan


There are a few reasons this might happen. 1) Check if the transport lock is in the locked position. Unlock the unit if it is locked.
2) An error occurred. Try restarting the computer, unplug the scanner, wait 10 seconds and reconnect the scanner. (This fixes issues where the software isn't running/fully loaded or the connection isn't solid).

Try a new USB cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub in the middle, try a direct connection. (Bi-directional communication is needed and this may show as an error if it is lost.)

3) Try unplugging the scanner from power and plugging it back in.

4) Try unplugging the optional accessories. If they fail, the unit may indicate a failure.

5) The lamp may need to be replaced.

6) Something else may have failed. Consider if it is worth having the unit serviced.

I hope one of these ideas helps.

Once i powered the avision 220 on, The moniter shows E and 7


Hello,

When you first turn the scanner on, the READY light will blink, indicating that the diagnostics are in progress. Observe
the front panel Error LED (Red) closely. In a short time, the Error LED indicates the results of the offline diagnostics as
explained below.

Ready LED(Green) is off and Error LED(Red) indicates 7, the error indication is"Face down light check failure".

Followings are the solution for the above problem:

1. CCFL is on? Yes. CCD error, Optical assembly is to be replaced.
2. CCFL is on? No. Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced.
3. CCFL is on? Yes. Issue resolved.
4. If the CCFL is still off, then CCFL is to be replaced.

Hope the above information is helpful.

Please revert if you have any doubt.

Thank you for contacting FixYa.

Regards,

Red light flashing and noise


The user manual states the flashing red light signals that your transportation lock is on. Look underneath the scanner and you'll see a switch for "lock" and "unlock." If the switch is turned to "lock" move it over to "unlock" and plug the usb cable back into your computer. It should work with no flashing red light. If not try restarting your computer and plugging it back in again.

Initially, I get a green flashing light when unit turned on, but after a minute or so, it turns to a red flashing light. It will take in the film tray only when blinking red, not when blinking green. My iMac has a hard time seeing the scanner, keep getting "scanner not found" messages. I have to go to system profiler and have it refresh and then it finds it, then the scanner software sees it too. But I have been unable to one preview out of it, says LED error and that's it. Using 10.4.10 on an iMac 20" with 2.5gb of RAM, using Pshop CS2 or going through Minolta Driver of OSX I got off of VersionTracker. I did remove the screw for transport right away. Will feed in 35mm tray with red blinking light, will not feed in 120 tray except partially with red blinking light, and only a couple times out of maybe ten tries.

Scanner not responding to preview scan


Try this as a last ditch effort. Remove the software. Reboot the computer and come off line. Disable the Anti Virus program. Now install the soft ware. Then try. If the red light still flashes then assume it is new scanner time.

Ready/Error Light


IT have just been down to look at our scanner & cleaned the sensor which is in between the rollers just where the paper flits out at the bottom - we now have a green light! So look for that sensor.
