Scanner making clicking noise

Hi, you solved a problem - scanner making clicking noise.
My scanner is doing the exact same thing, except when I dismantled it, I cannot find any trace of a flat tab or a small light...

Please reply with a more detailed description of what I'm supposed to do.
Thanks very much, you legend!

It's a HP Officejet 6110

Thisis what I found in a scanner-copier. The moving bar of the scanner hasa flat tab that fits into a slot that has a very small light in it.That tells the bar to stop. When dust collects in the slot area, thelight can't see the tab, and the bar bangs into the end, and the beltjumps and makes noise.. Blow out the dust.

I just got that scanner back, L1 error code on a Sharp copier. Means the scanner can't move quick enough to satisfy the specs.. Removed the lock, not needed. Oiled the bar, scanner works ok now. Will look for Triflon lubricant, my favorite. Will check with local repair shop for recommended lubes. That light sensor switch is not necessarily on your unit, but I see them on a lot of machines. Sometimes it's just a little tab or button, hard to find. Check the freedom of your scanner bar. Temporarily loosen the drive if you can. The bar must move freely.

I am trying to scan and i get the message "communication error - make sure computer is connected - i am using wireless and the printer works what do i have to do to make the scanner work?


Hi,
To work around this problem, you must create a Windows Firewall exception for TCP port 21. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. In the Windows Firewall dialog box, click the Exceptions tab, and then click Add Port.
  3. In the Add a Port dialog box, type Scanner and Camera Wizard in the Name: text box.
  4. In the Port number: text box, type 21.
  5. Click TCP, and then click OK.
Restart the computer and now you should be able to scan.
Cheers.!!!

Did you ever get a resolution to your problem? I have exactly the same problem with same error message - and very loud clicking noises coming from the scanner. Powering it down - allowing it to "cool" for 5 minutes will get probably 1 or 2 documents through the scanner before the error message reappears. But this is only a workaround rather than a solution.

Sharp CopierAL1661CS scanner function seems jammed. makes clicking noise the grinds but no movement across platen


Under the top left side above the paper exit tray, there is a glass like lock that either unlocks the platen or locks it. If you accidentally touch it when collecting copied papers, you locks the scanner motor causing that clicking noise.
Remedy
  • Check that lock and rotate it the other direction slowly till it stops.
  • If it does not solve this, open the document glass and check the the rail that carries the scanner. Oil it to make it smooth and no problem should occur. Also check that the motor is securely locked in its position.
Best of luck.

Clicking noise and will not print.


Hi Folks

My 2410 had the same problem and is now 100% functional again

Here is the Solution:
Go to hp.com
at search look for exactly:
!psc 2410 how to clean the scanner"
the first hit is the right one.

There is a complete description, how to do.

The problem seems to be, that the scanner can't calibrate on the right optical marker (inner backsite of the scanner glas) and the motor still retries to move the scanner behind this marker what causes the noise.

Hope it willhelp you
regards,
Michael

Hi, when you lift the cover where the flatbed glass is can you see the scanner trying to move back and forth? Also you might want to check and make sure the scanner lock didn't get moved to where the scanner just goes back in forth ? Are you getting any error codes?

Is the ticking sound coming from the right side near the bottom? Or the left side near the top. If it is the right bottom then you're looking at a service station. If it is the left top then a scanner unit. Scanner unit is not available from Hp. You can try dismantling and cleaning all mirrors and lenses (usually doesn't work). If it is the service station, you are probably going need parts that are not availble.

Priner doesn't want to scan, copy, or print


The only thing I can really suggest is that you reinstall all the software. If it persists you should get in touch with HP, use your warranty if valid.
