    Ginko's comments seem good, but I can't find any menu where I can switch off 'print single sheets' - thanks again.

  • sathomps Jul 24, 2008

    Sorry - Pagebor's solution doesn't address the problem. The door closes just fine - it's that I can't print or scan from a BOOk, because I get an error message saying 'door open' - which of course it IS - because there's a book in there that I want to print from! Looking forward to your help in printing/scanning from a book. Thanks, S.T.

  • sathomps Jul 24, 2008

    I can't print or scan or fax anything that isn't a sheet or two of paper, such as a book.

    The solutions FixYa has sent so far don't address the problem. I have no problem closing the door on the printer. The door closes just fine - it's that I can't print or scan from a BOOK, because I get an error message saying 'door open' - which of course it IS - because there's a book in there that I want to print from! Looking forward to your help in printing/scanning from a book. Thanks, S.T.

Open the cover the entire way and your problem will most likely be solved. You may get some garbage around the edges of what you are copying because there is no white background thought. My kids copy homework all the time this way. The scanner says open door when the lid is partially closed but does not if you leave it up the whole way. Hope this helps

On these models there is supposed to be a lid adjustment for scanning books. I looked all over, but couldn't find the adjuster or a "how to" for the adjuster, just that there is an adjuster. It's possible that it's out of adjustment.

Make sure you do all of these:

Divide books into categories: books that will lie flat and books that will not. Accept that a book cannot be scanned if text refuses to lie flat and curves into the center.
Understand that textbook publishers sometimes intentionally make text flow close to the center to make copying challenging.
Push down on the book's spine to get the text to lie flat.
Remove binding when possible to force a book to lie flat on the copier, when scanning books other than library books. Separate pages first. Use wood glue to reattach neatly. Cut pages later.
Understand that a separated book is valuable after scanning. Realize reading a separated book is often easier to read than a book where you have to keep the pages open.

Hope that helps........

It won't let you scan if it senses the cover/door is open (which is true 'cause there's a book).

Simply put, that equipment can't do "regular scanners/copiers" can. It has a sensor, regular one's don't.

    You can only refer to your user manual if there's such option to turn OFF the sensor feature which I doubt built-in.

Should try restoreing the printer to factory default settings, also. if that doesn't solve the problem there may be a faulty sensor in the printer.

Posted on Jul 24, 2008

  • Ekse Jul 24, 2008

    Aha, book, in that case you need to make sure the doorsensor gets signal that the door is closed. theres a switch or a sensor somewhere which needs to be pressed or covered when the door is closed, you need todo this yourself somehow, you need to press some button or cover a sensor.. dont know where it is really, would need to buy a service manual to figure that one.

Plz check the door is closing down correctly, the sensor which is responsible for the door close operation might be not working correctly, just open your printer and check for any loose connection or broken parts

    Here is the User Guide , check at page 61:

    Change scan settings
    To change scan settings

    • HP Device Manager (Mac OS): Launch HP Device Manager, click Information
    and Settings, and then select Scan Preferences from the drop-down list.

    • Windows: Open the device software, select Settings, select Scan Settings and
    Preferences, then select from the available options and make your selections.

    By the way the scanner mannual does not mention in any place that you can scan multiple sheet without manual feeding.
    If you do not find the option for single/multiple sheed in scan settings as in my last post, this means that it will require manual feeding at each scan, as it does not have multi scan paper feeding.

I MAKE A COPY AND I GET MY COPY BUT I ALSO GET A BLANK SHEET.


See if your copier has "Book mode" if so it's scanning you original and looking and scanning for an open book, i.e. page left on glass and page Right (two) on glass. Like you had a book flattened out on the glass. Make any since? #2 possible malfunction in print button. #3. Are sheets coming out stuck together or do they appear to be two separate scans?

Black vertical line when copying a book page.no light leaks.


If it is along the edge of the print, it may be the edge of the book page you are seeing. if it is going through the text of the page, your scan carriage is likely skipping. If you don't see this on copies of single sheets of paper laid on the glass, then the weight of the book may be deforming the glass enough to catch the scan carriage as it passes. If you see it on single copied sheets, there is probably something on one of the scan rails under the glass that the carriage is "hopping" over as it passes. You could try watching the scan carriage move while holding the lid open to see if the carriage "hops" once during a scan.

I'm trying to photocopy a book on a canon imagerunner 5075 without copying one page at a time and flipping the book around. Is there a way where the copier scans the right page and then scans the left page...


Hi Kim,
there are a couple of easy ways to tackle this problem. you have a book that when the spline is opened exposes 2 pages to the glass for the possibility of copying. What YOU need to determine is whether or not you want page 1 to ouput seperately from page 2, or , would you like page one to be on one side and page 2 to be on the second side. In other words auto duplex. That decision determines which feature you will use. I will walk you thru both. I realize you want the copier to scan the first page and then scan the second without you having to move the book around. I'm thinking you would be happy if the copier did that very thing and you wound up with a 2 sided copy with page 1 on the front and page 2 on the back. Here we go. Fom the main copy display locate the 2 sided button and select it. Select "book 2 sided" and follow the prompts. You could actually copy the entire book this way and when you are thru press "done" and here comes the avalanche!
If you want the images 1 sided on seperate sheets (not sure why) you can select "special features" from the display in the lower right corner and select "2 page seperation". same drill.

Cant send nor receive faxes


dear sir,kindly follow the below instructions
Instructions
  1. Ensure that all cables are securely connected. First, make sure that the printer cable connecting your computer to your printer is connected securely. Then, make sure that the power cord is inserted into a wall outlet. Try your print job again after you have ensured that all cables are properly connected.

  2. Clear a paper jam if your printer is not responding or you are receiving a "Paper Jam" error message on your printer. To clear a jam, first open the rear output door by pushing down on the two levers on each side of the door. Opening the rear door simply makes it easier to clear a jam. Open the top cover on the front of the printer by pressing the release button on the right side of the printer. Locate the paper jam and use two hands to gently remove the paper jam. Try your print, scan, fax or copy job again.

  3. Clear stored or saved faxes if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes. Old faxes may be stuck in the fax queue, which may be causing the printer to not respond. To remove stored faxes, press the "Menu" button on the printer and select "Fax Functions." Then select "Clear Saved Faxes." Wait for the queue to clear and try your fax job again.

  4. Remove paper from the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray if your scan job is coming out crooked. The ADF input tray can only hold up to 50 sheets at a time. If there are more than 50 sheets in the input tray, the output may appear skewed. Try your scan job again after removing the paper.

  5. Adjust your computer monitor's display settings if your scanned image is not an accurate representation of the original image. This can be done in the "Control Panel" in Windows. Set the settings to the highest possible resolution and try your scan job again.

  6. Perform a power cycle on your printer if the previous steps were unsuccessful. To do this, turn off your printer, then unplug it from the wall. Wait a few minutes and plug the printer back in. Try your print, scan, fax or copy job again.


take care..thank you

SCANNER SAYING NO USER ID


This means that you have not set up any users in the address book in the printer.

Copy is simple, it will scan the document and print out a copy of the scanned image.

Scan however, is trying to make and store an image file of the scan, but it needs to know WHERE you want to scan it to. The printer does not know where to send the stored image unless you create a storage location for it. This is done with the address book that is stored on the printer.

The material below is how to set up the scanner settings of the printer.

Printer Settings Utility Using the Printer Settings Utility window, you can set up the fax system data options, and create and edit Phonebook entries from your computer. You can also configure the destination launches when you access Scan and then PC.
When you install the Dell software, the Printer Settings Utility is automatically installed.
For information about installing the software, see "Installing Software in Windows".
To open the Printer Settings Utility:
  1. Click Start software25.jpg Programs software25.jpg DELL software25.jpg DELL Printers software25.jpg DELL Laser MFP 1815 software25.jpg Printer Settings Utility.
The Printer Settings Utility window opens.

  1. The Printer Settings Utility window provides several features; Directory (Phone Book, Address Book), Fax Setting (Fax Cover Sheet), and Scan (Destination, Resolution, Scan Color, Show Preview).
The Scan Section The Destination Section To configure the operator panel display scan destination list that appears when you access Scan and then PC, click Destination and the Setting button. Using the destination list, you can select a software program that an image can be scanned to.

I replaced the color cartridge with a HP95 replacement and when I put the lid back down I got the error message "Remove and check color cartridge." I did but nothing seemed wrong. I put the original back in and got the same message. A third cartridge did the same thing. I wiped the contacts with a Q-tip and got the same message. Anybody have this problem before?
