Canon suggests that you press and hold down the power button until the machine resets itself. If this doesn't work, their tech support states "scanner may need repair".

Beeps 3 times and power light flashes


I have not solved the problem. I just changed to a different printer. I had a bj50 printer and it use to do this and would change the printhead but they are expense and I have 3 different ones so believe it is something else that is wrong with this one.

Xerox Documate 252, just quit working


The flashing green light has the following meaning:

• Blinking green: indicates the scanner is waking up from power
saving and preparing to scan.
• Steady green: indicates the scanner is ready to scan.

How to Adjust the Power Save Settings for the DocuMate 252
1. Right-click on the One Touch icon and choose Show
Hardware from the pop-up menu.
You can also click the scanner icon at the top of the One Touch
Button Panel.
If the Hardware View of the panel is open you can also right-
click on the DM252 icon.
The Hardware Properties dialog box opens and shows
information about your Xerox DocuMate 252 scanner.
2. Click the Properties button.
Your scanner has a built-in power saving feature that is set to
power down after 15 minutes of idle time. You can change the
time before the scanner powers down, from 1 minute to a
maximum of 3 hours.
3. Click the arrows for the Lamp timeout setting and choose a
time setting.
To return the scanner to its factory settings, click Reset Device.
4. Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog box.

Let me know if this solves the problem and thank you, Binary Bob

Canoscan 9950F won't scan, says scanner locked, but it isn't


I was surprised by the same problem this morning. First time I've had a problem with in years. Checked the lock... it was already unlocked. I solved the problem by unhooking the USB cable from the hub, restarting my Mac (seems to be the key), replugging the cable and restarting the scanner. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you!

Fax and cancel lights are flashing



I found this solution at HP website. It worked for me. Good luck!

A Scanner Bulb Error message is received as a result of the HP LaserJet 3300mfp series product scanner’s inability to find the home reference point.
SOLUTION:
Perform the following steps to walk the scan assembly from the home base and resolve the issue.
1. Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2. Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to “walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4. Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.

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.
