SOURCE: Scanner - memory is full

A KM-2550 has 64 MB RAM built in. I believe less than 30 of it is for image storage. You may be able to lower your scan resolution. 
Best solution is to add more memory. Look for a Kyocera compatible 100 pin dimm (don't buy from the manufacturer). It will read 16 MB to 256 MB sticks. You have to take out 6-8 screws holding on the part of the back the sticks out on the upper left. Make sure after installing you print a status page to make sure the memory was recognized.

SOURCE: Problem with scanning both from the auto feeder and from scanner glass

this is what HP has to say

This document applies to all HP product models. Issue When the product is turned on or in the middle of an operation, an unexpected noise occurs, such as clicking, thumping, or grinding. Blinking lights and error codes might accompany the noise. NOTE: Noises can be caused by a number of things. This document focuses on isolating, identifying, and resolving known causes of product noises. Solution Noises are subjective and can be difficult to describe. Some noises are normal to the operation of the product and might include the following:

  • The product might make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage moves around on the right or left side of the product while cleaning the ink cartridges. This is normal when a product is turned on, before and after printing, after a product has been on standby for some time, after replacing an ink cartridge, or in the middle of a large print job.
  • During a print job, the movement of rollers, gears, carriage, and paper (paper feed and ejection) creates some noise.
  • During a print job, if the product is printing in the fast or draft mode, the noise level might be higher than when using the best or normal mode.
  • At the end of the print job, a louder clicking noise occurs as the paper is pushed to the output tray.
  • At the end of a print job, a noise emanates from the left or right side of the product as the pens are capped. The product might try to do this a couple of times.
Abnormal noises are a symptom of a problem. The most accurate way to determine the origin of a noise is to isolate where it comes from and when it occurs. Use the following steps to try to isolate the noise issue. NOTE: Error codes might indicate the source of the noise. Make a note of any error code or blinking lights that appear. Step one: Check for loose or broken parts
  1. Raise the cover of the product.
  1. Check inside for loose or broken parts.
  2. If there are broken parts, the product needs to be serviced.
  3. Step two: Make sure that accessories are installed correctly
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Remove the power cord from the back of the product and unplug the power cord from the power source.
  3. Check any accessories (duplexer, envelope feeder, automatic document feeder (ADF)) to make sure each is installed and seated correctly.
  4. Plug the power cord into the back of the product and plug the power cord back into the power source.
  5. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  6. If the noise still persists, remove each accessory one at a time to try to determine if the noise is associated with a single accessory or a combination.
  7. If the noise stops when a specific accessory is removed, that part might need to be replaced. If possible, exchange the accessory with a known good one or a new one to determine if the noise is associated with the accessory. NOTE: If the product is fully functional with the accessory in place, the noise might be normal.
  8. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
Step three: Check connection with computer Turn off the computer to determine if the computer is the source of the noise. If the noise persists, proceed to Step four. If the noise stops when the computer is turned off, try to isolate any issues with connectivity:
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the product.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and from the back of the product.
  4. Wait a couple of minutes to allow static to be discharged.
  5. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and plug the power cord into the back of the product.
  6. Connect the product to a different USB port.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  9. If the noise persists, service the product.
Step four: Check for a paper jam Paper jams can prevent the internal components of the product from moving, which can create unusual noises.
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  3. Remove the rear access door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the product by pulling it out through the rear access door and then securely replace the rear access door.
    1. If a paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the product, raise the product cover, carefully remove the paper jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
    NOTE: Remove any paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the product when removing a jam from the front of the product.
    1. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product.
    2. Reload the paper in the paper tray.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. Try to print. If a jam is cleared and the product prints, but the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step five: Make sure that the carriage moves freely
    1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the product.

    1. Make sure that the ink cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to prevent it from moving.
    2. Close the product cover and reconnect the power cord.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step six: Plug the product into a wall outlet
    If the product is plugged into an uninterruptible power supply, that source might make a beeping or whistling noise.
    1. Unplug the power cord from any power strips or surge protectors.
    2. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step. If the noise stops when plugged directly into a wall outlet, the power strip or surge protector might not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product and might need to be replaced.
    Step eight: Service the product If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

    Have you tried lowering the resolution of the scanned document?

    SOURCE: Not scanning or copying when using the ADF on HP laserjet 3055

    Based on the assumption it's mechanically ok, check the cable connection between the document feeder and the base, if damaged or worked look it can cause errors. If it is a sensor error, check for a small bit of paper or even a staple from a prior jam.

    Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

    Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
    1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
    2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
    3. Double-click twain_32.
    4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
    5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
    NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
    6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
    7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
    8. Open Home Center Software:
    a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
    b. Scan a document.

    Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: .

    I hope this helps.

    A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

    To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

    1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

      Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

    2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

      The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

    3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

      By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

    4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

      Make any last minute changes.

    5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

      Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

    6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

      Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

    To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

    The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

    Please check the original software disk that accompanied the scanner. You should have the option to install a twain or twain32 driver at the least, which would allow you to scan from within a graphics program (photoshop, or even paint).
