Question about HP 4570C Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning bar light

When I turn off my HP scanjet 4570 the scanning bar light does not turn off. The only way I can get the light to turn off is to unplug the machine from the power source. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how can I fix this? Thanks

    The light that doesn't go off is the scanner lamp underneath the glass platten. The lamp stays on after the scanner has been powered off.

Do you mean the green power light? I have the same brand and a similar scanner, and the light does always stay on. I think it is a normal function of the scanner. It may not be a good idea to unplug the scanner. I am going to be a bit more research so that we can both be reassured that this is normal.
I'll get back to you.

    On your front panel do you have a utton that looks like an incomplete circle with a straight line running from the center through the top? Sort of like a clock? This is a power save button and according to what I am reading you can push it to turn off the scanner lamp/the LEDs and the LCD. I hope this helps. It is worth a try. I am going to try it on mine.

    Please let me know and rate this solution thank you so much for using FIXYA

I have connected the TMA to my hp scanjet and I have put a slide in it, but when I scan it, all I get is a scan of the whole glass and the slide is black.

When scanning slides and negatives the scanner lid lights up so light passes through the slides and negatives and the image is picked up by the sensor.
If the image of the whole glass is black then most likely the lamp in the lid is faulty.

Makes grinding noises, refuses to scan; WinXP

take a look on the underside of the scanner. there may be a switch that goes from lock to unlock. try to move it to lock and back into unlock. this lock is usually used to lock the bar from moving during shipping. if this got moved back to lock or bumped while you had it turned over, the scanner will not allow the bar to move.. try this first.
