The scanner bar, the part that moves, gets stuck at the top and renders the entire unit unusable. We have figured out how to take it apart and get in to it, but now we can't see how to fix it

There should be a belt connected to the bar and to the motor. Make sure that the belt has not come off.

When I try to make a copy the machine make a screeching noise and a blank copy comes out.


Leave the lid up when you make the copy and see if the light bar moves from left to right when copying. Check the scanner lock knob under the left hand side where the papers come out. Make sure it is not locked. Sometimes the scanners get stuck a lot and can cause blank copies. If it is stuck then you just have to remove the glass and then clean and lubricate the steel bar at the back that the whole unit rides back and forth on. Once that is doene it should work fine. Make sure to manually run the scanner bar out and back a few times so that you can get the whole rail lubricated. Do all this with the power turned off.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Scanning bar is stuck, won't slide, just clicks


Did you try unlocking the transportation locks? 
There are 2, one on the left side of the scanner and one on the top cover.

Here is a site with some pictures on how to do it.

Prints but No copy No scan


I have seen this before. The scanner does go bad on this model and the entire upper portion had to be changed.

Boot up problem


It is dust built up inside on the fan wheels. You wouldn't believe it but it is just dust. If you are mechanically and electrically inclined, take apart the housing and blow out the entire unit with compressed air especially all the vents and blower fans (my Optoma has 3). It'll work like new again. I was completely amazed.

Clicking nosie from scanner bed on epson cx5800f


I had a similar problem, the scanner bar was stuck to the far left side. Here's how I fixed it:

1)Unplug the printer, disconnect any cables/phone lines to it.
2)Lift up the entire scanner bed housing(you will see the printer ink cartridges).
3)Locate the access patch (approx 1 cm x 1 cm square) along the left edge of the scanner bed housing(this is the side that closes in, next to the keypad buttons).
4)Using a small knife blade, peel off the patch from the corners and edges(it's sticky. Save it, you can stick it back over the hole when you're done).
5)Stick a pen through the access hole, and push the scanner bar to the right, approximately 2-3 inches.
6)Now, close the scanner housing, plug in the printer, and power it on.

It should reset and re-calibrate the scanner bar. If it doesn't, repeat steps 5) and 6) a couple times, until the printer correctly performs calibration. Then, you can put the sticky patch back over the hole, and you're ready to go. Hope this helps!

Scanner bar seems stuck


You will need a torx driver and or phillips to take it apart. Just common sense and patience will get that accomplished. What you want to do then is find the cables that run from the scanner to the circuit boards, disconnect them and reconnect them. Ribbon cables need to be gently removed and be sure when replacing them you don't get any folds in them.
If the that doesn't work, then most likely the board or scan motor have failed. You may also want to look in the scanner and see if the home position sensor, which would be a U shaped sensor has popped out. The clicking is from the scan head trying to find the home ( start) position sensor and not finding it. When it works correctly it drives back until a little flag passes between the light and the photo sensor within that home sensor. Once the light is broken the scan motor shuts off and positions the lamp properly.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck


hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.

Scanner Error - Scanner Bar will not scroll across glass no scan or copies


I couldn't find anything specific to the 3210 online. Long shot, but this link is very detailed about another (very different) HP model that may just give you some ideas. Usually on this type of hp unit, once you have the front two screws out the top cover wil just hinge towards the rear. Could you post back some close up photos, hopefully we can give you some more help :)
