    I "inherited" this machine and was just starting to learn how to use the scanner. I was in the process of several sucessful scans and then I got a scanning error, "cannot connect to PC"!? From that point on I couldn't print either. I am NOT very technical but I decided to remove and reinstall the drivers which got my printing back but not the scanner. I also made a color copy so I know the scanner light can "move" however sometimes when I shut it down and power back up, there is a clicking noise as if a gear is stuck. I've searched the web for suggestions including directly plugging the power cord in to the wall rather than a power strip but nothing has changed. Any help is most welcome.

    my printer says scanner failure i turned it off several times and it continues to do the same thing

  • Mike H Aug 29, 2012

    I had this problem with mine - same clicking noise, same error message. I tried the power off/power on thing multiple times, too, with no luck. It seemed like the scanner light bar was trying to move all the way to the right and that's what was causing it to click. On a whim, I powered down, stood the printer up on its left side (so gravity would help keep the scanner head from going all the way to the right), and powered on. It powered up fine and works again! Your mileage may vary, but it's worth a try...

What are the error codes on my printer,5010 & 6100?


The 5010 error indicates a scanner error. The scanner unit cannot detect the home position, or the scanner unit warming-up is not done properly at power-on. On the LCD, "Scanner is not operating correctly." is displayed.
The 6100 error indicates a logic board error. The check sum value is incorrect in the ROM check at hard-power-on.
Fixing these errors is more expensive than replacing the printer. Sorry.

Thanks, my HP LaserJet 9000MFP is requesting for cable check it say check cables. check scanner lock. cycle power


This error is an indication that the system is unable to move the scanner. This usually happens on new units when someone forgets to unlock the scanner before switching machine. If the printer has worked up till not and just started doing it then there is a good chance that the scanner has failed and will require service. If you just moved the machine then check the scanner locks and make sure the cabling is all connected.

Workcentre M20i Scanner Locked, I tried flipping the switch still doesn't work.


I am not sure which switch you are talking about.
The machine has a power switch, and a scanner lock switch.
The scanner lock switch is located in the area where you take the copies out of the exit area, it is just above the knuckles of your hand. If you lean over look under the bottom of that scanner, there is a green sliding selector switch with a picture of a pad lock. Power off the machine, then move it to the unlock side. Then turn on the machine, see how it works ok.
Good luck.

Readoout says


1. Turn machine OFF and unplug electrical cord from wall or power strip.
2. Turn ON printer without the power cord plugged in (this will discharge the power capaciter in the printer).
3. Plug electrical power back in and turn on printer...
4. It should have reset.

Another possibility:
The scanner arm has the physical "lock" switch in the locked possition. Turn OFF printer and move the switch to the unlock position. Turn on printer.
This switch is for whenever the printer is moved to a different location and will protect the scanning bar.

Hope this helps!

When I turn on the power to the printer, the print carriage cycles to the right as normal then carriage sticks and begins to continually chatter.....at the same time the light bar on the scanner trys to...


There is usually a sensor on one side or the other of the carriage. When you power up the machine, the carriage will be moved to that end, setting off the sensor. Then it will move back and forth to test carriage motion. If the end sensor is faulty, the carriage will still attempt to move until it triggers the sensor, but when it gets to the extreme end, the motor will continue to attempt to move it, causing the chatter. After a time, it will stop with an error message.

Look at the carriage where the cartridges are, and you should see some kind of tab or ear on it. If it's broken, then you may get the symptoms I mentioned above. Also if you can see the sensor, make sure that it's not broken or moved out of place.

Visioneer One Touch 8700 USB Scanner lock mechanism problems


Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but I encountered the same error and only to find that I plugged in a wrong power adapter so it didn't have enough power to advance the scanner head (My moving caused this mixup). Check your power adapter OUTPUT is 12V (or whatever is specified on the scanner itself, usually found on the label on the bottom or rear).

Trouble shooting


The "car sound" could be an indication that the scanner is locked. Check the lock switch on the bottom of the scanner. Move the switch back and forth a few times and then leave it in the locked position. Another possibility is that you are scanning heavy items such as books. If too much weight is placed on the scanner glass, then pressure could be enough to prevent the scanning element from moving as it should.

The code 201 sometimes can indicate a power issue...meaning the scanner is not getting enough power. Try connecting the usb cable to a different port on the computer (preferrably directly to the computer and not through a USB hub).
