Does it say Scanner Failure...?

If then try these steps mentioned bellow:

Remove all the ink cartridges from the All-In-One.
Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet.
Now move the carriage (carriage is above the place wher we install ink cartridges it is a metal part which moves in a metal bar) Too and Fro till you feel the carriage is moving smoothly.
Then insert the cartridges close the access door.
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector.
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys
until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Then if it prompts the ink cartridges insert ink cartidges
Now try printing a test page or make a copy

If it still makes a loud noise and the message comes up as scanner failure, then either the scanner or the scanner machanisum is bad, you may have to replace the unit

Good Luck

Since upgrading to windows 10 I am unable to scan. Message Is Unable to write the file to this folder. Please make sure you have correct permissions to write to this folder. (CC3-107-00431005)


That sub folder is in a windows protected folder. See if you can create a folder un your libraries subdirectory and name is scanned docs. Then tell the scanner to send it to that folder

Sounds like you're having a problem with the automatic document feeder. The scanner is continuing to scan but the paper is not advancing as it should during the first part of the infeed. Check to see if something is inside retarding the path of the scanned document. Or it could be worn rollers in the ADF.

I can't get my HP potosmart C6180 ALL IN ONE PRINTER TO SCAN/COPY OR FAX WITHOUT GETTING A SCANNER FAILURE MESSAGE SAYING UNABLE TO SCAN,COPY OR SEND A FAX


Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg

Unable to send, copy or send fax


Sounds like the scanner bulb is burnt out or it's not able to move the scanner sled.
It should be saying "scanner error" as well. (and I think you meant unable to scan, copy or send fax)
No fix unfortunately other than getting a replacement unit (which I believe now is the 8500 premiere)

If you need a replacement, your timing is good, they are $200 off right now, and selling for $299.

Your unit as it stands still makes a good printer and will receive faxes, and you CAN send a fax as long as you do it from the computer.

MFC-490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer: how to send a fax...


Most of these will send a fax without even using the PC. Just connect a phone line, place the document in the proper position, usuallu print side up on newer models, and push the fax button, it should prompt you for the number. Once dialed,, the paper will feed into the scanner portion of the multi, and you will see it on the menu bar saying sending page 1, 2 etc, after if is done sending, it will dial and connect, yu should hear the typical noise a fax makes. then it will say fax sent or end or something similar, that's it, try sending one to a friend to make sure it's working. Now some simpler machines require you to open the scanner portion and lay the paper down in the glass manually, mine does it both ways. In that case just skip the feeding part, and dial wait for it to scan and send.

Copies leaves lines when put through the feeder,but not on the glass .......have cleaned and sprayed air can everywhere I can think of The Hp Printer is HP 3055 All in One printer


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers.  See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything.  Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers.  As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer.  Now you can reach the other side and clean that.

There is another way to clean the rollers.  Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution.  Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine.  Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.

Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.

If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).

Thankyou,

Will not scan


With the power off & the machine unplugged, remove the scan glass & move the scanner a few inches from "home" position. Plug in & turn on machine. Does the scanner return to home position? If not, you either have a bad scanner motor or scanner cable. I'll look for you to post the results of the scanner drive test.
