When I try to scan or copy something on my CX7800 it prints all black, as if the scanner is not picking up anything. The light is working and moving. The glass is clean. I can print from my PC. I am at my wits end. It worked the last time I used it (few weeks back), but not now. Any ideas?
The real problem is that the light bulb in the flat bed has burned out. After 2 years or more this is normal......
To verify that it is the lower bulb, scan a slide or film, notice that the light bulb turns on in the lid.
This is easy to fix with a little skill with a phillips screw driver after getting the replacement part. Some patience with sticky tape and remembering to put the parts back togther correctly.
REALLY VERY SIMPLE
