    so i have the printer for about a year and a half :) i wouldn't mind about the noise it's just that because of that it got stucked this morning it got stucked again :| and i put it back i coulnd't open the hole scanner because i don't know how. i just lift the back part and pushed the guide rail to it's original position...

    i'm afraid the if i try to open in the front i'll break it. because it's plastic. i tryed about 2 times and... i don't think it's wise... if i only knew how it was made how to disassemble it..

    Scanner bar is stuck. On power-up belt moves but bar does not. It appears the belt is just disconnected from the scanner bar, but how is this scanner disassembled?

Are you saying that when physically looking at the scanner light bar, that the light bar is cocked at an angle? Where exactly is it stuck? left side, middle, right side of the glass (when facing the unit)? ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

    Well, from the picture you gave, it looks like you will need to be handy with a screwdriver.
    Taking it apart is a breeze, so is putting it back together.

    Hopefully no plastic parts broke and all you have to do is resnap the guide rail back in place.

    Let me know how it goes.

    See if you can provide a nice clear picture shot of the guide rail scratching.

    After looking at the pictures, if you wanted to, you could gently and I mean gently uncrease the distorted band. It probably doesn't need much straightening and certainly can't be flattened too much since the wires inside are quite delicate.
    You could live with the slight noise of the band touching the glass. I've seen this problem and if a simple attempt at rebending didn't work, I just left it alone. It would take a long long time for the band to wear against smooth glass.

My printer scanner , it will not scan the size of the paper scanned

This is common, there are two possible things going on. Under print preferences try to set the margins to zero. If you are looking for an exact size copy then you need a copy button on the "all in one printer." If you are just looking for a size you can use without reduction then the second thing to do is to try and define the scan aria. Many HP scanners will do a pre scan, you can then move the dotted lines around to define the text aria and then scan to PDF or some other way to save it and then print.
If the scanner is not recognized try restarting it or varifing that you are on the same network.

These problems occurs when the scanner is unable to take a copy of the image that you are trying to scan.You can go to settings and run a scanner motor test on the scanner.Just check out the results of the scanner motor test.If the scanner motor test results are positive,then please clen the scanner bed with a cotton cloth and then perform a power drain on the printer.
Now in order to perform a power drain you need to keep the printr powered on n unplug the power cable from the back of the printer.And then press the power button down for 30-50 secs n then release it.Then plug in the power cable n turn on the printer. The scaner will respond. But if the scanner motor test results are negative, then the scanner needs to be fixed by a hardware technician

Please try this approach:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the printer.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  3. Close the printer cover.
  4. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Close the printer cover.
  6. Load some paper.
  7. Try to scan or make a copy again to verify that the problem is fixed.
I hope this helps.

Scan platform is located above paper cover. Its like long rectangle with wite stripe and scaner. In some cases it falls down and the documents from feeder cant came trough.
Push it up back, and should work.

If doesnt works, you have bad main pcb fault.

Scanner bar will not move to scan the paper to be copied.

a piece of plastic locks your scanner in place, it is under the scanner up above where the copies come out. It turns 90 degrees.
Maybe some one turned and locked it.
Good luck
