My HP PSC 1315 printer/scanner prints the test page every time I turn it on. A 2008 post from littlebluemuffi helped until now, but today it still printed the test pages.


Hi,

This usually happens if the printer is not aligned properly. When you replace the cartridges, it prints a colorful sheet of paper. You need to place the paper face down on scanner glass and press OK button.

This completes alignment and the printer wont print test page again.

Regards,
Sean

We have an Sharp AL 1552 photocopier. The letter L is flashing on the display screen. can not use copier whilst this is showing what does it mean and how can we rectify it?


This problem can be cause by a few different things but just check to see if unit is locked or that it want servicing. 1) If this is a new copier that you just recently unboxed or moved it for one location to another, check to see if the scanner unit is locked. To do this lower you height whilst standing in front of the machine and turn the scanner lock to unlock position. 2) if the copier unit is one that was previously being used the scanner unit may possibly need servicing. Have a service service and lubricate scanner unit.

The only things that can cause a scanner error on this unit is a complete scanner harware failure or the scanner lock. With the unit on lock the transport lock and unlock it a few times quite forcibly. Then leave it in the unlocked position and power off and on again. If the light returns then at his point I think a new printer will be needed.

SCANNER LOCKED IS ON THE DISPLAY SCREEN I HAVE CHECKED THE GREEN BUTTON UNDER THE PAPER TRAY AND THAT IS SET TO UNLOCK. WHEN I TRY TO PRINT THE DISPLAY SCREEN SAYS SCANNER ERROR AND THE SCANNER LOCKED


Hi, what you want to do is, first; (shutdown) your Scanner, next (shutdown) the computer. Disconnect the scanner, and unplug it from the outlet. Disconnect scanner cables from the computer; Note: do not change anything on the computer. Reconnect cables to the computer. Plug scanner back into the power outlet; turn on computer, turn scanner on. This may clear the (Freeze); but the (Error) might appear again. Thanks paul7of9

Samsung SCX-4720F reads "SCANNER LOCKED" and won't copy or scan.


the lock is underneath the scanner where the printed paper gets delivered. when you reach in to get a printout you more than likley have pushed it into the lock position. Once you unlock that blue button by pulling towards you, switch off the printer and again switch on the printer.

Printer will not come to ready


Have you looked at the consumables counters in the machine status area to see if any of the drums, toners, fuser, transfer belt , etc have exceeded their life ? One of the consumable items reaching the end of life will not allow you to copy or print just scan.

On some models there is a scanner head lock to keep the scanner head from moving around and breaking when transporting. Check to make sure it's not in the lock mode.

Scanner not wanting to move


Scanner lock is enabled. Scanner lock is located below scanner where pages come out after printing near the left side. turn it a quarter turn and turn copier off and on again. Should solve problem. If not, then scanner could be dragging on a loose mylar under the glass that guides the ribbon cable. To fix this, you would have to remove the glass.
