Question about Ricoh Aficio IS420 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Dark area on scanner output

I bought a used scanner off Ebay. It is a Ricoh IS420. The very first scan that I made was excellent, but after that the scans have gone downhill. There is a dark area on the "top" part of the scan. It is not a line, but a grayed out area. The rest of the text seems faded out

You need a new CIS array, or the lamp is going bad. With all due respect buying office equipment on ebay is like shooting craps.

Ricoh Aficio 1027 stopped working


You were able to scan okay before? If you can print but not scan, generally it's a firewall or permission problem. You could try creating an exception for the Ricoh in your firewall software.

The folder that you scan to hasn't moved, has it? Is the path still exactly the same? Try turning off your firewall and/or anti-virus software and see if you can scan then.
