Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > GRINDING, NOT SCANNING

GRINDING, NOT SCANNING

The Annoyance:

My scanner makes a grinding noise and then nothing happens. It was working fine yesterday, I swear.

The Fix:

That was yesterday; today you have a solution. My hunch is that you (or someone in your office) inadvertently flipped the scanner's locking mechanism, which keeps the scanner's light bar in place for shipping. It's usually located on the back of the scanner, near the on/off switch; if not, check the scanner's manual.
