What you will see
The following scenario occurs when trying to copy from the Auto Document Feeder (ADF):
- The ADF tray immediately lowers.
- The printer posts 843.18 scanner error (see screenshot below; note: click it to enlarge).
- Device then reboots and disables scanner.
- The error appears only when using the ADF. The machine copies from the flatbed with no problem.
|843.18 scanner error appears before the printer reboots and disables the scanner.|
NOTE: The issue most likely started after replacing ADF maintenance kit.
Before calling for service, check whether the ADF Autocomp is installed and fully seated. See procedure below:
Open the ADF and remove the green cover.
Verify that the Autocomp is latched properly onto shaft. See images below.
If the Autocomp is not properly latched onto the shaft OR should the error persist even if the Autocomp is properly latched, contact Lexmark Technical Support to set up service for the printer.
