Probably the scanner can't determine his position because of a "dirty" scannerglass. How you can clean the glass is explained on te hp site.

I had a same problem. Did remove all the screws, from the back than top than side. Got to the part where the noise came from. there is a white sponge for the unwanted ink. I found that blocking the axle for ink rack. Removed it. Since that no rattle noise.

I don't have a manual and I don't know how to replace my ink


Hello thanks for using Fixya

The cartridges are under the scanner and stay off to the right side of the unit except when printer or when you lift the scanner unit cover while the unit on. If the cartridges returns to the right, close the scanner unit cover and then reopen it. If the cartridge carrier doesn't move, make sure that the unit is turned on.The black ink goes on the right side.

Hp 6110 scanner making noise i can do any thing else because of that scanner light doesn't move, move little on scanner glass then come back on right hand side and keep making noise some time i can see...


If you cleaned the scanner glass before the problem began, it sounds like you messed up the homing strip underneath the glass. The scanner is trying and trying to find its home position and it can't. There is no way to disable the scanner to use the other functions. This is the downside to All-in-One machines. If one function (most commonly the scanner) stops working the entire machine won't work. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I always caution people against buying all-in-one machines for this reason. It sounds like you'll need to buy a new printer, unless your printer is magically still under warranty you could call HP and ask what they can do for you. They'll probably just recommend you buy a new machine anyway.

Unit makes a clicking sound at end of the power-up sequence


Sounds like the scanning mirror might be locked - during shipping, the mirror is locked to prevent damage. Look around the back or the underside of the unit and look for a slider with a lock/unlock picture on it. Slide it to unlock and the mirror should be free to move.

Epson Stylus NX105 scanner started clicking when turned on...


I dismantled the printer because i've been having the same issue. It recedes to the right and begins clicking because it is at the end of the track. For some reason the scanner isn't registering that it is at the end of the track and keeps persisting making the gears jam up on the other end because they obviously can't move any further. Any suggestions as to how to fix, or master reset?

Making a loud noise when the paper is feeding.


This is what the HP website says about noises in the 1610..
Unexpected Noises s.gif s.gif
Issue Unexpected noise (clicking, thumping, grinding, squealing, and so forth) from an HP all-in-one can be caused by a problem with the ink carriage or the scanner. Solution Follow the steps below in the order presented to determine the source and resolution for the noise. Step one: Checking the scanner This step applies only to products equipped with a flatbed scanner.
  1. Open the scanner cover.
  2. With the lid open, press the Start Copy button to make a copy. The scanner mechanism should move down the glass.
  3. If the scanner mechanism does not move and noise is present, contact HP. If the scanner mechanism moves without noise, continue with Step two below.
Step two: Checking for paper feed problems and carriage blocks Click here (buu03110) (in English) for more information on paper or carriage jams. Step three: Service the product If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. So it sounds like it needs to be serviced which could get expensive. I've looked all over the web for you & Keep finding the same answer. Sorry I can't come up with a better solution for you.

Scanner lockup


Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One.
Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet.
Now move the carriage (carriage is the one which holds the cartridge) Too and Fro till you feel the carriage is moving smoothly.(You can apply little more pressure if it does not move easily)
Then insert the cartridges close the access door.
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector.(If possible connect it to a different power outlet)
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys
until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Now try printing a test page or make a copy

If it still makes a loud noise and the message comes up as scanner failure, then either the scanner or the scanner machanisum is bad, you may have to replace the unit

Good Luck

Scanner error message hp laserjet 3030


This problem has to do with the scanner mirror. You may hear a grinding sound, also. The reason it does this is because the scanner bulb cannot find 'home', so it keeps trying to find it. Well, it uses the mirrors to reflect on another object inside the scanner to tell it when to stop. The mirror on top of the right next to the scanner bulb may need to be cleaned. This works every time for me, except the same problem always comes back sooner or later.
how to clean-
1.unplug your scanner
2.notice the glass covering on the left side, it can be removed with a Phillips screwdriver. Unscrew the plastic surrounding the glass and then remove the glass covering.
3.Plug the scanner back in and wait for the scanner to move left and then unplug it before it starts moving to the right. Repeat this until scanner bulb is all the way on the left of the machine.
-an alternative method-
with the glass covering removed, use a pair of pliers to move the small belt that moves the scanner bulb. keep moving it until the scanner bulb is all the way on the left of the machine.
4.With the scanner bulb assembly in reach, grab a Q-tip and gently clean the mirror that is just to the right of the bulb. You might want a flashlight to see the dirt and dust.
5. Put the glass covering back on.
6. Plug in the scanner.
At first to me it seemed like it wouldn't work, but it does.
Hope it helps. Reply back if it does.

My printer will not print. It is a Hewlett-Packard all in one psc 2175v model, it just comes on and makes a clicking sound and then it reads, scanner failure and recommends that I turn it off and then on...


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.
