Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've had my printer for a couple of years and have never had any problems. Tonight it start making a grinding sound and I got an error message "Scanner failure. Turn power off then on again." I wasn't trying to scan anything, and I've turned the power off and on again several times. Always the same thing -- this heaving, grinding noise that lasts for a couple of minutes, then I get the same error message. I don't think the machine is kaputt, because I've got my phone hooked up through it and I'm able to get a dial tone (the line goes to the printer, then a line from the printer goes to the modem. The whole problem when I hooked up a new phone, but I don't know why that should have caused an upset -- the DSL filters were undisturbed. Can anyone offer any help?
Your scanner glass is get dirty and all scanners make a self diagnostic program when we turn on the printers.
At this point, you will hear a little noise from the scanner carriage lamp, witch is doing self calibrating. In this calibrating time the scanner unit "read" the white and the black levels, and the white (in your case) is not white, is quite gray because is dirty.
The solution is a very simple, but require much skill.
You must disassembly the scanner unit, remove any screw you see (you need an no. 2 phillips screwdriver) and very gently remove the upper side (with glass) from the rest of scanner unit. Please note that is several plastic fasteners to be disposed.
after you remove the glass (with a plastic frame) you get a small tissue of cotton and soaking with an windows cleaner solutions. Gently clean the BOTH surfaces of scanner glass.
For assembly follow the reverse procedure.
Beware to the glass, it has only 3 mm thickness. Don't broke!
Like I sad: simple problem, but require much skill. If you think is to difficult for you, please go to the service.
