Scanner bulb warming up

When I start the machine it constantly says scanner bulb warming up and the bulb moves back and forth one centimeter. It used to do this less frequently but now it won't stop.

Can you shed any insight what may be going on and how to fix it?

    My printer just says bulb warming up, but the bulb doesn't move. I'm thinking the bulb is just going out. Is it hard to replace?

    Mine is doing the SAME thing and then it makes this grinding sound. These are the crappiest printers I have ever seen. I have had it under warranty and they have had to send replacement parts twice and finally replaced with a refurbished unit, which now is doing the same thing.....FRUSTRATED I will never buy this brand of printer again.

The cables connected internally to the scanner unit had gone short some where in between you have to check it manually by opening the device .and then remove the cables and replace them with a same length cable.you can get the cables from any electronic shop who keeps printer assessories.

I have a 324 singer memomatic. Carriage is stuck solid and won't move. It has been stored for a long time. Is it possible to get the carriage off in this instant if so how?


First are you referring to all internal carriage working parts or just bobbin workings ? I just got done last nite with a Kenmore that was sitting who knows how long and was completely froze internally and bobbin area covered with green muck . After cleaning that up still froze ,oiled any and all mechanical points and rocking back and forth about to give up ,found one more location on back of machine ,oiled heavy and began turning very hard over and over and became loose enough for motor to turn . So don't give up . Good Luck .

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

LSU error SAMSUNG SCX 4725FN


Laser Scanner Unit or LSU is what writes to the surface of the drum. The glass above the cartridge in the machine may be dirty. The mirror motor in the LSU could be bad or needs to be cleaned to spin better. The Laser diode may be faulty.

This is not a user-serviceable issue. You will need to contact Samsung for a service. You can do it online via Samsung website or contact the vendor to see who will they appoint to service the printer to, especially if it is still under warranty.

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
