Indicates warming up when you try to copy or scan anything


Lift the lid and check the scanner light when you attempt to copy or scan. If it is not lit, then that is your problem. This is a relatively old device, and uses a fluorescent lamp. These require a short warm-up time that will increase as the bulb ages and eventually the bulb will fail. At that time the warm-up indication will remain since the bulb never reaches temperature. Based on the age of the unit (first release 2004), if the lamp is bad, it would be prudent to get a new unit.

My Printer says it is warming up and it wont


i have found that in alot of cases that these units stall on scanner bulb warming because the scanner cannot find home. do you hear a noise like the carriage motor contnues to just move a little bit? what happens is this the ccd knows its home by the brightness of the refected light off of the white carriage home strip on the back side of the glass cover its reflected to a photo cell which is tripped telling the ccd its home. if the bulbs the white strip or the mirrors inside the ccd get a light dusting of dirt on them they dimm this light and the photo cell will not be triped thus creatiing this problem. with a flash light you can see if these mirrrors are fogged. clean them with a q-tip and alcohol. about 65% this fixes it.

Not working, says: scanner bulb warming up. I


One needs patience as the warmup takes a few minutes sometimes. This is to allow the lamp phosphor to stabilize.

Scanner bulb warming up


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.

Scanner bulb warm up


I have the same problem and it seems that the only way to fix this is to replace the scanner bulb. The problem is that, as far as I can tell, the bulb comes as part of the scanner assembly - and so you have to replace the whole scanner assembly. It is quite expensive - 200 to 300 dollars Canadian. There are whole machines available for $300.00 though so is it worth repairing if one cannot just buy the bulb? Ger.

Scanner error 6


Scanner errors are as follows for that model:

Scanner error # 

1 = dark find
2 = LMW temp find
3 = bulb warm up from off
4 = bulb warm up from coarse
5 = cal label find
6 = doc original find
7 = LMW final find
8 = cal label find after scan
9 = cal label find prior to standby
10 = doc original find prior to standby
11 = bulb warm up from standby

I would see if there is an original on the flatbed glass (platen), or if something is obstructing the scanner view.

If the error persists, replace the scanner
assembly or the formatter pcb

Warming up


Hi, The warming Up messge usually occures when the scanner bulb is not getting heat up for the correct temprature or the scanne bulb might be defective.. To resolve this issue follow the below instructions.. First connect the printr directly to a wall outlet as some times surge protectors will not provide the required power for the printer then this message can come up. Once the printer is directly connected to the wall outlet try to turn on the printer and check with the issue.. If the issue presists try the instructions in the below webpage.. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=c00787271&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&dlc=en&lang=en This shoule resolve the issue .. Wish u success.. Regards. Barret.
