52 scanner error means yoy got got an error with the scan assy, it could be many problems. If it not helps with turn off /turn on, try reset the printer. Turn off power press and hold * and #, turn on power, wait 20 sec and release the buttons. If printer not goes to ready, disconnect power cord when printer initialize and turn off power switch. reconnect power cord and turn on power switch. If you get the printer to ready state, upgrade firmware.

The device has experienced an internal hardware error. Recommended Action

  1. Turn off the power by using the power switch, wait at least 30 seconds, and then turn on the power and wait for the device to initialize.
  2. If the error is still unresolved, contact Hewlett-Packard for technical support to troubleshoot the problem. Call HP for telephone support

Scanner error 52 turn off and turn on


Sir/Madam

Unfortunately there's no troubleshoot with a 52 error. As it implies it's usually the scanner bad. It sits up top- under the top cover. It connects to the Formatted Board on the left side. and there's 2 connector s at the scanner itself.

So if Your HP Printer is Under warranty ( 12 Months ) Then I Suggest You Go To Official authorized HP shop for your HP Printer Problem and Troubleshoot or Go To Official HP Printer Website To Update HP Printer Software and Driver,Or You Update It From Official Below URL Link:

52 scanner error. Turn off thenb on


52 is an internal scanner hardware error.
Unplug printer, wait 30 seconds, plug it in and power up.
Problem still there...make sure printer is plugged into wall outlet, not surge protector.
If error persists you will have to get the laser/scanner assembly replaced.
We arn't talking about the scanner/copier assembly at the top of the printer. This is the internal laser/scanner that is used for all your printing.

Everytime i try to print from computer code 52.00 comes up what does it mean


The 52 error code indicates that there is a problem with the laser/scanner or the engine control board inside the printer. Sometimes re-seating the connections between corrects this issue. More than likely however, the laser scanner probably needs to be replaced. This is not a end user replacable part and takes a bit of know how.

HP Laser Jet 4 Plus error code 52 What do I do now?


A 52 error is a Scanner failure. Do you hear a "whirring" sound when you get the error?

That's the sound of the scanner motor running amuck.

You're probably going to have to replace the Laser/Scanner assembly or the DC Controller which controls the Laser/scanner motor.
