Printer problem When I turn on our all in one printer it immediately says "scanner failure". How do I clear it and what is the problem? Is it necessary to be connected to a computer? Our printer is not currently connected to the computer and worked okay for a couple of months.

Re: printer problem

There is some problem with your integraed scanner in office all in one. But your printer should work fine.


But you may not be able to sned or receive faxes as it needs the scanner to be functional.


If you can lubricate the rails of the scanner assembly, it become moving again.


Otherwise get it serviced.

"I know I'm a biot late to the party here but I just worked on an M3027 with that same error. It turned out to be the scanner head lock was in the locked state. Tried unlocking with the machine still on which didn't clear the error but after a power-cycle with the head unlocked the error was cleared. Nice simple and free solution!"

How do I solve the "scanner failure power off and on again" message for an h.p. 6110 officjet all-in-one printer/scanner/fax?

Hi Paul,

Scanner Failure usually results in Hardware Failure. However there is one step you can try. Try connecting the printer directly to wall outlet or any other power outlet and the issue should be resolved.

There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur. Find your printer error accordingly as below and may solve your printer problem.

1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

Hope this help.
