Message on screen reads: "scanner error 5 turn off and on" turned copier off and on, also unplugged it. No success... WE do not scanner on this machine - only make copies. Please aadvise... Thank You


This sounds like a Scanner/Flatbed Problem. This series of printers have a known problem with this component. The scanner is failing to initialize itself. The scanner does need to be changed by an Authorized HP Warranty Repair Facility. It is possible that it may be covered under an HP Extended Warranty program. See repair information VIA posted Link.

Printer is showing "error: 0xf0af0001 Reset Power". I have unplugged and then plugged in printer multiple times and printer comes ok for about 30 seconds and then the same error message appears will all...

last month i had same problem and i contacted customer care and i got this solution. And this works.

Step 1:

Perform a partial reset.

Please perform the partial reset using the following steps:

b. Press and hold the "#" and 3 button on the front panel keypad.

c. While still holding the buttons down, plug the power cord back in. Release the buttons after the all-in-one begins to initialize.

If the issue persists, follow Step 2.

Step 2:

Perform a semi-full reset.

a. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.

b. Press and hold the "#" and 6 button on the front panel keypad.

c. While still holding the buttons down, plug the power cord back in. Release the buttons after the all-in-one begins to initialize.

HP6310 does not scan or copy using flatbed glass


Try connecting the printer to a direct wall outlet and not to a surge protector

try a partial reset

for this
you need to unplug the power cable from the printer
press and hold the # and the 3 buttons on the front panel and then replug the cable,
do not release the fingers until you see the LCD lit up.

let the printer initialize itself and then try making a black and white copy
if it makes a copy ,it should definitely scan now.
for any clarifications or assistance ,feel free to contact me.
