I'm not sure if this will help or if this is the same as i had but I had been given A laserjet 2820 which keep't coing up scanner error 5 the chap that had it before me contacted hp service & was told to replace scanner unit which he did & it was ok for a while like 6 months & started then started again.
The problem he had was powered up ok till it came to scanner bulb warming up the scanner unit moves back & forth then try's to escape through the right hand side of case.
This is because it cant see the home position white strip under the scanner glass all you have to do is remove top section of the scanner unit complete with scanner glass & clean the under part of the scanner glass the white strip is located under the wide gray panel as you look down on the scanner glass with the lid up. hope this is of some use. my unit has been working for some time now

I ran into this also. Kevin's solutions is one of many I have found. I also have found to simply check the small connectors on the scan bar as some times they vibrate loose over time. Remove them and re-seat them gently, being careful not to force them.

HP Laserjet M2727nf Mfp Printer Scanner Error 8

The HP M2727 has a known issue with the scanner error 8 and bad formatters. HP has extended the warranties on this product. I suggest you contact them directly and they will most likely exchange the unit.

Officejet G95 scaner falier

Hi its normal one of two things 1 the scanner unit is being stopped or snagged as it travels
to test this lift the lid switch on an look to see if it is obstructed.
2 the lamp in the scanner unit is not putting out enough light, the machine monitors the light out put and if insufficient it gives a scanner error.
I'm sorry to say the the cost of a scanner unit normal puts the machine beyond economic repair
But google hp partsurfer this will get you parts
good luck Ian

"scanner error 5 turn of then on" reads on the display screen

Sorry but I have a bad news. Scanner error 5 or 8 means that the scanner lamp is not able to move and if it does it cannot go all the way. The printer need service, probably a new scanner. The repair might be too complicated and expensive (over $250) I suggest to get a new one. HP can provide a deal to recycle the unit and give you a credit, maybe not a lot but its something.

The problem is in the scanner section.There is too mush ash on the mirrors and scanner lamp.You can fix it just like disassembly the printer and pull out the scanner section.Open it cover and inside you'll see the mirrors.Clean the ash from mirrors using cloth which leaves no hairs.
WARNING! If you don't have a technical skills don't try to do anything.
If this not help you need to replace the scanner section.
