The scanner bulb is defective or does not receive enough electricity to warm up properly.
Try the following steps to try to solve the issue:
Unplug the power cord from the unit, wait around 10 seconds and plug it back.
Try to make a copy to verify if this procedure solved the issue.
If the unit is still unable to make a copy, you will need to get it serviced and scanner bulb may need a replacement.
Press the power switch to the OFF (O) position. The power switch is located on the lower, left side of the machine.
Pull the scan lock switch toward the front of the machine to unlock the Scanner.
NOTE: The scan lock switch is located on the bottom of the Scanner Module. Make sure the scan lock is completely free. It sometimes hangs at the halfway point.
Press the power switch to the ON (|) position. A 'Warming Up, Please Wait' message will be displayed on the Display Screen. Warm up time is less than 40 seconds from power ON and less than 25 seconds from the Power Saver mode.
The "scanner warming up" error is caused by dirty optics in the scanner assembly. You will need to dis-assemble the scanner and clean the mirrors with window cleaner and lint free towels and Q-tips. We have a stap by step walk thru article on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-laserjet-3330-scanner-warming-up-error/ The repair should take about 30-45 minutes to perform. The repair will require you to dis-assemble the scanner unit so be prepared to do a little work but when finished your printer will work just like new.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
Firewall Issue: Maybe your firewall is blocking
the connection to your printer/scanner. Try allowing access to all applications
related to Dell or printer or communication systems under Program
Permissions in your Firewall program.
I have never heard of a developer moving backwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???
the motor that runs it, the .... there is too much involved to mention. A developper moving backwards will spill so much toner in the machine anyway.
If you get a copy and then it goes blank, that tells me you have a problem with the SEPERATION UNIT, it may be shorting out causing the paper to rise against the drum giving you blank copies.
A blurr copy tells me there is a problem with the Scanner/Optics area. maybe the rails that the scanner run on are too dry or has a problem, the optics(mirrors) may be misaligned.
Not sure what you mean by (hanging) ??
