Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Scanner Faliure When Printer/Scanner/Fax is Initializing, the electric motor that moves the scanner light continuously pulls the scanner light assembly towards it even when it can not go any further. Motor pulls continuously in same pattern also of start, stop, start, stop, ...eventually it will turn the light off and stop moving while the information display reads, "Scanner Faliure. Turn Power Off then On again." After turning off and on several times, same occurence. Please help with any advice.

Hi tshark92356,
unplug the power cord and try connecting directly to wall outlet and dont plug the power cord to the printer.
press and hold tha ON button on the printer 1 min and plug it back, it should resolve the issue.

What does initializing mean


Initializing means that the printer is starting up and getting all functions ready such as fax, print engine, scanner. If your printer is freezing with just initializing on the screen then there is a problem. If you have added any extra memory to the printer remove and try to restart. Most common failure is the formatter itself.

CM2320 won't complete startup process and receive scanner error 5


The scanner has only 1 motor and when initializing moves the lamp to the end, where there is a photocell to detect home position. Possibly bad sensor or dirt on tracks which interferes with the movement. Clean the rails with alcohol may correct the problem.

Fail to initializing


The fail to initialize is typically a problem with the document scanner...but not always. here is a quick test you can try. Turn the unit off then power it on again. Slightly lift the copy lid as the unit goes through warm up mode...pay attention to the light color emitting form the scammer. it starts to blink red, then changes to a bright white IF the scanner is working properly. IF the scanner is NOT working properly the scanner stays RED during the warm up.

HP Laserjet 3330 Multifunction monochrome printer,copier,scan and fax. This machine will warm up, and after it reads "scanner lamp warming", the scanner lite lights up, the carriage moves back and forth,...


Hello,

This type of problem is usually caused by dirty mirrors in the scanner. After a few years of use the mirrors and lenses in the unit will get a fine coating of dust particles on them. The dust interferes with the scanner initializing the optics. When this happens the unit displays the Scanner warming up message on the screen and keeps trying to move the scanner assembly to get a good reading from the pickup. To solve the problem you will need to disassemble the scanner portion and clean all of the mirrors with window cleaner and a soft cloth or q-tip. To get dis-assembly guides just do a google search for the 'scanner warming up' error.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Scanner faliure


the cables connected internally to the scanner unit had gone short some where in between you have to check it manually by opening the device .and then remove the cables and replace them with a same length cable.you can get the cables from any electronic shop who keeps printer assessories.and then it will work properly as normal.
