This darn model is infamous for this problem. You may not resolve it completely...I have seen this numerous times, and despite recommended fixes, nothing has usually cured it, but try this anyway:

Scanner Error - Power On Power Off


Hello,

The "scanner warming up" error is usually caused by dirty glass or mirrors in the scanner assembly. Here is a link to a step by step guide that tells how to open the scanner unit and clean the optics to clear the error.

Scanner bulb warnning


Hello,

The 'scanner warming up' error is caused by dirty scanner optics. What happens is the scanner initializes the lamp and starts reading the scanner pickup waiting for the light to get to a certain brightness level. When the optics get dirty from dust or smoke then the light getting to the scanner pickup is reduced so the unit thinks the scanner bulb has not reached the correct brightness so it says wait. What you will need to do is dis-assemble the top portion and clean the scanner optics. We have a step by step guide to do this procedure posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-laserjet-3330-scanner-warming-up-error/ This should get you back going again.

I hope this helps you out, if so please rate our solution.

Will not print. Message says


Your scanner bulb is not warming up. It would cost more to repair it than buying a new printer.

Not working, says: scanner bulb warming up. I


One needs patience as the warmup takes a few minutes sometimes. This is to allow the lamp phosphor to stabilize.

Scanner bulb warming up


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.

Scanner bulb warm up


I have the same problem and it seems that the only way to fix this is to replace the scanner bulb. The problem is that, as far as I can tell, the bulb comes as part of the scanner assembly - and so you have to replace the whole scanner assembly. It is quite expensive - 200 to 300 dollars Canadian. There are whole machines available for $300.00 though so is it worth repairing if one cannot just buy the bulb? Ger.

Scanner error 6


Scanner errors are as follows for that model:

Scanner error # 

1 = dark find
2 = LMW temp find
3 = bulb warm up from off
4 = bulb warm up from coarse
5 = cal label find
6 = doc original find
7 = LMW final find
8 = cal label find after scan
9 = cal label find prior to standby
10 = doc original find prior to standby
11 = bulb warm up from standby

I would see if there is an original on the flatbed glass (platen), or if something is obstructing the scanner view.

If the error persists, replace the scanner
assembly or the formatter pcb
