The cable works but the machine doesn't start.


A scanner has to warm up, if the bulb does not come on to warm up, it wont start. Check the bulb first.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

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.

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 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

Scanner not working - get error message


First, check to see if the bulb lights up, if not you have bad bulb. the bulb can be ordered separately. if the bulb is good, you have a problem with the main board.
