Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I turn on the device it will do a self test, after it will attempt to copy (not told to copy just automatically tries) I then get a "scanner failure" message please turn power off, then on again........could the copy button be damaged, or is the scanner faulty......any help please as this wont allow me to use any other part of the machine, can we bypass the copy, scan, and just have the card reader and printer working.....?
Hi Simoandson, The scanner failure message usually occures when the scanner bulb is not getting heated properly or the scanner bulb is defective. We can check with the issue by connecting the printer direcly to wall outlet and then lift the scanner lid and press scan or copy button and check for the scanner bulb is lit and scanner machinisum is moving fine under the scanner bed.. There is also a Firmware update released by HP that can be downloaded and installed to fix the issue: Here is the link: ========= http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=oj-14037-3&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=90809&os=228&lang=en ======= Just click on the link and in the download webpage click on the download only button and select save to save the download to the computer and once the file is saved make sure that the printer is turn on and connected fine and click on the file to install the firmware update to the unit If the issue still presists try to performe the steps in the below webpage: =========== http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00787271&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1138346&dlc=en&lang=en ======== Hope this will help you to fix the issue Regards, Barret.
