It will eventually reset itself, usually after being unplugged for an hour or so, but the error will return regularly. There are several posts all over the place on this error, but it seems that it is seldom solved, without replacing the scanner unit (entire top of machine) - which is obviously not worth the hassle/expense. Just seems to be a common problem with this family of machines

SOURCE: laserjet 3330 firmware upgrade problem

Sorry, but these models are infamous for the "Scanner error". Firmware, seldom, if ever solves this problem. Temporary solution is to turn machine off/on, wait for scanner to "walk out" (move to the left), turn off/on again, wait for it to move again. Do this three to 4 times and then let it complete it's warm up. The error will return frequently, this is just a workaround.
I'm a fan of HP, but this family of machines had major issues.
Hope this helps a bit :)

Hi! I will be glad to assist you in this issue.

Usually all you have to do is initialize hard disk even if you do not have one. Just turn off the printer. Turn the printer back on and when the memory starts to count hold down the menu key until all three lights come on. When all three lights are on solid release the menu button and press the arrow back button and initialize disk should appear in the menu. Just hit the check mark button again and it should take care of the problem.

SOURCE: HP laserjet 3330 keeps flashing scanner error

Hi,
Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.

Wait approximately for 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to "walk out"(move to ready position)and then quickly remove the plug again.

Repeat step 1 and 2,three or four times until the head (scanner lamps)moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.

Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.
If it does not resolve the issue or the issue returns,upgrade the product firmware may help.Visit this url http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=72628&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=66359&taskId=135
and then upgrade the firmware.

How to reset printer setting


Turn off the HP LaserJet 2840.


Press and hold down the "Enter" and "*" keys on the printer's control panel, and turn the printer back on.


Hold the "Enter" and "*" keys until you see the "Permanent Storage Init" message on the device control panel. Release the two keys to perform the NVRAM initialization. The NVRAM initialization takes just a few seconds, and the "Permanent Storage Init" message remains on the printer's display until the initialization is complete.


Ensure that the "Ready" message on the printer's control panel is visible. You can now connect the printer to your computer and print your documents. If the "Ready" message is not displayed and your printer is still stuck in a loop, turn off the printer and contact HP customer support (see Resources).


  • To reset an HP 2840 from your computer, open the HP Toolbox program, click "Device Settings," click "Service," click "Restore" in the Resets section and then click "OK" to confirm the action and restore the printer to its factory defaults.

My hp laserjet 3330mfp reports a scanner bulb is warming up and it never goes off. I have tried to unplug then plug back in. The printer works fine.


Here is how to cold reset the machine. also I added some addtiona options below as well.

1 Unplug (or turn off) the product from the power source.
2 Press and hold down the * and menu/enter keys.
3 Continue to hold down the keys while you plug back in (or turn on) the product, through the entire power on sequence.
4 When the control panel display reads Permanent Storage Init. release the keys.
5 Allow the product to return to Ready before using the product.


If that doesn't work it can be a power related issue,
- Make sure it's NOT plugged in to a surge protector.-
- Try a different outlet on the wall.
if theses steps fail you will most likely have to replace the scanner assembly

Another Option you can try as well :
Also I found this on a HP forum NOT SURE IF IT ACTUALLY WILL WORK:
" Scanner Bulb Walkout - Unplug the power from the unit,plug the power back in wait until the unit reads "Scanner Bulb Warming Up" Unplug the unit. Repeat this step 5 times.
This should move the scanner assembly back to its home position.
"
