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.

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.

Hp laser jet 3330 will not reset with acquired instructions and bulb warming message stays on.......i've tried to unplug unit....stays the same. cancel button also stays lit


You need to take apart the top and clean the scanner bulb and mirrors, if cleaning does not help then you need a new scan assembly. Usually costs more than a new machine.
