Question about HP Laserjet M2727nf Multifunction Printer
I have tried turning off and then on but this doesnt help. i keep getting the same error message on teh device display. anyone have any advice on how to resolve this? many thanks, /Eva I have the some problem with scanner error 5. Google give me a answer: Scanner error 5 indicates it is related to scanner assembly... try connecting the printer to wall outlet, n chk.. if issue still persist try resetting the printer to factory defaults... if nt still you can try updating the firmware... if no go thn contact hp for service options... Will try
Hmm.. If you have tried all that, and even cleaning sensors, then: The step motor likely needs replacing. (Do you hear the motor moving
when you turn the scanner back on after you move the scanner head to
the right?) (Need to lift the small glass to push it across a bit.!)
This is replaced as part of the scanner assembly:

There is nothing to try this is a problem with the hardware, both the scanner assembly and the formatter board have to be replaced, contact hp tech support if it has been less than 2 years since the purchase date and they will service the printer under a service note or offer the standard warranty options including replacing the unit for a refurb, that would be my recommendation.

This problem has to do with the scanner mirror. You may hear a grinding sound, also. The reason it does this is because the scanner bulb cannot find 'home', so it keeps trying to find it. Well, it uses the mirrors to reflect on another object inside the scanner to tell it when to stop. The mirror on top of the right next to the scanner bulb may need to be cleaned. This works every time for me, except the same problem always comes back sooner or later.
how to clean-
1.unplug your scanner
2.notice the glass covering on the left side, it can be removed with a Phillips screwdriver. Unscrew the plastic surrounding the glass and then remove the glass covering.
3.Plug the scanner back in and wait for the scanner to move left and then unplug it before it starts moving to the right. Repeat this until scanner bulb is all the way on the left of the machine.
-an alternative method-
with the glass covering removed, use a pair of pliers to move the small belt that moves the scanner bulb. keep moving it until the scanner bulb is all the way on the left of the machine.
4.With the scanner bulb assembly in reach, grab a Q-tip and gently clean the mirror that is just to the right of the bulb. You might want a flashlight to see the dirt and dust.
5. Put the glass covering back on.
6. Plug in the scanner.
At first to me it seemed like it wouldn't work, but it does.
Hope it helps. Reply back if it does.

This is the problem with your scanner. If it is under warranty please take it to Hp Service center and they will replace it free for you.

If you scanner error 5 or printer hangs at scanner bulb warming up than the issue is with Scanning Assembly inside the printer and it is hardware issue.
