Question about HP LaserJet 3330 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I have a HP laserjet 3330 that says "scanner bulb warming up" and makes a clunking noise whenever I turn it on. It never gets past this. I opened it up and disconnected the scanner/copier - now I can print fine but have to turn it off and then on again between EVERY print job! Suggestions?

Hello,

Here is a link to a file from the HP web site. This explains how to open your scanner assembly and clean the scanner mirrors. These instructions are provided as-is. I have used them to repair many of these units with your problem, but because of the technical difficulties in opening your printer and performing the repair we accept no responsibility. You can download the instructions here,

I hope this helps you save your printer.

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.
