HP Laser Jet 3300 constant noise

My HP Laser Jet 3300 constantly makes noise. It sounds like the scanner is continually trying to start scanning. While the noise is going, it will print from the computer, but it won't scan or copy. When we unplug it, the noise stops for a short period of time. Then it returns.

Re: HP Laser Jet 3300 constant noise

I had the same problem. After updating a hp firmware, so far so good. The noise is gone.

That is the link for the 3330. It is under the downloads section and is at the bottom. They refer to it as firmware

5120 code error

Any of these error codes (51.20 51.21 51.22 51.23) points to a failure with one of the laser scanner assemblies on the HP Color LaserJet 4610 an 4650 series. To solve these error codes, replace the corresponding laser scanner. Sometimes when the laser scanner fails you will also hear loud noises (often higher-pitched noises like screeching sounds); the noises can be another sign that the laser scanner needs replacing.

HP Laser Jet 3055 is showing scanner error 6 and Comm. error 386, 232, & 388

This is due to a hardware failure, the scanner assembly and the formatter board will need to be replaced.

1. Turn off the all-in-one
2. Press and hold down the * and enter buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it. storage init. appears, and then release the buttons.

if this does not work contact hp 1800-334-5144.

Hp 3050 laser jet printer the fax page is black

The scanner in your FAX is nothing working -- i.e., "100%-black" or "100%-white", and so what is transmitted is what the scanner has scanned, improperly.

Laser Jet 3300

Hi, when you lift the cover where the flatbed glass is can you see the scanner trying to move back and forth? Also you might want to check and make sure the scanner lock didn't get moved to where the scanner just goes back in forth ? Are you getting any error codes?
