Question about HP LaserJet 2840 All-In-One Printer
My printer and HP2840 Color Laser Jet has been in a shop since February 2009. I've been told by HP and this shop that only a new Scanner Assembly will solve the problem. But now we can't get a Scanner Assembly. I had just loaded this printer with over $500. worth of toner and I want my printer back. It is ludicrous that I can't get the part to fix this printer. If I can't get a part and my printer back I will never buy another HP product as long as I live. I'm pretty disgusted by this.
You are right you do need a scanner assy as they do go bad. I am sure they are available however, as the 2840 is a popular model. Try Google, partsnow.com and other parts stores. Finding a tech to do the repair will be your next challenge, but it is not a tough job.

The solutions for this are posted elsewhere on this site, look for "Scanner Error 5". Basically, it's one of several things that can be cleaned or adjusted without having to replace the entire scanner head. If it does need parts they should return the printer to you until the parts are available. This error does not prevent you from printing. Even though the printer shows the error message and tells you to cycle the power, you don't need to. It will still print with this error. Find a repair shop with someone who knows what they are doing, or get a #10 Torx screw driver and fix it yourself.
Read the other thread. Could be dirty mirrors, dirty or crooked film sensor strip, or bad light bulb, all of which can be easily repaired.
