One needs patience as the warmup takes a few minutes sometimes. This is to allow the lamp phosphor to stabilize.

Good morning,am trying to fix a hp officejet pro l7780.It can't scan,copy or send fax.Could someone assist me please?


Does the fax/scanner light come on at all? If not, then that's the problem, because that's the only part that likely needs to warm up.

Fail to initializing


The fail to initialize is typically a problem with the document scanner...but not always. here is a quick test you can try. Turn the unit off then power it on again. Slightly lift the copy lid as the unit goes through warm up mode...pay attention to the light color emitting form the scammer. it starts to blink red, then changes to a bright white IF the scanner is working properly. IF the scanner is NOT working properly the scanner stays RED during the warm up.

Unable to send, copy or send fax


Sounds like the scanner bulb is burnt out or it's not able to move the scanner sled.
It should be saying "scanner error" as well. (and I think you meant unable to scan, copy or send fax)
No fix unfortunately other than getting a replacement unit (which I believe now is the 8500 premiere)

If you need a replacement, your timing is good, they are $200 off right now, and selling for $299.

Your unit as it stands still makes a good printer and will receive faxes, and you CAN send a fax as long as you do it from the computer.

People receiving fax are getting black pages, all locations I send fax to.


If you make a copy on the fax machine, is it all black too? Yes? Most likely the scanner bulb (under the auto feeder) is blown out

Fax problem


first try to make a copy and check if you get the same error message..
if you get the same error message..try these steps..
1)connect the printer directly to the wall outlet..and try to make a copy..if you get the same error message..then go the next step
2)unplug the power chord from the back of the printer..press and hold OK and CANCEL buttons together..
3)while pressing these two buttons plug in the power chord to the back of the printer..after you plug in the power chord do not release the buttons untill the screen goes blank..
4)once the screen is blank release the buttons and turn ON the printer..
5)wait for the printer to complete the initialization..
6)then try to make a copy and check if it is copying successfully..
if not machine should be replaced because scanner bulb is not getting enough power or scanner bulb is gone bad..
please try these steps and let me if the solution has worked

Fax and cancel lights are flashing



I found this solution at HP website. It worked for me. Good luck!

A Scanner Bulb Error message is received as a result of the HP LaserJet 3300mfp series product scanner’s inability to find the home reference point.
SOLUTION:
Perform the following steps to walk the scan assembly from the home base and resolve the issue.
1. Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2. Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to “walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4. Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.

When we copy on our 4750e fax it comes out with black page


Can you see light from the scanner unit with you make a copy or try to send out faxes? The bulb for the scanner may be burnt. You might be able to find a replacement bulb, search google or contact Brother.

Errors


Hi Jean, The issue can occure only when the HP printer is not gettting enough power supply or the scanner bulb is not getting heated up properly.. You can isolate the issue by directly connecting the printer to wall jack and powerup the printer and try to make a copy so that we can check the copy function as the copy,scannig and FAX use the same scanner bulb to performe all functions.. If the copy does'nt work try to lift the scanner lid and check if the scanner bulb is lit and the scanner machinasium is moving fine or not .. lift the lid and press scan button to check the functionality. If the printer is connected to a surge protector or power strip this will some time fail to provide the required power supply to the printer so connect it to wall outlet and check with the issue.. There is also a FIRMWARE UPDATE RELEASED BY HP to fix the some of the scanner failure and receving faxes issue with HP 6110 All-in-one Here is the weblink to download and install the firmware update just click on the link to open the download page and then click on download and select save to save the patch to computer and run it to install the update make sure that the printer is connected and turn on while installing the patch The link to download: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=oj-14700-3&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=79477&os=228&lang=en Hope this will fix the issue.. If the issue is with the scanner failure message try the instruction in the below weblink: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00787271&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=79477&dlc=en&lang=en Wish you success Jean Regards, Barret
