Scanner error 52 - how to clean scanner?

I'm pretty sure that the reason I have a scanner error that will not go away when turning on and off a gazillion times is because there is cock roach poop in it. I know this is really gross, but we had a problem and got it fixed, now I need to fix my poor printer. Can I clean it? How do I take it apart and clean it? I also have a psc 2175 all in one that has the same problem. Can I clean it?

It appears the scanner motor needs a drop of oil to free it up. (See the fix here) http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/42093

My printer is Hp Laserjet P2055d fail to work error 52 occur and display scanner error whwat can I do?


The laser scanner speed is incorrect. X description: 1 = Scanner startup error 2 = Scanner rotation error

Probably Resolution : 1. Press GO.
The page containing the error will automatically be reprinted.
2. Turn the printer off and then on.
3. Re-seat cables to the laser/ scanner and engine controller.
4. Replace the laser/scanner.

I might as well tell you before hand, I'm Not sure if yours can be repaired but on older models I have repaired them by opening the laser/scanner assembly and removing the little circuit board with the motor and chrome spinning shaft. If you can remove the chrome piece from the motor you do so and then place a very tiny drop of synthetic oil down the shaft, install the chrome piece and spin a few time by hand and put everything back together. You can download the service manual by doing a google search. Look for instructions for removing the laser/scanner.

Scanner error 52 turn off and turn on


Sir/Madam

Unfortunately there's no troubleshoot with a 52 error. As it implies it's usually the scanner bad. It sits up top- under the top cover. It connects to the Formatted Board on the left side. and there's 2 connector s at the scanner itself.

So if Your HP Printer is Under warranty ( 12 Months ) Then I Suggest You Go To Official authorized HP shop for your HP Printer Problem and Troubleshoot or Go To Official HP Printer Website To Update HP Printer Software and Driver,Or You Update It From Official Below URL Link:

52 scanner error. Turn off thenb on


52 is an internal scanner hardware error.
Unplug printer, wait 30 seconds, plug it in and power up.
Problem still there...make sure printer is plugged into wall outlet, not surge protector.
If error persists you will have to get the laser/scanner assembly replaced.
We arn't talking about the scanner/copier assembly at the top of the printer. This is the internal laser/scanner that is used for all your printing.

Scanner error 5 on HP Color Laserjet 2840


Scanner Error 52 is a hardware error. If turning the power off , waiting 30 seconds and turning it back on does not solve the issue the the scanner assembly might need to be replaced. Another thing to try is make sure the printer is plugged into the wall not into a surge protector. Aside from that you may need to have the scanner assembly replaced.

Error 52


I think this will have to do with Hardware issues in terms of the "52 scanner error". According to the service manual, this has nothing to do with the ADF, but has to do with the Laser Scanner. The cable to the laser scanner is bad or the laser scanner itself is broken. If the cable is ok, then the Laser Scanner Assembly part number is RM1-0171. I think you could find it if you google it.
