HP Officejet g85 All-in-One error

I have an error message in scanner window that reads, "scanner error, turn power off then on again"

Posted by on

  • jjandrositz Dec 28, 2007

    When scanning or copying (haven't tried faxing) I can get one copy or
    one scan. When the copy/scan arm begins the next scan or copy the
    message appears noting copy/scan failure and stating that the printer
    should be turned off then on again. Upon following the instructions
    (off then on) I can again make one more copy or scan (or a scan
    preview). I have taken the printer apart to include the scan/copy
    arm. I cleaned as much as possible, blew out any particles and turned
    the belt over...all to no avail : - (

Power on the printer, wait around 15 seconds until the bulb assembly moves a bit to the left and the light goes on, then immediately power off.

Repeat the process around 15 times (or more) until the assembly has moved all the way to the left of the glass, and is located directly beneath the small glass on the left.

Remove the single screw that holds down the small glass.

Carefully remove the grey frame around the small glass.

Carefully remove the small glass.

Using a dry Q-tip, carefully insert it into the slot (to the left of the bulb) and clean the mirror. I found mine was coated with a layer of film, as if grease had accumulated over time.

Put everything back together.

Turn on the printer.

How do I solve the "scanner failure power off and on again" message for an h.p. 6110 officjet all-in-one printer/scanner/fax?


Hi Paul,

Scanner Failure usually results in Hardware Failure. However there is one step you can try. Try connecting the printer directly to wall outlet or any other power outlet and the issue should be resolved.

Regards,
Sean

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.
