Error 5 is an improperly seated ink cartridge. Pull it (them) back out. Make sure they are clean. Any protective tape has been removed. Then reseat them.

If the error persists, turn the device off for a few moments to reset it, then fire it back up.

HP LaserJet 2840 and the scanner not working it stops suddenly and has some noise it says on the screen error5 I turn it off and again on but still not working, thanks


Scanner 5 error is usually caused by a failed scanner head drive motor. HP does not sell that part by itself, you must buy a new flatbed assembly. Can sometimes be caused by dirty mirrors, check my tips on cleaning the scanner on the 3380 as it is the same procedure.

Hp m1522nf: Keep getting scanner error5. Don't use the scanner but not I can't copy with this error.


Hello !
I worked with those printer for 2 years...
This scanner error 5 you are getting is hardware failure on the scanner assembly
I would recommend you to try updating the firmware to the latest version, but most of the time its not going to work.
Now heres the best solution:
If the printer its under warranty (1 year after purchase date) just call hp tech support and you can get a replacement for $69 US dolars
its better than buying the scanner assembly
If the printer its out of the 1 year warranty, theres a service note for this specific issue that will extend your warranty 1 more year, that means 2 years warranty if the problem is a scanner error 5

Hp tech support phone number is 1 800 334 51 44

If you have any other question just contact me at :
