Re: HP officeJet K series scanner failure power off and...


The "Scanner System Failure" error occurs if the scanner bulb is not heating to the correct temperature or there is some other issue with the scanner hardware

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Please remove the All-in-One Printer from the Power Surge Protector and plug it directly into a wall Power outlet, as the surge protector may not provide enough power to printer.

Please perform the step given below to power cycle the unit after removing the print cartridges from the printer:

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only
4. Repeat steps 2-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one to your computer.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.

A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.
Hope, this solution would work for you.

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.

Un active the fax,scann,copy

This solution is for "older" R-series All-in-One's but it may be your solution as well. You may be experiencing a situation in AllN1's called "SCANNER SYSTEM FAILURE" where the scanner bulb may be weaker than it appears by naked sight and doesn't meet system power requirements to "pass" as good to go and thereby is passing to the printer a failure condition. In the R-Series AllN1's the ultimate solution was a bulb replacement. Which surprisingly is not as intimidating as it may sound if you might want to tackle the problem on a do it yourself basis. I can give you more details if you would like. I think you can respond to this Solution; I am new to this forum. If you can not respond directly my email address is

Office Jet K60xi Scanner Failure

Try HP's web site suggestions first.

If your sacnner still fails to function, uninstall everything for the Officejet through add/remove in control panel. (Power off printer before uninstalling).
Go to Hp's web site.
Step 1. Click, Download drivers and software (and firmware).
Go to step 2. For product, type in Officejet k60xi .
Power on your printer. (Wait for printer to fully power on).
Click, Start Detection>> button.
Allow HP to scan your system & install the latest software.
Follow the on scren instructions. (When finished, restart your PC). Test your scanner by scanning something.
If your scanner still fails to scan, you may be missing basic HP files loaceted in windows system & windows system32 folders.
(These missing files were not installed during your install of windows). Not your fault.

HP Officejet 7130 "Scanner Failure"

Scanner failure usually means you'll have to replace the entire scanner unit.

When the machine turns on (or gets plugged in), does anything happen...any lights come on?

Is the machine able to print from the computer and recieve faxes while the scanner error is present?  If so, you probably need a scan unit.

OfficeJet 7310 FAX issue

Did anything happen prior to the issue? It almost sounds as if the DC controller (main board) has gone bad. What happens if you try to make a copy on it?
