Question about HP PSC 950 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My psc 950 remains on "warming up" when I need it to print.Initially the problem was salved if I switched it off and back on again but not now
Sorry, forgot to get back to ya..
anyway, remove control panel cover, remove button panel, you will see a little tab right at the top, push that down and unlock and discconect, remove small ribbon on the underside. use torx driver and remove screws so that you can remove the whole top gray housing, you want to access where the scanner bulb comes to rest, there will be a black plastic cover over the scanner bulb, REMOVE THAT PIECE, its about 2" wide by 10" long, unclip it by putting small screwdriver in small rectangular slots and pry lightly to the right, there are little tab locks in there.
With that removed, just put things back loosely to see if the warming up stops when turning on or trying to use scanner, if everything works well, do alittle cleaning and put thing all back together.. this should solve your warming up promlem..

Cleaning did the thing, just removing the black lid, didn't

I've done everything suggested and still no luck. i started by cleaning the mirrors. Twice. Then I read somewhere that it literally needed to "warm up" so I left it in my garage where it's about 80 degrees for about 30 min then tried again. Nothing. Then I took the black cover off the scanner assembly and did a #6 factory reset. Still not working. I guess I'm S.O.L. haha. Thanks for the suggestions though!

Thank you TimoAP, followed your instructions and the thing works like new. Ya I know its an older all-in-one but it was free and used lightly (less than 6 months, 5 years ago when it was purchased) by a friend of mine in his office.

Squirrel549, try this, not sure if it will work though....
Unplug cord from the printer, and wait about 30 seconds.
Press the "#" and "6" at the same time while pluging the cord back in. "Full Reset" will flash and then disapear.
Turn the power on, set language and country.

Please help. I have done everything suggested & still no luck. The scanner will move back & forth but when it hits the right side end (over the gears) it just gets stuck there & grinds.I have had the whoe thing apart & cleaned everything. Any more suggestions would be greatly appriciated. Thanks..

II tried the two methods listed here. I removed the cover and cleaned the mirrors. I also removed the black cover that sits atop the bulb. The scanner is working great and I am still scanning. Thanks to everyone for the tips

Hello, I know everyone is looking for an easy fix for your warming up problem, resetting and turning the printer off and on will NOT fix the problem, the black plastic part i talk about in the other post needs to be removed, it is partialy blocking the light from the scanner bulb and the printer cannot sense that it is ready to print. My printer has not missed a beat in 6 months, and i use it every day.
