Help me with scanner error 8 0n HP laser jet 2727nf


This unit is dead and not worth fixing. That error indicates that the formatter has failed and when that happens it burns the drive motor in the scanner out. Open the top and smell near the narrow slit of glass and you will smell burned electrical smell.

ERROR CODE 51.2M


Hi
A quick look on the internet told me that this is probably a HP ColourLaserjet series printer/copier, and have proceeded on this basis using the 5500 model. This particular code crops up on several models and the explanation is given below:
Description:- A printer error has occurred.
X Description: 1 scanner error 2 scanner startup error 3 scanner rotation error Y Description 0 no color K black C cyan M magenta Y yellow
Remedy:- 1. Press GO to continue. 2. Turn the printer off and then back on. 3. Reseat the connectors between the laser/scanner (J74 - J77) and DC controller PCB (J1106 - J1109). 4. Replace the defective laser/ scanner assembly. Calibrate the printer after replacing the laser/scanner. 5. Replace the DC controller PCB. Calibrate the printer after replacing the DC controller.
I obtained this from the link below:-
Error Codes HP Color LaserJet 3550 Code 51 XY
for the 5500, but there are drop down menus above the error details which enable you to change the model number to your specific machine and then you will get the exact requirements. I recommend you do this as although the error code description for other models is the same, the PCB numbers under the "Remedy" are different for different models. You can also download a service manual from this site using the link at the top of the page.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

The printer is showing error 51 and not printing


Control Panel message
51 PRINTER ERROR

Description

Beam error
Action
Laser scanner cable connectors are faulty or laser scanner assembly is defective Most likly it is the laser/scanner assembly. The motor is probably not spinning at the right speed. You would need to find an old hp 4 no longer working and switch the laser/scanner. It is the "black box" located under the top cover. You would need to remove the right side cover, the top cover, the left side cover and the output assembly. Remove all the cables from the scanner retaining clips. Remove the three cables plugged into the scanner and remove the four screws attaching the scanner to the frame. When replacing the scanner make sure the shutter control arm on the left front side of the scanner is attached correctly so that the shutter closes when the toner cartiridge is removed. You could first try to remove the 3 connnectors and reset them.

My hp laserjet 4600dn is showing an error message 51.2k


I finally got the courage to keep going, and got the laser/scanner out. I swapped it with the Magenta laser, and sure enough, the same error came up with M instead of K. So, I got ready to order a reman'ed laser/scanner, and was just about to click "checkout," when I figured I'd tinker with the bad scanner. I took it apart (I know, no user serviceable parts), and spun the laser by hand. There was the screeching noise! So, I removed the motor board by removing the 4 screws and the cable, then took some light oil, and a toothpick. I dropped the slightest bit of oil on the spindle on the top, and on the inside where it spun on the spindle, and spun the laser around by hand a few times... Then I inverted the assembly, and spun it around some more. Then I reassemble the laser/scanner module, cable, and then cover. I put the l/s back in, and with everything off, turned the printer on, forcing it to go through a cold reset. And sure enough, I've got my printer back!

Scanner Error - Power On > Power Off


Sounds like the scanner has died. Sometimes restarting can help out. If you can print try printing out the configuration page and let us know what the error codes are.
