Scanner light stays on

Hi,

I have a brand new LaserJet3055 the scanner lamp stays on. I took to a repair depo they replaced the entire top scanner assembly and bulb.

I got it back and the same thing the scanner light stays on all the time left overnight and it is still on. When you make a copy it says "Scanner Bulb is Warming UP" then it immediately says "Ready to Copy" I would think this should take about 10 seconds but I guess the bulb is already on go it flys through the warm up step.

Anything can be done to fix this?

Bulb may be designed to stay on to last longer -- otherwise it may cost about $100 to replace if it wears out sooner due to on-off cycling.

In the manual for a different brand of "all in one copier scanner" etc (Brother), it says even though their default timeout is 5 min.(for all the other parts of the machine such as fuser), but the lamp time out is designed to stay on for 16 hours.  If you turn the machine on and off every time, the manual says the bulb will wear out sooner -- I guess that is probably the reason for the HP lamp as well.

I have the same problem. I chatted with HP customer care for an hour but it can't be fixed. The only thing you can do now is set the power saver mode to 2 hours, so bulb will turn off in 2 hours. Only way to minimum power consume.

Modle 5222, scanner error?? any suggestions?


sure you lamp lights up when machine is powered on. open the top cover, turn power on. lamp should light and scanner should move. if either of these do not happen you will need to replace parts. if the lamp lights and the scanner moves your ccd could be bad. you may need a service tech. if the lamp does not light it is your problem. lamp, power supply, ballest, or main pcb could be the problem

Fujitsu Scanpart 620c Leds error Amber on, Green blinking,red bli


Hi,
Thank you for contacting Fixya.
You need to check the blinking times of the Paer jam LED. Then check the followings:
1. If the lamp is on, then ADF Switch is malfunctioning. Disble or short the switch.
2. If the lamp is off, then it is Flatbed or ADF Inverter error. Lamp inverter circuit is to be replaced.
5. If the Lamp is still off, then Lamp is to be replaced.
6. If the issue still persists, then you may have to contact the authorized Avision Service personnel for further diagnosis and suggested repair or replacement.
Hope the above information is helpful.
Please revert if you have any doubt.
Regards,
TechSatya

No letters come out or pictures


It quite simple to verify if the lamp is out. Just leave the the cover open and then switch the scanner on. The lamp should light up as the scanner initializes. Note if the full length of the lamp lights up. If it lights up only partially, then the lamp needs to be replaced. I doubt if the lamp is the problem though.

It is quite simple to get to the lamp but, you do need to be a little tech-savvy and own a soldering iron. Disconnedt the mains from the scanner. Turn over the scanner; the top is secured to the bottom by two recessed clips at the front button; release them with a screw-driver. Unsolder the two ends of the lamp. A new lamp can be purchased at a shop that sells computer spare parts. It's similar to the lamps that are used as back-lights in LCD screens. They come in different lengths so make sure you get one of similar length and solder it back in place.

Lamp replacement


Just replace the lamp! It's just a fluorescent light you can get anywhere. You don't need a new scanner, if I had to replace the scanner every time the lamp died I be in the poor house!
