Question about Canon PIXMA MP980 All-In-One InkJet Printer
the cable vibrating could be a sign of the motor working, possibly the scanner light is stuck. if you are in warranty, I would recommend to take advantage of it... If you are outside of warranty or wish to attempt to repair it yourself anyway then what I would personally try is to take open the top part of the scanner to get access to the scanner that moves (you will have to unscrew a certain number of screws), try to help it along or move it just a bit so it wouldn't be on the default resting location, it should reset automatically back to its normal position.
When taking apart the printer make sure its unplugged or the power is turned off at the wall, you may also try - while the top cover is open, to power it back on and then do a scan, then try helping the scanner to move a bit, if its stuck help it unstuck.
Make sure you only touch plastic parts while the power is on, with the power off attempt to move the scanner out from the side to the center, if it makes noise or seems to be damaging to the printer only move it a small distance to minimize any harm done by doing so.
Once you get it moving, if you are getting a error message still, try turning it off at the wall again, or perform this reset shown on this video and put the printer back together as it was.
