    Scanner resets constantly...never stops until I turn the machine off (unplugging is the only way to turn it off). I have to wait at least 1 minute before restarting. It will be quiet until I set somthing in the feeder to copy or try to copy something...or just don't do anything...it has a mind of its own! I have tried turning it off all night and nothing...the problem is getting much worse. I removed the little glass on the left side to reposition the belt, but it is constantly moving....do I need to turn my machine off and wait for it to stop resetting? I don't see how that will help?

    After plugging it back in, it continually makes a grinding sound which appears to come from the scanner.

Sounds like the scanner bulb mate. There is a post on here already about how to fix the scanner bulb problem.
Hope you fix it

If you are a visual learner like me hopefully this You Tube video will help (I fixed mine using it). Here's how to clean the mirrors of the scanner

Hello! I have got a 6 year old HP laserjet 3330 all in one laserjet printer.As soon as I switch it on, it makes a grinding noise. I think it comes from the a4 sheet feeder area. I tried lubricating...


I don't think the toner cartridge is amiss here. I think that on hp printers that are older, such as yours, the rubber feed rollers shrink and cause feed problems, over time.

The most common problem with grinding is from compacted toner. Try changing the toner cartridge.

Hp laser jet 3330 will not reset with acquired instructions and bulb warming message stays on.......i've tried to unplug unit....stays the same. cancel button also stays lit


You need to take apart the top and clean the scanner bulb and mirrors, if cleaning does not help then you need a new scan assembly. Usually costs more than a new machine.

Makes a grinding noise near the drum. Copier works, but makes a "gear-grinding" noise near the drum area. Can't tell what's doing it.


Un load the drum unit, check the drum/s gear, is it wear off, if so change it along with the drum's drive gear at machine base, check also the gears of developing unit

HP Laser Jet 3300 constant noise


I had the same problem. After updating a hp firmware, so far so good. The noise is gone.

That is the link for the 3330. It is under the downloads section and is at the bottom. They refer to it as firmware
