Noisy scannerThis failure can occur when the HP All-in-One product is initializing.Every time the unit is turned on, the scanner carriage should move. Sometimes, when the scanner carriage returns to its home position, the carriage could crash and make a loud noise. Within a few seconds, the unit gets blocked, and the front panel display shows a Scanner failure message.Scanner noise could also be caused by the scanner sensor inside the HP All-in-One product being damaged or not properly in place.To solve this failure, follow the steps below: Perform a Power Cycle on the unit by following the steps below: Turn the unit off. Unplug the power cord from the unit. Wait 30 seconds, and then re-connect the power cord to the unit. Turn the unit on. NOTE: Sometimes, unplugging the unit and plugging it back in will solve the issue. Be sure to plug it into a grounded outlet using the power cord provided with the unit. Make a test copy of any document by pressing the Start Copy (black or color) button. If this copy is successful, the scanner mechanism is functioning correctly.

To fix it you have to clean the glass from the inside and reset the device by pressing the # button along with 6 button, and then plug the power cable in while pressing them.
First of all you should disconnect the printer from all cables.
Then remove the screws that hold the glass panel, remove the plastic panel that's over the buttons, then extract the keyboard from the inside by pressing the lock button thats on the bottom right of the keyboard, close to the center, while sliding the board to the left. you have to do this gently, because this board is attached to a ribbon that's attached to the head.
Then, by lifting the upper unit with the glass panel and releasing the spring that's on the left center you can reach the inside of the glass and clean it with a window cleaner using a dry clean cloth. assemble everything back and reset by pressing the pound and the 6 while plugging it back in, and It will work as good as new.
