I have HP Laserjet 3055 All In One. Got Scanner Error 6.
I fixed by going to Device Manager, Imaging Device, uninstalling HP device driver, turning computer off, turn off printer and unplug usb from comp. turn computer back on. plug in usb printer cable to computer, turn printer on, let it search for device driver. Will install device driver for you. Fixed mine. I had unplugged it for a bit while rearranging my office, must have corrupted driver somehow. :>)

My scanner fails to scan documents. It either generates a "warming-up" message OR "sorry, scanner could not be initialized. (Scanner parameter error.)" message.


there are many users facing this same error message.
there are options to solve the issue.the upper part of the printer is scanner.you have to remove that upper portion by removing the screws and internal locks on its inner layer.then check out if any dust is got collected on the scanner lens.the lens is a thin glass layer in the scanner that reads the document which you place on the glass.if the dust gets collected on the lens it will show this error messages.but if after cleaning it shows same message that means the internal board is got faulty.there is a mini circuit board beside the scanner glass.internally.so the upper scanner assembly needs replacement.in the scanner assembly set you get the new circuit board.scanner assembly means not the upper scanner glass it only includes the inner assembly and the circuit board of scanner assembly.the cost of new assembly is near to $40.you can get this assembly at any local printer repair shop.they have it in spare or they can easily get it from nearest service center of the hp company.
thanks.

HP 3055 model scaner problem


Document feeder error means that the printer is expecting you to have a document in the ADF "automatic Document Feeder" on top. If you are having this on the laptop, go into the scanner set up on your laptop, and change the device from document feeder to flatbed. It should work fine. You can also mimic the settings from your desktop to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Laserjet 3055 with "scanner error 6 - turn off and on" error


hp laserjet 3055 by scanner error 6
Solution: I found a very small piece of paper between the glass and the scanner housing. The lamp's seen that and sent the error message. Nobody find that little stucked paper and the "IT expert" sad: need to buy a new machine because he can't repair it. So, sometimes the solution is very easy just need some attention. :)

Scanner failure messege.


I put new bulbs my printer for the same error message, 2 bulbs with freight cost me $49.00. Now instead of error message after 10 or so minutes, it almost immediate. The tech folks in California says 95% of the time the bulbs fix this issue, but when it does not, it is the "board" at a cost of about $90.00. HP 7110 must have this issue and junk is my opinion at this time. Let me know how you come out.
