Hi Cherylanne, Give this a try: Scanner Error 6 Turn off then on

1. Clean Glass Scanner Bed.

  • If the glass scanner bed is too dirty or smeared with fingerprints and such, you may get this error. It will not clear itself simply by turning off and on the printer such as the message suggests. Even a build up of dust can cause this. It is triggering a reaction caused by a sensor in the scanner. If you clean it good and then power cycle it, the problem should go away. THIS PROCEDURE FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR THE AUTHOR.

2. Try the NVRAM INITZ reset procedure. REF

  • switch off the printer, then remove all cables connecting to the printer but just the power cable.
  • then press and hold the *(start/symoble) and 5 button togather and turn on the printer.
  • continue holding the button till you see "perment storage init" displayed and releas the button.
  • then at a given point of time the printer will ask you to change laguage,time,date etc.

3. Remove paper scrap or dust obstructing scanner or sensor. REF

4. Clean sensor / remove the glass and clean the bulb and mirrors. REF

  • turn off power
  • remove ADF and inspect blew out any dust
  • unclipped control panel cover and removed top platen cover 4 torx screws
  • inspected and dusted (blew out) the scanner
  • put platen cover back again and placed 5 sheets new paper over right side (where scanner is) and turned on came up happy
  • turned off reinstalled ADF (cleaned the white surface first) turned on again

5. Scanner Bulb is not getting to the alignment area.

Says "scanner error 6 turn


If power cycling the printer didn't get rid of the "scanner error 6", you are going to have to get the AIO scanning assembly replaced. That is the top of the printer, the flat bed scanning assembly.

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. :)
