hi guys.. iam Aqeel from pakistan. i've just solved that stucking problem today and tellining u guys who are facing such problems over thr. All you need to do are two steps: 1- detach the paper tray and push it back correctly. 2- open front door and remove toner cartridges, on left inner side u may see a light sensor which detects the toner cartridges.. simply clean this section by a small cotton bud. and left side of toner unit thr is a sensor door, behind that door there is also a light sensor bulb, which needs cleaning by a cotton bud.
thats all i hope this will help u fixing that problem. bbyee
I have the same problem and it seems that the only way to fix this is to replace the scanner bulb. The problem is that, as far as I can tell, the bulb comes as part of the scanner assembly - and so you have to replace the whole scanner assembly. It is quite expensive - 200 to 300 dollars Canadian. There are whole machines available for $300.00 though so is it worth repairing if one cannot just buy the bulb? Ger.
The warming Up messge usually occures when the scanner bulb is not getting heat up for the correct temprature or the scanne bulb might be defective..
To resolve this issue follow the below instructions..
First connect the printr directly to a wall outlet as some times surge protectors will not provide the required power for the printer then this message can come up.
Once the printer is directly connected to the wall outlet try to turn on the printer and check with the issue..
If the issue presists try the instructions in the below webpage..
This shoule resolve the issue ..
Wish u success..
