Clean the flatbed glass inside will help and if possible clean the mirrors on the scanning head will completely solve the problem...

How do I solve the "scanner failure power off and on again" message for an h.p. 6110 officjet all-in-one printer/scanner/fax?


Hi Paul,

Scanner Failure usually results in Hardware Failure. However there is one step you can try. Try connecting the printer directly to wall outlet or any other power outlet and the issue should be resolved.

Regards,
Sean

Error code: "Scanner failure"


Hi
if your 7130 is showing "scanner failure," try resetting the date/time


If that fails, then your trouble's the motherboard, not the scanner assembly

I suggest you to get help from hp to replace the mother board of scanner



If this helps you please do a vote

I keep getting a message to turn off scanner and turn back on again after I change the ink what is the problem I have done everything I could think of, I reinstalled it and still the same problem the only...


Yes that's a common problem, if you can take apart the scanner and clean the optics and scanner lamp you might get a little more use, but as the scan lamp ages and gets dusty, it puts out less light and gives scan failure errors.A new scan assembly if you can find it costs more than a new machine.

I keep getting a scanner failure error


Let's try this. Turn power off, unplug the cord from the surge strip or wall socket. Leave unplugged for about 30 minutes, then plug back in and turn on. Hopefully this will fix your problem. Good luck.

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One.
Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet.
Now move the carriage (carriage is the one which holds the cartridge) Too and Fro till you feel the carriage is moving smoothly.
Then insert the cartridges close the access door.
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector.
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys
until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Now try printing a test page or make a copy

If it still makes a loud noise and the message comes up as scanner failure, then either the scanner or the scanner machanisum is bad, you may have to replace the unit

Good Luck

HP Officejet 7130 "Scanner Failure"


Scanner failure usually means you'll have to replace the entire scanner unit.

When the machine turns on (or gets plugged in), does anything happen...any lights come on?

Is the machine able to print from the computer and recieve faxes while the scanner error is present?  If so, you probably need a scan unit.
