Canon suggests that you press and hold down the power button until the machine resets itself. If this doesn't work, their tech support states "scanner may need repair".

Can't get the scanner to work. the green light flashes, but no action takes place.


You should have software that came with your scanner. This will guide you through the scanning process as you pull the scan into your PC. Did your scanner come with Nuance paperport software?

Beeps 3 times and power light flashes


I have not solved the problem. I just changed to a different printer. I had a bj50 printer and it use to do this and would change the printhead but they are expense and I have 3 different ones so believe it is something else that is wrong with this one.

Fax and cancel lights are flashing



I found this solution at HP website. It worked for me. Good luck!

A Scanner Bulb Error message is received as a result of the HP LaserJet 3300mfp series product scanner’s inability to find the home reference point.
SOLUTION:
Perform the following steps to walk the scan assembly from the home base and resolve the issue.
1. Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2. Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to “walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4. Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.
