Usually this type of error message pops up when the scanner lamp isn?t warming up properly. This is what you should do: 1. Check if the lamp is on. 2. Unplug the scanner?s power supply and plug it back in. Try connecting it diretly to the wall. 3. If that doesn?t work: a. Unplug the unit?s power supply. b. Press ?cancel? and left arrow while reconnecting the unit. c. Release the buttons when the printer starts up. 4. Try scanning again. 5. If it doesn?t work, have it serviced.

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.

Get paper path error when path is clear & clean.

There are two types of sensors, optical and mechanical. Sometimes the mechanical sensor get stuck and give a message to the scanner that paper still remains inside the scanner. Check if any of them is stuck, Blow air from a dsiatance so that any shreds of paper is foreced out.

Hp officejet d145 carriage error & scanner failure

Re carriage error - suggest cleaning the encoder strip. this is the plastic strip running parallel to the drive belt but about 1 inch above it. They frequently become covered with ink spray and so are impossble to read by the carriage position detector.

Beware.

Only use cold water and be very gentle. also make sure you dry the strip thoroughly before switching the machine back on.

Re scanner problem 2 possibilities.
(1) make sure printer power cable is connected directly into wall socket not through an extension cable. This can reduce the voltage getting through to the scanner lamp.

(2) if that don,t work then I suggest you take the scanner apart and clean the reference strip. this is a white bar on the scanner glass which tells the machine what the light level is. This can be a bit tricky so if you've never done it before consult someone who has or get back in touch with me. HP don't want you to do this but it sometimes works.

When scan job is sent a start failure error comes on the display

Don't worry about the clean roller message. It is just a reminder much like your scheduled maintenance light that appears in your car.

Start Failure can occur for a number of reasons. When you get a start failure message close your scanning software and reopen it. Sometimes your connection may degrade if left idle. If that doesn't work shut down the scanner and pc. Turn on the scanner and wait until it is fully initialized before turning on the PC. These steps have resolved that problem for me. Lacking a manual, I just try things. Good Luck
