When the printer initialises it comes up with a 57.x error and takes me through opening and closing all the panels on the front. However, this does not solve the problem. The manual suggests a fan failure. The printer was opened and indeed one of the fans on the left side did not spin-up. Now Im not sure whether it is always on or driven by a small thermostat. The fan was removed and tested and it was faulty. However, replacing it with a working fan does not solve the error. By the way, even the new fan does not spin when the printer is switched on. Any ideas?

I had this problem and it had to do with the scan bulb head not recognising the marker. My temporary fix until the bulb is replaced is to turn the printer off, open the top (ADF and all) with the gray button on the right so that it's slightly raised and then switch the printer on. When it comes up, just close and print/scan/copy as usual. Apparently the spring in the arm warped the interior surface where the head moves and it can't line up when it's closed. Hope this helps.
a 49.xxxx error on an HP means that there is an issue with one or more hard disks. you can try to re-initialise the hard disk(s) by rebooting the printer while holding the green button. when the three leds are lit, release the green button, and navigate using the numerical buttons until you see "initialise hard disks" on the display of the printer. confirm by pressing the green button again. if all goes well, your printer will take two minutes longer than usual to boot. if you still get the same error afterwards, you need to replace the disk.
The printer lid error can appear if any of the following are true: - top lid is open - rear duplexer or flat panel is not installed correctly - cartridge bay area door is open
All of these conditions are detected by a series of sensors or circuits in the printer design so with regard to the lid and cartridge bad door you need to make sure that nothing has broken off that closes the switch.
I'd lay odds that it's most likey the rear panel/duplex unit. I'd recommend taking this out as per the manuals instructions and then reinserting it, carefully so that it fits in place properly.
