My printer was pluged in a 220 volts surge and the power supply was blown off. I repaired it by changing only the fuse which was blown off and all was OK. But the problem I'm facing now is that, when I put the printer on , I saw a message on the LCD screem reading "Please Wait" which will last for as long as the printer is left on. the scannig arm does not move normally as it should making a cracking or grinding sound and I also noticed that the fan is not spinning as it should be thou the power is on .

It probably fried the power supply in the TV unfortunately. If the electrical surge stopped there then it should just be a matter of swapping out the power supply. Provide a make and model of television and I will see if I can help find one with instructions on how to change it.
Please make sure that the printer is connected to a wall outlet and not to a surge protector because surge protector distributes the total electric supply equally to each and every device connected to that surge protector. Printer might work and might not with a surge protector but it will always work fine with a wall outlet till the hardware of the printer and power chord, adapter are working fine.
some times scanner failure error comes if it is not getting enough power supply.So if it is connected to a surge protector then I will suggest you to disconnect it and connect it directly to a wall outlet. Now scan or copy any document and see if something happens.
If not the do check while you press scan or copy button the scanner light is moving or not? If scanner light is not moving then do a hard re-set.
Hard Re-Set : - disconnect power chord from the back of the printer and then from wall outlet or surge protector. - wait for 40 secondsand then connect the power adapter to wall outlet and then to the back of the printer. The try to scan or copy....still not working then check if the scanner bulb is glowing or not?
If scanner bulb is not glowing and if you dont hear any noise while you press scan or copy...then printer hardware has gone bad and you need to replace the printer
You are suggested to check the power cable if it fine and properly pluged in the printer and check if you printer power adapter is working fine. you can check the Power adapter by the Tester usually avalible at electronics shop.
Connecting it on a wrong power outlet like what happen will cause a major problem on your device , since your device is made for 110 and you connect it to a 220 this can still be fix and it needs a part replacement so better take it to a service center to have it check and have the burned part replace....

Check the voltage at CN105-1 and 6 on the main board. 24 volts 0 volts Replace the main board.
You can try to purchase a new power supply from the USA or similar that has 110v power. Problem is that maybe the power supply let some of the high current through to the main board in the machine and that may have fried too. If you can afford it, try the power supply option first - the scanner may just power up fine.
