  1. I have seen various problems in hp officeject and psc, most of which are
    related to the scanner.
    Bulbs going bad being the main problem there but now this one is funny.
    Machine came in with scanner failure, complaint is grinding noise.
    Easy i thought, clean the optics and replace the bulb.
    Nope, after doing all that the scanner still fails to find it's starting
    point and the motor stays engaged, hence the grinding noise.
    Any other suggestions on what could cause this?
    Model is PSC 2175 but it should not be model related.

    I have the same problem with my 2175. At start up the scanner makes a
    repeated noise that goes on and on, and the printer is unuseable. CRAP

    Interestingly, I have a 2175 that sometimes decides not to scan when
    the PC tells it to. Most times I can hit the (Black) start button and
    it will work. Sometimes it fails and if I turn it off and back on the
    scanner starts to repeatedly bang against the stops. When this occurs
    the only way that I have found to get it back to normal is to unplug it
    (vs. turn off) and leave it unplugged for at least a half hour. Then
    its fine, sometimes for weeks.
