HP LaserJet III P - Error 52
What Is "Scanner Motor"?
It's a little motor with mirrors on top. It spins at a fixed rate of speed. The laser beam pulses off the mirror and is deflected onto the surface of the photoconductive drum where it erases the high voltage charge and allows the toner to stick. If it doesn't spin at the precise speed, you get a 52 error. We have a do-it-yourself repair kit that will fix that, just click on the "printer repair kits" link above ^.
