HPLJ2 Scanner motor R301 burnout

Hello advanced tech specialists.

After several years of excellent use, my HPLJ II broke down.
It comes with error 52, laser scanner motor malfunction.
After taking the printer apart I found resistor R301 on the scanner motor
pcb to be blown.
I will try to replace this R301, but I don't have a clou what value it is
supposed to be.
Does anybody know the value?

Thanks in advance,

Ton Hekstra

You didn't by any chance leave off the "P" after the HPLJ2 did you?

No, I did not.
It is just Hpjl 2
BTW it is that important?

Totally different printer. The reason I asked is that the 52 is common on HP2Ps. I don't think I ever saw one on an HP 2. The scanners on those printers almost never go bad. Did you try the connector tweaking on the troubleshooting page. If that doesn't work, I've got a bunch of scanner assys. They never go bad so I never need them. $25 + $5 shipping and it'll save you a lot of aggravation.

I looked again at my so familiar printer, and at top it says indeed Lasetjet IIP.
So I was incorrect. Sorry

It is a iip, and it has R301 burned on the scanner motor pcb. Any change i can fix this?

I knew it was a 2P all along. The ic chip also burns up and if you want to spend a whole lot of time and trouble finding the p/n and replacing it... Easiest thing to do is buy a new scanner motor assembly. Since you obviously don't need a video to get it out, I can discount it to $45. Just put on the order "no video" in the comments field.

Still I want try to fix it myself.
I will replace the driver Ic and the 4 capacitors.
However i cannot read the type-print on the driver ic anymore.
Do you know the typename of the ic?
Thanx in advance
