Hp HP LaserJet 3100

HP 3100 scanner output horrible

I am working on a 3100 and the test pages from the menu print good but if I make a copy from the scanner its all cloudy and blurry like a bad scanner motor, but it prints nice from the report menu. the scanner platen glass is clean, the 3100 is still like brand new.

Any ideas ?

thanks, billymac
Look in the menu. I believe there is a Service Menu and in that is contained a scanner calibration menu. It involves feeding a blank sheet of paper in. Then it will print out a calibration page. Try that.
