Error points to scanner assembly 1st. Formatter 2nd. If you continue to get this message replace low volt pcb.

This error is due to a weak scanner lamp.Just buy a new lamp from www.officejetparts.com and a new bulb will clear the error.I have fixed many of the hp 2840 printers with a new bulb.

Goodluck.
