Hp 2840 printer copier issues

We have an HP 2840 that won't print or copy correctly. The error message comes up 'engine error'. Have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and software.
have cleaned the machine, ran the system checks and it will not work. has always been reliable till now. Any suggestions?
If the printer will go to ready, update the firmware, even if same. Try an engine test, to confirm it's function. "Engine error" is basically the function of the printer. Not necessesarilly the formatter or DC controller. An NVRAM Init may help this issue.

I have noticed that scanner failure also causes the unit to error out and not copy etc. New scanner bulb is needed.You can get them at officejetparts.com for most models.Good luck

I have an HP 2840 the error message comes up 'engine error'. And sometimes scanner failure” after replacing the scanner unit scanner. Scanner error is resolved and it is showing PRINTER READY but when I am going to scan or print anything again it is showing engine error.

I have also replaced the DC FORMATTER CAD AND UPDATED THE FIRMWARE but still it is showing “engine error press enter to continue”
Please help me and suggestions me now that I should do

Thanks in advance
