Hp HP DeskJet 1100

HP Laserjet 1100 All Lights ON

I have a HP LaserJet 1100 printer, when I turn it on, all three lights in the front would do like a self check then they all stay lit and not go off and also it sounds like motor tried 2 start but then keep silent. When I press the button the big light remains ON and rest of 2 lights become OFF and when I let that button it becomes in same condition. When I open front door and then do printer ON, it do nomal selftest and rightmost light starts blinking bt when I close that door, again all 3 light becomes ON.
Please help me .. I hve changed my formattor card too ..
That error means a laser scanner beam error. I had one today on a later model. Took it apart and lubricated the motor shaft and it worked fine after that. The scanner is on top of the printer. Remove the cover off the top and the motor board has a couple of screws holding it in. Take it out and I think there's a plastic clip holding it from lifting. Lift the mirror part off and put a drop of oil (I prefer synthetic) on the shaft and put it back together.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the scanner assembly.
