Second thing you want to check is the firmware. Make sure the firmware on the printer is up to date. if not update it.
Restore the defaults on the printer.
If not perform an NVRAM on the printer.
Turn Off the printer.
Press and hold the Down arrow and Cancel buttons simultaneously.
Turn On the printer.
When the Permanent storage init message is displayed, release the Left arrow and Cancel buttons.
When the NVRAM init is complete, it will ask you to choose a language.
Hit OK for English
Then hit OK to choose the USA, or arrow to correct location
Then the printer returns to the Ready state.
I hope this helps you out. If you have any more questions please let me know.

Moved it to a separate outlet.
Flashed the latest FW.
did an NVRAM init.
Still the same.
I can see that the scanner head is not moving during the initialization, if I remember correctly it used to.
(TBW my unit is an M1522nf if that matters)

Now I get the error 5. I read several passages here starting with Daniel Tortorelli, Apr 3, 2007. Took the glass and top frame off. I think I saw and fixed my issue. Did nothing else than what I am stating below.
Removed top and glass, cleaned the glass and looked at all the connections and moving parts.
Cycled the scanner head back and forth a couple of times just to check movement.
Cleaned the black/white line/glass to make sure it was nice and clean and the scan head could establish a good start/reference point. Nothing seemed to make any sense and none of the above are what I believe is the root cause of the problem.
Root cause and fix.
The belt pulls the scan head back and forth using the metal rail/rod as a guide and steady point. It has a spring load on it pulling the scan head and as the two white plastic bearings that ride on the rail/rod they wear to one side only. The side to the inside of the unit or towards the control panel. You can see this by simply pushing the head back on the forward (towards you end). I slipped a shim cut from .010" plastic under the side of the bearing and reassembled, worked perfectly!
The rear bearing, closest to the left side of cabinet, it is an insert into the plastic scan head. Just cut a shim about 1/8" X 1/4", pry the bearing away from the scan head and slip in place, it will stick in place as the bearing is a snap fit to start with. The bearing will now "snap" back onto the raid/rod and hold the scan head in alignment. You can really see the difference on the opposite end of the bearing.
Hope this helps.
The printer has only printed 14791 pages in less than 5 years. The two bearings are probably worth .02 cents each at OE level and if they had been twice as big, 1" long instead of 1/2" long would have never worn.
