Mine does the same thing. What's the deal with HP? (whoops - that's a question) I was online with a technician for an hour and they basically said they can't help but are happy to sell me another. just out of warranty -- Poop

Mine does the same thing. Looks like I'm going to the store to buy a new one. I rarely used this thing, but when I did it worked well. Considering the amount of usage I'm disappointed that it is already ready for the trash. Thanks HP!

-Take out the back cover(you will need a small allen-wrench)
-Unplug the speaker attached to this cover
-Carefully unplug and then plug back each of the three wire band (eventually clean them up)
-Put the cover back on

My HP2410 does exactly the same thing! (Not under warranty anymore.) Seems an odd coincidence unless there's a generic fault on these printers.

The scanner motor is having trouble finding its home position. There is no way to fix it, unless you take apart the entire thing (not easy) and replace the defunct mechanism. I do not know what needs to be replaced, but I'm trying to find out.

Mine has the same mechanical clicking sound with an hourglass on the screen. Had the problem several times and previously the problem cleared up on its own (I don't know how, it just did on its own). But not this time. Not a reliable machine, and I will not buy another HP.

I just went on line to find an answer to my problem. Kooks like I am not the only one. Mine is just out of warrenty and I can't get it past the starting point. It just makes noise as if it wants to go but that is it. Pretty disappointing because I have not used it that much

After reloading the driver several times the problem still continued. I found out if you push down on the top of the printer or scanner kind of firm when it boots the printer will start up properly. It works for me. I hope this helps.

It seems to be an intentional error caused by HP. My printer has the same malfunction as those already mentioned: makes noise, flashing green light and hour glass in data screen. So what's the next step to take?
