The scnner is part of the laser. It scans the beam acroos the page. DC controller is power suplly in the printer. You need to take the unit to a service facility if you don't know what these parts are. They are not user servicable parts.

make sure you have the printer plugged direct to the wall and not into a power strip or surge protector sometimes they can throw false errors on laser printers
