1) Reseat or replace the scanner cable between the D.C. controller and scanner and/or replace/reseat the scanner cable from engine board to scanner assembly.

2) If that doesnt work then replace scanner assembly.
3) If still not working then replace the engine board.
I think I've already given you a link to the service manual.

Scanner problem. I have had scanner with the scnner motor siezed up . Scanner needed to be replaced. I opened the scanner and tried to turnthe mirror by hand and it was stuck. It should spin freely.
