The scan module moves to the left and the bulb illuminates. When it does, cycle the power again. 2. Repeat the first step until the scan module is about 3 centimeters (about 1 inch) from the right edge of the scan glass. 3. Turn on power by using the power switch. If the error persists, replace the scanner assembly. See Scanner assembly on page 148.
