Introduction

The scanner motor powers the physical movement of the scanning mechanism. This mechanism moves across an entire document, copying its contents, so that the printer can scan, fax, and/or print a copy of the original document. This motor may stop working due to a broken fuse or faulty connection and ultimately may need to be replaced.
