I have no problem using the Print feature of my old trusty printer, but when I want to Scan or make a Copy, my printer goes into Warm Up mode and stays there. This problem doesn't happen everytime, but it is happening more frequently. Is there an easy fix? Or do I need to purchase a new machine?

The reason for the problem seem to be a upset "whitebalance" due to dust scattering light in the chamber and on lamp and sensor. Also the constant on lamp will yellow the white lid insert over time.
It is possible to s l i d e the white part of the lid off, but I will glue it back twisted 180 degrees as I broke off some plastic tabs in the process...
Treating the yellowing with oxalic acid did not do much and therefore the reseating of the white plastic on the lid.
