An answer to my own question for others with similiar isssues that
repaired my issue was dirty optics... and dirty glass.

The scanner head uses the back of the glass for reference and if the
scanner head can not see its end mark on the back of the glass that's
when it tries to go past the end mark.

I could try and fix my HP 2510 All-In-One printer scanner.

When I start the unit up as it begins it's post process the screen goes
to an hourglass and waits for the scanner to become ready at which
point the scanner mechanism tries to get to a ready mode by "seeking
it's home" but never finds it the unit continues to try and go past the
end stop and creates a clicking sound.

Ultimately I believe the unit will stop doing this after a few minutes
but there is definitely something wrong. I found a post by a fellow who
had an idea it might need to be cleaned and lubbed but to no avail
(http://www.noovoodoo.net/live/index.php/archives/thomas-desmond/fixing-an-hp-psc-2510-that-hangs-on-startup/)
so I was hoping someone may have experienced the same issue and has a
solution for it.

I'm not sure what tells the scanner mechanism to "STOP" and why it
isn't, anyway hopefully someone can give me an up on how to try and get
it going.

Thanks,
