Default Laserjet 4L Code 52

Pulled an old beast out of storage (HP Laserjet 4L)... was intermittenly having issues but I was able to print test pages with some success.

Brought it home, and I keep getting service error code 52, which is described as:

A temporary error has occurred.
Power cycle the printer.
The scanner assembly is improperly fitted.
There is a scanner cable problem.
The laser scanner assembly is defective.
The DC controller PCA is defective.

Is there a common cause for this, or is something blown up? It already has issues leaving streaks/marks on blank/all pages (worn/old drum in cartridge) and it's more of a hobby than an in-use printer. So I'm not looking to replace major components.
