how to use a Toshiba motor LSM-AX-7 / RG1-1960? Answered

I have been harvesting parts from old printers, hard drives, CD's etc for re-use in projects.

One of the items from an old HP Laserjet II printer is the above motor. It spins a mirror reflecting the laser. The assembly is a board plus motor. It is a BLDC motor I believe with 6 pairs of windings.

Are there any articles/info. on the wiring of this and can it be re-used successfully.

Thanks in advance

It is just a stepper motor....
Can be powered like any other stepper motor, for the differences between 6 and 4 wires you can check Wikipedia or Google.
