This looks like a CCD failure. Can the image be corrected in the PC software Which image editor are you using?

SOURCE: HP Solutions Center can not communicate with HP 3500c Scanner

Had exact same problem. Went to HP site and they said to check "add or remove programs" functions (in control panel) and if there are multiple copies of HP software to download their fix. I checked, had multiple copies, downloaded patch and all worked well again.

SOURCE: Unable to scan using HP Scanjet 3200C in Win XP Pro

Hi Shantala,

HP advises that, on some systems, the scanner hardware may get into an error state that will keep the scanning software from finding the 3200c ScanJet. If your scanner still isn't found after installing this driver and software update, please follow the directions below:

  1. Unplug the power cable from the 3200c ScanJet.
  2. Unplug the parallel cable(s) from the 3200c ScanJet.
  3. Shut down the PC and wait for ten seconds.
  4. Plug in the power cable to the 3200c ScanJet.
  5. Plug in the parallel cable(s) to the 3200c ScanJet.
  6. Power your PC on.
If you still have the problem, uninstall the driver from device manager, and download and run this .exe file version of the driver instead.. and if necessary, repeat the above steps..

Hope this helps

HP says they will not even provide a driver update for Vista.
You can try this procedure for VISTA: http://tinyurl.com/yhqzl55 (This is a download link.)

Trouble scanning


My old HP4200 scanner running on Windows 98 gave me a lot of trouble not initializing also. The easiest fix for me was to power up the unit a couple of minutes prior to plugging in the USB cord. This gave the lamp time to warm up and then the unit would (home out) or synchronize when the PC found the scanner. Also if I recall, HP had a driver update for that model. Hope this helps.

After Vista servicepack1, your HP4200C Scanjet should work if you use the latest drivers from sj655en.exe downloaded from HP.com.

Scanjet 4200c Software and Windows XP SP2


Check out the 'Compatibility mode in the Help section of My computer.
Reset the computer to run the software as for Win98.
However if this is a Win 98 scanner then difficulties must be expected.
Scanners nde for Win95/98/Me expect to receive instruction from computer in DOS.
XP is NTFS and many scanners simply do not work with NTFS- not withstand makers having kludges of drivers to download - in general they did not work.
