Hi caddillacdzn,

Well the carriage lock is indeed at the bottom of a scanner usually. Now personally I don't have this model of HP scanner but I have something similar to that, and this procedure may work for you. Please check this procedure out from the HP website and see if this will work for you:

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

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..

Hi Silvestre,

So the carriage is locked in your scanner, usually the carriage lock on scanners is mechanical so you should try checking the bottom of the scanner and there is usually a switch there. I personally don't have this HP model scanner, but I have something similar, so this may help you in finding out where to unlock it the bottom. Follow this link:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&docname=c00041061&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN#

Make sure to turn off the scanner and unplug it from the outlet when you move the carriage lock. You can try to move the switch a couple of times, and plug it back and see if after doing that you are now able to use the scanner.

Otherwise you may have to check with your scanner manual for further help, or call up HP Technical Support, since it's possible that it maybe a mechanical problem with the scanner.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
