I have been finding that scanner failure when the light is still working is usually a dirty scanner. Disasemble and clean the mirrors with windex. No job for a novice, but what have you got to lose at this point.

Now if this still doesn't resolve the issue then it's a definite hardware problem my request would be regardless of the thumbs up,call up hp at 1800-474-6836 and ask for their upgrade machines because u'll get a machine with a 50-60% discount and an extended warranty with a 70-80% discount or u may get a warranty for the next two years for $1....Sorry if I can't help you
