Hp scanjet 5300c vista

I have followed all the steps you outlined to get my hp scanjet 5300c to work wtih vista.

as soon as I click on the scanjet icon the scan window comes up but another window also comes up showing:

"scanner is being accessed by another application close this application or wait till its done. do you wish to run the applicaiton without the scanner?"

wether I click yes or no I get a window stating:
Hp percision scan has stopped etc....

Can you help me out here?

Thanks
Mark

    Hi, have the same problem as you mention...

  • Anonymous Mar 05, 2009

    configuring the compatibility setting associated with the HP Precision scan icon in the start menu did not work for me.

    Changing the compatibility setting of the HP scanjet icon (accessible from start menu) did not solve the problem for me. Any thoughts?

I had the same problem. I tried various compatibility settings (without success). What fixed it for me was going to the Compatibility tab and checking the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

Using HP 5300C scanner with Windows ME for years.


Are you still on ME? Might be time to step up to XP or vista, nevertheless, try this.. works great on my XP pro and Vista with some tweaking, but straight forward with XP Pro. Good luck! Does it show up in your hardware profiles? What does it say on details when you right click the scanner? When you installed the driver, was it before your plugged in the USB? You may have to uninstall and reinstall it again, this time use the one from HP's website with any patch if applicable.

If you have successfully used it in the past, follow the install prompts and restart.. instead of using the products software, use Windows included scanning program which is much better than the proprietary one designed by HP. As long as you have the proper driver installed your system will know how to apply it.

My hp scanner 5300c scanner has been problematic when installing on two different computers, causing both computers to need repair. Anybody else have a similar experience?


Download and install the latest driver for your scanner. The 5300c Scanjet did not ship with drivers for XP or Vista. A download is required for XP compatibility. Vista or Windows 7 should recognize the scanner without requiring additional software. If the software you are installing is not compatible it can cause issues with the computer. If you are installing from CD please look at the CD to see if it lists your version of Windows.

Faxing w/scanjet 5300c


What operating system you using? Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not supported by your OS, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. Then import in outlook, etc.
