I hate to say this but you will possibly find the cost and time to replace the scanning reader lamp will outway the price of a New scanner.
Sorry to be the bearer of Bad tidings.

My scanner no longer has the internal light that is needed to scan documents. Does the light burn out? And can it be replaced?

Yes, that scanner bulb can fail, as can the circuitry inside that lights it. Microtek's site lists a phone number you can call to check on replacement lamp availability, but you'd probably be better off buying a new scanner. It's not easy to change the lamp, and may turn out not to be the problem after all. Scanners are reasonably priced, and a new one would come with a warranty.

How to clean lamp

Make certain that the scanner is not only turned off, but unplugged. And disconnected from the computer.
Then gently lift the glass off - the glass on which youy place whatever you want to scan.
Once the glass is off, you can clean both sides of the glass, but remember which side was facing up.
Also, if the bulb inside is truly dirty, you can gently clean the bulb.
Replace the glass cover, and reverse your procedure.
Plug it in, turn it on, connect it up again, and try it. It should solve your problems.

Scanner problem

First try a hard reset. Use the following steps to perform a hard reset on an HP Scanjet Scanner.
1. Disconnect all cables from the scanner.
2. Lock and unlock any carriage lock.
3. Place the scanner on a flat and level surface.
4. Wait at least 5 seconds after disconnecting the cables before re-connecting any cables for testing or troubleshooting.

If the bulb is indeed fused, you will need to get the device serviced. This cannot be done by yourself, as the lamps are not sold separately..You can contact HP here:

Bliking red light.

sounds like the 'transportation lock', check the lower left hand side corner of the inside the scanner cover and the left-back side

check this out:

so far it is not a sign of changing the bulb, plus replacing the bulb may cause more, but if in case, please try this out first.

Canon CanoScan5000/5000F - light bulb out

TheComp, I tried what you suggested, but no luck. The scanner is dead. The computer does not even read the scanner through the usb. I called Canon tech support. They tell me that this unit is not serviceable and offered a 20% discount to buy another Canon scanner. No thanks. I don't need another piece of electronic junk. I'll wait for a sale to buy another make. Thanks for your help.

Scanner not working - get error message

First, check to see if the bulb lights up, if not you have bad bulb. the bulb can be ordered separately. if the bulb is good, you have a problem with the main board.
