Question about HP ScanJet 2400 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

I have a scanjet3500C. There is no way to activate the lamp (none of the buttons work on the front panel) and the software director shows me the last thing I scanned successfully. I have a theory it's the power supply. What do you think?

Sounds resonable. You may confirm with a voltmeter. Every lead out shuld have some voltage  value. Usually when power supplies die they have no voltage on one or more secondary leads (Not the 110V going in.)

The scanner keeps jamming. i try to scan form the document feeder &the papers keep getting stuck. It will not complete a scan!what do i do?


In summary: * Very unintuitive, convoluted and unpleasant to use (same on Win2K as XP) - sometimes the SW hangs during scan and needs a reboot - sometimes the SW crashes with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot - sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf
Advantages: I cannot see any advantages with this product
Disadvantages: Software is convoluted and unreliable, paper jams are difficult to clear

function showHideReviewText( sType ) { if ( sType == 'more' ) { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('less'); }; } else { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('more'); }; } } ...with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot
- sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf every page is blank
- very occasionally it scans a document properly
*If the sheet-feeder jams is says to refer to the documentation to clear it, which doesn't exist. There is no way to clear the jam except to pull hard & hope. No levers to release it like one would expect.
*Frequently has error ...
...cycled to work again.

Everything has to be started by pressing a button on an application called "HP Director". There are 4 apps started from this:
1) Scan Picture
2) Scan Document
3) Make Copies
4) View & Print
also Help
also Settings (which are used in conjunction with settings found in (1) and (2)!)
- Each application has to be exited to return to "HP Director"
its a worst scanner
and prone to jamming problem

Installed on XP, ran once or twice but scanner lamp did not light up. Now it won't even load when you double click and I keep getting "scanner not ready" errors. 2 problems. Installed software will not...


You might have to uninstall it along with the software from the control panel, the software from programs area, restart computer and then install it over. Also check the company website for any other downloads from the support area.
Just an idea.
