Some of the HP scanners have a removeable cord like the one on your desktop PC. Check to see if ther'e a loose connection to the scanner end.
Remove and test the fuse or the circuit with an ohmmeter.
If possible, verify power at both ends of the fuse while plugged in.
If there is power through the fuse I'd test the switch. If they are both OK, and power gets through both the fuse and switch, then the unit is likely toast.

Good luck, Jidza

The power to my HP 4400c scanner is not working - just bought a new power cord from HP and still no power. what could be the problem?

Dear Mail472,

We are sorry to hear about your continued issue; even after purchasing a new HP power brick for this scanner.
Sadly, the power brick is only half of the puzzle that provides the full power to this scanner it needs to function. If the unit will not power up on the new brick, then the primary control board inside will need to be examined for a blown fuse or may be dead.
If you are confident enough to open the scanner and check the fuse, unplug the power to the scnner, open it up, and check the fuse. If you would rather; I recommend getting a quote from a local computer store to have the scanner repaired and tested. Or simply purchase a new scanner at a local Retail outlet like Wal-mart, Best Buy, Office Max, or Staples.
Whatever you decide, best of luck with the scanner.

Thanks for using FixYa, and have a great day!

On/Off switch

There may not be a power switch on that model. Many scanners do not have power switches.

HP 4070 Doesn't Power Up

Power requirement per HP specs is 12VDC @ 575mA 6.9w. My scanner and power supply shows 12 VDC @ 1250ma.Over double the power going in that required. No wonder the fuse blows and you have to buy a new scanner because you can't identify or get a replacement fuse. I would suggest you confront HP and have them supply you with a new scanner.

No power

Same problem, too. It must be that planned obsolescence. HP wants $125 for a replacement - right! I got one at a surplus electronic store for $12.95. Make sure it is 12V and at least 1250 mA.
