Question about Umax Astra 1220P Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Needing to hook up my scanner

I was given a 1220p scanner with no cords. I have the cd software but no cords. I have a Dell pc that I want to hook this scanner up to. The only 2 available places to plug in my scanner is a small 9 pin blue plug above my monitor plue and the printer 25 pin plug. What do I need to get as far as a cord and where do I plug it? Thanks, Kimberly

    The scanner is not being noticed by my hardware wizard. I tried everything. I know the scanner works, my mom used it before I brought it home. Is there anything else I can try? I'm not going to give up yet.

    Thx

You are going to need a 25 way cable a "Printer" type cable, A Male to Male, BUT with ALL 25 pins wired thru pin To Pin. This plugs straight into the "Printer" port. These machines often have a "Pass Through" port on them so ya can also connect to a Printer, however if ya printer is USB then it's NOT used. I found drivers below. http://www.opendrivers.com/ driver/211491/ umax-scanner-astra-1220p- vistascan-3.55-parallelport-free-download.html

Vistascan 3.1


I tried to resurrect my Astra 1220P scanner to work with my WinXP Home machine. I began by calling UMAX, they told me I needed XP drivers and suggested that I purchase the VistaScan 3.55 driver CD for $18.00. They also told me to get a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable, which I purchased from Radio Shack. When the CD arrived, I went to work installing the cable & loading the drivers to no avail. The scanner does not appear in the Device Manager list under image devices or other devices, In fact, it is not anywhere in the list.
Of course the scanner does not work. I called them back and asked for assistance, they told me they could not guarantee operation of the unit using a Parallel to USB Adapter Cable...and sorry, we cannot refund the cost of the driver CD. Isn't that special - I was so looking forward to scanning some slides and film because I had previously purchased a Transparency Adapter.
Now I begin my search for a new scanner that will work with transparencies.
Anyone have a suggestion?

My scanner is hpscanjet 3200c & my pc consederit umax astra 1220p


HP OEMed the ScanJet 3200C from UMAX. It's a Astra 1220P UMAX does not support this scanner anymore also HP does not but if you look around you will find file sj648en.exe from HP. This might work on your system, it's for upto Win XP.  I have been trying to get a USB to parallel to work with this scanner, so far so bad many many hours.
