Question about HP Scanjet 5470c Flatbed Scanner
In 4 hours I have managed just 3 successful scans. At each stage of the process the scanner will stop and I will get the error message on the computer screen "Sorry, scanner could not be initialized." This happened most frequently on the initial scan but would also happen when doing the final scan and again when trying to save the final scan. I have hooked up the scanner to 2 separate laptop computers (one ME and one XP) and the result is similar for both computers. Only very occasionally will each stage of the scan work and lead to a satisfactory saved scan, so it must be an intermittent fault.
When you tried it on other lmachines did you load software from same source? If its a software driver problem, you can uninstall the one you have and then try getting a new copy from hp website and reinstall fresh.
If there are any known issues or updates, then the current version will be best anyway and may solve the problem.
Probably not much you can do if its a harware problem, unless its under warranty.
