HP ScanJet 2100C

I am unable to use my ScanJet 2100C to copy as the
Message given is "Scanner not found".   I have tried to download from my Software disc, and Internet, but I still get the same mesage "Scanner not found".      I change my PC from a Compaq MV740 to a Flatron Wide LG - all the files were transferred, but the Scanner Program failed.   If I go through the Printers and Faxes file, I am eventually able to scan .. but not clearly, and with some extra work invoved!  All connections appears correct to the two machines (my son-in-law) has checked   .. but he too is defeated!   Could you perhaps assist with aby further suggestions.

I had a similar problem when I upgraded to Vista. Try running setup.exe from within the software CD ( in the english folder I think) rather than using the autorun.

Cant get scanjet 2100C to work with Windows Vista

Unfortunately, HP doesn't support Vista for that scanner model.

However, some have reported success using windows 2000 drivers on Vista.

You can give the windows 2000 drivers a try here:

Be sure to unplug the scanner from the computer BEFORE installing the driver / software.

Unable to scan using HP Scanjet 3200C in Win XP Pro

Hi Shantala,

HP advises that, on some systems, the scanner hardware may get into an error state that will keep the scanning software from finding the 3200c ScanJet. If your scanner still isn't found after installing this driver and software update, please follow the directions below:
  1. Unplug the power cable from the 3200c ScanJet.
  2. Unplug the parallel cable(s) from the 3200c ScanJet.
  3. Shut down the PC and wait for ten seconds.
  4. Plug in the power cable to the 3200c ScanJet.
  5. Plug in the parallel cable(s) to the 3200c ScanJet.
  6. Power your PC on.
If you still have the problem, uninstall the driver from device manager, and download and run this .exe file version of the driver instead.. and if necessary, repeat the above steps..

Hope this helps
