Question about HP ScanJet 4670 Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

I have an HP ScanJet 4670 with TMA. Trying to use the TMA to scan slides. When I press "scan film" on the HP Image Zone application, I get an error message.. "TMA could not be found". I have the TMA plugged into the scanner and power to the scanner. When I wiggle the TMA plug in the scanner frame, I briefly get light from the TMA to illuminate the slide but, this will not persist. I think i have a faulty plug connection between the TMA and scanner. Any ideas about how to fix that? Thanks.

I'm afraid there are no drivers running under Windows Vista for this unit.
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD (

You could also partition your HDD (

I have connected the TMA to my hp scanjet and I have put a slide in it, but when I scan it, all I get is a scan of the whole glass and the slide is black.


When scanning slides and negatives the scanner lid lights up so light passes through the slides and negatives and the image is picked up by the sensor.
If the image of the whole glass is black then most likely the lamp in the lid is faulty.

With the scanner you should have received a cd "HP Scanjet 4800 Series HP IMage Zone Software. Mine is version 5.3 for Windows/8.4 for Mac OS v 10.2.
I have this installed on a pc.
When the button on the lid (2nd from left ) is pressed this opens a window HP Scanning.
On this is an option to "Scan Negatives using the TMA (Transparent Materials Adaptor)" Select this and follow any further instructions concerning optons.

HP Scanjet 5590 Lamp Error "Bad or fading lamp (error -4430)" Fixable? Can I do it? Best source to purchase?


From HP forums:

The first thing I would do is to make sure your TMA is properly attached. Next, make sure your software is up to date and that any applicable patches have been applied.

Next, what OS are you using? What application are you trying to use to scan with? Can you scan from any other application such as word or another graphics program?

I WANT TO KNOW THE MEAN OF ''ERROR 06'' IN HP SCANJET 8270 AND THE POSIBLE SOLUTIONS... THANKS


If LCD displays Error 06 or Error 09 , the TMA might require service
Press SCAN PICTUREc00068011.jpg button once (see Figure 3 above). The TMA lamp should turn on (see Figure 4 above). If pressed a second time, the TMA lamp turns off (if TMA is detected). NOTE: The scanner carriage lamp should be off when the TMA lamp is on and should be on when the TMA lamp is off. The only time the TMA could not be detected is if the accessory cable is not plugged into scanner

I am looking for instructions on this product.


Step 1: Open the scanner lid and remove the Transparent Materials Adapter (TMA).
Step 2: Place your slides or negatives into the appropriate template. Follow the orientation indicated by the icons on the template.
Step 3: Tip: If you are scanning fewer than the maximum number of negatives with the TMA, cover the empty spaces with the provided light shields to avoid letting any extra light in
Step 4: Place the template on the scanner glass, aligning the arrow on the template with the indicated mark on the scanner bed.
Step 5: Close the scanner lid and press the Scan Film button (or select the Scan Film option if you're using the HP Solution Center application on your PC).
Step 6: In the Scanning from dialog box, click Change Settings.
Step 7: Under Scan Shortcut Settings, select your Scan Type (either Negatives (TMA) or Slides or Positives (TMA)).
Step 8: Under Scan To select Save to file. Then click Scan.
Step 9: Under the Save Location dialog box, click Browse and enter the destination folder of your choice. Click OK and follow any on-screen instructions to finish scanning. The scan will be sent to the destination folder you selected. s.gif s.gif

HP Scanner 3570C-can not scan my slides


According to the manual, you should always scan from the HP scanning software to scan slides using Scanjet transparent material adapter. There is no button that you can set for default slide scanning properties. This is shown on page 8 of the manual for the 3500 series scanners. The manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/72847/Hp-Scanjet-2300c-Series.html?page=13#manual .

Since the scanner works with pictures, make sure that the TMA adapter is plugged into the back of the scanner. Next open the software, HP Photo & Imaging Director. In most versions of Windows, press Start and look for the HP programs heading. Expand this to find the executable file. Alternatively, find the icon on the desktop or find the software in the file explorer (Program Files/HP/ on 32-bit versions, Program Files (x86)/HP) and then the appropriate sub-folder. Now try to scan the slides when they are loading in the adapter.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your OS if you are still having problems. Some newer OS versions may have installed generic drivers for the ScanJet 3570C. The generic driver might not communicate with the TMA properly.)
