Question about HP 4570C Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

I have an hp scanjet 4570C. When I go to scan a picture the picture is black and the screen around the picture is blue, green or some other color. If I'm scanning a full page document, the document is somewhat discolored as well. What should I do?

Could possibly be broken down or faulty scanner.

read this page and go over the steps.

Also try to completely uninstall the machine from your system, first by uninstalling the software, start -> control panel -> uninstall programs or "add or remove programs". find the scanner shoftware and related and uninstall them.

then open the device manager by right clicking on my computer you should find it from your desktop or from the start menu, right click and select Manage.
on the management window on the left side select device manager, now on the right side, find imaging devices, right click on your scanner and select uninstall, if you have the option also check uninstall driver software.

make sure there is no trace of the scanner in device manager and then unplug the scanner.

Restart the computer.

now with the device uninstall and the programs uninstalled. download the latest software for it from

install the softwares and plug in the scanner when asked or after the setup.

the scanner should get installed in few minutes after which you should be able to scan, if not then restart the computer.

Try scanning anything and see if the problem is still there or not?

Thank you,

HP 4570c scans totally black or bluish-green with vertical bars

It could be one of two things:

1) The scanner isn't registering black or white during the initialization processing depending on what color it needs to get it started.

2) The CCD unit in the scanner could be failing which could explain why it was only working briefly before getting worse.

Different colors on the scanner screen

I didn't find a fix. I went to Best Buy and they said it would cost more than it was worth to fix. So I bought a new one. Thanks, mittenshadow
