The E6 Scanner lamp can be substituted by a standard
F8T5CW lamp. It is 12 insches long, uses 8 watts, is in the
T5 tube size with two prongs at each end and cool white, not
warm white. The replacement lamp works fine.

Unless this scanner cost more than a hundred dollars, it is hard to imagine how to fix it in a cost effective way. Good scanners are pretty cheap now, too, around $30. You could also try to find a replacement scanner of the same type on eBay...

Can I buy and replace lamp myself?

Yes, a replacement lamp can be purchased through EBay, you must have the number of the lamp. Then look it up, the company is Pure Glare I think. It can cost anywhere from 30-80 dollars.

Are you looking for the Ballast for that model? You should be able to google the model number with the word ballast after it and find it with ease.

It is a nasty game where they don't sell parts, just the entire board.

I am here to give you as much help as possible.

Lamp expired can I find a new lamp & can I replace it myself

Hello Ann Welford,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: I don't recommend replacing the bulb on this unit.
Not only did HP design these scanners in such a way as to elimnate "User changable parts" but it would not be cost effective. You can buy a replacement scanner for this unit for close to $75.00 and it will have newer features and software controls.

Have a great day!

Where can I buy a Lamp FH&-3282

You could probably buy one directly from a third party part supply store over the internet like Ames Supply Company, Katun, or Precision Roller. I only use Canon parts myself but these parts may be a substitute for Canon. But I believe the Part Number is FH7-6080-000 for the scan lamp. Be sure to uplug the copier before replacing the scan lamp because the connector has AC voltage at the contacts. Good Luck.
