SOURCE: HP ScanJet 5590 and OS 10.3.9
I would do a manual uninstall and make sure to do the device utility at the end and follow the directions step by step from this link.
Redownload the drivers and make sure they are for 10.3.9 and the full feature software to make sure the right drivers are going to be installed.
Also I would unplug the unit while it is on and plug in directly to the wall to make sure not a power issue. The printer does not share power well and pulls it in large amounts - when it can't get it it throws little power fits and sometimes will not turn on at all or it gives error messages.

Scanning is possible in 'Text' mode and 'Picture' Mode. In text mode, which is simple 'Black & White", this can happen, particulalrly if the text is in color. Either you increase the contrast settings or scan the document in Grey/color and convert it to B&W using the software. By this you need not check if there is output!. ( I am assuming that otherwise the scanner is performing okay). File size in B&W is very small as compared to Grey/color.
