Have you plugged it into a different USB port recently. If so either delete the printer from Device Manager and let the system find it again. Or plug it back into the original USB port.

I get a error initializing scanner?


Background of issue- When 4345/M4345 boots up, amber light comes on under start button and the message "Initializing Scanner" is displayed. The unit will print but will not preform any scan functions.

Steps taken to try to resolve issue:
1. Updated firmware
2. Restored factory defaults
3. Took off cover in back of printer covering scanner controller board and reseated all cables
4. Took apart scan unit and cleaned (2)mirrors in scan head
5. Took off back cover of unit, reseated cables coming from scanner controller board
6. Ran Scanner Test, in menu (which everything functions properly)

Usually I would say scanner or controller board has failed but I had 3 M4345 come down with this issue in one week. The only resolve i've found for this issue is repetitively turning on and off the unit until it comes up without "scanner initializing" message. Once it comes up it functions 100% until the unit is turned off and issue will come back.

I'm at a loss here with so many units having same issue, open to any advice. I once took the formatter out of bad unit and put it in good one and it caused the issue in the good one but i'm double verifying this tonight. Thanks for any help.

HP L7650 Scanner Could Not Be Initialized in Leopard (Not Found)


If you're using Vista, this happens all too regularly with HP printers. I've had a few where I have to uninstall everything then re-install to make things work.
Two weeks later the same thing, same process.
Try downloading latest drivers from HP and see if that helps. HP don't admit there's a problem.
Don't seem to have this problem with Epson printers tho.
