Question about HP ScanJet 2200C Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Exposed to 220 V AC for a second

The scanner was working nicely with 220 V (50 Hz) to 110 V Down-Converter since last few years.
But accidentally for a second or so the toggle switch of converter was kept on normal i.e. bypassing it and the PSU got 220 V AC supply. The scanner stopped working. All the internal incomming voltages are norma. No burnt IC or SMD Component. But still scanner is not working.
No indication, no helogen lamp and no trace of hum from stapper motor.
Please Help me.

    why my scanner didn't work

  • Adhir Mar 18, 2008

    Dear Guest,

    Thanks for taking a keen interest in my problem and helping me out.

    But Sir, the problem seems to be a Hardware-problem. Not Software-problem like improper installation or absence of perticular driver or something like that.

    The scanner has stopped working in the sence it is NOT showing any sign of its working condition after the disaster have took place.

    If any body could e-mail me the service mannual with the schematic diagram of this perticular model, we can check it more authentically.


    Thank you again

Why would the Dryer not heat after an international move from Austrailia 230V 50 hz to Thailand 220V 50 Hz, when programs, air movement, evrything else functions properly?

Your problem is one electric leg has no power. You are getting power for a single need. But you need double that power for the heating need.
like 110. And. 110. Equals 220 Soo 110 is supplying one need ,that needs only 110 But the heating coils need 220 that is where the second leg comes in... Be sure bothe breakers have powers going out. Into dryer

I live in China and brought a Keurig back with me from America. I went to plug it in a standard converter. The machine turned on for a few seconds and then shut off. I have tried turning it on again. It...

My guess is that the heater in it draws too much power for a converter. US is 110 volts, is China 220 volts? That is a step up transformer and they are not reliable.

yes 220 volts

voltage in china Google Search

Okay, a Keurig draws 1500 watts of power.


I wonder if you bought a step DOWN transformer, 220 to 110? That would light up for a second until the heater element kicked in.

Does you look like this
Goldsource STU 2000 Step Up Down Voltage Transformer Converter AC 110 220...
or this
ELC 2000 2000 Watt Voltage Converter Transformer Step Up Down 110V 220V...

The other consideration is that the Chinese are masters of copying, so they must make a Keurig clone.

The downside is that the Chinese make rubbish electronics like your transformer.

I bought a machine from the US last week with 110V specifications and used a step down converter for use in Pakistan which has 220V specifications. When plugged in and turned on, there was a pop sound...

It sounds like something blew in a big way. Likely to be the main power supply board. The step down transformer should have reduced it to the 110 volts you require. Check the transformer to make sure it does actually reduce from 220 to 110 vac. Also check the hertz , (hz) ( cycles) Australia uses 50 hz at 240 volts ac. im unsure what hz USA or Pakistan is. Confirm your transformer output meets the electrical specification of the coffee machine. There may be a local Nespresso machine repairer who will convert yoru USA spec machine to Pakistan voltage thus negating the need for a transformer. It may be a bit expensive replacing all the electrical comonents though, it may still be worthwhile.

How do i make it PAL 60 rather then PAL 50?

PAL 50 is the european broadcast standard, as I am sure you are aware.

There is no "PAL 60" - If you are trying to set up for use in the United States, the correct setting is NTSC.

Not all sets will allow you to change from one broadcast format to the other. You must consult your manual to see if it is capable to set it up for NTSC. If so, follow the instructions and the set up menu.

One very important item.... US households are wired to run off of 110 to120 volt, 60 hz AC. The European standard is 220 volt, 50 hz AC. You must check your manual to see how to set the correct input voltage.... some sets can configure themselves automatically, and some have a small "slider" switch to change from 220 to 115 (or it may say 110 or 120, but they all serve the same purpose). Make sure you do this BEFORE powering up a European set in the US!

I'm in Germany where outlets are different so we have to use a converter box. My AC adapter is not cooperating and has a yellow light until you try to turn it on and then turns red. Whats the problem?

What type of 'AC adapter'? And 'converter box?'
Since the power supplies are pretty certainly 'switched mode' the 50 Hz line frequency shouldn't bother it so all you should need is a step-down transformer (220-110 VAC) unless the 360 specifies (for example) 100-250 VAC in which case you should need nothing other than a plug adapter. If it is specified only for US power (~120 VAC) you may be able to get a step-down transformer from the local German utility. When I left there (many moons ago, I confess) they provided these on a free loan basis.

Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)


Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Convert 110 volts to 220 volts

Hi, 1. To convert 110 to 220 - use a step down transformer between your mains and your unit with the watt rating equal to or greater than required by your unit; 2. If I got your brand/model right, I believe it is capable of either 50 or 60 Hz. However, if for some reason you still would want to convert convert 60 Hz to 50 Hz, it will be difficult and technically complicated. At best that I can offer is for you to get hold of an AC-DC-AC converter with the following specs input 220VAC/50Hz output 110/60Hz. 3. NTSC to Pal N would require complicated circuitry and if ever available would be expensive. Past experiences have shown me that any color conversion is not that satisfactory. It may be to your advantage to return the unit and have it replaced with a region correct model. Good luck and kind regards.
