If any smoke or burnt electrical smell coming from any electronic equipment, then it is caused by a short circuit in the equipment and in most cases the cost of repair may not be justified.

Hi ,
You could try using a third party twain program like FreeKapture :
Load FreeKapture, clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . When saving , you'll get the desired option .

Fuse for hp 3970

After you have UnScrewed and Opened Up the Scanner.
On the Circuit Board (Green Board with Electronic Components) just where you Plug in the Power Pin there is a Small Glass Tube Looking Component.
You need to replace that with a 1.2mA Fuse.

Hope this Helps

Unable to scan using HP Scanjet 3200C in Win XP Pro

Hi Shantala,

HP advises that, on some systems, the scanner hardware may get into an error state that will keep the scanning software from finding the 3200c ScanJet. If your scanner still isn't found after installing this driver and software update, please follow the directions below:
  1. Unplug the power cable from the 3200c ScanJet.
  2. Unplug the parallel cable(s) from the 3200c ScanJet.
  3. Shut down the PC and wait for ten seconds.
  4. Plug in the power cable to the 3200c ScanJet.
  5. Plug in the parallel cable(s) to the 3200c ScanJet.
  6. Power your PC on.
If you still have the problem, uninstall the driver from device manager, and download and run this .exe file version of the driver instead.. and if necessary, repeat the above steps..

Hope this helps
