There could be several reasons for this issue . It is not recommanded to leave hard drive connected to power when not in use . You should pull of the power plug after shutting down your pc and give it another try after reboot .
Maybe you have updated your OS and there are no more drivers available , like with Vista or W7 .
Try also by deleting driver in Device Manager and software in Control Pannel \ programs . Unplug device , reboot , reinstall sofware driver , reboot , wait for OS to be settled , connect scanner and wait for confirmation of successfull operation .

There is no driver for the scanjet 4470c that works with my Vista system on my Toshiba laptop.

Hi ,
Vista or W7 , it's the same problem : there are no more drivers for Scanjet 4470c .
I find a way though , to make the mine work in WIA mode under W7 32-Bit Ultimate . Should work with Vista too .
Make first sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed .
Now , download and install Freekapture ( it's free ) from :
Load Freekapture , clic on Scan and select WIA-Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode but if you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will freeze .
In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works . As for the buttons , only power button will respond .
Regards .

HP Scanjet 4470c compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.1

You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.

On/Off switch

There may not be a power switch on that model. Many scanners do not have power switches.
