Question about HP Scanjet 3300c Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Blown fuse? My scanner was working well and suddenly I plugged in wrong power pack and might have blown a fuse..I looked all over the web and can't get a verification on where it is located. I took apart scanner and see a small fuse that seems to be "locked in" between two fixed posts..I am afraid of bending them to get fuse out but is this what I need to do? Or is there a fuse that is elsewhere inside the unit...I appreciate any feedback on this topic..Dan

My Dolce Gusto coffee maker suddenly stopped working power will not turn on

Most coffee makers have a thermal fuse which prevents the appliance from meltdown or fire in case of an electrical short.
Thermal fuses are made for various temperature limits. Open your appliance find the fuse which looks like a resistor or diode with a metal shell. Note the part no. or temperature. Look online and purchase a replacement fuse. They are inexpensive. The fuse needs to be soldered or crimped on connectors in place of the blown fuse. The fuse can be checked with a multimeter for continuity using the ohms setting.

The lights on my dash board do not work. the instrument gauge still works, but the lights do not. is it a fuse? and if so, what is the location to replace it?

It is possible that there is a blown fuse. However, did you check to see that the panel light dimmer switch is not turned down? The panel lamps on your vehicle are actually controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). There are several fuses that supply power to the BCM. If your panel light dimmer switch is not turned down, you will need a scanner to find out what is wrong with your panel lamps.
If you have a blown fuse you need to find out WHY it is blown! Simply replacing it WILL NOT fix your vehicle.

Suddenly I can not charge my iPhone 3gs (iOS 4.2.1) with my 12V charger in the car. Any idea what is wrong ?

When pluged into the car liter outlet does the moniter light come on? 1 check the fuse by unsrewing the pin tip of the plug, look to see if the fuse is blown, you may need a OHM merter if you can't see if the wire is still in one piece. 2 check the cigar lighter in the vehical with another plug or lighter to see if it works if not then find whitch fuse is blown in the fuse box of the vehicle, and replace either or both.

I have an 01 grand marquis with no spark and no fuel pump. I plugged a code scanner into the plug under the dash turned on the key and the scanner does nothing. All the dash lights and everything else...

Not exactly. The scanner doesn't get its power from the computer of the car, but from another pin, which is the 16. You may have some blown fuses to the computer, which could be the same fuse for the pin 16 which is the power for the scanner. You can check on the Data Link Connector pin 16 if you have 12v, if you don't start looking for blown fuses.

Radio wont come in all of a sudden worked fine 2 days ago.

Check your conection in plug, plug fuse. If these are ok have a look inside your radio and see if the fuse has blown inside on the circuit board where your power cord enters the radio.

Can't read codes with code reader

you most likley have a blown fuse. the fuse for the connector and cig lighter are usually on the same circuit . if you have a owner manuel check and see which fuse is for the obd/cig lighter. if you dont have a manuel then check every fuse in the box and see if you find a blown one. the plug whare the scanner connects is what powers the scanner so if you cant find a blown fuse then you know youre not getting power to the plug for some reason.

Computer plug pins

Check the fuse for lighter. If this fuse is blown there won't be any power to the aldl and the scanner won't communicate.

No power

Check the power cable and test a different power outlet.

If you are in UK also check the fuse inside the TV power plug.

If you do not find anything wrong , then either the fuse on power board, or one of the power board capacitors had blown, and the TV must be disassembled and tested to fix the problem.

CanoScan8400 Suddenly Doesn't Work

I had the same problem about a year ago. The solution was to replace the power cord AND don't leave it connected to the powers source when the scanner is not in use, or it will burn out again.
