Driver for windows7 x64


These instructions will make your scanner work with Windows 7:

1) Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

Find this line:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4

Insert this line above it:
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701

The section should look like:
; Win2k Models
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

4) save the file and exit

5) delete HP53STI.CAT

6) Install the driver

Open Device Manager

Find the HP Scanjet device in teh device tree (yellow exclamation mark no doubt)

Right click it

Select Properties

Select Update Driver

Select Browse my comptuer

Select 'Let me pick'

Select 'Have disk'

In the dialog, type c:\sj664

Two unsigned HP Scanjet 5300c drivers will appear

Click on the top one

click next

it will tell you to reboot

7) reboot your PC

8) after rebooting, try it out!


I found this worked for me in PrecisionScan 3.03 TWAIN mode only. The HP-WIA part is broken in this scenario and does not appear in the WIA manager GUI at all.

XP X64 Instructions

This is modified from a vista post, so most of the credit goes to that post that helped me make it work on xp x64.

Go to this link and download the official Hp 5300C WinXP 32-bit drivers to use with x64, the one posted on hp's site does not work.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj664en.exe

2) Run the .EXE and then cancel the install, don't install the software, haven't been able to get it to work.

This extracts the files to the directory c:\sj664en

3) Edit the hp53sti.inf file

4. Find this line:
[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models
5. Change it to all of the following, all 6 lines:

[Manufacturer]
%Mfg%=Models,NT.5.1, NTamd64
[Models.NTamd64]
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Usb.NT,USB\VID_03f0&PID_0701
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\VID_04E6PID_800000402ED4
%HPSJ5300C%=SJ5300C.Par_NT,LPTENUM\Hewlett-PackardHewle76A2

Don't change anything else.
Save.

6. delete HP53STI.CAT

Go to device manager and update driver or add new hardware
select the directory these files are in
and it will install or select the scanner from the list.

now install a second party scanner program and it will work the one that comes with the installer for hp doesn't work.
so any second part scanner program should now work with the drive that this installs.

How can I save a scan to my computer? I just got a printer/scanner and there are no Save, or Save As options in the HP scan software?? Help!!!


I would like to know the following, please get back to me
* HP Printer model

as a work around you can perform the steps below to save a scan in the computer.

Try to scan using one of the two methods below:

1. Scanning from Microsoft Paint:

Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Paint.
Click File and then click From Scanner or Camera.
If this option is not available, Please let me know.
If more than one image source is connected, select the
HP all-in-one product and click Next. The scanning software will appear.
Preview the image by selecting Preview, or click "Scan" to scan the image directly into Paint.
The image will open in paint for editing and/or saving.

2. Using Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)

Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.

Have HP scanjet loaded software and driver but it just does not work checked electrical connection and usb ok thought it had gone wrong so bought new HP g2410 still cannot load checked hardware manager...


Having re-read your post it seems you have a visioneer scanner and installed HP scanjet drivers so this would definitely be an issue.

Ok, unplug usb lead between scanner and pc.
go into add/remove programs and remove any scanner software that may be showing.
load correct scanner driver (preferably the latest version from the manufacturers website).
plug in scanner usb lead when prompted and turn scanner power on.
It should then install correctly.

If usb stuff starts playing up it's usually easier to unplug it, uninstall it then re-install it using the latest drivers from the manufacturers' website. Don't just stick the disc in and re-install. Can save hours of messing about.

I have never used a scanner please explain


If you are just installing the scanner, follow the setup instructions that came with it, and make sure the software gets installed. If it is already installed, then there should be a program in the computer that can start the scanner and get the image of whatever is on the scanner. Look where the scanner programs are at(usually this is a folder on the start menu). Also, there may be a scan button on the scanner itself. Pushing this button will start a scan and send the image to the computer.(the scanner program should start)

My scanner will not scan i think the software is gone off my computer


A couple of things could be out of place.

First of all, you need to use software that can scan, some scanners come with software to use, otherwise you have to use an image program that can "Aquire".

"Aquire" is usually found in a file menu of image editing programs, except Microsoft Paint.
In the case of "Microsoft Office" programs, it's in the Insert-Image-from scanner or camera menu.

If your scanner is not listed in these menus, or Aquire dosn't appear on these menus, your scanner driver is not installed. That then will be your first step.

Hope this helps.

Loading HP scanjet 4800 onto vista


Hi there from Germany - English isn't the best but got the same problem solved so give it a try:

- first connect scanner to computer without having the drivers already installed
- next computer claims driver cd put in yours from XP or select downloaded XP-driver
- reboot
- try if scanner works - sometimes they do already
- if not head over to System management or system control what it's called in english
- choose add device and choose scanner
- now Windows tries to install a xerox-driver - allow this
- reboot
- and now it should work - if not sue hp! (But buttons for direct printing etc. might not be working anymore - except via the software itself - no more via the buttons

Hope I could help
