SOURCE: hp scanjet 3400c installation problem

No Way...
Problem with this scanner is: Microsoft has the wrong driver and HP delivers an uncertified driver that never gets itself correctly installed under XP. Scanner is likely to work just for one session. Do as I did. I am talking Dutch here.

Remove all software first and afterwards also folders like ProgramFiles\Hewlet Packard and other places were files were stored in. Maybe in Control Centre - System - Hardware Devices you may have Optical Devices - HP 3400C, Remove it also with right clicking and doing Undo Installation of the Driver and next unplug the scanner from the computer. Restart. Install the driver for migrating from early Windows version to XP. [url]ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/software/sj652en.exe[/url] and, when done, restart with connecting the scanner when the computer is down. It now seems to be recognized and installed (like you must have seen before). Do not use the scanner on this stage. Now install the update [url]http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&lang=en&cc=us&os=228&product=61835&dlc=en&softwareitem=sj651mu[/url] Restart again. Go back to System - Hardware Devices where you now certainly find the scanner under Optical Devices. Click right on it and choose Properties and Install the Driver Again or something alike in English. On the question Must Windows Search For It? Pick 'Not This Time." Next with "Install From a Certain Location." Then choose "Do not Search, I Want to Install the Driver Myself." Now choose the third and last driver from the list. So one of HP, not from Microsoft. You are only asked the question This Driver is Not Digitally Signed, Still Use It? and click Yes or OK. Your problem is finally solved and the program PrecisionScan will also work. Do remove the program update.exe from the folder or when watching system internals - just do not agree for the update possibility changes.

SOURCE: I have installed HP PHoto

Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.

Install scanjet 4300c scaner in windows 7


1. If your scanner is connected to your computer (USB) uninstall it using the device manager, be sure to check the box that says "delete the driver." And, unplug the USB when it is uninstalled. When I did this had never installed the software previously in my Win 7 operating system.

2. Download the sj657 installer packaged from HP. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/generic...=reg_R1002_USEN
Extract it to a folder. If you double click on the downloaded file it will try to open the setup file automatically and you will get a message saying the software only works on Windows 98, etc. Just cancel and go to the folder (Default location is C:sj657) and continue with the next step.


3. Select the "setup" app and right click on it to get properties, change the compatibility to XP (I did service pack 2). Then run the it and click "OK" on any warnings from Windows 7.

4. Go to the Hewlett-Packard folder now in your Program Files directory, there will be a "HP Precisionscan" folder. It will be the only one unless you have other HP products. Open the Precisionscan LTX folder and change all apps to XP compatibility. I also checked the administrator check box on each app (there are several) just in case.


5. Restart your computer.


6. Plug in your scanner via USB and let it in install. Windows 7 should give you a notice that your 4300C was installed successfully.

The scanner will now work using the LTX software installed on your computer. The buttons on the front do not appear to work, nor can you do anything with it by going to "scanners and cameras" in your control panel. BUT otherwise, it seems to work great and all the functionality is there in the LTX software.

Repeated message "windows cannot load OmnisuperCam" Followed instructions and reinstalled carefully twice. Photo Impression 6 loads and is active. OVT does not appear in control panel 'scanner and camers'


Hi.

This often happens because Image Copier installation must be done in exact order as described in the instruction manual. To fix the problem you need to uninstall and reinstall everything back in right order.Also remember to restart the system when required.
  1. Unplug the image copier
  2. Uninstall the driver (remove from installed scanners and remove driver files).
  3. Uninstall PhotoImpression6
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Install the driver,.
  6. Restart computer
  7. Reinstall PhotoImpression6 software.
During installation ensure that you authorize the system changes when asked. If possible disable any security software.

If that does not fix the problem, then the registry must be cleaned of any entry related to the scanner software. This is rather difficult to be done manual. You can try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started after uninstalling everything, and then uninstalling again if needed (application and scanner are there after SR), and finally reinstalling everything in order. If that does not work you can try a registry cleaner or reinstall the system.

Here a copy of the manual.
