Question about HP ScanJet 8270 Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Scanner scan but then locks up at the end

My new HP Scanjet 8270 scans nicely, but then at the end of the scan it locks up and makes an odd knocking noise. The only way to stop the noise is to unplug the scanner. The software freezes up too. I've tried loading the drivers on 3 different WinXP Pro SP2 machines, and it acts the same way on all of them.

I tried scanning from the glass and from the ADF feeder... same result. It scans and then locks up and begins a light knocking noise.

Any ideas?

Windows 7 and HP scanjet 8250, 8200, 8270; front panel buttons and searchable...


How to install a HP scanjet 8250 in windows 7 with full features like double side scans and searchable PDF creator.

The basic driver automatically installs with windows 7.
The basic driver lets you scan one page at a time and does not let you do advanced options like double side and creating searchable PDF's.
HP has a software package listed for the HP 8270 scanjet that works properly with the 8250 scanner. I would assume that any scanner in the 8200 series would work with this software.
For full scanning features, I installed the HP photoshop essentials and the HP solution center. Find the download here, on HP's web site.... http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1118286&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=1118292&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4062
Click on the software link .."HP scanjet Full Feature Software and Driver"
After the install run the setup and follow the directions,
After the install, the front panel buttons on the scanner should now work. You should also be able to create PDF's(searchable) with the one touch of the scanner button.

During scanning I am hearning a knocking sounds and after the carriage finishes it's path ; th screen show half image


Knocking -- whether it comes from an automobile or a finely tuned scanner -- never good.

It sounds like an obstruction is preventing the scanner from moving fully across.

You can test this by repeating the scan but keeping the lid up. Please don't look directly at the bright light... but see if you can observe the movement from watching the edge of the path.

Other than that... see if you can make the scanner completely level.

It could be as simple as replacing a belt that is slipping, but you might call HP if this scanner is very new.... you might be eligible for a warranty replacement.

HP 8270 does not scan on windows Vista . Could not complete scan is the error message


Make sure you have the newest vista drivers located here - also, make sure that the scanner platen is travelling the full length of the scanner, it's not being hung up somewhere causing it to jam. Try to scan while the cover is open to watch the scanner head travel.

Pages scanned are backwards (read right to left and all letters are backwards...as if holding up to the light and trying to read from the backside)


Pls check if the 'mirror' option is on in the software setting. The scanner 'reads' normal way always.

Automatic Cropping...


Before turning off the autocrop feature, reset the software to the default setting. Then turn off the autocrop feature. Some scanning software need to be reset to the original default condition and accept software switches only then!

How do I scan colored paper and still read print? HP Scanjet 8270


First thing to try is just play with all the scan settings to see what gives you the best result - try changing resolutions, type of document, type of output document, contrast, brightness, type of scan. If this doesn't give you any better results, then one of the best ways to do this is to get some plastic sheet of the same or almost the same as the predominant colour on your forms (you can go one step further and make a multi coloured filter if you are feeling creative and your forms are all identical). The text jumps out of the page and most scanners will give you a good scan - just make sure the filter is not too thick/dark. Hope this helps :)
