Let's compare bananas with bananas and apples with apples... if you have the unit ON with some lights and some activity going on, than the POWER CORD is just fine... you seam to refer of a communication problem (not a power problem) from the unit to the computer... normally for HP multi-function devices you have to install a USB cable and the software FIRST than connect the unit when the installer ask you to do so, FIRST UN-INSTALL all drivers & software you installed previously, reboot the computer with the unit OFF, connect the USB cable, than pop in the installation CD, go through the setup (accordingly) than when the installer ask you to connect the unit, turn it ON, than let the installer finish the configuration...

Hope this helped!

What kind of USB cord do I need for a HP scanjet 2200c


The best thing to do is to take the scanner to a computer shop so they can see what cables and power adapter you need.
You can download a driver and manual from this WEB site.

Where do I get a new power cord for the HP 3970 which has been in storage for a while, but I want to begin using it agains, and can't locate the power cord. HP has discontinued this model and nothing on...


The correct part number for just the "brick style" power module (AC Adapter) for an HP Scanjet 3970 is L1970-80003. It is a specific 12V DC 2 Amp module. Today it can be purchased for $18.06 plus shipping from the HP Parts Store. However, if you are looking for just the power cord to your scanner's AC adapter, this brick style power module AC adapter does require a separate standard C13 detachable power cord to the specifications of your area, for instance, in the USA the power cord to connect the scanner to the power module AC adapter is part number 8120-6260, and it is a common power cord for monitors and computers. I learned all this because I had a scanner error message when I tried to use a different power module on the HP Scanjet 3970 when I lost the power cord to the original module. I hope this info helps somebody else, too.

My hp sacanjet 3970 doesn't work


Most likely cause of the "Scanner could not be initialized" error on the HP Scanjet 3970 is due to using an incorrect power adapter and cord -- the only power module and cord that work for the HP Scanjet 3970 are these part numbers: 8120-6260 for the power cord and L1970-80003 for the power module / AC adapter I hope this info helps you.

I can't find the Serial Number on my HP Scanjet 3970 Flatbed


The 10 character serial number and the product number are located (on my 3970) on a sticker on the inside of the cover.

You can verify that you have the correct numbers if you enter them at

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/WarrantyLookup.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodSeriesId=298547&prodTypeId=15179

That will tell you if they are the wrong numbers as well as the warranty status of your scanner.
