20 Most Recent HP Scanjet 4070 Flatbed Scanner Questions & Answers

Hi dtvalascho
Your device will run under XP but no more under Vista or Windows XP . HP doesn't support this unit anymore .
Installing a Virtual version of XP on your system or genuine version on a secundary are the only options .

Install the latest drivers from the website. To download:
1 Go to hp.com 2 Click on Support and Drives 3 Enter your product name or number, in this case just type in Officejet 8500 All-In-One 4 Hit go 5 Choose your operating system 6 Hit Next 7 Click on the link that says Driver - Product Installation Software 8 Save it to your desktop
But before Installing the Software, use the Disc that came with the printer so you can do an L3_Uninstall first.

To go for an L3_Uninstall:
1 Go to My Computer (XP), Computer (Vista and Win7) 2 Right Click on the Driver CD, The one that has the HP Logo 3 Open Util 4 Open CCC 5 Double Click on the icon that says Uninstall_L3
The Uninstall will prompt you to restart the computer once it's done. After doing so, Install the newly downloaded software.
Try scanning again, I hope this worked. :)

Power requirement per HP specs is 12VDC @ 575mA 6.9w. My scanner and power supply shows 12 VDC @ 1250ma.Over double the power going in that required. No wonder the fuse blows and you have to buy a new scanner because you can't identify or get a replacement fuse. I would suggest you confront HP and have them supply you with a new scanner.
