Question about HP ScanJet 6200C Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

HP ScanJet 6200C

My scanner quit being recognized by the computer. Now all I get is a "scanner not intialized" error message. I have tried reinstalling the software and that did not resolve the problem. I am using XP-Pro. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    I went out and bought a new cable. Didn't change any thing. The computer makes the connect sound when the USB is plugged in, but the software still can't find the scanner. I went to the HP website and downloaed the latest software but that didn' help either. Thank yo for your reply.

    I am using Windows Xp.

How to scan to a PC using a HP scaner

With XP, no problem. Uninstall the scanner from the computer, and then reinstall it. It should work fine.
With later Windows (Vista or 7), I believe that your scanner does not yet have a working driver. Anyone else know of an available driver for either of these... please chime in.

I'm afraid you won't find them around anymore.

You will have to send it to HP Directly.

Go to go to support, live chat with a tech support person.

HP doesn't have a Vista driver for Scanjet 3400c. I'm afraid your scanjet isn't compatible with Vista.

Most likely the destination folder for the scanning is a shared folder with limited rights. As the administrator, reset the permissions for that folder or redirect the software to a common folder with read/write/creation etc... access.

Also, make sure you are using the HP provided drivers and not those from Microsoft.
