My scanner's light seems to have gone out; when it scans, there's no light travelling up the flatbed. But also, new problem; it just wont scan, the light wont move at all. Any ideas please?

Try resetting the scanner:
It might be possible to rest the scanner if you power it down, unplug it from both power as well as the computer. Give it a few moments, then power it back up and see how it does. If it's looking like it's reset, go ahead and reattach it to the computer, let it detect/install, then give scanning something a go.
Usually the light going out and never coming back on is a bad sign. Might be worth a try to reinstall the scanner drivers/software on the computer, just to rule out software corruption before declaring the old boy deceased.
Best of luck, William

The scanner wont scan.. it says the scanner is out of paper

Remove your scanner from the PC and uninstall the software. Now reinstall the software and connect the scanner to be detected and installed. Check scanner properties to see the settings.
If the fault stays get intouch with Fujitsu dealer.

Won't scan, says usb cord not connected, but it is.

The fact that the printer wont recognize that your USB cable is connected when scanning can be caused by multiple factors.
The first is that the scanner is not installed, please check on your computer in Control Panel / Scanners and cameras to see if it is installed.
If it is, also make sure the software that came with your HP scanner is installed and running.
If this still does not work, try scanning from your computer, if that fails you need to reinstall the drivers and software.

My printer won't scan...ask for "paint"????


What I am going to say may not be relevant to your case, but a scanner needs to scan to some image format( a default format or one you select. So you computer needs to have some kind of imaging software installed.

Apparently, the only kind of imaging software the scanner detects is Windows Paint.

If this is really the case, go to the Internet and download some free imaging software: IRFANVIEW, or The Gimp.

Hope it helps

If there#s no success: I started in disassembling the scanner:
disconnect from power
solve 2 screws on scanner top
remove the glass cover
move the scanner slegde backwards to start position
assemble the scanner
power on etc.
then the same procedure as every ....
i.e. reinstall your hp scanning software
