Bulb doesn’t light up, and I have never gotten this one to scan, this of course after XP sees the c, loads its WIA driver, and says that the device is ready to use. All very strange and very frustrating Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. Not sure how to run in this mode. Install the new drivers you downloaded, plug the Scanner back into the USB port, and reboot. Using outdated or corrupt HP ScanJet c drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail. The 2nd laptop has not seen Vuescan nor did I re-install the sjen.

Hewlett-Packard ScanJet C – Free download and software reviews – CNET

Not sure how to run in this mode. Admitting defeat and getting a new scanner looks like the only option left! But when I reviewed the properties to confirm whether or not this was the fix I was disappointed to find that the compatibility setting was NOT at H4p200c Servicepack2 but unchecked and gray’ed out.

Maybe Microsoft made some changes to Vista? This tool will download and update the correct HP ScanJet c driver versions automatically, protecting you against installing the wrong ScanJet c drivers. If you don’t believe me, I can make a video clip of it working on my Vista laptop. This one tip will help you sleep better tonight A few seconds are all you need to get a better night’s rest. Now the research begins on the differences between these 2 laptops. How is the Gold Competency Level Attained?


HpCScanjet didn’t work on 2nd Vista Laptop. Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. Is it a safe assumption that I can relatively safely delete all registry keys after a backup of course that have to do with my HPC i.

But that’s a moot point NOW! Yes, Vuescan is still installed on my Vista system and I have no idea if it influenced the old HP driver to work or not.

The time now is For sure it wasn’t due to an HPC Scanjet driver update since it’s been qualified by HP as to not work and no further support would be offered. And if you do, you will want to make sure those programmes get uninstalled in 5 above.

Old HP4200C scanner problems

Advertisements or commercial links. I’m using the built-in XP driver. Doing a little digging around, I found reference to problems with scanners on systems that have “upgraded to XP.

Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 Downloads: When I pushed the scan button on the scanner, the LED went yellow and did not bring up my selected program Photoshop 6. During the boot sequence, bp4200c seems that the driver tries to initialize the scanner.

Anyone seen this before or have any ideas what might be going wrong? Have tried letting XP recognise the scanner itself and then use XP’s scanning software but no joy. But I’ll remove the Vuescan software tomorrow and go for a retry of the scanner. Have tried without HP drivers and XP detects the scanner and says it’s ready to use buit get error saying not detected when trying to scan with XP.


I wouldn’t mess with the registry either at this point.

One of the only ways that I have got the scanner to work is to lock the scanner using the lock switch under the scanner before powering up the computer. Actually, you just uninstall the scanner from device manager which should be listed under “Imaging Devices”, via Safe Mode, then before hooking the scanner up to the computer, install the driver, then connect the scanner Driver info shows the driver version 1.

Thank you for helping us maintain CNET’s great community. I’ll be looking into this again soon and will post back results. When I tried to acquire an image from the scanner from within Photoshop, I got an error: If you do this in the registry make sure you make a backup of the registry before deleting any entries.
