Hello,

I have a HP scanjet 5200C for many years that worked fine.
I have Win98, and the scanner is connected to an USB connexion.
I used it regularly with no problem; worked fine 10 days ago. Suddenly that week
when I tried to scan I faced a
"could not find your scanner"
I uninstalled, reinstalled, with the genuine CDs that were suplied with the
scanner. With no improvement.

The electrical supply is OK (when I disconnect, then reconnect the 220VAC, the
scanner lamp lights up. So it is not a problem of fuse.

I am wondering what to check.

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance,

Didier

Have you looked on the HP site. This link may help. It is an HP support
document about the 5200C not responding.:
