Power supply
The power supply has an attached cable that plugs into the back
of the scanner. The connector on the end of this cable has a
green LED that is on when the power supply is functioning
correctly.
The power supply also has an AC cable that is connected to the
power supply on one end and plugged into a power outlet or
surge protector on the other end.

USB cable
Check that the green LED on the power supply cable
connector is on.
If the green LED is not on, ensure that power is available to
the power outlet or surge protector that the AC cable is
plugged into.
If power is available to the power outlet or surge protector
but the green LED is still not on, the power supply might be
defective. Contact HP Support for assistance.
The USB cable is connected between the scanner and the
computer.

Scanner will not turn on
Scanner does not scan right away
Scanned image is fuzzy
Scanner is scanning items very slowly

Vertical white stripes appear on the printed page
Scanner buttons are not working correctly
Scanner will not turn on
If the scanner will not turn on when you press the front panel scanner buttons, check the
following:
●
●
●
The scanner may be turned off. Be sure the power rocker switch located on the back
of the scanner is in the on position.
The scanner may have been unplugged. Check to see that the power supply has
not become disconnected from the scanner or unplugged from the power source.
The power supply might not be working. For more information, see Check the cables.
Scanner does not scan right away
Make sure the power rocker switch on the back of the scanner is in the on position.
If the scanner has not been used for awhile, the scanner lamp might need to go through
a warm-up period before scanning can begin. If the scanner lamp needs to warm up, it
takes a moment after starting the software or pressing a scanner button for scanning to
begin.
Scanned image is fuzzy
Check for any obstructions in the scanner paper path and make sure the paper width
guides are positioned appropriately. Try another scan.
Scanner is scanning items very slowly
●
●
If you are scanning to edit text, the optical character recognition (OCR) software
program causes the scanner to scan more slowly, which is normal. Wait for the item
to scan.
The resolution might be set too high. Modify the setting in the scanning software.
Scanned images are not straight
Verify that the document feeder guides are centered on the scanner and set to an
appropriate width for the original being scanned. Make sure the paper guides touch the
edges of the original.
Vertical white stripes appear on the printed page
The destination printer might be out of toner or ink. Scan a different original to the same
printer to see if the issue lies with the printer.

User Guide
If the pages look skewed as they feed into the scanner paper path, check the
resulting scanned images in the software to ensure that they are not skewed.
The pages might not be placed correctly. Straighten the pages and adjust the paper
guides to center the stack.
The paper guides must be touching the sides of the paper stack to work properly.
Ensure that the paper stack is straight and the guides are against the paper stack.

The document feeder or output tray might contain more than the maximum number
of pages. Load fewer pages in the document feeder, and remove pages from the
output tray.
Check to see that the scanner hatch is fully closed.
Clean the scanner paper path to help reduce misfeeds. If this does not help, install
the feed-roller assembly replacement kit. The feed-roller assembly replacement kit
contains a feed-roller mechanism and a separation pad. For more information, see
Replace the feed-roller assembly.
Paper does not feed from the scanner
The scanner hatch might not be securely latched. Open the scanner hatch and then close
it by pressing firmly.
A problem with the scanner hardware might exist. Follow this procedure to test the
scanner:

Ensure that the power supply is securely connected between the scanner and a live
electrical outlet or surge protector. Check that the green LED on the power supply
connector is on to verify that the power supply is functional.
If the power supply is connected to a surge protector, ensure that the surge protector
is plugged into an outlet and turned on.
Disconnect the power supply from the scanner and turn off the computer. After 60
seconds, reconnect the power supply to the scanner and then turn on the computer,
in that order.
Try to rescan.
If the paper still does not feed properly, see the Product Support section of the
printed Setup and Support Guide that came with the scanner.
The bottom of the scanned image is cut off
The scanner can scan an original that is up to 355.6 mm (14.0 inches) long. If an item is
longer, the end of the document will not be included in the scanned image.
The scanned images have streaks or scratches
After each step, try another scan to see if the streaks or scratches are still apparent. If
so, then try the next step.
●

Check that the originals are clean and unwrinkled.
Use a cleaning cloth in the scanner paper path. For more information, see Use the
HP paper-path cleaning cloth.
Clean the scanner glass. For more information, see Clean the scanner glass.
Clean the feed-roller assembly manually. For more information, see Clean the feedroller assembly.
