Scanjet 4p fails self-test
Posted on 2000-03-21
I've bought a used HP Scanjet 4p (type C1130 A) last week.
My SCSI Card (Tekram DC-390U) correctly recognizes the scanner, and during the next Win98-boot the 'new Hardware' - Window appeared telling me that a ' HP Scanjet 4p' was found. So far, so good.
But the scanner doesn't work. I've downloaded the v2.8 Software for Win98 (in german) from the HP Website and installed it. When I start the Scanner-Test, an error is displayed (after approx. 2 minutes): 'TEST FAILED: Scanner internal self-test failure.'
When I click on the 'Info'-button, another window appears: 'Scanner-Statuszeichen: 1111111111212345678901234567890PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP'
Is the Scanner broken and has to be repaired ?
