I have an HP scanjet 7450c scanner with ADF, it worked fine until the warranty ran out, now everything scans to a black screen.  I have done all of the diagnostics suggested by HP support, and then they told me it is "likely" a hardware problem, and suggested I "upgrade" to a newer machine. Well the comparable machine is about $600.00 or more, and I think I should be able to fix this one for less than that. Oh yeah,  actually, I replace hardware all the time in my computer, why can't I just replace something in my scanner.  Can any one tell me the proper way to diagnose scanner hardware to figure out what I need to replace.

Thanks,

Dan

Thanks for the reply -  but that has already been addressed, I locked/unlocked/locked it again and again, and it does not make difference.

Okay, I suppose now I need to apologize - I just tried the above again and it works just fine...... sorry SheharyaarSaahil, but I really did try this same thing a few days ago at HP's suggestion.  You win the cupie doll.  Thanks for the help.
