HP Scanjet 5550C / LexMarkOptra C710

We have a  HP Scanjet5550c & a Lexmark Optra C710 mark with "secret" classification.  We are wondering if there is vol-ital memory in these devices.  We need to get rid of them just wondering if there might retain any classified data.

If this device was used for classified data it should be sent to a chipper/shredder and destroyed.

The HP Scanner does not retain any information. The reset instructions consist of turning it off, unplugging it, and then plugging it back in and starting it.

You could look in the Lexmark documentation and do a hard reset of the Lexmark.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.
