need help! HP scanner problem

by wafflesdoris / October 10, 2005 2:36 AM PDT

I have a HP scanjet 2200c

i managed to scan one document and when i tried scanning the 2nd document, there was a problem. the scanner would not even start, when i checked on my computer under Control Panel, the scanner icon is not even there. it's as if the scanner is not connected to the computer.

i have made sure that the power is on, and that all physical cables are connected.

how do i solve this problem?

please help, and thanks in advance,

thanks for the reply. called up HP tech support, he said likely to be a physical hardware problem. as the bulb inside scanner does not even light up.

looks like i need to buy a new scanner.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
