In Reply to: PLEASE HELP! HP 5300C Scanner + 870cxi Printer posted by Ian Smith on December 28, 2000 at 17:30:26:

: A friend of mine has been happily using a PC with a HP 870cxi printer for some time (Celeron, 128mb, Windows 95). It has the latest printer drivers installed with the HP Toolbox in operation. He has recently purchased a HP 5300C scanner which is to be connected via the parallel port on his PC. I have tried to install this for him - with and without the 870cxi plugged in to the back of the scanner. The software driver installation seems to work okay then it asks me to restart the PC which I do (shut down and restart). When I go back into Windows, the PC says it detects the scanner and installs the appropriate stuff into system properties. Then the HP scanner software seems to launch itself and the scanner comes into life, the copier software wants to scan whatever is in the scanner without prompting (i.e. nothing) and fire it to the 870cxi printer even though it is not connected. If I do connect it into the scanner then out comes a colour picture (default for the software I guess). Now, once it does this it wants to do the same again and again, and between this I get a lot of messages from the HP software (scanner) saying "Application Cannot Register", and messages saying the scanner is already in use.

: I have found nothing to say that the 5300c and 870cxi should not work together, so what is happening? The software does not seem to be finishing it's setup after re-boot correctly, and this copier software want to go on and on without asking...

: If I manually close this (via task manager) and start the Precision Scan software manually, it reports it cannot find the scanner...

: Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
