Overall it is one of D-Links failed products. I would not recommend for anyone to buy as their sole internet device. Very good but expensive. Easy installation and good instructions. Software installed the network adapter to my router with minimal effort on my part.
ronmarley1 10:34am on Sunday, July 4th, 2010 
Excellent transfer rates For some reason it will drop the signal and the only way to get it working again is to remove and reinstall it.
Jeff Carroll 12:36am on Friday, June 4th, 2010 
Every year I pick up an external drive solution and switch backups to it. The product is constantly a pain to deal with. When it works it works pretty good but it constanly keeps losing its connection to the network.

For tips and information on scanning and optional accessories: Visit the HP ScanJet website at www.scanjet.hp.com. For customer support on the Web, visit www.hp.com/go/support.
Performing basic troubleshooting
If the scanner or software is not working, perform these steps first.
Check that the power cable is securely connected between the scanner and a live electrical outlet or surge protector that is turned on. Make sure you have properly and securely connected the scanner to the computer using either the Universal Serial Bus (USB) or the SCSI Input/Output (I/O) interface. See "Checking connections" on page 10. If the scanner is making a loud grinding noise, make sure the scanner is unlocked. Move the lock down to the unlocked position. Disconnect the power cable from the scanner and turn off the computer. After 30 seconds, reconnect the power cable and then turn on the computer, in that order. If you receive installation file errors or the scanning software will not run, make sure all programs are closed, and then uninstall and reinstall the scanning software. Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements. See the box in which the scanner shipped. If you do not have enough hard disk space, remove unnecessary files or install the software on a different disk drive. If using a SCSI cable, make sure you installed the scanning software BEFORE you connected the scanner. If not, uninstall the software and disconnect the SCSI cable. Then, reinstall the software before reconnecting the SCSI cable. If you received a message like Destination Directory Is Invalid or Program Folder Is Invalid during installation, type a valid destination folder, find a valid folder by clicking Browse, or restore the defaults. The destination folder name cannot contain the following characters: /, \, :, ?, *,<, >, , or |.

Checking connections

The scanner can be connected to the computer using a USB or a SCSI connection. When you run the scanning installation program, the program checks to see if the computer supports USB. If supported, USB is recommended because its installation is simpler. If the installation program displays a message saying it cannot find USB but you think you have it, see Checking the USB connection below. If you are having trouble with SCSI, see "Checking the SCSI connection" on page 11.
Checking the USB connection
This scanner can be connected to the computer using USB if these requirements can be met:
The computer has a USB connector on the back (see below). The computer is running Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, or Me. In the computer BIOS, USB is enabled. In some older computers, it is disabled. See the documentation that came with the computer. If you change the BIOS, restart the computer and reinstall the software.
If the system still does not detect USB, use the SCSI connection. See "Checking the SCSI connection" on page 11. Note: A USB connection is not supported in Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0. You must have a SCSI connection to use the HP ScanJet with these operating systems.

USB port on the scanner

USB port on the computer
Checking the SCSI connection
You can connect this scanner to a computer using a SCSI card and cable that meet the requirements shown below. These requirements are the same as those on any SCSI flyer that might be included in the scanner box. For all SCSI cards and cables:

q q q q q

The SCSI card must be compliant with the operating system that your computer is running. The SCSI card must be installed with appropriate software drivers. See the documentation for the card. The SCSI card must have a connector visible on the back of the computer that allows you to connect a SCSI cable. The SCSI cable must have a connector on one end that matches the SCSI connector on the computer (see example below). The other end of the SCSI cable must have a connector that matches the highdensity, mini 50-pin connector on the scanner (see example below).

Possible shapes of the SCSI connector on the computer
SCSI connector on the scanner

Connecting the scanner

You must have a SCSI card installed before you install the scanning software. Then, install the scanning software BEFORE physically connecting the scanner to the SCSI card. If you have other SCSI devices to connect to the SCSI card, connect the scanner to the last device in the chain. For more information, see the documentation that came with the SCSI card.
Testing the SCSI installation
Test the SCSI installation to see if it is working.
To test the SCSI installation
5 Turn off the computer and disconnect the power cable from the scanner. After 30 seconds, reconnect the power cable to the scanner. Turn on all other external SCSI devices and then turn on the computer. On the Start menu, point to Settings, and click Control Panel. On the Start menu, point to Settings, and click Control Panel. Double-click Scanners and Cameras. Select your scanner model, such as the HP ScanJet 7400C, from the list and click Properties. Click Test Scanner or Camera. When the test finishes, you receive a message indicating if the test passed or failed. If test failed, see "SCSI troubleshooting" on page 13.
For Windows 98, 2000, and Me:
For Windows NT 4.0: Windows NT 4.0 does not provide an automatic method for testing the SCSI installation. If you experience problems with the SCSI installation, see "SCSI troubleshooting" on page 13.

SCSI troubleshooting

If the scanner test fails, follow these steps.
Repeat basic troubleshooting. See "Performing basic troubleshooting" on page 9. Make sure the SCSI chain is less than 20 feet (6 meters) long, including any cabling to SCSI devices inside the computer. If other SCSI devices are connected to the computer, make sure the scanner is the last physical device in the SCSI chain. Disconnect all other SCSI devices and connect the scanner directly to the computer to see if the problem is with the scanner or with another SCSI device or cable. Make sure that any SCSI devices connected between the computer and the scanner have their termination turned off. Check for an address conflict. See Changing the SCSI address below.

Changing the SCSI address
The address for the HP scanner is preset to 2. If you have other SCSI devices attached to this SCSI card, you may need to change the scanner address to prevent address conflicts. If this is the case, use the following procedure only AFTER installing the scanning software.
To change the SCSI address
1 Find an available address using the documentation that came with the computer. Do not choose the addresses for the SCSI card, typically 7, and the hard disk drives, typically 0 or 1. Press FAX and FILE on the scanner at the same time. SCSI Address: 2 should appear on the front panel display. Use the NUMBER OF COPIES button on the scanner to select a number for the SCSI address. The number changes on the front panel display as you press the button. To exit the SCSI address settings, press any button on the scanner except the NUMBER OF COPIES button.
Uninstalling the software
The Uninstall option of the setup program allows you to remove the scanning software from your computer.

To uninstall software

Note: To uninstall the software from Windows NT 4.0 or 2000, you must log on with administrator privileges.
Click Start, point to Settings, and click Control Panel. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon. Select the HP PrecisionScan Pro software and click Add/Remove. Follow the instructions on screen.

Remove curls or wrinkles. Remove staples, paper clips, paper sticky notes, and any other materials from items.
Before placing an item on the scanner glass, make sure the item is free of wet glue, correction fluid, or other contaminating substances.
If your item does not meet these guidelines or you cannot prepare it as stated, use the scanner glass.

Items for the XPA

The HP ScanJet transparency adapter (XPA) is included with some scanner models or can be ordered. Use the XPA and its templates to scan:
photographic negatives 35 mm slides other transparent media up to 127 to 127 mm (5 by 5 inches) in size. For transparent items larger than these measurements, scan without using the XPA. Just cover the item with a piece of white paper and scan as you normally would.
Because these items are easily damaged, handle them only by their edges.
Getting started To load the item in the scanner
1 Choose an item to scan, such as a page from a magazine.
Completing your first scan
Doing your first scan is easy. This section shows you how to take the same item and scan to print using the two primary scanning methods:
the scanner buttons HP PrecisionScan Pro software
Before scanning, you will load the item in the scanner.
Place the item face down on the scanner glass and close the lid.
See "To complete your first scan using the scanner buttons" on page 10.
On the scanner, press COPY. The scanner scans the item using settings optimized for printing this type of item and then prints the item to the default printer.
To complete your first scan using the scanner buttons

Back to TOC To complete your first scan using the HP PrecisionScan Pro software
Load the item in the scanner. See "To load the item in the scanner" on page 9. With the item loaded, press HP SCANNING SOFTWARE on the scanner. The scanner scans the item to the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, choosing the best settings for this type of item. When the scanned image appears in the preview window of the software, draw a selection border around the image or portion of the image you want. To do so, click on one corner of the area you want, and while holding down the mouse button, drag the cursor to the opposite corner. Release the mouse button to complete the border. 6

Getting started What do I need to know about scanning text?
When you scan an item containing text, you can use the text either as a scanned image, such as a fax or photo archive, or as text you can edit. Do one of the following to have the optical character recognition (OCR) software make the text editable automatically and send the text to a supported word-processing program:
What is the difference between screen and print quality?
A computer screen usually displays images at 72 to 75 pixels per inch (PPI). Print resolution is usually higher. Screens also use fewer colors to display an image. Even if an image looks incorrect on the screen, it might print the way you want.
Use the EDIT TEXT scanner button. Editable text appears in the word-processing program associated with the button. In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, choose Scan To from the Scan menu, choose Text File from the Destination pull-down menu, and click Scan.
What is the difference between zooming and resizing?
Use Zoom In to view an area of the scanned image close up. Use Zoom Out to return to the original view of the image. The zoom commands do not change the final size of your scan; they just give you a different view on a monitor. To reduce or enlarge the size of the final scan, use the Resize command on the Tools menu.
Scanning from scanner buttons
The scanner buttons provide an easy way to scan items directly to destinations or files using settings optimized for the destination you choose. When you use a scanner button except HP SCANNING SOFTWARE, you do not view or change scanned images before they go to the destination or file. To view or change images, use the HP SCANNING SOFTWARE button, which sends the scanned image to the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. See the next chapter, Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro.
You can change the default settings for buttons on the scanner. See "Changing settings for buttons" on page 25.

Scanning from scanner buttons To e-mail a scan from the scanner
Scanning quickly without making changes
Use the scanner buttons to scan quickly to a destination using settings optimized for that destination. A destination is a printer, file, or another program, such as your e-mail, fax, and word-processing programs. If you are scanning slides or transparent items using the XPA, you must scan from the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. See "Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro" on page 29.
Place the original face down on the scanner glass and close the lid.

E-mailing a scan

When you e-mail using the scanner button, the scanner scans the item using default settings optimized for mailing. If you have a supported e-mail program, the scanned image automatically appears as a file attachment in a new e-mail message, which you then address and send.

Note: 2

To load items in the ADF, see page 66.
If your e-mail program is not supported, choose E-mail anyway. The scanner scans the item using the optimal settings, and the computer prompts you to save the item as a file. Open your e-mail program and attach the file to a message as you normally do. 3 4
Select E-MAIL PHOTO or E-MAIL DOCUMENT by pressing the small button beneath the lights until the light next to your choice is lit. If the item contains both text and graphics, select E-MAIL DOCUMENT.

Smart Friends are tips that appear automatically to notify you of potential problems. For example, if you are setting a very high resolution but want to e-mail the scanned image, a Smart Friend would alert you that the file will probably be too large to e-mail. To turn individual messages off, select the Dont remind me again check box in the messages dialog box. To turn all messages off, click Disable All Smart Friends on the Help menu. To turn all messages back on, click Enable All Smart Friends.

Online Help

For more information about the types of assistance the software itself offers, see Finding help for using the software on this page. For more information about keyboard shortcuts, menu items, toolbars, and cursor appearance, see "Using software commands and controls" on page 101. The online Help is an easy-to-use source of information about using the scanner and software, troubleshooting, support, and specifications. To gain access to the Help: on the Help menu, click HP PrecisionScan Pro Help. Or, click the Help button in any dialog box in which it appears.
2 Start the scan in one of these ways:

Performing a new scan

Once you start a new scan, the scanner does a preliminary scan of the item and displays the scanned image in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. Then, you can see the scanned image and edit it, if necessary, before sending it to a destination or saving it as a file.
On the scanner, press HP SCANNING SOFTWARE. In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, click on the toolbar. In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, click New Scan on the Scan menu.
To start (preview) a new scan
1 Place the original face down on the scanner glass and close the lid.
The scanned image appears in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. This scanned image is the preview image. You can make changes, such as selecting only part of the image or adjusting the contrast. When you send the image to another program such as e-mail, place the image on a website, or save it as a file, the scanner performs a final scan of the item that includes any changes you made. Directions for making optional adjustments and completing the scan appear in this section.
Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro To crop or select an area for final scan

Do one of the following:

Cropping or selecting an area for final scan
Once a scanned image appears in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, you must select which area becomes the final scanned image by creating a selection area. When you create a selection area, a dotted selection border appears around the area:
Move the cursor over the area you want and click. When the cursor looks like this: , click on one corner of the area you want and drag the cursor to the opposite corner to draw a rectangular selection area. On the Edit menu, click Select All. The entire scanner bed, including blank areas, is selected.

New values appear in the Scale, Width, and Height fields, but the selection area and the scanned image on screen remain the same. Resizing occurs when you complete the scan. 3 If you want, click. This locks the output dimensions you defined so you can change the selection area without changing the output dimensions. When you change the selection border, the software resizes the border proportionally. The output dimensions remain the same.

Changing resolution

Resolution determines the amount of data in a scanned image. The scanning software chooses the optimal resolution based on the output type. This resolution generally does not need to change. If you do change the resolution, choose one no higher than the capabilities of the monitor or printer and one appropriate for the type of scanned image. For example, to print on a 600 dpi printer, choose 600 for black-and-white bitmap images, but choose only 200 for color or grayscale images. These resolutions produce optimal quality while keeping file sizes small. Selecting higher resolutions for color images increases file size while not increasing quality. If you double the resolution, the file size quadruples. Large file sizes can prevent you from doing certain tasks, such as e-mailing, or can take up too much space on your computer. For help choosing a resolution based on the type of original item and destination, see "Tips for best image quality" on page 59.

Changing contrast

The contrast is controlled by the midtone, highlight, and shadow settings. See "Changing midtones" on page 40, "Changing highlights" on page 41, and "Changing shadow" on page 42.

To change resolution

On the Tools menu, click Change Resolution. Do one of the following:
Select a value from the list. Type a value between 12 and 999,999 in the field and press ENTER.
The resolution changes as soon as you select a value.

To reset resolution

On the Tools menu, click Change Resolution. Then, click.

Rotating an image

Making optional adjustments, advanced
These optional adjustments are ones that most people generally do not use or need, but some advanced users might want them for special effects or other needs. Depending on the output type chosen, some tools are not available.

Inverting the image

Use the Invert command to convert white areas of an image to black and black to white. For color images, a color is converted to its complementary color. Generally, this command is useful for drawings and spot color images.

To invert the image

On the Advanced menu, click Invert Colors. Repeat to reverse the colors again.
Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro To lighten the image overall
On the Advanced menu, click Adjust Exposure. Do one of the following:

Changing midtones

The midtone setting lets you lighten or darken the middle values in an image. The range for the number in the Midtone field is 1.0 to 4.0. Moving toward 1.0 darkens the image. Moving toward 4.0 lightens the image. To adjust midtones for slides, negatives, or other transparent items, use "Adjusting midtones for transparent items" on page 73.
Drag the Midtone slider to the right. Type a higher number in the Midtone field and press ENTER. Click the Up arrow next to the Midtone field.
To darken the image overall
Midtone set at 1.8 (the default) Midtone set at 3.2 On the Advanced menu, click Adjust Exposure. Do one of the following:
Drag the Midtone slider to the left. Type a lower number in the Midtone field and press ENTER. Click the Down arrow next to the Midtone field.
To return to the default settings
On the Advanced menu, click Adjust Exposure. Click Auto to return the midtone, highlight, and shadow to the default settings for this scanned image. Clicking Auto also returns output levels to the defaults. See "Setting pixel output levels" on page 44.
If you are sharing the image with others who will be viewing it on a computer screen, the Midtone value 2.2 is recommended because it is a value appropriate for many different monitors.
Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro To increase detail in lighter areas

Changing highlights

The highlight is the value in the image that is represented on the screen as white. All values lighter than the highlight also appear as white. The image has a default highlight setting. Selecting a higher number makes more of the lighter values distinct, which increases detail in light areas. Selecting a lower number makes fewer of the lighter values distinct, which reduces detail in the light areas. To adjust highlights for slides, negatives, or other transparent items, use "Adjusting highlights for transparent items" on page 73.
Drag the Highlight slider toward the right. Type a higher number in the Highlights field and press ENTER.

To reduce detail in lighter areas
Drag the Highlight slider toward the left. Type a lower number in the Highlights field and press ENTER.

Highlights set at 215

Highlights set at 122
To choose a value as the highlight value
Click (white eyedropper). When the cursor changes to the eydropper, move it over the area you want to be the highlight and click.
Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro To increase detail in darker areas

Changing shadow

The shadow is the value in the image that is represented on the screen as black. All values darker than the shadow also appear as black. The image has a default shadows value. Selecting a higher number makes more of the darker values distinct, which increases detail in dark areas. Selecting a lower number makes fewer of the darker values distinct, which reduces detail in the dark areas. To adjust shadows for slides, negatives, or other transparent items, use "Adjusting shadows for transparent items" on page 74.
Drag the Shadow slider toward the left. Type a lower number in the Shadow field and press ENTER. Click (black eyedropper). When the cursor changes to the eydropper, move it over the area you want to be the shadow and click.
To reduce detail in darker areas
1 Shadow set at 10 Shadow set at On the Advanced menu, click Adjust Exposure. Do one of the following:
Drag the Shadow slider toward the right. Type a higher number in the Shadow field and press ENTER.
To select a value as the shadow value
Click (black eyedropper). When the cursor changes to the eydropper, move it over the area you want to be the shadow and click.
Scanning from HP PrecisionScan Pro To view and change clipped light (highlight) areas
3 On the Advanced menu, click Adjust Exposure.
Checking for clipped areas
The lightest or darkest areas of an image that will print without any detail in them are known as clipped areas. The lightest areas, or highlights, will print as the color of the paper (without ink or toner) and therefore will have no detail. The darkest areas, or shadows, will print saturated in the blackest color of ink or toner, and therefore will also have no detail. You can view and change clipped areas if you want those areas to contain detail when they print.

I thought I made the image smaller or larger before the final scan in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, but it is still the same size as the original.
You might have zoomed in or out, which does not change the size of the image. Change the output size. See "Resizing (output dimensions)" on page 35.
Back to TOC An original photo was fuzzy, and the scanned image looks even worse.
The sharpening level needs to be increased. In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, adjust the sharpening. See "Sharpening an image" on page 38.
I set the image to a higher resolution in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, but the output quality is no better.
Scanned images are grainy, jagged, or fuzzy.
You resized the image in a program other than the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. Resize the image in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software before you send it to the other program. (See "Resizing (output dimensions)" on page 35.) In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, the resolution is set too low. Set the resolution to a higher number, or return to the default setting. See "Changing resolution" on page 36. In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, too much or too little sharpening was applied. Adjust the sharpening. See "Sharpening an image" on page 38.
Setting the resolution to a higher number does not necessarily improve quality. The software sets the resolution automatically based on the type of item you scanned. Keep or return to the default. See "Changing resolution" on page 36 or "Tips for best image quality" on page 59 for guidelines. If you sent the image to another program, the program might not support the resolution you set in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software. Determine the setting the program uses and set the resolution in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software to that resolution.
Images scanned from the HP PrecisionScan Pro software are larger than the original when viewed or printed from another program.
The other program did not accept the image size information. Scan the image at a lower resolution. When you scan at a resolution the program accepts, it will display or print the image at the correct size.
An original photo had marks, flaws, or scratches, and the scanned image looks even worse in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software.
You sharpened the image manually. Return to the default setting. See "Sharpening an image" on page 38. Best Quality Sharpening is selected. Check the setting. See "Setting preferences" on page 60.
The image is too big or too small.
In the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, set the physical width and height of the image in the Resize dialog box. See "Resizing (output dimensions)" on page 35.

Back to TOC Scanned images appear as a box with multi-colored vertical lines or as a dashed box with an arrow surrounding the area.
The template might be placed incorrectly on the scanner bed. Turn the template so the wording Hewlett Packard is at the top, or closest to the hinged portion of the lid.
Resolving issues with slides and negatives
Use the following section to help resolve issues with slides, negatives, and other transparent media scanned using the XPA. All actions must be performed in the HP PrecisionScan Pro software, because you must scan slides, negatives, and other transparent items using this software. See also "Resolving issues with the XPA" on page 90.
I tried to enlarge a scanned image of a slide, but the image remained the same size.
You might have used the Zoom In command, which only changes the view on the screen. Use the Resize command to change the size of the final scanned image. See "Resizing (output dimensions)" on page 35.
The scanned image is black even though the lights on the transparency adapter are on.
The template might be placed incorrectly on the scanner bed. Turn the template so the wording Hewlett Packard is at the top, or closest to the hinged portion of the lid. Check the Adjust Exposure command in the Advanced menu.
There are streaks in the scanned image.
The colors are incorrect, or the image is too light or too dark.
The software might be setting exposure for the entire area instead of one slide or negative. Create a selection area around the slide or negative you want to use to ensure it is exposed correctly. The template is not placed completely on the scanner glass. Make sure the template is completely on the scanner glass.
Check the original slide or negative for damage. The calibration area at the top of the large template might be scratched or blemished. If there are scratches or blemishes, turn the template over and scan again to see if the streak moves to the other side of the scan. If the streaks move, then the template needs to be replaced.
The scans are dark or dim along one side of the image.
One of the two bulbs in the XPA might be broken or not working. With the XPA connected to the scanner, hold the XPA up and look for even illumination on both sides of the XPA. If a bulb is broken, service is required.
The scanned image shows a colored tint, usually pink.
The slide was probably scanned without using the slide template, or the template was placed incorrectly. Use the included slide template to scan slides. Turn the template so the wording Hewlett Packard is at the top, or closest to the hinged portion of the lid.

Fingerprints or smudges on the underside of the glass do not affect the appearance of scanned images because this area of the glass is outside the focal point of the scanner.
Wipe the rollers and separation pad with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. You might dampen the cloth with isopropyl alcohol.

Rollers Separation pad

Cleaning the XPA
Clean the XPA with a dry, soft cloth. If necessary, spray the cloth with window cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
