Scanjet 7800 - Driver error (#281,-4523)

Hello all,


Running Windows Vista.  Have had no problems with scanner until about 2 weeks ago when it just refused to scan and kept showing me "scanner driver error (#281,-4523)".  HP support says it is out of warranty and they won't even sell me a service call.  Have tried to reinstall driver and software, but nothing seems to work.  Input much appreciated.

I just started having the exact same issue. Were you able to get your scanner to work again? I scann 30-50 docs on this daily....


Thanks in advance for your help!

Had scanner for a few years with aboslutely no problems.  Then one day it just started giving me the error message.  When I click on scan the only thing I get is the Scanner driver error (#281, -4523).  I've redownloaded the available driver from the HP site and still it does not work
