I have an HP Scanjet 3010 connected to my Vista computer which works fine - except for excessive warm-up time.
The scan speed is quite quick - takes only about 15 seconds to scan an A4 image - but it takes ages to warm up.
When I place an original under the lid and press the scan button - it sits there for 3.5 minutes with the occasional buzz and twitch - before it does the preview scan. I then press the "accept" button and it sits there for about a minute before taking the actual 15 second scan.
If I then put another original under the lid immediately, it sits there for only a few seconds before setting off for the preview scan - but still takes about 30 seconds after accepting the preview before taking the final scan. If I wait for more than a minute or so between originals - I am back to the 3 minute warm-up all over again.
Is this normal ?. My previous HP scanner only took about a minute to warm up (but was slower to do the actual scan of the document).
