Can you reboot and log in with the device detatched, run:

lsusb

Then attatch and power the device and then run:

lsusb; dmesg | tail

Copy ALL the output and paste it here

Thanks

@ahambridge, HPLIP does NOT support single-function scanners.

For documentation on supported/unsupported scanners and troubleshooting them in Ubuntu, see:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Scanners

There are now drivers for the HP ScanJet 2400. All you have to do is to install some packages via apt-get or Synaptic, and you will be able to use the XSane software to scan images. Refer to:
https://launchpad.net/~lion-simba/+archive/hp2400

First, add this software source to your repositories.
ppa:lion-simba/hp2400

For 32-bit users, install this package:
libsane-hp2400

For 64-bit users, install these packages:
libsane-hp2400x64
scanimage-ia32
xsane-ia32

Go into System > Administration > Users and groups
Look for the "saned" group and make sure your user account is included in that group.

Reboot your computer.

Make sure you have installed XSane Image Scanner. Launch XSane and you should be able to scan images now.

Note that you can only scan colour images. Greyscale scanning will not work.

Hope this helps!
