|Three possible models, 9 possible Product Numbers|
Three possible models - 4300c, 4300cse, 4300csi
If you're not sure which model you have, find the Product Number - P/N - it's probably on a stuck on label, or printed otherwise, on the outside of the scanner that matches one in the list and search with that on the above page.
In any case, search with the Product Number on the above page.
All of the Product numbers I looked at have either.....
Power Cord - an AC power cord for the AC to DC power adapter and a separate Power Module - a power adapter with an integrated cord and plug that supplies 12v DC to the scanner's power port
- or - just a Power Module - a one piece AC to DC power adapter with an integrated cord and plug that supplies 12v DC to the scanner's power port that has an integral AC power cord.
The icon that looks like a camera at the beginning of some of the lines has a picture of the item - click on it.
Click on either of the yellow Important Information buttons on the right for additional pictures and info.
Search using one of the HP part numbers on the web to see if you can find a power cord or an AC to DC power adapter or both.
If you have the AC to DC power adapter but not the AC cord for it, if you're in the US or Canada, it's a generic AC cord used for many things and some local places such as a Radio Shack or The Source may have that in stock.
OR - you could buy a universal AC to 12v DC power adapter that has enough current capacity for the scanner (1.25 amps or more at 12v DC) for your AC wall voltage that has the proper plug on both the AC and DC end.
The center pin in the DC jack is usually + polarity - that may be printed near where the DC plug plugs in on the scanner.

Manual including Installation directions:
If you connect it to a mboard's parallel port
- the parallel port mode in the bios Setup must be set to EPP, ECP, or EPP/ECP mode - usually EPP works fine
- the scanner is probably NOT Plug-n-Play detectable by Windows when it's connected via a parallel cable - see the installation directions.
