Angry HP PSC 1315 not scanning

I got this multifunction device Hp PSC 1315 from friend, because he says that it suddently stop printing, yet it scan well - for this only thing. Scanning. It is a compact thing: http://content.hwigroup.net/images/p...p_psc_1315.jpg
...with the lift off top for the scanning:

This is the interface:

...yet on mine is in the number of Copies (as shown "1") are shown "E" and the red LED diode on the "Check printer cartridge" is flicking. No real reactions on the buttons anyway. Except more flicking LEDs, lol.

Using the latest v4.2.1 drivers from there:
Software & Driver Downloads HP PSC 1315 All-in-One Printer | HP® Support
In Photoshopu with the "Import / hp psc 1310 series TWAIN..." it shown this window:


HP PSC 1315 scan

...it witch nothing works. That is on Windows 2000 SP4 with the HP "Win2k " drivers v4.2.1 witch obviously did not work on W2k.

Windowns of course claim that all is OKAY:


HP PSC 1315 test passed

...and there was not a problem with the install. Using the WIA interface it tell me, that the scanner is busy, probably by "other application":



On Windows XP SP 1.0a it looks much better:



...yet still refusing to scan anythng. But once I did managed to make it scan. (IIRC I opened the door for the cartridges, close it and use the WIA preview for scan...?) But on reboot/shotdown it stoped scanning again and never do it. Yet I have few scans I did with it as a proof: Galerie

So I'm getting pretty angry with this thing and I tried Win XP SP3 - yet no change. Then I managed to find a czech version of the install CD drivers v4.2.0 - yet this is very slightly older, I tried it on clean Win XP SP1.0a again. And again nothing :( All is OK, yet the printer still complaining about rhe cartridges and refuse to scan, when I already scanned so well!!! :mad:

This is crazy.

Obviously HP PSC 1315 not working with a Active Jet AH-657N and AH-656N cartridges, however it did scan for my friend and it even show that me - but just a show. What can I do to make it scan? I absultely did not want to print with such problematic thing, the whole section can be ripped off. But what to do to make it scan?
Or is there a firmware downgrade possible to even make it back working with the cartridges?!

Anyone have, preferably the smaller web drivers, any older version of the drivers that the v4.2.0 ...? ( Hp PSC 1315 driver v4.2.0 cz.rar | Ulo?.to )
