What should I do with my scanner?

The light won't go on when i go to scan something and i think it may be blown. Is it worth replacing the bulb if i can find one or should i replace the whole scanner? the scanner is an HP Scanjet 2300c.

Thanks in advance!
Update: I had the scanner for 3 - 4 years.

Also when i scan something all there is is black can't see the picture i scanned.
