Question about HP LaserJet 3380 All-In-One Printer

3 Answers

HP Director buttons greyed out in Mac OS 10.5.4; scanner can't find IMac

I bought a new IMac in July 2008, with Mac OS 10.5 installed. It's connected to my HP 3380 via USB. The 3380prints and copies fine, but its scanner doesn't find the IMac, so I've lost the scanning function altogether. I was hoping this would be corrected with the new HP diriver included with Mac OS 10.5.4, but it doesn't seem to be.

I've heard there may be third party software that works better than HP's driver on the Mac. Can you help?Thanks - J

Have you tried Image Capture, it should be in your applications folder. Give it a try and report back

Just bought an iMac running Mac OSX v10.6.7. Have a HPLaserJetM1005 Downloaded latest software & drivers from HP Can print ok but does not recognise scanner What do I do to make it scan


Hi, you can download the newest software here at HP:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&tool=&query=M1005&product=1839460&lang=en&

Remember to select for MAC os.

Wait until the installation program tells you to connect the printer.

Once installed choose the hp sollution center and select scan mode.
You can choose to scan a paper or a picture.


Hope this will help you.

Just purchased an iMac computer for my HP DeskJet 880C


You can log on to the hp site and get the current driver/printer software for your printer. Get the mac os version and install via usb. Download and install then restart your imac... then attempt a print...
Should work fine with an iMac.

I have a macbook and i want to scan i can print easy...can never scan oh and i have a HP deskjet f380 printer


How are initiating the scan?
The buttons on the printer are not the most reliable. This is a mac thing not an HP thing as there is similar issues with other makes. However some folks don't have problems with the buttons.
Next is the HP director software. This should work but - if you have updated your Mac OS since installing the printer the scanning connection may have got broken and therefor you should download the latest drivers from HP and reinstall. next look at Image Capture (in the applications folder) I have many clients who find this the most reliable way of getting into the scanner (all makes), I'm surprised how few people know about it considering it's been there now since about 10.1. If you can't make that work - even after downloading from HP and installing, then download VueScan from Hamrick Software (it's a pay for) as it works with just about every scanner under the sun (and often better than the manufacturer's own).
