My scanner is not working. Can't open HP director on my laptop. I tried to reinstall CD that came with it, but " more recent version installed" Printer and copier work fine.


Here are some diagnostics.
1. Go to control Panel and then to scanners & camera.
2. look for your scanner there.
3. if you find your scanner there try to scan from the wizard and you will be able to scan you docs.

To Reinstall the Hp Director....
1. first uninstall the HP director software using the removal utility located in your cd...

The uninstaller on the Internet is newer and works better than the one on the CD-ROM. Use this method only if the Internet version is not available. Follow the steps below to use the CD-ROM version only if you cannot get the regular uninstall to work correctly and cannot access the Internet:
  1. Leave the USB cable disconnected from the all-in-one.
  2. Insert the all-in-one CD-ROM into the computer. Cancel or close any installation windows that appear.
  3. Right-click the Start button, and then click Explore . This will open Windows Explorer.
  4. In the pane on the left, locate the CD-ROM drive letter that contains the all-in-one CD-ROM.
  5. There are two different versions of the software for some of these models. Use the file path that pertains to your version of the all-in-one software.
    • Early versions of the HP Officejet 6100 and PSC 2100 and 2200 series: Double-click the file hposcr01.exe , located in the Drivers\Uninst\language (ENU for English, ESN for Spanish, FRA for French, or PTB for Portuguese) folder of the CD-ROM.
    • The newer software version: Double-click the file Cleanall.bat , which is located in the Util\CCC\Cleanup folder of the CD-ROM.
    ONCE THE SOFTWARE IS COMPLETELY REMOVED.RESTART THE PC AND TRY TO INSTALL THE HP DIRECTOR SOFTWARE FROM THE CD.
Let me know for any further help....

HP DIRECTOR NOT WORKING


the director will appear to not be working if the scanner is not installed and recognized by Windows. A scanner icon will appear on the desktop if it is recognized by Windows.
One likely reason it isn't being recognized is the power supply isn't putting out enough current, 1.25A, to force the correct signal level through the USB port. If the power supply is old, not plugged directly into the wall, or a substitute with the wrong current rating, the scanner will not send enough power through the USB port.

HP Director is missing


Follow the link I am providing, select your operating system, and the software should be listed under the "Driver" section. If this doesn't fix your problem, do you have Internet Explorer 7 installed?

Can't find tool box to check ink level - HP 6310 using Vista 2007


doesnt matter most printers have a feature of their own to check ink levels.
press the setup button on the printer and scroll down(with the arrow buttons) till you get tools press ok and now scroll through until you get ink level and select it by pressing the ok button,walla you should have your ink levels in front of you.

Now about the hp solution centre/hp director icon on your desktop (if you have installed the software).
Click on settings and click on printer toolbox and now check your estimated ink levels it will show the ink levels of the printer cartridges.

HP Director won't open. I am on XP and IE7


HP Director has a flaw and is not compatible with IE7
I have a psc 1100 and I had to update my software from HP

CHECK THIS OUT

Go to HP, this link, type in your printer model #.

It still may fail to show...if it does not show HP recommends this
work around.
Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.
