HP Photosmart C3180 All in One - Scanner problems

My printer works fine, but I cannot bring it up in Scanners to use the scnning part of the device. I tried reloading the printer, but it didn't work. Any ideas? I have a macbook pro and recently installed the Read Iris program.  I use the HP Photosmart C3180 all in one ink jet printer / scanner and when I scan It gives me an error message that the drivers are not set up and that it can't pick up the TWAIN readings?  I'm having a very hard time also even with just scanning things.
please help

    I have a HP C3180 all-in one photosmart express. The scanner won't install. When I go to install it the computer (with Windows XP) does not recognize the computer or when I plug in the USB does not recognize the new hardware connection. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, rebooted and downloaded most recent drivers. I've also tried other usb ports and a different cable.

    I cannot get my HP Photosmark C3180 all in one to scan. I don't even get an error message! The power button on the printer just flashes and then ... nothing.

Scan function not working


I have had issues with HP scanners myself. The way I deal with this is to use the scanner and camera wizard in XP, it recognizes the device and scans even over the network. Works every time for me.

If you need more help let me know I CAN solve this problem, let me know.

I have a HP 3180 and it prints just fine but will not scan and I have Windows Vista.


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Deteriorating Print Quality


This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
