Question about HP Photosmart C7180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I cannot scan to the computer, get message no scan options and refer me to dvice doucument to trouble shoot, but there is no info on my problem. This is a wireless printer that shares with a desk top and lap top.
First: the C7180 will only work in ONE mode: wireless or wired. End of story there.
second: I spent almost 4 hours, yesterday, fixing this problem - "would not scan to computer because printer did not recognize computer for scanning yet would print & copy ok". I did solve the problem! Here is what I did: 1) removed all software related to C7180 ( make sure it is all gone ). 2) turned off all firewalls & security measures to ensure a clean, uninterrupted reinstall ( be sure internet connection is off for this to be safe ). 3) reloaded software ( hopefully you have the cd for this ). 4) followed all prompts for reload of software & then rebooted computer & tested copy mode, fax and finally scan. 5) went to HP site & made sure I had all updates & everything was ok with drivers. It was. I now have a clean install & all works as it should. The whole process ( after I figured out that it was a software problem ) took about 1 hour. Don't forget to reset your computer security! Be sure your firewall knows all HP software is good & firewall will let it thru.
This should do it.

The easiest solution is to just have a SanDisk USB drive... it takes 10 seconds to save to the drive, put it on your computer and it's done in another 20 seconds. so simple. it's not logical, but who cares. once it's on your computer, email it out or whatever your use. the end. yeah, HP screwed this up, but usually they are a good product. no problem.
