Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a Photosmart 7280. I'm trying to scan a photo from my printer/scanner to my computer. I hit the "Scan Menu", scroll down to "Scan to Computer", and his "OK". At that point, I get a message that says "No Scan Options". I've scanned this way in the past and it's worked. I must be missing something. Please advise.

The scan drivers may have gotten disassociated thats why it may be happening.

**********************************
if the allinone is wirelessly connected you can run the setup cd and try adding a device again. if it dosent worn you have to do network troublshooting ... hit me for that again and ill let u know.
********************************

if its usb connection just follow the steps below;

This is a issue with communication between the devices and can be due to several reasons like incomplete installation(scanning drivers not installed. usb cable being too long. some ho **** on the pc already). follow the steps below and see if it works. if not you will have to mess with the registeries and thats the next level.

disconnect the usb from the printer>
insert the printer cd in the drive>
cancel the autorun that pops up>
Explore the cd from my computer>
locate the folder called ccc>
it will contain files called uninstalll1, uninstalll2,uninstalll3,uninstalll4>
run them all in the same order as above>
this will completely wipe off the hp device from the pc (it will take time each level taking more time then the one bofore it)
once done restart the pc>
reinsert the printer software cd and follow the onscreen instructions to reinstall the printer software again.


if this dosent work and u need steps for registery cleanup (usb entries) let me know

I hope it works
cheers

You have to download and install the full feature package
for your windows system to make the scanner work on your pc.

When you have downloaded and installed the software
click on Hp solution center and select scanner options.

Down load it here:

Remember to select the system you are running 32 or 64 bit.

Hope this was helpfull.

I can not scan on hp 2610 all in one?


lift the lid on your scanner lay the photo face down then select scan document/photo it will ask what format you want to scan it then it will ask where you want to save it browse select the file/folder where you want to save it (my pictures) most common
or
the drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow?question mark this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options plus you can troubleshoot

1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on the printer.
2 Double click the "HP Photo Imaging Director" icon on your desktop ( placed there when your
printer was installed on your computer ). A menu screen will appear showing the scanning
options of the printer.
3 Place your document or photo on the printer's glass top and close the lid.
4 From the menu screen, click on " Scan Picture " or " Scan Document "
When "Scan Document" is selected, a secondary screen will appear from which you will have to
make choices. After making your decisions, click "Scan" from the listed screen.
When "Scan Picture" is selected, one scanning pass will be performed, another pass will be
made after you view the result of the first pass.
Scanned pictures will go to the HP Photo Gallery and your "My Picture" folder.
Scanned documents will go to your "My Documents" folder.
Good Luck with your scanning operations!!

Scan photos to computer


You need a scanner to scan the photos. I have a canon scanner and it works pretty well. That printer does not scan photos. it just prints them.

Printer all in one and I want to scan a picture to my computer, when I hit the scan button get the blinking lite but nothing else. what am i doing wrong new computer


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.

If possible, find the software disk that came with the printer, and reinstall. One of the options should be to scan from the scanner to the computer. Just make sure that option is selected on re-install, and that the necessary communication cables for that option are installed.

Scanner issues


Well you should make sure you have the Dell All in One printer installed from the CDs. If you can acess the Dell All in One Center from the start menu, then its installed.
If they are installed then you should place anything in the scanning area, hit the menu button on your printer and scroll up to scan then hit start. 90% sure that it will work if not then you'll have to hit it again maybe.
If you can see the image from the dell all in one center, on the right it says "Scan to: (or something similar)" with a drop down menu, hit the down arrow on the menu and then hit file, hit scan now and then you'll be prompted to pick the file location where you want to save it.
Hope this helps.
