No HP devices detected. HP Solutions Center will close now.

Hi everyone. Anyone have a solution to the "No HP devices detected. HP solutions Center will close now" problem? I'm still using my HP OJ 7410 All in One via Ad-hoc w/less connection.

Been having this prob since like forever and was hoping someone could throw out a few ideas that might help.

Much appreciated.

I have tried and tried to get the HP C7280 all-in-one (disaster) software to install -- so I can use the HP Solution Center (insert hysterical laughter here). The installation hangs at 96%. The printer works. Microsoft scanner/camera wizard will scan. ... But HP Solution Center says No HP device detected (boggle) and closes... I have spent weeks and weeks with HP technical people. I have removed my computer's firewall, virus scanner. I have re-engineered my registry according to HP instructions. I have installed uninstalled installed uninstalled following all the myriad of HP techs' instructions until I am totally committed -- or should be committed -- to this one thing: "I will NEVER buy any other HP product again EVER."

    Same problemon my All-in-one 6180. Got a new computer (dell as was the former) and it hasn't worked since. Not only that but the scanner won't work either with the new computer. As well, HP printers have some compatibility issue with Vista - word closes on its own. Seems they don't have a solution to that either.

    Now depending on the operating system.
    Tell you how to get this issue resolved but would require some extremely hard work.
    First if using the cd right click the cd and single left click on the open button.
    once there you will find a folder called util(keep opening the folders until you find a file called l4_uninstall or uninstall_l4 and double click the file).
    you will now see a black window.
    even though nothing else shows up click on the enter button on the keyboard of your computer and keep on clicking on ok on the uninstall windows.
    once all the windows have closed down.
    restart the computer
    once restarted.
    click on the start button on the bottom left hand corner of your computer screen and click on run or press the windows logo button on the keyboard and while pressing it press the R key along with it.
    in the run dialog box(the new small window) type in cmd and click on ok or hit the enter key.
    in the black window type the following
    sc delete hpslpsvc
    sc delete hpqddsvc
    sc delete hpqcxs08
    after all the above are done do the same above and open the run dialog box.
    now type services.msc and click ok or hit enter.
    and look for any services beginning with the word Hp and double click the option.
    now in the new dialog box click the stop button if stop is highlighted,
    now under startup type in the same window click on the drop down list and select disabled.
    do this for any hp entry seen there.
    after that is done x out of the services window.
    open up my computer(in vista would be called computer)
    now (double click) open the local disk C drive(your drive where windows is installed).
    goto the program files and open it.
    now select the hp folder and select it by single left clicking it and press the shift button and simultaneously press the delete button , a conformation box would show up asking if you want to delete the folder permanently click on yes.
    if while doing the deleting step you get an error go into the hp folder and delete whatever folders you can.

    once that is done click on the back button on the top of the same my computer window and open up the folder called windows( this is while your not inside the hp folder).
    now you can search for the folder called twain_32 or if your fast at typing then select any one folder and type tw.... the twain_32 folder should be single right clicked and renamed to old twain_32. Or you can select the file and press the f2 button on your keyboard for renaming.

    after this is done
    press the windows key and the R button once again to open the run dialog box.
    once this is done type the word regedit and click on ok.
    the new window opens (be very careful and read very carefully what I write now)
    click on the plus sign before hkey_current config.
    now click on the plus sign that says system,then expand current control set
    Expand the control header and expand the print header.
    once done any printers that you are not using please select and press the delete button and click on ok on the dialog box that will popup once you press delete.

    now don't close this window we need to now goto hkey_LOCAL MACHINE
    NOW LOOK FOR THE HEWLETT PACKARD FOLDER (NOT HP) and select it and delete it.

    restart your computer and goto the link or you can copy and paste the link below in the address bar of your browser and hit the enter key

    click on the download now button and look for any information bar towards the tabs of your explorer.
    click on the information bar and click on install.
    if the above doesn't happen don't worry proceed to the next step.

    restart the computer one last time and dowload the software from
    (look for support and drivers,click on download software and for product type in "c7280"
    or watever your product is.

    once the software has been downloaded install the software now if you have the same problem again I would recommend calling 1800-474-6836 and getting help because it just might be a computer issue (your operating system).

    These steps are a 90% resolution....try it

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?

Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on

Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
