I had purchased a new computer that ran on Windows Vista. I was able to go onto the HP support and found out that the scan button would not work because the printer was purchased before Windows Vista operating system came out even though the printer and copier part worked fine. HP support offered two solutions and the one that worked for me was to:
Click Windows Icon
Choose Programs
Accessories
Paint
File
From Scanner or Camera
Scan

How do I get my printer to scan? the power button just flashes when I push the scan button.


Use the HP computer side comtrol program. If you do not have it, you can get it at HP.com, look in support and downloads for your model.

How do I use my scanning feature? I need step by step instructions to get a scanning job down. Where do I find the instructions?


Are you using the full-featured software or the generic driver in the OS? The generic drivers often only run the printer. The full software must be installed before the USB cable is connected to the all-in-one. If you have the generic driver, uninstall it first.

HP has many help files on scanning (depending on your OS and set-up)
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=23133&tmp_task=useCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1153481

Basically, put the document face down on the glass (or face up in a document feeder) If the full-featured software is installed, start the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP (folder) > HP Solution Center (slightly different for Macs) or double-click on the icon for the program on the desktop.). Click on the Scan Photo or Scan Document icon in the software and set the resolution and other settings when the pop-up comes up. Set up the destination (Scan to, File Type, etc) Then click Scan. If you get a preview scan, you can make adjustments and then Scan.

If you have the Scan to destinations set up for the buttons, you can use the buttons on the scanner if the monitor program is running (Scan Photo and Scan Document) See the programs help to set up these shortcuts.

If you have XP, Vista or Win7, you can also scan into Paint (File, Import from Camera or Scanner in Win7). Vista has another program that will aquire scans. Win7 has Windows Fax and Scan (click on the New Scan button).

Scanning needs two-way communication so print servers and USB hubs can interfere. A new USB cable or connecting to a different USB port (direct connection) are quick things to try if you can't get a scan to complete.

I hope this helps.

How can i scan i picture with my Hp photosmart


You need to go into the software settings and allocate where the files are saved to. All scanning software has this option.

My hp c3150 prints a test page every time i turn it on


Do this. The next time it prints a test page, keep the same test page under the scanner and push the scan button on the c3150. This would complete the test cycle and it would not print test pages from the next time.

Scanning photos using HP Photosmart C4200 series scanner but unable to ascertain how to save them to computer.


I had the same problem, I could scan something but I couldn't send it wirelessly to the computer to save.

Try this, go to START , CONTROL PANEL, SCANNERS AND CAMERAS and see if the HP photosmart is listed.
If it isn't, get out your HP disk that came with it and install it. After it is installed, you can scan and save from there without using the buttons on the HP.
