I am having problems making my scanner work - I can't scan a document from the printer/scanner/fax/copier to my laptop


How is the all-in-one connected to your computer? What OS are you using? Did you install the full software, basic drivers or the OS drivers? Are you starting your scan from the computer or the buttons on the all-in-one? Is this a newly installed printer or one that has been used several times with this computer?

The Photosmart C7180 can be used with a USB connection, wired ethernet network, wireless network, bluetooth or PictBridge. For a Mac OS, only the USB connection will work.

If you need the drivers, see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=1153754& and select your OS.

If you connected the all-in-one to the computer via a USB connection before installing the software, you may have an OS driver that does not include the scanner driver. Disconnect the USB cable then uninstall the driver. Then install the HP driver. If you do not install the full software, you will not be able to use the buttons on the scanner to launch a scan. You'll have to start the scan from the computer.

If you have the full software, the HP Solution Center is installed. This includes a monitoring program that should run when you start your computer. This listens for the press of a button on the scanner and launches the appropriate part of the HP software. However, you need to set the button destinations in this software first. I recommend manually scanning at least once to set the appropriate resolution and destination folder for your scans. Then in the Solution Center, click Settings, Scan Settings, Button Settings and then Front Panel Scan Buttons. Set these based on your default settings.

If this all-in-one has been working previously, check your connection. Scanning requires bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail even when the printer works. Try a new USB cable and a different port, if you are using that connection. If you are on a network connection, check that the firewall isn't blocking communication. (Temporarily disable the firewall to check.) In Windows, check the Devices and Printers (Win7's name) control panel and check if the scanner is a listed device. Right click on it and check the properties and status. (All-in-ones are often listed twice - as a printer and as a scanner.) HP offers a diagnostic program, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/doclink?lc=en&cc=us&product=1153754&tmp_docname=c02114802 , to check for issues with the scanner.

Try manually scanning with another program than the HP software. Windows includes some options that will acquire scans. XP, Vista and Win7 all include Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Windows7 (and some versions of Vista) include Windows Fax and Scan (click New Scan). If you have the Microsoft Live software, you also have Windows Photo Gallery (works like Paint).

If you are connect the all-in-one to a USB print server, the scanner probably won't work. Try a different type of connection.

If you are using the all-in-one on a network, make sure that the network is up and the printer has an IP address. I've seen routers lose their connection for various reasons. (Rebooting both the modem and router sometimes cures the problem.)

Please add more information on your specific scanner problem and I'll try to provide specific suggestions.

I hope this helps.

Print spooler error in windows xp sp2 & sp3


Click on Start -> Run ->Type: services.msc and click OK, this will bring the services window up. Scroll down to print spooler, turn on then double click on the Print Spooler Service and set start up type to Automatic, then click OK. Restart PC. Now, you have to reinstall the software (if you can't find it, please tell me your model so I can search it for you) If this won't work, completely uninstall all the software and again, reinstall it. Click on Start -> Run ->Type: Control Panel in the dialog box and click OK. Click on add remove programs and uninstall the software for the printer.
Then check Under the Printer and Fax to see if it was uninstalled. If not then just delete it. Printer and Fax is located in Control Panel. Once it's completely uninstalled you have to reinstall the software for the printer.

I hit scan on my machine and there is nothinbg responding on the computer screen. I am able to copy, print and fax. Help.


Your scanner is not properly installed. It is a separate part of the program. If you have (start - programs) the scanner as a program, bundled with your other printer proograms on screen, double (left) click on the scanner program, it should lead you to the install wizard. simply install the program. If not, try reinstalling your printer.software (use control panel - add/remove - uninstall all printer programs FIRST). Look at your software and make sure that the scanner software IS included.

In your printer and fax folder you probably have more than one printer installed and your default printer is not the one you just installed, Select the printer you just installed and set it as your default and try again

My machine displays on the LCD: "machine error 68"


First, I would recommend NOT trying to manually install this printer by using the add printer wizard in windows and selecting the the port and drivers to use. I would use the install cd to set this all up, it makes setting up this printer MUCH easier. If you are unable to use the install cd then get the IP address for the printer from your router admin page then with the printer "installed" go into the printer properties, go into the port, add a port, and instead of using a printer name just type the IP address for the printer in. Also for any networked printer make sure you don't have a firewall blocking it (this would include making sure that if the printer requires a port opened in the router that all requests for that port are routed to the IP address of the printer).
