Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

4 Answers

I purchased a 5590 digital scanner a few months ago. I haven't experienced the expected usage, but have now had occasion to need to scan double-sided , letter-size documents. This occasioned the need to adjust the scanner settings and I have discovered I do not appear to have the HP Director software loaded. Either it didn't load off the disk , or I have accidentally deleted it. Can I simply reload the software over what I already have (everthing else seems to work fine!)or should I forst remove all of the existing scanner software?

    You really haven't answered my question yet. I have the software disk that came with the scanner when I purchased it. All of its content was loaded (I thought), but the HP Director referred to in the User Guide does not appear to be on my computer now. To get the HP Director onto my computer , should I simply reload the entire disk, or should I first try to remove the existing software?

    Yes, I think you have instructed me how to respond when I get messages from attempting to reload the software.

If it is a "flatbed" digital scanner here are 2 sites for you to download the software and drivers, remove the existing software first:

When you will directly load the drivers it will pop up on the screen that do you want to keep the existing drivers or load the drivers again.u have to select the ---drivers again option---
if you will select the ----existing driver option---nothing will be changed and it will work as how it is working now.your scanner drivers will not be loaded.

    when you will load the printer  driver again after deleting the old existing driver. there will be a option comming up in between that ---do you want to load the full version or just the short cut version of the driver---and at that time u have to select the full version of the software in that only u will get all the functions of the printer work properly.
    if u select the short cut version it will only load the printer options and nothing will be loaded.

I purchased HP Scanjet 5590 which Sl. No. was CN95DTS1SO. Please instruct me how to clean inner part of the glass.


Hi,

Here is the manual for your scanner, http://www.manualowl.com/m/Hewlett-Packard/5590/Manual/15846turn to page 14 for the Care and Maintenance of the unit. It does not recommend taking the glass off the scanner. I hope this helps in a way though.

HP Solution Center does not recognize the scanner anymore... We are operating on a Windows 7 system... the drivers had to be downloaded from the internet because the cd that came with the printer was for...


I had the same problem and solved it. I was using HP Solution Centre to run my HP Scanjet 5590 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without problems. Then I ran the scanner using Windows Fax and Scan, but didn't like it, so went back to HP Solution Centre - whereupon the scanner was not recognised.
After hours of reinstalling software etc etc, without success, I suddenly noticed four device icons on the left hand side of HP Solution Centre. These were labelled (when hovered over with the mouse) hp scanjet 5590, hp scanjet 5590 #2, hp scanjet 5590 #3, hp scanjet 5590 #4. Only the top icon was active, but when I clicked on any of the four it moved to the top.
Clicking on hp scanjet 5590 #2 gave me a working installation once more - problem solved. No doubt the multiple icons arose from my desperate attempts to try different USB ports.

HP Scanjet 5590 Lamp Error "Bad or fading lamp (error -4430)" Fixable? Can I do it? Best source to purchase?


From HP forums:

The first thing I would do is to make sure your TMA is properly attached. Next, make sure your software is up to date and that any applicable patches have been applied.

Next, what OS are you using? What application are you trying to use to scan with? Can you scan from any other application such as word or another graphics program?
