Cx4600 scanner will not work

My scanner used to work with my desktop PC. I have gone through the troubleshooting several times. I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled, still same problem. It displays "unable to access the scanner because it is not ready or another app is using it. I have tried connecting to different usb ports. I have never used any other App to scan with. I have the cx4600 software installed on my laptop and using the same printer usb cable from the printer it works fine. So I Know it is not my usb cable. Any suggestions.??

Install another scanning software, if you have photoshop or any imaging software, you can use the scanner by going to the menu, then choose File, Import, TWAIN, Acquire and the scanner control will appear.

Or just go to My Computer and double click the scanner icon (in XP) to start the scanning assistant.

Some time reinstalling these drivers and reinstalling them could be lots of headache, up to the point of reinstalling the the entire system. I will advise if you are not to good with computer, get a technician to do it for you. But if your are good enough, uninstall your current driver for the printer and look for any entry of it on the registry and delete it also search the installation folder and delete the folder. Restart your system and install the printer again.

My scanner stopped working. hp solution center says that the device installation is not complete. i have a hp photosmart 3210 all in one. it was working the last time i used the scanner.

You probably need to uninstall and re-install the Latest Drivers for your printer

To uninstall you can do it from the Software disk you recieved with printer.
Insert the Disk in CD ROM and Click uninstall from HP Printer Menu

OR If you dont have the disk, you need to manually uninstall the Software
( Disconnect the USB cord before uninstalling )

Click START - Open Control panel - Add/remove Programs ( XP ) / Or Programs and FEatures ( Vista/Win 7 )
you will find list of HP Programs installed..

Choose one by one and uninstall these programs
1. HP Customer participation program
2. HP Imaging Device and software
3. Software and drivers for Photosmart 3200
4. HP Solution Center or HP Director
5. HP Image Zone ( or Image Zone Express / HP Photosmart Essential )
6. HP Update
7. HP Printer Drivers/Diagnostic Drivers
( after every Uninstall you will be prompted to restart the PC, you will find an option [ Click here to restart later ]. click on it and restart the PC once you completed uninstalling all the above programs )

Once you have uninstalled - click on this link to download the latest drivers by choosing your operating system

Save this File on Desktop an run it

no solution. just figured that I could buy a brand new scanner for $50 bucks. Seems most items purchased today are not fixable, and we continue to live in a throw away society.

I plan to ask my apple people to see if they can help the next time I go to see them.

It sounds like the nozzles may be blocked, if it has been left for 10 months will no ink - It will have dried up. It is probably worth you running a head cleaning procedure which can be done using the Epson software. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks Daniel
