I had the same problem with vista home premium. vista does not support one touch scanning (pressing the scan button on the printer). to use scanner with vista home os use the paint application and start scanning with the file section. step by step:
start (windows) icon lower left tool bar
programs
accessories
paint
file
from scanner or camera
the hp should start working - note: i sent a short cut to the desk top for the paint program for future use

use the CD that came with the printer.it has the full feature software that will enable the printing and scanning capability of the printer.

How do i scan a document from my c3180?


Here are the steps to scan documents to your computer

1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer.
2. Locate the " HP Photo and Imaging Director " icon on your computer and double click it.
This icon was placed there when you installed your printer.
3. After double clicking on the icon, a menu screen will appear showing the scanning options
available on your C3180 printer.
4. Place your document or picture on the printer's glass top and close the lid.
5. Click on the appropriate selection from the menu screen ( Scan Document or Scan Picture )
6. The scanning process will now take place. The scanner will make two passes. The first pass
will allow you to judge the accuracy of the scan and to make changes, if necessary, from your.
monitor. The second pass is the acceptance of the document/picture to the computer.
7. Scanned documents can be viewed in the " My Documents " folder, scanned pictures can be
viewed in the HP Photo Gallery and the My Pictures folder.

I hope this was of help to you.

Hi I can scan documents when I click on control panel/scanner...all documents scan to picasso. When I press the scan button on printer I want to be able to have documents scanned to word. Please advise


You need to get the HP Scangear manager. or use Scan to word or scantoPDF software download from 'net, if you have installed it correctly, you go to Word go to INSERT, go to INSERT Picture, Image, and select scanner and scan. OR scan to clipboard and paste into Word.
First make sure you have installed ALL the HP software.
Get Vuescan, it's a great standalone program, that doesn't require a driver, and just works. There are other scanning softwares too Google for them

Nothing in or jamming document feeder tray.
Change the setup to scan to a file, rather than email.
Try a different USB port.

Hp printer scanning prblm


Are you able to make copies only (just press copy color or copy balck and check)
And are you able to scan pictures.
If yes then make sure you are scanning from HP Director as Scan documents and follow the on screen direction.
If you do not get the option to scan documents then in HP Director go to> Settings> Scan Documents settings> You will see a option saying promt for these setting at the time of Scan> Put a check mark on that and click on Apply and ok and then try scanning document.
If this does not work the go to Start> Control panel (or Start> Settings> Control panel> Then printer and other hardware or Scanners and cameras> then Right click on the Printer icon> and scan from the options there.

Good Luck

Scanned documents are very light


I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying
