    my scanner has worked perfectly for a couple of years but a week ago it appears as if my computer cannot find the scanner , I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled several times but to no avail.

    I removed the power from the printer and removed the usb cable and restarted mycomputer, replaced the usb cable and the power , I could see that the computer had automatically uninstalled the driver and then found and installed the driver on restart but again to no avail .

    I can see in the device manager that my epson stylus is listed but when I go to scaners and camaras from the controll panel it is not shown.

    If I bring up the insall wizard it cannot find the scanner.

Hp scanjet4850 won't install on windows 7


This fix below will work for Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 8.1 guaranteed, the original software was for Windows XP only. HP have the necessary drivers and Vuescan is a third party scanner program, that is every bit as good as the OEM software, in fact I think it is better.
(1) Download and Install HP Scanjet 4850 Driver: setup_basic_4800_14-5.exe from http://www.hp-drivers-download.com/download/hp/setup_basic_4800_14-5.exe.html
(2) Download and Install Vuescan 64 bit: download from http://download.cnet.com/VueScan-64-bit/3000-12511_4-75328364.html

Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.

Try uninstalling the drivers for the scanner and the printer. Restart the computer without either the scanner or printer pluged in. After restart install the drivers and only plug up the USB cable for each device when asked by the software.

Hp5300c scanner-can't use HP software on new PC (XP Pro SP3)


Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not working correctly, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. For Faxes, etc. import in outlook or other email client, etc.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Scanner problem


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the scannner. Scanner's can be tough. Try disconnecting USB cable and reconnecting too. How recently did the scanner work? Try reinstalling the scanner software/driver. Also see if you can trouble shoot by right clicking on scanner icon from control panel, scanner.
repost if none of these work. thanks.

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
