Will Not Scan

Really need some simple help as I'm not technically minded, and this is starting to annoy me! Running the printer on OSX and it will print and copy but has stopped the scanning capability altogether! The button on the printer itself just doesn't do anything! I have seen other people with this problem and couldn't understand the instructions on how to fix it but they seem to work :: 1st - CNR the following two programs: hplip and kooka 2nd - Once CNR is completed with it's tasks. Go to the Printer icon on the desktop and add your printer as a 'Local' printer. Be sure to use the PSC listed under 'Other', not the one under 'USB' (which will print, but not scan) in the scan for local printers. Be sure to print the test page to make sure it prints. 3rd - Once you know it prints, now we have to get the scanner part to work. Go to: /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file, and edit it. At the bottom of the file you'll see : hpoj on the next line add: hpaio save the file, then close. Can some one either tell me a simpler method or explain what this means exactly? Thanks for any help!

Since Mac Lion OS has just been released, your scan issue might need further troubleshooting. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

Lost the scan ability from my printer.

I have this problem most times that I upgrade OSX. I remove the printer in system preferences, download the latest drivers from HP and then re-install. It's working better than ever now with Snow Leopard.

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf

Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

I can't scan anything on this machine

As long as you have downloaded the software that came with printer and installed the printer with an usb cable, it should be really easy such as just hitting the scan button and it will pull up the pic after scanning.

When Trying To Scan, ScanGear Message Comes Up Saying Cannot Comminate With Printer.

Make sure the "Still Image Service" is running on your system. Right-click "My Computer", select "Manage", then open "Services" applet. Scroll down to the "Still Image Service", right-click it and set its properties to "Automatic", then right-click it and "Start" it.

Can't print from iMac to Photosmart 7350 printer

So all it really needed was a new cable? Glad you got this one worked out on your own, since none of us had gotten to it yet.
