Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

How do I use the scanner on my printer? I push the scanner button and nothing happens.


You have to configure the scanner utility in the printers software that is installed in your computer in order to use the scan button and send the command from the printer to the computer.

This is completely different then using the scan option by accessing it in your computer and sending the signal to scan from computer to printer.

Lets try using the computer to printer option first as its easier.

Go to "start" on the bottom left side of your computer screen

Slide up to programs and locate your Canon Pixma software and open it.

Choose the "Scan" option and hit "ok". Then just follow the prompts.

If its the first time using the scanner option, the software may ask you to confirm your choices for the default when choosing picture or documents. In general the software already has the default choices that are best for your machine in these areas. So just leave them alone and confirm them to continue on and use your scanner.

If this does not work for you or other issues come up while trying these instructions please clarify them and I will help you until able to scan right now.

My HP deskjet won't scan to my computer, the power button just blinks when I hit 'scan' The make and model is HP Deskjet F4180


The HP Photosmart Software must also be installed and running on the computer before scanning.

Check that the USB cable is firmly plugged in to the printer and computer. Unplug the power cord both from the wall socket, and the printer. Wait 60 seconds. Re-attach the power cord securely. Power on. Try the scan again.

Under normal circumstances, a blinking power button just means that the machine is busy with a task. Be sure to let it finish its current task before initiating another.

Hp1350 wont scan press scan button on/resume light blinks buzzing for a few seconds and nothing else.


Did you try print any document just to make sure that printer is connected properly to the computer. If it is printing than try to scan from computer , i mean there must be a icon in your computer "Hp Director", open that and click on scan document. if that doesnt work, than click on start, got to run and than type "stimon.exe" than hit enter from keyboard. Nothing will happen , just screen will flash for a second, than try to scan. if it doesnt work than you have to unistall and reinstall the software

Can't scan a document


Maybe it wants you to hit a start button in the computer program, to start the computer receiving the scan. Try to get an owners manual, sometimes there's one in the install cd.

Dell 964 scanner


First do your scan on Dell 964 scanner &printer. Scan to clipborad. You hear it scan but nothing happens on your computer. Go to control panel - scanners and cameras - scan profiles - find the document you have scanned, select it and click edit - click preview - in the left corner you will see in blue "How to scan a picture" click that, it will lead you to Windows Photo Gallery - there click on file and import from scanner of camera - it will scan there and your scanned pics will be in your picture folder :) Took me a while to figure it out :)
You can avoid all this and go directly to Windows Photo Gallery :)
