I can't get my HP potosmart C6180 ALL IN ONE PRINTER TO SCAN/COPY OR FAX WITHOUT GETTING A SCANNER FAILURE MESSAGE SAYING UNABLE TO SCAN,COPY OR SEND A FAX


Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg

I am trying to get my dell v305w printer to scan and it keeps telling me downloading application list and then it says after 2 mins unable to download apps


The printer is trying to connect to your pc to download a list of programs to send the scanned document and/or picture to when you use your scanner.

The printer will only scan to certain software and there are separate choices for handling pictures and text documents.

When it tries to communicate with your pc to find software that it can scan to, its not finding any installed that will work with your printer. Its telling you that it is unable to get the list of applications after attempting to connect with your pc.

So, what does that mean?

It means that either "bi directional support" is not enabled in your printing preference so your printer is limited to sending info one way oly (to the computer). If this is the case you can go to your control panel and then choose printers and check the preferences listed there.

OR

You don't have applications installed in your pc that your printer can send scanned documents to.

If this is the case then you need to install software that your printer will work with and then set the options on your printer to pick the default you want to use with both pictures and text documents.

Printers usually accept microsoft word, word pad, microsoft works and any other word processing software to scan text documents to.

Printers usually accept just about any picture editing software installed on your pc to send scanned pictures to.

You can avoid all of the above by checking to make sure that your printers software is 100% installed including the scanning features. Go to the Dell website and update the drivers on your printer to make sure you have the full version that is most current.

The printer will always use its own program to scan both documents and text to regardless of the other software applications you might have installed on your pc.

How do I scan to PDF's on my Canon MP530 printer? Is there a free driver I can download? I used to have one but my computer got a virus and when I had it fixed they wiped it out (I think).


Most computers these days have to have the CD installation disk to provide the drivers and the program to receive the scans. When you scan, it brings up the program to receive the scan. You will have most likely have to reinstall the CD on your computer in order to scan. You might check with Best Buy (their service section) to see if they have the installation CD you need. I used to work as a tech for them, and they often save extra CDs, or have copies just for situations like this.
I did find what looks to be a free driver download site. There is a chance that this will work, so it's worth a try. Here is the site:

Best of luck, and holpe this helps!

I am unable to scan from my printer to my laptop. It is not coming up in the scan options.


A Twain driver needs to be installed, this is usually located with installation disc, or downloaded separately.

HP F380 not scanning


This has happened to me on several occasions with a couple of different HP all-in-one scanner/printer's. The HP driver/program itself may be in a phase where it's attempting to complete a scan, which would prevent you from scanning anything else. You can confirm whether or not this is the problem by restarting your computer and attempting another scan. You'll get an error message saying the scanner is currently in use. You may want to try to completely remove the installation files for the scanner, and reinstall either from the disk or let windows install it for you via "plug and play". Then update the drivers from hp's website. See if that resolves your problem.
