HP Officejet J5750 can't scan,fax from PC and no HP devices detected error


This issue is common with every HP scanning software used with Windows OS which have a firewall running.

If you would try the following:

- check the task bar if HP digital imaging monitor is up and running
- if not, go to C:\program files\hp\digital imaging\bin and double click the file HPQTRA08.EXE
- now the monitor should run
- if not, pls reinstall the software (*)
- if yes, pls try to open HP solution center

- if solution center starts, pls try to scan or to fax
- if successful, no other steps are required

- if faxing is not successful, check in the printer folder, if you find a HP <device name> series fax entry
- if you cannot find it, unplug the printer and delete the entries in both the printer folder and scanner folder
- also run the software CD and start the uninstall_l1.bat and uninstall_l2.bat in the util\CCC on the CD (if 64 bit OS, the run the 64 bit versions)
- restart the PC with the loaded CD
- replug the printer and let it be reinstalled

(*) For a clean reinstall it is recommended to contact HP support. They know the best way to leave a clean system on the PC.

Hope it helps.

    2. Click Printers or Printers and Faxes .
    3. Make sure there is an icon for the printer you are trying to use.
      • If there is no icon and you are connecting via a USB cable, disconnect the cable, and restart the computer. Reinsert the HP software CD and choose Add a device . Connect the unit when prompted by the installer.
      • If there is no icon and it is a wireless connection, run the wireless setup wizard as outlined in the product setup guide, then reinsert the CD and choose Add a device .
      • If there is no icon and it is an Ethernet connection, reinsert the CD and choose Add a device .

    Solution three: Check that the Digital Imaging Monitor is running


      NOTE: If you chose a custom install and did not select HP Digital Imaging Device Functions, the Digital Imaging Monitor will not be installed. Proceed to Solution five.

    1. Press the CTRL , ALT , and Delete keys at the same time to open the Task Manager.
    2. Look to see if HPQTRA08 and HPQSTE08 are running.
    3. If they are not running, restart the computer and then try again.

    Solution four: Check that the HPZPML driver is running

    1. In Windows XP and 2000, click Start , Control Panel , Administrative Services , and then click the Services Icon . Scroll through the list looking for HPZPML to make sure it is set to automatic and that it is running.
    2. In Windows 98/ME, open the Task Manager by pressing CTRL , ALT , and then Delete . The file HPZIPM should be listed.
    3. If the HPZML or HPZIM file are not available, restart the computer. If they still do not show up, proceed to Solution five.

    Solution five: Uninstall and reinstall the software

    1. Insert the software CD into the CD-ROM drive of the computer. The software installer should automatically start.
    2. If the software installer does not automatically start, complete the following steps:
      1. Click Start and then Run .
      2. On the Open line, type D:\SETUP , where D is the letter of the CD-ROM drive.
      3. Click OK .
    3. Click Uninstall on the installer screen. If Uninstall is not an option, the software installation was incomplete. Click Install .
    4. Follow the onscreen instructions until the printer software is completely installed.

Causegtabtop.gif There are several reasons this can happen. The device was not connected during the installation of the software, there is no printer icon in the printer folder, the Digital Imaging Monitor is not running, or the HP service PML driver is not running.
