Hello,

I would suggest that you remove all HP software that came with the printer through Add/Remove programs in Control panel. After that is finished, you can download the latest drivers by following the instructions below.

To download the drivers you can go here. When the page opens you will need to choose your operating system. Then, from the Drivers section I would choose the full feature driver. Once you click that, you will see a Install Now button that will allow you to immediately install the software and/or a Download Only button that will allow you to download the file for later installation.

Either option will have a link below them that says View Directions which can be used to get step by step instructions for installation of the drivers.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Hi all, I have a F380 All in one from HP connected to a HP Pavillion w5540 with Windows XP SP3, and everything is working properly. However, when I hit the "scan button" it opens the utility software...


Do not hit the SCAN button. Instead, use the HP software, and click the "Align" button.
Follow the on-screen instructions (print the page, put the page into the scanner) very carefully.

I want to scan some letters and nothing happens when I hit the scan button.


I am assuming that you can print. If so, we can assume that the driver is installed correctly.

You may have to work with the HP software on your computer (especially the first time).

Try looking under start, programs, HP and look for the scanning software. Start it up and tell it to scan a page. You should be asked a few questions about color and quality, text or no text.

See if that helps.

Every time I rurn my computer & f2180 printer on it prints a scan page. how can I stop this. I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it but still it prints a scan page. can anyone help


is this a test page or is it scanning? When you installed the unit did you follow all the steps because some all in ones won't rest until they have done all the 9 yards.
Check you printer default settings. Got to control panel>printers>properties for the printer you have installed. It may have an option for the printer to print the test page on startup

HP F2180 not scanning


I was having the same trouble. All you do is turn the printer on and make sure there is paper in the tray for it to print onto (obviously), then lift the lid (keeping it open) and place the piece of paper you are scanning onto the glass. The side you want to scan needs to be face down in the bottom left hand corner. Then instead of pressing the scan button (which did nothing for me either) press the black or colour button that is above it, depending on whether you want to scan in colour or just black and white. Worked for me! Hope it works for you too.
