Can you print from it? It sounds like you just need to install the software that came with it, it has all the drivers you need or go to hp website and download the newest drivers. Update your drivers and then it will recognize it.

USB not conected


Follow these instructions to troubleshoot the connection. It may help to download and install the latest hp drivers if this problem recently appeared for no reason...
If this is a new installation, you have to follow the HP procedures to make sure you only hook up the USB cable when prompted by the software, or the installation will fail. See this article for xp, this one for vista installation instructions.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Printer and copier work fine- scanner says USB not connected.


I had this same problem and it is fixable, but not the way you would probably like, though you can still scan with the printer. You just have to open the Paint program and click from scanner or camera, and then choose your printer and click scan preview, and then scan, it works just fine but its a little time consuming.

I am having trouble scanning with my hp printer.


You may try restarting your computer with your printer connected and turned off, or ensure that you choose officejet 5510 series and not 5510 twain in the scanner wizard. If this does not help, try reinstalling the printer from scratch.

Printer keeps saying usb not connected when i try to scan


You must give scan commands from within HP Device Manager.  Try this, it should be fine.

Use the scan commands from the HP device manager, not the printer.
