Question about HP Officejet Pro L7590 All-in-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

No duplex scanning

I was on the phone and online with HP support in India (of course) for 2 hours 50 minutes. They could not install the L7590. So I installed it on a laptop. Fine. But not. It does NOT duplex scan! I bought it specifically to scan both sides, but it offers no ability in the software or machine settings. Can anyone help? Is this simply a duplex printer and duplex photocopier but NOT a duplex scanner? OMG - what a horrible purchase. I will go back to Canon, I think. Can anyone PLEASE help?

Try going to the hp solution center
Then settings, scan settings, scan preferences (third from top), under the automatic tab, bottom of list is “Scan both sides of the original when using duplex feeder”
I’m using version of the HP Solution Center if that helps.  

I told my brother once to ask HP support about a problem for his laptop, and they proceeded to instruct him how to make the problem worse and royally screw up stuff that was completely unrelated to his problem.

Canon DR-9080C Duplex Rotation issue

Scan in portrait mode only. Of course this takes more time as compared to Landscape mode. The top module 'reads' left to right as we see it and the botom module 'reads' right to left, if you look from top. So if you scan in landscape mode and rotate, the back side is rotated by another 90 degrees and hence you see it upside down. If you are using PDF file and have Adobe Acrobat, you can specifically rotate odd or even pages.

Print to fax HP office jetpro L7590 does not work

Sounds like you need the fax driver for the jetpro L7590 . I went to, Selected "Downloads", "Drivers" and enterd "jetpro L7590" into the search. The next screen was a selection of OSs for Windows and one for Mac OS X and Linux. I hope the Mac one is what you need. If it is, download and install it.

I want to setup the printer when I scan and it is connected to the network that it send it to the e-mail. thank you

Sending directly via smtp is not implemented in the Officejet pro L7590. Only the "bigger" models (7680 etc.) seem to have sending via smtp or storing via ftp or smb implemented in firmware. What I find extremely annoying about this: I'm missing this too, as I was mislead by the product description. This lack of functionality is not obvious from HP's product data sheet, which covers 7590, 7680 and 7780 at once.

With the L7590 your can only use some sort of HP Software on a PC.

But beware!

I wouldn't recommend installing any of HP's full featured software package on any pc that is further to be used in productive work!

HP's driver software and utilitys that comprise hundreds of megabytes to download are hard to install and much harder to clean up, if something went wrong.

On a old but fairly well running Pentium 4 machine the L7590 Software brought the system to a crawl just by running some obscure svchost background task that seems to monitor the MFC device.

Having lost tens of hours to the recovery of PCs that had HP's Windows software installed, I'd recommend setting up a linux server with a current version of hplip.

Please note, that with linux and hplip youd' have to write some scripts of your own, in order to "glue together" scanning via hplip and the sendmail command. I'haven't started this yet.

And with hplip you can not use the "send" button from the L7590 panel. So any action must be started on the pc. But hplip is far easier to install (and remove) and it doesn't seem to hog your cpu as much as that crappy, bloated HP Windows software.

The scanner will not work on the L7590

Found on HP page:

Open the following ports on the firewall utility by following the instructions provided by the manufacturer: UDP ports: 161, 427 and 137
TCP ports: 9220, 9500 and 9290

I allow these ports in my firewall (router firewall) and it works now.

Duplex printing

This model "faked" duplex printing using the printing system and you reinserting the paper to print the second side. Go to and download the "plug and play scan/print driver package" that is appropriate for your operating system.
