I would try unplugging the usb when the pc is off then plugg it back in when the pc is on. This may work if the pc is xp or vista but if not you may need to reinstall the drivers.

How do i scan using my hp deskjet f2180?


After all the software and the printer are installed properly, open my computer and look below the 'scanner and camera' group. The scanner icon will appear on there. You can also select the scanner from the other application like coreldraw, word,etc.

Hp deskjet F2100 series scan fail


Okay, the driver for the scanner (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.

Do the following:

Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32\
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer

What taskkill does is kill the scanner application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the scanner driver, and the problem will be fixed!

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.

The scanner and camera wizard is a portion of Windows XP & Vista.

If you go into the control panel, you'll find it in there. If you double click on it, it should locate your scanner and you should have functionality this way.

If you're pressing the scan button on your printer and getting this information, try opening HP Solution Center and clicking "Scan Picture" in there and see if it is any different.
