Hi Kate,

This error occurs if HP drive services are not functioning properly, so try my solution

Solution

Follow these steps in the order presented to resolve the issue.

Step one: Verify that the Digital Imaging Monitor is ready

The Digital Imaging Monitor must be running in order for the Scan To function to work. The Digital Imaging Monitor icon normally appears in the system tray at the lower-right corner of the computer screen, and the monitor is ready when a check mark appears on the icon after Startup is complete.

If the Digital Imaging Monitor is in the system tray, proceed to Step two.

If the Digital Imaging Monitor does not appear in the system tray, follow these steps.

1.Click Start , and then click Run .
2.In the Open text box, type msconfig .
3.Click OK .
4.In the System Configuration Utility window, click the Startup tab.
5.Search the list for HP Digital Imaging Monitor .
6.If HP Digital Imaging Monitor is not on the list, the driver was not correctly installed or a custom install was used. 7.Proceed to step three to uninstall and reinstall the software.
8.Select the HP Digital Imaging Monitor check box.
9.Click Apply , and then click Close .
10.Click Yes to restart.

8.Select the HP Digital Imaging Monitor check box.
9.Click Apply , and then click Close .
10.Click Yes to restart.

Step two: Populate the destination list

1.The destination list must be populated in order for the Scan To function to work. Follow these steps to populate the destination list.
2.Open the HP Solution Center. Use one of the following methods to open the HP Solution Center.
3.On the Windows desktop, double-click the HP Solution Center icon.
4.On the taskbar, click Start , Programs , or All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center .

6.Click Settings .
7.Click Scan Settings and Preferences .
8.Click Scan to... Setup .
9.Click the Destination List tab.

NOTE: Depending on the computer performance, it can take several minutes for the Front Panel Destination List to populate after the printer or computer is turned on.

10.If the Front Panel Destination List is empty, continue with this procedure.
11.If the Front Panel Destination List contains valid scan destinations, proceed to step three to uninstall and reinstall the software.
12.Click each program to include on the Scan To list.

2.If the software installer does not automatically start, complete the following steps.
3.Click Start , and then click Run .
4.In the Open text box, type X:\setup , where X is the letter of the CD-ROM drive.
5.Click OK .
6.On the installer screen, click Uninstall . If there is no Uninstall option, the software installation is incomplete.
7.Insert the software CD into the CD-ROM drive of the computer. The software installer should automatically start.

10.After successful installation, scan a document.

Step four: Service the product

If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Can not insert destination for scans in the settings area


I am not sure I understand your problem, however I would like to address the method in which one would put scan destinations into the "empty box" for the printer's "scanner setup."

When setting up your scans, you will get to the screen where you have two boxes; on the left, the applications that your computer has available for using with the "scan to" function, and the right hand box, which usually is initially empty.

Highlight the application in the left box that you would like to have as a "scan to" option on the printer's control panel. Click the <Add> button to make this selection also appear in the right hand box. Continue for each "scan to" option that you would like to see on your printer/scanner. Click <Save>.

Now when you use the scan button on your printer's control panel, the "scan to" options you created above should be available on your OfficeJet Pro.

I hope this helps!

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.
