HP J5780 - Using scanner with print server

Is it possible to use the HP J5780 scanner when it is hooked up via a print server? When I go to scan I get "An error occured with the scanning device. Please ensure that the scanning device is connected properly and try again." Is there not somewhere where you can enter the IP to enable this?

Yes. this printer can be use for wirelss connection, so it can be use with wired jetdirect. however, you are going to need the web jetadmin from hp in order to reconfigure the IP address for the jetdirect.
you can download a copy form

Cannot save in pdf format after scanning thru hp g3010 scanner using win7 pro

Hi abdul_haq779,

This problem couldd be resolved by printing the format that you get via your scanner for e.g. jpeg into pdf , by using a free pdf printer tool.

Once you have an image scanned via your scanner , you can just print the image in pdf mode.

I am using a Xerox WorkCentre M15i connected to a server via a USB cable. I am trying to configure the scanner so that each user can perform a scan from the workstations without accessing the server...

There is a device called a Pocket Pro that attaches to the machine and you can then hook it via a RJ45 connection. I believe Troy makes that device. I have used it several times with success. Its basically a print server device.

Can one scan and send from the J5780

It has to be an option you received with your scanner..not all scanners are equal. If you can find the documentation on the manufacturers website it will tell you if you have this feature..good luck...

Scanner won't work

The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP J5780) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Can I scan through a wireless network connection?

hmmm...well..that's an interesting point..according to HP site, this is NOT supposed to be an issue. Seems, though, that perhaps, the print server/hub you are using, is not processing the scan command? I'd check that item first, to see if it will handle those commands..
