Question about HP Officejet Pro L7580 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently migrated from XP to VISTA and now my L7580 has no SCANNER and no CARD READER slots available. Under XP (driver version 7) everything worked. With VISTA (driver version 8) I can only print. I configured the L7580 as a network printer. I installed the latest basic driver from the HP website.
If I try to scan from my computer no scanner shows up. When I select the SCAN button on the printer, I get the following messages:
No scan options.
What is wrong with the driver?
You may want to try the full install before spending more time troubleshooting. It's a 300mb download (!), but it might be worth a try.
You don't say what software you're trying to use to scan, either; you may wish to try another one. If you want to experiment, you can download a free photo editing package that won't take over all your preferences for files -- check out portableapps.com and look for GIMP.
I've got an older HP printer, a PSC 1610, and it took me something like *seven* times installing it on Vista before it worked right. It turns out there's the regular uninstall, and then there's a super uninstall, and then there's a super duper uninstall, etc -- something like seven different uninstallation procedures, which is just insane.
HP's drivers and cruddy software convinced me to never by another one. It's a shame -- the company made some laser printers 15 years ago that are still working perfectly.
