Question about HP Officejet Pro L7580 All-In-One InkJet Printer

HP OJP L7580 and VISTA no SCANNER available

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:
Select Computer
No scan options.
What is wrong with the driver?

    Itried and it got worst. After I uninstalled the Basic driver, the new install of the FULL driver version got the msg NO NETWORK PRINTER FOUND. There was no wy to recognize the printer again. Even with L3 and L4 uninstall. So I had to RESTORE my OLD environment.



    Maybe my Router is a problem with VISTA SP1. I have the WRT54AG. But internet works great.

    I also have same problem with the latest HP driver version 8.3 (full version 3xxMB). the installation program just can't find my network printer (HP Officejet Pro L7580). The only way I can do is to go back to use the basic previous driver. I really really want someone can help me get out of this problem, thx!

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.

Running Vista Home Basic and tryin to install L7580 but


Most printers come with two cds one for MAC and the other for windows. Make sure you have the right one inserted. Also make sure your printer has drivers for vista. It wouldnt hurt to check to make sure your system is malware and virus free before reinstalling. and if you are infected clean the infection out and remove restore points and make a new one. If you dont remove infected restore points you will just reinfect the machine.

Can't use HP Solution Center anymore to scan documents (I could before upgrading from Vista to 7)


did you go from xp/vista 32 bit to windows 7 32bit or did you install windows 7 64bit.
Most likely you will need updated drivers from HP, which are available at there webite support area. www.hp.com - click support - insert your model number - select your operating system - download

If you do need software, you may also need to uninstall any previously installed printer software before you install the new downloaded software.
This can be done in the add/remove programs section of the controll panel.
