I have the hp director icon on my desk top and have used it in the past. It will not respond now when I want to scan.


do you use HP Director for HP Printer ? IF so, the HP Director may not work now as it is for long stopped by HP for Scanning use.

You can try this patch from HP Website for HP Director

try the above patch and restart your pc and try HP Director.
OR else
You will have to download the latest drivers from HP website and install them

Hp director does not open when i click on the icon


Hi,

After installing (MS IE 7 or MS IE 8) browser on the computer that is connected to the HP product,This issue occurs on some HP products. The MS IE 7 or 8 browsers might be incompatible with HP Director
Follow these steps to use a workaround to open HP Director each time you use the software. These steps must be repeated each time you use HP Director.  

1-Open HP Director using one of the following methods:
From the desktop : On your computer's desktop, look for the HP Director icon ( ), and then double-click it. 
From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP or Hewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director .
Although HP Director does not appear to be open , it is open and loaded into the computer's memory, but it does not open in a new window as usual.
2-Without navigating to another open window, press Alt and Space bar at the same time. 
The Shortcut menu displays near the top-left corner of the computer.
Figure 1: Shortcut menu

If the Shortcut menu does not open, repeat steps 1 and 2 until it does.
3-Select Minimize from the Shortcut menu. 
HP Director displays (minimizes) as an item on the taskbar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
If HP Director does not minimize, click Minimize again until it does.
4-Click the HP Director icon on the taskbar ( ). The software opens and functions normally. NOTE: The HP Director window and icons might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.

5-Repeat Steps 1 through 4 every time you use HP Directo

Thanks,

I am trying to load hp psc 2175 all in one into the dell computer we have and i take it the computer doesnt recognize the hardware how can i get it to recognize this piece of equipment for i have loaded...


The major problem occurs ?????? You keep on trying installing but it will not succeed????????.

The solution change your usb cable and buy one good quality cable specified as USB 2.0 standard I hope your problem will be solved

Remember one thing never install the software while your printer is connect and live - disconnect it and install from the cd because hp installation is programmed accordingly that you have to install the driver first and it will ask to make it live and it automatically detect and register the port in your system.

Thanks from Hothawk

HP Director won't open. I am on XP and IE7


HP Director has a flaw and is not compatible with IE7
I have a psc 1100 and I had to update my software from HP

CHECK THIS OUT

Go to HP, this link, type in your printer model #.

It still may fail to show...if it does not show HP recommends this
work around.
Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.

Unable to locate printer


Also check that:

1. It is the DEFAULT printer in the computer you are using
2. Load driver again from the manufacturer's CD and not the WIndows driver.
3. Check your USB cable and consider trying a differnt cable also.
