    I printed document that I needed my signature. After I signed it I wanted to scan it so I could send it by e-mail to a vendor. When I pushed the scan button on my HP DeskJet 380 the green light at the top began blinking and the machine did not scan my document. Do you have a solution for this problem. I've tried to download update programs from the Internet but with no success. Can you help?

How do i scan a document so that i can attach it or save it to a flash drive?


It will depend on if you have the full software installed and want to use that software or another program. Put the document face down on the glass or face up in an Auto-document Feeder.

Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Solution Center). Click Scan Picture or Scan Document and adjust the settings if desired and click OK. Set the scan destination and file type. Then press Scan. If you want to use the buttons on the scanner to launch the scan software on the computer, you need to set up the scan to destinations and settings in the Solution Center first.

WinXP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner), Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery (download from Microsoft for Win7).

I hope this helps.

Using my F380 all in one, how do I scan to my


Scan an image
You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.
This section explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only.
To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on.
The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
● On a Mac, the software is always running.
Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.
To scan to a computer
1. Place your original print side down on the left front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan.
A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it.
3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.
To stop scanning ➔ Press Cancel on the control panel.
If this doesn't work for some reason you should also be able to scan using windows camera and scanning wizard, the link will show you how if you have XP, just scroll down past the "how to print" section.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/hwandprograms/printfaxscan.mspx
or this if you have Vista:
If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.
If this is the case then you can download a free program called IrfanView from there site: http://www.irfanview.com/
Click the Start icon. Click All Programs .
Click Windows Photo Gallery .
Click File and then click Import From Scanner or Camera .
Click Import .
Click Scan .

If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.

Have a hp f380 all in one deskjet printer with M/S Vista OS


Hi,

Ofcourse, if there is any software or patch, there will be free on the HP website. However, as you have mentioned, that you are able to print, that shows that the printing software is working fine, to test the scanning part, please confirm that you are able to make a copy or not from the front panel of the printer by placing a text document on the scanner bed, close the scanner lid and then press color copy. If you are able to make a copy fine, that shows that the printer functionality is working fine.

The issue could be with the communication or with the scanning software. To check the communication between the printer and the computer, perform the following steps on the Windows XP computer or Vista computer, be sure that the printer should be connected directly to the computer via USB cable at the back side of the tower without any USB HUB, as you are using a Deksjet F380, it is a USB connectivity printer.

XP:
Follow the below steps to Scan using WIA (Windows Image acquisition)

1.Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.
2.Click Start then Click All Programs then Click Accessories then Click Scanner and Camera Wizard.
3.Follow the Scanner and Camera Wizard instructions to scan images to the computer.

Vista:
1. Press Windows logo and R on the keyboard*.
It will open a small run dialog box at the bottom left corner of the screen.
2. In the Run box type WIAACMGR and press enter.
3. Follow the onscreen insturctions and complete the scanning.

If you are able to scan fine using the above steps, then it shows that there is a communnication between the printer and the computer.

Please get back to me with the exact error message you are receiving when you try to scan from the computer, as to scan from the printer you should be able to scan fine from the computer (i.e., From HP Solution Center/ HP Director). So that I can assist you in much better way.


With Regards.
Mike.

Installing HP c3180 on windows vista


Hi,
Here's the link ro download the Vista driver for your Printer/Scanner:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1146331

You should uninstall the XP driver for the Printer and install this instead: HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

You should use the uninstaller utility on the HP support page on the link provided, and after installing the new driver.

You can also scan and copy in Vista 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 C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One Compatible with vista


I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.

However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
good luck

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
