Question about HP LaserJet 2840 Printer
I recently changed printers to a HP LASERJET PRINTER 2840, but it wont scan to windows fax and scan.. when you hit "scan" in windows fax and scan, it comes up with an error message -
"scan could not complete"
I have installed the driver etc, as it prints, faxes etc, its just wont scan.
When you press "scan" on the machine it comes up with "device is reserved for PC scan"
Any ideas on how i could fix this problem would be MOST appreciated!
Well........ first of all it depends on the Operating System on you computer, then starting from there the advice that i can give you it is to fully uninstall the software and then install the software back using the version that is on hp.com
after that when you have the full sw installed you have to set up the scan button on the printer from the twain scan window but that will be a piece of cake. just make sure ot get the software properly installled.
