Will connect to internet


Try going to safe with networking.

Restart your computer and once it's restarting tap f8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode with networking. Use the arrow keys to highlight it and press enter.

Check if it works inside safe mode, if no go. Then restart to the normal mode. Update your internet card driver. You can install RadarSync to scan and install the latest drivers.

I hope this helps!

On the HP ProBook 4720s laptop, there's a button with a wifi symbol on it and a small led on the up-right corner of the key. When I got the laptop it was light blue. Seems now it's always orange....


Try enabling windows zero configuration, and using the windows wireless connection manager.

There should be an option in the ralink program to enable the feature, after that push the button and click refresh wireless networks or the refresh button.
If nothing happens or no wireless network are found try it again.

If nothing happens the second time your wireless card needs to be replaced you can consult your service manual at the hp support site for more info

Display reads "connecting to PC" nothing happening


Was this function working fine before? When you choose Scan => To Email, what the device actually do is launch the scanning software and scan it and save to temporary folder THEN open your default OUTLOOK email account and creates a new mail with the scanned file attached to it. So it could be a scanning software error or low in memory since the process requires an amount of memory.

So you better try to Scan => To File and see if the scanning completes. If you have problem with it, then try to reinstall the program of your printer and scanner in one.

Scanner not working.


I had a simular problem with my HpScanner. What I found myself, was the computer stopped recongnizing the program after a few uses. Check your computer programs and see if it's still in. Then if its not, reload it, or simply restart/reboot your computer and see if it recongnizes it then. I believe its a glitch in the programing from the scanner itself. Also just always check if your connections are easily tugged on, may have come loose. They may look connected, but the littelest separation would cause it not to function either. Let me know what happens.

Connection of a Panasonic Lumix DMC FS5 camera to PC


To easily isolate if there's a problem with your computer, try to connec the camera to a different computer and verify if it has the same problem. If it works fine, there's something in your computer that blocks your camera. it could be the USB port or some malwares. Try to scan your using your antiviurs. It is necessary to update your antivirus regularly.

Won't scan. Copies and prints. But the scan button does nothing.


Did you try scanning from your pc? I never use the printer scan button. Most scan buttons won't work without the "print center" program open as the scan always goes to the pc. I mostly use the windows scan program in the control panel. Try this.

Scanner not being recognized


Knowing your PC-System would be helpful: Is it Win (and what version) or is it Mac?).

Did you connect to a USB-hub? This wont work! You have to connect directly to a USB-port of your PC.

Do connect only by a USB-cable NO longer than 2-3m!
