Question about HP PSC 1350 All-In-One Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Scanner component stopped communicating

I've been using the scanner part of the all in one extensively (to scan in over 750 photos). The scanner has been working fine. I was able to preview, adjust the photos, scan and save to the computer. Then suddenly last night I started receiving the error: The HP imaging device could not be initialized. An error has occurred communicating with the device. Make sure that the device's power cord and cable are properly attached and plugged in. Refer to HP service and support on the web for more help with this error. The scanning software might be installed improperly or their might be a device conflict. Nothing has changed on my computer - no new software or hardware has been added. I unplugged and replugged the printer in numerous times. Turned the computer off and the printer off, unplugged it and left it undone for 20 minutes. Still receive the error. The error occurs after the scan appears to be complete but before the actual save to a file occurs. The only thing I haven't done is uninstall the printer software and reinstall it. Any other ideas?

Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.
