My hp officejet j3680 doesn't want to scan anything everything else seems ok but i don't have the disk any more and it says to refer to product device documentation top troubleshoot ..i do have it...

Some laptops cannot run some printers/copiers/scanners from the usb ports. If you have always run your officejet from your laptop with everything functioning correctly, there may be a problem with your printer hardware. If you have just tried it with your laptop, it may mean that your laptop cannot power your printer. It might help to plug your laptop into an AC outlet and make sure you have the most current, correct drivers for your printer. You can go to the HP website to download drivers. Will your printer make copies? If not, there may be a problem with the light in your printer which is used for copying and scanning.

You can determine if your problem is with the printer or the laptop by connecting the printer to a desktop by usb or printer port to see if all of its functions work correctly. If they do, you can print from the laptop through a home network.

How do I set up the scanner on my HP J3680?

use the CD that came with the has the full feature software that will enable the printing and scanning capability of the printer.

Need advice on how to resize images using the scanner on the hp officejet j3680, I want to take one image from scanned page and make it a certain sizem may last scanner was great and easy to use this one...

I believe you can only adjust it from within your destination scan program. In other words, scan first, open the scan in your editing program and adjust the size from there.

Office Jet K60xi Scanner Failure

Try HP's web site suggestions first.

If your sacnner still fails to function, uninstall everything for the Officejet through add/remove in control panel. (Power off printer before uninstalling).
Go to Hp's web site.
Step 1. Click, Download drivers and software (and firmware).
Go to step 2. For product, type in Officejet k60xi .
Power on your printer. (Wait for printer to fully power on).
Click, Start Detection>> button.
Allow HP to scan your system & install the latest software.
Follow the on scren instructions. (When finished, restart your PC). Test your scanner by scanning something.
If your scanner still fails to scan, you may be missing basic HP files loaceted in windows system & windows system32 folders.
(These missing files were not installed during your install of windows). Not your fault.
