Try another USB Printer Cable, that noramlly solves the problem,, if it still doesn't recognize it then you must send it in to check the Mainboard of the printer which will also cause the problem

Have fun

SOURCE: Scanning

My HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One used to scan but suddenly it would not. The HP website offers up three solution options to fix this. Their solution #2 worked for me. See below. The HP Solution Center they are referencing should already by on your computer from when you installed the printer software. It should be under the Start Menu-->All Programs-->HP-->HP Solution Center. From there you just follow these directions. Please note: When I went to add the destinations, instead of saying 'Microsoft Word' next to the Word icon, it just had random symbols. But it still worked to add them to the destination list.

Solution two: Populate the destination list The destination list in HP Solution Center must be populated in order for the Scan To function to work. Follow these steps to populate the destination list. Attempt the scan again after the procedure is complete. If the scan fails, try to scan using the scan function in HP Solution Center. NOTE: HP Solution Center is the software that came with the product. It must be installed on the computer for all the product functions to work correctly, and it is necessary for completing this procedure. Install HP Solution Center if it is not already installed.

  1. From HP Solution Center, make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Settings .
  2. Click Scan Settings and Preferences .
  3. Click Scan to... Setup .
  4. Click the Destination List tab. NOTE: It might take several minutes for the list to populate. If the appropriate programs are already listed as scan destinations, discontinue this procedure. The software must be reinstalled.
  5. Click each program to include on the Scan To list.
  6. Click the Add arrow. The program listing moves from the left side of the screen to the right.
  7. Click OK .
  8. Attempt the scan again. Try to scan from Solution Center if scanning from the control panel is unsuccessful.

How do I get the scanner to work on my computer

your printer probably has a software to install.

this software has the mode to scanner and to scan. the pc has a printer connection right? and.... how to scan should be on the software for the printer. it recognizes the printer and it's looking for a scanner, this is why is telling you scanner connection under the scanner connections but if the use is with the printer as a scanner, it must've a software. maybe the printer a scanner button so the pc recognizes it as scanner.

This is driving me mad! I had a canon mp150 and the scanner stopped working! After a lot of messing around i thought i'd just buy another printer as i thought the problem might just be the mp150...

Download and install the latest driver for your printer from Canon. Install the driver first, connect the printer to the computer using a different USB port than you usually use for the printer, then restart your computer.

Won't scan, says usb cord not connected, but it is.

The fact that the printer wont recognize that your USB cable is connected when scanning can be caused by multiple factors.
The first is that the scanner is not installed, please check on your computer in Control Panel / Scanners and cameras to see if it is installed.
If it is, also make sure the software that came with your HP scanner is installed and running.
If this still does not work, try scanning from your computer, if that fails you need to reinstall the drivers and software.
