I had the same problem with my MP180, and it worked out when I tried a different USB port in my computer. I also read elsewhere that a good quality high speed USB cable would also eliminate this problem.

If you put the installation cd in the drive and then if it autostarts close it down, then go to device manager and the properties of the scanner and update driver let pc search automatically and it should reinstall it and then all should be fine i hope , had the same problem on my all in one device

im not sure what i'm and doesn't means
the drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow?question mark this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options you can troubleshoot
hope this helps

I have upgraded my system Os from XP SP3 to Windows 7, after that when I installed Epson Stylus CX2800, everything was working fine except Scan program


Get a windows 7 driver for the printer or an update from epson, un-install the old one then reinstall the upgraded software.It did the same with my Lexmark,but I did get the newer driver from Lexmark and it worked out fine.

Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.

HP L7650 Scanner Could Not Be Initialized in Leopard (Not Found)


If you're using Vista, this happens all too regularly with HP printers. I've had a few where I have to uninstall everything then re-install to make things work.
Two weeks later the same thing, same process.
Try downloading latest drivers from HP and see if that helps. HP don't admit there's a problem.
Don't seem to have this problem with Epson printers tho.

Can't scan


Any idea what MSI error message you had? HP has a product page for the PSC 1315. Click here to go to the product page. Once you're on the product page, you can search for MSI and you'll get a number of pages to choose from. You need to know the specific error message to choose the right one. HOWEVER, those errors mostly look like ones you'd see while installing.

If you didn't see those errors when you were installing, you might try to uninstall and reinstall your software/drivers. The drivers HP has for download are newer than the drivers that were on the CD when you bought the printer. The newer drivers are available here.
