Re: HP F380 not scanning

This has happened to me on several occasions with a couple of different HP all-in-one scanner/printer's. The HP driver/program itself may be in a phase where it's attempting to complete a scan, which would prevent you from scanning anything else. You can confirm whether or not this is the problem by restarting your computer and attempting another scan. You'll get an error message saying the scanner is currently in use. You may want to try to completely remove the installation files for the scanner, and reinstall either from the disk or let windows install it for you via "plug and play". Then update the drivers from hp's website. See if that resolves your problem.

Hi all, I have a F380 All in one from HP connected to a HP Pavillion w5540 with Windows XP SP3, and everything is working properly. However, when I hit the "scan button" it opens the utility software...

Do not hit the SCAN button. Instead, use the HP software, and click the "Align" button.
Follow the on-screen instructions (print the page, put the page into the scanner) very carefully.

Check the power and the data (USB) cables in the printer...check both ends...
Check :-
# The printer powers on properly
# There also can be problems with the printer driver
# and also internal printers....
Try reinstalling the printer driver...

F380 all-in-one scan problem

I have this problem w/a different printer adding it to a computer w/OS Vista. Go to Start, All programs, Accessories, Paint and open that program. Click on File and then From Scanner or Camera. Make sure your all in one is turned on. Unfortunely, there is no fix to make the scanner button work if it is not compatable, such as my 'all in one' w/Vista. Hope this helps. Linda
