HP Photosmart 3110 All-in-one - Scanner function not working


Scanning requires two-way communication between the computer and the scanner. Usually the error that you describe above indicates an issue with the USB connection. First, make sure that you are not using a USB hub. Try a new USB 2.0 (A-B) cable that is under 6' long. Try using a different USB port on the computer.

If the problem persists, check the Device Manager to see if you have a USB driver problem. (For most versions of Windows, press the Windows key + X to quickly access the menu with the Device Manager.) Expand the section labeled Universal Serial Bus controllers and look for an exclamation point or an X. Similarly check for any issues in the Devices and Printers section of the Control Panel. The All-in-One should be listed as a printer and a scanner.

I hope this helps. If you are still having problems, please add a comment with the OS version on your computer. That can help identify additional issues that could be involved.

Can't scan from HP Photosmart C7280 to my Mac Computer


The best way to scan documents from the scanner to your computer is to use HP Photosmart Essential. If you don`t already have it installed it can be downloaded from the HP site. Once in the program it is very simple to follow. It is basically a point and click operation.

Let me know how you make out and we can do other things if this doesn`t work for you.

Please remember to rate me.

This may not be the solution for you, but it worked for me. I just shut down and restarted my printer a few times. It seems that if you leave it on all day and night, the printer gets stupid. If you restart a few times, it gets healthy again. It worked for me, and I had the same error message, and I just finished scanning 4 pages.
