Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP psc 2175 all inone printer

The printer will not scan.  I press start once, nothing happens. I press start again it says busy.  Eventually a message shows saying printer and computer not connected.  It may say to re-install something.  I unplugged the cords and that did not help.  It used to work.  The ports seem loose inside the tower.

    I don't understand your system. You advertise a solution, but all I see is a comment that someone else has the same problem.

I switched from a dial-up connection to DSL, and when I tried to print something, nothing happened. The printer is on and acts like it will print, but nothing happens. Help?

I had this problem once before after changing ink cartridges, and I came to this site for help. I knew that I was supposed to press two buttons at the same time, but I could not remember which two. After reading a post here, I was reminded that the two buttons that must be pressed at the same time are "setup" and "options." It worked once again under these new circumstances. Thanks Again!

Try pulling the cartridge out and re-install a couple of times, also check to see if everything is clean inside printer, paper scraps can get into things and cause trouble

I assume you have Vista and when the scan button is pressed on the product, nothing happens. The scan button does not work correctly. Workaround
Choose one of the following options to scan without using the scan button. Option one: Scan using Windows Fax and Scan
  1. Click the Windows icon (c01319360.gif), click Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.
    NOTE: The Windows Fax and Scanoption is available in the Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editionsof Windows Vista. If you have the Home Basic or Home Premium edition ofWindows Vista, skip to Option two: Scan using Paint.
  2. Click New scan.
  3. Click File, and then click Scan.
Option two: Scan using Paint
  1. Click the Windows icon (c01319360.gif), click Programs, and then click Accessories.
  2. Click Paint.
  3. Click File, and then click From Scanner or Camera.
  4. Click Scan.
Cause The drivers in the Windows Vista operating system do not support button press functionality on the product.

Switch the unit. let it rest for half an hour. While it is resting check the manual for any 'faults' list. Look for a 'reset' command - may be mean pressing several buttons while the machine is off and then with the buttons still pressed switch on the machine[you may need two hands and a nose or three hands for this ;-)] If still out of luck go to places for further info HP technical support team or www,
