There are multiple ways to use the scanner on your Mac. If your Mac recognizes the scanner as a device, then you can use the scan from the Mac using Preview or Image Capture apps (in your Applications folder). You can also use Picasa by going to the import function and finding the scanner and try it from there. If you are having issues getting the HP scanner to recognize the Apple device. Here is the official website for the download from HP. Apple drivers sometimes do the job of getting the scanner to be recognized, but the official drivers might do better.
First, make sure the HP Digital Imagin Monitor is running on your computer. Start it if it is not currently running. Open HP Soluction Center and select your printer (if there are multiple printers listed) and click on Settings. Click Scan Settings and Preferences. Click Scan To... Setup. Click on Destination List. Make sure that the scan destinations you want are populated in the right-hand list box. If the destination list is already populated, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the software.
IN XP click on start and select control panel. in control panel on the top left hand click on switch to classic view if is not there dont worry. Next Goto printers and faxes and then right click the printer icon and select printing prefrences and in the advanced tab make sure that duplex printing is enabled.
IN vista Click on start in the start search box type "printers" and click on ok. Single left click your printer and then single right click your printer icon and single left click the option that says printing prefrences. in the advanced tab make sure that duplex printing is enabled.Now try to give the scan command and it will work as long as the paper is fed in from the adf it will be better
I am not an expert, only a c7280 user. I use my printer wirelessly and was having problem scanning when using the controls directly on the printer (scan menu). By trial and error, I tried scanning by going to HP solution center on my computer and just followed the directions from the scan menu. That worked. If you can print wirelessly, you can scan wirelessly. I agree the HP support is a huge waste of time. I only get mad talking to them.
