Wireless HP 6180 PhotoSmart All in ONe will not scan document to my computer

When I attempt to scan a document from my C6180 All in One to the computer...it will not scan...gives me an error message...refer to device documentation to troubleshoot. It has allowed me to scan before without a problem....but in the past couple times I have tried it gives me that message. I have gone through the manual, even reinstalled the printer....nothing seems to work. Please advise I have HP C6180 and HP Pavilion dv3510nr (window vista). The wireless communication between my notebook and C6180 is good for printing only. I can not scan throught the network. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Well its the issue with the printer drivers taking a dynamic ip address.all you need to do is uninstall the printer network drivers,insert the s/w cd that came with the printer and then click on add a device ,it would install the printer drivers all over again.

I have the HP 6180 Photosmart All in One and I have a newer GaTEWAY COMPUTER. It will not scan my documents and I really am afraid to run the software, as it may stop printing for me. I am not really savvy...


Hi,

Please give me below information and we can narrow down to fix this problem.

  1. What is the operating system of Gateway Comuter?
  2. Do you get any error message while scanning? what is that error?
  3. Were you able to scan earlier?
  4. How is the printer connected; by USB cable? Ethernet? or Wireless?
Regards,

How can I scan with HP Photosmart 6180? I have Vista 32-bit; printer is connected to my network via the ethernet port (fixed). Thanks ... Puzzeled Mark


If you installed the full-featured HP software (for Vista), you should be able to scan from there.

If not, there is a work-around solution to scan from Vista without using the HP software:

HP C 6180 will not not print or scan


As an IT admin at a small school district I can attest to the scan in print issues via network with this model. Our eventual solution after HP provided little help was to USB it to a workstation and then share it with limited rights to users. It was most stable otherwise with only bare drivers loaded and not using any associated HP software

Scanning


The 6180 memory device refers to the removable memory devices that can be loaded into the slots on the front of the machine, not the scanner. Your devices are configured wrong.

 

The scanner is a TWAIN device and therefore requires a Twain driver. Accessing Twain sources requires you to SELECT SOURCE for your scanning software.

 

Just un-install, re-boot, then re-install the drivers for the 6180. Make sure to allow the resident software that runs on your PC to run in the background.  HP needs the "ImageMonitor" and other software to run in order to "feed" your scanning software.
