Question about HP PSC 2355 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP PSC 2355

I have it connected to a Mac book Pro. 2 probs:

1) the scanner software does not give any sign to work or be installed. I downloaded fresh software for Macintosh and there is just no sign of this machine being a scanner. If I copy a sheet, the glass scanning base works properly.

2) very annoying problem: the mechanism that rolls the paper is very noisy and squeaks like a door hinge that needs oiling. how do we solve this one?

thank you. E.

    It's the same problem:  the printer and copier work fine, but the scanner does not work.  When I go to scan a picture, the printer says the software or drivers haven't been installed, while the computer says it does not even detect the device.

    i have a macbook pro and hp psc 2355. printer works but scanner isnt recognized. what can i do?

    I have the same problem, except I have a macbook. For some reason it worked just fine, scanner and all on my imac. On the mac book it prints and copies, just no scanner which is really frustrating when trying to do digital art and you can't scan your sketches in.

I just successfully fixed this problem only moments ago. My scanner had stopped working for several months, and nothing seemed to work. Then I went to the following link:

Download it, install it, and happy scan-print-copying! You don't have to do anything special, just a regular install. Good luck!

I replaced the color cartridge with a HP95 replacement and when I put the lid back down I got the error message "Remove and check color cartridge." I did but nothing seemed wrong. I put the original back in and got the same message. A third cartridge did the same thing. I wiped the contacts with a Q-tip and got the same message. Anybody have this problem before?

Same problem with scanner

There are actually 2 critical updates for your PSC try downloading both uninstall the printer again and start afresh. Remember remove any HP programmes that have been installed and to discnnect the printer before reinstalling. This should solve your problem hopefully.

My macbook does not detect my HP scanjet 5300c

Please try with the "Hp Image Zone" application, that you can download from HP's website, or install with your CD.
Does that help?

HP PSC 2355 all-in-one printer not scanning

You need to start the HP software that's installed on your PC.

In Win XP, go to Start menu, look down the list of installed programs, and click on HP Director to start it up. Your scanner should work now, either from the scan buttons on the printer, or from the scan options within HP Director.

HP PSC 2355 all-in-one scanning problem

hi shaundoyle -

first, I wanted to point you to HP's general support page for your model:

here is another link, this one to a doc for connecting to more than one HP product using a Mac:

here's a link to a doc about the scanning stopping:

and yet another link, this one for probs printing through 'classic' applications:

it sounds like one piece of software overwrote another, or your two pieces of hardware are fighting each other for your Mac's attention. hope this helps a little.
