How do I get the scanner to work on my computer

your printer probably has a software to install.

this software has the mode to scanner and to scan. the pc has a printer connection right? and.... how to scan should be on the software for the printer. it recognizes the printer and it's looking for a scanner, this is why is telling you scanner connection under the scanner connections but if the use is with the printer as a scanner, it must've a software. maybe the printer a scanner button so the pc recognizes it as scanner.

Make Sure Scanner is powered up and connected via USB

Connect scanner to a different USB port in your PC.

If it prompts to install driver, reinstall it with the provided drivers.

Go to Control Panel -> Devices and Printers & see if you can detect Lexmark scanner there.

If still not, you can try out a different OS or a laptop just to make sure that scanner is working properly.Post results if you tried this option.

Either the driver is corrupted or the scanner component is faulty.

Reinstall the driver for your device. If still a problem and the other functions work, but not the scanner, the scanner part is faulty.

Hope this helps.

Nothing will connect

Ok try this, Uninstall the printer, install the drivers from the cd, follow the directions while installing the drivers and see if that works.
Do NOT connect the printer untill the software tells you to, this is important.

I have a hp deskjet f2180 all in one printer scanner copier we have tried to add to my lap top but the lap top does not recognise the hp deskjet f2180 and we dont know what else is compatable with

What operating system are you running on your laptop? This model only supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS/X. Make sure you have installed the printer USB drivers (included on the printer software CD) first. If you are connecting the printer directly to the laptop, all you should then need to do is connect the printer to the mains power, turn it on, and connect the USB cable between the printer and the laptop. If you are connecting to a printer that is connected to another computer, you mus make sure printer sharing is enabled on the computer the printer is physically connected to.

I may be able to provide a better solution if you can provide more information on your Laptop operating system and how the printer will be connected.
