HP c6180 scanner problems jun 2009

My C6180 has worked flawlessly also, i think it was a recnt hp update that has thrown these out, I to am able to print from my computer. When I try to scan from my computer, it cannot find the scanner. HP solution center software now reports "no HP device detected". I uninstalled everything and reinstalled th disk and then contacted hp and they advised me to reinstall from the website which i have done and it still does not work??? I too need some help here as everything is working except the scanning software

@msat538,
I believe your printer problems are unrelated to your browser update. You likely have a few failed capacitors on your printer's logic board. I have a HP C6180 all in one printer that started displaying an ink system failure message. Eventually it powered off then on by iteslf every 15 seconds or so, making the printer unusable. Take the logic board cover off (on the C6180 is is on the right end of the printer), remove the logic board and look for failed capacitors (they will be puffed on the top (see image). If this is the case, you will have to have them replaced (easily done with a soldering pen). The replacement parts are inexpensive (less than $1.00) I hope this helps.

I can't get my HP potosmart C6180 ALL IN ONE PRINTER TO SCAN/COPY OR FAX WITHOUT GETTING A SCANNER FAILURE MESSAGE SAYING UNABLE TO SCAN,COPY OR SEND A FAX


Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg

Printer will only print, not copy fax or scan


Hi,
It is possiblethat the all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work with Vista, after some update or other. You did the right thing by uninstalling and reinstalling. Make sure you have the correct driver from the HP site..

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C6180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
