I am able to scan on my photosmart c7280 by going to hp solutions on computer and selecting scan on the menu (follow directions from there.) I tried unsucessfully to scan directly from printer and could not do it. I'm no expert, just a persistant user. Scanning can be done wirelessly on this printer.

Hello,

Scanning thru a wireless connection is not supported on these printers. Printing does not require that much data to be sent back to the computer, scanning of course does. Printers require a bi-directional signal path to allow scanning such as USB and parallel ports. Sorry to be the barer of bad news.

Cannot find the driver for my wireless hp c4380 photosmart printer. cannot scan..frustarated


See my published guide entitled How to Install the latest drivers for Hewlett Packard Printer!!!

They may have the drivers for your printer.
Although if I am not mistaken if you disconnect your printer from the computer and the printer is on you should be able to scan documents and print them. All without the need for a computer.
That would be to copy a document.
On the other hard maybe you want to scan to a file onto your computer, yes I think that is what you want to do. Yes you are quite correct, you will need to install the drivers for the printer.

Try and use the USB connection if you are having problem with wireless, it some-times gives problems.

Take care!

HP photosmart C5580 How scan to computer?


scanning through bluetooth is not possible bluetooth module only pairs the computer and printer and has link only to the basic driver of the computer so you can only print from it
if you want to scan you should connect te usb cable or use a wireless upgrade kit

Unable to print on wireless network or send e-mail


Recheck that the printer is shared by the computer it is connected to and that all PCs are on the same network. If no success try disabling the firewall on the pc that your printer is connected to. (If printing now works readjust the firewall permissions).

On the second open Internet Explorer; Tools; Internet Options; Connections and make sure that there is a selection for... Never dial a connection.

My HP C7200 printer won't print from the photo tray



If you using a mac: After choosing the Photosmart C7200 to print your file on the print preview, change PAPER SIZE to 4x6, then lower down, change from PREVIEW to PAPER TYPE/QUALITY, more options will open underneath, on SOURCE, change from MAIN TRAY to PHOTO TRAY. You should also change the PAPER TYPE to some kind of PHOTO PAPER (whichever one your using, but the standard seems to be HP ADVANCED PHOTO PAPER)

Prints extra blank page for every one page of printed material


Ok, I too have HP Photosmart 7280 and it was spit'g out a blank page after each print page.
I went into the Control Panel/Printers - Right click on the HP Photosmart 7200 series icon and choose delete. Don't worry...just delete it.
Right above (Vista) click on Add a Printer - it's going to ask you if you want to add a local printer which is connected via USB connection or if you are set up wireless then choose Network
It will find your printer click on the printer hit next - then this is the most important step
It will ask you to find the manufacturer it shows Hewlett-Packard and underneath it shows HP - Do not click on HP - you'll have the same problem with that driver - choose Hewlett-Packard and find this driver HP Photosmart C7200 series Version 61.71.244.0 [3/23/07]
Hopefully they are all digitally signed with this information.
Click on that driver and click next - then click on replace the current driver and click next.
Print a test page and problem should be solved. Hope it helped!
