Re: scanning

Yes , also check to see how old your printer is first.

If it is new the Vista drivers may work, I say this because there is Vista 32 bit and 64 bit, compatibility issues.

If you are using XP, and the printer is old, you maybe in luck. Your original CD will work just install it and use the menu on your computer to scan the image.

If your printer is old and you have Vista, your software may not work.
You eventually will need to buy a newer fax machine with the latest drivers.

Don't forget, Windows 7 is going to be out soon. Most computers will be sold with Windows 7 loaded in them. Check to see if one of the system requirements on the new fax can use Windows 7 software.
Good luck.

Re: scanning

I guess the first thing we have to do is download and install scanning software and drivers for your printer on to your ibook.

Go to HP web and do so, if you still have trouble let us know
here is a link for your printer and mac/windows systems

When I attempt to scan from the 5510 it displays a messsage that says " need scanning software". I find this strange in that My wife ( THAT may be the problem in and of itself) recently scanned...

What application are you using to initiate the scan? If you have the HP software go to document viewer to initiate a scan. Have you tried initiating a scan from MS Word for example?
If you are using the HP application check all the options.
It sounds like it doesn't know what software to associate with the scan, perhaps you or your better half has changed the file format it saves to (jpg/bmp/pdf etc) and that has confused things otherwise I can't think why this might happen.
If all else fails deinstall and reinstall the software that came with the device.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

My hp 5510 all-in-one won't scan photos

Unfortunately the 5510 is no longer supported by HP for OS X 10.5.x and up. On the Apple tech site, they actually redirect you to a page the HP upgrade page (read: buy a new one).

If anyone can think of any 3rd part software that works with this, please post!

My printer will no longer scan since I hooked it up to new computer. Help, I have a 5510 All in one HP

I recently found that my 5510 would not scan text into the OCR. I found out that the program the 5510 uses to scan text, HP Director has an issue with Internet Explorer 7.0. If you go to the HP web site and do a search for HP Director, you will be directed to several options for fixing this problem. The option that worked for me was to download their fix.

I am having problems with scanning my pictures in the copying area . I tried reinstalling the hp psc2400 officejet 5510 and nothing is happening. Please help me I need my printer. Thank you Yvette

try lowering the scan resolution ie to 150 dpi to save memory, if this works then add another memory module to your pc if higher resolution is required
