Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Is there a way to use just the HP scanner without going through the HP interface. I just want to use the scanner directly from the hpqscnvw.exe file in Windows 7/64. I was able to do this with no pr

I do not want to reinstall the HP software again as each time I do, the drive letter of the printer changes or I have to reinstate all of my settings and defaults. Or is there a reliable (Free) scanner program available that I could use instead? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

No scan options


Did you install the full software before connecting the all-in-one to the computer? If the printer not scanning to the local computer or a networked computer? Were you trying to use the scanner buttons?

If this is a local problem (USB connection) uninstall any generic driver (these only drive the printer) and then unplug the data cable. Next download and install the software from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=439491& (select your OS from the list). Connect data cable when prompted to do so. Try a new data cable if the problems persist (scanners require bidirectional communication and will fail when the printer works).
Try a direct connection (no USB hub or print server).

If the computer failed to respond to scanner button press, make sure that the monitoring program is running. You also need to set up the scan destinations in the HP Solution Center for the buttons to work.

If the scanner program isn't running, you can launch them manually. Computer > Local Disc (C:) > Program Files > HP > Digital Imaging > Bin (double click on each of the above drives/folders). Find either Hpiscnapp.exe or Hpqscnvw.exe and double click to launch the HP scan program.

XP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans without the HP software but the scanner buttons will not work. All three can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan).

Since you need to set the destinations, you should use the HP software to launch scans first. This lets you get a feel for the defaults that will be best to put into the destinations.

I hope this helps.

Can't scan from printer or computer


Close the Digital Imaging Monitor.
◄ Start or restart the services :
1. HP Cue Device Discovery.
2. HP Net Device Discovery.
3. HPQCS08.
◄ Run Digital Imaging Monitor.
◄ Wait for a Minute, if the configuration screen appears it is done else refresh the HP Cue Device Discovery
◄ Restart the Printer
◄ 99% chances of resolution and in the other cases a proper uninstall and reinstall is needed

Communication error occurred with scanning component. Please advise on how to solve this problem.


First try to scan from the scanners and camera wizard in control panel to check the communication between the computer and the all-in-one. If we are able to scan fine from the control panel, then search for the scanning file hpqscnvw.exe and try to scan from there, if you are able or not able to scan from the scanning file, download the scan diagnostic utility from the HP website and run it and try to scan, if the issue persists reinstall the all-in-one software.

F380 hp all in one


This issue occurs if the scanning files are not installed properly. Once search for the hpqscnvw.exe file and try to scan from there and check for the result. If you are able to scan then download scan diagnostic utility from the hp.com and run it. If the issue persists reinstall the software.

Scanner won't work but the printer does


Ok here is the answer you have all been waiting for - look on the CD that came with any HP printer for the mac and you will see that it is for 10.3.9 and 10.4. I bet you dollars to donuts you have the new 10.5 leopard software and you got the new printer for free from the apple store.

All is not lost - go to the hp website at www.hp.com and on the left side you will see a grey menu that says software and driver downloads click on it and type your product. The version right now is 9.7.1 once you get all the way through. DO NOT INSTALL THE HP INSTALLER FILE - it is the same as the CD.

Well on the off chance your using windows the same applies - delete the old software on your computer and follow the steps above. The version number you will need depends on what OS but just make sure it is the most recent and you should be fine.
