Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My 3 year old HP PSC 1200 printer/scanner/copier suddenly won't scan now that I have a new PC running VISTA
Use windows photo gallery....file/import photo from scanner or camera

Windows photo galley fix works fine... but here's a new fix... go to HP Customer Care > HP PSC 1210 All-in-One Printer > Microsoft Windows XP > Software & Driver downloads ... and download WinXP photo editing software package, which includes a "import from scanner/camera" tool. Worked out great... just like my ole "Hp" software program. Sweet! here are a few screenshots ... pic1 ... pic2 ...

I checked with HP and they claim that everything you need to scan is included with vista. Here's how to get it working
So Vista will handle basic scanning functions, but if you need something more advanced ( Like OCR ) you may need to purchase a vista compatible scanning program like paperport. There are a few shareware or demo versions of similar software that I do not have experience with but can be found here.

Did you get the new drivers for it?
If not get them here.
If you mean the scan button. It wont work with VISTA..Here is HP'S answer to this problem.

I have a photosmart that wouldnt scan even after updating driver. But heres how to make it work. For some reason the scanner cant scan on its own, the computer has to tell it to. Go to windows photo gallery, hit file, then import from scanner, then scan. It works on mine!

HP, you just lost a customer of 11 years because of your **** poor customer service, and your lack of vista driver support for scanning or general care for your customers. Thank you target and epson for offering a $40 all in one that not only worked with vista, but even windows 7 RC 64 Ultimate.
If anyone has the same idea of putting XP on VMWare to use their printer, I've been there and tried that, and it didn't recognize my "Hewlett-Packard composite USB device"

This is worth a try, they were able to get the printer to work with Vista. Read solution #4. Good luck. If this helps plz rate this as 'fixa'. Thank you kindly.

Use windows photo gallery after installing the new drivers (solutions already noted here). scanning did work for me finally.

My all in one usb printer pulled the drivers off the web. Then I just had to go to start, all programs, windows photo gallery, file, import with scanner. If you have windows vista ultimate or business you can scan in a different format. But otherwise, as previously stated, you will need some third party software.

You can either scan through paint or windows fax and scan

Yeah we contacted the HP company SEVERAL times over the past 9 months trying to get our All IN One Printer to work and we have been told everything under the sun. Eventually they told us that the compatibility with Vista that they put on the outside of the box was not true. I will really be careful the day I make another purchase.

As much as I hate having to learn new navigation it would appear at until such time as HP comes up with updated drivers for their printers to work with VISA we all may be forced to resort to earlier ourearlier Windows versions that supported HP printers...I am using a new HP computer that came with VISTA and even with the attempts of technical support from HP could not get my HP PSC 1210 to print...it just freezes...If I do get it working in the future I will post how HP managed to reslove the problem as so far their attempts at setting the Windows generic drivers has not worked...They would do well to work with Microsoft....the Vista instructions did now work...I doubt either company has come up with a patch or solution else it would be available on their sites.
