I get error 7 when scanning.

I have a problem when scanning devices come up.

It just says "A machine error has occurred. Please check the machine". On the machine I have E7. Any ideas?

Error is probably E7-11 Push the start button to see the last two digits. E7-11 is the copier white balance error when using the document feeder. Either the white sheet on the bottom of the doc feeder that rides on the small strip of glass on the right side, or the optics are dirty. Clean either with windex sprayed on a soft cotton rag or paper towel. If this does not fix the problem, then you may need a new MCU circuit board.

Connection issue between XP Pro and HP C6180 all-in-one

Hi Lynn,

Unfortunately, doesn't have a very satisfying online solution to your problem. Still, there are a few things you can try.

The first is a general diagnostic check of your scanner. HP provides a doc that takes you through some steps, many of which you probably already tried, to see if it's a simple fix:

An error occurred while communicating with scanning device

The next document is a set of diagnostic steps to address errors trying to scan to a PDF:

An error occurred while trying to scan to a PDF

I don't know if the current situation was created by a fault in the device or some recent change in your configuration settings. I do know you can use the HP Director software installed on your computer to set the scan destination settings:

Settting "Scan To" Destination using HP Director

Those were the most relevant solutions I could find for you. I hope some of this information is helpful. Good luck.
