Will not scan

Hi ..

There could be many reason for not scanning. It could be drivers or could be the cable which is connecting your printer to your computer. If you have already tried to re-install the drivers, try and unplug the usb cable and plug it again. If that does not work, try and plug your USB cab directly to the printer and see if that work.

The scanner keeps saying that my USB is not plugged in and it is

There is a workaround without messing with drivers. I have the same problem if I use the buttons on the v40 and try to scan. I get the V40 can not connect to the PC message.


Go to Control Panel-->Scanners and Cameras

In there you will find: Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet V40 Scanner

Right click and select Scan. It will then start the scan wizard which will scan your document.
