Problem with c6180 when used with mac/leopard

If I'm scanning a double-sided document, the HP software will create a pdf file as soon as I scan the first side, without giving me a chance to scan the second side.

    Thanks, but the instructions you gave me I believe are for a PC.  I'm running a Mac with Leopard OS.  It doesn't give me those options, which is my problem.  I used to be able to do this just fine with the PC, but the HP software for Mac doesn't ask me if I want to scan another page.  It just automatically takes the first scan and creates a new pdf file.

What is meant by PDF in used in scanning?


If you are asking about the "SCAN TO PDF" button, it allows the scanner to create a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. PDF files are files that can be viewed with the free Adobe Reader software. The PDF format files are easy to store on your computer and easy to share. PDF files can have many pages. Image files, like JPG, can only hold one page per file.

If you use PDF files, make sure you only get the reader software from Adobe.com.

How to use my hp photosmart C5280 All in One scanner unsing mac leopard


When you install the Full Feature software for your printer, you receive the HP Photosmart Studio imaging software and the HP Utility printer management software. You can use either of these programs to scan, and can create custom settings in both.

In general, use HP Photosmart Studio to scan pictures if you want to edit them to adjust color, crop, remove red eye, etc. Use HP Utility to set up scan tasks you use often, such as scanning to a certain folder or software application, or attaching the scanned item to an email. If your printer has a display, you also use HP Utility to designate which scan tasks should appear on the printer display menu when you start a scan from the controls on the printer.

Make sure that the printer is connected to the computer. Turn it on. Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass.

Use HP Photosmart Studio to start a scan: Click the HP Photosmart Studio icon in the Dock. Click the Scan button. Select your HP product in the Device Name list, if necessary, and then click Continue. From the Scan Profiles screen, click either Pictures or Documents. Click Profile Settings , and then adjust any settings in the Capture , Adjust , and Page Options (for documents) or Enhance (for pictures) tabs as appropriate. Click Scan. When prompted, select Yes or No to add another page to the scan. The scan preview opens then click Return to close the preview and save the scan. Type a name for the scan in the Save As box. Click the Format drop-down list, select the file format you want, and then click Save.

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


Hi Lynn,

Unfortunately, HP.com 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.

C6180 stopped scanning after installing leopard


Unplug the printer from the computer, uninstall the printer software, and download the latest software and drivers from the HP website.

Leave the printer unplugged from the computer while you reinstall the software. When the installation program asks you to plug in the printer, do so.

One the software has completed installation, reattempt the scanning function.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard


I was able to get my 6110 to scan by downloading HP_Installer_PSC7100_v9.7beta.dmg .  I saw this on XLR8YourMac for another HP multi-function and on a lark I decided to try it.  During the installer it won't detect the 6110, but you are able to "Skip" to the next step until it's installed.  Then, launch "HP All-in-One Device Chooser" and you will see the 6110 listed.  After I choose it there, I was able to use "HP Scan Pro" with the 6110.  I've not really tested the rest of the applications.

HP ScanJet 7650 asking for DPE


This problem happened to me to (OfficeJet 6310xi). These steps solved my problem:

When the program has the error, there's a button so you can show it where DPE is. Click the button
Navigate to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Hewlett-Packard/HP Scan Pro/DPE/
Click on DPE 11.6.app

Then I could scan to pdf. When I upgraded to Leopard, I reinstalled my HP software, even though HP says it isn't totally compatible with leopard.
