That, and be sure that you have the right cords on the printer. Have you tried unplugging the machine from the CPU, rebooting,and then allowing Windows to "find" it all by itself?
That often takes care of problems as well.

My HP Photosmart C5180 no longer scans to my Mac OSX 10.6.8

For a worst case scenario you may have to reinstall your Operating System. But try installing Auslogics BoostSpeed and running the diagnostics. Have you installed anything prior to the problem? Sometimes new software can corrupt old system files when you install. Try uninstalling the last software you installed. Hope this helps.

I have an HP Photosmart 2575 and the message "refer to device documentation" appears when I try to scan. (Printer stopped scanning with installation of updated operating system) I use Mac OS X version...

The printer scan button wouldn't work for me either. I had to install the HP Solution Center software from CD onto my Windows Vista PC then I use its scan document software button to do any scanning.

I have a Photosmart 3310 that I use with a MacBook Pro. I have scanned before but all of a sudden I can't scan. I have tried restarting, reinstalling software, restarting Photoshop. Help!!!

Don't reinstall Photoshop any more, that's not necessary. Just leave PS alone.
Have you done anything, like upgraded the operating system?
Try a couple of things. We'll start with the easiest.
Try scanning directly from the "Preview" application - this works really well.
Open the application "Preview"
Go to the File menu, and then "Import from Scanner" - hopefully your scanner shows up ...
This is a great way to scan.
If your printer/scanner does not show up when you do this, you will need to (sorry to say) re-install the software for the printer. But you said you already did that!
I'm going to suggest, if you haven't already, to go to and find your printer and download the package of software for it and reinstall that way - they periodically update the software. HP printers are a bit fussy about this, so reinstalling the "latest" HP software is definitely worth trying.
Hope that helps!

When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?

You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

Hope that helps!

well........ first of all it depends on the Operating System on you computer, then starting from there the advice that i can give you it is to fully uninstall the software and then install the software back using the version that is on
after that when you have the full sw installed you have to set up the scan button on the printer from the twain scan window but that will be a piece of cake. just make sure ot get the software properly installled.

Wont scan

It sounds like your software did not install completely. What operating system are you using? Have you tried to download new drivers from HP,s web site. Did you get any errors on the driver installation? Here is a link for the new drivers. This may fix the problem.. I also found another link for your problem if your software only installed 96% and you only have 2 icons in HP director or solution center this will cause scan problems. Please look at 2nd link first. Please let me know if this helps.
1st link for drivers is.
2nd link for scan problem is
