There are two options.

Option 1
Make sure your computer is on. Insert the document you want to scan. Click on the scan button on the printer. The document will automatically be scanned and saved in your computer in mydocument under mypicture->my scans folder.

Option 2
Insert the document which you want to scan in the scanner. From your computer invoke HP Solutions Center. There you will see options to scan the document.

Please note for both the options you must have installed all the softwares which came with your printer.

How do you scan a document onto your computer


If your printer supports scanning, then the main issue you have is
software to control the printer and DO something with the document once it is scanned. Readiris is what I use. I have version 11 and I think they are up to 13, but it works GREAT. There probably are other pieces of software out there to handle scanning and result document manipulation. With Readiris, you can make the scanned item directly into a jpeg or a pdf. which is really useful. You might want to try download.com and search there. Good Luck

My lexmark s605 doesn't work, but the pinter and copier are all fine


Plug in usb cable from printer directly to computer then print something. If you're successful, try to print something. If you're on wireless connection, disconnect the usb cord and try to scan.

I have a x6650 series printer and I am trying to scan a document but it keeps telling me that it can't retrieve my application list. However it has already scanned something for me today and...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. If your printer is connected via the USB cable, disconnect it from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and re-plug your printer from the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it your computer. Try to scan again.
If the printer is wirelessly connected to the computer, check the status of the WiFi light. Green light means your printer is connected to your network. Orange means otherwise.

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer


If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
ALTERNATELY
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I can not get a scan started. Msg appears about an error communicating with scanning device. How do I fix that.


Hello. If you are attempting to scan to a wireless printer your problem is solved. Most printers that are sold as wireless printers are wireless only for the print function, not scan. Therefore, you must hook the usb cable between the printer and the computer to scan.

Can not scan to my computer


Hello,

Scanning thru a wireless connection is not supported on these printers. Printing does not require that much data to be sent back to the computer, scanning of course does. Printers require a bi-directional signal path to allow scanning such as USB and parallel ports. Sorry to be the barer of bad news.

Can't scan to computer


I am not an expert, only a c7280 user. I use my printer wirelessly and was having problem scanning when using the controls directly on the printer (scan menu). By trial and error, I tried scanning by going to HP solution center on my computer and just followed the directions from the scan menu. That worked. If you can print wirelessly, you can scan wirelessly. I agree the HP support is a huge waste of time. I only get mad talking to them.
