Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

ADD A DEVICE????

I have an old scanner that no longer works so I have added an HP 6210 but can't seem to "add the device" when I use the HP Director to scan.

It sees my main printer and still lists the old all in one scanner but doesn't recognize the new HP model.

I can successfully scan "thru the back door" manually with the 6210 but would really like to use the Director and sacan it that way as a recognized device.

Remove the old and reinstall the new. First go to Control Panel/Add Remove Programs and remove the old software package. HP has a software cleaning utility to *really* remove all the old driver files. i suggest you run through that utility, Then install the new drivers/software for the new device.

My HP Director says it is not connected to the computer BUT the Image software all works properlyand the scanner is fine. What is the problem please. If possible the solution too. Thanks


The problem is that your HP Director software needs to be reinstalled? Run the setup program and when the splash screen comes up, choose the option that says "Add another device"

HP 9110 all in one's scanner will not work


I have a 9110 and a laptop running Windows XP and Internet Explorer 7. Prior to upgrading the IE from 6 to 7, I was able to run the HP Director and fax, scan, whatever from the laptop. After upgrading to IE 7, HP Director quit working. I contacted both Microsoft and HP and they pointed fingers at each other and said yes, upgrading to IE 7 broke the HP Director. Both said fixes were being developed, but that was months ago and I have not heard of any fixes.
I did find a workaround that allowed me to scan documents to the PC (faxing worked fine manually). Assuming the 9110 all-on-one’s drivers are still on the PC, and that the PC is connected to the 9110, go to “start, settings, control panel” and once in control panel, select “scanners and cameras”. If the drivers are still there, you should see the HP 9110 under “device”. Highlight the HP 9110 and double click. A wizard should start and it will guide you through the scanning process. If the 9110 does not appear in the “scanners and camera” box, you will need your 9110 CD and click on “add an imaging device”, which will start another wizard. It’s not as easy as using HP Director, but at least I can use the scanner. Hope this works for you.

The printer will not scann to the computer


Are you able to print? I suspect so. If not your probably looking at a bad cable or corrupt windows drivers.

The director software uses it's own system to talk to the printer via scan / fax though printing is controlled by windows itself. Since scan and fax are the same function to the printer, essentially i would start by re-installing the director software.

1. Remove it via add/remove programs, don't reinstall over. It may work but you'll likely just waste time, you want all it's files gone and replaced with new ones.

2. If that has no effect remove the printer from Control Panel > Printers. Also remove the scanner device from Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager >

3. Reboot, windows doesn't really remove things till you shut it off.

4. Install the director software again, hook up the printer when asked.

Again:

If you can print at all communciation with the device is perfectly fine from a hardware perspective.

If you can fax without the computer then your scanner and such is fine from a hardwware perspective.

So your problem is simple software, either windows devices install or hp director. Both simple to remove and re-input.

It's very
