    I'm having the same problem since I reinstalled windows. It used to work perfectly, so I know it can work with my setup.
    I noticed that the 3380 is bringing up the My Scans window to another profile on Windows XP. I logged off that other profile hoping that with no other profiles logged in, the scanner would show up on my profile, but I had no luck. I can still go into my start menu and click on Scan in the Hewlett Packard folder and it will bring up the My Scans window and still work fine so it's not the end of the world, but it's a bit silly that pressing the Scan button on my 3380 doesn't work properly.

HP Laser Jet 3055 is showing scanner error 6 and Comm. error 386, 232, & 388


This is due to a hardware failure, the scanner assembly and the formatter board will need to be replaced.

NVRAM INIT
1. Turn off the all-in-one
2. Press and hold down the * and enter buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it. storage init. appears, and then release the buttons.

if this does not work contact hp 1800-334-5144.

I just installed a (new out of the box) HP LaserJet 3380 All-In-One printer/fax/scanner. I have NOT set up the fax function (no telephone line available). The unit is connected to my computer with a USB...


WHen you open the scan application and get to the point just before you scan... open at the top menu "File" and request to "Save As" and give it the "Name.BMP" see if that helps..
You named the folder but you did not mention naming the file you want to save????

HP 7590 office jet pro scanner does not communicate


Hello,

The scanner function is not available when you are connected wireless, you must be connected via USB to your PC for the scanner to function correctly.

HP Photosmart 3110 All-in-one - Scanner function not working


Scanning requires two-way communication between the computer and the scanner. Usually the error that you describe above indicates an issue with the USB connection. First, make sure that you are not using a USB hub. Try a new USB 2.0 (A-B) cable that is under 6' long. Try using a different USB port on the computer.

If the problem persists, check the Device Manager to see if you have a USB driver problem. (For most versions of Windows, press the Windows key + X to quickly access the menu with the Device Manager.) Expand the section labeled Universal Serial Bus controllers and look for an exclamation point or an X. Similarly check for any issues in the Devices and Printers section of the Control Panel. The All-in-One should be listed as a printer and a scanner.

I hope this helps. If you are still having problems, please add a comment with the OS version on your computer. That can help identify additional issues that could be involved.

Scanner problem


Hi s2009edwards, double check the USB data cable from the printer to the computer. Power off the printer. Than, unplug the data cable connected to the printer & re-connect it. Follow the data cable to the PC & unplug the cable & re-connect it. Power on the printer & wait until its done making noise. Try scanning again. If it fails to complete & you receive the same error message than buy a new printer data USB cable & replace the old one.

If the HP director software is installed (Which it should be).
You can open HP printer software there should be an HP icon down by the clock. Right click on it once & left click open or launch. If you did not install your HP printer software suggest you do so.

Good luck!

Scanner Directions


Scanner utility is pretty much come with the software. You can input the paper like you input for fax, either on the top scanner or the scanner itself and then just press scan on your printer. It will automatically scan to your computer. Please make sure your computer is connected to the printer.

HP LASERJET 3050 SCANNER: ERROR (not set up on pc).


Shirley,

If your still looking for a solution, or to those of you who have a similar problem, the following fixed my problem after trying to resolve the issue over the last year!!!!

I also received the "not set up on pc" message and tried re-installing the software numerous times.

Finally resorted to re-installing windows XP (because of this and other software glitches) and re-installed the Laserjet 3050 software again...but could not get the printer to install.

The problem was occuring while the software was asking to "plug in the usb cable", but would not complete the installation. It was not recognizing the device....the solution was to reset the laserjet 3050!!!!

to reset, push the "menu" button, < (left arrow), go to "service", "enter" button, > (right arrow), "Restore Defaults", "enter" button.
This should reset the factory defaults.

After this, I re-installed software, working!!!!!
