    I have had my HP Office Jet L7780 for 5 months and knew not to install the software from the box, but to download from the HP website due to technical difficulties. However, all of the sudden my scanner is not recognized so I uninstalled and reinstalled the software. The printer does not show up under my Printer Folder and the HP Solution Center will not load because it says No HP Device found. I have done everything...must have reinstalled 25 times already and wasted four hours on the phone talking to tech in India from HP who just had me going around in the same circles. Found a website that had 12 pages of people relating the same problems I have. Seems there is a glitch in their programming of syncing between HP and Windows. What a mess. They should fix it by now. Since it once worked, I am thinking that they have put a different download on the website from what I originally used??? I'm over it! I bought a two year extended warranty through Best Buy so I'm going to try to take it back.

I also had problem getting a complete install of the software. It is installed now though. I talked to the tech guys and and made it plain that i did not plug in the USB right off the bat. They had me 1st uninstall ALL of the old HP printer and scanner products. Then I had to empty all of the stuff in the temp files that I could. Then we looked at the fact that I was using Internet Explorer 8, which I had to remove. Removing that proved to be only half done though until the pc just happened to do an automatic update when I was taking a well deserved break after 8 hours of working on the issue. Problem solved though......the software is installed completely. bjmoore

    I thought I should add that the error I got was something like the following: hpzopt01.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the on and so on.



I spent 24 hours with tech support for this same printer. The printer will not set up by the book, the level 2 techs have tech bulletin that they will give you the proper set up and installation process. The problem is convincing the lower level techs that there is a tech bulletin out there.

Can't you just uninstall all hp software. Eventually do a system restore to a date before you installed drivers. And then installing back your software.
If this does not work you may need to reinstall windows.
At least this is what I would do in my shop.

If it does not work, it means there is an additional problem apart software setup unsuccessful (eg. bad usb cable etc.)

Ah yes, before doing all this do an hard reset (disconnect power cable 20 mins), usb suffer problems from electrostatic charges.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One keeps giving me the error message - Scanner failure - Turn power off then on. Turning power off then on, even disconnecting power cord, repeatedly does not solve problem.

Our HP Officejet L7780 displays the "Align Printer" message and then does it automatically wasting several sheets of paper aligning, then the next time we print a page the same message comes back. Is there a way to turn off the "align Printer" message. It is printing ok otherwise.
