    Hi, thanks for the reply, but when I get to the Device Manager window, I can't find the Imaging Devices option or the USB composite device under the Universal Serial BUS controllers option.

I believe that you are trying to scan via HP solution center.
Did u tried scanning from Scanners and Cameras in control panel, and did u notice any lines?

If u get the same lines, we have to remove the USB Composite device and imaging device drivers.

1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.

2.You will get Device manager window popping out.

3.Check for Imaging Devices, click on + sign, then u will see "hp photosmart c3100" right click on it and click Uninstall. Then, Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.


5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

7.Try scanning.Please let me know after following the steps!

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord

Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    Using my F380 all in one, how do I scan to my

    Scan an image
    You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.
    This section explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only.
    To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on.
    The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
    ● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
    Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
    ● On a Mac, the software is always running.
    Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.
    To scan to a computer
    1. Place your original print side down on the left front corner of the glass.
    2. Press Scan.
    A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it.
    3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.
    To stop scanning ➔ Press Cancel on the control panel.
    If this doesn't work for some reason you should also be able to scan using windows camera and scanning wizard, the link will show you how if you have XP, just scroll down past the "how to print" section.
    or this if you have Vista:
    If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.
    If this is the case then you can download a free program called IrfanView from there site:
    Click the Start icon. Click All Programs .
    Click Windows Photo Gallery .
    Click File and then click Import From Scanner or Camera .
    Click Import .
    Click Scan .
