After reviewing the owners manual for this printer I see it is an older model. But not to worry! While most of the time I find the driver database on Windows 7 is considerable, it is sometimes lacking some of the older equipment drivers. In these rare instances, it is possible to simply explore the CD and find the installation file. It should be an EXE or MSI file, sometimes called "setup". It should have the Sharp logo for an icon also. I wish I could be more specific but the contents of each driver CD varies quite a bit.
Anyway, once you locate the location of the installation exe file, right click on it and select properties. Then select compatibility. Next, you want to select "Run this program in compatibility mode for..." and select Windows XP SP 3. You may also want to select "Run as administrator", since it will be interacting with the internal workings of your OS. See graphic below to illustrate what i am talking about.

After getting Windows 7 I can't use the scanner button on my F340 aqll in one and I can't figureout the scanner feature on Windows 7


It sounds like you installed the generic OS driver from Windows 7. This driver only works for the printer. (Alternatively, you do not have the monitor program running or the destinations set in the HP software.)

If you plugged in the data cable before installing the HP software, uninstall the printer (Devices and Printers) then disconnect the data cable (USB). Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1128309& and select your Win7 version (32- or 64-bit). Then click Next. Expand the section marked driver and download the Full Software. Install the software. Connect the data cable when prompted to do so. (Try a new USB cable since scanning requires bi-directional communication with the printer and can fail when the printer works). Avoid using a USB hub or print server.

If you do have the HP software installed, check that the monitor program is running (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Adminstrative Tools > Component Services > Services.) The line for the HP monitor should say started. You may need to download and install the patches or the diagnostic utility from the above site to find a specific problem with the Win7 installation.

Next launch the HP software and attempt to scan from the computer. Next use the settings that give good results to program the defaults for the scan destination buttons. Now try to use the scan buttons on the all-in-one.

Once you have the HP drivers for both the printer and the scanner installed, the Windows 7 Fax and Scan and Paint programs should let you successfully scan from the computer. (New scan for fax and scan. File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan for Paint.)

I hope this helps.

A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

I can't reinstall my Sharp AM-900


Yes that is possible. Did you plugged the usb cable during driver installation ? During driver installation the usb cable must not be plugged. after the installation step asks you plug it in, then you plugged it. If not, the system wont recognized your printer. Be sure to uninstalled the previous installation before you re-install the driver
