First what OS are you using? Do you have the full software installed, the basic HP driver or the OS-based driver? The first time you scan, you will need to start the scan from the computer. Put your document face down on the scanner glass or face up if you have an automatic document feeder. Launch the HP Solution Center (in Windows), and then click Scan Photo or Scan Document. If you need to adjust the settings, cancel the scan and click Settings. Then click Scan Settings.

If you have the full software installed, you can set up the software to "listen" for the button presses and launch the software to scan. Use the first scan to give you your defaults to enter into the Button settings. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings and then Scan Settings. Then click Button Settings and then the Front Panel Buttons tab.

If you have the OS-based driver installed or the basic HP driver, with Windows 7, you can use Windows Fax and Scan.

The manuals for the HP Deskjet F2480 are available from HP here: . The direct link to the User's Manual for the Windows OS is .Additional Scan instructions are here:, pick the link for your OS.

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 have an HP PSC 2210 all-in-one ink jet printer. I need print driver software so that this printer can be operated on a new Windows 7 64-bit desktop machine.

The drivers for your HP product are already included in the new Windows 7 operating system.
Use the following instructions to install the basic driver in Windows 7, and then review the workaround procedures to use the available features for your product.

ollow these steps to install the basic driver in Windows 7.
  • Turn the product on.
  • Connect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable to the printer, and then to the computer. Figure 1: USB cablec01704933.gif

    NOTE: When you connect the USB cable to the product, and then to the computer, Windows 7 activates Windows Update. Windows Update searches online for the most recent product driver on the Windows Update site. If the online driver is more recent than the driver stored in Windows 7, the computer downloads and installs the updated driver.The Windows Update process takes place automatically. Therefore, you might not notice that the process is in progress.
    A Your devices are ready to use window might display on the screen. If the window displays and does not close automatically, click Close (c01884617.gif ), to close the window.

    The basic driver in Windows 7 is enough for printing from a software program, scanning documents, and importing and viewing images on a memory card. Also, using your All-in-One product, you can fax a printed page.

    NOTE: not all features will be available if you use the basic Windows 7 drivers

    hope this help

    Is there a fix for being able to scan hpj3680

    Hi Melinda,

    Windows7 provides a basic set of scanning drivers, also referred to as Windows Image Aquisition (WIA) drivers, that you can use as an alternative to scan a document when you cannot scan using the HP drivers. You might choose to use these scanning drivers for one of the following reasons:
    • Your product released before Windows7 and HP has not released drivers that support scanning for your product.
    • You have not installed the available HP software that includes scanning.
    • You are troubleshooting a scanning problem and trying to identify the source of the problem.
    ScanningUse one of the following three methods to scan a document. Method one: Scanning with Windows Live Photo GalleryTo scan a document using Windows Live Photo Gallery in Windows7, follow these steps:
    1. Click the Windows icon c01319360.gif , click All Programs , and then click Windows Live Photo Gallery .
    2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .
    3. Click the product you are using to scan, and then click Import .
    4. Make any desired setting changes, and then click Scan .
    Method two: Scanning with PaintTo scan a document using Paint in Windows7, follow these steps:
    1. Click the Windows icon c01319360.gif , click All Programs , click Accessories , and then click Paint .
    2. Click the Paint button (c01886001.gif ), and then click From Camera or Scanner .
