Question about HP Deskjet F2180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Is it connected by a USB cable? Try a new data cable and swapping ports. If you have it connected to a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and are more likely to fail to respond to a problem that blocks the signal than the printer. Does the scanner light move and make the usual warm up sounds? Do you have the full software installed or a basic driver from the OS? Do you have the latest software installed?
Disconnect the power cord from both the unit and the wall outlet and the USB cable from both the computer and the printer. Wait at least 10 seconds before reconnecting (resets the all-in-one). Repeat the USB cable removal with the computer and the printer on. Reboot the computer (in case something is locking the scanner in memory).
Check if the scanner shows up as an imaging device. Click My Computer (in some versions of windows), Properties. Click the Device Manager tab. Open Imaging Device. Highlight the all-in-one and click Remove. Try scanning again. (This can be found through the control panel on other versions of Windows.)
I hope this helps.
