You say it works with XP, so I assume it doesn't work with Vista? If that's the case you can download the newest Vista drivers HERE.

Hope that helps...

HP Director won't work

What I did to "fix" it was to completely uninstall the printer and reinstall it as if for the first time. Then I had to download new drivers for it. I found that out by checking for updates. The Director icon on my desktop till doesn't seem to do anything but I can now scan by hitting the scan button on the printer. It doesn't work like it used to but I'm just adjusting to the new paths I have to take.

My HP Director will not open, I can not scan from the printer either. It was working fine one day and then just quit. I can still print but not scan. What is the solution?

HP Director simply doesn't open? Check your version of Internet Explorer. If you've recently installed Internet Explorer 7, you will need to download the update on the HP website. Go to, click "Software & Driver Downloads", enter your product, choose your operating system, and there should be an update/patch for Director issues with IE7. Hope this helps.

HP PSC 1210 all-in-one Director does not work with VISTA

I've been fighting the same. Did some hunting on the HP and MS web sites. Found a "work around". Not what I wanted but at least I can scan. I think HP Director is gone for Vista users. :(

Scanning with Windows Photo Gallery
1. Click the Start ( ) icon.
2. Click All Programs .
3. Click Windows Photo Gallery .
4. Click File and then click Import From Scanner or Camera .
5. Click Import .
6. Click Scan .

Scanner/Director problems since installing new ink cartridge

The printer will not scann to the computer

Are you able to print? I suspect so. If not your probably looking at a bad cable or corrupt windows drivers.

The director software uses it's own system to talk to the printer via scan / fax though printing is controlled by windows itself. Since scan and fax are the same function to the printer, essentially i would start by re-installing the director software.

1. Remove it via add/remove programs, don't reinstall over. It may work but you'll likely just waste time, you want all it's files gone and replaced with new ones.

2. If that has no effect remove the printer from Control Panel > Printers. Also remove the scanner device from Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager >

3. Reboot, windows doesn't really remove things till you shut it off.

4. Install the director software again, hook up the printer when asked.


If you can print at all communciation with the device is perfectly fine from a hardware perspective.

If you can fax without the computer then your scanner and such is fine from a hardwware perspective.

So your problem is simple software, either windows devices install or hp director. Both simple to remove and re-input.

It's very

Hp director

It could be about this: I had same problem until I found a review somewhere - even HP technical support was totally useless - until HP FINALLY decided to up date its drivers to account for my/many people's downloading of Internet Explorer 7. As this is now done, and you cannot easily uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6: try again (1) HP Director and if not (2) I think update drivers or (3) uninstall / reinstall. Hope it helps.
