Question about HP Scanjet 4370

1 Answer

Hp scanjet will not copy to print

When attempting to copy anything I get the message "must have a printer setup to do a copy. Go to control panel and install a printer [1211]." I have two working printers installed already. Scanning a document to the printer works but the printing time is terribly slow. I have reset the scanner by unpluging the power for 60 seconds, reinstalled the software.
I posted this info on another thread to answer "reply if you have the same problem" but the posted result indicates I have a solution to the problem. NOT.

    I have the same problem that has been described about the copy not working. However I have problems with the suggested solution. First I cannot click start and find my Printer. I have to go to the control panel to locate the printer. Secondly when I right click the default printer on the general tab I get no response., therefore no copy button to click My journey ends there. Are there some steps missing in the solution?

Cancel double sided copying


Slide the DUPLEX switch to the one sided mode on the ADF.

Also you should be able to set the single and dula sided mode from your scanning application in the setup tab.

HP Solutions Center can not communicate with HP 3500c Scanner


Had exact same problem. Went to HP site and they said to check "add or remove programs" functions (in control panel) and if there are multiple copies of HP software to download their fix. I checked, had multiple copies, downloaded patch and all worked well again.

HP ScanJet 2100C


I had a similar problem when I upgraded to Vista. Try running setup.exe from within the software CD ( in the english folder I think) rather than using the autorun.
