Scan an image
You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.
This section explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only.
To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on.
The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
● On a Mac, the software is always running.
Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.
To scan to a computer
1. Place your original print side down on the left front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan.
A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it.
3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.
To stop scanning ➔ Press Cancel on the control panel.
If this doesn't work for some reason you should also be able to scan using windows camera and scanning wizard, the link will show you how if you have XP, just scroll down past the "how to print" section.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/hwandprograms/printfaxscan.mspx
or this if you have Vista:
If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.
If this is the case then you can download a free program called IrfanView from there site: http://www.irfanview.com/
Click the Start icon. Click All Programs .
Click Windows Photo Gallery .
Click File and then click Import From Scanner or Camera .
Click Import .
Click Scan .

If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.
If this is the case then you can download a free program called IrfanView from there site: http://www.irfanview.com/
I hope that helps..
Regards

I cannot use my HP Deaskjet F380 to scan although it is a [rinter/scanner combined


First of all make sure that when you open my computer, you are able to see the name of the scanner which means that the scanner was installed properly. If you dont se it, then just go on google and type www.hp.com. On this site you will be required tn provide the specifications of your printer and the operating system that you are using. Then you can choose the scanner drivers for your printer and download them. When you are done, double-click on the driver and follow the instructions on the screen to install it. Restart your computer and check in My computer if you are now able to see the scanner

How do i scan using a HP desktop F380


Deskjet F380 features a scanner within the upper portion of the device. "Scanning" an item describes the electronic process of converting pictures or text to data, then transferring that data to the computer as an image. Scanning an item into the computer is a simple task with the F380, the only limitation is the size of the item,
follow the steps below
Step 1
Turn the unit on by pressing the "On" button located at the top control panel. The control panel is located on the left side of the unit. The "On" button will illuminate to indicate that the unit is receiving power.
  • Step 2 Load the scanner with the item to be scanned. First, lift the lid of the F380 to the upright position to reveal the scanning surface. Place the item to be scanned face down onto the scanning surface. Position the item so that the edge of the item rests squarely against the front left-hand corner of the scanning surface, then close the unit's lid.
  • Step 3 Press the "Scan" button located at the lower left-hand corner of the F350's control panel to start the scan. If necessary, the scanning process can be stopped by pressing the "Cancel" button located just to the left of the "X" on the control panel.
  • Step 4 Save the scanned image to the computer when the scan is complete by clicking the "Accept" button on the window that appears on the computer's monitor.

    Have a hp f380 all in one deskjet printer with M/S Vista OS


    Hi,

    Ofcourse, if there is any software or patch, there will be free on the HP website. However, as you have mentioned, that you are able to print, that shows that the printing software is working fine, to test the scanning part, please confirm that you are able to make a copy or not from the front panel of the printer by placing a text document on the scanner bed, close the scanner lid and then press color copy. If you are able to make a copy fine, that shows that the printer functionality is working fine.

    The issue could be with the communication or with the scanning software. To check the communication between the printer and the computer, perform the following steps on the Windows XP computer or Vista computer, be sure that the printer should be connected directly to the computer via USB cable at the back side of the tower without any USB HUB, as you are using a Deksjet F380, it is a USB connectivity printer.

    XP:
    Follow the below steps to Scan using WIA (Windows Image acquisition)

    1.Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.
    2.Click Start then Click All Programs then Click Accessories then Click Scanner and Camera Wizard.
    3.Follow the Scanner and Camera Wizard instructions to scan images to the computer.

    Vista:
    1. Press Windows logo and R on the keyboard*.
    It will open a small run dialog box at the bottom left corner of the screen.
    2. In the Run box type WIAACMGR and press enter.
    3. Follow the onscreen insturctions and complete the scanning.

    If you are able to scan fine using the above steps, then it shows that there is a communnication between the printer and the computer.

    Please get back to me with the exact error message you are receiving when you try to scan from the computer, as to scan from the printer you should be able to scan fine from the computer (i.e., From HP Solution Center/ HP Director). So that I can assist you in much better way.


    With Regards.
    Mike.

    HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One Compatible with vista


    I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.

    However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
    good luck

    F380 all-in-one scan problem


    I have this problem w/a different printer adding it to a computer w/OS Vista. Go to Start, All programs, Accessories, Paint and open that program. Click on File and then From Scanner or Camera. Make sure your all in one is turned on. Unfortunely, there is no fix to make the scanner button work if it is not compatable, such as my 'all in one' w/Vista. Hope this helps. Linda

    HP F380 not scanning


    This has happened to me on several occasions with a couple of different HP all-in-one scanner/printer's. The HP driver/program itself may be in a phase where it's attempting to complete a scan, which would prevent you from scanning anything else. You can confirm whether or not this is the problem by restarting your computer and attempting another scan. You'll get an error message saying the scanner is currently in use. You may want to try to completely remove the installation files for the scanner, and reinstall either from the disk or let windows install it for you via "plug and play". Then update the drivers from hp's website. See if that resolves your problem.
