    Just bought this HP C5580 All in One, Copy, Scan, Print AND a new Dell XPS. Same issue, fresh out of the box the scan portion will not work for some reason. My HP says, initiate from the PC, problem is, there is no where to initiate it from. The provided software only helps with photos, no scanning stuff to be found, Reinstalled still no good. WTF?

Me too. What I just did, was open up word and then pressed scan. That worked, so maybe open the place you want the scanned item to go to and it will go there. You can tell I'm not a techie.

Follow these steps on how to scan from the Lexmark X2670 printer using the operator panel. 1. Open the top cover, and then load an original document facedown on the scanner glass.

2. Close the top cover to avoid dark edges on the scanned image. 3. Make sure that the printer is connected to a computer, and that both the printer and the computer are on. 4. From the printer control panel, press printmastert_51.jpg 5. If you are using a Macintosh operating system, click on the document or image preview and drag to select the part that you want to scan, and then click Scan from the Scan dialog on the computer screen. 6.

Scanning with [Start] on the Machine
By pressing [SCAN] [Start] on the operation panel of the machine, you can scan
documents to your computer.
Pressing [SCAN] [Start] has the same effect as clicking [Save] in the MF Toolbox.
You can change the settings for [Save], or set up a button other than [Save] to
perform the same operation. (See “Setting the Scanning Function for [Start],” on p.
3-3.)
NOTE
You can use the machine for only a local scanner (connected directly to your computer).
1 Place the document face-down on the platen glass or load it
face-up in the ADF
2 Press [SCAN] [Start] on the machine.
If you are asked to select a program to launch, select “MF Toolbox Ver4.7.”
Scanning starts.
The MF Toolbox and the [Save] dialog box will open, but the document will be
scanned without pressing [Start] in the [Save] dialog box.
The scanned document will be processed according to your settings.
When you use [Start] for the first time, a folder with the scanning date will be created in
the [My Pictures] folder in the [My Documents] folder, and your document will be
saved in this folder. If there is no [My Pictures] folder, the folder with the scanning date
will be created in the [My Documents] folder and your document will be saved in this
folder2 Press [SCAN] [Start] on the machine.
If you are asked to select a program to launch, select “MF Toolbox Ver4.7.”

I am out of ink cartridges (none in the printer) but I just want to scan something...how can I do this?


You can still scan using either the command menu on the scanner or the HP software from you computer. As long as you are not trying to print, having no ink should not effect the scanning.
If you have the HP solution center software, you can open that application and pick scan a document or scan a picture.
From the PSC 1610v controls follow these directions:

Scan to an application

You can scan originals placed on the glass directly from the control panel.

1. Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.

User Guide 59

Use the scan features

2. In the Scan area, press Scan To.

The Scan To menu appears. The Scan To menu lists destinations, including

applications, for anything you scan. The default destination is the one you

selected the last time you used this menu.

The Scan To menu can be configured. You can designate which applications and

other destinations appear on the Scan To menu by using the HP Image Zone

software on your computer.

3. To select an application to receive the scan, press until the destination you

want appears on the control panel display, and then press Start Scan.

A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Scan window on the computer,

where you can edit it.

For more information about editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image

Zone Help that came with your software.

4. Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have

finished, click Accept.

For more information on editing a scan in the HP Scan window, see the onscreen

HP Image Zone Help.

The HP All-in-One sends the scan to the selected application. For example, if you
chose the HP Image Zone, it automatically opens and displays the image.

If you don't have the HP solution center, you can download it from this link:

Scanning to computer


I had the same problem until I set up the various choices using the HP software on the computer. It then saves Scan to Computer as "x" file (your choice). Save your settings in the HP Solutions Setup Center. Then, when you check your printer, they will all be there as choices when you select Scan button.
