Scanning depends on a few things (OS, drivers). Did you install the full-featured software or the generic driver from the OS? (See the HP support site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=90764& for drivers/software.) If you have installed the generic driver and a full software package is available, uninstall the driver, unplug the all-in-one from the computer and install the full software. Then reconnect the data cable.

Place the document to be scanned face down on the glass. (Document feeders need the document face up with the top edge entering the feed first.)

Depending on the setup, you can launch the software from your computer. Double-click on the icon on the desktop or (in Windows) Start > All Programs > HP folder and then click on the HP Director. (Once this software is set up for the scan destinations, if the monitor program is running, you'll be able to press the scanner button on the all-in-one to launch the scan. This is under Settings) Once the program is running, click Scan Picture or Scan Document depending on the item to be scanned. Adjust resolution and other settings as needed - try the default first. Click Scan. If doing a preview scan then click Accept when satisfied with the settings.

If you do not have the full software available for your OS or simply do not want to use that software, you have some alternatives. Windows XP, Vista and 7 all can acquire scans in Paint. (Open the program, then File > From Scanner or Camera) Some versions of Vista and Win7 included Windows Fax and Scan which also acquires the scans (just click New scan). Vista has another program that can acquire scans (Photo Gallery IIRC). Macs may have similar software available. In both cases, third-party software is also available.

If your computer doesn't see the scanner, check the cables. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer so a cable that allows printing can be a problem with the scanner. Try a new cable or plugging in to a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

I can print from my mac using HP psc 1210 all in one printer but can not seem to find any scanning facilty? and pressing the scan button on the machine does nothing!


My PSC's that interface to PC's have an HP Director software that responds to the scan button.

Does a MAC do the same thing? It's not automatic.

Scanner hp psc 1210 all in one printer


Hi there.

As there is no full featured software available of PSC 1210 All-In-One for Windows Vista, we cannot scan from the All-In-One itself.

However, we may utilize the scanning functionality with the Microsoft Paint and Windows Photo Gallery on the computer.

I am providing you a weblink which would help in scanning with above mentioned programs.

Here is the weblink:

Hope this information would be helpful.

With regards,

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. :(

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 .
