    The instruction manual only describes methods for scans and prints, in my opinion.



    I can't find any description on scanning and saving documents on my computer in order to send them on e-mail attachments.

    i cannot saved scanned images to my machine. maybe it's due to the connection being made via network, vs. USB but i doubt it.

    please help.

You need to have the full photosmart software loaded on the computer and to use this to scan to computer rather than using the buttons on the printer. This is a workaround rather than a fix but it should work

Can i use the machine hp c5180 to scan document even if no ink?


Ria,

Please understand that the scanner and the printer have no connection. So, even if the printer is dead you can still scan. Yes, you will have problems when you want to print the scanned copy.

Won't scan, says usb cord not connected, but it is.


Hello,
The fact that the printer wont recognize that your USB cable is connected when scanning can be caused by multiple factors.
The first is that the scanner is not installed, please check on your computer in Control Panel / Scanners and cameras to see if it is installed.
If it is, also make sure the software that came with your HP scanner is installed and running.
If this still does not work, try scanning from your computer, if that fails you need to reinstall the drivers and software.
Thanks,
Pat

You would need to download the software for your printer again and then install it on your computer. You can download it from here. Once it is installed, look for the scanner icon or HP Director which would have scanner icon.

SCANNER does NOT respond.


You need to have scanning software installed as well, when you press scan a program should open on your computer to accept the scans. Check in control panel then scanners and faxes and see if the scanner is there.
