HP Photosmart C6380 says scan from computer?


This means you should open the HP software, whatever your version is called, and start the scan from your desktop instead of pushing buttons on the printer console.
Go to Start>All Programs>HP Solution Center.
See also articles here.
If you don't have the HP software installed, and you're using vista, see here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
