To correct the "An unexpected error....." while scanning, try installing the following update from the hp site. It works for the model hp f380 on vista os. And i bet there is no harm in trying even if you have different a model of the printer. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-69585-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=in&product=1128296&os=2093&lang=en

If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.

  • PML (Printer Management Language)
  • Yellow DOT4 entries
  • Scan Folder
  • Registry Mismatch
  • HP Digital Imaging Monitor
  • Multiple HP Digital Imaging Monitors
If an error condition is identified with any of these items, a red X ( ) appears next to the item. If there is no error condition, a green check mark ( ) is displayed next to the item. The utility is equipped with a Fix button to correct the error conditions.
