Question about HP Officejet Pro L7580 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Solution Center reinstalls itself on every reboot.

The software for this printer re-installs itself almost every time I reboot my computer. I have to walk through the install wizard each time. I lose all of my scanning, printer and fax settings. (The CD is not in the drive) Using Windows Vista.

This is the second computer (Windows Vista) that I have seen this behavior on.

We experience this issue if the drivers are not isnatlled properly. Once remove the USB cable from the computer if the all-in-one connected using USB and if it is network then no need to remove the ethernet cable. Now insert the CD in the computer and click on add a device option and follow the onscreen instaructions, in the miidle it will prompt to connect the USB cable then connect the USB cable and complete the process. This will resolve the issue.

HP Solution Center hasn't appeared on my laptop


Hi, If you have downloaded the software for your printer from its manufacturer's website, then its okay, otherwise I will recommend you to download the drive once again from the link provided below.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=hk&lang=en&product=3964424&
Once you have the required software, run it once again because we need to remove the installed printer along with all its associated software from computer. So follow the HP setup wizard and uninstall the printer and restart the computer as asked at the end of the uninstallation process. Now when your computer is up and running, keep your computer detached from your computer and run the installation process once again with the downloaded HP software. Follow the wizard once again and install entire software. This time you will be able to use the HP Solution Center. The essence of the whole story is that HP software must be uninstalled and reinstalled using its own software otherwise there are chances when some of the key feature will now work.
Alternatively you can open mspaint.exe (Paintbrush) on your computer and click on File -> Scanner and camera -> select your printer and scanner model from the list and scan the document using it. You can then save the scanned image from the Paintbrush as well.
Cheers!

HP L7680 All in one will not send faxes from PC S/W interface


After much thrashing, here is the solution to the problem. Somehow the printer drivers lost coordination with the corresponding Windows supporting programs. You would think that reinstalling the printer drivers would fix the problem, AND IT DOES, but there are 3 tricks:

· Uninstall everything associated with this printer with the install disk in the computer (this may really not be necessary, but it worked for me). [This is also the solution when the a window comes up asking for TrayApp to be inserted using a disk—they mean the hp install disk].

· After the un-install, MAKE SURE you ALSO delete the printer using the control panel. This is critical. If this doesn’t happen, the corresponding Windows software is somehow hooked to the wrong thing when the reinstall happens. Then reboot the system.

· Install the new drivers with the printer off, and the USB disconnected from the printer. Reboot the system [not sure the reboot is necessary]. After the computer has booted, connect the USB, and power up the printer. The computer will recognize the printer and put the printer icon in the Control Panel.

It turns out that correcting the driver mis-coordination by BOTH uninstalling the printer drivers and taking the printer out of the control panel, then properly reinstalling solves BOTH the fax problem, and the protection fault problem! Amazing such a little thing can make such a difference!

The printer will not scann to the computer


Are you able to print? I suspect so. If not your probably looking at a bad cable or corrupt windows drivers.

The director software uses it's own system to talk to the printer via scan / fax though printing is controlled by windows itself. Since scan and fax are the same function to the printer, essentially i would start by re-installing the director software.

1. Remove it via add/remove programs, don't reinstall over. It may work but you'll likely just waste time, you want all it's files gone and replaced with new ones.

2. If that has no effect remove the printer from Control Panel > Printers. Also remove the scanner device from Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager >

3. Reboot, windows doesn't really remove things till you shut it off.

4. Install the director software again, hook up the printer when asked.

Again:

If you can print at all communciation with the device is perfectly fine from a hardware perspective.

If you can fax without the computer then your scanner and such is fine from a hardwware perspective.

So your problem is simple software, either windows devices install or hp director. Both simple to remove and re-input.

It's very
