1) Make sure that you have the HP driver and full-software installed. Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=441240& , select your OS and click Next. Then click on Driver to download it. If you installed the generic driver from the OS, uninstall it and unplug the data cable (if USB) before installing. For some of OS versions, even if you do have the full software, check the version you have, some need to be patched. All of the support for this all-in-one is available here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=441240 .

2) Place the document to scan face down on the glass or face up in a Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).

Next you can scan from the computer before you can scan using the buttons on the printer. If you want to use the scan buttons, you will need the full software installed and the monitor program running. Then you need to set the button destinations in the HP Solution Center before the buttons will work. Launch the HP software (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Solution Center (some HP printers have a slightly different program but it will be in the same HP folder). Launch the scan and set the resolution and destination folders. Windows computers can also scan from the computer with Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera) or Windows Fax and Scan (Vista and Win7).

If you have problems, check the USB cable first. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer. Thus they fail when the printer works. Make sure that the scanner is unlocked if a lock exists.

I hope this helps.

1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on the printer.
2 Double click the "HP Photo Imaging Director" icon on your desktop ( placed there when your
printer was installed on your computer ). A menu screen will appear showing the scanning
options of the printer.
3 Place your document or photo on the printer's glass top and close the lid.
4 From the menu screen, click on " Scan Picture " or " Scan Document "
When "Scan Document" is selected, a secondary screen will appear from which you will have to
make choices. After making your decisions, click "Scan" from the listed screen.
When "Scan Picture" is selected, one scanning pass will be performed, another pass will be
made after you view the result of the first pass.
Scanned pictures will go to the HP Photo Gallery and your "My Picture" folder.
Scanned documents will go to your "My Documents" folder.
Good Luck with your scanning operations!!

Unable to print or scan with HP Photosmart 2575 to new Vista


That means that the printer software installation is corrupted.

You need to reinstall the drivers for this printer.

If you have original printer disk, use the disk to reinstall the printer.

If you have misplaced the disk, then you can download driver from link below:

HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One Printer

Run installer file after download has finished.

Start driver installation with printer USNB unplugged, the printer setup wizard will tell you when to connect the printer to computer.

Set the printer as default when asked.

Scanning


My Photosmart 2575 v has worked fine as well for over a year and now it won't scan. I get the same message: "Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot". I ran all updates and they said I have them all and everything is working perfectly. It's not though. I still can't scan. I tried their work-around by opening paint and then acquring image from the scanner but that does not work either.
