What type of scanner, and what kind of operating system are you using?
try re-installing it...first un-install it (disconnect it from your system, shut down and then re-boot)and also un-install any software that came with it, then re-install it, using the directions that came with it for installation.
let us know what happens then...

When i press the scan button , nothing happens at all ,, please help i need to scan photos


The scan button requires proper setting of the program on the computer that tracks the state of that button.
Reinstall drivers (full installation).
Why not open My Computer, find the icon of the scanner and scan using Microsoft scanner or camera wizard?
You can also open MS Paint and scan using File / From scanner or camera.

How do i scan documents onto my comp


It depends a bit on the software you have installed (OS, etc). If you installed the full-featured software before connecting the all-in-one to your computer, you can scan immediately from the computer. For Windows, open the HP Solution Center (by double-clicking on the icon or Start > All Programs > HP folder > HP Solution Center). Put your document to be scanned face down on the scanner glass and close the lid (ADF pages go face up, top edge first). Click the tab in the Solution Center for your HP product (if you have more than one) and click Scan Picture or Scan Document as appropriate. Set the scanner settings in the pop-up window if needed. Click Scan to start the scan. To use the buttons on the scanner, you need to set the destinations for the buttons in the HP Solution Center (Scan to destination for example) and have the HP monitor running on your computer (this listens to the buttons).

Scanners work with bi-directional communication so USB hubs, print servers or bad cables can result in the printer functions working but not the scanner.

If you install the generic OS driver (by connecting the all in one to the computer before installing the software), the printer will work but the scanner will functions will be limited (the scanner buttons will not work but other functions will depend on the OS). Windows XP can acquire scans in Paint (File > From Camera or Scanner). Windows Vista and Win7 add Windows Fax and Scan which will also acquire scans (not in all versions of Vista). Vista also can acquire scans with Windows Photo Gallery.

The printer works similarly with the Mac OS but hte names may be different.

I hope this helps.

HP OJ 6500 with windows7..Scan button on scanner is not working.


Hi,

The reason that you are unable to scan through the printer is, you are missing HP full feature software and driver.

Please download and install it from the below link

I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.


Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.

The start buttons are not working in scan mode. Press them and nothing happens. The other buttons work, such as the two buttons directly below the screen.


Scan from the scanner and camera wizard, the front scan button is useless. Go to My computer, open the scanner icon and scan from there, no need to use the button at all.

Scanner


Try scanning from the image software you are using, not from the front panel buttons. Go to the TWAIN options and make sure your scanner is selected, then go to Acquire and the scanner software will start. Scan from there without using the scanner front panel.
