Scarlet, I have a mid 2007 iMac and find that the MX310 does not always behave with OS X Leopard. To scan via software. Turn on the printer. Select SCAN from the printer. Press either PRINT (Black or Color) buttons on the printer. A fax - scan icon will appear in the dock and a window will open allowing you to fax. Now comes the problem. Often it will not scan the first time, I almost always get the message ¨SCAN FAILED¨ the first time I scan. Just click scan again without touching the printer will usually work. Sometimes I have to play with the settings on the left side of the scan window, switching between duplex and simplex or B & W and color and back. Usually this frees up what ever is stuck. Once it works, it works! After the scan, quit the scan and save to either a PDF or one of the photo file types (JPEG, TIFF, etc.) The results wind up in the PICTURES folder under the name of the printer and then the current date.

When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?


You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

Hope that helps!

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Problem scanning pictures


Check your documents folder under My Scans. I found that my scans were going in there. I had to open them to put them where I wanted them.

I also have the problem of the missing line up upload to my computer. If I restart the computer with the 6280 on the line reappears and I can scan what I want. I have asked HP what the problem is with no real solution. They seemed to think that since it works after restarting the computer that the problem was solved. The option shouldn't disappear from the screen at any time, but I guess I'm stuck with restarting the computer every time the problem comes up. Hope this helps.

Scanning


I guess the first thing we have to do is download and install scanning software and drivers for your printer on to your ibook.

Go to HP web and do so, if you still have trouble let us know
here is a link for your printer and mac/windows systems
