I have a HP 7520 printer which is connected by wireless to my Apple Mac 21 computer. Can I also connect by cable an elderly Pc operating on Microsoft XP.


I have setup HP printers with both connections with no trouble even though their manual said to disconnect usb after wireless setup. I don't know if this would work with every model. I am including a link to the manual pdf for this model and a link to an HP employee discussing this on a different model. I would just try it.

The problem is caused by you connecting the printer before the software asks you to.

Uninstall all HP software, restart the PC and start again. Do NOT connect the printer until the install prog tells you to.

Base from the description of your problem this is some kind of issue with the software , and according to you already tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

So if you have not done reinstalling using the software from HP site better reinstall the softwrae using that and check if that corrects the issue.

My HP Photosmart C6280 will not scan documents to my computer. I have it connected to USB port on my wireless PC. I try scanning thru solution center and that does not work. I have turned off the computer,...


Solution

For Windows XP

*Go to Control Panel > Printers > HP Photosmart c6200 series > Right Click > select Delete

*Load the CD / Downloaded Software for HP c6200 series

*Select add a device > select usb (if preferred)/ wireless

*Wait for the installation to finished and repair the settings.

*Restart PC/ Try Scanning Again.

If it doesnt work, I suggest try uninstalling and reinstalling the software completely using the CD itself.

Hope this works. Good LUCK!

Scanning


Is the wireless adapter on the printer actually on? Many times there is an indicator light on the printer (the little wireless "beacon") to show it's available. If it's on, and it still isn't visible, try uninstalling the printer, and reinstalling using the USB cable instead (versus the wireless install).

If it does appear, but cannot be seen by your wireless router, you can at least connect directly (called an "ad hoc" connection" from your PC to the printer. Wil be less reliable than throught the router, but at least connected! Try seeing if the adapter is on first...

Hope this helps!

HP photosmart C5580 How scan to computer?


scanning through bluetooth is not possible bluetooth module only pairs the computer and printer and has link only to the basic driver of the computer so you can only print from it
if you want to scan you should connect te usb cable or use a wireless upgrade kit

Hp photosmart c4585 printer won't scan wireless


I had a similar problem, the problem i had was that HP scan Pro just quit on me whenever i opened it up to scan using wireless and usb. so i wen to the help and support website and downloaded the installation software for the printer.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3757825&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&submit.y=0&submit.x=0&lang=en&cc=uk

then uninstalled the HP software i had previously installed and then installed the downloadable software from the link above. then it all seemed to work.
i dont know if it could be a bad batch of software disks that got distributed with the printers or what? but just to let u know, i encountered this issue using Mac OS X i don't know if its the same for other Macs and PCs. Either way i think its a software issue so if in doubt just download all the latest software and drivers etc. from the HP website.
you didn't buy this from PC World recently when they had this printer on offer did you? cos i did, just noticed the date when this was posted. i got mine last week and only just installed it today!

Good Luck

Can my HP Photosmart C4380 support Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Fax and Scan? Or must the HP fax and scan only be used?


Sorry, Fax and Scan is part of Windows Vista not MS Office. I have been advised by PC World team that this printer (HP Photosmart C4380) does not have the necessary drivers to support Vista Fax and Scan wirelessly and can only operate with the HP Fax and Scan which is very basic and only seems to function via USB cable, not wirelessly. Update drivers may become available.
