Download the software package from the HP website. You will need the drivers and other software, and you can find installation instructions in manual

How do I scan from j4680 to computer to email? Device says "no scan option" and refers me to non-existent product documentation


What OS do you have? Did you install the HP drivers or a generic driver from the OS? The generic driver only runs the printer features of the all-in-one.

If you need the drivers or full software see: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3692888& . Select your OS and then click Next. On the next page expand the section labeled drivers. If you have the generic driver installed, uninstall the all-in-one and then remove the data cable (USB). Reboot and then install the HP software. Diagnost tools are available from the above site as well.

Next make sure that the cable is good and the unit is directly connected to the computer by a cable that is 6' or less in length. Scanning requires bi-directional communication and can fail when the printer works. (Replacing the cable is a simple thing to try.)

If you have the full HP software installed, you need to set up the destination buttons in the software before the buttons on the unit will work. Scan from the Solution Center on your computer a few times to find the best defaults to include in the settings. Click Settings then Scan Settings. In the section Scan To Setup, Add destinations the click Update the Device. The scan buttons on the unit will not work and launch the Solution Center unless the full software is installed and a monitoring program is running on the computer. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02450835&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3692888#N81 to set up the program for your OS.

If you have the basic driver installed, you can scan from the computer. Windows XP, Vista and 7 have built-in programs that can acquire scans. Paint is on all three systems (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Windows Vista and 7 add Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista includes Photo Gallery (it is available as an optional download for XP or 7).

I hope this helps.

I have a Mac w/Snow Leopard. I cannot get to hp.com\support to download drivers for an Office Jet 7780. The Mac recognizes it as a printer but not as a scanner.


As from this link , the drivers for most HP printers are already built-in to Snow Leopard. Thus, they didn't recommend reinstalling driver from your HP printer CD. Here are some excerpts regarding scanning feature on Snow Leopard from the link: Scanning: The Scanning interface is now built into Snow Leopard and supported with the Apple Image Capture application. Instructions follow. NOTE: HP Scan Pro software (from Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5) is not supported in Snow Leopard. The HP icon for HP Device Manager still in the dock after upgrade is not functional and should be removed. NOTE: Scan support from pushing the Scan button on the printer is not supported with this version of the scan interface built into Snow Leopard. Scan functionality is supported by scanning directly from the computer.
** there are methods on how you can scan on Snow Leopard from the link that I've given above. But I'll paste here Method 3:

Method three: Scan from Print & Fax > Printer browser
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences .
  2. Click Print & Fax .
  3. In the list of printers on the left side of the dialog, select the HP All-in-One to view the options in the Print & Fax window.
  4. Click the Scan tab, and then click Open Scanner . The Printer Browser window appears.
  5. Click the Scan icon at top right of the toolbar to launch scanning. The scan interface opens. Click Show Details to view settings and options.
Important Gotcha: If the Scan or Print icons do not appear in the Printer Browser window toolbar, you need to delete the current HP printer queue and add a new one, as follows:
  1. Close the Printer Browser window to return to the Print & Fax preference pane. Or, go directly to the System Preferences > Print & Fax pane.
  2. Select your HP printer in the list on the left.
  3. Click the - sign at the bottom of the list to delete the product from the list.
  4. Click the + sign at the bottom of the list to add the product back to the list.
  5. Select your HP printer, and then click Add to create a new print queue. The next time you open thePrinter Browser window, the Print and Scan icons should appear in the toolbar, providing access to Image Capture.

Software disk for hp office Jet k60


This printer is supported in Mac OSX. All you need to do is plug it in, and Add the Printer in System Preferences. The driver is an open source driver called Gutenprint. It is already installed on your computer, so the Add Printer should find the drivers nessesary by itself.

HP scanjet 3500c wont open with MAC OS 10.5.5


http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15999
I have a Mac running OS X 10.5.5. dan123 answered my hp3500c problem with the above link. I downloaded the dmg file and installed the hp environment and it works. I was not, however, able to use the Photoshop plugin in Photoshop Elements 6. I can use the hp GUI and name Photoshop Elements as the output. I performs the scan and then opens it in Photoshop.

No scan options- HP Office jet 5610v


Ok - the reason this error pops up is because there is a software issue going on. If the software is correctly installed you will see options for where the scan will go in the computer.

Having said that there are several things that can cause a problem between the printer and the software;

1) You are connecting the printer by USB to router - you may print but will never be able to scan as this is not a networkable printer. Connect it directly to your computer and recomplete the setup portion to configure the scanner.

2) You have not finished the setup. At the end of the installer you can setup the scanner but if you skipped this step you will have to redo it in order for it to connect. Click on the device manager in your dock and then next to information and settings there will be a little wheel. Click on the wheel and go to setup assistant. Complete the assistant and try to scan.

3) The printer is not grabbing the new software options - leave the printer turned on but unplug the power cord and wait for 30 seconds. Plug printer back in - when you do this it should initialize and will look to the mac for changes and the options should load.

4) Software missing - You MUST have the software for the printer installed for scanning function. Adobe and other programs cannot replace it - it has to be installed.

5) Software is corrupted. Uninstall the software (uninstaller is under applications in the HP folder) and then download and install the most recent full feature software and drivers for your operating system.

6) If all these steps fail you may have an issue with your computer and it's TWAIN drivers.
