HP F340 Scanner Will Not Scan

The copier and the printer work just fine, but when trying to scan, the two warning lights near the power button, as well as the power light flashes. Nothing else occurs. There is neither a shortage of ink nor a paper problem.

I have an HP DeskJet F4440. When I press the scan button, the green light flashes then the yellow light but nothing happens.

The yellow flashing light means there is a problem with the feature you're trying to use. If you're trying to scan, it could be that there is not a destination program set up to scan to. You can try using the software to scan instead of the scanner itself to make sure it's not a hardware problem. If you installed the HP software included with the all in one, there should be a troubleshooter you can use to help diagnose the problem as well.

I cannot get my F340 to scan. When i push the

Are you using Vista? I know that the Scan button doesn't work with Vista. There's a way around it though (if Vista is the problem.) Click the Windows Vista icon, click All Programs, and then click Windows Photo Gallery (mine was in a subfolder.) Click File, and then click Import From Camera or Scanner. Click Import, and then click Scan. There is also a similar way to scan with the Paint program.

I have an F340 HP all-in -one and the work arouind for me is to go into paint program and click "FILE" scroll down to from "SCANNER/CAMERA" and click scanner then save file.Windows Vista does NOT recognise the scan button on the actual printer ..I got this from the HP website cause I had same issue -- perhaps this will work you ..If not try going to their software support...enter your product and see if they have solution available for your printer model if this doesn't work for you....
