Make sure the HP Digital Imaging Monitor is running on your computer (there should be an icon in the system tray and it may be hidden if auto-hide is enabled). You could also open HP Director or HP Solution Center (don't know which one was installed for your printer). You can initiate and control scans through that. There are configuration options there that control how the Scan button works on the printer.
I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.
However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
I have this problem w/a different printer adding it to a computer w/OS Vista. Go to Start, All programs, Accessories, Paint and open that program. Click on File and then From Scanner or Camera. Make sure your all in one is turned on. Unfortunely, there is no fix to make the scanner button work if it is not compatable, such as my 'all in one' w/Vista. Hope this helps. Linda
