Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HPSC1610 all in one

All of a sudden, the scanner won't scan, but the printer and copier function works fine. The error message when scanning says " An error occurred communicating witht he scanning device. Please ensure that the scanning devise is connected properly and try again. Have changed USB port it was plugged into, unplugged it, still get the same message. Can you give me any suggestions? That describes exactly the problem I have; I tried to download new drivers, and even downloaded a patch that was supposed to solve this problem (according to HP), but nothing changed. I am using a HP PSC 1315 All-in-one , it used to scan fine; after uninstalling another software from Kodak, the scanning unit srneds that message (error communicating with the device); copying and printing still work fine

Hi,

Im very sure that you encountered that message when trying to scaning using the HP Director / HP solution center. Here are the steps that i want you to do inorder to solve the issue.

1. Insert the CD that you used to install the Software.
2. The Window for installation will pop-up, CLICK ON UNINSTALL. (note: make sure that you unplug the usb cable from the back of your computer before uninstalling the SOftware).
3. When done, restart your computer.
4. Re-insert the CD and Click on INSTALL.

The reason why you encounter such problem might have something to do with the corrupted components of the Software installed in your pc.

Thank you so much.

My problem begins when I start to scan with my Cannon MP240 printer , the error messages apppear..'Printer is in use or an error has occured. Check Status. Scanner Driver will be closed.' My question is...


scanning has nothing to do with the printing ...so ...in theory it has to scan just fine without ink at all in the printer ...so ..if you have unexpected errors...probably it has something to do with the operating system and the driver ...so ...first remove with the add /remove software ( control panel ) the driver ...and reinstall it clean ..if this would not fix the problem ....you probably have to reinstall the operating system as well cause it has issues that interfere with the accurate function of the scanner /printer

Scan function not working


I have had issues with HP scanners myself. The way I deal with this is to use the scanner and camera wizard in XP, it recognizes the device and scans even over the network. Works every time for me.

If you need more help let me know I CAN solve this problem, let me know.

Hello,

The scanner function is not available when you are connected wireless, you must be connected via USB to your PC for the scanner to function correctly.

USB NOT CONNECTED ERROR WHEN IT IS CONNECTED


This is a HP hardware/software error and HP has not fixed it.

The C4250 may report that "USB is not connected" but the printer works just fine and when you use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard to carry out a scan, it works just fine too. So the error message is wrong.

The Microsost Scanner and Camera Wizard can be found on the Control Panel.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


hi
i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
over and over again

and then it hit me !!!

why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

cheers
