After having this printer for a year, I have had to uninstall reinstall too many times to remember for all sorts of reasons. Last month this worked fine so far: Delete all relevent HP soft ware by install/uninstall utility, disc that comes with printer or removal tool from HP website, this will want to do a reboot. before it does disconnect usb from printer to computer. Reboot. when restart has settled down plug in printer. Let windows do all the installing without the disc in the computer. When it asks for install disc insert & it will find the drivers etc it needs from the disc. Do not use the installation program on the disc. For me, this has made scanning much easier, wireless connection is now reliable & printing faster. some of the utilities from HP will not be installed like ink levels from the computer etc, but they can be accessed from the controls of the printer. I think their software was getting in the way & making things slow. Worked for me, hope for you too/

Hi,

there are two ways in scanning. You can use the HP Solution Center installed in your computer or you can use the scan menu button from your printer. And as you mentioned that you tried scanning from the printer itself and it didnt work, right?

OKay, normally, when you try scanning from the printer, you will encounter a message that would say "NO SCAN OPTIONS". That means to say that the options is not listed on your printer. here are the things that i would want you to do and to make it easier for you, just click the "DOCUMENT" below

If your Operating SYstem is XP click here==> DOCUMENT
If your Operating SYstem is Vista click here==> DOCUMENT

Please, let me know if the issue is resolve or not so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.


Thank you so much.

When I touch the Scan Menu button, and choose scan to computer I get a message that states: No Scan Options I have been scanning for a year. This happened suddenly and I can't figure out why


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Due to any reason when the HP Communications process fails the HP Scan application won’t work. To resolve the issue you’ll need to follow the procedure as given below---

  1. Force Quit HP Communications (if running)
  2. Force Quit HP Scan (if running)
  3. Turn the printer off
  4. Turn the printer on
  5. Select Scan Picture from the HP Director application
  6. When the HP Scan application complains, press Reset
  7. HP Scan will then hang, but HP Communications will restart
  8. Force Quit HP Scan (again)
  9. Select Scan Picture from the HP Director application (again)

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have a HP F4280 printer/copier/scanner. "MFC HP Scan application has stopped working." I get this message when I scan but only if I change settings, eg change colour to greyscale. It suggests...


I am not a tech geek so bear with me I am going to walk through it on my computer and tell you how to in theory get where you want to get. Hopefully it works, let me know either way. Unfortunately for you, I locate files via the explore feature so that is the only way I can find it again. Hopefully this works for you.

Right click on the Windows Icon in the bottom left hand corner of your computer (same as the start button for other features with a left click)

-Click on Explore
- Find and click on Program files
- Find and click on HP folder or Hewlett Packard Folder

-Find and Click on Digital Imaging Folder
-Double Click on BIN folder
-Find the following file: hpqscnvw
-Double click on that file (hpqscnvw)

Your HP scanning feature should open

I am thinking I may just create a shortcut of this and launch from that instead of HP solutions center if HP cannot fix this issue.

Let me know if this works for you.

SmarThru Office can't see scanner (nor can word)


Windows is using Window's default scan driver, so it's working only within Windows scan wizard feature. You will need to install the Scan Driver separately to work with SmarThru and other software. The Scan Driver is available at Samsung website.

I have a HP photosmart C6180 all-in-one and I am trying to scan a picture onto the computer but every time I go to the scan menu it says Error: Sorry, scanner could not be initialized. (Scanner not found.)


I get this every now and then, usually because, during a scan, I abort for some reason--reset the computer, force-quit, whatever.  The printer driver, I think, leaves some breadcrumbs that it can't recover from when it runs again.
Anyway, I reset the printing system and install the latest HP driver.  If that doesn't work, I delete the HP folder in the Applications folder; then remove whatever files I can find in the /Library folder such as Application Support/Hewlett-Packard, Application Support/HP, any HP file in Preferences, Image Capture/TWAIN Data Sources/HPScanPro.ds.
Then reinstall the driver and things work fine.  I'm thinking this last item, the HPScanPro.ds in the TWAIN folder might be the culprit but I haven't tried just remove it alone--after I remove everything things work so I can't "try it again"...and don't want to!  =)
Anyway, I've had success with this method.  Good luck!
