Question about HP Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

I have a 7130 officejet that the scan function quit working on. I get a error message stating it won't communicate with my PC, yet I can upload pictures from my camera mem ory card and it will print anything sent to it. I have scoured the manual and on screen users guide, but cannot find anything to help solve my problem. I have also checked all connections and rebooted both my PC & the Officejet with no change. Any ideas?

    Could not figure out how to reload just the scanner driver from my HP software, so I uninstalled it all from my computer and reinstalled and the scanner is working. Thanks for the help. John

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE GLASS ON A HP OFFICEJET 7130 PRINTER I HAVE REMOVED THE SCREWS BUT THE COVER WON'T COME OFF.


Gene,
There are a couple of "hidden" attachment points which hold down the top bezel and glass. You can see step-by-step photos on disassembly of the scan bed that will show right where they are at http://www.fatrcat.com/hp7100/scan_head.html

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

Have all-in-one HP 7130. get error message stating alignment failed. Problem started after I replaced cartridge ink.


Whenever you replace inks it will want to do alignment. Before installing new inks you should dab the bottom gently on a damp paper towel and see that all colors make a stripe on the towel. If any colors are missing during alignment it will always fail.

HP 7590 office jet pro scanner does not communicate


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.

Keep getting scanning error message


How do you have the HP6110 connected to your system? This problem can sometimes be caused by using to long a cable between the computer and the multifunction printer. I would use a short cable (6 foot or less) to make sure that it's not a communications problem. This ususally manifests itself with an error message while scanning although the printing function work ok.

Getting error when trying to fax or scan


The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
