    I plugged in a borrowed HP 3180 All-in-One and tried to scan.  It won't initiate.  I think we lost any user's manual or cd that came with it.  I plugged it into the Mac so it should just read it.  It's not working to scan.  Any suggestions?

I had the same problem where if I would try to scan from the printer to pc it would not, but somehow I am able after doing this.

1)Download the HP 3180 printer driver (full version).

2) Install the driver once it is done downloading.
a)if you have the basic driver installed have the full version uninstall it and then restart the computer and install the full version.

3) Restart the computer if you see the HP digital imaging icon you will be able to scan documents from the printer to the computer.

I hope this can help to anyone who is having this problem.

    One thing I forgot to mention. The HP digital imaging icon will be on the lower right corner where you are able to see the time.

Scanner function does not appear to work. All


i would say possibly you are missing out on something..because if the other functions particularly photocopying are working then this should work..as in if the photocopying function works then the scanner is ok cause basically in photocopying the machine scans then prints... perhaps check whether you are correctly following procedure to scan..most hp all in ones have a button on them that you press and it automatically initiates scanning and simultaneously the software on the pc is initiated..try this,if not then try reinstalling the hp software..hope this helps..regards

Hi there, you are very near in the solution. Just today i solve the same problem manually. When the system ask this message "where I want the image saved " 1st select the path -- My computer/C:/program file/HP scan jet/ select here the Scanner Icon and press Ok. I mean just follow the location of installation file of your scanner. After that scan the image or else , you will get the success. Thanks & waiting for your success feedback.

HP L7650 Scanner Could Not Be Initialized in Leopard (Not Found)


If you're using Vista, this happens all too regularly with HP printers. I've had a few where I have to uninstall everything then re-install to make things work.
Two weeks later the same thing, same process.
Try downloading latest drivers from HP and see if that helps. HP don't admit there's a problem.
Don't seem to have this problem with Epson printers tho.

Scanner is stopping during scan cycle


when you tried it on other lmachines did you load software from same source? If its a software driver problem, you can uninstall the one you have and then try getting a new copy from hp website and reinstall fresh.
If there are any known issues or updates, then the current version will be best anyway and may solve the problem.
Probably not much you can do if its a harware problem, unless its under warranty.

My HP 3180 printer/scanner will not scan. It will print. What can I do?


Go to HP.com and download the latest drivers for your scanner. When asked where to save the drivers, chose DESKTOP. Then you must go to CONTROL PANEL uninstall the old HP files. then go to your desktop and install the new drivers. This should take care of your problem as long as there insn't amechanical problem with your scanner.

Trouble scanning


My old HP4200 scanner running on Windows 98 gave me a lot of trouble not initializing also. The easiest fix for me was to power up the unit a couple of minutes prior to plugging in the USB cord. This gave the lamp time to warm up and then the unit would (home out) or synchronize when the PC found the scanner. Also if I recall, HP had a driver update for that model. Hope this helps.

I have a HP 3180 and it prints just fine but will not scan and I have Windows Vista.


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
