Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Can not scan

WIndows Vista Business, 4 gigs of RAM, 250 gig hd.
On the officejet 5610 control panel when I hit the scan button the LCD, tells me no hp device attached and I get the amber warning light on next to the setup button. Everything is connected properly and the USB cable is good, tried two different ones, one brand new out of the box.. USB 2.0. I can copy the picture and I can scan it if I select HP Photosmart essential icon on the desktop. I never do see the HP DIGITAL IMAGING MONITOR anywhere. I have uninstalled the software twice and reinstalled it. Used a registry cleaner and PC Pitstop Optimizer after each uninstall, Updated my drivers on the HP website. Still have same issue, bought the officejet 5610 all in one yesterday evening.
I\'ve had the same problem for months. Now i don\'t see the HP digital monitoring icon anymore. I haven\'t seen the photosmart essential for many months now. Does anyone ever used the scanner on this printer. My problem started from day one.

When this happen it is usually the USB cable. When this happen it is usually a problem with the USB cable. If
communication on USB cable is bad, as a result you can print but not
scan.Having also messed up a bit with the drivers ("HP digital
monitoring icon anymore"), you may also need to reinstall the driver.
My suggestion on how to proceed is the following.
Buy a better usb cable, the shilded ones cost a couple of dollars more but guarantee better communication.
Unplug printer from usb.
Unplug computer and printer from power for two minutes.
Plug back computer and printer to power, DO NOT plug in USB cable yet, leave printer NOT connected to pc.
Reinstall
drivers and software, keep printer disconnected until connection is
explicitely required by printer software installation process, or after
installing.
Connect printer when required.
Check that there is no
electric device (power adapters, extension etc.) very near to printer
USB cable, they can cause electromagnetic disturbance.
Try scanning. If it does not work at thhis point is either a problem with windows (new windows install required) or a faulty scanner.

HP Officejet 5610 all in one When i try to scan


If you have windows vista and it comes up with the "no scan options" don't press the button on the printer, go to "start" then "accessories" then "paint". This will open up the windows paint program. Go to "File" then click on "From scanner or printer". It will then scan the document, no more problems

If this answer helpful please vote me.

Good luck.

I have a HP Officejet 5610. I placed a sheet of paper down on top and pressed scan. It didnt work. How do I scan using this machine?


If you're already connected and printing to the 5610, here is how to scan in Windows 7 and Vista.
Windows Vista: utube.png You-Tube video "xJxmPOsyDOQ" placeholder

Windows 7: utube.png You-Tube video "E3k666qCqXs" placeholder

If those don't work, I'd go here. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=441125&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20%C2%BB 1. Choose your operating system. 2. Click on "Utility - Diagnostic Tools". 3. Then click on "HP Scan Diagnostic Utility" and follow the instructions to open and run the utility. The utility can help ensure the scanner is connected and working properly.

I want to print a configiration page from my hp office jet 5610 all in one printer


If you want a snapshot of how the printer is configured and a quick self test, to the following from the front panel of the 5610.

1. hit the "Setup" button.
2. hit the right arrow to "Print Reports"
3. hit the "ok" button
4. hit the right arrow to "Self Test"
5. hit the "ok" button

The printer will then print a report that tells you the series and model number as well as the serial number, Service ID, LIU type, Country/Region, The active I/O connection, all of your cartridge alignment settings then display color bands for all your cartridges. It also tells how many pages your printer has printed (I am up to 2,068 on the cartridges that I reload myself) as well as the firmware version.

Good luck and hope this helps. -Dan
