SOURCE: hp 2700 series all in one printer scanning issues

Hi .
Let me first explain that the scanning softwareis seperately loaded into the computer which is called as Digital Imaging. Try the step below:
1. try scanning from scanners and cameras - 2 errors might pop up if it does not scan - an error occurred communiating with the scanning device / no HP device detected.
2. start - programs - locate for a software loaded called HP Solution Centre / HP Director.Open the software if loaed and try to scan from there. If its not loaded then insert th installation cd and click on Install more software - full.
3. In HP solution Centre / Director click setting - scan settings - scan to ..... setup - see that both the columns of front panel and available destination list should be having some icons into it (you can add and delete from any column as desired - but none should be empty)

If none of the above work then try uninstalling and re-installing the printer software all over again

SOURCE: HP PSC 1315, scanner and Mac os

To scan documents on Mac OS X using your HP PSC 1315, you need to download HP's "Device Manager" software which is available here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-41992-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=374572&os=219&lang=en

I just installed the software and am now scanning problem-free.

If you get the error while trying to scan with your HP 5610v All-In-One, the easy way to scan from your printer is to click on start, go to Paint and then File, the option "From Scanner or Camera" will come up.. click there and poof - you can scan anything you want and save it where you want... Problem solved!! good luck!!!

i had the same problem with vista home premium. vista does not support one touch scanning (pressing the scan button on the printer). to use scanner with vista home os use the paint application and start scanning with the file section. step by step:
start (windows) icon lower left tool bar
programs
accessories
paint
file
from scanner or camera
the hp should start working - note: i sent a short cut to the desk top for the paint program for future use

Put photos on facebook? Not from phones, or cameras with simscards, just old photos.


Scan them onto your computer, save them to your computer. Go to your facebook page, hit upload photo, go to browse button, go to where you stored your pics ie. photos or desktop, find the pic you want to upload then click on it, hit ok and it should upload for you.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

Scanning from Canon MP530 to Mac Powerbook


If you;ve installed the MP Navigator software from the CD, then you should be able to press the scan button on the printer with your Mac connected and the MP navigator will open automatically on your Mac ready to scan. You can also try going into Preview (the Mac app) and from the file menu select Import... and it should open a scan window.  Hope this helps!

Scanner


are you pressing ok on the printer? all of your scanning should be done via the MP460 navigator. check your applications under the Canon Utlitiy and click on the MP460 Navigator button. scanning needs to be done via that - not the actual printer. refer to the dialogue box when you are on the MP460 navigator. lower left area has a Save bar, when you click on it tow options: save to PC or save as PDF.
