You need to load the software for the HP printer in question. Then you need to set it up. If you have IE7 installed (big E with a golden halo) then you need to go to the HP site and download the patch for the HP director or it won't work. Once there, you can configure it to scan to the computer.

Here is a sample screen of the HP director:
how do i scan to - 072929e.jpg
When you click on SETTINGS, SCAN SETTINGS AND PREFERENCES, SCAN TO SETUP, you get to this screen.
Once here, you should be ok. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Are you able to scan from your computer?

Can you tell me which operating system do you have?

What you can try is that you can disable the Anti virus program of your computer once and then try.

Also make sure that the USB cable is plugged in the back of your cabinet and not in the front

Make sure you go to Hp's website and download the drivers for windows 7 support. Also when installing HP printers make sure the printer is not attached to the computer while driver installation is preforming. Only attach the printer to the compter after the driver is installed and the system reboots.

How can I use scanner on my printer? my printer says it is a printer, scanner and copier. I do not know how to use the scanner. I put a print under the lid, pressed scanner, but where is the picture/print?...

You need to install the software that came with the printer. Then in the HP program group there will be a number of programs, one of which will allow you to scan. Try all the programs if you do not know which one to use (on my printer I have to use the HP Solution centre program).

I am trying to scan pics to my computer it was unable to retrieve application then when I use defaults it says requesting scan failed

I would say that you need to reinstall your software. Your pc is not finding the scanning software. Sometimes programs become degraded over time. You should also :
Right click on my computer>select properties>device manager>scroll until you find your dell 926, then right click on it and click on install new driver> choose the option to find driver on my compter. You may not need it, but you might.

Which button do i press to scan

Hello. Here's the button you need to press on the printer control panel to scan to computer(see image below).

For additional information on how to scan, here's the User's Guide (Lexmark X2500, X2550, X2570, X2580). Also, make sure that the scan software is already installed in the computer by using the installation cd. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Your printer should have come with the Epson Scan software on the installation CD. If not you can download the software from Epson support.
