What is the brand of your printer?

always consider if the printer is properly connected to your computer

power cycle the printer before you use it specially if you let it open for long period of time it works mose of the time

check if you can print from your computer to printer if it is working then communication between the 2 devices is fine

check also if you do a copy function on the printer itself as standalone.If you can scan feature is functioning and if not scan feature is damaged

try doing scan from MS Paint on your computer click file and click from scanner or camera if you can scan it means driver of the printer on your computer is fine mind to check the software of your printer if it is HP,Lexmark or Epson etc.

Much better to post the brand and model of the printer so we can give you specific steps.above steps are generic steps for this type of issues.

Hope I help you a bit

Thanks

In order to use the scanning function on an all in one printer, you must install the included software. It's possible that is your printer is older, the included software may not be compatible with Windows 7. It may be possible to get updated software that is compatible from the manufacturer's website. If you let me know what the make and model of your printer is, I can look it up for you.

Manual


First what OS are you using? Do you have the full software installed, the basic HP driver or the OS-based driver? The first time you scan, you will need to start the scan from the computer. Put your document face down on the scanner glass or face up if you have an automatic document feeder. Launch the HP Solution Center (in Windows), and then click Scan Photo or Scan Document. If you need to adjust the settings, cancel the scan and click Settings. Then click Scan Settings.

If you have the full software installed, you can set up the software to "listen" for the button presses and launch the software to scan. Use the first scan to give you your defaults to enter into the Button settings. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings and then Scan Settings. Then click Button Settings and then the Front Panel Buttons tab.

If you have the OS-based driver installed or the basic HP driver, with Windows 7, you can use Windows Fax and Scan.

The manuals for the HP Deskjet F2480 are available from HP here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3811337& .

How do you scan a document to MS-Word?

4)Go to "Start->Programs->Microsoft Office Tools->Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
5)Go to "File->Open" and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.TIFF format.
6)Go to "Tools->Send Text to Word." You will get a prompt stating this process will take time, Click OK. This will take some time depending on your computer's speed (a minute or two at the most).

A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

Hi, I have 2 computers one laptop Sony Vaio and a regular desktop both with windows 7 running for a while now. The drivers from HP that i downloaded worked fine on the laptop, but on the desktop they are...


My first though is that these two computers are running different versions of Windows 7. The scanner will run on Windows 7, but, HP states "some features may not be available." Did you get Windows 7 drivers from this link? If one computer is running Windows 7 Home and One is running Windows 7 professional, there would be a difference in hardware support. Professional has more compatibility than Home Premium. I suggest that you: 1. COMPLETELY Uninstall the scanner from the computer that is not working. This includes running a registry cleaner following the standard uninstall. 2. Download the correct Windows 7 software for your version of Windows 7 3. Test the product.
HP posted the driver in January 2010. I hope this helps you.
