SOURCE: Can't scan from HP Photosmart C7280 to my Mac Computer

The best way to scan documents from the scanner to your computer is to use HP Photosmart Essential. If you don`t already have it installed it can be downloaded from the HP site. Once in the program it is very simple to follow. It is basically a point and click operation.

Let me know how you make out and we can do other things if this doesn`t work for you.

Please remember to rate me.

SOURCE: Have HP Photosmart C7200 and

I had the same problem and just found the solution.

Solution one: Make sure that the Digital Imaging Monitor is ready The Digital Imaging Monitor must be running in order for the Scan To function to work. If it is running, the DIM icon (c01404188.gif ) is present in the notification area. The notification area is located in the lower-right corner of the computer by the clock. Figure 1: Notification area c01404189.gif If the DIM icon is in the system tray, you do not need to complete this procedure. Skip to the next solution. Follow these steps to set the computer to run the DIM.

  1. On the Windows taskbar, click the Windows icon (c01364735.gif ).
  2. In the Start Search text box, type msconfig , and then press Enter .
  3. On the User Account Control window, click Continue . The System Configuration Utility window appears.
  4. Click the Startup tab.
  5. Select the HP Digital Imaging Monitor check box. If HP Digital Imaging Monitor is not on the list, the driver was not correctly installed or a custom install was used. Reinstall the software to resolve this issue.
  6. Click Apply , and then click Close .
  7. Click Yes to restart the computer.
  8. Attempt the scan again.

I am sick and tired of the problems i have with this PSC, but i have found a scanning solution and thought i would share it.

Use Microsoft Paint. It's not the best application in the world, but you can insert a scan from a scanner in the 'file' menu. :0) The scans are not of the best quality, but i'm grateful i can scan at all with this useless PSC.

How do i change the ssid on my photosmart plus b209a-m printer


Step 1: Click on Windows icon (bottom left hand screen)
Step 2: Select Devices and Printers
Step 3: Right Click on "HP Photosmart Printer Plus B209a-m"

Step 4: Select "Printing Preferences"
Step 5: Click on Tab "Features"
Step 6: Select "Printer Services" in the bottom right hand corner
Step 7: Click on tab "Network Settings"
What you click on there depends on what's wrong with your setup, I think. Mine had a "Configure Wireless" option where I was stepped through the process.

Good Luck!

I cannot scan to my computer in my photosmart b209a. I did get the error at the end of installation that said there was a problem with scan communication. I can scan using windows photo gallery, but not...


you may need to change the com port that the printer is using, it may be in conflict with some other hardware. Go to device manager and click on printer and right click go to properties and see what com port it is on., check other hardware and make sure nothing else is running on the same com port.
You may also try re-installling the software.
