Question about HP Photosmart C7180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Photosmart C7180 All-In-One

I am running Windows Vista and using the HP Photosmart C7180 wirelessly.
When I scan to the computer all the images have lines of colour running from the top left corner to the bottom right all over the scans. It is more obvious on blacks and dark blues as here it obviously shows up more. Any ideas ????
Also the image on my computer and the lcd on the printer are not the same as the printed photo, this comes out much darker. In fact pinks come out more red and white are tinged green, again any ideas????

Hi try coping a document from the machine and see if the copy comes out with these lines. If it does then the machine scanner unit is faulty and will need replacing. If not then the likely thing is that the printer device drivers are incorrect or faulty. reinstall the drivers or download a up to date driver from hp.com for the other printing darker try changing the graphic processor mode in the driver. Goto printers and faxes right hand click on the printer icon and select properties.

Once in properties select the advanced tab at the top of the windows within this tab at the bottom select print processor. Once in there choose another graphic mode OK close and test if no improvement select a different one and so on until improvement is achieved. if no improvement then reinstall the drivers if you haven't already.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Using my F380 all in one, how do I scan to my

Scan an image
You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.
This section explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only.
To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on.
The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
● On a Mac, the software is always running.
Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.
To scan to a computer
1. Place your original print side down on the left front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan.
A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it.
3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.
To stop scanning ➔ Press Cancel on the control panel.
If this doesn't work for some reason you should also be able to scan using windows camera and scanning wizard, the link will show you how if you have XP, just scroll down past the "how to print" section.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/hwandprograms/printfaxscan.mspx
or this if you have Vista:
If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.
If this is the case then you can download a free program called IrfanView from there site: http://www.irfanview.com/
Click the Start icon. Click All Programs .
Click Windows Photo Gallery .
Click File and then click Import From Scanner or Camera .
Click Import .
Click Scan .

If you cannot find the scanner wizard it could be because your version of vista doesn't have it, I'm not 100% but I think it was only packaged with the business version of vista.

I hope that helps..

I scan a document and then I click on

I suppose you should have some software running on your system to accept the file.

Check the user guide.

Scanner

Hi damirish I have also been experiencing problems with the Scan To Computer button. I am currently in dialogue with the HP "head technician" who is due to ring me tomorrow. I will let you know what my resolution is. Basically, my problem is that my network (I use a netgear router) and have one wired (XP Pro) and two wireless PCs connected to it - one Vista laptop and one XP laptop. For some strange reason, the wired PC is happily displaying the correct Scan to file, Word etc functions yet my two wirelessly connected (Not the the printer itself but via wireless router) PCs appear multiple times and when I try to scan something to these two laptops, I get all kinds of errors. Even after running the HP clean-up tools and rebooting and reinstalling the HP software (32 bit) I now am faced with problems whereby the C7180 is not even recognised by the HP "Solution Center". Sadly, despite it's marvellous printing quality, I am thinking this unit is going back to the HP factory for some serious overhauling. Again, I'll let you know if there is a resolution and hopefully HP will investigate why the Scan settings are so faulty. Regards Andrew from Adelaide, Australia
