There are two option u can do. if you can't open the scanning program chances is that you haven't installed or you don't installed it correctly.... in an all in one printer you should install a scanning program that is included in the disk when you bought the printer...

the scanning program include the scanner driver that is needed for that operation....

Microtek Scanner thinks it's busy when it isn't


Check using a new USB cable. Unplug everything else plug into USB except for mouse and keyboard. If not work. Un-install driver and software. Download driver and latest software. Reinstall printer using driver only. Then use Paint to test it.

HP 2520hc scanner drivers


Which driver set did you install? Did you install the HP basic drivers, the full software or the Windows XP built-in driver? The Windows OS driver usually only is the printer driver.

If you connected the USB cable before installing the HP software, you will get the OS drivers. Disconnect the USB cable and then uninstall the printer driver. (Start > Control Panel > Printers and Devices. Then right click on the printer and select Remove Device.)

Install the HP software. If you want to launch a scan from the all-in-one's front panel button, install the full software.

Next open the scan software on your computer. (This is the HP Solutions Center for most models if you use the full software.) Attempt to launch a scan from the software. Adjust the resolution and other settings as needed. Then use those settings to adjust the destinations for the front panel buttons in the software. (Settings > Scan Settings > Button Settings)

If this doesn't work, try a different USB cable, a different USB port on your computer and a direct connection (if you are using a USB hub). Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and may fail when the printer works due to a minor cable issue. If you have the printer connected to a router or similar device to turn it into a network printer, again the scanner will not work. Again the direct connection to the computer is needed.

If you are still having trouble, can you use the all-in-one's copy function? If not, do you have any error messages? If the scanner mechanism isn't moving, the unit probably needs service. (This model doesn't have a scanner lock to protect the mechanism in transit.)

I hope this helps.

I am having problems making my scanner work - I can't scan a document from the printer/scanner/fax/copier to my laptop


How is the all-in-one connected to your computer? What OS are you using? Did you install the full software, basic drivers or the OS drivers? Are you starting your scan from the computer or the buttons on the all-in-one? Is this a newly installed printer or one that has been used several times with this computer?

The Photosmart C7180 can be used with a USB connection, wired ethernet network, wireless network, bluetooth or PictBridge. For a Mac OS, only the USB connection will work.

If you need the drivers, see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=1153754& and select your OS.

If you connected the all-in-one to the computer via a USB connection before installing the software, you may have an OS driver that does not include the scanner driver. Disconnect the USB cable then uninstall the driver. Then install the HP driver. If you do not install the full software, you will not be able to use the buttons on the scanner to launch a scan. You'll have to start the scan from the computer.

If you have the full software, the HP Solution Center is installed. This includes a monitoring program that should run when you start your computer. This listens for the press of a button on the scanner and launches the appropriate part of the HP software. However, you need to set the button destinations in this software first. I recommend manually scanning at least once to set the appropriate resolution and destination folder for your scans. Then in the Solution Center, click Settings, Scan Settings, Button Settings and then Front Panel Scan Buttons. Set these based on your default settings.

If this all-in-one has been working previously, check your connection. Scanning requires bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail even when the printer works. Try a new USB cable and a different port, if you are using that connection. If you are on a network connection, check that the firewall isn't blocking communication. (Temporarily disable the firewall to check.) In Windows, check the Devices and Printers (Win7's name) control panel and check if the scanner is a listed device. Right click on it and check the properties and status. (All-in-ones are often listed twice - as a printer and as a scanner.) HP offers a diagnostic program, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/doclink?lc=en&cc=us&product=1153754&tmp_docname=c02114802 , to check for issues with the scanner.

Try manually scanning with another program than the HP software. Windows includes some options that will acquire scans. XP, Vista and Win7 all include Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Windows7 (and some versions of Vista) include Windows Fax and Scan (click New Scan). If you have the Microsoft Live software, you also have Windows Photo Gallery (works like Paint).

If you are connect the all-in-one to a USB print server, the scanner probably won't work. Try a different type of connection.

If you are using the all-in-one on a network, make sure that the network is up and the printer has an IP address. I've seen routers lose their connection for various reasons. (Rebooting both the modem and router sometimes cures the problem.)

Please add more information on your specific scanner problem and I'll try to provide specific suggestions.

I hope this helps.

We have on eprintwer of hp 1005 scanner and copier when ever we try to scan or copy its shows scanner error 12 we have also showed this printer to the person who is authorised person for hp and now its...


By your calling the HP tech, I'm assuming that the printer is under warranty.
Call HP back, ask to speak with the area manager, explain calmly that after 2 months
the problem isn't fixed. And give him the original service call number. Your problem will
get fixed.

I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.


Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.

I can't get my scanner to work it says try starting scan from put


First you have to load the scanner (twain driver). Then load the scanning software. Then plug the printer/scanner into the usb port on the pc. The pc should then recognize the scanner. You might have to turn your pc off then on again to recognize the scanner. Then try to open the scanning software on your pc and put the document on the scanning glass and press the aquire/scan button on the software. Hopefully, that should work.

Scanner hp 5610 not working


Scanners come with scanning software. This software must be installed for the scanner to work. I would install the scanning software, and try scanning again.

Usually this type of error message pops up when the scanner lamp isn?t warming up properly. This is what you should do: 1. Check if the lamp is on. 2. Unplug the scanner?s power supply and plug it back in. Try connecting it diretly to the wall. 3. If that doesn?t work: a. Unplug the unit?s power supply. b. Press ?cancel? and left arrow while reconnecting the unit. c. Release the buttons when the printer starts up. 4. Try scanning again. 5. If it doesn?t work, have it serviced.
