Ok well I would say it sounds like you have a driver issue - best chance is to uninstall the software that is on there now and then reinstall from downloaded drivers.

Go to the hp website at www.hp.com and on the left side you will see a grey menu that says software and driver downloads click on it and type your product. Then click on your OS and go to the most recent driver available - usually the one under software that is the largest file is the best one to use.

As for having 10.5 on the mac this printer is not compatible with 10.5 - you will only be able to print due to the leopard system having built in drivers. Call hp and see if they have any upgrade units available - usually refurbished but they come with a 1 yr warranty and are significantly cheaper than buying a new unit from the store.

I do not see an icon for the HPscanner on my desktop.


Open the control panel page. Click on Printers & faxes page. The list of printers will be displayed. Right click on your printer icon. On the displayed box go to 'send to'. Select desktop. You will have the printer icon on the desk top.

HP Solution Center does not recognize the scanner anymore... We are operating on a Windows 7 system... the drivers had to be downloaded from the internet because the cd that came with the printer was for...


I had the same problem and solved it. I was using HP Solution Centre to run my HP Scanjet 5590 on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without problems. Then I ran the scanner using Windows Fax and Scan, but didn't like it, so went back to HP Solution Centre - whereupon the scanner was not recognised.
After hours of reinstalling software etc etc, without success, I suddenly noticed four device icons on the left hand side of HP Solution Centre. These were labelled (when hovered over with the mouse) hp scanjet 5590, hp scanjet 5590 #2, hp scanjet 5590 #3, hp scanjet 5590 #4. Only the top icon was active, but when I clicked on any of the four it moved to the top.
Clicking on hp scanjet 5590 #2 gave me a working installation once more - problem solved. No doubt the multiple icons arose from my desperate attempts to try different USB ports.

Reinstall the printer over and over again


This is a common problem I got with many HP installer: Scanner, Printer, DVD drives always when using USB.
I had request to reinstall HP device every time I used scanner on XP home SP1, Update to SP2 and latest HP driver fixed the issue.
recently HP3050 was reinstalling with a new USB address after every power off. Upgrade to SP3 and changed model to HP1319 fixed.
Check your security settings: HP installer tries to install some hidden programs (rootkit?) clearly conflicting with some security protection (specially if you are using some hidden program installer as AOL or Symantec)).
1) check all your security protection: AV, Firewall, policy you set, disable what you do not need.
2) update your windows installer
be sure you have an update windows (are you on XP SP1?)
3) I recommend you uninstall all your USB printer and remove all your HP device:
Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall any HP or unknown device under Printers.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.
When this is done, reboot TWICE.
4) reinstall your Prt driver BEFORE connecting the printer

Let me know is this is fixing your issue.

Drivers for Lexmark x5470 disapear after the laptop is turned on.


Hey,

Fully uninstall the lexmark from your computer, everything, delete the printer from printers and faxes and make sure there is no trace of the printer on the computer.

Then get the files you downloaded and install the printer again.

Everything should work normally.



Thanks,

Installing HP c3180 on windows vista


Hi,
Here's the link ro download the Vista driver for your Printer/Scanner:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1146331

You should uninstall the XP driver for the Printer and install this instead: HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

You should use the uninstaller utility on the HP support page on the link provided, and after installing the new driver.

You can also scan and copy in Vista by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP C3180) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

    I have new Hp photosmart C4385 all in one scanner, printer, copies. The printer was initially onstalled. Working w/ wireless HP pavillion. It print & copies fine. Scan does not work. When I enter...


    I had a similar problem recently... You have to actually install the scanner software. You probably only installed the print drivers, but not the scanner software. If you don't have the CD handy, go to www.hp.com/#Support. In step one select "Download drivers and software (and firmware)". In step 2 enter your model number (photosmart C4385) and then press "go". It will lead you to a page to select your operating system. Follow that link to download the entire CD (large file).

    When you are installing the software, make sure to install the scanner software too.
