    Officejet J5780 // Copy works fine. Printer works fine. Pressing 'Scan To' button triggers error message "No Scan Options" on printer display. Also cannot enter the HP solutions center..."No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will close now" Tried uninstalling and reinstalling software from original disk and website. Nothing fixes the problem.

    I am unable to scan any documents, and I am a little reluctant to uninstall and reinstall a new driver. The driver had been causing problems with office 2007 and I finally had an IT person fix the problem. Does anyone else know of another option?

    Printer can't find anywhere to scan to

    Printer message is "no scan options, refer to device documentation to trouble shoot." Previously the message asked me to reload driver. I did this from the internet.

Problem Solved. I'm not sure what exactly was the answer but here is the steps I followed. First I went to the HP website and followed their procedure to uninstall hidden devices (namely duplicate HP devices). I uninstalled all of the devices. Then (with the USB cable still attached) I deleted the Printer and Scanner from Control Panel. At this point I disconnected the USB cable (the cable worked but the software wouldn't recognize the cable was attached). With the cable unattached, I uninstalled all the HP software with the 'remove software' program in control panel. The I used the original disk for the printer and reinstalled the software. Eventually the installation process prompted me to reinstall the USB cable. It was at this point the software started to recognize the cable again. And here is the best part, after the software finished installing the 'Scan To' button started working correctly!!!!
