HP Photosmart C7280 All -In_one---can't get it to scan

I need to scan something and when I scroll down to Scan to Computer I get a message that says: Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot. I read the guidebook, however, I do not see a solution to this problem. I would expect it to ask me to scan to my computer which is set up as the default, but this isn't happening.
Please help.
Thanks!

1. Tried opening HP Solution Center
2. Try scanning using the solution center
3. If you still unable to scan using the HP Solution Center try to check if there is Digital Imaging Monitor in the lower part of your screen. If you can not see it download the scan diagnostic utility.

"No Scan Options - Refer


There is a 'white paper' available on HP's website that specifically addresses this error message. I'm providing the link for you that will take you directly to that page:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docum...

Please read it and maybe print it out for reference... it explains what you need to do and THE ORDER you need to do it in. This should solve your issue...

Good Luck!

Can't scan- Refer to device documentation to


Try using widows paint. Look in windows accessories off the start program menu. If you open windows paint, look for open file from "Scanner or Camera". Most likely you can get the scanner to work again in Vista. Otherwise...try Vuescan scanner software. I think you can get a free trial period online and it should also work. You'll have to pay for that if you like it.

I had this problem also and came to find out that in order to scan, you have to go into your "PAINT" and go to "FILE" and scroll down to "FROM SCANNER OR PRINTER" and then follow the instructions. It works!

Cannot scan a photo to my computer


Hi jcathcart,

For OfficeJet and PhotoSmart, please try this link:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&docname=c00503569&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

This link might be helpful, too, FAQs for All-in-Ones:

I just went to www.hp.com and typed in "no scan options" in their search field at the top of the screen. You can find even more help though if you drill down through your specific product.

Please let me know if this helps a little...
