How do you scan with HP Deskjet 2050 J510 on Mac OSX 10.7.2?

I am trying to scan using my Deskjet 2050 J510 on my Mac OSX 10.7.2. I cannot seem to figure it out, can anyone help me with this? the only thing that will open is the utility for the printer. Any ideas?

Did you get the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page?

 

Have you tried to scan with Image Capture in your Applications folder?  Try it (click the "Show Details" button along the bottom of its window for more options).

Hi,

You have two options two scan, either by the HP Scan Application or the Print & Scan dialog.

 

First, make sure to update the latest driver:

Click the Apple icon, then click Software Update.

Click the Show Details button, make sure that any HP Update is selected and then click Install.

 

Clck the desktop once, then click the Go menu at the top bar.

Enter the Applications folder.

Enter the Hewlett-Packard folder.

Double click the HP Scan icon in order to scan.

 

You may change the settigs by using the bottom bar, and then click Scan.

Once done, click Save to save your scan.

 

You can also use any of the OS scan options by following the steps below:

Scan using Image Capture in your Applications folder. Choose  your scanner on the left, then click "Show Details" along the bottom.

Why wouldn't the HP utility work? Thank you so much for mentioning Image Capture!!! It saved me, but I'm still curious why Utility doens't work..
