Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

Hi

 

Try using the scrubber built into the CD or Download.

 

From Original installation CD:

1. Insert CD into drive, and then cancel the installer

2. Open My Computer, and then right click on the CD drive and chose open

3. Open folder Util

4. Open folder CCC

5. If you have an HP computer run the L3uninstall.exe. If you have a non-HP computer run the L4uninstall.exe

6. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer

7. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools

8. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads​.html

9. Enter your printer model number, and click next

10. Select your model from the list available

11. Download the full feature software and drivers for your operating system

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?cc=us&lc=en

12. Run the download to reinstall the printer

 

If software was downloaded and extracted to your system:

1. Type %temp% in the run field

2. Look for, and open the folder starting with 7z (Example: 7zS2356)

3. Open folder Util

4. Open folder CCC

5. If you have an HP computer run the L3uninstall.exe. If you have a non-HP computer run the L4uninstall.exe

6. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

I had this problem on Win XP Pro and solved it by installing 'HP imaging device functions' from the installation CD, which I hadn't previously installed. Then the HP solution center worked. I hope this helps someone else struggling with the same problem.

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

My installation CD does not show "HP imaging device functions."  The is for an HP Scanjet 4890 that worked for several years and then stopped working with HP Solution Center.  I can scan OCR with Read IRIS and scan images with Photoshop Elements.  BUT, HP Solution Center cannot find the scanner.  HP support is no help at all.

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

Hi,

I run an HP PhotoSmart C8180 AiO connected wiredly to my SoHo network.

PC's and servers are various in OS (Win vis through 8, Win Server 2003 through 2012 and Linux.

I enjoy the printer for a few years now, with my only complaint being the issue addressed in this thread.

I usually curicimstsnce it byh removing the software and the printer definition  and reinsyall the software then locating the printer.

 

What I have not learned yet, not here, not on other posts I looked into, is the answer to the question: What causes the issue to arise? If there is anyone to answer that question may be we can prevent this from happening. Actually it might help me choosing HP again for my next to come printer.

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

I followed these instructions exactly and still I'm getting the "No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will close now." message when I try to open HP Solution Center.  HP Photosmart Essential opens with no problems.

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

Good advice mate and it was shown as 'manual'. However, this didn't solve it. Through HP support site I found that I also needed to check the driver HPZ12 too, in the services list under standard (on MS Vista).

Re: No HP devices have been detected. HP Solution Center will now close

Solution Center stopped working after being fine for several years.  I never found a solution in this thread or on other websites.  After upgrading from XP to Win7 I thought, "What the heck." and reinstalled the HP software downloaded from the HP website.  Lo and behold, it now works with one minor problem.  HP PhotoSmart Essentials does not show all the photos in a folder.  Which ones show up changes from use to use.  Official HP support continues to be lousy.  We should not have to rely solely on user groups.
