Re: how do I activate scan to computer

I really need to use the scan feature on my printer both wireless and wired.  Please assist...

 

I keep getting a message "Scan to computer is not activated".  I followed your solutions to the previous users however it is not working.  "Your computer is not list as a available on the printer's control panel. Restart the computer...."  I have the computer connected to via usb to the printer because I couldn't get it to work wireless.

Re: how do I activate scan to computer

I can double click Manage Scan to Computer and a window open, Manage Scan to Computer is there, but it does nothing with a double click or r-click >Open, it seems like an icon that does nothing and is connected to nothing.

Re: How do I activate scan to computer. Photosmart plus 210

Hi, I used to use this function all the time. It appears the option has disappeared and now I cannot Activate Scan to Computer as this is not available. I can only use the scan from pc. The page layout has changed and only two option are available now. I have tried to reload the CD again but this made no difference. Please can you help me get this option back? Many thanks, kind regards. Michael

Re: How do I activate scan to computer. Photosmart plus 210

I have the same issue, Scan to Printer is no longer showing when I click the HP printer icon.  I bought this printer about 7 months ago and this was working just fine up until a few days ago.  Tried re-loading the software to no avial.  Please help, as I really use the scan to printer feature allot.

My solution was to delete the printer under Devices and Printers, and to then click Add a printer, and it reinstalled the device. I didn't have to dig out CD or anything and it was a fast fix. Much faster than all the research I had to do.
