scanner not working

I bought a HP deskjet 3070a all-in-one scanner/printer

 

I have a HP Pavilion computer based on Windows 7 Home

 

The printer works fine, but I cannot get the scanner to communicate with any computer, either through USB or ethernet/WiFi

 

Diagnostic utility says both WIA and TWAIN have problems OR are not present

 

Can I get these drivers and install them manually?

 

Neither the installation disc, NOR the downloaded software fixes the problem

 

 

I reinstalled several times the software, with the same result

 

HELP because I need to scan!!!!

Re: scanner not working

Hi ivfagent, 

 

Have you tried installing the printer on a differnet computer to see if you have the same issue?

Re: scanner not working

Dear sir

 

Yes, I have 3 computers, all without scanning possibility!

 

The printer actually finds the computers, but is unable to communicate with them

 

The HP utility gives an error both for WIA AND TWAIN drivers.

Re: scanner not working

Hi ivfagent, 

 

How do you have the printer connected to your computers?

 

Do you have the same issue when you have the printer connected USB to a computer?

Re: scanner not working

Hello!

 

Nothing happens either with USB connection or WiFi

 

all 3 computers

 

The scanner works in 'copy' mode

 

Any suggestions?

Re: scanner not working

Hi ivfagent, 

 

Uninstall the printer from the Add/Remove programs, and then restart the computer. Download the Full Feature software from the following link. Install the printer using USB, and let me know if you are able to scan?

Re: scanner not working

Dear sir

 

I did as you suggested but no luck - the scanner doesn't scan and the diagnostic utility still says WIA and TWAIN missing

 

I can't believe it's the printer since it copies perfectly

 

any more suggestions - can I check the WIA and TWAIN are present?
