HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

[ Edited ]

The printer works fine to print but it does not scan.

 

When I select scan on the officejet 6500 wireless it  says, "SCAN MENU SELECT COMPUTER"  No keys on the keypad work only "OK". When I select OK it says "No Scan Option - refer to device documentation to troubleshoot. Press OK."

 

Operating system: Windows 7

Wireless connection to printer

Downloaded and installed oj6500ve709_basic_14 driver/download

 

Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian)  in advance for your assistance.

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

Since you have only installed the basic driver you will not be able to scan from the computer, so i suggest you to install full feature software, please click on the below web link to download the software:

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software11/COL31304/mp-77752-2/OJ6500vE709_Full_14.exe

 

Click on save.

 

Save to desktop.

 

 

Once the download completes, double click on downloaded file it will prompts you to RUN or OPEN, Click on RUN it will extract the file and then Click on INSTALL. It  starts the installation at the middle of the installation it will promts you to connect the USB cable then only connect the USB cable.
NOTE: while installation do not connect the printer  USB cable to the computer until it prompts you to connect.

Once the download completes, double click on downloaded file it will prompts you to RUN or OPEN, Click on RUN it will extract the file and then Click on INSTALL. It  starts the installation at the middle of the installation it will promts you to connect the USB cable then only connect the USB cable.

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

Сегодня я поменял принтер на новый (старый отработал 7 дней).

Проблема не решилась.

При нажатии SCAN принтер не видит компьютер.

Я установил FULL 14 версию. Скачал с оф. сайта.

Во время инсталяции я заметил одну не понятную вещь.

На коробке написана модель CB057A, а во время инсталяции я заметил (не помню где),

что программа написала CB8... . Что это значит?

Может в этом все наши роблемы???

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

I have done this multiple times.  It works for a while and then it will no longer scan.  Why do I need to download the same driver every time?

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

I am getting the same error messages as the other posters.

 

I'm using an iMac, Mac OS X with an Officejet 6500 Wireless.

 

My husband set up the printer -- how can I tell which driver he installed?

 

Thanks!

I am having the same problem. I install the driver listed above. It works ok for 3 or 4 scans, then the printer loses everything and tells me to consult the computer documentation again. It essentially wants me to download the driver again.

 

HP really needs to fix this. It is unacceptable...

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

Same problem forever on my XP computer. Always had to start up the Solution Center and scan from there; button on computer would not work.

 

Now I have a new Windows 7 64 bit computer, and software will not install. So how do I scan?

 

Does anybody at HP care about our problems?

Re: HP 6500 Wireless does not scan

Printer set up failed to complete. Again and again and again. I had this same exact problem when I first installed the printer on my XP computer, and spent a total of about 5 hours on the phone with tech support before finally getting it installed. Now on my new Windows 7 64 bit computer, after downloading the file and trying to install, your software will not install the printer. I've been able to print ever since setting up my new computer, but it sure would be nice to be able to scan. IF I HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER PRINTER, I GUARANTEE I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HP.
