Scanner set up for HP Officejet J4680 All-In-One

I'm trying to set up to scan from the HP OfficejetJ4680  All-In-one. I do not know what software I need to download to my Acer laptop to get the scan function to work on the HP Officejet

Hi Susieque,

 

The best option, if it's available for your Operating System (Windows 7, etc.), is to download and install the Full Feature Software for your printer.   The FFS includes the scanning option.

 

Here are the instructions:

=========================================================================

 In many cases, you can (re)install the Full Feature Software for your printer to enhance its capabilities.  The HP Solution Center is an integrated part of the FFS.

 

(Re)install the basic driver or Full Feature Software:

Drivers control hardware connected to the computer (wired or wireless).

Software controls the programs that interact with the User.

 

  • Go to the top of the forum page to Support and Drivers
  • Enter your Printer Model information, and then go to Software and Drivers...
  • Enter your Operating System in the Drop-down menu...  Scroll down
  • Look for category Driver - Product Installation Software
  • Select the appropriate Basic Driver or Full Feature Software – if available for your printer Save the *.exe installation package on your computer -
  • NOTE the name and the location - the *.exe file will likely save to "Downloads “Install the Software / Driver installation package:  It will be named *.exe – the package will most likely be located in the Downloads folder.  If you have ‘Admin’ control, you may highlight the package and “double-click” to install it, else Right-Click, Select ‘run as Administrator’ and install.

NOTE:  There is sometimes a lot of information at the printer’s website: manuals, how-to pages, and alerts for your printer.  Be sure to take an extended look at what’s available.

==========================================================================

 

I hope this helps!

[ Edited ]

Susieque and Mdford,

 

You are welcome!  I am glad you found the software for your printer!

 

Here is something extra that you should look up now that you have the Full Feature Software on your computer.

 

The onboard help file for the software, accessed through the HP Solution Center, is usually pretty thorough, even more so than the manuals provided with the printer (or at the printer's website).

 

How to access the Help File:

HP Solution Center > Help (at the bottom of HPSC) > Help for Your Device > Search >

enter any "keyword" to get started

 

For example:  The information about Scan in the onboard help file might explain scan settings and trouble spots, including how to adjust the specifications, how to use OCR software, what to do about lines, dots, streaks, and suggestions on how to improve image quality.

 

 

 

I hope this helps!
