Hello, @alenis - Greetings!

 

Thanks for accessing the HP Support Forums for extra support! I see that you are experiencing trouble while scanning after updating to Sierra. I will do my best to assist you with this issue 🙂

 

I would suggest you use “HP Easy Scan” so that you can scan from your computer. HP Easy Scan is a free app from the App Store with tools to scan documents and photos to a Mac running OS X 10.9 or later. Please install it here: http://apple.co/2lsPpwU 

 

Also, check http://hp.care/2d75fhX to get detailed instructions to scan and also to change the settings while scanning.

 

Please let me know whether that works for you. Thank you!

Cheers 🙂

Hi

 

I've Tried with the Easy Scan Software, 

 

I' ve downloaded  the drivers from this link : https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1888?locale=it_IT

 

and I've installed these, but it doesn't work.

 

El Capitan look the printer but not the scanner. El Capitan doesnt' find any scanner

 

and here,  https://support.apple.com/it-it/HT201465

 

I see that there is no support for the scan in El Capitan for the HP Laserjet M1522n

@alenis

It looks like you were interacting with @Dvortex, but he is out for the day & I'll be glad to help you out, 

I'm the Riddle_Decipher & I'm at your service. 

 

I understand the printer doesn't support the El Capitan version of MacOS, however, here's the workaround:

 

Please download and install the HP Easy Scan App to see if that will allow you to scan from the ADF. Use the HP Easy Scan App. 

  • HP Easy Scan 

    If an item is loaded into the ADF, HP Easy Scan automatically defaults to the ADF as the source. To manually select the ADF, open the Presets menu, select Edit Settings, then select Document Feeder from the Source menu. 

  • Apple Image Capture 

    In the Scan Mode menu, select Document Feeder. 

  • HP Scan 

    If an item is loaded into the ADF, HP Scan automatically defaults to the ADF as the source. To manually select the ADF, click Scan, click Show Details, select Document from the Type menu, then select Document Feeder from the Source menu. 

 

I also suggest using the Apple Scan while you wait for the HP software to be updated. You can use the following link to confirm your printer is still compatible with your OS: Printer and scanner software for MacOS Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, and Mavericks

Mac Basics: Using a scanner 

For related links, please click here. 

Also, try installing this firmware upgrade to fix this issue: Click here to download

 

Let me know how that works out, keep me in the loop and Good luck! 😉

Hi,

 

I've installed Easy Scan; but the software doesn't see the scanner; in the menù where there is the scanner list is empty.

 

I've installed the firmware

 

and the printer works, but not the scanner.

 

in the list of the supported device by El Capitan, I see my HP Laserjet M1522n, but only as a printer and not as a scanner

Hi,

 

as @Riddle_Decipher is out of the office, I'm replying to you.

 

Sure, please let us know if that works. 

 

The main reason why the scanning is not working is due to the lack of the full featured drivers. 

 

Hope it works. All the best! 🙂

Hi team

 

I' ve found two solutions here:

 

 

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/LaserJet-Printing/HP-M1522nf-MFP-No-Scanning-Support-OS-X-Yosemite-SOL...

 

 

the first  is to change the name version of IOS, but it can be dangerous;

 

the secondo is to install in another way the upgrade of HP Driver.

 

here the actions of the second:

 

1. Download the HP-LaserJet-M1522-MFP-series_v1.5.0.DMG file.

2. Double click to open.

3. Drag and drop the HP LJ M1522 MFP series v1.5.0.mpkg file to desktop. (Very important)

4. Right click on the copied file → Show package contents → Contents

5. Open distribution.dist file in a text editor.

6. Locate and delete this line → <installation-check script="pm_install_check();"/>

7. Save the file. Now try to install .

 

 

 

thanks
