When downloading HP LJ M1522nf from original disc on IMac, Scanner not available

HP LaserJet M1522nf

Had to erase IMac system and reinstall all software. When installing HP software, the printer now works, but the scanner doesn't. Can someone help?

Hi,

A Mac OS X Full Feature Software for your printer was provided till Lion (10.7) or earlier versions, starting from Mountain Lion (10.8) or any later version scanning is no longer supported, only fax and print capabilties are available for your product as listed by below chart:

https://support.apple.com/en-il/HT201465

 

As a reference see below document:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-laserjet-m1522-multifunction-printer-series/3442750/model/34...

 

You may try the 3rd part VueScan application which seems to support your scanner with no additional drivers:

As I said before, the scanner worked just fine until a few weeks ago when I downloaded Hi Sierra and then had to erase my system and reinstall original software Lion. Then, I upgraded to Sierra. 

 

So, if it worked then, it should work now.

 

But, thanks anyway for responding.
