100 HP LaserJet color MFP M175: scan to the PDF Format


While using the scanner of HP LaserJet 100 color MFP M175a I don't get an option to save the file in PDF format. I use a scanner through Windows Fax and Scan. Kindly help

Hey @HBootwala,

Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

I see you are trying to scan PDF documents of your 100 Laserjet color MFP M175a printer to your computer for Windows 8.1. I can help you with that.

To start, make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector. Once that is done, scan, you want to scan using HP Scan, rather than Windows Fax and Scan. You can download the latest version of HP Scan by clicking this link. Once installed when you need to scan, you can open the program and select this option to save your document in PDF format.

Please let me know if this solves your problem by clicking on accept solution. If you still have questions, please let know what happened during the installation of your software and I'll be better able to help you. If not, have a great day!

  • 100 HP LaserJet color MFP M175: forgotten password on HP LaserJet 100 color MFP M175NW


    I came to the community after a call to the heldpesk.

    My problem is the following. I have a HP LaserJet 100 color MFP M175nw which is configurable via web interface. The problem is that I don't remember not the password to access the web configuration.

    I called the HP helpline to ask for help, but because my printer is no longer under warranty, they can't give me support (or must I pay). The girl asks me to post in the forum, and that I will get an answer in this way.

    So I came to you and ask for help .

    Can someone help me how to do?

  • TurboCAD Deluxe 15. impossible to find my new 100 HP Laserjet color MFP M175nw

    Hi, I have bought and installed my new HP Laserjet 100 color MFP M175nw but have found a problem with the printing of drawings in TurboCAD Deluxe 15.

    If I try and print a drawing to the printer icon, a warning of TurboCAD appears saying 'Please select a default printer for your system' and nothing is displayed.

    If I try to click on 'File' > 'Print' there is also nothing that passes.

    I have HPPSdr and that gives me no information. Can anyone help please since this is an important issue for me.

    Thank you very much


    Hi Phil,

    If you are able to print from other application programs then the question has with the autocad program. You want to call for help with this issue.

  • 100 HP LaserJet color MFP M175nw

    Hi - happened to have the printer connected via ethernet to wifi; am able to print without problem; attempt to analysis of the results in the message "scanner communication cannot be established. Make sure that your product is under tension blabla. »

    Anyone have any good ideas?

  • 100 HP LaserJet color MFP M175nw stops responding

    I set up my printer for direct printing and printing in cloud and all was good. The printer is a little more than a month, bought new, not a refurb.


    (1) standby mode does not seem to awaken the printer when I sent something from home, so I have disabled all sleep modes.

    (2) black ink cartridge error (I wanted to give you all the details, but I'm sure that this is not an impact on the printer)

    (3) the wireless network, the printer is connected to stops working wireless and the blue light is flashing on the printer (wireless to the router is dead for all wireless devices)

    (4) at some point after all the above occurs, the printer stops responding. Nothing will be printed, I can't make a copy and all the buttons on the front panel do not respond, except for the input/output button that I need to turn it off and the fire back up and then I can printing/copying again.

    Thanks for any help, I hope that I have provided all the necessary information. It doesn't seem to be any specific length of time before the printer ends like this, but he does it for about a week and I'm just starting to write some info that I can just when and why he's doing this

    Thanks for the reply, this weekend I have reset the router, updated its firmware and set everything back to normal. All works well again.

    to answer a few questions in case anyone else gets on this post:

    (1) a PC XP and a laptop Mac 10.7 plug directly on the printer printing becomes necessary - usually used as a printer wireless for co-collegues/customers

    (2) I can't check the printer info now, but the router has an IP static 4

    (3) it is a linksys wrt54G v8

    (4) I don't remember do the update of the firmware for the printer after I had installed the unit earlier

    (5) printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet

    (6) Yes, power on the printer of recycling solves the problem temporarily. When I turn the printer back on, the printing start immediately.

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry I don't see the answer until I played with the router, but I lost the connection on my laptop via the same router so I thought that the question should be in the router. A reset is complete, update and reconfiguration has put me at how everything worked at my first installation of the printer. Thank you for your request

  • Photosmart premium C309g-m: lack of disk space when scanning documents in pdf format for PC

    When you try to scan documents to pdf format on my computer (connected via a wired network), including multiple pages, the throws of sweeping to the top of this error message 'More disk space - remove unused files to free disk space' the error code below is 4, [(3,11,0)].

    I seem to be OK with a single page at low resolution in B & W - 150 dpi but not more than a few pages to this resolution, or even a single page to a higher resolution and the error message is thrown upwards and will not save the file. Clearly I'm not memory hard drive because there is a lot of space and I tried recording on multiple disks.

    If I scan everything straight to a USB stick plugged into the printer it works OK but scan documents as a picture and crops, more it only scans one page and then save it.

    I tried to install a patch from this forum question http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id/Scan but it made no difference and my windows 7 was not an upgrade of vista

    Hope someone can help with this

    Hi Oscardod,

    You are welcome!

    I guess one inadvertently lead solution, is always a solution! Laughing out loud.

    I'm glad that everything is fine.

    We have the option to save the file scanned in PDF format if we use the HP printer Assistant application (this is part of the HP printer software)

    The printer is not compatible with Snow Leopard, it is supported on Lion (10.7) or later versions.

    You can find the system requirements below:


    The update of the firmware utilitywas not desinged for your operating system and therefore does not work on it.

    As the connectewd printer to a network, follow these steps to update firmware directly from the menu of the printer:
