LaserJet M1120 MFP / OSX 10.7.3 scan problem

I can't get serious to try to set up a HP Laserjet M1120 MFP device on an i7 iMac running OSX Lion. The printer driver installs fine preferences > printing & scanning. The printing of the iMac and from another computer in network. However, the scanning feature is nowhere and I can't operate the iMac or the other computer. I tried with Acrobat X Pro, Preview and image transfer applications.

OK, so I downloaded the software HP Laserjet full feature and driver here, just to notice that I met more problems. When you run the HP Laserjet M1120 Series.pkg package, the HP app Installation Wizard stops with a popup that says "you must have administrative Preobrajensky to configure a device. It is a little surprising given that I just entered my admin password, in addition to the fact that there is only one user account on the computer, which obviously has administrator rights. In addition, it seems that the installer actually does not install the HP software package, because I can find apps like Director of HP and HP Scan in the Applications folder. Needless to say, running these apps only results in a popup saying: ' no scanners are located. " Acrobat displays the name of the printer in the file > Create > PDF from Scanner dialog box, but hitting the Scan button results in a popup saying "error while interacting with scanner: the selected scanner was not found."

I uninstalled the HP software with the option of uninstalling and re-installed. I also tried the "Reset printing system" option in OSX preferences > print & scan > right click on the list of printers. So... what gives? Is it possible for me to check if the scanner really works or if it will be a HW problem? Or this driver is not compatible with the current Lion OSX (I 10.7.3)? IMO the USB connection should be good since I am able to print normally.

Thanks in advance.


The driver that you have installed is intended for Mac OS X 10.5 or lower and is not compatible with Lion.

Compatibility:       Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5, Mac OS X

Officially, the model M1120 is partially compatible with Lion and provide functionality to print only by the software provided via Apple Software Update...

Try the following solution, although I can't guarantee its operation and may not be stable as expected:

  1. Go into System Preferences > print & scan, select the Ant to M1120 printer then click on the sign - to remove.
  2. Following the installation of the software feature full skiping the installation wizard until the installation is complete.
  3. In order to provide good permissions to complete the Setup Wizard, perform the following steps:
    1. Open a Terminal in the Utilities folder
    2. In the Terminal, type "sudo" (with space).
    3. Locate the HP installation wizard to the folder Applications/HP LaserJet Software
    4. Right click (CTRL + left on the Mac keyboard) the HP installation wizard and choose "view the contents of the package.
    5. Open the "Happy" folder, and then click the "Mac OS" folder. It should contain the Unix executable file HP installation wizard.
    6. Drag the HP (Unix executable) Setup Wizard in the Terminal and press to validate.
      Terminal will ask for the password of the user.
  4. After writing the password Enter key press.
  5. Now, follow the Setup Wizard steps to complete.

    Hi ApolloWZ,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    In the meantime, I found the solution to my problem, so I thought I'd share it here for others.

    I found the answer here:

    I will cut & paste the answer below, in which case the link above doesn't work at some point:

    (1) on the computer target under the normal user account, press Start, in the search box type services.msc. Right click on the program that appears and select "Run as Administrator". Enter your user password or click on next to go to the UAC popup, if necessary.
    (2) locate the service called "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and double-click it.
    3) click the connection tab, and then change this service to log on under a Local System account. Click here to allow the service to interact with desktop. And then click OK.
    (4) reboot (or if you really don't want to restart & know what you're doing, you can just stop & restart the WIA service twice)

    See you soon,.

  • Scan works only on Laserjet M1132 MFP

    I have a problem with scanning on Laserjet M1132 MFP. Print and copy works without problem. But when I try to analyse the scanning application crashes. It says busy and does nothing.

    My OS is Windows 7 64 bit, I tried to update the firmware, but that did not help with the problem. When I try to scan it says busy. In fact, you hear as if the scanner tried to analyze something, but the software does not move and repeat that he is busy.

    No clue as to what could be the problem?

    I found the problem. I had the printer connected to a USB cable for the previous printer (Laserjet 1020) and did not use the original supplied with the M1132MFP.  After I plugged the original cable scanner has started working.

  • HP Color LaserJet M477fnw MFP: Scan to computer button disappeared

    Hello, I saw similar comments of the same issue, but none with a solution.  The closest is this:

    Problem: We have a new printer that we have Setup.  During the installation process, on the touch screen, provided the message to "Scan to Computer".  We used the option to make sure it worked and took part in the computer we wanted.  We restarted the printer, and the option is now missing!  The option "Scan to Computer" has completely disappeared.  Where it was once a touchscreen button / option, no longer exists.

    Printer: HP Color LaserJet M477fnw MFP

    OS: Mac OS X 10.8.xx

    I downloaded the firmware update, but that doesn't work either.  I tried using the verification of updates of the touch screen of the printer, it can never connect.  I connected to the internet, I connected directly on a hard line, still no connection.  I literally just bought this printer yesterday, with a 2-year service plan, drove an hour to the next closest store that had it in stock and it gives me nothing else problems.

    I have unplugged and waited a minute.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and the software from my computer.

    I'm out of ideas.

    Hello @gfrd3489

    If you talked about scanning to the icon post from work or option after pressing the icon of the scan on the printer itself that one has been dropped by HP since she had so many questions with that like on some devices will only scan flat and not of ADF.

    If you notice you still have other options such as scanning to USB key, scan to e-mail or scan in network on the printer folder of are next to the HP scanning app on the PC for windows and mac

    Devices most recent are not supposed to have this option on the first place and the firmware and normal updates which will remove devices more alumni who have it

    There were a few M477 which were sold to vendors when it first came out which was which, but as soon as he gets the first update will be deleted

    hope that clarifies the question

    Hi @Herza,

    I see by your post that you would like to know how to scan from the control panel of the printer to send. I would like to help you today. Please select "Acceptable Solution", if these measures help to solve this problem. Thank you.

    This model is not the function of scan from the control panel. You must use the HP scanner on a computer to scan software.

    This document provides the steps for scanning on Windows 7. HP LaserJet multifunction printers - how to scan (Windows 7). You can use the HP scanning software to scan a document and then send it to the email.

    But you can install an APP on the printer itself called "Scan to Email".

    Once you register with, you can add the APP.

    Click on add a device under the devices tab.

    Put in the claim code you printed to register and add the printer.

    Click the Services tab, then click on the sign - on the right side.

    Select your printer from the drop-down list.

    Then scroll to the application called "Scan to Email".

    Click on add to my printable cards.

    Now you should have an icon on the screen of the printer under APPS, called "Scan to Email".

    I hope this helps. If you appreciate my efforts, please click on the "Thumbs up" button below. Thank you.

    Full features software is available for Windows 7, this is no longer provided for Windows 8.

    A basic set of drivers as offered only provide basic scanning capabilities by using operating system utilities, such doesn't offer a scanning HP utility and allow a single file of scanning.

    Try the 3rd party PAN scan utility below, it offers the PDF and the digitization of several page and offered as a freeware:


    This app you can prior multiple pages scan save the PDF file.

    could you help me with this facility or how can I scan.

    Thanks - sameer


    Based on the following link, only the driver supports up to 10.7:

    First of all, I would like to make it clear: I do not work for any hardware vendor or software. Your printer worked perfectly for a few years or even decades, and now it won't do nothing or very little about due to a new operating system. Microsoft, Apple will never say "WARNING: using this new product, your existing hardware may NOT work at all. They say that their new product blah blah will... They promise everything and then put all the misfortune, blame for hardware vendors. I believe that the development of new products is a lot cheaper than the technical support of the former products and each product must have a life cycle and must die loudly or quietly operating systems will kill our faster hardware. Many people simply upgrade to a love of the 'cutting edge', never know and/or research what will work the investments existing at home or not.

    Just my 2 cents.
