  • 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

  • LaserJet M1319f: HP Laserjet M1319f MFP Scaner not ongoing analysis pages.


    I use HP Laserjet M1319f MFP all in one printer software & scan.

    Already installed in windows 7, scanner function works, it will scan multiple documents in a pdf or a file.

    But now I have windows installed 8.1. I have install the printer / download site Scaneer software & firmware as suggested by HP.

    Print and scan work ok, but not able to scan the document in a single file, it will not ask as previously you want to scan another page or not? is there so all settings / software available that I can do the continuous scan in a single file.

    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.

  • LaserJet M3035xs MFP Scan because of the network folder

    Hello. I had a question about the scan to network folder option on our M3035. At the same time, I had this put option in place and works very well with all our Windows 7 computers. The hard drive in the Copier has failed and had to be replaced that erased all our settings. I used the wizard to add folders to the copier to scan network and even though files test ok at installing any of my test scans are appearing in the record. I was getting an error in a first time on it is not unable to check access I went into the settings using the IP address and added my credentials in this way. After this step, I was able to scan, but nothing appears in the record. HP wants $1,000 to get out because we are no longer under warranty.  Any assistance that you can offer is greatly appreciated!


    Thank you for responding. My Info was valid and set up the same way it was before. I decided to take a different route and put all the files on the server through the server to scan and save. That seems to work for now.

  • LaserJet M1212nf MFP: Scanning does not... Once again.

    You are God * beep * serious? I've lost my patience with this thing. Used to scan via USB, but the part on the printer pulled plug and pulling repeatedly. Then connected by Ethernet cable. Would not scan. It turns out that the printer must be plugged into a wall outlet instead of the power bar. Very well.

    And now, it does not analyse new, but this time I literally haven't touched it since the last time once I plugged it in the wall. The device is in offline mode on my computer but can still print documents, but it won't scan. I checked the power cord of the printer and it is not loose at each end. All my drivers must be current.

    Well, this should allow you to analyze:

    1. If the printer is connected via USB cable to your PC, delete.
    2. Click on start and open devices and printers.
    3. Right-click on any icon of your printer listed.
    4. Click on remove the instrument.
    5. Repeat for all other icons of your printer listed.
    6. Download and install the latest drivers by clicking on this link.

    Please let me know the results after doing the above.

    Well, I have solved the problem by forcing a sweep of windows & scan fax.  I found this as a work-around and I just try the scanner then, and it worked.  For now, the question has corrected itself, if all goes well it stays this way!

  • HP LaserJet 100 - scan multiple pages to a pdf file

    The HP LaserJet 100 supports scanning through the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) which is located on the upper part of the printer?  I want to be able to scan several pages placed in the charger to a single PDF file.

    Thank you

  • 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.
