Scanning with a M1212nf MFP

Is there a driver available for my m1212nf mfp separate scanning? I have just connected to Windows 8, and it will not scan? I had XP before and think that I had to download a separate driver? Best Buy told me to uninstall and load your set of drivers for windows 8 on your part, I did this and still no. SCANNING Argggg - please help, thank you CWL

I'm sorry you have a problem with the scanning. You get an error message when you try to scan?

Run the doctor print and scan and check the results.

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I noticed your post about how you can't scan with your MFP HP Laserjet Pro 177fw on your Mac. And I'm happy to discuss this issue scan for you!

    To confirm that the hardware of the printer is functional, you are able to make a copy with the glass of the scanner of the printer?

    1. load the document on the scanner glass according to the indicators on the product.

    2. close the scanner.

    3. on the product control panel, press the button number of Copies.

    4. Select the number of copies.

    5. press the black start copy button or the button color launch copy to start copying.

  • Scanning with HP 1536dnf MFP in Yosemite

    Our office uses a MFP from HP 1536dnf for scanning and printing.  In the past, I was able to connect wirelessly to the device using my MacBook Air both print and scan using the HP software.  Today, HP Scan says that the printer is "unavailable".  I can always print wireless.

    Last week, I upgraded my OS to Yosemite.  What is the likely cause of the problem?  Is the work around posted here ( the only solution?  (EDIT: tried that, none of them does not seem to work - Mac does not recognize the device as a scanner - at least not wireless.)


    Currently, it is the only solution available for OS X Yosemite,

    First go to Applications > Hewlett-Packard and follow the option Unisntall, older drivers can prebent obtain current drivers.

    Once you are done restart your Mac and add the printer in Printers & Scanners.

    Finally, click on the Apple icon and select software update.

    Click the Store menu and then reload the Page to see the latest updates, don't forget to install any update HP or Apple listed and try to scan the image through Image Capture.

    Please let me know if this is useful,


  • Problem with scanning with Laserjet M1212nf all-in-one printer network

    I installed the drivers for my Laserjet M1212nf connected on my computer laptop 64 bit of Windows 7, but it seems like just a printer (in devices and printers). I can't scan from the laptop (I get the error "no TWAIN Device Installed").

    The figure (and work) scan function if I connect to the printer via the USB port and install these drivers, but my laptop does not usually reside in the same room as the printer.

    The scan function installs and runs correctly on a Windows XP desktop computer also connected to my network.

    Note: I've never used the scanner before.  Someone told me that I cannot use the analysis feature if I use a USB cable.

  • M1212nf MFP - scanning is extremely slow

    I recently bought machine M1212nf MFP. Everything works well except the scan. No matter if I scan "with" or "without" HP scanning software is extremely slow. With setting the quality to 300 dpi in color, it is fine enough, it takes several tens of seconds to get the image to my PC. With 600 dpi setting, it takes several minutes and sometimes it does not and I have to turn the printer power off and power on. With up to 1200 dpi setting, it takes up to 30 minutes to scan the image and in most cases it ends any without indicating any error - it freezes just and the printer indicates that the communication is in progress.

    Is this a normal behvaior of M1212nf MFP? This means that I can't use higher image qualities? I checked the wiring configuration and network tha and everything seems ok. I have the printer connected to the wifi ASUS router so I use the LAN to print and scan. Any other data transfer go well on the network, so I guess that the network is not the problem.

    I bought this 'multifunctional' machine to replace my old printer and scanner with a single device. But so far, the scanner is unsuable for me because of its extremely low performance .

    Any ideas? Any tips? Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Color LaserJet MFP M177fw Pro: Scan to Mac with Color LaserJet MFP M177fw Pro

    I bought and the latest drivers from hp installation a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw. are downloaded and installed.

    I have a Mac and you connect wirelessly to the printer, which works very well. The Mac runs Yosemite 10.10.3

    My question is the digitization. There is no option for scanning anywhere, not on the small screen of the printer not on the usefulness of the printer or any where.

    Summer spend hours online to find an answer and is now well bored.

    I have already reset the disc printing, verified and repaired systems. Can not scan even with the options offered on the forums of hp using Apple caprure or preview. It seems that all these options include versions of OS X prior to Yosemite?

    Hi @sa9494,

    I see that you have problems with scanning. I will definitely do my best to help you.

    Check the name of the driver that is installed by the printer. Make sure that it shows just the name of the printer.
    Click on the Apple menu, click System Preferences. Click on Printers & Scanners, highlight the name of the printer on the left side and right side of the screen it should show the name of the printer. (Color LaserJet MFP M177fw Pro)

    If the full name of the printer is not correctly, delete and add the printer name back from the list. Click on the sign - to remove the driver and then click on the + sign to add the driver might have to drop-down list to select the name of the printer to add a click.

    Here is a screenshot of what it should look like. You have the scanning through top tab?

    I have also included a document for HP printers - scan with HP Software in OS X v10.10 Yosemite.

    Scanning ports is not open on the router to the origin of this problem. You can contact the router company to verify and to open these ports 9220/9500/427 on the router.

    Connect the printer with the USB cable, to see if you have the same results.

    Let me know.

  • LaserJet M1212nf MFP: How can I download a driver for Laserjet. The site seems to be an endless loop

    I try to use my Laserjet M1212nf MFP as a scanner.  I'm trying to download the driver so that I can do.  Currently, I can only print and copy.  When I use the hp Web site, it asks for my product, and then when I select it I'm directed to a picture of him and it is said below download drivers that takes me back to find my product.  How do the driver?  How can I use my Laserjet as a scanner?

    I found the HP folder and was able to scan.  It has not put an icon on my desktop as did my previous installations.

    When I talked to support the HP told me they had technical difficulties with the Web site.  They site immerses you in an endless loop.  If you need support you can call them direct to the 1-800-474-6836.

  • Help! LaserJet M1212nf MFP


    I have HP LaserJet M1212nf MFP AllInOne baought ricently.

    when im trying to scan, if its with the charger or glass, is comeout as Mirrowview page scanned.

    when im asking him to pruduce as a MirrorView is just won't come out.

    I have updated and softwere of hp.

    im a 32-bit Windows 7 user.

    you have a solotion for this problem?


    It is a software problem known with the alignment from right to the left of the preview of the scan, it only affects the preview screen , but the analysis results will be as expected.

    Once the mirror preview appears. do not duplicate the preview but complement the analytical work... the results of the analysis will be as expected.

    To completely resolve the problem, you can uninstall the HP software, change your PC Non-Unicode affecting English and reinstall the HP software. Then the HP software will appear as English and not to see him get an overview of the analysis as a mirror image.
