How do I get my hp1205 psc to scan? ( yes, I have been to the hp website.)

Have you installed the HP Software or are you using another scanning software?

What O/S?

win xp.

My drivers are upto date. Where is the scan button on the programme (which programme am I looking for?)

not sure ;but do you have a hp director suite in your programs? i beleive you can scan and carry out other tasks within the suite.

Yes, now I remember. Along time ago I used to use hp director. Can I get it from the hp site?

should be on the installation disk that came with your printer, however software and driver can be downloaded click here this is for xp,

Thanks guys, the director was there but under a different name so I didn't recgnise.

But when I press the scan button it comes up with device not connected; even though it is and printing fine.

Must be a hardware problem

No its a Hp software problem, I had the 1205 nothing but trouble particulary the scan side.

I have since sent it to, hopefully a suitable land fill site, must admit my health has improved, i am no longer addicted to paracetamol and my hair is growing back.

I was continually uninstalling removing any traces of the 1205 and then reinstalling the software, then it would work for a while, only to have to repeat this over again if i wanted to use the scanner.

Hp didn,t/wouldn't solve this issue and seems from what you say still haven't. You have my sympathy, hope you find the cure.
