HP Solution Center stopped working and HP Print and Scan Doctor cannot find my OJ4680

HP Solution Center came installed on my HP G60 notebook with Windows 7 premium 64 bit.  It suddenly stopped working--it says it cannot run because the device installation is not complete.  If I open HP Sup0ort Assistant it says the OJ4680 is ready and it is designated as the default printer in Printers and Devices but when I try to run HP Print and Scan Doctor it cannot find it--it can only find OJ4500 which I use when I'm in my second home.  Please help me fix this as at this point I can't print or scan. 

Thanks for the help and quick response.  I haven't tried your solution yet because before I received your instructions I updated the drivers again and it appears to be working though I've had a message since then that I couldn't scan because my device was offline which was not true as I had just printed a document.  I used HP Print and Scan doctor and followed the steps which included turning the device off and unplugging it for 60 seconds.  I can now copy, print and scan but I still have the yellow triangles with exclamation points on both my PC and all in one.  I'm not sure I want to do more at this point since everything is working well at the moment. BTW my laptop is set for automatic updates by HP and Microsoft, why didn't they keep this problem from occurring?

  • HP solutions center stopped working for photosmart d110a

    After using HP Solution Center (HPSC) for scanning on my D110a via wireless connection to my Win8 laptop (all current win8 updates installed) for many months it just stopped working. The printer is recognized in HPSC  but after selecting the Scan Picture button it times out with error "The scan cannot be performed because another computer is using the networked device." The extended error informations is 8, 0, [(18, -2147467259)].  I have downloaded, uninstalled and reinstalled HPSC three times and rebooted the pc and the printer each time to try and fix the problem without success.  I can see the printer in the Windows Control Panel and can print to it from all networked computers in the house, just no scanning. 

    Hello again DocRocks,
    I have a few other suggestions that we can try.
    This may take some time to get all the ducks in a row but I think it may prove to be successful for us.
    First off, please make sure that you have the printer power cable connected directly to a wall outlet and not a power bar/strip. Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for HP products in general. Please click on the following link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
    Once the printer is connected to the wall outlet, please do a proper shut down with the use of the on/off button.  This will do a semi power reset on the printer .
    I am going to give you a link for Uninstalling the Printer Software.  Do a complete uninstall of the software and drivers and once it is complete, please restart the computer.
    When the computer is back on, disable any firewalls or anti virus protection.  We don't want anything getting in the way when we do the new installation.
    The next link i have for you is the HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers.  Save this file to the Desktop of the computer so that it creates its own icon.  This will make it easy to find when the download is complete.
    While the download is taking place, we are going to move over to the printer.  On the front panel of the printer use the right arrow key and go to the Setup Icon.  Once in the Setup menu, use the right arrow key and go to the Wireless option and press OK.  Scroll through the Wireless options until you see Restore Network Defaults. Once the defaults have been reset we are then going to run through the Wireless Setup Wizard.
    The Wizard will get the printer back on to the network and you will be prompted for a user name and password.
    Back on the computer the download should be complete and you can now double click on the new icon.  Follow the installation instructions.  You will be given connectivity options and when you choose wireless, you will be asked to type in the IP address that can now be found on the printer.
    This should take care of the issues that you have been experiencing.
    If the troubleshooting does not help resolve your issue, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see about further options for you. If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions, click here: click here.

  • HP Solutions Center stopped Working on Windows 8

    I have been using HP 3210 all in one printer for quite some time on Windows 8. All of the sudden earlier this week or last, I noticed the Solutions Center no longer worked. A message comes up saying the device software has not installed correctly. I have tried reinstalling the entier software, but get the same response. Any ideas of why it was working and now all of the sudden it does not. the printer still prints out fine, just can't use the solutions center.

    Hey @BOWZ,
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums!
    I would like to assist you today in resolving the error with HP Solutions Center 'Device Software has not installed correctly' with your HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One. Being that you're running Windows 8 there is a good chance that if this was working for a period and suddenly stopped working a Windows Update most likely caused the conflict. Now I know you have already tried reinstalling your software and that failed to resolve anything. I'm going to offer a few more steps here to get your Solutions Center software up and running again.
    Step 1: Uninstall your HP Software:
    Open your start screen by either clicking on the Windows start button on the bottom left of your computer screen or by selecting your Windows button on the bottom left hand corner of your keyboard to the right of the Ctrl button
    Once your Start screen opens just type 'programs and features' and the Programs and Features option should automatically populate. Should it not show as an option then you may need to select 'Settings' on the right hand side and then choose 'Programs and Features'
    Once Programs and Features launches a list of all the programs installed on your computer will populate. Locate the HP Photosmart C3210 software and uninstall it. Note: you should see a file that says 'HP Photosmart 3210 basic driver' and one that shows 'Solutions Center,' ensure that they are removed from your computer.
    Once the HP Software is uninstalled then reboot your computer
    Step 2: Empty your Temp Files:
    When your computer comes back on, reopen your Start screen and type 'Run'
    Select the Run box and then type in the run box %temp% and select OK
    When the Temp folder opens select Ctrl + A at the same time on your keyboard to select everything in the Temp folder
    Next release Ctrl + A and select Delete on your keyboard
    Almost everything should delete out of this Temp folder. If any files are still being used on your computer you will have the pop up to 'skip' these.
    Note: Only Temporary files are being deleted. No files or folders for your actual computer will be removed by doing this.
       6. Once the files in the Temp folder have been deleted then close the folder
       7. Right click on your Recycling Bin on your Desktop and left click on 'Empty Recycling Bin'
    Step 3: Run an MSCONFIG Selective Startup:
    Reopen your Run box again and this time type msconfig and select OK
    When the System Configuration Utility opens select 'Selective Startup' and uncheck 'Load Startup Items'
    Click on the Services tab at the top and uncheck 'Hide all Microsoft Services' at the very bottom
    Select Disable All on the right hand side
    Select Apply and OK
    When prompted, restart your computer 1 more time
    Step 4: Reinstall your Software and Drivers:
    You're now ready to reinstall your HP Software and Drivers. Please select this link: HP Photosmart and Officejet Full Feature Software and Drivers for your drivers.
    Select Download and Run the HP installer when prompted
    Follow the on screen instructions to complete the install of your HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One.
    Does Solutions Center work now?
    If yes, please re-enable your Startup Services again.
    How to Enable Startup Services:
    Open the Run box and type msconfig and select OK
    When System Configuration Utility opens select 'Normal Startup'
    Select Apply and OK
    Restart your computer again when prompted
    Please let me know if these steps resolve your issue. Good luck!

  • Photosmart C8180 stopped working and refuses any re-installation attempts on XP Desktop

    Hello, I am new to the forum and am in need of some installation help.
    I had graphics card failure (twice), and the last time the computer got turned on it was without the printers USB being plugged into it and this seems to be when the printers Software Solution Center stopped working.  I could print in a mundane mannor but needed the solution center for my high end digital printing jobs.
    So, I uninstalled and tried to re-install the software. Each attempt has given me a failed installation. I have been at this for days.  I got a fatal error but didn't see an actual code for it.  I allowed it to scan for problems and it told me "A solution has been found for this particular problem" but following each of those steps did not solve anything. The downloaded software from the site gave me the same results.
    What happens is the software installation goes to approx 97% (although the last attempt said 100% and still failed) and then it hangs and says it took too long to respond. This part I failed to pay proper attention to, I believe. Sorry for the lack of better info here, but the software kept telling me "No HP devices have been detected" on each failed re-install attempt ... which have been at least 10!  I believe this is because the software didn't finish the install.
    I ran disk cleanup between each retry as well - however I know for a fact all things were not removed from registry and found several folders in the Temp folder after as well. I didn't know what was safe to remove and what wasn't so left them alone.
    I did get a screenshot of the Error Situation Code from the error log it prepared to send to HP and which is what prompted the  "A solution has been found for this particular problem" message and download of an app called HP Installation Error - XP.hta. Again, attempts to do these steps also failed.
    I am at my wits end and hope to be able to solve this issue. I need my printer soon (I am making wedding invites "soon").
    Here is my screenshot.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    First:  I am a bit disappointed that it has taken over a month for a reply. I all but gave up.
    I followed these instruction at the link provided. However, I couldn't follow through -
    When I clicked on the HP Update link provided, I choose XP, selected Next, clicked the plus sign next to Update (It only showed Update(6)) I do NOT get an option anywhere for "HP Update Software Utility".
    All I get are these:
    1. Critical Update: Cannot find scanned image or document files after scanning completes.
    2. Solution Center Update
    3. HP Print Driver Update
    4. Critical Update to Enhance Reliability of Network and USB Connectivity and Improve System Responsiveness While Printing
    5. Critical Update to Correct a PC to Printer Communication Issue
    6. Critical Update for HP Photosmart Essential
    I do not understand what is even going on with this software! I have installed/uninstalled many times. The last time I got as shown in images in above messages. The software hung at the 96% mark on the final configuration. I went through all the steps shown in previous messages to troubleshoot. Followed all options given. Nothing worked.
    This time I did not uninstall the software. It is listed in Program Files. It is listed in the Registry. The monitor icon is in the sys tray and is showing a green checkmark as seen here:
    When I try to open Solution Center I get this message:
    I can still use the printer (have not tried the scanner - its an Photosmart C8180 AIO) but cannot access advanced features.
    I can access Photosmart Essentials. When it first opened it asked to check for updates. I thought I would just to see if the software was working. This is the message I got:
    BUT, as you can see - I am online already! What is up with that?
    While going through some of those steps provided in the link you gave me in the above message I went into Event Viewer to see what I could find. I cannot believe after all the years I have used the computer - I never knew about that!
    Interesting information. I found many error messages and warnings (for a total of 21!) in there related to the HP install attempts. Many are repeats because of the sheer number of times I uninstalled/reinstalled. All contained either an error code of 1904 or 1905. Each showed an issue with either Flash (filed to register), smartwebprinting (ClipBook.dll not existing), etc. I am going to give screenshots of the ones that seem to be different (bare with me here):
    OKAY ... That was all the messages. You can see on them which were fatal and which were warnings.
    NOTE: About the one showing an error with the Flash. Flash is installed and it is the latest version. I do not recall if it was at that time (since this has been over 30 days ago), and as I said - I have not tried to reinstall again .... I cannot begin to tell you how discuted I am with HP 'anything' at the moment.
    I hope I have not left anything out after all this time. I have tried to provide as much information as possible. I hope to hear back; soon.
    Thank you.

    Please try pressing the OK or STOP button to clear the error.
    If the error remains, it may be due to the application you are scanning from not supporting scanning from the ADF.  However, if the issue persists, it would be best to get in touch with our technical support team at http://bit.ly/Phone_Support for further assistance.

  • Itunes launches fine however I cannot connect to the Itunes store.  It says that Itunes has stopped working and windows is looking for a solution.

    Everything seems fine until I try to access the ITunes store.  Then I get a message that ITunes has stopped working and that Windows is looking for a solution.  Then it tells me that no solution has been found and closes down Itunes.
    I can still sync music / podcasts to my ipod and iphone.  I am still getting podcast downloads automatically for the ones I have subscribed to.
    This is the first time this issue with not being able to access the Itune stores has happened to me.  I was just there 2 nights ago.

  • I deleted Bonjour, since I don't need it for remote printing.  Now I get the message " Airport Base Station has stopped working: and also a message saying APAgent.exe can't be found.  What to do??? Thanks.

    I deleted Bonjour since I don't need it for remote printing.  Now on start-up I get the message: "Airport Base Station Agent has stopped working" and also message: "can't find APAgent.exe.:  Do I need AP Agent??  What to do??  Thanks. 

    The APAgent monitors your AirPort base station and informs you if there are things like firmware updates available. This utility relies on Bonjour, but is not required for base station operation. However, Bonjour makes it easier for your PC to "find" the base station via the AirPort Utility and I would recommend that you keep it installed. If you don't want the APAgent, you can just use the Apple Updater utility (that was also installed when the AirPort Utility was installed) to remove it.

  • Hi, I have purchased I-Tunes match which gets to stage 3 but then I get a message pop up advising me that I-Tunes has stopped working and then I-Tunes just closes down! Has anyone else experience this or know a solution?

    Hi, I have purchased I-Tunes match but since doing so, I get to stage three of the transfer of library to I-Cloud which is downloading artwork, extra information etc and as soon as stage 1 and 2 turn into green ticks, a message pops up to advise that I-Tunes has stopped working and closes I-Tunes down! I have managed to get the bulk of my library across to I-Cloud so I can listen to music through my apple TV - However now every time I bring up I-Tunes, the I-Tunes Match recognises that there is still some artwork/songs that need to be transferred and again once gets to this same stage of the transfer process, I-Tunes closes down. Has anyone else experienced this or have any advice on as solution? I have a Sony  NS-Series laptop with Windows Vista. Following the closure of I-Tunes, I then get another pop up message advising me that perhaps my current I-Tunes is not the most up to date version and recommends that I download the current version - however my I-Tunes version is currently up to date.

    Frustration understood.  May well be worthwhile simply:
    1.  Sign-out of iTunes Store
    2.  Shutdown computer
    3.  Start computer
    4.  Download and install latest version of iTunes
    5.  Launch iTunes, sign-in to iTunes Store, start iTunes Match & allow process to work to completion
    By switching on iCloud Status, iCloud Download and Kind fields you can watch progress for any issues.
