Deskjet 2540 all in one printer - does the scanning work with Mac OS Yosemite 10.10.1 ?

I was trying to scan a document using this new printer and my Mac OS Yosemite 10.10.1 and I cannot even find the page that allows me to scan since now it is all through the computer.  Is this printer compatible with this operating system? and if so, what can I do to see the page where the file actually shows up to scan?

  • After upgrading to Mac OS 10.9 My HP Deskjet F4580 all in one printer no longer scans. How can we fix it?

    Hi All,
    I recently upgraded to Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks, but now my HP Deskjet F4580 All in one printer will not scan any documents either as PDF or as JPG, how can we fix this?

    I have simialr problems, after i scanned the ducuments or pictures, i can save it for only once, but the file is just black pictures with many lines through them. When i try to save it again, then it says ''An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to.  Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only.', which then doesn't allow me to do anything of saving the file or even just to print it out.

  • All in one printer does not scan.

    All in one printer model:  HP Officejet 4500 G510n-z
    Computer:  HP 2310 Series Wide LCD monitor
    The scanner does not scan.  I think it is not connected or set up and there are no instructions in the manual.  The printer and copier work fine.  I ran HP Print and Scan Doctor and it could not detect a scanner.  What can I do?

    What OS and how's the printer connected?

  • HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone has used this printer on their Macbook OSX 10.9.1.?
    Or any other suggestions for compatible printers. I was bummed when I realized my Kodak wasn't compatible and now have to get another printer.
    My range of price for a printer would not be more than $80 so I'm hoping you guys can help me find a printer good enough. All I need it to do is to print documents and scan. Nothing more, nothing less.
    Pleae help me, thank you!

    Turn On AirPrint via webinterface
    Turn On Wireless Direct via webinterface
    Reset Printing system
    Add Printer via Default: Bonjour
    Scan works for me now...

  • What's the best all in one printer on the market today for mac?

    All of the reviews by the media and users contradict each other leaving me very indecisive. I was thinking about the Epson Workforce 645 but one review said it wasn't compatible with Lion (and who knows if it will be compatible with Mountain Lion?). Does anyone have a newer model all in one that they love? I plan to use it with my macbook pro and use a wireless airport connection. Thanks

    All printer manufacturer's play "catch-up" with OS revisions.  If a printer doesn't work immediately with the latest OS, you should check the manufacturer's website.  Here's a laugh: I purchased an Epson EPL-5700i monochrome laser printer a dozen years ago, for "only" $500.  With all of the changes in Macs and the OS, I've never been not able to use the printer.  Either Apple or the vendor has made printer driver software available seamlessly.

  • Does the Superdrive work with Mac Mini w/out server?

    I want to buy an external Superdrive for my old Mac Mini but I'm not sure it will work because of the information about it on the Apple website.
    It read, "Compact and convenient, the MacBook Air SuperDrive connects to your MacBook Air computer or Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server."
    What is meant by "a Snow Leopard server"?  I have Snow Leopard on my Mac Mini but it's not connected to a server.  It's a standalone computer in my home. Does that mean it won't be supported by a Mac Mini unless it is on a server?
    Thank you in advance for answers.

    If you're in the market for a new Mac mini, observe that the external SuperDrive is compatible with the newest Mac mini; in fact, it's offered as an option when you order one from Apple's site. The caveats linked to above are about Snow Leopard, which isn't supported on the newest machines — it won't even install without jumping through hoops.
    If you want to save money by buying the older version, do bear in mind that the CPUs on the latest models are significantly faster — for comparison, the 2011 minis, while slightly slower, are in the same ballpark as the 2011 iMacs, wheras the fastest 2010 mini is slightly slower than the slowest "early 2009" iMac.
    The new ones also have a Thunderbolt port.
    If you do decide to go the eBay route and you're concerned about buying a broken Mac, look for one covered under the AppleCare Protection Plan (you can verify coverage by getting the serial number and checking here), as it's transferable and, given that the last model was released less than two years ago, it'll have at least a year of coverage left.
    To be on the safe side, you should ensure the seller transfers the warranty with Apple — while they'll honor it regardless, a shady seller could request a pro-rated refund from Apple on the remaining AppleCare at any time after the sale, since they'll have proof of purchase and it'll still be in their name. Not sure how to do this, because I've never bought a Mac on eBay — the one time I tried several years ago, there seemed to be more scam artists than legitimate sellers (to be fair, I was in the market for a G5 tower when it was the current high-end and retailed for several thousand dollars).
    Finally, factory refurbished 2010 minis with full Apple warranties appear on the Apple store site (at a discount) from time to time.
    In case it isn't obvious, I'm in the market for a new mini myself.

  • Does the timecapsule work with mac OS X 10. 4. 11?

    does it work with 10.4.11? Or only with leopard? If it does work with 10.4.11 what features does leopard have that 10.4.11 not have?

    Not exactly. The USB cable is only to connect printers and HDDs (or a combination of both using a USB hub). You will connect either to the network that the Time Capsule creates, or to the network that it is a part of (if you have it set to join an existing network) via ethernet or wifi. Then you should be able to see and access the HDD on the TC as a network attached storage drive (NAS). This means you can mount the TC on your desktop and use it as a regular HDD. It's at this point that you can copy the files over to it, or use a program such as SuperDuper and tell it to use the TC's HDD as it's target.

  • HP Deskjet 2512 All-in-One Printer vs. Deskjet 1000 = Same internal mechanisms​???

    Any one know if the HP Deskjet 2512 All-in-One Printer and the Deskjet 1000 have the same internal gears and printing mechanisms ?
    The 1000 is a pure printer with no scanner, copier etc. The 2512 visually looks the same as the 1000 but does scans, etc. Just $15.00 difference in price at Walmarts.
    The HP 1000 gears grind away when I print a magnetic sheet of 8 1/2 x 11"  and will skip printing on different place on magnetic sheet.
    I was wondering if it would do me any good to go up a notch to the 2512 to print said magnetic sheets?
    Thanks in advance - Michael

    Hello michaelforsure,
    You could check out the specs for the 2512 to see the thickness of what it will successfully print.  You could compare that to the thickness of the magnetic sheets and see if it is compatible.
    Please let me know if this helps.
    Good luck!

    Hello there lcastor050, Welcome to the forums.
    I understand you are unable to download the drivers for your Deskjet 2540 as the installation stalls on you. I am going to post you a link to the drivers and software download page. You will need to select your operating system and then download the driver from there.

  • HP Deskjet F2120 all in one printer driver not installing after upgrading to Windows 7

    I have a HP Deskjet F2120 all in one printer. I was working fine in Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.
    Once I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit the driver is failing to install.
    I have tried all the solutions provided on the HP website but none of them worked.
    I also wrote a mail to HP support but they replied that its out of warranty hence they will not be able to help.
    If some genius can help me I will pray for him/her that all his/her wishes come true.
    Thanks you in advance.
    Imroz Baig

    I just got my HP Deskjet F2120 working in Windows 7.  Here's how:
    Insert the setup disk in your CD/DVD drive.  Choose to view the files in Explorer.  Scroll down to the file "Setup," which is identified as an application.
    Right-click the file and select "Properties." Click the "Compatibility" tab at the top of the resulting window.
    Check off "Run this program in compatability mode for:" and choose "Windows Vista" from the pop-up menu.
    ALSO check "Run this program as administrator" at the bottom of the window.
    Press "Apply," then "OK."
    Now you can double-click the "Setup" file and run the software installer.
    It will 100% work inshallah...

  • HP Deskjet 3050A All-in-one printer J611 series - mavericks and wireless set up

    I have a HP Deskjet 3040A All-in-one printer J611, I have had this printer for about 2years and everything worked perfect then I bought an Apple still all was alright but when I updated my software I got Mavericks and ever since then everything went wrong....I have updated my computer and have AirPrint now and also HP ePrint(currently). How ever the printer was not working or connecting.
    Problem 1:
    When I tried to fix the problem I uninstalled all HP drivers to reinstall - found that you have to install the apple app Done!(Airprint)
    The printer was picked up by the computer and I can scan but I can not print, I'm using the USB cable, and when I print the computer shows it is printing and the printers lights come on but nothing happens(no messages display on the printer) then the computer shows the print is done - but the printer didn't print. Scan is working fine.
    Problem 2:
    Because of constant problems with the wireless connection I wanted to reconnect it to the router - Restore default.
    But now because I don't have the HP drivers, I have no idea how to connect it and I tried both connection ways WPS is not working when I press it on the route...nothing happens and the PIN, where are you suppose to enter the pin, nothing comes up on my computer (USB connected) 
    I have read the installation pages over and over but can't figure out what is wrong, any advice would be appreciated. 
    This question was solved.

    Hi Lilly4,
    I can certainly help you get the printer on the network and working again.
    Follow the steps in this thread to put the printer on the network without using the software or the WPS button. I believe  we have success doing it this way.  
    If you continue to experience an issue after the printer is on the network, please let me know. Thanks.
    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I noticed that you are wondering how to connect your HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One Printer - J410a to a wireless connection. I am happy to look into this for you!  
    According to your printer's specifications and the Setup Poster, this printer can only be connected to a computer via a USB 2.0 printer cable connection. This printer does not have wireless capabilities.
    Hope this answers your question, and have a great day!
