  1. Help Help! My company recently bought this scanner, then i install it and from the administrator login i can use the scanner program with no problem. But when the user (no adminstrator right) try to use the scanner program, it have error msg say cannot detect the scanner need to do the few trouble shooting but when i try to use the mircosoft scanner and camera wizard is able to detect this scanner. Is there anyway i can send u the screenshot of the error msg? Hope to hear from u soon =(

  2. Its better if you can provide me the error message..also let me know the software version that you are using.host the error screenshot on imageshack and post the link here.

  3. Thank for the prompt reply, and sorry for the lousy info i provide.

    Let me re-phrase what is my problem again:

    My company recently just bought this G3110 photo scanner, using Hp Scanning software 11.5.0166 firmware ver. 1.0.na. I install this program with administrator login and i am able to use this scanner with the Hp scanning software with no error. But when i login to a user account(no adminstrator right)and try to use the scanner with the Hp scanning software, it pop up an error msg (as shown in the screenshot below):


    Seeing this error, i try to use the mircosoft scanner and camera wizard and it is able to detect this G3110 photo scanner.

    My company is using window XP professional, and i am sure is something to do with the hp scanning software.

  4. Hi it me again. Thank for the patch you gave me. The patch ome how work for those user who have already login to the pc before. Those new user (1st time login to the pc) will have the error again. Any more solution =)

  5. I am trying to scan a small picture and make it bigger. Seems like it would be easy, but I cannot do it!!! Help! Please give me step-by-step instrucitons on how to adjust the size of the output picture to be larger than the source picture being scanned. Thanks!

  6. Try scanning with high resolution,the highest available for your scanner.from scanners and cameras wizard from control panel--scannersa and cameras wizard or from hp solution center.

  7. Can anyone explain to me how to get the image larger than 260x180 (approx) when scanning negatives? I've tried at least 40 times to reset the resolution to 1200, 600, whatever...but it keeps reverting back to 300 and these useless postage stamp sized scans. VERY clunky slow interface...is there any other more user friendly software I could use, or is it time to return this scanner? My main need for this type of scanner is to scan about 1000 negatives and 2000 slides. Have I chosen the wrong scanner?

    BTW, the above wizard suggestion appears to be completely useless for negatives/slides.

  8. Nevermind, figured it out.

  9. I'm getting the same error when trying to scan as a non-admin with Windows XP

    error occurred while communicating w/ the HP imaging device.

    Extended Error Info is "4,[(2,57,8004001b),(0,0,0),(3,57,0)]"

  10. Just talked to HP about this and they say that you must be an admin to run the software. No other choice...no way we can let all our users be local admins so we're stuck.

  11. What does the patch do?

  12. If anyone still has this issue, I found if I give everyone full permissions to the to the registry keys under HKLM\Software\Hewlett-Packard it fixes the issue. I only support 8 machines with this, and after spending too much time I never went deeper to find the exact registry key causing the issue. If you are comfortable with opening these keys to everyone, this works, and if you don't it can at least give you a starting point.

  13. how I can do this. which value must be change in the HKLM\Software\Hewlett-Packard??

  14. Anybody have any luck with Windows 7 and the scanjet g3110???

  15. let me know what exactly is happening in windows 7 with your scanner g3110

  16. I already installed the COL10862.exe file. still have the same error first 4,[(2,5,7,8004001b),(0,0,0),(3,5,7,0)] and the second error is 8,[(4,0,1)]. would u please give me solution asap.

  17. Thank you for help with registry permissions with no admin rights.

  18. Hello,

    My Company just purchased a HP Scanjet G3110 scanner and it is awsome in terms of quality and output. But is only issue is while we scan simple documents to PDF it creates very heavy file size 2-3 document (5-4 MB). How can I reduce that filesize while scanning. Have tried to reduce the resolution to 150 ppi but of no use. Can someone help me with that?

  19. you can download and install HP Scanjet Full Feature Software and Driver it is compatible with the following operating systems.

    Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit), Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit), Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit), Microsoft Windows XP

    setup_full_G3110_3.exe (167 MB)

    this will surely reduce the file size of the pdf from the hp scanners, it owuld be around kb output pdf's

    Thanx man, This one saved the day!

  21. The registry permission thing worked for me as well. Many thanks !

    As it seems this problem ist more than 2 years old, i ask myself why hp didnt implemet that registry setting into the setup yet.

  22. hi. when i logon as an administrator acount , i can scan with HP G3110 scanner,but when i log off nad logon as a user acount i can't scan and resive 2 errors:4,[(2,57,8004001b),(0,0,0),(3,57,0)]............and 8,[(4,0,1)].can u help me ...? thank's

  23. My scanner doesn't scan negatives properly. When the scanner starts the scan, I can see the negative briefly on the screen. Then it just turns into color red. That's It. Pls help!!!

  24. Hi Ans,
    I installed the Scanjet G3110, installed software from the cd rom, scan did not work. Error message 8,[(5,0,0)] also after downloading software from hp site, the same error shows up.
    Please advise. Thanks & Regards,

  25. We have these scanjets in our labs and have consistent problems with them. A student will scan photo A. The next student scans photo B, but the only image that will show up is still Photo A. Every scan after that will be photo A. I have had to uninstall and reinstall the software over and over for this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  26. My G3110 worked fine on Vista. Now I'm using Win 7 (32 bit) and it won't scan negatives (keep getting error message). Tried uninstalling and reinstalling software and harware, but nothing works. Even downloaded patches, etc to no avail. HP really needs to work on their software upgrades as there is no support for the G3110 when using Win7.

  27. Hi , Ihave scanner hp scanjet g3110, but during scanning does not give options fpr pdf or ocr though all options were selected during installtion. I uninstalled and re install but the same problem persists.Any help?

  28. i cant get this scanner to scan to PDF. i have downloaded all the drivers and updates after using the instalation disk. i press the PDF button and the only options are image files. i also tryed going through the device manager to open it and still nothing. i am running windows 7 64bit.

  29. Is there a way to change the setting so it only scans letter size? My G3110 is scanning the full-length of the bed (11 3/") so all scans show a portion of the film tray. You'd think if it were scanning a document it could be set to scan only 11".

  30. I have this scanner primarily to scan slides. Kept getting error message that it can't communitcate and gave me a list of things to do to try and fix it. Did allof them including uninstalling my software. Now I can't find the solution center software to download to be able to run it. Ridiculous that you have to jump through hoops to do something that the hardware is supposed to do so easily!

  31. I am already install ad river a itis working, but when i press scan to pdf button then scanner not scan in pdf and ony scan in word doc, pictures etc

  32. Problem with Scanners
