HP PSC 1610 hardware scan buttons support

Asked by Paweł on 2020-04-10

Hello,

This is my first question, so please correct me if I did something wrong.

I have HP PSC 1610 printer, which replaced my HP Officejet 6700 Premium, which got broken. I managed to configure scan button to work in Officejet using some network pulling script. However PSC is connected via USB and that script can no longer work.

I installed my HP PSC 1610 with hp-setup command and when getting information about sane device i have no sensors listed. I was unable to find any instructions for how to get it working. I want my printer to scan and save a file on my linux PC. Are hardware scan buttons even supported, if not would it be difficult to add support?

Thanks for replies!

Paweł

Hi,

Download the latest HPLIP version from https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing
and plugin from https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/plugins.

run the files :

>> sh hplip-3.20.3.run

>> sh YOUR_DOWNLOADED_PLUGIN_FILE

after installation is completed.

You can run "hp-scan" or "xsane" to scan and save file on you Linux PC

Thank You Anam Alam for your answer,

but I have no issue scanning from my PC. The problem is when i press scan button on my device. LCD states that "there is no PC connected". I would like to know if scanning from device (not PC) is supported. If it is, how do i set it up?

That is not supported by HPLIP, we only support scan from PC, not from the hardware scan button

That is the answer, unfortunately not the one I was looking for. However I am still open for suggestions how to get this feature working. Would inspecting packets send by official HP drivers get me somewhere?
