    Have not been able to get help for Apple either. Tried everything. Drivers are correct. Sees the device for Printer but not as Scanner. Would appreciate any suggestions.

    thanks in advance

    Is the device on a wireless network? All-in-ones will only act as printers through Airport. I have this issue at home. If we want to scan, we have to plug the printer/scanner directly into our MacBook.

    You've got to install the HP software to your Imac


    My Hp is slightly different but also an "All-in-one".
    In order for your Imac to see the scanner portion, you need to install the supplied software that came with your all-in-one.

    As you will be using the HPScan software to use the scanner portion.
