I have a HP Deskjet 1510 Printer. I have been able to scan in the past but now I get a message "the HP Deskjet 1510 series was not found"
I don't get any problem with printing.
Have tried HP Print and Scan Doctor 5.3.1. but don't seem to get anywhere.
Any advice please.
Many thanks.

not long enough
I haven't tried it myself yet, but was talking to an architect yesterday who wanted to see a drawing I had

He told me about an app called scancam or might have been camscan, which apparently from a mobile phone looks for corners of the paper even up to A3 and creates a scan quality document

we didn't need to send it in the end so not looked or tried, but if urgent it might solve your problem

Reinstallation has solved the problem.
Just got a few cobwebs from trying to find the disc !!
Thanks one and all for your help and advice
