generally, HP has a great support for its devices. For your
particular problem, the first step I would recommend is to go to and look, whether your printer is
supported and what it is supposed to be able to do under

Subsequently there is A LOT of information on anything regarding
installation, configuration, printing, scanning and faxing and
much more available there.
