Hp OfficeJet print/scan in different ports

I just added HP OfficeJet K80xi to a computer running Windows 2000 Professional. Interestingly, when OfficeJet is set to LPT1, it only prints. When it is set to DOT4, it only scans. An enduser therefore has to switch the port back and forth in printer's setting. This routine is extremely cumbersome.

Does anyone encounter this problem before? Is there a way to set printing and scanning to the same port -- to either LPT1 or DOT4? I've been unable to configure this successfully. Maybe there is a configuration for W2kPRO that I might miss somewhere.

Computer = HP Vectra VL 866 MHZ, 256MB Ram, 30GB HD.

Thanks in advance

Charlie

1) Download the newest drivers from HP.

Check the HP knowledge base for similar problems.

Is the LPT set for the correct parallel settings in the BIOS ( EPP or ECP etc ).

Also - install SP2 for win2k !

I hope this helps !

I think the best way to solve this problem to uninstall the software and reinstall it again.

You may need to check out this link before uninstalling the diver to enable complete uninstllation:

http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport/get_doc.pl?SNI=ojlx&LC=multifunction&Tfile=bpu02071#P55_4801

Then After that user the next link to download(forced Uninstaller) and run it to ensure removing all the setting:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/all_in_one/software/oj563uninstall.exe

Then
disconnect your HP OfficeJet K80xi  from your PC then Reboot the computer..
After that
Install your software normally from the CD-Rom that came with the OfficeJet.

Also, make sure that the software in provided CD supports Windows 2000 (printed on the CD-Rom), Otherwise, download the lastest driver from HP web site, Follow the link below:
