Windows 7: HP Deskjet 1050 - Scanner

07 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 ultimare 64 bit
found a solution

I had the same problem. one fine day the scanner software wouldnt start at all. i downloaded the HP diagnostic tool for scanner and ran and it said that i had a problem with WIA. The WIA wouldnt start.

First i ran services.msc and navigated to windows image acquisition and clicked on it. it was disabled. i set it on automatic and clicked on start. it didnt start and gave a error 1068

"Windows could not start the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start".

I clicked on dependencies tab to see what the WIA is dependent on

there were

"Remote Procedure Call (RPC)"
"Shell Hardware Detection"

I went back to services.msc and navigated to remote procedure call and clicked on it. it was in automatic and was running (start greyed out)

I came back to services (local) and navigated to "Shell Hardware Detection" and clicked on it. it was disabled and that was the culprit. i enabled it and set to automatic and clicked on start and it got activated.

I went back to Windows image acquisition and enabled it to automatic and it started on clicking start.

Now i closed and when i clicked on my desktop icon HP Deskjet 1050 J410 series Scan it started and became as usual.

Just to check again. i ran the HP scanner diagnostic tool and WIA git green tick and also the HPtwain and registry

Guys try it out

Scanning works if HP Deskjet 1050A is connected via USB-2 (not USB-3)

Found a surprisingly solution that did it for me:

Maybe also helpful for Gorlakh:

As I worked with XP my HP Desket 1050A worked fine incluing Scanning and Showing Ink-Status, etc.
Then after I installed Windows 7 only printing worked from PC, thus any Connection back from Printer to
PC did not work. All attempts like described here did not fix this behaviour also for me until I have built in a new hard disk in my pc:

Accidently I plugged the Printer now to a USB-2 and not to a USB-3 connector on the backside. And then
it worked directly int the first trial: Both Printing and Scanning!

Hopefully this helps someone, too.
