HP Solution Center is a program mainly for printing. Unfortunately, some users found that the program didn’t work. Don’t worry if you are bothered by the same issue. In this post, MiniTool Partition Wizard puts together some useful solutions.
HP Solution Center is developed by Hewlett Packard, an American multinational information technology company. It is a printer management program that can be used as a central point of access for tasks such as scanning, and printing.
However, this software depends on Adobe Flash Player for its functionality. When Flash software is not active on your system, HP Solution Center doesn’t work. Since Flash is no longer supported by the industry, you might be unable to use HP Solution Center.
What should you do if you want to print and scan in this case? Don’t worry. Here are some solutions to HP Solution Center not working.
Solution 1: Try HP Scan Executable
If you want to use the HP Solution Center scanning feature but encounter HP Solution Center not working, you can try opening the HP Scan executable from the HP folder on your PC.
