Hello there,
Sorry but you didn't answer what OS you are using (Windows 7 etc?)
Failing this you need to set the 7150 as the default printer in Windows and Photoshop will pick that up.
If you can't find how to do this then when you tell me the OS I can give you explicit instructions.

Windows 7

Thank you

Ok click the start orb on the bottom left corner

Click on "Devices and Printers"

Right click your new printer listed under "Printers & Faxes" and choose "Set as default printer". Then click Ok

But I have done that and it is already set to Set as default printer, when I tried it out it was just the same ie Still looking for HP C5100 All in one printer.

If you go into the Photoshop printer settings can you select your new printer from the pull down menu?

What is happening is that the Canon Printer is being selected for the printing but the scanning is asking for the old HP printer!
