Fredwilliam- this unit comes with the photosmart essentials software and according to hp this is a low end photosmart... the software might not be getting installed correctly due to insufficient previlages on the computer for your userlogin. Download and run the software three times from the following link from hp http://tinyurl.com/5u2pg then uninstall and install again. If you have had another hp camera or printer installation remove that before you reinstall.

I hope this helps!!

I have a dell computer and a hp photosmart c5280 it will not open the digital image monitor what do i do?


I have had some issues with hp software for printers. usually to make it work i had to do complete uninstall and reinstall and that was pain. Sometimes you firewall will block it or anti virus software. try to turn them off and try to open and if this does not work then reinstall it. Make sure you download latest software form hp site if available and not the cd since this sometimes can cause issues (Outdated drivers).

How to use my hp photosmart C5280 All in One scanner unsing mac leopard


When you install the Full Feature software for your printer, you receive the HP Photosmart Studio imaging software and the HP Utility printer management software. You can use either of these programs to scan, and can create custom settings in both.

In general, use HP Photosmart Studio to scan pictures if you want to edit them to adjust color, crop, remove red eye, etc. Use HP Utility to set up scan tasks you use often, such as scanning to a certain folder or software application, or attaching the scanned item to an email. If your printer has a display, you also use HP Utility to designate which scan tasks should appear on the printer display menu when you start a scan from the controls on the printer.

Make sure that the printer is connected to the computer. Turn it on. Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass.

Use HP Photosmart Studio to start a scan: Click the HP Photosmart Studio icon in the Dock. Click the Scan button. Select your HP product in the Device Name list, if necessary, and then click Continue. From the Scan Profiles screen, click either Pictures or Documents. Click Profile Settings , and then adjust any settings in the Capture , Adjust , and Page Options (for documents) or Enhance (for pictures) tabs as appropriate. Click Scan. When prompted, select Yes or No to add another page to the scan. The scan preview opens then click Return to close the preview and save the scan. Type a name for the scan in the Save As box. Click the Format drop-down list, select the file format you want, and then click Save.

My hp photosmart c5280 all in one printer keeps on trying to install itself.add printer keeps coming up on bottom of my screen.


try going into add remove programs and uninstall/delete all of the photosmart/hp software. reinstall it leaving the disk in until it says to take it out. if this doesnt work go to hp support and download the driver suite for your hp. repeat the uninstall of the old drivers/etc befor you do this, and then run the new software. This usually fixes the problem. let me know and we will go from there.

Scanner!!!


Install all printer software to your computer. You may have to restart your computer once this is completed. In my computer if you are using Windows, should appear an icon for your scanner. Press the icon and follow the instructions on the screen.
