HP printers can be very touchy about the way they are installed.

1) Disconnected the printer
2) Uninstall the software
3) Restart your computer
4) DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER
5) Install the driver and only connect the printer when the installation tells you to.

The other source of problem is where the printer is connected to the printer, if it is connected to a USB hub (especially an unpowered one) it may cause issues. Try connecting to one of the ports at the rear of your computer.

Check your cable, maybe try another one, it could have become damaged in the move.

How many times have you tried installing the software? If more than 3 times it's always better to for an L3_Uninstall First.
To do a Level 3 uninstall:
1. Insert Disc 2. Go to Computer(Vista, 7), Mt Computer (XP) 3. Right Click on the HP CD, Click Open or Explore 4. Look for Util folder and open it. 5. Look for CCC, open it. 6. Look for Uninstall_L3, Double CLick
Follow the on screen instructions.
The uninstall will prompt you to restart the computer once it's done.
7. When the computer restarts, try reinstalling the software and make sure you do it one by one.
In order for you to do that, On the installer when you get to the agreement page there will be f four links and then a check box initiating that you agree to the rems and conditions of HP. Before checking that box.
Make sure you've chosen what software to be installed first. To do that. On the fourth link. The one that says "Select which software to install." Click on it and the only software that you want to lieave checked is the required driver. If you cannot uncheck HP Updates. That's okay.
Then click back to go back to the previous agreement page. Go with the installation.
8. Go back to My Computer or Computer. 9. Double Click on the HP Software. 10. Install the following Softwares.
  • HP Imaging Device Functions
  • HP Solution Center
  • OCR IRIS Software
Try Scanning again. I hope you follow this and I Hope it Works. :)

Many issues are caused when the HP Photosmart is connected to computer using a USB cable before the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. IF you connected the HP Photo smart to your computer before the software installation screen prompts you to do so, you must follow these steps.

Troubleshooting common setup issues :
1) Discoonect the USB cable from the computer.
2) Uninstall the software (if you have already installed it.)
3) Restart you computer.
4) Turn off the HP Photosmartm wait one minute then turn it on.
5) Reinstall the HP Photosmart software.

If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before prompted by the software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the Hp Photosmart application files from your computer. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility provided when you installed the software that came with the HP Photosmart.

2) Double-click Add/Remove Programs (or click Uninstall a program).
3) Select HP Photosmart Driver Software, and then click Change/ Remove.
Follow the onscreen instructions.
4) Disconnect the HP Photosmart from your computer.
5) Restart your computer.
Note : It is important to that you disconnect the HP Photosmart before restaring your computer. Do not connect the HP Photosmart to your computer untill after you have reinstalled the software.

Windows keeps re-installing HP Photosmart C4280


I have a customer with Windows XP and the same issue. Told him to unplug the printer cable when starting the computer and/or restarting it. Wait until all auto-start programs have loaded, including and specifically the HP Monitoring Utility program. Once Windows is up and he's at the desktop, THEN plug the printer cable into the computer. He's been doing that for several days now with no duplicate printers installed.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


hi
i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
over and over again

and then it hit me !!!

why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

cheers

Fatal error message


Hi all,

The error happens if your installation did not finish completely and you didnt have complete access and permission to the system(even though you are an administrator). Run the access denied tool by hp by clicking on the link http://tinyurl.com/5u2pg three times. uninstall the software and reinstall again. If this dosent work you will have to manually change the permissions in the registery.

hope this helps!
cheers
