Question about HP PhotoSmart C4180 All-in-One Color InkJet Photo Printer

Unable to scan photos to computer

I have tried to scan twophotos to my laptop computer through the HP C4180 scanner/printer, but I am unable to do so - I get a message saying I need to have 'software' to do this. Since I loaded the original software when I got the printer, I am not sure what is expected. I tried downloading an updated driver from the HP website, but the link did not work today!  I am stuck... Please help me.
Thanks Louise

    Hi Rey17
    Thanks for your help. I actually managed to download a 'fix' by trial and error on the HP website after I wrote my message.


    Thank you for letting me know about this site.


    Cheers

    I have the same model, Photosmart C4180, It will print a test sheet just fine , but will not print from glass top or from scan, it just prints lines of garbage, I think the problem is in the reading lamp. it has blue coloring instead of bright light like other printer/copier models. Thanks for any help, Ron.

HP Photosmart C4180 scanner


Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

C4180 Scan Work Around

They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

Thanks for using Fixya.

Scanning photos using HP Photosmart C4200 series scanner but unable to ascertain how to save them to computer.


I had the same problem, I could scan something but I couldn't send it wirelessly to the computer to save.

Try this, go to START , CONTROL PANEL, SCANNERS AND CAMERAS and see if the HP photosmart is listed.
If it isn't, get out your HP disk that came with it and install it. After it is installed, you can scan and save from there without using the buttons on the HP.
