Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My HP Photosmart C4380 is working fine for printing but I can't scan from the computer (Vista). when I go Scan from HP Solution Center it tells me the printer is disconnected even tho it prints fine. Wireless connection.
I am sick and tired of the problems i have with this PSC, but i have found a scanning solution and thought i would share it.
Use Microsoft Paint. It's not the best application in the world, but you can insert a scan from a scanner in the 'file' menu. :0) The scans are not of the best quality, but i'm grateful i can scan at all with this useless PSC.

Try scanning without HP imaging software
HP Photosmart C4380 Direct Scan button doesnt function in VISTA
Use the built-in feature of the Windows operating system, called Windows Image Acquisition (WIA), instead of the HP software to scan. Follow these steps to perform a WIA scan.

It's a work-around, but use Task Manager, find the svchost.exe that's running and kill it. Wait a second and scanning will start. Leave hpqkygrp.exe alone.

I have had this problem numerous time with my C4380.
I found that if I rebooted the printer and then the PC it would then reconnect to one another and print.
