    Have F4180 and downloaded driver with HP Photosmart (took 45 min) it did not register the printer to the computer and now it will not scan. Tried downloading it again with Kaspersky off but still did not register. I can print but cannot scan.

    Please offer me some suggestions, My printer was purchased in august 2007 as of a package including monitor, keyboard and tower.

    That's also what just started to happen with me. It was working fine a few days ago...

    HP Digital Imaging Monitor won't open either. ><

    My HP Deskjet F4180 prints just fine, but when I press the scan button (after having made sure my computer recognizes it in "Scanners and printers") nothing happens other than my On/Off button flashing which according to the manual, means it's scanning. The problem is that my laptop won't react to it and the scan isn't saved anywhere.

My F4180 HP Scanner/Printer is painfully slow to scan. What could be the problem. Didn't use to be like this.

Has the scanning resolution been changed? That is the most common reason why the scan would take a long time to complete. If you're just scanning for the web, set the resolution to 72dpi and see if that speeds it up.

Hope this helps.

Hp deskjet f4180 prints test page but will not scan

I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing suggestions.
Lift the cover and press copy or scan manually. ( Unit must be connected to your computer. )
You will see a long gear that the filament rides on. ( Back and forth ).
If the lamp comes on but does not move, you will need to remove the cover and set it back in place.
If the unit rides up and down but has no lamp, you will need to have serviced or replace the lamp.
Hope this information has helped you..

HP Deskjet F4180-no option to save as PDF

A simple solution to this problem is to scan to JPG as normal and then print the JPG to a PDF using one of the very good "print to PDF" utilities like the Cute PDF writer.

Good luck.
