    it just stopped scanning and I have no idea why

  • dceagleeye24 May 04, 2009

    I can not scan as well. I went to the site that was recommended but it is for Windows and it only diagnoses C5100. What is the fix for us who have Vista Home Premium?

    The C5180 won't show the scan to computer. It's worked before.

You may have gotten a disk that only contains Windows XP drivers.

You can download the latest Vista drivers and software for your HP Photosmart C5180 at this location:

Have you already installed the software? If so, you need to uninstall what is currently installed, and unplug the printer, then run through the install process again using the software from the link above. Make sure not to plug in the Photosmart until the installation process tells you to!

SOURCE: Printer drivers for HP Photosmart C5180 for windows 98

- to tell you honestly HP did not support windows 98 for their new printers... so there is no way you can find the driver for windows 98... all you can do is to upgrade your OS to XP or vista....

Hi Suz305,
Trying cleaning the glass. if that doesn't work, you should check if it's a hardware or software problem - try making a copy and see if it happens in copies too, or only in the scanning. Good luck!
