Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I want to scan and email a document from my new HP DESKJET F4280 printer. I can scan it, and then I try to share it, but when I hit the send button it says there is no internet connection. Am I right in thinking that I need outlook express to do this, as when I try to send emails via outlook express is comes up with a message saying POP3 .... and fails. I tried to save the scanned doc to my word file, but the text is encrypted then. Please help

When you scan a document it must be scanned with OCR software. The default scanning method will scan a document as a picture, not a document with letters and words. The OCR software will recognize the letters and put the scanned document in the proper format to open it with MS Word. The software that you scan with should have a setting for OCR, read your instructions or help files to get the details if you can not find them very easy in the software you use for scanning. .

The problem with using Outlook may be that you have not set it up properly to get your emails from your email server. You do not need to use Outlook or Outlook express to send any documents, you can use your web based email server if you like, but you can use Outlook Express as well. You just need to add the document to send as an attachment to the email.

To set up Outlook Express to get your email, you must first find out what the POP3 and SMTP setting you must use. You can get that information from your email provider, it is different for every email provider. Then you go to the "File" menu at the top left of Outlook Express and select "Identities" and select "Add New Identity" and from there you will go thru a wizard to guide you thru the process of setting up your email client. Just make sure you have the POP3 and SMTP settings available for you to put into Outlook Express when prompted to in the wizard.

My HP Deskjet F4280 all in one scans only to Photo Smart. I need to scan it to documents so I can send documents by email. How do I get it to scan to documents?


You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

What is the process to save a document or picture scanned with my HP Deskjet F4280? I am using Microsoft Windows 7. I am unable to install any HP software for this printer/scanner while using Windows 7.


There is no need to install any software for scanning from Windows 7 computer.

It's very easy

On computer click "Start" (windows icon)
click "All Programs"
click "Windows Fax and Scan"
click "Scan" and complete the scan as per on-screen instructions there


Make sure printer is turned on and connected to computer through usb cable properly.

The scan function won't work on my HP Deskjet F4280. When I press the scan button, all that happens is the light on the power button starts flashing. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

My HP F4280 Deskjet All-In-One does not scan!


Under Control Panel, click System, than click hardware, than click device manager.

Uninstall USB Controllers, and than unplug the USB cord from back of the PC.

Once the USB controllers have been uninstalled, restart your PC.

Once the PC has been restarted, put the USB Cable back into the PC, and let the Operating system reinstall the drivers.

This should reinstall all drivers such as twain, usb, etc..
