1 Answer

When I scan a photo, I get an error message USB not connected.

I can print with my C4200 All in one-printer, but when I try to scan a photo, I get this message "USB not connected", but it is. So how can I scan again? My friend has the same problem, and I really need my scanner.. please help if you can. I haven┬┤t been able to scan for awhile becouse my computer has been broken, and when I got it back I couldn`t scan at all. (Sorry my english sucks, hope you understand my problem)

    I ave a C4280. It's wirelessly connected - prints just fine. When I try to scan, it says "USB not connected" on the printer. I am wondering does the printer have to be connected via USB to the laptop in order to support scanning?

MP800R: Error code:201 - Printer can print but not Scan!MP800R: I can use the printer for printing al right, but when I try to scann I get a message that I should close the printer, and read the manual...


Error code:201 occurs due to USB conflict or software not running properly....

Solution#1: Take out the scanner from USB port... shut down the computer.... then restart the computer and plugin your USB plug in anyother USB port(not the ealier one).. Then check if that works.

Solution#2: Click on Start > Click on Run > Type Services.msc press ok.... on the services window check for "Still Image Service" right click on it and select properties .. then click on stop then start(if it is already stoped then click on start).... also make sure the Startup Type: Automatic....

USB NOT CONNECTED ERROR WHEN IT IS CONNECTED


This is a HP hardware/software error and HP has not fixed it.

The C4250 may report that "USB is not connected" but the printer works just fine and when you use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard to carry out a scan, it works just fine too. So the error message is wrong.

The Microsost Scanner and Camera Wizard can be found on the Control Panel.

I now have 2 of these and both print ok but can not scan with either, never tried to till now.
I have re- downloaded the driver from HP.com via Internet Explorer (usually use Mozilla Firefox) and i get 2 diff. error messages : network busy (impossible since it is connected via USB) and the 1 at my office connects wirelessly but error message is something to do with software.
Thanks!
