HP C7180 photosmart Scan problem

first: the C7180 will only work in ONE mode: wireless or wired. End of story there.
second: I spent almost 4 hours, yesterday, fixing this problem - "would not scan to computer because printer did not recognize computer for scanning yet would print & copy ok". I did solve the problem! Here is what I did: 1) removed all software related to C7180 ( make sure it is all gone ). 2) turned off all firewalls & security measures to ensure a clean, uninterrupted reinstall ( be sure internet connection is off for this to be safe ). 3) reloaded software ( hopefully you have the cd for this ). 4) followed all prompts for reload of software & then rebooted computer & tested copy mode, fax and finally scan. 5) went to HP site & made sure I had all updates & everything was ok with drivers. It was. I now have a clean install & all works as it should. The whole process ( after I figured out that it was a software problem ) took about 1 hour. Don't forget to reset your computer security! Be sure your firewall knows all HP software is good & firewall will let it thru.
This should do it.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan

i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
over and over again

and then it hit me !!!

why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

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.

Last night everything worked fine and I printed many pages. I just now turned my HP 5510 all in on on and the (3) lighted buttons, Copy, Fax, Scan, started flashing. Error message # Oxa0000146 is...

Suspect the printer's program is scrambled (didn't "boot" right)

Could there have been any power fluxuations/lightning during the night? Even if it wasn't on, if it was plugged in the wall then there could have been damage. Are you using a universal power device or a current protector?

Unplug the unit from the wall, wait 20 to 30 seconds for the power capacitors to disipate their energy and then plug it back in. This will do a HARD reset.
