    I made the mistake of pluging the USB cable before installing the cd. The printer lights do not stop blinking. I have turned the printer off for more than 10 min and when is turned on all the lights start binking. I installed the cd in my computer and the printer is not recognize by the computer. This sucks

Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP f4280) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

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.

How do I get my hp f4280 to scan to my comp.


Hello Lulu !

To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned
on. The HP Photosmart Software must also be installed and running on your computer
prior to scanning. To verify that the HP Photosmart Software is running on a indowscan
computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the system tray at the lower
right side of the screen, near the time.

To scan to a computer
1.
Load your original print side down on the right front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan.
A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it. Any
edits that you make apply to the current scan session only.
The HP Photosmart Software has many tools that you can use to edit your scanned
image. You can improve the overall image quality by adjusting the brightness,
sharpness, color tone, or saturation. You can also crop, rotate, or resize the image.
3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.

Heres a link you will find everything you need to know about the f4280 (scan features starts on page 63) :

HP F4280 only scans part of image. How can I get it to scan a whole A4 sheet?


I had the same problem with my HP F4280. Go into control panel, click on devices and printers, then click on the HP F4280. An option to scan will come up, including a preview option so you can select the area of the scan. It'll work fine if you do it this way instead of pressing the scan button.

Then make a shortcut to the printer on your desktop so the next time you want to scan you just click on the shortcut

Nothing happens when i press scan on a hp f4280 have i missed something?


Install the software/driver for scanner and you can try scanning (Mspaint go to File> From Scanner or Camera>) if your device is configured right and software is installed correctly it should detect the default scanner.

HP Deskjet F4280 all-in-one - when I preview a scan in "scanners and cameras" it previews fine but when I press the button to scan, the on/off light just blinks rapidly at me and nothing happens.


If you have installed your printer correctly, is your Page aligned, if not try page alignment by loading A4 paper into the tray and adjust the tray to fit with your paper, then restart your printer.

Note that you do not need the photo smart essential to perform your scanning, all you need is to press the scan button and the scanning page automatically open on your PC
