I have a HP F4280 printer/copier/scanner. "MFC HP Scan application has stopped working." I get this message when I scan but only if I change settings, eg change colour to greyscale. It suggests...

I am not a tech geek so bear with me I am going to walk through it on my computer and tell you how to in theory get where you want to get. Hopefully it works, let me know either way. Unfortunately for you, I locate files via the explore feature so that is the only way I can find it again. Hopefully this works for you.

Right click on the Windows Icon in the bottom left hand corner of your computer (same as the start button for other features with a left click)

-Click on Explore
- Find and click on Program files
- Find and click on HP folder or Hewlett Packard Folder

-Find and Click on Digital Imaging Folder
-Double Click on BIN folder
-Find the following file: hpqscnvw
-Double click on that file (hpqscnvw)

Your HP scanning feature should open

I am thinking I may just create a shortcut of this and launch from that instead of HP solutions center if HP cannot fix this issue.

Let me know if this works for you.

My printer won't scan

if there is a message the one seds no connection that is because you are conected to the computer with the serial cable or usb cable but the settings on your computer is for the oposite this means you have to go to start ,printers ,where you can see the name of your printer do a right click with the mouse and click properties go to ports and look for the check mark on the port name on the left square box there is LPT, COM, USB port check on the one your printer is using and that all your computer will be have comunication with your printer

Can't scan

This sort of thing can be down to the fact the settings for communication to the printer is separate for printing/faxing/scanning. So you will need to find the scanning device (will usually be called HP3050 regardless, or something along the lines of that) and make sure it's set to communicate through USB and no other means.
