There is a specific procedure for setting up HP printers. Documents can be found Here. There also may be additional software required depending on your OS.

Unplug the USB cable to the printer. Uninstall the HP printer software. Reboot. Reinstall the HP printer software and WAIT until the installation program tells you to plug in the USB cable.

My printer works fine using the "print" button on screen and the "copy" button on the computer. When I select the "scan" button on the printer it tells me the USB cable is not connected.


Check the owner's manual if the scanner requires USB 2.0 to operate correctly. If it does your USB cable needs to be 2.0 specification instead of the original 1.1 specification. That would go for the computer as well.

If the above comments don't apply uninstall the software for both the printer and scanner; restart the computer; re-install all the software; restart the computer... and it should work unless the scanner part of the printer has a problem.

Printer and copier work fine- scanner says USB not connected.


I had this same problem and it is fixable, but not the way you would probably like, though you can still scan with the printer. You just have to open the Paint program and click from scanner or camera, and then choose your printer and click scan preview, and then scan, it works just fine but its a little time consuming.

C4200 - says USB not connected when trying to scan


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.

Printer keeps saying usb not conected


Can you print from it? It sounds like you just need to install the software that came with it, it has all the drivers you need or go to hp website and download the newest drivers. Update your drivers and then it will recognize it.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


hi
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 !!

cheers

Usb port


thats very simple friend, just go back to your system and search for a flat connector called usb with a symbol to make you identify it on the cable of the scanner and on the back of the system

Connecting USB during install freezes computer


There are many possible reasons why your computer will shut down when your USB is used but most probably your PC power supply might not have enough power, try unplug other devices such as printers, scanners, other input/output devices except the mouse & keyboard.
