Remove the printer to the trash. Disconnect and reconnect the printer. Everything will work fine.

Thanks

C4480 scan problem with mac OS X 10.6.4


Reset your printer by turning it off, unplugging power from the back of the printer for 30 seconds, plug back in and turn on.

Next, reset the printing system:

- Sys Prefs, Print & Fax
- Right (control) click in the rectangle listing your printers and select Reset Printing System.
WARNING - this will delete ALL of your printers!
-Select the plus sign to re-add it. Look for the printer, select it andwait until the "Add" button becomes available. Click it.

if still problem unsolved you can update the driver of your product by following the link copy and past the url in browser

Printer will not scan to computer.


You will probably have to go to this page to download the new Mac drivers for Snow Leopard to get the full functionality of your All-in-one printer back.

Print functions are generic enough where you don't need to have the most updated driver for it to work. But the scanning functionalities are more complicated.

Find the driver for your computer here:

HP PSC 1315, scanner and Mac os


To scan documents on Mac OS X using your HP PSC 1315, you need to download HP's "Device Manager" software which is available here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-41992-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=374572&os=219&lang=en

I just installed the software and am now scanning problem-free.
