HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP M475dn software freezes my computer

First installation was direct from printer. Everything seemed to functioning correctly, until my computer started to freeze while attempting to scan. I couldn't even shut down the computer by the "shutting down" function, I had to hold the power button to shut off. I then uninstalled the printer and re-installed, downloading the software directly from HP website. Disable the direct install option on printer and added the HP software to the exception list on my virus scan. After installation, everything appear to function properly again. Later that same day, the computer started to freeze again and could not do a proper shut down. What else can I do besides, returning printer and start all over?

SOURCE: No picture image when scanning

This looks like a CCD failure. Can the image be corrected in the PC software Which image editor are you using?

SOURCE: HP Solutions Center can not communicate with HP 3500c Scanner

Had exact same problem. Went to HP site and they said to check "add or remove programs" functions (in control panel) and if there are multiple copies of HP software to download their fix. I checked, had multiple copies, downloaded patch and all worked well again.

SOURCE: HP 4570c scans totally black or bluish-green with vertical bars

It could be one of two things:

1) The scanner isn't registering black or white during the initialization processing depending on what color it needs to get it started.

2) The CCD unit in the scanner could be failing which could explain why it was only working briefly before getting worse.

M475dn paper torn in duplex, how can you get it out

First you want to make sure that you remove the paper in the normal direction of travel to avoid damaging sensors. Try to find either a thin stiff piece of cardboard or plastic, like a store loyalty card and push that through in the direction of travel to push the paper out. Be very cautious about using any type of knife or metal object because if you break any plastic guides or scratch the plastic inside the ADF it might lead to future jams. I typically recommend that customers scan perforated items off the glass not through the ADF.

Laserjet pro black vertical lines using adf

Do regular prints look ok? If so, then try copying something from the flatbed glass. If that copy has no line then you have something on the glass where the paper passes over when fed through the adf, clean the glass well, you may need to use some rubbing alcohol because often fine bits of adhesive from things like sticky notes will cause the lines but are not obvious to the eye when you inspect the glass.

My laserjet pro 400 color mpf m475dn printer is indicating " paper back door to clear jam," please describe how i will go about this process.

There is an access door in the back of the printer. Open the door and you should see jammed paper. If not then you have a faulty sensor or switch.
