Question about HP Photosmart C5280 InkJet Printer
When i try and scan it will say unable to scan or copy
There is a workaround without messing with drivers. I have the same problem if I use the buttons on the v40 and try to scan. I get the V40 can not connect to the PC message.
Go to Control Panel-->Scanners and Cameras
In there you will find: Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet V40 Scanner
Right click and select Scan. It will then start the scan wizard which will scan your document.

hey i also had this type of problem. but i solved it and hope it will solve yours too.
first of all uninstall all ur hp drivers and softwares related to the hp printer. then restart your pc. now disconnect ur printer with ur computer and turn it off and again on after 15 secs.
now insert the cd which i have got with the hp printer in the cd-driver of ur pc and install the driver.
after the installation is complete, connect ur printer, but do not remove ur cd.
then start scanning, and if it will again ask for installing driver, u dont have to worry it will install it from the cd.
this would surely help u, if problem persists, please tell me.
