Question about HP Photosmart 4180 All-in-One Printer
Despite downloading the full driver package for windows vista as opposed to the lite version it wont scan. When I press the scan button on the printer the on / off button on the printer flashes for approx 30 seconds then stops flashing! Help!! The printer prints with no problem but it just wont scan!
HP does not support Vista operating system, no software or drivers for it are offered at all. If Vista, you also cannot use either the scan button on the "All-in-One" or the usual method of HP Solution Center. HP has discontinued the F4180 and supports it only minimally.
You can scan via Windows Photo Gallery, or though Paint, or through Windows Fax and Scan. File - Import from camera or scan, or File - scan, are paths.
I have loved this printer/scanner but plan myself to avoid anything HP makes in the future because of this "support".
