Re: won't scan

Do you have the scanner driver loaded? Try uninstalling your drivers unplug the printer. Then re-install the printer software then plug it back in!!

Barcode scanner won't read printed labels

1. The printhead in your printer might be scratched (evidenced by thin white streaks through your print). This is common, and the most likely cause. Printhead must be replaced.
2. Material might be stuck on your printhead (usually evidenced by wide white streak vertically through print). Printing surface of printhead can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton ball.
3. The ribbon might be wrinkling due to uneven tension, producing intermittent diagonal streaks in your print. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment and/or proper media loading solves ribbon wrinkles.
4. Poor pressure and/or printhead alignment. Evidenced by grainy, light or no print on one side or the other of the media. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment solves printhead pressure and alignment issues.

How to put printer in print mode

Actually, it does not matter what mode your printer is on when printing from your computer. Whenever your printer detects a print job sent to it, the printer will automatically acknowledge the signal and print the file - no matter if it's on Copy, Scan or Fax Mode.

How do I copy documents?

Unfortunately you won't be able to copy directly from this machine since it's only a printer. If you have access to a scanner you can use it to scan your document, save it to your machine, and then print it on this device. Otherwise you'll need to purchase a Multi-Function machine that includes a Scan/Copy feature.

The HP Officejet 4355 can print, scan, copy and fax.

You need to install the printer software to print and scan. Copy and faxing does not required software installation.

I suspect this is not the printer problem. The problem may be the operating system issue. (Memory management)
