Question about HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP 4180 will not print properly or scan

This problem just hit out of the blue for no apparent reason. Printer and scanner have been working fine for months and suddenly about a week ago, I lost first the black ink flow it seemed like as photos were only printing in blue and red tones so we changed the black ink cartridge and that didn't remedy the problem. It has gotten worse now and all we can get from the printer are yellow tones.

Scanner will not work at all, lights on printer are all functioning and when we press the scan button, green button flashes as if it is going to scan but then nothing happens.

We tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer and that did not help at all.

Anyone have any ideas on this one? I sure hate to have to trash this printer and buy a new one, it actually prints half decent photo quality.

I have the same problem. i would click SCAN and it would just blink and nothing else would happen.

I got this error with a re installation of Windows Vista 64-Bit. I got the Tray App error too, but it disappeared 2 months ago. Also my CD rom does not work so i can not use the CD to install the drives but I did it online.

It still does not work....

Scanner does not work when requested from HP Director


Make sure the cable is plugged all the way in to the printer it gets loose for some reason and have had this problem my self many times. I replaced the US plug and mine went away but test the cable first.you can go to WWW.hp.com and support and read the Trouble bullitins for this printer and you will find a white paper or TSB on this.

Most of the time I solve this problem by cleaning the scanner. You have to clean it real good. Take out the scanner bulbs and clean underneath the bulb sockets. You may not be able to do this. You may want to call a tech.

HP Photsmart 4180 will print but not scan.


Your CD's drivers probably aren't approved for Vista. Below is a link to the HP support site's Vista driver download page for your all in one.

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.

HP F4180 Printer printing small


Hi Lady Luxe,

Try running the Manual Uninstall solution (click link below):
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=c00501015&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Then run the HP Installer from your disk (v. 8.0). You may want to also restart your Mac after installation is successful (make sure you complete the Setup Assistant - don't skip it!).

Try to scan from the glass scanner bed to see that your connection is solid. Try to print now and it should be fine.
