I can't scan anything on my HP PHOTOSMART C4345 All-In-One


Try this: Power down the computer and printer, connect the usb to a different usb port. Reboot. The Mac should register the changed location.
The older apples used to be very sensitive to port selection and peripherials serviced. Perhaps they still are.

HP PHOTOSMART C4280 ALL IN ONE WHEN USING IMAC 10.5.7, PRINTER SHOWS MESSAGE USB NOT CONNECTED


You need to try isolating the problem first.

1. Try connecting the USB cable into different USB port of your Mac Leopard.
2. Make sure that your computer could detect other USB devices.
3. Try connecting the printer into different computer to see if the printer would be detected or not.
4. Use different USB cable.

If you get the same problem, you need to contact the printer manufacturer. I believe that it is more on physical connection.

Have a great day!

USB NOT CONNECTED ERROR WHEN IT IS CONNECTED


This is a HP hardware/software error and HP has not fixed it.

The C4250 may report that "USB is not connected" but the printer works just fine and when you use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard to carry out a scan, it works just fine too. So the error message is wrong.

The Microsost Scanner and Camera Wizard can be found on the Control Panel.

Can't scan from HP psc 2400 to iMac computer


You need to set up the software on the iMac. The reason it gives you that error message is because it can't communicate with the computer and imaging software as the computer doesn't see the scanner and can't communicate with the printer's control interface. The iMac may see the printer and be able to print without any additional software because the driver package for the printer portion may already be installed with the OS X HP printer driver support. You didn't mention whether or not you could print from OS X. I am assuming you can. Faxing and copying from the unit doesn't use the computer at all and doesn't need to communicate with it. Scanning and printing do. If you can't print either then none of the driver or support software is installed and you have to set it up. You can get the instructions for setting the printer up in OS X 10.5 from HP. Just click here and it will take you to the page with the instructions.

Best wishes and cheers

My 3210 will not scan


I now have 2 of these and both print ok but can not scan with either, never tried to till now.
I have re- downloaded the driver from HP.com via Internet Explorer (usually use Mozilla Firefox) and i get 2 diff. error messages : network busy (impossible since it is connected via USB) and the 1 at my office connects wirelessly but error message is something to do with software.
Thanks!

USB Not Connected


first..check through the HP icon here, to see if that printer has a IMAC driver

that might get you there...I'm sure that the USB ports on your IMAC are working..

you can check them with some other device, of course.
