Frankly Vista is a dog, and I'm not surprised at your difficulty. Have you tried installing the printer from Vista itself, rather than using the Printer CD? This can work if the printer CD is for XP (as many are).

How do I name and save a scanned document in HP C4480 (Windows)?


Hello, Robert -

I hope I am correct in assuming you have the user's manual for the HP Photosmart C4480. Just in case you do not, this is the link to the web page where you can download and save the manual (PDF format - Adobe Acrobat Reader software needed, free):
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-photosmart-c4400-all-in-one-printer-series/3655558/model/3655559/manuals

After downloading the PDF document save it (Save As) to your Documents folder and give it a name you can find again easily - maybe: HP Photosmart C4480 Manual.

How to save a PDF file:
- With your computer, open the PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Move cursor to upper left corner of page and left click or tap on FILE
- In drop down File menu, move cursor to SAVE AS and left click or tap on it
- In Save As window which opens, move cursor down to CHOOSE A DIFFERENT FOLDER and left click on tap on that "button"
- In window which opens choose DOCUMENTS in the Documents Library
- In File name box near the bottom of the Documents Library pop-up window, enter the name with which you want to save the PDF document, Example: HP Photosmart C4480 Manual
- Left click or tap on the SAVE button

Note: The steps above will be similar to what you will need to do after scanning any document.

The instructions for scanning start in Chapter 10, Page 64 (Image 304 of the PDF format manual).

Open the scanner through your computer. It is easier to save the document later by operating the scan functions through your computer.

With the scan application open on your computer run the scan process. After scanning the document, you will need to save it. First, you will need to determine the format in which you want to save the scanned document: PDF, JPEG (photo image), GIF, etc.

After choosing the format for the scanned document, in the proper file name box, enter the name for the document you wish to save.
Examples:
Correspondence 2018-Feb-18 Brother
Photo Brothers-Family 2018-Feb-18
Deed of Sale 2018-Feb-18 House

Get the idea? I like to give a date to my scanned document names to help identify them better.

Once you have entered the file name, click or tap on the SAVE button.

Note: I always like to open the saved document from the Documents folder to verify it was saved. Plus, my scanner attaches a number at the end of every file name. After closing out the saved document and closing the scanner winder, I go back and Edit the file name, removing the added number (digits) from the saved file name.

The video you will find with this link:
http://esvideo.es/video/watch/ult2ORqN1eGRiLQ=
is for those who use Windows 8 or 10. Even if you use another Windows operating system (I use Windows 7), you can probably figure out what to do. The video goes through the scanning and saving process step-by-step.

Best wishes.

  1. Make sure that the product is connected to the computer.
  2. Turn the product on.
  3. Load the picture or document:
    • Scanner glass : Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass, and then position it according to the engraved guides around the glass (usually on the right-front corner or the left-front corner). Close the scanner lid.
    • ADF : Place the item into the document feeder tray. The printed side faces up and the top edge goes into the tray first. Adjust the width guides to fit the item. CAUTION: Do not load photos in the ADF. Use the scanner glass instead to prevent damage to photos.
Step two: Scan the item

    • Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP folder, and then click HP Solution Center
    • Double-click the HP Solution Center icon (c01810967.gif ) on your desktop.

    • For a text document with or without graphics : Click the on-screen Scan Document "button" in HP Solution Center.

    1. Cancel the scan, return to the home screen of HP Solution Center, and then click the Settings option.
    2. For the HP Solution Center "button" that you are using ("Scan Picture" or "Scan Document"), set the option to prompt for settings each time you scan, and then click OK .
    3. Start the scan again.
  4. Read through the various options for the scan settings. Make selections for at least the following items:
    • Scan to: Select your scan destination from the drop-down list.
    • File Type: Select the file type from the drop-down list.
    • ...Save Options...: (available only for certain "Scan to" destinations): For example, if you are saving to a file, click this option to select your Save Location .
    • Show preview...: Select this check box if you want to see a preview before the actual scan.
    c01940398.gifImportant : HP Solution Center software versions vary, depending on the age of your product, and whether you installed updated software after the initial setup. For specific instructions on all the settings the software offers, click the Help button on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
  5. Click Scan . The preview screen might display, if you selected an option to show a preview. Use the options on the preview screen to make any desired adjustments before you complete the scan.
After the scan completes, it goes to the destination that you specified in the settings. hpweb_1-2_plus.gifhpweb_1-2_minus.gif Using the scan button on your printer HP recommends that you first get comfortable with using the "Scan Picture" and "Scan Document" on-screen "buttons" in HP Solution Center as explained in the previous steps.

To get started, click Settings , click Scan Settings , click Button Settings , and then click the tab for Front Panel Scan Buttons . Read through the options, and then create the settings that you want.

How can I scan a document?


First do you have the full software installed or just a generic OS driver? http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=emea_middle_east&product=3177566&os=219&lang=en has the drivers for supported OS versions. Sometimes the generic driver only runs the printer.

It is best to start your scanner from the computer the first time. The buttons on the scanner will only work after you set the destinations in the software, if the monitoring program is running. Place your document face down on the glass (or face up in an ADF). Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP folder > Solution Center or by double-clicking the shortcut on the desktop) Click the appropriate button (Scan Picture or Scan Document) and adjust the settings as needed. Click Scan. Use the Help function to set up the destinations for using the buttons on the all-in-one.

If you want to scan without using the HP Solution Center, you can't use the buttons on the scanner. Paint (XP, Vista or Win7) will acquire scans (File > Import from Camera or Scanner). Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan as well (New Scan). Vista comes with Photo Gallery (and the program is available as a free download for Win7) that can also acquire scans.

I hope this helps.

My hp psc will not scan an object everything else seems to work how do i fix it


Double Click on HP Solution Center icon to open. The HP icon will be on your desktop or in your start menu. It is the icon that materializes after you use the CD to install your HP scanner or multifunction printer. (It may appear slightly different depending on the model and type of HP scanner or printer).
Place the document or photo on the glass platen in the proper corner. There is an arrow that illustrates proper placement in HP scanners and printers.
Click the settings button on the bottom of the HP Solution center screen. It appears as a wrench. This will assist in setting up your scanner or all-in-one HP printer to scan at the touch of a button. Follow the on-screen prompts for photos and documents. Then, scan by clicking the Scan Picture or Scan Document button as appropriate.
Select the proper choice once you scan, such as save to file (specify where) or email (You also can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computer will create a default my scans folder and organize them by saving them by date and month scan.
Click scan and then wait for box to appear. You will see the document or photo being saved and the blue bar will display progress in the HP screen.
Save the file if the HP software has not already done this for you. Put it in a folder you create and give it a name you will remember.
Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.
Repeat the process for multiple pages. Keep the HP Solution Center screen open until your scans are finished.
