Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet

2 Answers

Exactly the same helpppppppppppppppp

Have an HP Photosmart C4440 all in one printer, scanner, copier and for some reason every time I scan or copy a document, picture, etc. it comes out solid black. It worked fine when I got it and all of a sudden it started doing this.

I also printed an alignment page. When it told me to scan the alignment page, I tried that too, but it did not recognize it. Printer always gives me a display that says ''turn off and back on again''

Printing is also sometimes a task. It will often tell me to turn on and back off again when trying to print a document.

I'm ready to throw it out the window! Please help if anyone has a solution. Thank you!

I'd suggest you to take the printer to some other pc alongwith its driver CD install it on that PC and check for the results. Its the easiest way to find out whether the pc is the prob or printer. if the pc is the trouble which i think it is, the printer is all ok. then just repair the operating system.

When it was working correctly, did you see any lamp lighting-up the surface that is being scanned?
Now, do you see that lamp working as before?
If so, then getting an "all-black" scan means that the scanner is not detecting any "light" parts on the document being scanned.

Yes, it's time to take the printer to a recycling-station;
advertise the ink-cartridges and power-cord and power-adapter online, e.g., 'www.CraigsList.org' or a local "FreeCycle" mailing-list.

Printer and copier work fine- scanner says USB not connected.


I had this same problem and it is fixable, but not the way you would probably like, though you can still scan with the printer. You just have to open the Paint program and click from scanner or camera, and then choose your printer and click scan preview, and then scan, it works just fine but its a little time consuming.

My printer works but my scanner doesn't


Do one thing, remove the software from control panel add/remove programs. Then reboot the machine. Put a CD again, connect your all in one and run the setup.

HP PhotoSmart C4440, All in one will not scan image to computer. I receive an error message stating: HP CUE - Scanning Flow Component has encountered a problem and needs to close. Details from error...


I did not find a "solution" to the HP CUE - Scanning Flow Component problem. However, I did find a work around the problem. I use my graphics editing program to Import/ Acquire/ From Twain and this will allow me to scan from the printer to my graphics program. I can save the image from there.
Better than not being able to scan to my pc at all ...
