Question about HP Photosmart C4180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Program name? I have an HP C4180 and when I would go into HP Solution Center, there would be three programs listed under software. Now there is only two programs: Photosmart Essentials and Photosmart Express. I liked using the third program for ocr recognition and cannot remember the name of it.

The software that comes with your printer is a suit of sotware and not different programs to be installed isolated.
So, f you have the original CD, unsistall and reinstall the printer driver and software.
If you don't have the CD, you can dowload the driver and software from HP supporrt pages. There is a link bellow.
Choose your sofware driver/language and select your system OS:

If you have the disk chuck it in and take a look at the 'utilities' available to install. If you don't have it, browse to the HP website, go to 'support' and enter the model number - there will be a load of drivers and applications free to download.
Best of luck

I am unable to bring up the HP Solution Center program which is software program scaning pictures,documents,etc.


Hello, Chuck. To check whether HP Solution Center displays in the list of installed programs: Click the Windows icon , click All Programs , and then click the HP folder. If HP Solution Center is in the list of HP programs, you have it installed. When you installed your printer's driver and if you selected Custom, you may have excluded the program. HP Solution Center is part of the Full Feature and Software Drivers program. If not installed, or to reinstall your printer's driver, including the HP Solution Center, go to www.hp.com, search for your printer and operating system and look for Full Featured Driver. Download and install. If this is not enough information, please let us know what printer you have and your operating system, as well as any errors you are getting when trying to open the HP Solutions center. Hope this helps..

HP C5180 scanner won't scan an image


I'm running Windows Vista 64bit Ultimate Edition. Have the C5180, all-in-one. HP Solution Center continually closed, saying No HP Devices Found. I completely uninstalled the printer software, using the install utility. Then, using Add/Remove Programs, removed all of the other HP software on my PC. Then deleted the HP directory (in program files x86), and removed the HP registry key under software in both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE & HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Then rebooted. Once that was done and back up, I reran the install utility, but this time I followed the steps below (from here - http://hpanswers.blogspot.com/2007/12/no-hp-devices-detected-hp-solution.html):

Click on next until you get the below three options
(i) Recommended

(ii)Custom-------------->Select This

( iii)uninstall

Choose the custom install and click on next, ****

At begining of the installation, It gives you to 2 options

I) Yes, Check for updates..........

II) No, I prefer to do it Myself--Select this option and click on next

Immediatley in the next window ,you will have long list of softwares with the empty check boxes beside them.DO NOT select(check) Hp update, check rest of them and click on next to continue the installation.

You will able to open the HP solution centre with No errors.

Additionally, I did the following 2 steps, that I mostly found here (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00897551&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=oj-54112-1&os=2093&product=1153481&rule=9653&lang=en)

Add the following files to the Trusted programs list:

*
hpqkygrp.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
*
hpqscnvw.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
*
hpqste08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
*
hpqtra08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.
*
hpqthb08.exe , located in the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory.


Open the following ports on the firewall utility by following the instructions provided by the manufacturer:

*
UDP ports: 161, 427 and 137
*
TCP ports: 9220, 9500 and 9290

Scanning


My Photosmart 2575 v has worked fine as well for over a year and now it won't scan. I get the same message: "Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot". I ran all updates and they said I have them all and everything is working perfectly. It's not though. I still can't scan. I tried their work-around by opening paint and then acquring image from the scanner but that does not work either.
