If you have installed your printer correctly, is your Page aligned, if not try page alignment by loading A4 paper into the tray and adjust the tray to fit with your paper, then restart your printer.

Note that you do not need the photo smart essential to perform your scanning, all you need is to press the scan button and the scanning page automatically open on your PC

The scan function won't work on my HP Deskjet F4280. When I press the scan button, all that happens is the light on the power button starts flashing. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

How do I get my hp f4280 to scan to my comp.


Hello Lulu !

To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned
on. The HP Photosmart Software must also be installed and running on your computer
prior to scanning. To verify that the HP Photosmart Software is running on a indowscan
computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the system tray at the lower
right side of the screen, near the time.

To scan to a computer
1.
Load your original print side down on the right front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan.
A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it. Any
edits that you make apply to the current scan session only.
The HP Photosmart Software has many tools that you can use to edit your scanned
image. You can improve the overall image quality by adjusting the brightness,
sharpness, color tone, or saturation. You can also crop, rotate, or resize the image.
3. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are finished.

Heres a link you will find everything you need to know about the f4280 (scan features starts on page 63) :

HP F4280 only scans part of image. How can I get it to scan a whole A4 sheet?


I had the same problem with my HP F4280. Go into control panel, click on devices and printers, then click on the HP F4280. An option to scan will come up, including a preview option so you can select the area of the scan. It'll work fine if you do it this way instead of pressing the scan button.

Then make a shortcut to the printer on your desktop so the next time you want to scan you just click on the shortcut

Scanner doesn't scan that well.


if this is a wireless printer you still have to connect the usb cord between the printer and the computer to use the scan function.

I am trying to put a picture from my printer to my computer how do I do it.


To scan a picture into you computer, follow these steps below:
Follow the steps below to scan an image from the control panel:
1.
Lift the lid on the HP Desskjet F4180.
2.
Place the original on the glass with the side to be scanned facing the scanner glass and on the left front corner of the glass.
NOTE: For quality copies, ensure that the scanner glass is clean and that there are no foreign materials adhering to it.
3. Close the lid.
4. Press the Scan button located on the Printer. A preview image of the scan appears on the computer where it can be edited. The edits made apply to the current scan session only.
Make edits as desired to the preview image and click Accept .
NOTE: The Scan button does not work with the Windows 2000 operating system. The software CD contains drivers for Windows 2000 only and therefore has limited functions.
Cheers!

I have an hp f4280 and everything is installed. i cannot get it to scan, everytime i press the scan button the power button goes from being lit to blinking. i dont know what im doing wrong. is there...


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP f4280) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
