How to scan


Here is the manual:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00238458.pdf

Page 45 will give you the scanning instructions.

1 Load your original face down in the right front corner of the glass.

2 In the Scan area, press the Scan To button.

The Scan To menu appears, listing destinations, including applications, for

anything you scan. The default destination is whichever one you selected the last

time you used this menu. You designate which applications and other

destinations appear on the Scan To menu by using the HP Image Zone on your

computer.

3 To select an application to receive the scan, use or to select it, and then

press OK or Start Scan.

A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Scan window on the computer,

where you can edit it.

For more information about editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image

Zone Help that came with your software.

4 Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have

finished, click Accept.

The HP all-in-one sends the scan to the selected application. For example, if you

chose the HP Image Zone software (Windows) or JPEG to HP Gallery
(Macintosh), it automatically opens and displays the image.

How do you scan an item to the computer


Use the scan features
Scanning is the process of converting text and pictures into an electronic format for
your computer. You can scan just about anything: photos, magazine articles, text
documents, and even 3D objects, as long as you are careful not to scratch the glass
on your HP All-in-One.
You can use the scanning features of your HP All-in-One to do the following:
● Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report.
● Print business cards and brochures by scanning a logo and using it in your
publishing software.
● Send photos to friends and relatives by scanning your favorite prints and
including them in e-mail messages.
● Create a photographic inventory of your house or office, or archive treasured
photos in an electronic scrapbook.
To use the scan features, your HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and
turned on. The HP All-in-One software must also be installed and running on your
computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP All-in-One software is running on a
Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray at the
lower right side of the screen, near the time. On a Mac, the HP All-in-One software is
always running.
Note Closing the HP Windows system tray icon can cause your HP All-in-
One to lose some of its scan functionality and result in the No Connection
error message. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting
your computer or by starting the HP Image Zone software.
For information on how to scan from the computer, and how to adjust, resize, rotate,
crop, and sharpen your scans, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help that came with
your software.
This chapter contains information on: sending a scan to and from different
destinations, and adjusting the preview image.
Scan to an application
You can scan originals placed on the glass directly from the control panel.
1. Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.
2. Press Start Scan on the control panel.
A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Document Viewer window on
the computer, where you can edit it.
For more information on editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image
Zone Help
that came with your software.
3. Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have
finished, click Accept.
The HP All-in-One sends the scan to the HP Image Zone software, which
automatically opens and displays the image.
User Guide 31
Scan
The HP Image Zone 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, straighten, rotate, or resize the image.
When the scanned image looks just the way you want it, you can open it in another
application, send it through e-mail, save it to a file, or print it. For more
information on using the HP Image Zone, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help.

How to scan soemthing onto a computer


Do you have the full-featured software driver installed? (Installed before connecting the printer to the computer.) Then you have the option of initiating the scan from the computer or the buttons on the unit. (The HP Digital Imaging Monitor Windows System icon should be in your system tray. If the program has been closed, restart the HP Image Zone software or reboot the computer.) There is a Start Scan button on the printer which should launch the HP software. Alternatively, start the Image Zone software and there should an option to start the scan.

These directions will only work if the computer and printer are both on and communicating with each other. If you get an error, try a new USB cable and try using a different USB port. If using a USB hub, try connecting to the computer directly. (If using a print server, try a direct connection. Check if the print server supports bi-directional communication; many only support the print functions not the scan options.)

I hope this helps.

Scanner error code


This generally indicates a driver error.
Download and run the Scan Diagnostic utility
  1. Download the HP Scan Diagnostic utility .
  2. When prompted, select Open or Run to start the download and run the installer, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. Try the scan again.
The Scan Diagnostic utility checks the physical connection between the device and the computer and address the issues with the following components of the scanning software:
  • PML (Printer Management Language)
  • Yellow DOT4 entries
  • Scan Folder
  • Registry Mismatch
  • HP Digital Imaging Monitor
  • Multiple HP Digital Imaging Monitors
If an error condition is identified with any of these items, a red X ( ) appears next to the item. If there is no error condition, a green check mark ( ) is displayed next to the item. The utility is equipped with a Fix button to correct the error conditions.
Run the Unexpected Internal Error and Communications Failure patch
  1. Download the patch for HP Image zone/photo, imaging unexpected internal error and communications failure.
  2. Double-click the patch to install it on the computer.
  3. Try the scan again.
Try scanning without HP Imaging software
Try to scan with the built-in feature of Windows operating system called Windows Image Acquisition (WIA). To perform a WIA scan, follow these steps.
  1. Make sure the product is turned on.
  2. Click Start , and then click Control Panel .
  3. Click Printers and Other hardware , and then click Scanners and Cameras .
  4. Look for an icon for the product.
    • If there is not an icon for the product, click here to uninstall and reinstall the software .
    • If there is an icon for the product, click the icon, and then follow the on-screen instructions to scan images or documents to the computer.

HP C4480 all-in-one scanning errors


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).
