Question about HP PhotoSmart C4280 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Installed HP All-In-One printer C4280 and had a lot of performance problems. Attempted to uninstall and now I cannot read from any other application (MSWord, MSExcel). I cannot even view/download email (Outlook Express). Error messages indicate security hold on files. I use my computer for work and nw I cannot get to anything. I like the printer and would like to use it but I need access to my files. Would prefer not to have to reformat drive.

Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

Hp photosmart C4280 installed once worked great unplugged and moved problems. uninstalled reinstalled maybe 15 times now nothing works installation complete yet device icon says cannot detect device


HP printers can be very touchy about the way they are installed.

1) Disconnected the printer
2) Uninstall the software
3) Restart your computer
4) DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER
5) Install the driver and only connect the printer when the installation tells you to.

The other source of problem is where the printer is connected to the printer, if it is connected to a USB hub (especially an unpowered one) it may cause issues. Try connecting to one of the ports at the rear of your computer.

Check your cable, maybe try another one, it could have become damaged in the move.

Scanner says usb not connected


Ok - the reason this error pops up is because there is a software issue going on. If the software is correctly installed you will see options for where the scan will go in the computer.
Having said that there are several things that can cause a problem between the printer and the software;
1) You are connecting the printer by USB to router - you may print but will never be able to scan as this is not a networkable printer. Connect it directly to your computer and recomplete the setup portion to configure the scanner.
2) You have not finished the setup. At the end of the installer you can setup the scanner but if you skipped this step you will have to redo it in order for it to connect. Click on the device manager in your dock and then next to information and settings there will be a little wheel. Click on the wheel and go to setup assistant. Complete the assistant and try to scan.
3) The printer is not grabbing the new software options - leave the printer turned on but unplug the power cord and wait for 30 seconds. Plug printer back in - when you do this it should initialize and will look to the mac for changes and the options should load.
4) Software missing - You MUST have the software for the printer installed for scanning function. Adobe and other programs cannot replace it - it has to be installed.
5) Software is corrupted. Uninstall the software (uninstaller is under applications in the HP folder) and then download (www.hp.com) and install the most recent full feature software and drivers for your operating system.
6) If all these steps fail you may have an issue with your computer and it's TWAIN drivers.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


hi
i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
over and over again

and then it hit me !!!

why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

cheers
