When I try to scan from the two pc's that use the same HP 4500 photosmart on a wireless network I get an error mesage. Yet when I connect a laptop with the usb cable into the printer HP 4500 it scans...


Base from the description of your problem this is some kind of issue with the software , and according to you already tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

So if you have not done reinstalling using the software from HP site better reinstall the softwrae using that and check if that corrects the issue.

Cannot scan wirelessly from HP Photosmart 4580 wirelessly


I reinstalled the printer software and reconnected the wireless connection and it now works well. I read somewhere that registry cleaner software may remove HP files that are required so this time after the registry cleaner scan, I unchecked any HP entry or printer entry and the scanner is still working, however, only from the pc to the printer, I still cannot scan using the buttons on the printer.
