HP C4280 error USB not connected

HP C4280 All-in-one printer has error USB not connected when trying to scan documents. Is there a driver I can download to fix this problem? I'm running Windows Vista 64 bit system on a Dell. I hate windows vista!

    Are you able to scan with Vista's built-in scanning utility or is it any scanning software that causes the error? Window's Vista 64 bit tends to have issues with some drivers.

You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.

If you have the Win7 full-feature driver installed, try installing the Software Patch. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-77751-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=4063&product=3737195

If you managed to get the minimal driver set or the OS driver, uninstall that and disconnect the printer from the computer and install the full featured software
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=4063&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3737195

If you can't download the full file and get an installation error from an incomplete file due to connection errors, the link to the full software above also has a link to order a new CD with the drivers.

Sometimes the scan error (when the printer itself works) indicates that the HP monitor isn't running (due to incomplete install or turning off the program (not letting it run at boot, for example). The other cause is a poor connection since scanners need bi-directional communication with the computer. Try a new data cable, plugging into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

Trying to scan a document with an HP C4280 says USB cable not connected but it is


USB cable may be bad, try a new one and see if it helps.

These cables are normaly universal, check and see if you may have one from an old printer just laying around before buying a new one.

Hope this helps@

HP C4280 does not scan


Hello !

Your print driver may be corrupted. So, give this a try:

Delete your AIO icon from Printers and Faxes

Download the latest driver for your operating system from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3192753&

Disconnect your USB printer cable

Restart your computer

Reconnect your USB printer cable

Your computer should see your AIO and install the new driver.

If your computer does not see your AIO, your USB printer cable is faulty or try another USB port on your computer.

Hope this helps.

HP Printer C4280 says "USB not connected"


Install software that is twain compliant.
Maybe the HP bundle that came with the printer.
Also Paint Shop Pro,Adobe Acrobat.Photoshop etc.
Use the usb cable after the install of the HP drivers then you may change the default location of where scans are saved.

Printer keeps saying usb not conected


Can you print from it? It sounds like you just need to install the software that came with it, it has all the drivers you need or go to hp website and download the newest drivers. Update your drivers and then it will recognize it.
