Question about HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I've got a problem with my HP C4580 printer; it works fine if I connect it via USB, but when I try to install it as a wifi (infrastructure connection) printer, it fails the installation:everything goes fine until I have to print the "config sheet", and there I get an error message saying that the printer can't be installed. If I go to the printer panel, it is completely "frozen" with the wifi lamp turned on... nothing happens whatever button I press and the only thing I can do is to unplug the power cable. Can you help? Thank you

SOURCE: HP C4580 - INSTALL PROBLEM

I don't know if you had your problen fixed, but I just bought this printer this week and was having problems setting it up with the instructions. I finally decided that I would just set it up to my laptop with the USB cable attached. The software that came with the printer was already in my computer. We'll the computer started up the software, It fully installed it, step by step. Now I have a wireless connection with the printer on all 3 of the laptops in the house. Just put the USB on your computer and on the printer. Make sure the software is installed and it will walk you through the installation. Install this way on all of your laptops. I'm so happy that I finally can print wirelessly without using the goofy instruction booklet. Good luck, hope this helps some one else.

SOURCE: HP PSC 750 will not scan.

OK I'll Give you three steps to try and then I'll give you a recommendation

With the usb cable connected unplug the power cable from the printer while it is on and wait for 30 seconds now unplug the power cable from the wall jack and then replug the power cable from the walljack and then to the printer.
now check if your printer gives the same error.

try another usb cable for the printer

Hold the usb cable with your hand and see if the status changes .If it doesn't

Its the usb port of your printer gone bad.
Its a nice printer hardly any problems to Hp customers at all,but unfortunately well you know what Im gonna say.

Anyway call in to hp at 1800-474-6836 and directly ask for an upgrade nothing else and you will get a 50% discount on an all In one printer.
with a years hardware and software problems covered.
you can extend this plan on the spot.
Now If you face any hardware or software issues then your printer will be replaced free of cost for hardware problems.
If its a software issue the hp tech will take a remote access of your computer and make your printer work perfectly.

Hope this will make you a little happy.

Trying to link my acer laptop to my hp c4580 printer. dont know my SSID number. Help!


I'm assuming you're trying to do this wirelessly?  The SSID is what your wireless router calls itself.  You can find what this is by clicking on the wifi icon near the clock on your computer and seeing which one you're connected to.  I can't give exact instructions, because you didn't say what operating system you're on; but just click on the wifi and it'll tell you in one of the options.

We have a hp c4580 wireless printer and we are having problems with getting it to work. Can you please advice what to do. Bethany


Basically, you need to configure the HP C4580 printer with the same wireless settings of your network. Thus, you need to get the following information from your wireless router:

SSID or wireless network name
Type of Wireless Security
Wireless Security key/passphrase/password

To set those settings on the printer itself, you need to temporarily connect first your printer to the computer through USB. Then run the HP Printer Setup CD. It'll ask for you to install the required software then it'll ask for you to configure the printer on a wireless network. From then on, you will need to input the wireless settings that you got from your router.

HP C4580 won't go online


Thank you Nadine,

yes - the plot is thickening now!

To your problem:
The printer itself will never go online. If you want to print something from the internet (a web page i.e.), your computer is establishing that connection via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), like the page you see right now.
If you want to print something, you have to choose the "Print" command form the "File" menu in your application or hit the "Ctrl" key and "P" at the same time.

In the upcoming dialog you can choose your printer and the printing preferences. Try it right now and print this page. (Make sure you select "1 to 1" in the "Print Range" options, otherwise you might end up with a lot of scratch paper...)

Did it work?

If so - any other questions?
If not, post a comment and tell me what happened.
