Hi vinhquocdao,

If your HP 4200 printer won't scan using MAC OS X 10.6.6, it might cause by software issue. There are several ways on how to correct this problem, just uninstall and reinstall the printer driver and run an apple software update. Here are additional steps that you can apply to solve this issue.

1. Unplug the printer from your system.

2. Now, go to application [Hewlett Packard] then click on [HP uninstaller] then continue.

3. On the left pane, please highlight your device.

4. Hold the [CTRL], [OPT] and [CMD] keys and click uninstall.

5. There will be a pop up that will asks if you are sure you want to uninstall all HP software. Click on continue and let it finish.

6. Now, run a software update.

7. Remove and reinstall the printer in system preferences, Print and Fax.

8. Restart the computer then connect the printer to your system
--> please try to run a self test and observe the printer. Also try to Scan from Preview or Image Capture apps.

Hope it helps.

I had the same problem, found out that you should not install the disk that came with the printer. If you do it won't scan. The drivers are already in Mac OSX. You have to uninstall whatever you installed...throw the disk away. To scan go to System Preferences, click printer, then scanner button and it works. Hope this helps!

HP Scanjet 4470c compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.1


You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.

Scanner says sorry an unknown error occured The scanner seems to reconize it is connected to the computer, but it will not complete the scan


You don´t give enough information in order to allow us to help you (How are you trying to scan? What exactly happens? What OS is installed in your computer? Which software/driver did you install? Does your printer otherwise works?)

Start by reading these HP FAQs to see if you can solve the problem (2 are meant for Vista systems and one for XP). Post again if you still can't scan.

Can't start up Konica Minolta Elite 5400 II


This problem usually occurs when the scanner software crashes, or the scanner is turned off in operation, or the computer is shut down before you quit the software, etc.  
The K-M driver software gets corrupted.
I use mine with a Mac G3 Tower and OS-X v 10.4.9.  What I do is search for all the Konica-Minolta components using OS-X spotlight and then delete them.  After reinstalling the K-M driver software and restarting the mac, the scanner should work fine.
