You have to service the scaner craddle if U want to, or replace it with a new part.
The noise is because the scaner cannot align. Under the front panel - under the glass is a white strip that should be read by the scaner in order to calibrate (find the right limit).
If there is some dust on the craddle mirrors or if the CCD sensor is fault, then the craddle wants to go beyond the right limit of the chasis - then the noise apears.
The mirrors and the lens should be cleaned, then if this noise is still there, you should replace the craddle.

In Romania there is no service part available for this printer, there is only the Unit Exchange solution. Very expensive.

Lillouie - If U have reinstalled the AIO with a new driver, you should have a list of scaners that you can select. 2 mabye.
Try from a Word doc to insert picture from scaner/camera and U'll see that there are more than one scaner in that scrolling list.

If this isn't so. Uninstall the hole printing solution from HP, then install it from clean..

Best regards, Sebi

If will need to install the software that came with the printer. If you already did that, you can start HP directory by clicking the HP icon on the right hand side of the task bar. Then click "Scan document" or "Scan Picture" depending on what you need to scan. If you select "save to disk" option, the program will ask you where to save the file.

HP Photosmart C4180 scanner

Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

C4180 Scan Work Around

They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

Thanks for using Fixya.

Won't scan. Copies and prints. But the scan button does nothing.

Did you try scanning from your pc? I never use the printer scan button. Most scan buttons won't work without the "print center" program open as the scan always goes to the pc. I mostly use the windows scan program in the control panel. Try this.

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.

If you go to
Do a search on your printer.
Look for an option for drivers and downloads.
Select your printer and windows vista.
You need to find the print, scan, fax drivers. Not just the printer drivers.
The driver download would be like 800 MegaBytes instead of like 2 or 3 MegaBytes.
