Question about HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP F4180 Printer printing small

I have an HP 4180 printer connected to my Mac using operating system 10.4.11. Up until a few days ago it was printing fine & suddenly today it started printing everything from several different applications as if I shrunk it down 60%. I spoke with the HP people & they said it's not a driver issue, the test page prints out fine, I uninstalled & reinstalled the the software. If anyone might have a clue on what's wrong that would be great.

Hi Lady Luxe,

Try running the Manual Uninstall solution (click link below):

Then run the HP Installer from your disk (v. 8.0). You may want to also restart your Mac after installation is successful (make sure you complete the Setup Assistant - don't skip it!).

Try to scan from the glass scanner bed to see that your connection is solid. Try to print now and it should be fine.

HP F4180 will not scan!

HP does not support Vista operating system, no software or drivers for it are offered at all. If Vista, you also cannot use either the scan button on the "All-in-One" or the usual method of HP Solution Center. HP has discontinued the F4180 and supports it only minimally.
You can scan via Windows Photo Gallery, or though Paint, or through Windows Fax and Scan. File - Import from camera or scan, or File - scan, are paths.

I have loved this printer/scanner but plan myself to avoid anything HP makes in the future because of this "support".

The margins of Section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page?

Select "Crop to Page" before printing. Or just print as-is. Most cases it will look okay on your printout.

Reddish tint on all pictires printed on my 4180. Same pictures prin perfectly on hp 7260.

You are experiencing a printer cartridge problem. Sounds like some of the colors in the print cartidge have run out, either that or the nozzles are clogged. Run a nozzle check from the printer software, if it does not fix, try a new color cartridge.

Let me know how it works out for you.
