if you have a mac, you probably have upgraded to leopard 10.5. the driver and software set is not compatible, you must go the hp site in the drivers section and get the new package that is compatible with 10.5
this should clear it up

First..check through the HP icon here, to see if that printer has a IMAC driver

that might get you there...I'm sure that the USB ports on your IMAC are working..

you can check them with some other device, of course.

I can't scan anything on my HP PHOTOSMART C4345 All-In-One


Try this: Power down the computer and printer, connect the usb to a different usb port. Reboot. The Mac should register the changed location.
The older apples used to be very sensitive to port selection and peripherials serviced. Perhaps they still are.

I am installing a new printer on a IMAC, but it won't install completely. The printer is a HP Photosmart C4200 All-in-one series.It will copy, print, but will not scan.


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
