Scanning problem on photosmart c4280

Everything you said is helpful, but I think I missed something.  You said not to use the installer because it is the same as the disk.  So, what do I do?

For a quick fix that doesn't involve downloading or installing anything, open the printer icon in the dock ("HP Photosmart C4200 series") and click the Scanner button in the upper right hand corner, then click "New Scan."  It should scan with no problems!  At least it did for me. : )

My HP Photosmart C4280 doesn't give correct colours when scanning


You can usually calibrate your printer. When you first get your printer you may have to run through tests. One of them is where you print out a sheet with multiple colours on it and you then scan it to calibrate the scanner.Scanning will rarely give a perfect representation of the actual photo or image but if you do calibrate it may solve your problems.

HP Printer C4280 says "USB not connected"


Install software that is twain compliant.
Maybe the HP bundle that came with the printer.
Also Paint Shop Pro,Adobe Acrobat.Photoshop etc.
Use the usb cable after the install of the HP drivers then you may change the default location of where scans are saved.

This printer is saying that print cartridges missing, they are both brand new. HP Photosmart C4280 all in one. what to do.


Be sure to run the print test page after installing cartridges.  After doing so, place the page face down on the scanner and select cartridge alignment.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


hi
i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
over and over again

and then it hit me !!!

why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

cheers

Fatal error message


Hi all,

The error happens if your installation did not finish completely and you didnt have complete access and permission to the system(even though you are an administrator). Run the access denied tool by hp by clicking on the link http://tinyurl.com/5u2pg three times. uninstall the software and reinstall again. If this dosent work you will have to manually change the permissions in the registery.

hope this helps!
cheers
