I installed a new ink cartridge and when it asks for the page to be scanned, it says that the USB is not connected. It is connected, I have even tried a different cable.

The USB not connected error shows up on the photosmart printers when the software is either not installed or is incompatible with your OS. Click on the link below and download and install the software for your OS. You may have to turn printer off and then on and restart your computer to refresh if it doesn't do so automatically.

SOURCE: Trying to scan, but keeps on saying "USB not connected"

I had the same problem.  The thing is I was pressing the scan button on the printer and getting the lovely "USB not connected" message.  However, if you open the printer icon in the dock (Mine is "HP Photosmart C4200 series") and click the Scanner button in the upper right hand corner, then click "New Scan," voila!  presto! and all is right with the world again.  
Yes, it is obnoxious that HP made a defective scanner button, and I may download the driver again when I get a chance.  But yay for quick fixes!

You need to uninstall your printer, then reinstall the newer version of software (can be gotten at the HP site). I just did it and now my scanner works.

Trying to scan a document with an HP C4280 says USB cable not connected but it is


USB cable may be bad, try a new one and see if it helps.

These cables are normaly universal, check and see if you may have one from an old printer just laying around before buying a new one.

Hope this helps@

Try reinstalling the driver. Make sure you have the newest driver from www.hp.com/support - search your C4280

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.

Printer and copier work fine- scanner says USB not connected.


I had this same problem and it is fixable, but not the way you would probably like, though you can still scan with the printer. You just have to open the Paint program and click from scanner or camera, and then choose your printer and click scan preview, and then scan, it works just fine but its a little time consuming.
