Use the disc that came with the printer and uninstall the Imaging Device and then reinstall it again. It should work.
When you click on uninstall you will be given two options: To uninstall everything or choose software to uinstall.
Choose the second one, that way you won't have to uninstall everything.
If you've have finished doing so. Try scanning again, there;s a big chance it would work now.

HP software can often give you a headache. When you said you deleted the printer did you simply delete it from the control panel where all of your installed devices are listed? If that is the case you need to use HP's Uninstall program to completely remove all HP software for this device before attempting to reinstall the software. If the HP software is no longer listed under your "Start - Programs" menu you can use the Control Panel, go to "Programs - Uninstall a program" find the HP software and remove it. Once that is done you can use your friends CD if it is Vista compatible or download the driver at this link:

Trying to scan from a hp 4850 with hp photosmart essential 3.5. Tried reinstalling software with no change.


Are you able to scan with any other software? Try microsoft paint.

hold down the windows key and press r, type mspaint and click OK

In paint, click file and select from scanner or camera, try scanning does it work?

If it works, there is something wrong with your photosmart, I would suggest you completely uninstall all hp related software and programs from start .> control panel -> add or remove programs / programs and features / uninstall programs.

Find all hp related software, uninstall, unplug printer, restart computer when all software is removed. if the computer restarts before all programs are uninstalled, then continue after restart until all programs are removed.

(After) restart and use your cd and reinstall, plug in when asked.

let me know if you require further assistance.

My printer stays on and will not be recognized by my computer ... even when i unplug it to try and reset it the power stay's on .... not sure what the problem is but only used the printer twice so any help...

Hi, this is probably a USB issue. Here is what i would do. Uninstall printers drivers. Unplug the USB cables. Download the latest drivers from HP. Then install the new drivers and wait untill the software tells you to plug your usb cable. Your printer may stay in sleep mode while it's not prining, it may be completely normal. But if you have serious doubts, you could call the HP thech support.

HP F4180 Printer printing small

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.
