    When scanning to memory device, I continue to get Save Failure, General Error Message. This all-in-one is only two months old with maybe a dozen scans made before getting this message. Tried power cycling, no help.

    Any suggestions?

Error 8,[ (4,0 -2147023170) ]

Cabgal .... what are you talking about? What you said makes no sense.

Explain yourself better or don't post!

The error is due to lack of memory needed to save/process the scanned pages. If you are scanning a full size book ... try limiting your scan to no more than 100 pages. Before you attempt to scan again ... power cycle the HP printer/scanner. Then run %temp% and purge all of the files listed.

We have an HP L7780 and have problems rec. faxes - error 232

Hate to say it, but it means "Don't buy HP printers". You'll be a whole lot happier with Canon or Epson. I had no end of trouble with more than HP all-in-one. They just get flaky after awhile, and the software (particularly scanning) is terrible.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One keeps giving me the error message - Scanner failure - Turn power off then on. Turning power off then on, even disconnecting power cord, repeatedly does not solve problem.

Our HP Officejet L7780 displays the "Align Printer" message and then does it automatically wasting several sheets of paper aligning, then the next time we print a page the same message comes back. Is there a way to turn off the "align Printer" message. It is printing ok otherwise.
