Hi

Please check whether all the cables are firmly connected. If the cables seems to be fine then unplug all the cables including the power. Unplug the USB cable from the printer and power it on.

Now re-install the printer software/driver and let it advise you when to connect the USB cable. When it does, connect it and let it complete installation. Now you would need to reboot the windows and it should now be able to find your new hardware. Now try and scan a picture/page using photoshop or any other software.
Your problem would be resolved now. If it doesn't get resolved then please post back with the error message you are getting on the computer screen or on the printer. Also, post back the make and model number of your 4in1 printer. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. If your printer is connected via the USB cable, disconnect it from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and re-plug your printer from the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it your computer. Try to scan again.
If the printer is wirelessly connected to the computer, check the status of the WiFi light. Green light means your printer is connected to your network. Orange means otherwise.

When trying to scan a photo from the c7280 to the computer the printer displays the following error message No Scan Options : refer to documentation and troubleshoot. This is not covered in my printer...


That's because it's not a printer problem. The scan options are in your computer in the scanning software for your machine. Before you can scan you need to be connected to your computer with scan software running to tell it how to scan, what you're scanning, and where to send and save the image you scan.

Have you printer connected by usb cable or in a network(scanning doesn't work on a wireless)?
If on a network, use web browser and through EWS on printer see for network tab and SNMP enable read/write, print public in the 4 fields choose apply. Download fix scan utility from HP web and install. Restart the pc and set up the scan in toolbox and try scan again.
