Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet

1 Answer

I'm trying to scan a hand drawn comic and it only scans one panel. I've had this trouble with art before. It will only scan part of a drawing. It's getting ridiculous.

Hello Hera,

I'd recommend for you to download their scan diagnostic utility on this link. it would help most of the software issues you may have.

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support_task.html

to make sure its not the printer in itself having issues, please try to do a photocopy of any colored picture you may have.

If there is any issue, then you will need to do a hard reset on it by pressing the power button for 30 seconds.

if there is none after the copy, then try to reinstall the driver via the CD or by hp.com and see support and drivers.

If this fails, then it must be serviced.

Please feel free to leave a testimonial if this works and please do not forget to click 4 thumbs.

Cheers!

Hi ,
Please check if other downloads from the net come in smoothly .
If you have a problem there , download and install MalwareBytes from http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
and let it make a deep scan of your entire system .
This could help .

Resolution of scanned images are pixled and horrible.


Have you tried using the "Dell All-In-One Center" that should have come on a disc with the printer/driver? Try searching for "Dell All-In-One Center" near/in the start button search. This will give you options for setting the DPI on the scan.

I work with hand drawn illustrations that I scan as bitmaps and would like to change theminto vector based illustrations to colour them in using either illustrator or photoshop. Open paths are a problem...


You can either close the vectors, completing the autotrace (I assume you are autotracing) or you can draw shapes into the spaces and color the shapes. This is akin to color overlays, then send the overlays behind the line art.

It depends on the complexity of the artwork. You may need to touch up your illustrations so your shapes are complete in the drawing, that would probably be the most time-effective way to solve this problem. Fixing the vectors or tracing in the color overlays (underlays if you will) can be time consuming.

When we scan a drawing, we get a green background.


Try scanning with different software, such as MSOffice Photo Editor. It could be the scanner TWAIN settings or the app that you are scanning with.

Bad contrast with scanner


Last things first: NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

That's the way HP does things. There are no rheostats or pots to adjust. It's all done electronically now, with chips and things.

You never said how it does with color or greyscale photos or drawings.

As for the RGB=(64,64,64), that's about right for the scan picture settings and the mixed (text and graphics) setting, and is particularly true for color picture settings. Have you tried using the setting for drawings (or line art), specifically greyscale drawings? Usually the greyscale lineart or drawing setting will render black text. You might also try scanning with the settings set for Text. If the greyscale drawing settings or greyscale text settings do not produce black text, try reinstalling your software and drivers.

If the contrast stays the same for all settings after reinstalling the software and drivers, and if it doesn't scan color and greyscale pictures correctly, then it sounds like your scanner is going bad.

As for the scans you've already done, you can darken the text by taking it into a photo editor, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop, and adjust the contrast and brightness to get the effect you desire.

Scanning documents


That is the front panel options you get to see in the All-In-One screen,
That states that you can scan and save it to these options
Outlook is to scan and send as email
Microsoft word is installed by default with Microsoft office Try scanning you will see a word window popping-up as soon as it has completed scanning
HP Photo View Center is a HP Software application where you can edit the scanned image and do some creative arts for pictures.
I.R.I.S.read iris is to scan and edit documents (you can try scanning a document to this.
If in addition if you had Adobe installed you would get another option as to scan to PDF

Good Luck
