You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

What is the process to save a document or picture scanned with my HP Deskjet F4280? I am using Microsoft Windows 7. I am unable to install any HP software for this printer/scanner while using Windows 7.


There is no need to install any software for scanning from Windows 7 computer.

It's very easy

On computer click "Start" (windows icon)
click "All Programs"
click "Windows Fax and Scan"
click "Scan" and complete the scan as per on-screen instructions there


Make sure printer is turned on and connected to computer through usb cable properly.

HP Deskjet F4280 all-in-one - when I preview a scan in "scanners and cameras" it previews fine but when I press the button to scan, the on/off light just blinks rapidly at me and nothing happens.


If you have installed your printer correctly, is your Page aligned, if not try page alignment by loading A4 paper into the tray and adjust the tray to fit with your paper, then restart your printer.

Note that you do not need the photo smart essential to perform your scanning, all you need is to press the scan button and the scanning page automatically open on your PC

My HP F4280 Deskjet All-In-One does not scan!


Under Control Panel, click System, than click hardware, than click device manager.

Uninstall USB Controllers, and than unplug the USB cord from back of the PC.

Once the USB controllers have been uninstalled, restart your PC.

Once the PC has been restarted, put the USB Cable back into the PC, and let the Operating system reinstall the drivers.

This should reinstall all drivers such as twain, usb, etc..

Sanning Documents and saving them


In your save dialog, you need to expand the folder tree by clicking on it. Then you will see 'My Documents' and further down your C: drive if you want to save to a folder not in 'My Documents'. It's right in front of you, you just need to know to click on it.

I want to scan and email a document from my new HP DESKJET F4280 printer. I can scan it, and then I try to share it, but when I hit the send button it says there is no internet connection. Am I right in...


When you scan a document it must be scanned with OCR software. The default scanning method will scan a document as a picture, not a document with letters and words. The OCR software will recognize the letters and put the scanned document in the proper format to open it with MS Word. The software that you scan with should have a setting for OCR, read your instructions or help files to get the details if you can not find them very easy in the software you use for scanning. .

The problem with using Outlook may be that you have not set it up properly to get your emails from your email server. You do not need to use Outlook or Outlook express to send any documents, you can use your web based email server if you like, but you can use Outlook Express as well. You just need to add the document to send as an attachment to the email.

To set up Outlook Express to get your email, you must first find out what the POP3 and SMTP setting you must use. You can get that information from your email provider, it is different for every email provider. Then you go to the "File" menu at the top left of Outlook Express and select "Identities" and select "Add New Identity" and from there you will go thru a wizard to guide you thru the process of setting up your email client. Just make sure you have the POP3 and SMTP settings available for you to put into Outlook Express when prompted to in the wizard.
