Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

The HP Photosmart C3180 functions well if it works independently (not connected to the PC). Although the device is good connected to the PC and the USB cable is a good one, still the Computer can't alocate the device nor work with it. However, this problem took place after a power supply problem. In my opinion, the problem is with the USB port inside the device !!! Thanks Hossam Aboumarak

SOURCE: how do i connect my photosmart c3180 to mt

Start by making sure that the printer is indeed compatible with your computers operating system. Once confirmed, place the CD ROM (that contains the driver and software) that came with the printer into the rom tray. If it doesnt auto start you can go to my computer and double click the icon where the software is located. Allow the drivers and software to install...should be pretty simple. You will then either use a firewire or USB cord to connect it to your computer depending on which one your printer calls for. Once connected try printing a test page. Through this process you may be asked to restart your computer in order for it to take effect. Hope this helps

Hp c3180 with windows 7 64 bit won't work

When I bought my Windows 7 64bit, my c3180 did everything but scan. I downloaded the drivers 5 times with no avail. I stumbled onto how to do it by accident. Go to control panel, click on devices and printers, click ONCE on HP photosmart 3100 series and look at top of window. It will have several choices, one of which is 'start scanning'. Hope this helps.

Scan function not working

I have had issues with HP scanners myself. The way I deal with this is to use the scanner and camera wizard in XP, it recognizes the device and scans even over the network. Works every time for me.

If you need more help let me know I CAN solve this problem, let me know.
