Install software that is twain compliant.
Maybe the HP bundle that came with the printer.
Also Paint Shop Pro,Adobe Acrobat.Photoshop etc.
Use the usb cable after the install of the HP drivers then you may change the default location of where scans are saved.

Unplug the USB cable to the printer. Uninstall the HP printer software. Reboot. Reinstall the HP printer software and WAIT until the installation program tells you to plug in the USB cable.

I had the same problem.  The thing is I was pressing the scan button on the printer and getting the lovely "USB not connected" message.  However, if you open the printer icon in the dock (Mine is "HP Photosmart C4200 series") and click the Scanner button in the upper right hand corner, then click "New Scan," voila!  presto! and all is right with the world again.  
Yes, it is obnoxious that HP made a defective scanner button, and I may download the driver again when I get a chance.  But yay for quick fixes!

You are listed in the wrong section of Fixya. This section is for Car and Truck Experts. Relist in a section which more closely matches your product.

I can tell you that using the makers Website can lead to finding the Owners Manuals online or result in finding a Phone# for help.

I hope my info is useful.

lost cd for installation for HP Photosmart C4280

HP Photosmart... | Answered on Dec 15, 2012 | 2,100 views


I resolved this by going to "tools" -> "Clean Print Head".

1. Make sure that you removed the tape covering the metal contacts on the print cartridges.

2. Clean those contacts with a cotton swab and distilled, filtered or bottled water. Tap water may damage. Do not touch with curious fingers. Allow to dry.

3. Reinsert, Reset printer.

Not directly. The C4280 doesn't connect to a phone. You can scan a document on it, then fax it from the computer if the computer is connected to the phone system.

I have had the same problem. When I was trying to fix it, noticed that my color cartridge was almost empty. I understood the alignment page was not prepared well. After changing cartridge, I prepared a new alignment page, then tried it and it worked

hmmmm...assuming that the cartridge is installed properly, yes? seems that your black ink cartridge may need to go through a 'clean' process, prior to alignment(sure wish that the replacement folks would insist on cleaning out the old heads, before doing an alignment. It's like changing the oil on your car, but using the old filter. Same gunk still in the system.
