Hp Deskjet F4280 Wont Scan And Power Light Blinks

My hp deskjet f4280 wont scan and power light just blinks when scan button is pressed? I use a macbook with snow leopard and when i want to scan something the light on the power button just blinks quickly and then stops after about 15 seconds. Something used to pop up on the screen and it would begin scanning but it doesn't do that anymore. I reinstalled the driver and updates and still does not work. It used to work but don't remember if it worked since i updated from leopard to snow leopard. Inside the hp software it does not even recognize the scanner. Has this happened to anyone and how did you fix it?

Dell Dimension E310 Power Button Light Blinks

I had to manually reboot my computer last night, and it would not turn back on. The power button blinks a yellowish reddish light and nothing appears to be running. I took the main power supply from the back off, let it sit and then put it back in, however, the same thing occurred. The #'s 1, 2, 3, 4 both appear green and the little light that looks like a battery also flashes a yellowish red light. Any ideas what the problem might be? And how i may be able to fix it.

Scan Document On Hp Deskjet F4280

How to scan a document on an hp deskjet f4280?

Answer:- i'm not exactly sure whether you mean how do you physically place the document and what program to use or whether you're asking what software you need to use to do this but, you need to scan using ocr (optical character recognition) software. First of all, check the cd that came with your all-in-one printer to see if there's a program on there. If not, there are a couple of free ones available, though they're nowhere near as good as commercially available ones. These are softi freeocr and simpleocr. Alternatively, if you already have your scan, and it's in an image format, you might like to try gocr. This attempts to convert scanned images of text back to text files.

Hard Drive Light Blinks Every 2-3 Seconds

I was sitting across the room and noticed my hard drive light was blinking every 3 seconds. It's a stedy, every 3 seconds. It doesn't seem to be doing anything major, just lights up. Does it allways mean the drive is being accessed if the light blinks? Why would the drive be doing this?

I usally shut it off if i'm not going to use it, but started to leave it on. I am not usally sitting across the room not useing it, so i don't know if this just started or has been doing it for a long time.

Hp Deskjet F4280 Problem

I need help connecting my hp deskjet f4280. I have tried everything hp suggests. ? The printer is brand new out of the box. When i install the software my computer will not recognize the printer "no hp devices detected". I've tried just about every option in terms of when to connect the usb cable including installing the software completely then trying to add a new device. The hp website suggested steps like uninstalling the software, performing a disk-cleanup, turning off background programs, making sure specific drivers are working, and rebooting the printer and i've tried them all. On every occasion when i attach the usb cable a sound i've never heard plays. It's not he usual usb tone when you attach hardware, it's quick mono-tones. Not sure how to get around that.

Monitor Goes Black With The Power Light On

Here my prob i got a xerox 900p monitor so every time i start up my comp the monitor works fine but in about one hour or around that the screen just goes black but the power light is still on so i turn the power off and back on and only for about 5 secs it works and suddenly goes black again. So if i turn it off and wait it out for about another hour and turn it on again ot works for another hour until it goes black again. I have tried a different monitor it worked fine so i guess its something with this monitor for sure but what it can be i have no idea so if someone has a clue what this might be please tell me.

Toshiba A135 Power Supply Light Blinking

Toshiba a135 won't stay on (blinking power supply light). I have a toshiba a135. I always left the charger plugged in, which drained the battery (down to 7 min total battery life). It always worked fine when plugged in. When the original charger stopped working, i just bought one with the correct tip, b/c the box said it was compatible with toshiba. It was a kensington 80w charger. That charger has since stopped working. It made a continuous beeping noise when plugged in and its light would also stay off, but those were problems with the charger. B/c this charger stopped working and the battery was useless, i bought another charger, a toshiba one, with what the guy at the store said was the correct wattage (90w). Now with the new charger the laptop started fine. It would not stay on, however. It would turn on, and at some point soon after it would turn off. When it does turn off, the power supply light is blue and blinking (none of the other lights are on), and the computer is unable to turn on at this moment. The laptop will turn back on if the battery is taken out and put back in, which makes the power supply light blue and the battery light orange (how it is when it is uncharged). It will stay on for a short period, then shut off again. I have a few questions concerning this:

-Does using a power adapter with the wrong wattage have permanent effects on a laptop/its battery?

-What does the blinking power supply light mean? And why does it stop blinking after the battery is put back in again?

-How do i fix the problem of my laptop continually turning off?

No Power Up But Mobo Light On, Cpu Fan Spins Briefly

I have a fairly old d915pbl motherboard that i've been using for years. I was using it until i wanted to debug a graphics problem on a different system. I took the graphics card out of the 915 for about an hour. When i returned it the system wouldn't boot. I took out the graphics card and it still wouldn't boot. The onboard led lights up (green) and the cpu fan spins for about 1 second. The onboard light stays on, but the front pannel light never goes on. I was initially worried that the psu died, so i tried a different psu on the 915 motherboard and the results were the same. I still felt that i hadn't eliminated the original psu as the problem so i used the original psu on a different system and the other system powered up fine, so the psu is good. Then i got worried about the front pannel "sw power" connector so i took another system and set it up next to the 915. I plugged the two-pin "sw power" cable from the new system into the 915 and attempted to use the new system's power button. This didn't help either. I'm not entirely sure this test was valid, so i tried the "short the power pins" trick and pressed a screwdriver against the two "sw power" pins, no luck, no power on. I'd like to buy a little power switch to see if that makes a difference, but i'm doubtful. I'm not sure what to do now other than assume the system is fried and upgrade the mobo/proc. I'm also not sure about the cmos battery. This could be a problem, but i read that ususally the bios will post and then complain about the cmos battery. I don't know how true that is though. Any suggestions would be appreciated before i replace the system.

Hp Deskjet F4500 Scan Problem

My hp deskjet f4500 all-in-one series refuses to scan. It is a printer/scanner/copier all in one, but whenever i press the scan button it prints out some 'wireless network test report'. All i want it to do is scan my drawings - on paper, just normal a4 plain paper - onto the computer, but it's not doing anything, except for printing out that thing. I've put the picture in, face down like it says, but it's not even doing anything related to it, let alone scanning it. If it helps, it's wireless and brand new. Just got it out of the box and set up today but it's not working. Any clue why?
