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.

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?

Hp Deskjet F4280 Streaking

Its got lots of white streaks, color works fine though. Tried lots of advice, banged the black cartridge down on a wet sheet of paper, this opened it up (formerly it wouldn't print black at all)

I heard i had to "reset manually" to get the streaking to stop, but no information on how thats done (i tried unplugging it for 30 seconds)

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.

Hp Deskjet F4480 Won't Scan

My hp deskjet f4480 wont let me scan. I set it up right. Answer:-
Hp has this problem perpetually. Do not use the scan button on the scanner. Instead use the hp solution center on your desktop and scan from there. I am sure your scanner will work perfectly. Hp's all-in-one have this perpetual problem in all their models. Single button scan is for decor purposes only.
