HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One printer -- SCANNER not working.

I have had this HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One printer for a couple years and all is well. HOWEVER, the one function not working properly is SCANNING. I can print fine and copy fine. But when I go to scan something my power button flashes for about 10 seconds and then stops. Nothing happens, and nothing scans. HP said it was not the printer itself, but something to do with my operating system through Apple. I have the current 10.5.6 version of Leopard.
If I can get any help from others I'd appreciate it!

HP provided this link to software which resolved my scanning issue.

  • HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One printer will not work

    Printer worked one day and the next day it did not and now will not turn on.  I did not turn it off.  It went off all by itself.  Only 3 years old and not over used.  Have checked outlet and power cable.  Green LED light comes on when connected to outlet but as soon as I connect it to the printer, the light goes out and the printer will not turn on.  Is it dead?

    I have the exact same problem
    Where do we find a solution

  • HP deskjet 3055A e-All-in-One printer/scanner Not scanning

    Hello I have the all in one as listed.  It has worked for ages absolutely fine and the printer both wireless and network still works.  The scanner however does not the fact have done a Scan doctor on it.  Stops at Twain Scan problem.  Despite all the icons having been there from the past the message I get is "The HP Deskjet 305A J611 was not found". Tearing my hair out as uninstalled, loaded up drivers etc and still doesn't work.  Interestingly this only happened after I renewed my Norton susbscription and windows office also had issues.  Norton was uninstalled by their team and Windows office continued to malfunction regardless. This was sorted out by the Microsoft team successfully and Office and Norton are working fine again.  It seems too much of a coincidence but am guessing Twain is being blocked somehow by Norton.....Unfortunately am not much good at technology so any help appreciated

    Hi Russkiijim
    I understand you are unable to scan. The Print and Scan Doctor shows a Twain error. Twain is the interface standard for Windows and Macintosh that allows imaging hardware devices (such as scanners and digital cameras) to communicate with image processing software.
    Lets turn off all start up programs to make sure there isn't something blocking it. Click on start, in search box type in run, enter, then type in msconfig, click ok.
    Click the Services tab.
    Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
    Click Disable All, and then click OK.
    Then click on the start up tab at the top.
    Click on disable all.
    Reboot the computer.
    Turn off any antivirus software.
    Try scanning again.
    Then go back into msconfig and enable the All Microsoft Services and enable all on the start up tab. Turn the Antivirus software back on again.
    I would recommend to run Microsoft Fix It Tool to see if that will fix the twain error if the msconfig didn't work.
    You will probably need to uninstall and install the printer again.
    Let me know if that helps.

  • Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer Will not acquire IP Address

    I have happily had a Photosmart C6280 for some time now, however I recently replaced my router and my ISP Cable Modem (NetGear WNDR 3700 and Cisco 2100 respectively). At first everything was wonderful. Sadly, my NetGear router went bad and I had to return it. As it stands right now my printer will not take an IP address from the router. I have tried everything I can think of, several times and nothing has changed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software on the Windows 7 and XP machines that I'm  using. I have tried to manually set an IP address but on my printer when I'm done inputting all of the information there is no "enter" option.  Looking at the Connectivity Status page it states : Network Interface Adaptor Summary
    Name                                              Type                                                 Status                                
    Eth0                                                 Wired(802.3)                                 Disconnected

    Note:  Automatic or manual IP address assignment only occurs for an adaptor if it is currently connected.

    I have tried two different print servers and nothing. I am at the end of my rope and any help will be greatly appreciated.
                                                                                                                               Thank You

    On the front of the printer: Setup > Network > Reset Network Defaults.
    Now, set a static IP address for the printer:
    - Print a Network Config Page from the front of the printer. Note the printer's IP address.
    - Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.
    - Choose the Networking tab, then Wired along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.
    - On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). If you know what that is, set an IP outside that range but no higher than 254 (the last number in the address). If you do not know this, enter the current IP address.
    - Use for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)
    - Leave the gateway and DNS blank. Click 'Apply'
    Now, shut down the router and printer, start the router, wait, then start the printer.
    After this you may need to redo 'Add a Printer' using the new IP address.

  • HP Photosmart C6150 All-in-One Printer/Scanner - Blank, black photo edit window

    When I now scan a photo I wind up with a blank black screen in the window where I would normally be able to edit the photo.

    Hi functionless,
    Welcome to the HP forums!
    I'm sorry to hear you haven't been able to edit your photos on your Photosmart C6150 recently but I will absolutely do my best to lend a hand to help out
    Would I be safe to assume the printer's screen only goes completely black when trying to edit a photo? If you try anything else on the printer (say a copy, a test page, or navigating the Setup menu) do you get the same screen at any time?
    Is the printer plugged directly to a wall outlet? If not, please move it to one.
    Do you have to unplug the printer, or turn it off, to get it back to a regular screen?
    Did you notice any changes or anything prior to this happening?
    Once I hear back from you I will certainly offer some suggestions for you to try

  • HP Photosmart C4480 All in One Printer Scanner Copier

    I am scanning scrapbook pages with a white background. However, my scanner picks up reds and/or pinks and tints the white parts of the page, so I am not getting a true color. Is there a way to adjust?

    Hi JavaJoan,
    Let me please take a moment to say "Welcome" to the HP Forums. I see that this is your first visit with us.  I hope you enjoy your experience!
    To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.
    I see that you are having some issues with  lines on your copies. 
    This could possibly be a power issue. Please make sure you have the printer power cable connected to a wall outlet and not a power bar/strip.  Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for HP products in general.  Please click on the link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
    I also suggest that you try the document that deals with Vertical Bands, Lines, or Streaks in Copies or Scans.
    Please write me back if you are still having issues. If I don't hear back from you today, I hope you have a Fantastic Tuesday.

    Upgraded my 2 year old lap top to windows 10 and the HP scanner is unresponsive, printer works fine, reloaded installation CD, nothing, went to HP online and it sends you every where but any fix to this issue

    Hello Stringfield, and welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!
    I see you are experiencing scan issues.  I would like to help.
    I would suggest performing a power reset on the printer.  Disconnect the power cord from the printer and the power outlet, then wait 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, plug the printer back in. Ensure you plug the printer directly to a wall outlet. Make sure to bypass any sort of surge protector or power bar.
    I would then recommend downloading and running the HP Print and Scan Doctor.
    Please let me know the results.  Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

    Where are you seeing that the "administrator needs to be correct"?
