Hardware :: How To Scan HP Photosmart C4500?

Oct 18, 2009

I have 13" MacBookPro running 10.6.1 with 4 G Ram. My HP Photosmart C4500 All-In-One will print but will not scan. I have unplugged the USB cable and uninstalled and reinstalled the driver to no avail. I have tried to scan from both the unit itself and the scan software on my laptop. I get messages like "an unknown error occurred, or "can't find scanner". When you look in the 4500s window it appears to be scanning but nothing happens. Any ideas? It seems to have stumped HP help so far!

Jun 30, 2014

Since I upgraded to Maverick the Scan Print in System Preferences freezes when I try to open it. I repaced my old Canon printer, because there was not a driver update available for it. My new printer is a HP Photosmart 7520. I downloaded the newest driver and software for it , but when I try to open HP Utilities it also freezes.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hp Photosmart Is Not Scanning?

Mar 6, 2012

I had not scanned with my HP Photosmart since I bought a new iMac. The printer prints just fine.  HP is no help saying that a software update comes with Lion. Obviously it does not work since my HP utility just puts up a complex error message consisting of a lot of computer code.

MacBook :: Running Hot With HP Photosmart Apps

Feb 27, 2009

my White (early 2008) MacBook 4.1 is struggling to run HP Photosmart Studio, an app that was bundled with the HP C4280 which came with my MacBook. (spec = 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 17GB remaining on the hard disc). With the app open and not being used for anything I am getting the following temperature readings:

CPU Core A: 71 (degrees C)

CPU Core B: 71

Main Heatsink 1: 58

Main Heatsink 2: 58

Enclosure Bottomside: 26

The cooling fans are running noisy (5500 rpm).

My house temperature is cool (think winter in the UK).

When I try to edit a scanned image (even a credit card sized image scanned as a JPEG at 200 dpi) the software often freezes for at least half an hour before I have to Force Quit.

I haven't had the MacBook misbehave before when running iMovie, iDVD and other intensive apps. I have downloaded the latest version of Photosmart from HP's website and the problem remains.

Also, I have a 1.66 GHz Core Duo, 2GB RAM Mac Mini that doesn't seem to have the same problem, although I haven't pushed it as hard I have the MacBook.

Hardware :: Unable To Use HP Photosmart C4480?

Aug 24, 2009

I haven't been able to get my Macbook to print to my HP Photosmart C4480. The printer is usually hooked up to another computer, although this hasn't been a problem in the past.

(I haven't had any problems with it in the past.)

I've tried to print from several different programs, including a test page, but I keep encountering basically the same problem.:

It slowly prints the first centimeter or so of the page, and then stops. Once, it printed the first two lines of text, but kept re-printing the second line (on the same page.)

The image and the test page I tried to print had the same problem, except they didn't repeat any lines.

Does anyone know what my problem might be?

OS X V10.4 :: Scanning On HP Photosmart C4780 Using 10.4.11 (Tiger)?

Jun 6, 2012

I am running 10.4.11 (Tiger) on a MacBook.  I started up my HP Photosmart all-in-one (printer/copier/scanner) c4780 today, and it does everything except the one thing I want it to do: SCAN.  The software had been installed previously using the provided installation CD when I used it several months ago (it's been turned off since), and each part (including the scanner) worked perfectly.  I am still using a USB cable, as I do not have access to the Wireless Network Key.  The System Profile recognizes the device through the USB port, and I am able to print from any program on my computer as well as use the copy function on the machine itself. 

So far, in no particular order (and likely multiple times), to troubleshoot, I've repaired disk permissions, uninstalled the software, reinstalled from the CD, reinstalled from the website, rebooted my computer, turned off/on the printer, disconnected/reconnected the USB cable, Googled about every combination of words I could think of for troubleshooting this issue, and tried every other program suggested by HP's website to access the scanner (Import on Preview and Image Capture, both of which tell me that there is no image capture device connected/found).  When I try to access the scanner function through the HP Photosmart Studio software, it searches for a scanner but never turns up any results (in that it never reaches a conclusion).  When I use the scan button on the physical printer, either nothing happens or I get an error message telling me there is a connection issue; regardless of the message, the lamp does not move (like it does when it copies). 

To my recollection, the only software updates I've installed in the interim have been pre-mandated ones from Apple: three Java Script updates I'd been putting off for installing for almost two years.  I recently downloaded and ran MacScan, purging my system of tracking applications in an attempt to coach another program that just started having problems to run.  On the touch screen printer menu itself, there do not appear to be any setup options, so I can't tweak anything on the printer's end.  At this point, I'm not sure if the fault lies with my computer or the printer.

Hardware :: Can't Get An HP Photosmart 4700 To Print From MS Office X?

Oct 16, 2010

I just bought an HP Photosmart 4700 series. For a while it was printing fine, then after shutting down the computer, it suddenly stopped printing from anything Office X software.

It responds on the print command, and then sends out a blank sheet of paper.

That said, it prints everything else - gmail or web pages -- just fine.

My Mac OS is version 10.6.3. My guess is I need to update Office to be compatible with the latest Mac OS. Of course that doesn't explain why it was working before.

I'd rather hear from someone more knowledgeable than I am.

Hardware :: Hp Photosmart EStation C510a Questions?

Oct 29, 2010

1.) Does anyone have this printer and if so what do you think of it?

2.) It does say it is compatible with mac osx 10.6 so that is good. But also it says it requires internet explorer, which I want no part of haha.

I plan on getting it for my girlfriend for her birthday coming up because she is a heavy printer user due to school. She loved that it had a 7 inch detachable tablet. (I hate it because its android but hey its for the lady)

Any help is appreciated.

Hardware :: HP Photosmart B209 SL & Airport Extreme

Jan 7, 2010

It goes through the whole install then no printer. If i install it with the downloaded drivers from hp, from the prompt from apple when the printer is plugged in, or from the cd that came with the printer (which only list v10.5 anyways) I spent two hours on the phone with hp and they said I need to clean up my computer, what? Not the problem. if I go to system pref and then print and fax, it says no printer selected, if I push add, it shows the printer connected to the usb and I add it, it goes through finding software, locates it and downloads it and says "successful", I click ok and then once again no printers are selected. If I go through the hp setup everything is fine till I get to the wireless part. It shows my network (with full signal strength) and then it says the network is not in range "retry" If I try to skip the wireless part it says it installs fine and I'm ready to go but once again no printers are listed. I google searched and read on a hp forum other people have had this same problem when using snow leopard and an airport extreme with this printer and they said to go to airport utility and under base station select "add wireless client". I do not have or can not find that option. Help?

Hardware :: Unable To Use HP Photosmart C4480 Scanner?

Apr 28, 2010

I got this printer/scanner when I got the Macbook not too long ago and I am finally getting around to setting it up on the new iMac.
It worked perfectly fine on my old G5 iMac running Tiger but for some reason I can't get it to work right on the new Snow Leo. iMac.

I open the HP Device Manager and go to "scan picture". It opens up HP Scan Pro and the scanner starts going but then I get a message on the screen that says:



Sorry an unknown error has occured

I fiddled around with some of the preferences and it's saying that it can not communicate with the scanner (which is wrong because it tells it to start scanning and it prints fine).

All updates have been done to both the computer and the scanner software.

Has anyone else had this kind of problem with ANY of the HP peripherals? Need some help with this guys/gals.

MacBook Pro :: Hp Photosmart D110 Installer Not Supported

Feb 19, 2012

I'm trying to reinstall my HP Photosmart D110 printer for like the 11th time this week. I bought the printer about 1.5 years ago, with my Macbook Pro. Everything worked fine at first -- through my last year of college, several moves, etc. Now, when I try to use my printer (wirelessly or hard-wired) it simply won't work. I've gone through uninstalling and reinstalling the HP software, with the installation CD and the downloaded installation software from hp.com/support --they're one in the same.  

My Mac won't recognize the printer and at the end of the installation wizard, I get a message saying "If your device is not listed, it is not supported by this installer." I've called Applecare. The rep was very helpful, but unable to resolve my issue. I've called HP Tech Support, which was a less than pleasing customer service experience. They're not open 24-7 as they advertise and when I finally did get a rep, he was troubleshooting for a PC when I specifically noted that I have a Mac. Naturally, I was told I needed to be transferred to a different department, where no one answered the phone (even during "normal business hours.")

my current HW configuration is the following:iMac Intel 21" Lion (latest update)modem router Asus DSL-N10HP Photosmart 5510 all-in-one..My problem is that my Mac can not 'see' the Photosmart in wifi mode and hence can not configure it as default printing and scanning device.The iMac can 'see' the router and so does the printer.What's more, I can open the HP configuration panel by typing its IP address in Safari (and this in wifi mode).Needless to say, both OSX and the HP drivers are at thier latest update.

OS X Mavericks :: HP Psc 2510xi Photosmart Drivers That Work With 10.9.4

Sep 5, 2014

I had a new hard drive installed on my iMac with OSX 10.9.4. It then would not print to either the HP psc 2510xi Photosmart (USB cable) or the networked HP Officejet 7000, both of which had worked with 10.9.2. I downloaded new drivers from HP and Apple: HP Printer Drivers v.2.26.1 for OSX. When I try to Add a printer I get the message: Can't install software because it is not currently available from the Software Update server. HP support labeled my Photosmart obsolete and sold me an Officejet Pro 8100. Same problem even though it came with a CD with printer drivers. Same messages.
