It just does not print or scan.
ilgemino
For those on Windows XP and Vista, if you still encountered scanning problem, e.g. USB not connected, etc.
Pay It Forward
After 3 days of use the ink cartridges for black and color were empty and I did not do that much printing.

I figured the price of this was a little too good to be true and having only had it for a couple of weeks I'm beginning to think I was right. Bought it as a temporary printer for a homeoffice to be replaced somewhere in the nearish future - alas I'm already looking to replace it. Currently trying to run the scanner to see how good it is and alas I'm getting a "USB Not Connected" error even though it is connected as I can print. In draft mode it prints the pages very quickly which is to be expected but then proceeds to eject them at too high a velocity so they're all over the floor...couldn't HP incorporate a brake on the spooling when ejecting the page. Have a bad feeling about this printer, going by the other cautionary reviews here you might be better placed to spend a few more dollars and go with something a little more substantial/trustworthy. I won't be buying another one that's for sure.

After a couple of weeks use I am beginning to dislike this printer with a vengence - HP are obviously focusing on how to reach the market to sell cartridges without focusing on the quality of the printer using them - HP used to deliver a quality printer - now I would have to question their business ethics....this printer device is junk. 0 Stars.

OK...after another week of use the printer when the printer goes in to idle mode it is no longer being detected by the pc. This requires a turning off/on of the printer to have it recognised as a new device on the USB. There is too much tomfoolery with this thing - I'm now looking for a full refund from HP, I'll buy something more expensive but hopefully not sure a bear to use. Interesting how amazon won't allow you to change your initial star rating.

The C4280 has been in my home office for ten months now. I've got the software loaded on three laptops ranging in age from 4 years to six months old; all of which are running Windows XP. We've been using it for work, personal and school projects without any problems.

The scanner has a couple of modes. The document mode had a couple of surprises. When scanning a document from the newspaper, the document mode added typos that were not on the original. It also changed hand printed notes in the margin into a typeface. Now I just scan documents with the photographic mode to keep them looking like the originals. In photographic mode, the scanner software offers some ability to edit and manipulate the image.

Only in the past month have we started buying HP photographic paper and using the C4280 to print pictures from the digital camera. I'm amazed at the results produced by this ink jet printer! I had retouched some old photos of my parents and had them printed as 8x10's at a local camera store with a good reputation. The C4280 with photo paper produced prints that looked every bit as good as the expensive camera store versions.

The printer takes two ink cartridges - one color and one black. Refill ink cartridges are available in "regular" and "XL" sizes. The cartridge modes (74 and 75) are readily available. I've seen the refills here on Amazon, Office Max, Staples, BrandSmart, and Costco - so, they're not hard to come by.

The C4280 has been an excellent personal printer (copier, scanner) for me. Frankly, I'm shocked by all the bad reviews on this board, but I am not trying to run it with Mac, Vista OS, or making it the primary printer for a busy office.

I just bought this printer after using a lexmark and having nothing but problems since I upgraded to Vista. This works wonderfully. You can print, scan, copy by just using the buttons on the printer. You can even insert your memory card from your digital camera into a slot and print right from there. I have had no problems whatsoever with this printer. Just be sure to read what version of Windows it supports as I do not think it supports Windows 2000.

In use with Mac OS 10.4, this all-in-one is a nightmare in the small office. It jams on about half of its attempts to feed paper, and has no good access to the interior for clearing paper jams. Removing the back panel reveals cheap, brittle plastic involved in the moving parts of the unit.

Scanner often produces skewed, cut-off images even with automatic straightening turned off - and the software (HP Scan Pro) regularly crashes while in use.

This printer is inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. In this case, you'd be better off spending the money on a toaster - it would perform almost as well in the all-in-one print/scan/copy market.

Verified Purchase
I was looking for a simple printer/scanner/copier for my daughter to take to school. I wanted something reliable without tons of menus or complications. It can also read and print directly from several types of memory cards.

So far this printer fits the bill - does everything simply at a decent price. I also bought one for my nephew. The print output looks good and is quick enough for individual use. Simple copying is easy - push one button for B&W or one for color. I don't know how well it will last, as we just started using it.

Downside - There is no separate output tray, so it is easy for printed papers to spit into the paper tray and get jumbled and possibly cause a jam. If you want to walk away during a large print job, this is not the printer for you.

Also, the inks are very expensive. A set of ink cartridges (large capacity) cost almost as much as the printer. True photo quality prints also require a different ink cartridge.
