Scanner not recognized

I'm trying to scan using c4480 scanner/printer attached to a MacBook Pro using OS 10.5.x.  When I try to open the "HP Scan Pro" software I get a message saying "scanner could not be initialized (scanner cannot be found)".  I am able to print so I know there's a connect between the printer and computer.  How do I troubleshoot this?


Bonus issue - I am able to print, but color doesn't seem to work; only B/W.  Would this be a problem with color printer cartridge?
