Deskjet F4280 - can't scan to PDF

When I open the File Type drop-down list in the Scan to file Save Options screen, PDF does not appear as a file type.  I have Adobe Extended Pro installed on my computer.  Solution?

Re: Deskjet F4280 - can't scan to PDF

This can possibly solve your problem:

 

0. you should have the CD that came along with the printer. the solution that is listed below is working for windows xp operating system. 

1. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to the DocProc folder. -> Double-click Docproc.msi to install.  you will not see any progress etc.,
2. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to Qfolder . -> Double-click Qfolder.msi to install.  same as above.

3. Go back to your HP solution centre and under scan settings option you shhould get to see the PDF options (and a few others as well).

 

cheers

Re: Deskjet F4280 - can't scan to PDF

if you do not have CD.. for Xp/Vista.... downlod the driver from the link given below:

 

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=al-59236-4&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&...

 

once the download is complete, double-click the downloaded file and extract the files

click Start >> Run and type %temp%

open the folder that starts with 7Z

inside this, you will find the SETUP folder. follow the steps as given before.

This also works for the Deskjet F4180 so it may work for the F4100 and F4200 series.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Kalyanaraman! Worked like a charm on my F4180.  After 3 years, I can now scan in PDF.
