Just bought a new all in one HP Deskjet 4500.
Installed with Windows 7 64 bit.
Scanning isnt working.
Says "No scan options - refer to device documentation".
I have not found any documentation to remedy this.
Any help is appreciated.

I am having the same issue though I am using Windows XP. I am using a WiFi connection. Do I need a USB connection to scan? If so, how will this affect my WiFi setup?

After way too much trouble, and learning that this is a common problem, I found a fix... not ideal, but does the trick. Go to google and type the message below... the instructions are straight forward and worked in about 30 seconds. Good luck.

I believe my problem was due to inadequate product documentation. Once I opened the HP Solution Center I stumbled onto the solution. The Deskjet is working properly, but I would have had much less frustration and stress if the product had included a user friendly user manual. I still do not know why the Scan button has this beside it: Scan (USB only). Where is the documentation?
