Guys...I have a HP Photosmart C4680 printer/scanner, etc. The printer works great but when I click on the HP solutions center icon and try to scan it won't let me scan. It just comes up with an logo that says f i on it and when I click on it it won't take me anywhere. What the F*ck is going on? Can anyone help me? This just happened. I've been working on it for the past couple hours and I can't get anyone at HP on the phone. Can someone post here how to fix this or can someone from HP call me and coach me through repairing it on the phone? Thanks!
HPSE is a subset an older Full Feature Software suite.
HPSE features are very similar to the HP Scan Software released after 2015.
Although HPSE appears to be a separate software, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the Full Feature Software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing and using HPSE.
OPTIONAL: Add HP Scan Extended shortcut to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start
Right-ClickHPScan.exe> SelectSend to Desktop(Create a Shortcut)
Right-ClickHPScan.exe> SelectPin to Start
HPScanExtended features include (and are not limited to): Single, Multiple scans, Image and PDF scans, Email as PDF / JPEG, Source selection, Page Size choices includeAuto-Detect(extracts image / document boundary). Mightinclude OCR (Save as Editable Text).
Programs / Software like Paint(mspaint) can be used to scan.
Dragon-Fur...the HP Scan and Capture seems to work! I downloaded it and it's scanning perfect. Thanks for forwarding on the link. Guess I won't be using flash player anymore or the HP Solutions Center icon anymore...lol
