HP Officejet 4500 printers are no doubt very much convenient and efficient for a long term working purpose. I have a HP officejet 4500 printer at my office which is connected with a wired Ethernet connection. Now the issue with this printer is that I am completely unable to scan through this printer for some reason. There is not even a single problem with the printing a document or a copy, the printer does the printing job and other thing absolutely fine but then don’t know for what reason its failing to scan anything. As far as I remember I never did any sort of changes to my computer or did any kind of experimenting activity with the main system or other network connected computers. There is no problem while scanning with the other computers that are on the network, it scans with them without giving any trouble but then when it comes to the main computer I always end up getting an error message saying “HP Imaging device not found”.
Did all the possible things until now but everything failed, no solutions are even able to stop this error message. Rebooted the system then unplugged the printer, also uninstalled the software and then reinstalled them but nothing worked. Believing that there must be something wrong with the installer I also uninstalled and then re-downloaded the installer from the official site of HP, but that doesn’t seems to be working at all. Then I was also suggested to check out the firewall settings but when I checked the firewall setting trust me there was nothing I found over there that would give me a reason to doubt the firewall setting. The entire computer that are running on the network are having windows 7 64bit installed into them including the one that is not at all working with the scanning. The other entire windows 7 64 bit machines are working fine then what’s wrong with this one? another thing I would like to say is that always whenever I get “HP Imaging device not found” error message I also end up getting some sort of numbers that are mentioned below the error message they are 8, [ ( 1, 0, -2147221496)]. Please suggest something.
