     I have an HP All-in-one (specifically Officejet 6500 Wireless) that didn't work for scanning, either. Go to the HP driver link and get the updated driver, follow the directions carefully. Seems as though while following directions, I noted there were a couple things Ubuntu didn't do (in the way of creating special directories/files). One I got the newer driver and followed the directions on installation from the website, it worked! HP driver pages were very friendly and provided nice directions, but are not on the HP Website. You need the updated hplip driver. Follow link at:


     I'm pretty sure this will help you. I find your printer (HP Photosmart c3180 All-in-one Printer) listed as a supported model. Select download from the link, select "Photosmart/Photosmart Pro" from the drop-down list, and the c3180 for the printer model... pages step you through installation pretty nicely.

Can you help with this problem?
