get the Toshiba web page find your model and download suitable for win vista
the model c7183 is in the c1780 family so the driver and software will be the same for c7180 set of units

I also had the same problem with HP Officejet 6310 and after trying all the solutions that I could find on the web, I was almost giving up. Then I found this on HP's IT Resource Center website (author J.Eqbal) and tried it and finally it scanned without the error message.
This error happens only in Network connections.
Get the Ip address of the Printer and open the EWS page by typing i.e http://192.168.1.102...where 192.168.x.x.x is the IP address of the Printer.
On the EWS page click on Network and get the host name and copy it.
go to the following location C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc...inside etc you will find the host file open it using notepad.
Underneath 127.0.0.1 local host
there might be the Ip address and host name ..which will be different from the current host name...change the Ip address and host name ..save the file.
Try to scan...it will definitely work.

no printheads are not removable in photosmart c7180 , thats why its not visible.. the printhead and the ink cartridge are attached.

HP Photosmart... | Answered on May 08, 2015


It might be empty, clogged or damaged.. Take it out and go to some ink filler service where they have an ultrasound unclogger ; they can verify status of the head, refill it or rate it, if that's the problem..
If problem is clogging, might be too late because sometimes if you keep your printer head in use, might not be possible to repair it.
If it is damaged, no way, you must buy a new one.

CHECK THE PRINT SETTINGS FOR THE DOCUMENT YOU ARE SENDING TO THE PRINTER YOU MAYBE TRYING TO SEND IT AS A LETTER SIZE INSTEAD OF DL SIZE. YOU CAN FIND THIS IN THE PRINTER PROPERTIES WHEN PRINTING THE DOCUMENT CHECK PAPER SIZE.

Sad to say I know how to fix this.
1. Power up the printer
2. set printer's date to the current day.
3. On the keypad press the * and # keys together
Now press one at a time 1,2,3 for the code
"screen stould display a white backround with 2 lines of info"
4. remove all the print cartridges
5. Press the >> arrow button twice until "reset menu" is found
6. Press OK
7. Select Partially full reset Press ok
( the printer will take almost to minutes before it powers down)
8. Power up the printer and follow the steps.
reinstall ink ect......

I don't know why this happens but I sure a lot of printers are in the trash because of this. If you print out a SELF TEST REPORT the
dates on the age of the ink Cartridges are likely out of life range.
Planned obsolescence by HP can be found all over the web. This could be one of those.
