    I am trying to scan from my HP Officejet 4500 Allinone, but it is not working. the error message reads "The san cannot be performed because another program has control of the HP imaging device. ...."

    I try the troubleshooting steps, nothing works.

    Is it possible to use the scanning function of this all-in-one from a mac?
