Without knowing exactly what a HP4200 is because they make a lot of different devices with this Model Number, but here I'm assuming it's some form of MFP and the printer works but when you go to scan something in you get the above error message.

This sounds as if you have all of the software installed but either not the Scanner Driver or you have not setup the Scanner after installing the associated software. With most MFP you need to install the Printer Driver & Software first and then after you have connected the Printer through a USB Lead you continue and install the various Scanner Software and Driver.

Generally speaking the Scanner is setup by the Software after the Driver is installed but some need to be manually setup and most times though not all times The Install Process installs the Scanner Driver First and then the associated Software for Scanning.

However if this device isn't connected directly to your computer and you are accessing it over a Network with a lot of MFP's it's possible to print remotely but not scan as you need a direct connection to scan in images. Here it all depends on the device itself if it supports remote use.
