The other scanner is probably scanning at a low resolution or only in black and white.

Lower the resolution on your scanner or make it black and white only.

How to scan into my computer


Hello, I am happy to help you with your question. Samsung SCX-4200 supplies software calls Samsung Smarthru. This software application includes a scan command. The software is locagted on the CD that accompanied the printer.

Here are some excerpts from the manual:

Your machine offers the following ways to scan an image:

• From TWAIN-compliant software: You can use other

software including Adobe Photoshop Deluxe and Adobe

Photoshop.

• From the Windows images Acquisition (WIA) driver: Your

machine supports the WIA driver for scanning images.

• From the Samsung SmarThru software: Launch Samsung

SmarThru and open Scan To to begin scanning.

NOTE: To scan with your machine, you must install the
software.


Loading document

You can use the document glass to load an original document

for copying and scanning.

1 Lift and open the document cover.

2 Place the document face down on the document glass

and align it with the registration guide at the top left

corner of the glass.

3 Close the document cover. Be careful not to move the

document.

NOTES:

• Leaving the document cover open while copying may affect

copy quality and toner consumption.


So, basically, if you have the software installed. Open the Smarthru software, load your original onto the glass, face down, and close the lid. Select scan, the software may provide you with a preview of the scanned image. Once you scan the document, you must save it to a location on your hard drive, often it is called "My Scans" in your "my documents" file.

I hope that this is helpful. I have attached a link directly to the Samsung website manual for your model

Lift the flatbed scanner lid and load the original that is to be scanned face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of the document located in the lower-right corner of the glass. Gently close the lid.

On the product control panel, press Scan To.

How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?


Hi there,

Scanning images,
About Scanning images
You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

* Before scanning
Before scanning images, confirm the following :
- Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
If the software is not installed, install it.
- Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
- Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

Scanning Methods.

A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

* ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
- This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.

*If you are using Windows XP
The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

*When using Mac OS X
For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
3) Select the scan option.
a) Press [Scan].
The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
Scan standby screen is displayed.
Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.
Save as PDF file : The document is scanned and stored as a PDF file.

OPen with application : The document is scanned and displayed on the registered application software.

4) Press [Color] or [Black].
The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

C) Scanning from an Application Software
You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).

Hope this helps.

I can't figure out how to scan multiple pages to one file


Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing fixya.com

It is possible to scan different batches scanned from the ADF into one PDF file. When loading more pages in the ADF after the first realm is finished, it asks if you want to continue scanning to the same file. After that, it will continue scanning to the same file. However, this feature can be selected in the Adobe Acrobat application itself. From HP software, if we load the paper after one realm of paper in the ADF is finished, it will scan the second realm to a different file. If you want to continue scanning to the same file, you need to have either Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat installed on the computer. Adobe Reader will not provide this feature. After installing either Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Exchange, perform the following steps to scan pages to a single file:
  1. Make sure your scanner is turned on.
  2. Start Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat.
  3. Put the document into the scanner (usually face down on the scan bed).
  4. In Adobe Acrobat, click File , then Import , and Scan .
  5. Select the device and whether you are scanning a single- or double-sided document.
  6. The scanning software opens and the scanner completes a preview scan.
  7. When the preview scan comes up, make any adjustments you would like, including selecting the area you want to appear in the final scan.
  8. Click Scan . This will get the final scan into the computer.
  9. Your scanning software should take you back to Adobe Acrobat.
  10. In Adobe Acrobat, you should see a small window asking you if you want to scan another page. If the document you are scanning has more than one page, click the Next Page button. If this is the only page, click Done .
    NOTE: Scanning multiple pages causes each page to append to the previously scanned page. If you have multiple pages, but want them to be in different files, click Done after each page to create separate files.
  11. When you have scanned the last page, click Done on the window described in step 10.
  12. Your scanned pages will open in Adobe Acrobat. Scroll through to make sure that everything is there.
  13. Click File , and then Save As to name your file and save it.
Still unable to figure out, How to do this? Here are some tutorial on HP website that might help.
