You need to download the correct drivers for the OS.

You can go to this link:

Tip

Disconnecting the Xerox c2424 Document Scanner


The Xerox c2424 Document Scanner has a very high rate of failure. After very limited use it can generate an error code of 39,012.40 indicating that the document feeder is damaged. Xerox's answer to 99% of the document scanner issues is to replace the unit. But while restarting or cleaning can possibly resolve this issue, it is also possible to just disconnect the scanner and use it independently of the document feeder.

Xerox documentation however, does not instruct the user how to do this and tech support won't walk you though it. (So, courtesy of Pastor Ray of Indiana) Listed here are the steps to operating the scanner without the document feeder:

(1) Perform a standard shutdown on the printer.
(2) Disconnect the Document Feeder from the printer IN THE REAR OF THE PRINTER. You still need the side connector hooked up, the one by the power-on switch, power plug, USB port and all the other goodies.
(3) Power up the printer.
(4) It should work. However...
If for some reason the printer won't copy, then just do what I did in my experimentation:
(1) Perform a standard shutdown on the printer.
(2) Disconnect the Document Feeder from the printer in the rear of the printer.
(3) Physically remove the Document Feeder, leaving the copy platen visible.
(4) Power up the printer.
At this point you should be able to copy stuff.
(5) Physically reattach the Document Feeder, but DON'T reconnect it!
You should still be able to copy, scan, etc.

The Scan head belt broke in our C2424. Where can I get a replacement- technician said we have to order the entire scan head for $500 but all I need is the belt. (No Warranty)


Yeah, Xerox doesn't spare that part. Item Inc offers this part refurb for $350, or $300 if you send them your broken one as exchange. Here's a video of how to replace it. Good luck

Hi,

Windows Vista provides a basic set of scanning drivers, also referred to as Windows Image Aquisition (WIA) drivers, that you can use as an alternative to scan a document when you can not scan using the HP drivers.

  1. Click the Windows Vista (c01319360.gif ) icon, click All Programs , and then click Windows Photo Gallery .
  2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .
  3. Click Import , and then click Scan .


Scanning with Paint To scan a document using Paint in Windows Vista , follow these steps:
  1. Click the Windows Vista (c01319360.gif ) icon, click All Programs , click Accessories , and then click Paint .
  2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .
  3. Make any desired setting changes, and then click Scan .

WorkCentre C2424 Scanning Mac OS X.


Well I haven't necessarily scanned often, but i do know if you open up a program such as word, Excel, PowerPoint, Photoshop, Corel, etc... You are given an option to scan. That way you can scan information, images and such to that program in which you use. C2424 wont give you any support because its a primary printer but the drivers should include drivers for the scanner and the computer to interconnect. If you have any photo like software on your mac. Try looking at the options at your top menu for an option or "import"
Many times it will give you the option to scan from a device.

To scan to computer its software based. Also on the Panel on the printer you should be given an option to scan. If printer is connected by USB it will be easier to detect scans from panel, but if your printer is connected via Ethernet it will be different.

I hope this helps. Try using a program that you can use to edit pictures or display. You should be given an option.

I hope this helps. Let me know what you do? and possibly i can mirror what you do on my own mac
