This means that you have not set up any users in the address book in the printer.

Copy is simple, it will scan the document and print out a copy of the scanned image.

Scan however, is trying to make and store an image file of the scan, but it needs to know WHERE you want to scan it to. The printer does not know where to send the stored image unless you create a storage location for it. This is done with the address book that is stored on the printer.

The material below is how to set up the scanner settings of the printer.

Printer Settings Utility Using the Printer Settings Utility window, you can set up the fax system data options, and create and edit Phonebook entries from your computer. You can also configure the destination launches when you access Scan and then PC.

Hi

Check your System scanner application is running. Open the End Task manager select the tab process and see there may be scanner.exe is there select that one and click end task.

Try it.

Hello, I am attempting to scan an important document and the printer keeps saying "set the document on the platen glass" the document is there but it keeps saying the message


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

I keep getting a message saying I need to have administrator rights to install 1310 printer scanner software. How do I solve this?


Make sure you are logged in as administrator. The reason why you are getting that message is your account does not have administrator rights. You are logged in as a standard user.

Click on Start-->control panel-->User Accounts-->Create a new User Account-->choose the Account type as Administrator-->Restart the computer-->Now try installing.

My scanner won't work. It keeps saying something


You most likely have ONLY installed the Printer side of the software... you ALSO need to install the "Scanner" part too. Go to the web site and get the FULL version for your software.

Need to specify user id before I can fax


This is setup when adding the scanner as a network scanner during the inital installation. The only way I have found to fix this issue to uninstall and reinstall the network printer driver. When going thur setup for the scanner and it asks for a User ID type one in. You can also choose to use a pin or leave blank to not use a pin. Once you have reinstalled, the User ID will then appear on the printer LCD.
