Won't scan pictures/documents, etc.

Hi! Our HP scanner will make copies - but not scan to HP Pavillion a1350n. I can scan pictures w/scanner using PhotoShop software - just not directly from scanner.

Thanks for your help!

This is a strange one- and the following may not help;
- Open the Control Panel, then Scanners and Cameras - Delete the listing (if present) for the HP
Leave the scanner 'on' and reboot the PC.
If the weather is right, Windows may (should) find a 'new device' and reinstall the driver for the scanner. If that fails to cure the problem, either reinstall the HP scanner software or download updated software from the HP website (good luck with that - it's a nightmare getting what you need).

HP Scanjet N6010 Once documents are scanned a line appears on the scanned copy


The lines on a scanned document are typicaly caused by dirt on the scanning glass. To clean it use the following steps.

1. Unplug unit.
2. Open the fron access door from the top.
3. Clean both top and bottom **** glass that run the width of the scanner.

The glass can be cleaned with a lint free cloth and a mild glass cleaner.

The scanner keeps jamming. i try to scan form the document feeder &the papers keep getting stuck. It will not complete a scan!what do i do?


In summary: * Very unintuitive, convoluted and unpleasant to use (same on Win2K as XP) - sometimes the SW hangs during scan and needs a reboot - sometimes the SW crashes with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot - sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf
Advantages: I cannot see any advantages with this product
Disadvantages: Software is convoluted and unreliable, paper jams are difficult to clear

function showHideReviewText( sType ) { if ( sType == 'more' ) { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('less'); }; } else { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('more'); }; } } ...with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot
- sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf every page is blank
- very occasionally it scans a document properly
*If the sheet-feeder jams is says to refer to the documentation to clear it, which doesn't exist. There is no way to clear the jam except to pull hard & hope. No levers to release it like one would expect.
*Frequently has error ...
...cycled to work again.

Everything has to be started by pressing a button on an application called "HP Director". There are 4 apps started from this:
1) Scan Picture
2) Scan Document
3) Make Copies
4) View & Print
also Help
also Settings (which are used in conjunction with settings found in (1) and (2)!)
- Each application has to be exited to return to "HP Director"
its a worst scanner
and prone to jamming problem

Hp 3670 no longer scans to computer with vista 32 bit upgrade. Scanner will only scan out copies to printer. worked fine with windows xp


You can use Paint or a similar program to scan in a picture/document with your scanner.
Once in Paint you can select from Open the option of From Scanner.
You can change the size to fit the page in Paint and then save it to a file which can be opened and sent to a printer.
It's very basic, of course and it doesn't give you the options to set the scanner options usually found in the HP Toolbox.

Under ''Where do you want to send the scanned image, Scan to'' list box is empty in HP Solution Center for HP scanjet G4010. You can not type a destination in the box. Does someone have a solution or...


Hi wjacks1

When you scan a picture it will be saved as a file in a directory When you scan a document, there are 2 ways to do it. You can as an image in which case it may be automatically saved in a directory with the names like scan0001, csan002 etc
If you selected the option to scan as a document then "scan to " should show few programs in the list like Microsoft document, notepad etc.
If you do everything the correct way, and still no list comes up, probably you have to reinstall the HPSolution Centre or update it from the HP website.
Good luck

SOFTWARE 4 HP PACKAARO SCANJET ADF


If you are using WinXP or Vista, the drivers for the device are part of the driver packages included with the operating system. As far as software to operate the scanner, MS Office products include the capability to use an attached scanner to scan documents and images as well as a Document Imaging Tool and a Document Scanning Tool.. Many other packages also offer the same type of functionality. Going directly to the HP site (www.hp.com) and selecting the Support and Drivers tab, selecting the 'download drivers and software' button and entering 'scanjet' and the specific model number of your device can give you any software that they still have available for your product. They have a long list of scanners that they provide DeskScan and Copy software for WinXP/Win2K, etc. The newer ones also have updated drivers and software for Vista users.

Not able to scan and print as like copier


When you use a regular copier, it doesn't save, right? It just copies. That's the whole idea behind the Copy program that came with your scanner - for your scanner to operate as a copy machine. What you want is document management software.

Therefore, the very best solution is to download a (free) program that will convert files (Word, Excel, etc.) into PDF files. Click here for a list of such programs.

Suggestion: Never use image files for document management because they don't have any of the necessary features, such as the ability to search the contents of a digital document, the ability to comment, etc. And you want a program that will convert into PDF - try to stay away from other file formats as PDF (Adobe) is the "standard."

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document


Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

HP Solutions Center can not communicate with HP 3500c Scanner


Had exact same problem. Went to HP site and they said to check "add or remove programs" functions (in control panel) and if there are multiple copies of HP software to download their fix. I checked, had multiple copies, downloaded patch and all worked well again.
