Hi kbush58,

Yes, you can choose where or create a new destination file for your scanner. Your printer should have management utility. On the first page you see there should be a toolbar with items like File, Tools> preferences etc.. preferences is what we want. In Pref. you can browse where you want your scans, copies or whatever to go. This is where creating a new folder comes in. I always tell everyone that it is easiest to create the new folder on your desktop, that way you don't forget where it is. Name the folder anything you want I would suggest psc2210scans or whatever. In device utility/prefrences browse to your new folder and select it, that's it. Now your unit will deliver your data here. I hope this helps you.

Thanks for using

Sincerely, cyyyd7

My hp psc will not scan an object everything else seems to work how do i fix it

Double Click on HP Solution Center icon to open. The HP icon will be on your desktop or in your start menu. It is the icon that materializes after you use the CD to install your HP scanner or multifunction printer. (It may appear slightly different depending on the model and type of HP scanner or printer).
Place the document or photo on the glass platen in the proper corner. There is an arrow that illustrates proper placement in HP scanners and printers.
Click the settings button on the bottom of the HP Solution center screen. It appears as a wrench. This will assist in setting up your scanner or all-in-one HP printer to scan at the touch of a button. Follow the on-screen prompts for photos and documents. Then, scan by clicking the Scan Picture or Scan Document button as appropriate.
Select the proper choice once you scan, such as save to file (specify where) or email (You also can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computer will create a default my scans folder and organize them by saving them by date and month scan.
Click scan and then wait for box to appear. You will see the document or photo being saved and the blue bar will display progress in the HP screen.
Save the file if the HP software has not already done this for you. Put it in a folder you create and give it a name you will remember.
Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.
Repeat the process for multiple pages. Keep the HP Solution Center screen open until your scans are finished.

How do i scan with hp psc 2210 ? It says it is saving it to hp gallery but cant find it on computer

Uninstall printer and reinstall. This printersoftware is pretty vulnerable. If nescessary, get the driver from and run from there. You can probably scan from a picture editing program like PhotoShop or others like it. File>Import>twain - and your psc 2210.

2210 making noises right back side,originally said needs relignment,know it says scanner failure

Hello, Tim.

Often, the problem is that the scanner mirror needs to be cleaned.

If you are comfortable, disassemble and clean the scanner equipment. Sticks, glasses and mirrors, all should be accessible.

Some notes:
- Clean everything with glass cleaner
- Check where the white stripe is on the bottom of the glass plate
- Put a mark on the plastic, where this stripe is located, so you know the location of the stripe on the outside as well.
- Enlarge this mark, so it is on the main body as well
- Remove the glass again
- Align the scan head by hand, so that the bottom mirror is exactly on line with your mark
- Put everything back together
- Be careful, don't move the scan unit
- Turn it on when it's complete

If still a problem, the unit needs to be serviced.

Hope this helps.

Can't get scanner to work

Try oprning up Windows Photo Gallery, then File tab at top, then click on Import from Scanner or Camera.

The HP should come up as an option, so click on it.

I found that with upgrade to Vista, the actual SCAN button on the HP 2210 did not work -- but this back door through Photo Gallery lets me scan and import the scan as a jpg file.

Trying to scan a picture

if your using the "scan" button on the panel of the computer it wont work, in order for the button to work you need to install the software.

if your trying to scan from the pc and you cant scan, try these:
1. right click on the solution center icon on your desktop
2. go to properties
3. click on open file location
4. search for hpscnvw.exe
5. right click on that application then send to desktop
6. now when it is on your desktop, use and click on that icon everytime you want to scan

This document applies to the PSC 2210, PSC 2210v, and PSC 2210x. When you see the scanner failure message, turn off the PSC 2210. Wait a few seconds and then turn on the PSC 2210. If you see the message again, please contact HP Support.
