Greetings,

Yikes, that is a problem. Just curious if you have contacted Kodak about this? You can call their support number at 800 421 6699

In my experience, when this happens it is often the result of no ink in the carts. If that happens the scanner stops working to protect the printer. Passing air through a print head can damage it. So, if there is no ink and you try to scan the printer thinks you are attempting to print the scan so it won't let you complete the task. This is generally common to all inkjet printers.

If there is something else involved, we can move ahead from there.

Talk to you soon,

Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound


I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

Please follow the steps given below to add the scanner using Scanner and Camera wizard.

1. Plug your scanner into your computer.
2. If your scanner is "Plug and Play," the "Scanner and Camera Wizard" starts or double-click add device. Follow the instructions on your screen.

Note:

1. To open "Scanners and Cameras," click "Start," click "Control Panel," click "Printers and Other Hardware" and then click "Scanners and Cameras."

Scanning to email


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Canon MP620) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Then just save it as a GIF or a JPEG and send it as an attachment.

Hope that helps.

Dell 1815 dn printer scanner issue: single line appears in scans


Do you get the same line when you use the adf for other purposes?

If so, check the scanner glass just before the platen for something like white-out on it. Clean both the scanner glass and platen glass with Windex.

That is a common problem on all ADF scanners.

Good Luck

Scanner


If you are getting this message when you are trying to scan from the All-In-One.
And If the software is successfully installed in your computer, then you should have a icon in your desktop as HP Solution (if not got to Start> All Programs> HP> HP Solution Center) Then try scanning from there, if you are able to scan from there then try the steps bellow.
Open solution center> Settings> Scan settings> Scan to setup> Then in this window click on Restore defaults> Then apply or ok and close all the windows and try to scan from the All-In-One printer.
If it still does not work then try the bellow steps:
Go to:
My computer>C:windows>system32
Copy hpzipm12
minimize this window

Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste
minimize this window.

Go back to My computer>C:>windows>system32
Copy hpzinw12
minimize this window

Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste

Now go to My Computer>C:Program Files>HP>Digital Imaging>bin>
Copy hpqtra08
close this window

Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste
Restart the computer

Open Hp Solution Center> Settings>Scan settings and preferences> Scan to button>

HOW TO SCAN ON HP PSC 1315


i have a Vista system and an old hp 1315. the CD driver that came with it includes some very useful software that cannot be installed in my laptop. according to the hp website, that's because Vista comes with a compatible software for my hardware. checking Windows Help & Support gave me this solution:

Open to Windows Photo Gallery, click File then click Import from Camera or Scanner.

i did exactly that and it worked!

i hope this was of some help.
