Multi-tasking softwares while using scanner

A previous IT person, whom I cannot contact, set my system up to scan and work other software simultaneously. I downloaded a new software into my computer, and at the same time lost the ability to multi-task while scanning with my Fujitsu fi5120C. I'd "really" like this ability to scan and run excel at the same time again. The only program I could NOT run while scanning was Outlook, otherwise I was good to go! Any insight? Apprec!

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action please disconnect that scanner from power source and uninstall the scanner driver. Restart the pc and install a fresh copy of the scanner driver. This can resolve the problem, during the scanner start up it tends to align itself. It may just be misaligned which can cause a mechanical noise.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I hava a canon dr-2010c scanner. but when I scan the paper through capture touch 2.0 than scanning very fine but when I scan through capture perfect 3.0 than show black page scanning.


Normally it is advisable to use only one Scanning Software. The software has various files which may overwrite the previously installed version. The later version works good.

It is also possible that the brightness/contrast settings in Captureperfect 3 is not proper. Try scanning after altering these.

Scan document error


This is typically a software issue and has nothing to do with the scanner itself. Try these steps out and see if it helps.
  • At the Control Panel go to "Find and Fix Problems" under System and Security
  • Next, under Programs select "Run Programs made for previous versions of Windows"
  • A box will appear (Program Compatibility). Press the "Next." It will begin to detect programs that may have compatibility problems with windows.
  • Scroll down and select your scanning software, then select "Next"
  • Select "Fix Using Recommended Settings". It will next prompt you to test their recommended setting by starting the program. Select "start the Program"
  • If the test works, it will ask you to save the new settings.

I push the scan button and it wont scan


There are several reasons why this may occur. The causes for this problem fall into four categories:
  • A system configuration problem.
  • The task that monitors the SCAN button is not running.
  • A cable problem.
  • A hardware/software conflict. NOTE: The SCAN button on the front panel is not functional when the unit is installed in the Windows 2000 operating system. The Windows 2000 drivers do not provide this functionality. Initiate any scans from the HP scan viewer software, or from within a TWAIN-capable application.
  • The computer might not be configured to work well with the HP Officejet software. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. The power management features for the hard drive must be disabled. Click Start , Settings , and Control Panel . Double-click Power Management . Set Turn of hard disks to Never , and click OK .
    2. Turn off Windows Active Desktop. Right-click an empty space on Windows Desktop. Place the cursor on the Active Desktop menu item to reveal the sidebar menu. If Display As Web Page has a check beside it, click Display As Web Page to clear that selection and turn off Windows Active Desktop.
  • The software that checks that the Scan button is pressed may not be running. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. To see if it is running, press CRTL + ALT + DELETE at the same time to bring up the Close Program dialog box.
    2. Look through the list of programs, and see if HPMDLBWA (HP Officejet R Series) or HPODLB08 (PSC 500) is listed as a running program. This task checks if the Scan button is depressed and must be running for the button to work. If it is present, go to Step 3.
    3. Click Cancel , Start , Programs , and Startup . See if HPMDLBWA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) is listed in the Startup group. If it is listed, and it was not running when checked, restart the computer, and check it again.
    4. If HPMDLBWA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) is not listed under Startup , uninstall the software by clicking Start , Settings , Control Panel , and Add/Remove Programs . Highlight the HP software, and click Remove . Restart the computer, then reinstall the software.
  • The printer cable may be loose, bad or not IEEE-1284 compliant. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. Check the printer parallel port cable to see if it is IEEE-1284 compliant. It may not be a bidirectional compliant cable if this marking does not appear.
    2. Double-click the product Toolbox , and click the Services tab.
    3. Click Test Product Communication , and Test . If the communication test does not pass or does not indicate that Two Way Communication is Working Properly , there might be a cable problem or a hardware or software conflict. Loosen both ends of the cable, and resecure them. Perform the communication test again. If it fails again, try a different cable if available.
  • There may be a software or hardware conflict. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. If a printer with a status monitor, a scanner, a multifunction device, or another parallel port device such as an external drive or a switch box is previously installed, these devices and all associated software should be removed. Consult the product vendor for assistance with this. Try pressing the SCAN button as each device is removed to see if the problem is eliminated.
    2. Click Start , Programs , HP Officejet R-Series , and HP Precisionscan , or click Start , Programs , HP PSC 500 , and HP PSC Scanning for the PSC 500. The scanning software should load. If the software loads successfully, the problem is most likely a software conflict.
    3. Close all running applications.
    4. Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to bring up the Close Program dialog box. In Windows NT, select Task Manager .
    5. Explorer, Systray and HPMDLBIA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) are the only tasks that are to be left running. Highlight one of the remaining tasks, and click End Task . The Close Program window will close so it will be necessary to repeat Steps 3 and 4 several times to come to the desired files. In Windows NT, End Process on everything that is allowed by Windows NT, except for the HP process.
    6. Press the SCAN button, and see if the software loads. If it loads, one of the tasks running in the background is causing a conflict.
    7. Restart the computer, and End Task one task at a time, pressing the SCAN button after each task is ended to determine which task is causing the problem.

I have installed the UE 404090, but cannot scan to my PC. It says no twain compliant found. If I press scan/file on the machine it says select destination _ what can I do there?


Hi,

Have you at some point installed a second scanning device on the system..

Reason being TWAIN is configured slightly different by every manufacturer to optomise the working of their hardware.

It some cases when you install a TWAIN device for Scanner A this can interfere with Scanner B
Usually its because your trying to use TWAIN(scanner A) on Scanner B

Make sense?

Make sure (if you have installed another scanner device) that you are using the TWAIN software that came with .

You might need to reinstall the entire set up from beginning.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

What operating system you using? Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. If the HP software is not supported by your OS, then Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away. Then import in outlook, etc.

Transfer scan settings from one computer to another?


You need to do it only once! Capture perfect remembers the previous setting. If you install Capture perfect in another system it will be only in the defalut mode. You cannot transfer the settings

Scanning with lexmark x2500


This is a function of the optical character recognition (ocr) software, not the scanner. Most scanners have bundled software that include ocr and retail ocr software is available. Good quality originals are necessary to minimize the amount of manual corrections and the ease of making those corrections is what you want in the ocr program or you end up better off retyping a document if 100% accuracy is required. Graphics are a consideration when scanning mixed documents so don't rule out cutting and pasting those separately if necessary in Word. Take the time to master the software if this is a common task for you keeping in mind that better software usually merits the extra cost if it saves you time. Don't neglect the scanner settings for resolution as the software works only as well as what you present it to recognize. A Google search on scanning will help you on specific tasks as there are whole books on this subject. ~Steve Medley
