Unable to scan to a file

The "scan to "drop down" menu is blank, even though I select a file to scan to. When I scan a document the printer comes back with a message "error unable to scan to file". During installation I select the file to scan to, however, the system is not retaining the information.

Aargh! This frustrating.

How do set up my lexmark pro901 to scan to my pc so that I can email the scans


Make sure the Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer driver is installed on your computer. If you have the install disc that came with your printer, just insert it to your computer hard driver and follow the instructions on your computer screen. You can also the download the printer driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/d3ftso. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Again, just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Note: The install disc contains the Lexmark OCR scan software necessary for scanning documents for editing and saving them as PDF files. The downloaded driver does not contain the OCR software.
To scan to your computer using the printer operator panel:

1. From the home screen, navigate to Scan to Computer: Scan > Scan to Computer

2. Touch USB-Connected Computer or the name of a network computer. The local or network computer is the destination that will receive the scan. Wait until the printer has finished downloading a list of the scan applications available on the selected computer.

3. Select an application (in your case your email), and then touch Accept.

4. Select the color, resolution quality and the original image size. If necessary, touch Accept each time you make a selection.

5. Press the start button to start scanning. The scan is complete when the application you selected in step 4 opens on the destination computer, and the scan appears within the application as a new file.

To scan to your computer using the printer software (Lexmark Printer Home):

For Windows:


1. Click Start.

2. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.

3. Select Printer Home.

4. Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

5. Click Email, and then select Photo, Document or PDF.

Note: You can select Document only if an OCR application is stored on your computer. Scanning starts and the scan progress dialog appears.

6. When the scan is finished, a new e-mail message is created with the scanned document automatically attached.

7. Compose your e-mail message. Note: If your e-mail program does not open automatically, then you can scan the document to the computer and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.


For Mac:


1. From the Finder desktop, double-click the printer program folder.

2. Double-click the printer Center to open the All-In-One Center.

3. From the "What is being scanned?" menu on the main screen, select a document type.

4. From the "How will the scanned image be used?" menu, choose To be viewed on monitor/web page.

5. From the "Send scanned image to" menu, choose an application.

6. Click Scan.

7. Retrieve the scanned image from the application, and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.

Scanning a document


#1 You can't typ in the "Scan To" box, only select from the drop down. If there is nothing in the drop down then it is probably a software install problem. I had to uninstall ALL HP software (including updates) from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, Disconnect the scanner and reinstall from scratrch.

I was working with a HP 1200PSC and HP SJ 4890, let me know what you have.

I can't Scan 8 1/2 by 14. It cuts the scan to that of a regular paper. I can fax by 8 1/2 by 14 and it comes out alright. how i do the set up. I used the set up in the scan but it did not help.


I also had problems scanning legal size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. The documents would scan but would not come out complete. A large portion of the text would always be left out and only an image of the size of regular page size would come out. I knew it had to be something with the settings, so after experimenting with my MFC-7440N I came to the conclusion that I was not going to find the solution on the actual machine. I had a "Hunch" that I would find my solution by connecting the printer to my laptop computer and use the software that came with it. After a couple of minutes I was able to scan Legal Size documents in a breeze... I should of done this months ago. All scanned docs came out in full size.

So I took some screen shots to post them up here to let everyone know how to scan legal size documents since I noticed that people are having trouble just like I did. With this instructions you will also be able to scan any available size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. I will also guide you step by step. After step 4 the remainder steps are OPTIONAL unless you need to change the color or picture file types. Okay, here we go!

Step 1.
Make sure your MFC-7440N is connected to your computer and the computer has the software installed that came with the printer.
Place the Legal Sized documents/papers that you want to scan on the Paper Feeder Scanner located on the most upper area of the machine.

Step 2. On your computer, go to START then to DEVICES and PRINTERS, or CONTROL PANEL then DEVICES and PRINTERS. Locate the icon of your MFC-7440N. If its not your DEFAULT printer make it the default one. Then RIGHT Click on the icon. A menu will pop open. Locate START SCAN and click it.

Step 3. A small window will open that will give you various options to scan a multitude of sizes and different settings. Locate where it says SOURCE. The default setting might be FLATBED meaning the flatbed scanner of your machine. Click the drop down menu and select FEEDER. By selecting the feeder option your computer will tell your machine to use the automatic paper scanner located on the most upper area of your machine.

Step 4. Locate PAPER SIZE. Click on the drop down menu and then select Legal 8.5 x 14 inches (216 x 356mm).
If your documents are already located in the feeder you can now go ahead and click SCAN and your documents will begin to scan.
Your scanned documents will be saved in a file folder in your computer and that file will pop open for your convenience once all documents are scanned.

If you need to change COLOR or Black and White setting plus Picture File Types such as Jpeg or Tiff just click on their respective drop down menu before clicking SCAN.Here are some pictures to help me illustrate it.

I hope you find this helpful.

Thank You!
