Scanner problems on HP Photosmart C4180

When I go to scan something onto my computer from a book, it only copies a segment of the text and enlarges it. For example, when copying 2 adjacent pages from a book, only the bottom half of the first page will appear on my screen.

Any solutions?

When scanning or copying on my C4180 a thick black line appears on the right hand side of the page. This does not happen when printing.


clean the scanner glass... completely .. if you are scanning /copying from ADF .. then clean the adf rollers as well ..

You will be able to lift the ADF rollers and there will be a mat as well underneath the rollers.. clean them as well ..
the issue would be resolved.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    HP Photosmart C4180 scanner


    Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

    HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

    C4180 Scan Work Around

    They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

    Thanks for using Fixya.
