I have installed HP PHoto and Imaging Softward for ScanJet 3570c 48 bit. Everytime I try to click on icons on the scanner, my computer shows an error message that there is a problem with connecting to the...


Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.

I downloaded the disk for my scanner and now I dont know what to do so I can ues it.


Not sure what kind of scanner you have, but on my Lexmark, I have to push the scan button on the printer to scan. It then downloads the application list to the scanner, and scans. After it scans, then the Lexmark Imaging Studio (the downloaded program on the computer) comes up on the computer screen, and received the scan. Not knowing what kind of scanner you have, I can only explain in generalities. Good luck, and hope this helps.

This is a general solution for all IT products. ( I dont have PowerLook2100XL). Uninstall the scanner and disconnect. Start the computer and run scandisk/chkdisk and eliminate any errors in the OS. Restart the computer and load the scanner driver and scanning software. Normally this hsould work. Good Luck

How to scan slides with Visioneer 9520 USB Scanner - it scans who


I have successfully used my Visioneer 9520 to scan 35mm slides, and they came out perfect. To do this, in my image editing software, I select File/Import/Acquire/Visioneer ScanManger Pro. This opens the VIsioneer scan manager window, where I select "Scan 35mm using:" and then I choose the desired scanning configuration, e.g., "35mm Better, 35mm Best, Custom" etc. See image below.
BTW: After several moves, I have lost my 35mm scanning template. Do you know where I can get another one, or do you know someone who could actually scan theirs and email the image to me? I could then create a duplicate from heavy black construction paper or card stock.

How do I get the scanner to work?


You need to either use the software that came with the scanner (if you got any) or if an older scanner that only provided drivers, then, for images, use any photo editing software and look for an Import from button - select TWAIN and your scanner and/or then look for an Acquire button if available - some programs automatically start scanning once you select the scanner, others like PaintShopPro require you to then Acquire the images. Many other photo editing programs just have an Import from scanner option.

You mention a printer as well - is it an all-in-one?? I've an Epson AIO but the software that came with it, allows me to choose whether I want to import the image to the PC or print it out - you may need to check your manual if you have one or search online for info about your model.

(If you want to scan documents try scanning them through Adobe if you have it, or search online for some other text importing type software programs that are free and will work quite well.) Hope that helps? Romayne
