Absent additional information like scanner, pc, size of document being scanned etc., try to reduce the resolution of the document being scanned. Large documents at high resolution require a lot of disk space, and room to cache the scan until complete. Low disk space can be an issue as well.

Scanning slow

When you scan a high resolution, it will be a slow process. change the resolution to a lower setting. start with half the resolution and go down, as long as you have a good quality picture.

Lower the DPI you are scanning at. The Higher the DPI the slower it will be to scan the document.

My F4180 HP Scanner/Printer is painfully slow to scan. What could be the problem. Didn't use to be like this.

Has the scanning resolution been changed? That is the most common reason why the scan would take a long time to complete. If you're just scanning for the web, set the resolution to 72dpi and see if that speeds it up.

Hope this helps.

Slow copying

normally, it's because you are copying in a high resolution. have a look at your user manual, lower the scan resolution and it should be a lot faster. Check that you're scanning in black and white -that can speed things up as well.
