Software downloaded and still will not scan


have you installed the TWAIN drivers? the easiest way to get the printer to scan is to use the software that came with the printer, if you have the CD put it in your computer and follow the instructions to load the scanner software, this will automatically install the TWAIN drivers for you.

G85 printer making horizontal strips


Check the scanner cable and the status of the LED's in the scanning head. Unluckily, you printer is disposable, to HP that problem will mean to discard the entire printer and replace it for a new one if it's still under warranty.

Scanning editable text to microsoft word


You need to install an OCR application that translates the "picture" that the scanner takes into editable text (something like OmniPage).
I would think such a program was bundled with your G85, if that is not the case you should try to figure out what program was in use and doing that earlier, install it if you still have it.
