    Whats the make and model of the unit?

  • Maurice Holliday May 11, 2010

    Note: By "machine", I mean the scanner itself. Are you able to scan to names that were already added to the scanner?

    Are you using the same IP adress for more the one device? Each device needs it own sepperate adress to work correctly..

    This is something set up on your individual machine. You will have to go thru the menus to find it. If you let me know what kind of machine it is and the model number, I can help you more.

How can i hook up the scanner?

Hook the network cable to your scanner nec card on the machines, note that this machine has two nec cards, one for printer and one for scanner.
after that Go to the setting and under setting/Scanner Default create and ip address for the scanner. after you done from that go to the computer browser, type in the ip address, you can choose scan to smb or pc.
Scan to smb needs shard folder but scan to pc needs to run software on your computer on your pc.
Setup the sender list which you need to fill only the ip address of the machine as sender.
Go to destination setup the ip address of the computer you scanning to, the path is the shared folder name, and the user name and password of your computer and you good to go.

To make it easy for you, Provide me your email and i will attach the scanning manual to help you setup it correctly and you can always get back to me in any question.

Problem with scanner not maintaining profile and producing network error, usually re initiallizing the scanner from the location works, but not always

Go into the copier's web page and look at your scan destinations. If they are IP addresses then they will change everytime DHCP assigns new IP addresses to your clients. If your clients don't reboot their machines then the old IP address information will still be in the copier. If the destination is a computer name you either need to get a local DNS server involved or update the DNS ip's in your web page.

Scanner doesn't send to PC

I dont work on Sharp machines but this may help

If a PC or network is running DHCP it means the IP addresses are on a short lease and are called Dynamic IP addresses.
If DHCP is turned off then your PC's are running Static IP addresses which means that they will not change.
Ok...if you are running dynamic IP addresses your scan to PC destination will have to be the host name of your PC and not an IP address
eg   james.
to find out, do the following
start,contol panel,system,computer name.

hope this helps

Our Kyocera KM2530 has previously been set up to scan to three separate pcs on the network. Nothing has changed yet it will now only scan to one. How can I fix this problem?

the ip address for the other two computers might have changed... you need to go into the scanner via the IP address of the scanner and change the IP address for the scan to pc folders destination list to the new one for both computers... or change the ip address to the pc name... pc name may work... but IP address will...

Scan cannot be performed

I also had the same problem with HP Officejet 6310 and after trying all the solutions that I could find on the web, I was almost giving up. Then I found this on HP's IT Resource Center website (author J.Eqbal) and tried it and finally it scanned without the error message.
This error happens only in Network connections.
Get the Ip address of the Printer and open the EWS page by typing i.e 192.168.x.x.x is the IP address of the Printer.
On the EWS page click on Network and get the host name and copy it.
go to the following location C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc...inside etc you will find the host file open it using notepad.
Underneath local host
there might be the Ip address and host name ..which will be different from the current host name...change the Ip address and host name the file.
Try to will definitely work.

I have the same problem. I used the "Lexmark Imaging Studio" application and clicked on the "Display or Change Network settings" link at the left bottom corner (The words might be different, my installation is in German, so I translate it as I assume it would be in English). I then added my Computer again with a new name to the printer and it worked. Now I actually want to find out how to delete the old entry on the printer, but that is later's problem.

My guess now is that mybe it is because I have a router and use DHCP ip addresses. I am going to give my computer a fixed IP and see if it then always works. Maybe the printer is not able to really resolve the IP address and saves it. Only guessing!

Network connectivity problem...

Most likely issue is no common server on the network to specify which computer has what IP address and associate that with a name. Bob's computer gets a different IP address each time he turns it on, and the same happens with Sally. But Joe's always seems to get the same IP, so everybody can always find Joe. Specifying static IP addresses on all computers is a beginning to solving this, then I would edit the hosts file on each computer to specify that Bob is at IP x.x.x.x, and Sally is x.x.x.x, and Joe is x.x.x.x, copy this hosts file to all computers, and edit it when new computers are added. Another solution would be to get a Windows Server that is doing both the DHCP (Assigning Addresses) and DNS (A computer program running on a server, translating names into IP addresses), all computers will ask the DNS server where Bob is, and get a response from an internal server that says bob is x.x.x.x
The issue you are having is the number one reason to get away from a peer-to-peer network.
