Scanning takes an image on a document on the scanner's platten and converts it to a digital file format stored on your computer.
Copying is scanning + printing.
To copy, you do not need to separately scan first and then print. Just select how many copies you need on the number pad, then press either the Black or the Colour COPY buttons on the scanner (or open the printer's/scanner's software and click on COPY), while it's connected to the computer and the document will automatically be scanned and printed (copied).
Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.
No, if you print or scan, you need always to store the file on a computer, and if you use copy function, you still need the computer, as copy function allowed on this printer is only Colour Copying with PC .
This printer cannot print, scan or copy if it is not connected to a computer.
