Yellow Scanning--Trying to scan a color picture

I keep trying to scan a color picture using the webscan function, but at random times the preview and the scan will
(a) have a bright yellow bar in the middle
(b) be ALL bright yellow.

It's not really clear why--it just does it whenever it feels like doing it, apparently.

I saw the error "an error occurred during preview. if the scanner is being used. please wait for it to complete the task.and then click preview" when iam attempting to preview the scanned pictur how c

If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.

Scan color pictures

Does this problem happen when scanning either from the scanner glass or the automatic document feeder? Does this problem happen when scanning either from the computer using the Lexmark software or scanning using the Scan button on the printer operator panel? This will help me understand what might be causing this problem.

I need a step by step guide to scanning a doc that i want to print please

  • hi follow the instructions
  • 1

    Clean the photo you want to scan. If you have canned air handy, blow dust and lint off the surface of the picture (not recommended for fragile photographs).

  • 2

    Fire up your computer and Multi-function printer. Check your connections and look the printer over, cleaning the scanning surface and the underside of the document lid.

  • 3

    Position the photograph face-down on the scanning surface. The alignment of your photo can be corrected in the editing process, but you can save yourself a step if you do this by hand, using the guides on the edges of the scanning area.

  • 4

    Shut the lid. Be careful to not disturb the picture's alignment when closing the lid.

  • 5

    Set the scan resolution. Increasing the dpi (dots per inch) count produces a clearer and sharper image and dramatically increases the file size.

  • 6

    Click the scan button on the software interface or push the button on the face of the printer. A preview of your scan should appear on your computer monitor.

  • 7

    Inspect the preview for any correctible flaws. If you need to start the scan over to fix something that went wrong, remember to label each scan of the same picture with a different name so you can sort through them quickly.

    Choose the best version and save it to your computer's hard drive

    How do you scan an item to the computer

    Use the scan features
    Scanning is the process of converting text and pictures into an electronic format for
    your computer. You can scan just about anything: photos, magazine articles, text
    documents, and even 3D objects, as long as you are careful not to scratch the glass
    on your HP All-in-One.
    You can use the scanning features of your HP All-in-One to do the following:
    ● Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report.
    ● Print business cards and brochures by scanning a logo and using it in your
    publishing software.
    ● Send photos to friends and relatives by scanning your favorite prints and
    including them in e-mail messages.
    ● Create a photographic inventory of your house or office, or archive treasured
    photos in an electronic scrapbook.
    To use the scan features, your HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and
    turned on. The HP All-in-One software must also be installed and running on your
    computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP All-in-One software is running on a
    Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray at the
    lower right side of the screen, near the time. On a Mac, the HP All-in-One software is
    always running.
    Note Closing the HP Windows system tray icon can cause your HP All-in-
    One to lose some of its scan functionality and result in the No Connection
    error message. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting
    your computer or by starting the HP Image Zone software.
    For information on how to scan from the computer, and how to adjust, resize, rotate,
    crop, and sharpen your scans, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help that came with
    your software.
    This chapter contains information on: sending a scan to and from different
    destinations, and adjusting the preview image.
    Scan to an application
    You can scan originals placed on the glass directly from the control panel.
    1. Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.
    2. Press Start Scan on the control panel.
    A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Document Viewer window on
    the computer, where you can edit it.
    For more information on editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image
    Zone Help
    that came with your software.
    3. Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have
    finished, click Accept.
    The HP All-in-One sends the scan to the HP Image Zone software, which
    automatically opens and displays the image.
    User Guide 31
    The HP Image Zone has many tools that you can use to edit your scanned image.
    You can improve the overall image quality by adjusting the brightness, sharpness,
    color tone, or saturation. You can also crop, straighten, rotate, or resize the image.
    When the scanned image looks just the way you want it, you can open it in another
    application, send it through e-mail, save it to a file, or print it. For more
    information on using the HP Image Zone, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help.

    Scanning problem with A940 AIO Dell printer/scanner

      Hi there, just found this solution to work perfectly. i just freaked out for a moment with the same problem. Use this or just type fax and scan in your help function. Hope this helps!

      Before you begin, make sure that you've installed your scanner on the computer and that the scanner is turned on.
    1. Windows Photo Gallery.
    2. Click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
    3. In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click the scanner that you want to use, and then click Import.
    4. In the New Scan dialog box, click the Profile list, and then click Photo. The default settings for scanning a picture are automatically displayed.
    5. If you're using a scanner with a document feeder, click the Paper size list, and then click the size of the picture that you've placed on the scanner or click the size that most closely matches the picture.
    6. Click the Color format list, and then click the color format that you want the scanned file to display.
    7. Click the File type list, and then click the file type that you want to use to save the scanned file.
    8. Click the Resolution (DPI) list, and then click the resolution, in dots per inch, that you want to use.
    9. Adjust the brightness and contrast settings or type the values that you want to use.
    10. To see how the picture will appear when it is scanned, click Preview. If needed, modify the scan settings, and then preview the picture again. Repeat these steps until you're satisfied with the preview results. Some scanners might require you to place the picture in the document feeder each time that you scan.
    11. Click Scan. When the scan is complete, Windows Photo Gallery prompts you to tag the picture so that it's easier to organize or find later.
    12. In the Tag these pictures (optional) list, type a tag name, and then click Import. Windows Photo Gallery displays the picture so you can view, fix, or organize it.
