Question about HP Scanjet G4010 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

PDF file problem

A few days ago (December 27th) I purchased a HP Scanjet G4010 at a Staples outlet in Burlington, Ontario.  Simple enough to install but not as simple to operate.  I followed the instructions to the letter of the text, but, sad to say, I've had some challenges, first of all with the understanding my way around the text.    
My computer:  Mac G5, v. 10.4.11.  New as of three months ago.
My biggest problem seems to be with the Scan to PDF in that it will proceed to copy as instructed (including multiple pages in one package) but they either don't appear on my desktop or any other possible location that I can find.  In other words:  scan copy, add more pages to the initial copy, but not to my desktop. 
Any solutions?  Is there a more elaborate manual available?  Perhaps I'm just missing something in my set up and send procedure.
I would certainly appreciate any help I could get.
I currently have an HP colour printer attached to my system as well.  Could this prove to be in conflict with my scanner?
The catch phrase here is simple:  "Help!"
Thanks.  DE

What is meant by PDF as used in scanning?


PDF is the format in which your scanned document will be saved at. In some cases you have options to save either as PDF, Jpeg depending on your scanner and the scanning software. Hope this helps!

Make sure that the driver for your printer has been installed. There is a CD that comes with this scanner. Make sure to use that and install all necessary software.

How can I get a driver for hp scanjet G4010 for vindows 7


Try these, i find hp forum:
"
1st of all I installed Windows 7 and allowed Windows 7 to install the scanner drivers automatically before I attempted to install the HP software package.
- to do this, make sure the HP G4010 is powered on and the USB is connected to the PC
- Windows 7 will take over and install the drivers
- you can confirm installation by reviewing the "Imaging devices" section of Device Manager and you will see 'HP Scanjet G4010' and driver version 9.0.0.0 from Hewlett-Packard 4/10/2007, the device status should say 'The device is working properly.'
Very basic scanning should be possible even before the complete HP software package is loaded.
Next, retrieve the latest software from HP as below:
.... setup_full_G4000.exe (198,016 kb) ....
Save to your drive, then Right click, choose properties, click tab for 'Compatibility'

Click 'Change settings for all users'
Place checkmark in box next to 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' and then from drop-down choose, Windows Vista (Service Pack 2), click 'Apply', then OK, OK to close all windows.

Now start the installation by "Double clicking" to run install, be patient, it may take a while to begin!
Also, watch the task bar as UAC message box mentioned above may appear behind the active window!
At the UAC message click 'Yes'

Follow on-screen instructions as usual. I used the default install except as noted below . . .
(Personally, I choose the advanced installation so I could uncheck the "HP Photosmart Essential 1.12" since I prefer to use alternate software for this purpose. It should not matter whether you choose to install or not.)
Once installed, open "HP Solution Center"; go to "Help" then click "Check for updates"

Mine prompted for "Latest Version of HP Update, Version 5.2" ... This update has opt-in/out feature for individual updates, Win 7 compatibility, and minor bug fixes.

Click next to download and install. When you get the 'Installation succeeded message, click Finish"
