I have just bought a HP Photosmart plus B210 printer. I have installed it ok and it is wireless connected. everything seems ok for printing but when I try to scan to Paint shop Pro 7 or from Word 2003 it...


Hello Carol,

The first thing you want to do is check to make sure the scanner driver is installed properly and working.

If you are running Windows XP or Vista; go to Start Menu \ Control Panel \ Scanners and Cameras
NOTE: For Vista user you must select "classic view" in control panel to see scanners an cameras.

For Windows 7; go to your Start Menu, in the "search programs and files" section (found below "all programs") type in "scan". You will see a result for View Scanners and Cameras.

Now you should see the HP scanner here. If it is not here then you need to reinstall because the scanner was not installed properly. If the scanner is here, right click on it and select Properties. (For Windows 7 you do not have to right click, you will see Properties at the bottom of the window).

In the properties select "test scanner". If this test fails, the driver is not working and you should uninstall and reinstall the HP.

If this test works then the driver is properly installed. HP should have provided you with some sort of scanning software, try scanning using that. You can also try scanning using Windows Fax and scan (for windows 7), Windows Photo Gallery (Windows Vista) or the Windows Scan wizard (Windows XP).

Thanks,

Pat

  1. Click the Windows Vista (c01319360.gif ) icon, click All Programs , and then click Windows Photo Gallery .
  2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .
  3. Click Import , and then click Scan .


Scanning with Paint To scan a document using Paint in Windows Vista , follow these steps:

  2. Click File , and then click Import From Camera or Scanner .

Introduction Some products do not have full scan functionality in Windows Vista. This is because full-featured Vista drivers are not available for all products, especially older products. However, the Windows Vista operating system installed on your computer includes a basic print driver. This driver allows you to scan an original and save it as an image using workaround methods. You cannot use the advanced scanning features that you might have used with your product before you installed Microsoft Windows Vista. Scanning an original and saving it as an image Follow these steps to scan an original document, and then save it as an image. Step one: Load the original Follow these instructions to load the original in the product.
  1. Raise the top cover of the product.

    NOTE: The engraved diagram next to the scanner glass shows exactly where to place the document (usually on the right-front corner or the left-front corner).
  3. Close the scanner lid.
Step two: Workarounds for scanning an original and saving it to the computer Select one of the following three workaround methods to scan an original and save it as an image. Method one: Scan with Windows Photo Gallery
  1. Click the Windows (c01319360.gif ) icon.
  2. Click Programs .
  3. Click Windows Photo Gallery . The program opens in a new window.
  4. Click File , and then click Import from Camera or Scanner .
  5. Click Import .
  6. Click Scan .
