Question about HP PSC1410 Printer

1 Answer

Scaned documents have many black areas even in the preview mode.

I have a HP PCS1410 with windows xp and when I scan a document it looks in preview and also prints out with large black areas. They are along the sides and also down the middle. I have run a diagnostic with no help and also did a test print out and there is no trouble on the printing side. Non-scanned documents print fine. I can't find this issue in the trouble shooting/

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    Hi Elizabeth,

    This is a common complaint.. Are you running Vista, by any chance? The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

    But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

    1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
    2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
    3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie HP Pro L7650) then click import.
    4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

    Hope that helps.
