Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No longer automatic from scan to PhotoEditor

I've never had a real problem with my A940 until lately. Among the glitches are that once an image has been scanned, it does not automatically open up in Dell PhotoEditor. If I manually open PhotoEditor, there is no image at all, but when I close that program, I'm asked if I want to save the image. If I say "yes", I can't find the phantom image anywhere. I have tried to tweak various features on the printer homepage, as well as double check defaults, but nothing seems to work. Anyone with the same prob?

Have you tried making sure the file association is correct. The file association may have been changed by another program and therefore it will not automatically open. You can select a file the dell has previously scanned and right click and under the file properties select a new file association with the opening program being the Dell Photo Editor program. Hope that helps.

How do i use the scan feature?


Hi Clau Martz
Read your issue. - How you can use the scan feature.
1. You can use the scan feature in this printer.
2. You can place a picture , you want to scan , facing downword on the scanning glass.
3. Close the upper cover.
4. Now open your computer and open the " Solution Center". Solution center is the software which gets installed automatically when we install the printer software.
5. Once you open the solution center, you will see the option for Scan a Document or Scan a Picture.
6. You can click on it and then it will scan that photo for you.
7. The scanned image will get stored by default in " My Documents" under the folder name " My Scans".
8. You can access your scanned image from there.

Thanks & Regards

How do I get it to scan the photo? I can't find a start button HP ScanJet 5300C


You must download the HP ScanJet 5300 C install and user disk for some of the basic functions to work, they are all based on Windows context and program menu. By context, we mean that the installed TWAIN driver will allow other applications to select and scan from this scanner quite easily. So once the correct drivers are downloaded, you will need a photo or scanning software, for example, Adobe Elements, MS Photoeditor, and a favorite everywhere, IRFANview which is free and available on CNET as a download. It supports all manner of import and Twain device scanning and does so with ease and many useful photo tools, too.

Good luck!

When scanning photos, images no longer fill the frame


I discovered that a small strand of hair had attached itself to the white underside of the platen cover near its bottom edge and this was apparently being treated by the scanner as part of the photo to be scanned. Once I removed the hair, scanned photo images are again correctly being optimised in the frame.
