Question about HP Photosmart Premium C309A All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Why would my scanned images be badly streaked after scanning from my Photosmart Prem Web C309n-s?

First scans after initial powering on the printer are fine, but follow on scans or copies are badly streaked.

The rollers are dirty. Open the printer to see ALL of the rollers and using rubbing alcohol, wipe each down with paper towel being certain you get all around the rolls...the streaks are along the whole paper so it is essential you clean everything.

SOURCE: scanning document leaves streak down right hand side

Backu

Thanks for the tip...the problem is NOT a black line but a wide yellow line on the right side of the paper. It starts out about a quarter of the page in width and diminishes in size to about a half inch in width after many repeated scans.

The glass IS clean , and even when the glass had some smudges here and there, I never had a yellow stripe problem!

Scanner bulb is bright and even the entire length of bulb (no dark areas) so I don't think it is the bulb!

SOURCE: Trying to scan, but keeps on saying "USB not connected"

I had the same problem.  The thing is I was pressing the scan button on the printer and getting the lovely "USB not connected" message.  However, if you open the printer icon in the dock (Mine is "HP Photosmart C4200 series") and click the Scanner button in the upper right hand corner, then click "New Scan," voila!  presto! and all is right with the world again.  
Yes, it is obnoxious that HP made a defective scanner button, and I may download the driver again when I get a chance.  But yay for quick fixes!

SOURCE: Can't scan on HP Photosmart C4380 even tho printing works fine

I am sick and tired of the problems i have with this PSC, but i have found a scanning solution and thought i would share it.

Use Microsoft Paint. It's not the best application in the world, but you can insert a scan from a scanner in the 'file' menu. :0) The scans are not of the best quality, but i'm grateful i can scan at all with this useless PSC.

How do I scan to PDF when it is not a choice on the SCAN Menu on my HP Photosmart C6280 all-in-one printer?


Hey morten. You cannot scan to a PDF file as scans are automatically made into images. You CAN however create a new PDF file using Adobe Acrobat and putting the image on it then saving.

Have fun :)

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

    How do I scan with my HP Photosmart


    You can do this a few different ways.

    If it is wireless you can connect to the machine by going to the IP address that is assigned to it. From there you can use the web interface to scan.

    You can also scan from the LCD and save the scanned image to a USB drive.

    I am sure there is another way to scan if the machine is directly connected by mine is wireless.

    Best of Luck

    Have a HP4180 deskjet printer that also scans. How to get images in the computrer?


    The user manual that came with the printer should explain how to do this.

    See extract below
    Scan an image
    You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One. This section
    explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only.
    To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and
    turned on. The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software
    (Mac) must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
    ● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the
    Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify
    the software is running.
    Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows
    system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan
    functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting
    your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
    ● On a Mac, the software is always running.
    Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart
    Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this
    software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For
    more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.
    To scan to a computer
    1. Load your original print side down in the right front corner of the glass.
    2. Press Start Scan.
    3. Press OK to select the default application to receive the scan, or press to
    select a different application, and then press OK.
    A preview image of the scan appears on your computer, where you can edit it.
    4. Make any edits to the preview image, and then click Accept when you are
    finished.

    There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

    If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.
