Hi.

On some printers there is a "save" mode with the purpose of saving
ink or toner that if "on" will result in light printing.

Also see to that the scanner is scanning it with the right light/dark setting so that you know the picture has correct darkness and contrast to start with.

Hope this will help you.

Have a great day..

The scans with my HP 1312 are very light and washed out. Is there a way to change the settings to darken the scans? i can darken the faxing and copying, but can't seem to find how to do darken scans.


Access the seocndary service on the printerand run a scan calibration, hit Setup once, press left arrow and cancel for 2 seconds, release, hit set up again.. that will get you to the secondary service.... just look for scan calibration and run each mode once

Hp laserjet 3055 scans larger than print area


When you place a document for scan, you must select the portion you want to be scanned.

You must also set the resolution which is set to 300 by default, if you want a actual size then set the resolution to 75, which is 3% larger then actual image.

It will reduce size in KB or MB of your image and it will be exact size.

Similarly, when you want to print, you must select option "Exact Fit" and print your document.

Everything will be normal.

Cheers

HP 3055 model scaner problem


Document feeder error means that the printer is expecting you to have a document in the ADF "automatic Document Feeder" on top. If you are having this on the laptop, go into the scanner set up on your laptop, and change the device from document feeder to flatbed. It should work fine. You can also mimic the settings from your desktop to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Scanned documents are very light


I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying
