Ok try this, Uninstall the printer, install the drivers from the cd, follow the directions while installing the drivers and see if that works.
Do NOT connect the printer untill the software tells you to, this is important.

Scan document error


This is typically a software issue and has nothing to do with the scanner itself. Try these steps out and see if it helps.
  • At the Control Panel go to "Find and Fix Problems" under System and Security
  • Next, under Programs select "Run Programs made for previous versions of Windows"
  • A box will appear (Program Compatibility). Press the "Next." It will begin to detect programs that may have compatibility problems with windows.
  • Scroll down and select your scanning software, then select "Next"
  • Select "Fix Using Recommended Settings". It will next prompt you to test their recommended setting by starting the program. Select "start the Program"
  • If the test works, it will ask you to save the new settings.

I try to scan a document and it says that I am not set up on pc. I use just the scan button and it still won't scan. Help please!!!


Verify cables connected properly to the back of the scanner
If the scanner is a parallel port scanner it is likely it has two available connections on the back of the scanner. Verify that the cable coming from the computer is connecting to the IN, Computer IN, computer, or similar connection.
Ensure that the scanner is getting power
If your scanner is not getting power it is recommended that you check the connections ensuring that they are connected properly to the back of the computer and from the scanner to the wall. If you have the scanner connected to a power strip and or surge protector it is temporarily recommended that you connect the scanner directly to the wall.
If the computer scanner is getting power, you should notice the inside light come on when the power is first received by the scanner.
After checking the connections you still get no power to the scanner, it is recommended you contact the manufacturer of the scanner.
Additional parallel port scanner troubleshooting
If you have another device connected in between the scanner and the computer, turn off the computer and temporally disconnect the devices connected to or from the scanner. If, after disconnecting these devices, the scanner works, it is likely that another device may have issues or may be unable to work with other parallel devices.
PC Windows users verify no TSRs are running in the background
Press CTRL + ALT + DEL and end task all currently running software except explorer and systray and attempt to scan again. If this resolves your issue it's a possibility that an application in the background such as a virus utility is preventing your scanner from scanning.
Verify the LPT port mode
PC users ensure that the LPT port mode within the computer BIOS is set to either EPP or bi-directional mode and/or try alternating between these two modes.
Update the drivers
Verify that the latest drivers are installed for the operating system being used on your computer. A listing of computer scanner manufacturers and links to the drivers pages can be found on our scanner drivers page.

How do i upload images from my memory card through my printer to my computer? I've inserted it into the correct spot, I've selected upload to computer, it says its uploading is finished and directions to...


Another way is to purchase a USB memory card reader, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the USB card reader. Then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of your computer, the computer will see it as an external memory card. You can view the contents of the memory card and copy the photo files to the computer.

Kodak AiO 5500 scanning problems.


Hi,
If you are running Vista, 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 (eg Kodak 5500) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
