This suggests the the 'copy' element of the software is not VISTA compatible. In VISTA help in my computer - check out the 'compatibility' options and select an operating system that the copy function did work under

My scanner just started smearing the first page of a duplex to pdf but when I scan just front of document it doesn't smear it


Your question is not clear.

Sometimes using technical jargon makes it harder for people to understand each other (this applies to both askers and answerers).

I always advise askers to use normal language as much as possible and answerers to do the same and where jargon is unavoidable, to explain as they go along.

Please post again to clarify what you mean by "..a duplex to pdf..", in normal language not in technical jargon.

A PDF is not a real, physical document. It is a digital document on a computer or a webpage created in PDF format.

A Duplex document is a real document, printed on both sides of each sheet of paper.

If you are trying to scan a multiple page Duplex Document using the Sheet Feeder of your scanner, the ink on the reverse side may be getting caught up in, affecting and/or staining one of the rollers in the Sheet Feeder.

The bottom roller in most non-industrial Scanner Sheet Feeders expects to touch only the plain reverse side of a sheet of paper as it is passed through and turned over to rest on the Platten (scanning surface) of the scanner ready to be scanned.

Multifunction printers with built in scanners and sheet feeders and duplex printing capability are designed in a way that makes them more forgiving of dealing with duplex printed paper.

Duplex printing printed in a laser printer is less likely to cause a problem as long as it is allowed to dry thoroughly. Inkjet printing that is allowed to drry thoroughly should also be okay.

If the scanning is being attempted very soon after printing, then the wetness of the printing may be the problem.

Sheet Feeders that handle duplex printed sheets invariably become stained and need periodic cleaning.

If the document is not too long, you may have to scan it manually, page-by-page.

If the document exists as a PDF somewhere on your computer or on the internet, then it is unclear why you would need to scan it. This is why your question is puzzling.

Post a further comment, if this answer does not help you solve the problem.

I hope this helps.

Not printing from Smart Panel option

Because they can't talk directly to each other. Kind of like the scanner is speaking in German and the printer is Spanish....The application used for the scanner is bilingual, therefore the printer can understand what it is supposed to print.

Re : CanoScan N640P/Lexmark Printing Problem.

There could be a setting in your scanner drivers to fix that. It would be under background settings.

The other thing you can do is preview the document first and select the area you want to scan. Then press the scan button again. That way the black background that isn't needed will not print.

Hp scanjet will not copy to print

FROM HP, searched and found after three or four weeks of unresolved solutions .. and that's fixed the problem !!

Solution Follow the steps below:
  1. Click Start , then Printers and Faxes .
  2. Right-click the system default printer and click Properties .
  3. On the General tab, right-click the default printer and click Copy .
  4. Click Cancel to exit.
  5. Click Start and then click Run .
  6. In the Run dialog box, type regedit and click OK . WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Hewlett-Packard cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of the Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. It is strongly recommended that you make a backup copy of the Registry before you edit it. For information about how to edit the Registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" help topics in Regedit32.exe.
  7. In the Registry Editor window, click Edit , then click Find... , and search for the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\hpfccopy .

  10. Click OK and close the Registry Editor.
  11. Press Copy on the scanner. The default printer connected to the system should normally print the scanned document.
Cause This issue occurs when the default printer or the list of printers is not recognized on the hpfccopy function in the Current User section of the Registry.
