Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a new Dell Inspiron 6605 running Windows 8 and a Dell v715w printer/scanner. Neither the Windows scan, nor the Dell Home Scan will scan to PDF. I also have Adobe Reader 11.1. It makes no difference how I get into Scan, there is no choice to scan to .pdf. How do you get .PDF as one of the choices?

SOURCE: Can a Samsung SCX-4216F scan to pdf format?

In windows, Scx 4216f comes with Samrthru3 which does not come with pdf scan option , however you can use the newer verasion of smarthru4 which is available with scx4100/scx4521f .
All you need to do is choose Scx4216f as the device in smarthru window. and you will be able to scan in PDF format.

Will be quite simple.

Happy Scanning

SOURCE: I need to scan my

No. You need to scan then convert the .tif into a .pdf. There are many good converters around, some of them freeware or costing around $30 or as shareware. You could do worse than starting your search at the url below.
Good Luck.

Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?

If you installed a windows 7 compatible driver it should work. If the driver you installed is not compatible try running the "troubleshoot compatibility" by by right clicking on the scannner program icon then click on troubleshoot compatibility.

My Dell A810 won't scan. Prints ok, copies ok but won't scan. Have Vista home Premium and a new Dell Inspiron. have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer twice but still won't scan.


Can't remember, but I believe you should have a fault programme which can access to run a self check?

All in one means able to send a "Fax".

If I'm right you have two settings for faxing, either entering doc in to tray or placing on scanner to be copied then faxed.
If so and you are able to fax to anoth er fax number see if you can send fax via your scanner. I'm am trying to find out if your scanner then starts up, strode lights up and copies, least you know important bits are working.

If it does light up, chances are present prog is not vista compat. Go to www.hp.com enter your printer details search it will come up with latest updates and full progs, look for the vista prog. Good Luck.

Dell 810 all in one printer/scanner not scanning


scanning is a bit of a trick. You have to have hardware to scan with, and SOFTWARE to receive images. Make sure the scanners imaging software suite has been installed, OR, you can use the scanner manager in windows to scan with. Just select the dell 810 as the "scanner source" and click "scan". that should do it.

Dell 966 printer wont scan


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work with Vista.

But 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 (ie Dell 966) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

    Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


    For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
    Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
    Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
    For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
