Question about HP LaserJet 2840 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

HP Color Laserjet 2840 will not completely scan legal size docs

I'm using Readiris software to scan documents because the HP scanning software which was the software originally installed with the all-in-one has not worked in quite some time. Anyway, I can scan letter size documents fed through ADF and it reads it perfectly but when I scan a legal size document, two inches of the bottom of the document are not scanned. The settings are correct on the Readiris and in fact I contacted Readiris and they said that it was a machine issue not software. I contacted HP and they said it is designed to scan legal documents. If someone is familiar with the HP Laserjet 2840 and knows how to set it up to scan legal I would greatly appreciate the help. The owners manual does not go into any detail when it pertains to scanning. Thanks for any suggestions.

Copy on HP Laserjet 200 Color MFP


If you just want a single copy of the document, place the page face down on the scanner glass or face up in the document feeder. Then press Copy on the all-in-one (for the M276 this is on the touch screen). If you need to adjust the image quality/size or paper size, press Settings. Then press Image Adjust or scroll down and touch Paper. When done adjusting any setting, press OK. Then press Black or Color depending on your source page.

If you want to scan to a computer first, you'll need to make sure that the full software is installed on that computer. Then launch a scan from the computer before using the touch screen's scan button. You need to set up the default scan options before the scan button works. (There is a monitor program "hears" the button and it needs to know the scan defaults and destinations to launch the appropriate parts of the software.)

Note: many all-ones will not work if there is a problem with the print system.

I hope this helps.

No scanner in HP Color LaserJet 2820 i Windows 7


Apparently HP does not have a compatible HP branded software for this particular scanner. The link below will
take you to HP where they have an FAQ on using the Fax and Scan in Widows 7. If you haven't
already tried this I would suggest giving it a try. The fax and scan wizard in Win 7, while not perfect, is still
pretty functional and allows some different options depending on the material you are scanning. Since Win
7 has been out for awhile now, I would be surprised if there was a software package released at this point.

HP LJ 3030 w/ USB connection to a computer with Windows Vista Home Premium Svc Pack 2. 64-bit Operating System. Problem: When I feed legal size docs through the doc feeder, the scan is letter size. I...


Hello Steve !
The only way scanning Legal documents on this HP LJ 3030 willbe using the ADF ( Automatic Document Feeder) since the size of the flatbed its only for letter.

So, after placing the document on the automatic document feeder theres a few setting you will need to change on the printer.

Number 1 : Go to Main Menu on the printer and look for System Setup, under system set up look for Paper setup,hit ok and now look for "Def. Paper Size" and set it to "Legal"

Number 2 : you should have a button on the printer control panel (Physical printer) that says " Reduce / Enlarge" , hit it and make sure the one selected is "original=100%"

Now just hit "Start Copy" and it print LEGAL ! it worked for me

Hope this help !

HP PRINTER 2840 WONT SCAN TO WINDOWS FAX AND SCAN PROGRAM


well........ first of all it depends on the Operating System on you computer, then starting from there the advice that i can give you it is to fully uninstall the software and then install the software back using the version that is on hp.com
after that when you have the full sw installed you have to set up the scan button on the printer from the twain scan window but that will be a piece of cake. just make sure ot get the software properly installled.

REadiris won't convert pdf to word


Converting a scanned PDF to Word document requires OCR technology, so that it can extract the text out of an image. Not many PDF converter can make it. You can try the online OCR converter called OCRterminal.com, it can convert scanned PDF to Word, 20 pages for free per month. Hope it helps.

Hp 3015 laserjet scanning in vista


Buy something other than HP which doesn't seem to support anything longer than a year. You bought a cheapo machine, disposable after it breaks which it will about the time warranty runs out.

I can't Scan 8 1/2 by 14. It cuts the scan to that of a regular paper. I can fax by 8 1/2 by 14 and it comes out alright. how i do the set up. I used the set up in the scan but it did not help.


I also had problems scanning legal size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. The documents would scan but would not come out complete. A large portion of the text would always be left out and only an image of the size of regular page size would come out. I knew it had to be something with the settings, so after experimenting with my MFC-7440N I came to the conclusion that I was not going to find the solution on the actual machine. I had a "Hunch" that I would find my solution by connecting the printer to my laptop computer and use the software that came with it. After a couple of minutes I was able to scan Legal Size documents in a breeze... I should of done this months ago. All scanned docs came out in full size.

So I took some screen shots to post them up here to let everyone know how to scan legal size documents since I noticed that people are having trouble just like I did. With this instructions you will also be able to scan any available size documents with a Brother MFC-7440N. I will also guide you step by step. After step 4 the remainder steps are OPTIONAL unless you need to change the color or picture file types. Okay, here we go!

Step 1.
Make sure your MFC-7440N is connected to your computer and the computer has the software installed that came with the printer.
Place the Legal Sized documents/papers that you want to scan on the Paper Feeder Scanner located on the most upper area of the machine.

Step 2. On your computer, go to START then to DEVICES and PRINTERS, or CONTROL PANEL then DEVICES and PRINTERS. Locate the icon of your MFC-7440N. If its not your DEFAULT printer make it the default one. Then RIGHT Click on the icon. A menu will pop open. Locate START SCAN and click it.

Step 3. A small window will open that will give you various options to scan a multitude of sizes and different settings. Locate where it says SOURCE. The default setting might be FLATBED meaning the flatbed scanner of your machine. Click the drop down menu and select FEEDER. By selecting the feeder option your computer will tell your machine to use the automatic paper scanner located on the most upper area of your machine.

Step 4. Locate PAPER SIZE. Click on the drop down menu and then select Legal 8.5 x 14 inches (216 x 356mm).
If your documents are already located in the feeder you can now go ahead and click SCAN and your documents will begin to scan.
Your scanned documents will be saved in a file folder in your computer and that file will pop open for your convenience once all documents are scanned.

If you need to change COLOR or Black and White setting plus Picture File Types such as Jpeg or Tiff just click on their respective drop down menu before clicking SCAN.Here are some pictures to help me illustrate it.

I hope you find this helpful.

Thank You!
