I also have the same machine and it says in the book using you adf as a flatbed scanner, unfortunatley it does'nt tell you how.
If this machine doesn't do what they say than it should be recalled. after all they''re the ones who claim it does in there manual. very misleading!

How to scan and send document


Place your document face down on the scanner bed. Press the button that starts the scanning process depending on your scanner or printer.

Save the scanned file to your computer by clicking "File" in the menu bar at the top of the screen, then choose "Save as." Choose the folder in which you wish to save the document from the drop-down menu in the window that popped up during the saving process. Choose a name for the document, then click "Save."


Sign on to your email account, then choose "New" or "Compose" to start a new email message. Click on "Attachments" or "Attach." Wait for a new window to pop up, then choose the file you scanned from the folder where you saved the document.

Wait a few seconds for the file to attach, compose your email message, then click "Send." Your scanned document will now be sent to the recipient's email address.

Can I scan a document to PDF?


any scanner, indeed any document, picture format can be saved as pdf. i would suggest first scanning the document as text (for example to words, or openoffice or indeed whatever you use as your document management program) and then port it (sort of print operation) to any free available "translator" program which allow you to save file as pdf. alternatively you can scan your document as jpeg and then save it as pdf, but this tend to produce very messy outlook and results are usually horrible.

How do i scann something and send it as a email?


If you have a Windows operating system on your computer (XP Vista, etc.,) place the document you want to scan on your scanner and turn your scanner on.

Then,go to:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint

1) When the Paint program opens, (on the toolbar at the top of the program) click on, 'File' then scroll down and click on, 'From Scanner or Camera'.

2) Click on the icon for your scanner, then click, 'OK'.

3) Click, 'Scan'.

4) The document will be scanned and imported into the paint program automatically.

5) Then, (again) click on, 'File' (in the toolbar) and select, 'Save As' > (name your document) > select a file on your computer to save the document in (for example: Pictures).

6) Log into your email account.

7) Click, N
'New' or 'Compose' (whichever applies) and compose (type) your email.

8) Then locate the word or option that reads, 'Attachment' (which will usually have a small icon of a paperclip by the side of it) and click on the word 'Attachment'.
(a window will open)

9) Find the button in the window that reads: 'Browse'. Click on the 'Browse' button and locate the file where your scanned document was saved > and click on it. (this should attach the file to your email.)

For large documents and files, if your email provider doesn't allow large documents or files, you can email them with yahoo. After composing your email, look to (your) bottom left of the page you are going to email and click on, 'Attach Large Files'

- you'll have to click, 'Accept the first time' then attach your file and click, 'Send'. That's all there is to it.

How do I scan a document to a e-mail


Here is a link to the users guide to your printer. After it opens go down to the basic scanning section. It will show you how to scan to a file. If it is a document be sure to select the .pdf file type. Also make a note of where it is going to save the file on your computer (most of the time it's My Document > My Scans) So now that you have scanned the file to your computer, open up your email and start a new email. Find where it says "attachement" and click on it. A box will pop open asking you to browse for your file. Just go to where you saved the file and click on the file and hit OK. Your document will be attached to the email.

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.
