SOURCE: Scanner or PC?

Neither is it a prob with the computer nor with the scanner.

 

Let me guess,

either is your usb connection cable longer than 2m or you have connected the usb printer/scanner cable to a usb hub.

 

Do use a cable no longer than a max of 3m and do connect the usb cable directly to the computer usb slot.

SOURCE: I would like to scan a document from my brother

Hi there
There are lots of programs to be had.

You need a program that you can use on your PC with this program you scan it to your PC and then print it out, ok you need a program like art or photo or paint or some thing like this that have a scan in it.

Read more below.
The best program to put on your Pc is what I use and it is Free you, it is called PagePluse SE, you should try it you can do all sort of things with it but there no scan on it, just scan your photos to the your pc with another program witch has scan on it and put them in the SE program and you can do any size you wont and after adding text to it or backgrounds you can send it to the printer and print, an other program I use for scanning from the printer to the PC is called PainShop Pro 7 witch is a old program there newer ones out now but I am happy just using the old one it does the trick.

The Free version is Called PagePluse SE you not need the version 9.

Ok here the link to download the PagePluse SE program and it not a free trial it a free, there is one you can Buy but this is all you need download the free one it just as good.

Click Link = http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/software/pageplus/index.asp

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

How to scan from machine to PC


  • 1. Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.

  • 2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.

  • 3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.

  • 4.Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.

  • 5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.

  • 6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.

  • 7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.

  • 8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.

  • 9. Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

    A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


    If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

    1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

    2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

    2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

    3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

    4. Reboot your pc.

    5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

    6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

    HP L7680 prints fine but during scanning process it starts the scan but after light bar gets to end then it locks up and must restart the printer


    Hi there!
    To check if the issue is with the hardware part of the printer try to make a copy of the same document. if it fail to copy the document it can be with the document or with the scanning mechanism of the printer.
    If you are using the Automatic Document Feeder, make sure that the document is flat because the sensor is sensitive to crumples or folds, try another document to isolate the problem.
    If you are scanning using the flatbed glass make sure that the setting is set to the correct paper size that you are using.
    If after checking all those and you still experience the same issue there is a utility from HP that will recognize where is the issue coming from and it also provide a Fix or a resolution to the problem
    You can download the HP Scanner Diagnostic Utility from this site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=2512009&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
    Just select your Operating System, click Next and select Utility and under it click on HP Scan Diagnostic Utility. Save it on your computer. Once the download is finished click Run and on the utility select your printer model # and click on Diagnose
    ** To check your exact Operating System click Start> right click on Computer/My Computer click properties**
    Hope this helps!

    How do I scan a document? I press scan and it asks me to wait and then nothing happens.


    You didn't mention which machine is it for. Either way scanners need software listening on the computer side to accept scanned images.

    So assuming that there are no hardware (including cables to PC) problems, you should check that proper driver and application software are installed. Re-installing is a good idea.

    Good luck

    pls. vote for better service... Thank you

    Kodak ESP5 AiO Unable to scan to PC. Error code on opening Scanner 2106 Please advise,THANK YOU!


    Please clarify a few things for me so I can help you solve this issue.

    Are you trying to scan from the printer to the computer? (pushing the scan command on the printers keypad to send the signal to the computer)

    OR

    Are you trying to scan from the computer to the printer? (Using the scan options in your software by choosing "start" and then "programs" and opening your printers software to choose the scan option)

    If your scanning from printer to computer (using the printers scan option on the keypad) and your getting an error code, chances are the problem is you have not set up your defaults in the printers menu yet. To scan from printer to computer, the printer needs to know which program you want your document to scan to in your computer. If its a text document, some people choose "Microsoft Word" and the scan fuction sends your item to that program and opens it for viewing on your computer screen.

    There are different programs to use for each type of fax that need to be set up in advance in your printer to be able to scan from printer to computer. Send pictures to a photo editing software and choose the size and resolution you want as "default". Do the same for setting up text documents before you try and use this feature to eliminate the error code.

    To configure your options to scan from printer to pc, push the "menu" button on your printer and use the up and down arrows on the printers keypad to move through the choices. Find the command similar to "scan options" and follow the prompts to set the defaults on handling text documents and pictures and then save your choices by pushing the "ok" button on the printers keypad.

    Try scanning again with your computer turned on and open to the desktop. Push the scan button on the printer and see if it sends the image or document to your computer screen. It should warm up, then scan and show a preview on your screen for you to accept or reject. If this does not happen, please asnwer my questions as listed above and clarify what you see so I can help solve this issue right now.

    I need to scan a document from the printer (HP psc 950) to my PC


    If you are using a Win Xp computer than try to scan using scanners and cameras utility under control panel. Else you can download HP scan drivers and perform scanning. Also 3rd party scan softwares such as photo shop will allow you to  scan.
