Did you try scanning from your pc? I never use the printer scan button. Most scan buttons won't work without the "print center" program open as the scan always goes to the pc. I mostly use the windows scan program in the control panel. Try this.

Hi
I think you will need to run the cd installer again to install the scanner driver on your printer.

You can check if the driver of the scanner was successfully installed once you view on the Scanners & Cameras inside the Control Panel and see the image of your printer scanner. It means it is connected and ready to be used. If you can not see the icon of the printer scanner there, then, it could not be installed or the printer is attached to other pc in the network.

Remember to use the printer as scanner, it should be attached locally to the pc you are using. Pressing the Scan button in the printer will save the scanned documents in the computer as pdf files.
In order to save the documents as jpeg files, you must need to use the scan option on the Scanners & Cameras inside the Control Panel.

Hope it helps. Just post back if you still have questions.

Barcode scanner won't read printed labels


1. The printhead in your printer might be scratched (evidenced by thin white streaks through your print). This is common, and the most likely cause. Printhead must be replaced.
2. Material might be stuck on your printhead (usually evidenced by wide white streak vertically through print). Printing surface of printhead can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton ball.
3. The ribbon might be wrinkling due to uneven tension, producing intermittent diagonal streaks in your print. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment and/or proper media loading solves ribbon wrinkles.
4. Poor pressure and/or printhead alignment. Evidenced by grainy, light or no print on one side or the other of the media. This is somewhat common, but doesn't fit your description as well as 1 & 2 above. Mechanical adjustment solves printhead pressure and alignment issues.

My HP6110xi All-In-One doesn't want to scan


First, scans and copies don't really use the computer. Can you print a document from your printer. If not, then your problem is within the computer.

If it does print then....

Try using the scan feature within the HP solution center. It works on mine but the scan button on the printer does. Also some art programs have and "ACQUIRE" feature under file to scan with. (Sometimes called TWAIN.)

Hope this helps, so you can start scanning.

good luck

How do I make copies


What do you mean by copies? Like printing 1 page in more than 1 copy?

In the Print dialog box (when you click the File => Print command), You can increase the number of copies to be printed in just one printing.

If your printer is multi-function (one printer that can scan, copy, and print), just place the document to be copied (photocopy) in the scanner tray, cover it and then PRESS the OK. In some models, it is MONO or COLOR under START button group.

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.


Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

Samsung 3160fn


This is a multifunctional unit: it copies, prints, faxes and scans. There are three green buttons listed as "FAX", "COPY" and "SCAN". You need to press COPY if you want to make copies, since the default setting is FAX. The user's manual contained in the CD will show you how to change the default setting to COPY.
