I want to Scan a page on Lexmark X6150. Please guide me how to set the Options and Select buttons. I pressed the start button after pressing the scan button. It does do anything.


Find the "menu" button on your printers keypad and push it. Use the up and down areas on the printers keypad to advance from choice to choice. Find the option that says something similar to "scan settings" . Push the "ok" button or the "enter" button on your printers keypad to open this option. Continue scrolling with the up and down arrows and using the ok or enter keys on your printer and locate the "scan to" choices. Set up your software choice for scanning text documents and pictures. Most people want to open and edit text documents in software like "Microsoft Office" in your computer. Choose a photo editing software installed in your computer to send pictures scanned on your printer to. When these settings are set and saved, turn on both the computer and printer and try scanning from printer to computer again to check and see if the problem is solved. If you experience any other issues, pleas clarify what they are and I will try and help you solve this right now before I leave for work.

How do i scan a document so that i can attach it or save it to a flash drive?


It will depend on if you have the full software installed and want to use that software or another program. Put the document face down on the glass or face up in an Auto-document Feeder.

Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Solution Center). Click Scan Picture or Scan Document and adjust the settings if desired and click OK. Set the scan destination and file type. Then press Scan. If you want to use the buttons on the scanner to launch the scan software on the computer, you need to set up the scan to destinations and settings in the Solution Center first.

WinXP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner), Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery (download from Microsoft for Win7).

I hope this helps.

I cant seem to find a scan option on my epson


Once all of the drivers are downloaded and the printer is connected to your computer, you can initiate a scan of a document two ways.

First, you can select Copy on the printer and it will copy the document placed on the scanner.

Second, you can scan a document to your computer by going to: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint.

When the Paint program opens, (in the upper toolbar) click: 'File' and scroll to 'From Scanner or Camera'. Then, select your device (Epson scanner) and click, 'OK'.

Continue with the prompts and your scan will be imported into the Paint Program. To save your scan, Click, File > Save As > (name your document) and select a folder for your scan to be sent to.

How to scan picture to upload on computer


First, ensure you are connecting the scanner to your computer. I'm assuming USB connection, and that you're using an operating system supported by this device.

Next, install the drivers and software for this device. Those should have come with an installation disc, but if you don't have that disc, you can get them from the PIXMA MP830 support site, here:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804

To scan a single document, place the document:
1. Place the document face down on the platen glass.
2. Open the MP Navigator 2.2 software.
3. Click Scan Photo/Document.
4. Click Document Type drop-down arrow and select the type of document to be scanned. Chose from the following types.
  • Color Document(Simplex): Select this to scan one side of color documents.
  • Color Document(Duplex): Select this to scan both sides of color documents.
  • B/W Document(Simplex): Select this to scan one side of monochrome documents.
  • B/W Document(Duplex): Select this to scan both sides of monochrome documents.
  • Text(Simplex): Select this to scan one side of text documents.
  • Text(Duplex): Select this to scan both sides of text documents.
5. Click 'Specify' and set the preferences as required. Click here for detailed information

6. After making the setting changes, click 'Scan'

7. Click 'Save to PC' or 'Save as PDF file'. Save to PC is displayed when an image is captured with Scan Photo/Document or Batch Scanning


The directions for Batch Scanning, or using the ADF to scan, are shown below.
  1. Place the document(s) in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).
    1. To scan using the ADF, remove any documents from the platen glass.
    2. Open the document tray.

      mp830_documenttrayopened.jpg
    3. Insert the documents face-up in the ADF and then adjust the document guides.

      mp830_adfguides.jpg
      Note:
      When scanning using the ADF, the documents will automatically feed.


  2. On the Windows desktop, double-click 'MP Navigator 2.2'.
    1. Alternatively, on the Windows taskbar, click 'Start', point to '(All) Programs', 'Canon', then 'MP Navigator 2.2'.
    2. Then click 'MP Navigator 2.2'. MP Navigator opens.

  3. Click 'Batch Scanning'.

  6. After making the setting changes, click 'Scan'.

I have the officejet 6310 but cant use the scan feature, how do I get it to work


this is how you use the scanning features of your printer.
To use the scan features, the HP all-in-one and computer must be connected and turned on. The HP all-in-one software must also be installed and running on the computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP all-in-one software is running, look for the HP all-in-one icon in the system tray at the lower-right side of the screen, near the time.
NOTE: Closing the HP Windows system tray icon can cause the HP all-in-one to lose some of its scan functionality and result in the No Connection error message. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting the computer or by starting the HP Image Zone software.
For information about how to scan from the computer, and how to adjust, resize, rotate, crop, and sharpen scans, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help that came with the software.
Scan an original
Follow these steps if the HP all-in-one is directly connected to a computer through a USB cable.

1.
Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.
2.
In the Scan area, press Scan To . The Scan To menu appears, listing destinations, including applications, for anything that is scanned. The default destination is whichever one was selected the last time this menu was used.
3.
To select an application to receive the scan, use the arrow buttons to highlight it and then press OK or Start Scan . A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Scan window on the computer.
4.
Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When finished, click Accept . The HP all-in-one sends the scan to the selected application.

Send a scan to an HP Instant Share destination
Follow these steps if the HP all-in-one is directly connected to a computer through a USB cable.

1.
Load the original face down on the right-front corner of the glass or, if using the document feeder tray, in the document tray.
2.
Press Scan To on the control panel of the HP all-in-one. The Scan To menu displays.
3.
Use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow buttons to highlight HP Instant Share .
4.
Press OK or Start Scan to select the destination and scan the image. The image is scanned and sent to the selected destination.
NOTE: If an original is detected in the automatic document feeder, one or more pages are scanned. If no original is detected in the automatic document feeder, a single page is scanned from the scanner bed.
NOTE: For Windows users, the HP Image Zone software opens on the computer, and the HP Instant Share tab displays. A thumbnail of the scanned image will display in the Selection Tray. For more information on the HP Image Zone, see the onscreen HP Image Zone Help that came with the software.

Stop scanning
To stop scanning, press Cancel on the control panel.

I cant scan, but I can print?


hi,

I understand that your mean issue is that "you cant scan", however, for me to assist you better, I just want to know how did you scan? and what did you use? there are actually two ways on how to scan. Also, what is the operating system of your computer?
1. Scanning using the buttom from the printer.
2. Scanning using the SOlution Center installed on your computer.

Meanwhile, ill just post a troubleshooting steps inorder for you to follow.

SOLUTION: SCANNING FROM THE PRINTER BUTTON.

Intro:
Scanning using the printer button without adding the destination list would somehow give you error message "NO SCAN OPTIONS", inorder to resolve that issue,copy and paste this link to the address bar. (note: just go directly to SOLUTION II (Populate Destination List) using that document.)

For windows Vista:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01391654&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1153481

For windows XP:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01388134&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1153481

Those are the link that normally we followed. It helps a lot, you can jump directly to SOLUTION II (Populate Destination List), make sure that all the options are already added to your control panel printer list.

Please let me know if the document failed to resolve your issue so that i can go ahead and give you another solution.


Thank you so much.
