Scanning problems When I scan a picture it comes out pixeled.  I don't know why.  I had to download the drivers from the website because my computer got a virus and had to be whipped. Thanks, Liz

The following came from HP's site. I have also included a direct link for troubleshooting to your model if the following does not help at the very end of this post.
Hope this helps!! :)
Scanned image quality is poor

  • A dirty scanner glass (fingerprints or smudges) will slow down performance and will affect scan quality because the unit is scanning the smudges on the glass. Turn off the unit and clean the glass with a soft cloth or sponge slightly moistened with a non-abrasive glass cleaner.
  • Reinitialize the scanner by shutting down the HP all-in-one and then unplugging the power cord. Make sure that all originals are removed and that the scanner glass is clean. When the power is reconnected and the HP all-in-one is turned on, the scanner will recalibrate.
  • The video driver and video settings on the computer may slightly change the image appearance. The HP all-in-one scans in 24-bit color. Setting the video display settings to less than 24 bit or 24 million colors will result in a loss of color information when displayed on the computer monitor. The video driver itself may change the appearance of colors when viewed on the monitor.
  • Changing the image size will affect how the scan appears. Resizing the scan may make the image fuzzy. Resize the image in the destination or make the original smaller.
  • When scanning an image, save it to a different file format. For instance, save it as a JPEG or TIFF file. When saving a scan as a JPEG, there is often an adjustable quality or compression setting. If the scan is to be used in Windows (such as in a screen saver or for wallpaper), the scan must be saved as a Windows bitmap (.BMP).
  • The destination can represent colors differently than they appear in the original. If the destination is the image editor, modify the colors in the image editor.
  • Make a copy with the same quality settings. If the copy looks better than the scan, the imaging software may be affecting the scan quality. For example, Adobe PhotoDeluxe supports printing at 300 x 300 dpi only, even though the all-in-one product is capable of 600 x 600 dpi. Some versions of Adobe Acrobat change images to either 75 or 150 dpi, depending on the version.
  • Some image editors also convert the file into their own format or use a different default format resulting in loss of quality during the conversion process.

How do I reduce scan file size when the resolution is already 200 dpi?


An 8.5 inch wide document scanned at 200 dpi gives you an image that is 1700 pixels wide. This is almost enough to fill a fullHD TV screen at native resolution (1920 pixels wide) which is unnecessary detail. I would use any picture editing programme (many free ones available) to reduce the overall pixel width of your already scanned images by 50 percent. This will automatically reduce the 1MB image to 250k. If you can scan again, use 100 dpi to scan - the result is same; image will be half as wide (and long), and picture file size one quarter of the 200 dpi scan.

I am trying to scan a doc, but don't know how to set up the scanner. I am running MS office 2007 on XP- OS


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software (used for scanning documents for editing) is installed on your computer. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. No downloadable driver is available in the Lexmark website. Just insert the install disc into your hard drive to install the additional software on your computer.

Used x4270 .no cd to download. list of printers does not inclued 4270. having problems with error 1200. took out old cartlidge and don't know how to put them back. have printer connected to computer...


Try to fix the 1200 error first. The error indicates that the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please refer to this article to fix the problem: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One. Once your cartridge carrier is functioning properl, re-insert your cartridges - How to Install Ink Cartridges In Lexmark X4200 Series AIO.

You can download the Lexmark X4270 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/gKXn7F. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

For your scanning concern, especially when scanning documents, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software to do the job. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have an Agfa snapscan e20 and would like to use it from my Macbook. The scanner is an old thing. Is this possible and can you give me software to download? Thanks


First thing you should do is after you have connected the scanner to your computer, go to Finder, navigate to Applications and then double-click on the "Image Capture" icon. Press the "Scan" button on your scanner. The Image Capture application will recognize the connected scanner and will display a preview of the picture. Select any special options you want for the scanned picture and click "Scan" in the lower-right corner of the preview window. A scanned image of the picture will now be saved to the "Pictures" section of your user folder. I am advising you to try this as your MAC OS might recognize the scanner without the drivers.

If that doesn't work, try the drivers from Agfa website for SnapScan E20. Website doesn't specify for which MAC OS version they are. In addition, here's a link to th manual.

Scanning problem with Epson/Perfection 4490. Husband scanned something at 3600 dpi and can't reset size. Think pixel levels are too high now to scan and submit pix on ebay and also image that shows up on...


It sounds like your husband chose full scan mode in Epson Scan, the software that comes with the scanner.
To change this:
1. In the top right corner, change the mode to Professional Mode.
2. In the dialog box you will see a resolution selection area.
3. Change the resolution to 300 dpi for Web/Ebay pictures.

Another solution is to change the pictures using a program called Irfanview. It is free. You can open a picture and under the menu item Image, slect Resize. The pixel size of 640 width is good for Ebay.is program.

Need to get scanned photos to between 300 and 600 dpi


What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.
