Is the lamp itself working and turning on? If so then it is the optics that actually scan are bad. or the board that controls them. How long have you owned the scanner?

Simply how to use the scanner which does not come with instructions. Many t hanks for your assistance

  • Click Settings > Scan Settings > Button Settings at the bottom of the left pane.

  • Click the Scan Picture Button tab. Under "Scan to" select the program you would like to edit the image with after the scan is finished.
  • Repeat step 2 for the Scan Button, the Scan Document Button and Scan Film Button. Select the program you would like to use to open each type of scan, or select "Save to File" and the desired file type. Select your preferences under the Document or Picture menus based on the type of image or document you will scan most often using this button. Ensure that the "Show Preview" check box is checked for each button type. Click "OK."
  • Place your document or picture on the glass. If scanning film, place the 35 mm negative or slide in the special adapter provided by HP. Select the Scan Picture, Document or Film button depending on what you are scanning. Select the Make Copies button to copy the document or picture directly. Click "Scan" and then "OK" to see the scan preview.
  • Crop your image by clicking the small black boxes at the edges of the selection area. Drag your mouse until the portion of the image you wish to scan is selected. Select the image correction settings in the menu on the right to fix any problems with the picture or document. You may also change the image resolution and resize the image in these menus. When you're finished, click the "Accept" button. If you'd like to scan another image, select "Yes" in the next dialogue box. If not, select "No."

    How do I scan a picture and email it?


    You can start a scan from your computer or from your HP OfficeJet.
    to scan an original from your Windows computer
    1 Load your original either on the glass or in the automatic document feeder
    2 Press Start Scan.
    A scan of the original appears in the HP Preview window.
    3 In the HP Preview, you can edit the scanned image. When you have
    finished, click Accept.

    For more information about making changes to an image during the
    preview, see adjust an image during the preview in scan pictures and
    documents in the HP Photo & Imaging Help for more information.
    The HP OfficeJet does a final scan of the original and sends the image to
    the HP Photo & Imaging Gallery.

    Negative Scanning Problem Using Epson Scan Software

    Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.

    Scanned image only prints in black and white

    it's tricky / annoying:

    you have a preview ...
    you have some of the (3) images checked
    but also you have some of these images selected (blue outline)

    when you select (I don't mean the checking) an image you'll have to set the scanning params
    again - or check them ...

    if you select an image, and then set the params (like "color"), your scanned image will be in color

    also resolution is the same way ..
    especially after crating preview .. it'll be set to 300 Dpi
    so after seecting one for scanning - check the resolution too :)
