HP Laserjet m5035 blue line when colour scanning to email

Try checking for debris or other on the ADF itself and below on the prism. The ADF cover glass could be spotless, but if there is a speck on the prism itself, this could cause the actual prism to send a line while scanning.

Check to see if not only the ADF is spotless, but the prism below it. If there is something stuck there you could see it.

My HP Photosmart C4280 doesn't give correct colours when scanning

You can usually calibrate your printer. When you first get your printer you may have to run through tests. One of them is where you print out a sheet with multiple colours on it and you then scan it to calibrate the scanner.Scanning will rarely give a perfect representation of the actual photo or image but if you do calibrate it may solve your problems.

Only scanning in colour

Please specify your make & model. By default scanning is always in color, it can be converted to B&W or greyscale by the scanning software being used by you(specially with printer-scanners)

HP F2180 not scanning

I was having the same trouble. All you do is turn the printer on and make sure there is paper in the tray for it to print onto (obviously), then lift the lid (keeping it open) and place the piece of paper you are scanning onto the glass. The side you want to scan needs to be face down in the bottom left hand corner. Then instead of pressing the scan button (which did nothing for me either) press the black or colour button that is above it, depending on whether you want to scan in colour or just black and white. Worked for me! Hope it works for you too.

Scanning error / not enough disc space to create file

Hi again, I Think the reason you cant use Microsoft Scanner and cam's but can use Office Doc scanning, is a setting that is set incorrectly in the other program so it is making bad/too big files, probally something like file type, resolution, colour. Or it could be using wrong scanning device.
