    I,too, am new at my company, and have been put in charge of setting up the scanner on our lj 3380, since the scanner was never set up to begin with. I have searched through the manuals & have found only the start & fax manuals.

    I am hoping not to have to uninstall anything, but I am desperately needing help on this quickly!

Scanner will not save large scan over 300 pages

Reduce the scan resolution or breakup the scan job to be saved into multiple documents.
It is likely that you are using 32bits OS or 32 bits office software.

A 64bits OS + 64bits Office 2010/2013 would be able save larger documents.

Scanner Directions

Scanner utility is pretty much come with the software. You can input the paper like you input for fax, either on the top scanner or the scanner itself and then just press scan on your printer. It will automatically scan to your computer. Please make sure your computer is connected to the printer.

Scanner hp psc 1210 all in one printer

Hi there.

As there is no full featured software available of PSC 1210 All-In-One for Windows Vista, we cannot scan from the All-In-One itself.

However, we may utilize the scanning functionality with the Microsoft Paint and Windows Photo Gallery on the computer.

I am providing you a weblink which would help in scanning with above mentioned programs.

Here is the weblink:

Hope this information would be helpful.

With regards,

Hp 3380 scanner issue

Replacing scanner assembly

Honestly it is cheaper to buy a new machine. This is a very common problem withthat model. If you are technically inclined you could try removing the top glass, (not easy) and cleaning all the mirrors as well as the scanner. Many times if the scanner cant find home (because the optics are dirty) it will give you a scanner error message. Also HP has had many issues with this model and the scanner, so you may want to try calling them and see if they will repair it under warranty.
Good luck.
