The scanner does not scan in the reverse, your software is mirroring it. Check the software settings.

Hey there bigbhoney, I would use your photo editing software, to create a mirror image of the picture or document. Nero will do this as well as windows photo viewer. Your printer probably came with this type of software as well. Good Luck!

Am I able to scan a picture into my computer. I have windows 7, the model is a mfc-5440cnz and do you need ink to do this? thank you for help


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

Also, if you are just scanning, it should not matter what the ink situation is.

How to use my hp photosmart C5280 All in One scanner unsing mac leopard


When you install the Full Feature software for your printer, you receive the HP Photosmart Studio imaging software and the HP Utility printer management software. You can use either of these programs to scan, and can create custom settings in both.

In general, use HP Photosmart Studio to scan pictures if you want to edit them to adjust color, crop, remove red eye, etc. Use HP Utility to set up scan tasks you use often, such as scanning to a certain folder or software application, or attaching the scanned item to an email. If your printer has a display, you also use HP Utility to designate which scan tasks should appear on the printer display menu when you start a scan from the controls on the printer.

Make sure that the printer is connected to the computer. Turn it on. Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass.

Use HP Photosmart Studio to start a scan: Click the HP Photosmart Studio icon in the Dock. Click the Scan button. Select your HP product in the Device Name list, if necessary, and then click Continue. From the Scan Profiles screen, click either Pictures or Documents. Click Profile Settings , and then adjust any settings in the Capture , Adjust , and Page Options (for documents) or Enhance (for pictures) tabs as appropriate. Click Scan. When prompted, select Yes or No to add another page to the scan. The scan preview opens then click Return to close the preview and save the scan. Type a name for the scan in the Save As box. Click the Format drop-down list, select the file format you want, and then click Save.

We have a HP Scanjet 5500c Scanner and when you try to scan a sheet the image scan all black, do you know why that is happening.


s.gif s.gif



See the item is placed correctly on the scanner glass or in the ADF.Make sure that the item you are trying to scan is placed face down onthe glass, or face up in the ADF. Ifyou are using the ADF, there might be a page on the scanner glass.Raise the ADF unit and remove any pages on the scanner glass. If you are using the ADF, the ADF window might need to be replaced.

If that is okay, Please check this link.

When scanning, the scanned page is not readable from a third of the page down to two thirds of the page.


It is important that the item you scan comes in close contact with the scanner glass. If the resulting scanned image is not clear, check to see that the item is in full contact with the scanner glass. The scanner uses optical character recognition (OCR) to convert text on a page to text that you can edit on your computer.
  • If you scan text but cannot edit it, make sure that you make the following selections during scanning:
  • Scanned text might not appear on your computer exactly as it appeared on the original, especially if the original contains faint or smudged text. For example, some characters might be incorrect or missing. As you edit the text, compare the scanned text against the original, and then make corrections as necessary.
  • To change text scanning options, click the Scan Document Settings button in the initial What are you scanning? screen.
  • The OCR software is installed by default when you install the HP Scanning software during scanner setup. If you use the Custom option when installing the software, you can choose not to install the OCR software. Try reinstalling the software using the default install options.
  • Email to jdiaz@coretec.us
  • If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Kodak i260 Scanner


This is practically impossible. This can happen only when the file is over written! Check your software settings. May be you have selected 'multipage' option. Try scanning one page and two pages (same sheet). If the file size is different, then it means two files are scanned.

Reload your Driver and check your scanning software. I am assuming you are usning winXP/Win 2000.
