How to scan picture to upload on computer


First, ensure you are connecting the scanner to your computer. I'm assuming USB connection, and that you're using an operating system supported by this device.

Next, install the drivers and software for this device. Those should have come with an installation disc, but if you don't have that disc, you can get them from the PIXMA MP830 support site, here:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804

To scan a single document, place the document:
1. Place the document face down on the platen glass.
2. Open the MP Navigator 2.2 software.
3. Click Scan Photo/Document.
4. Click Document Type drop-down arrow and select the type of document to be scanned. Chose from the following types.
  • Color Document(Simplex): Select this to scan one side of color documents.
  • Color Document(Duplex): Select this to scan both sides of color documents.
  • B/W Document(Simplex): Select this to scan one side of monochrome documents.

Scan Problem with HP Officejet 6110 All-in-one


Once try to scan from the scanners and camera wizard to check the two way communication between the computer and the all-in-one.

  1. Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.
  2. Click Start .
  3. Click Programs .
  4. Click Accessories .
  5. Click Imaging .
  6. From the Imaging application, click File , and then click Select Device .
  7. Select the HP all-in-one device from the TWAIN source list.
  8. Click File , and then Acquire Image . Imaging for Windows will scan from the all-in-one product using TWAIN software instead of the HP software.
If you are able to scan by performing the above steps then search for the file hpqscnvw.exe and try to scan from there.

If you are not able to scan even from the above steps, once refresh the USB cable and then try to scan again.

if you are able to scan from that file then try to scan from HP Director, if the issue persists then create a shortcut icon for that file and then try to scan else uninstall the software and reinstall.
