The default setting for scanning is as a TIFF file. There should be a small icon in your Windows toolbar (bottom right) that looks like a scanner. Select open, select your scanner, then select preference. Middle of the page, set the option to PDF.

There is a button right above the "Start Scan" button that says "Select Software". Use the arrow buttons (located over the Cancel button) to change how the documents are scanned.

After scanning will not bring up on ms office word


Most ikely your scanned document is a GIF, JPG, BMP or even PDF document and not a word document, as for scanning it into word requires special software (OCR software). Try this:
right click on your scanned document and select properties. It should tell you which file type it concerns, which is probably one the options i gave above. If it is an image. try opening the document with a picture viewingprogram such as paint, microsoft pictureviewer or any other picture viewing software. If it is adobe document, you should open it with adobe reader (free availav\ble on the web).

Scanning Problems


I would first make sure that you have latest driver update. MS Word is very particular about how it reads things back in. I would try saving the scan as a text file or PDF instead and then open them in Word. Hope this helps!

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,
