My printer works, but when i scan it says connecting to pc and then nothing happens


Hi Margi!
It probably means that the scanner isn't configured well in the computer. What you should do, while to printer is turned on and connected to the computer is to go to the device manger (right click on "my computer" or "computer", and then go to the tab named "device manager"). go to "universal series bus controllers" and press on the plus sign. you should then have a list, search for "USB composite device" in that list. when you find it, right click on it and then left click on "uninstall" or "remove", approve it (press yes or OK) and after it done, disconnect the usb cable that connects the computer to the printer and restart the computer. only after the computer is booted up completely, you should reconnect the cable. after you do that you should get a pop up that says that new hardware is being installed (or something like that). wait for it to finish and after it says "you new hardware is installed and ready" (should appear near you computer clock), try to scan, it should work fine now. Good luck!

Nothing happens when i press scan button


Nothing will happen unless it's connected to a computer with scanning software running. If you want a copy you press copy and it will scan and make a copy, but if you want to scan you need the software to tell it how to scan, what you're scanning, and how to save the scanned image.

Scanning start problem


You need to have the scanning software running first, I use Picaso that comes with some windows.. You open the scan software and tell it what you are scanning and if it sees the scanner you can scan from the computer. If the software doesn't open when you press the scan button you may not have compatible software on your computer.

I need to know how to scan


make sure the software cd that came with the machine is installed, then turn on the machine and make sure its connected to your computer and your computer is turned on and you are on the desktop, press on the scan button on the machine, scanning should come up on your computer if it doesn't come up then press start, then run, type: mspaint and click OK

in paint, press File and then select from scanner or camera, scan and save your scan to your computer.

Nothing happens when I press the scan button


When you press scan, the unit must be connected to your computer and the computer needs scanning software running, if you want to make a copy you press copy and it will scan and print, in order to scan it needs to know where and how to scan and where to store the image.
