How can I scan my documents?


It depends a bit on the OS and software you have installed and the connection. First, do you have the full software installed, if available for your OS? If you installed a generic OS driver, you should uninstall it and unplug the data cable until after the full software install requests it. Get the software here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=60259& and select your OS. (Newer Windows versions (like Win7) only use the driver in the OS; plug in the USB cable and let Windows Update find the driver.)

Put the document face down on the glass of the scanner or face up in an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Make sure the transport lock is unlocked on scanners with that feature.

If you have the full software installed, then start scans, at first, by launching the software (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Director or double-clicking the icon on the desktop). Then set the scan settings (Settings > Scan Settings and Preferences) - this is where you set the default destination and resolution, among other settings. You will see one setting for Button Settings. Once the button settings are set, if the monitor program is running, you will be able to launch scans from the buttons on the all-in-one. Click on Scan Picture or Scan Document depending on the item to be scanned. Adjust any settings and then press Scan. Check the preview if it comes up and then click Accept.

If the full software is not installed or you do not wish to use that software, you can use programs that are already in Windows or a third-party software. Windows XP, Vista and Win7 all include Paint, Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint, which can acquire scans. Select File > Import from Camera or Scanner > Import from Scanner and then you will be able to scan. Vista and Win7 also include Windows Fax and Scan (Start > All Programs > Windows Fax and Scan). Click New Scan. The Windows Photo Gallery was preinstalled on Vista and is available as a download for Win 7 and can also acquire scans.

If you have problems scanning, try a new USB cable or a different port. If you are using a USB hub or print server, use a direct connection. (Print servers usually don't work for scanners). Scanners require bi-directional communication with the scanner and can fail even if the printer works.

I hope this helps.

I DONT KNOW HOW THE SCANNER WORKS.WHERE TO INSERT THE PICTURE I WANT TO SCAN.


Which device do you have? If it is an all-in-one that does not have an automatic document feeder (ADF), you lift up the scanner cover and place your photo face down on the glass. If there is an ADF, place the document face up in the feeder. (Using the ADF is not recommended for pictures.)

If it is a stand-alone scanner, the cover is more obvious. For single-sheet scanners, check the manual for which side of the document needs to be forward.

Depending on the OS and software installed, you launch your scan program and adjust the resolution and destination and press scan. (If you have an all-in-one, you may need to install the manufacturer's full-featured software first. Otherwise you will only get printing enabled.) If you use a generic OS driver, the buttons on the unit will not trigger the computer responding to the commands.

Set the destinations for scanner buttons in the software before using the unit buttons when using the full-featured software. Check the manual for specific information. The button presses are noticed by a monitoring program. If that isn't running the unit buttons will not work.

I hope this helps.

How do i scan using a HP desktop F380


Deskjet F380 features a scanner within the upper portion of the device. "Scanning" an item describes the electronic process of converting pictures or text to data, then transferring that data to the computer as an image. Scanning an item into the computer is a simple task with the F380, the only limitation is the size of the item,
follow the steps below
Step 1
Turn the unit on by pressing the "On" button located at the top control panel. The control panel is located on the left side of the unit. The "On" button will illuminate to indicate that the unit is receiving power.
  • Step 2 Load the scanner with the item to be scanned. First, lift the lid of the F380 to the upright position to reveal the scanning surface. Place the item to be scanned face down onto the scanning surface. Position the item so that the edge of the item rests squarely against the front left-hand corner of the scanning surface, then close the unit's lid.
  • Step 3 Press the "Scan" button located at the lower left-hand corner of the F350's control panel to start the scan. If necessary, the scanning process can be stopped by pressing the "Cancel" button located just to the left of the "X" on the control panel.
  • Step 4 Save the scanned image to the computer when the scan is complete by clicking the "Accept" button on the window that appears on the computer's monitor.

    Dell 810 all in one printer/scanner not scanning


    scanning is a bit of a trick. You have to have hardware to scan with, and SOFTWARE to receive images. Make sure the scanners imaging software suite has been installed, OR, you can use the scanner manager in windows to scan with. Just select the dell 810 as the "scanner source" and click "scan". that should do it.

    Still looking for Smart-Scan software


    You can program the scan button by going to "Control Panel" and "Scanner's and Camera's.

    Right Click the scanner and go to "Properties"

    Select the "Events" tab

    It should allow you to program your one touch button from here. I just wanna verify that you do have the CX3200 and not a Stylus Scan 2500?

    Scanner Problem


    Perform a clean and "No bloated" installation of the hardware.
    Uninstall ALL the HP printer software, disconnect the PSC and reboot the computer.
    When windows finish to load, connect the PSC again, the new hardware wizard will show up, follow the instructions with the HP Installation disk in the drive.
    IMPORTANT: When a silver sand glass show up in the screen, CANCEL the installation of the HP software (this is by clicking "CANCEL" button or by no accepting the license terms). This will install only the PSC Drivers and nothing else.
    Use a TWAIN compatible program (Windows imaging, photoshop, paint shop pro) and try scanning again.
