Just want to check that you are putting the paper face down.
Then i'd unplug it, turn off your computer, turn on your computer and then plug in the scanner.
Let the computer find the hardware, and if it has its own drivers, let it use them, if not, supply the disc and let it install from there.
Sometimes there is a lock, you must make sure you are not locked. (this is to protect the scanner during shipping.)

The scanner keeps jamming. i try to scan form the document feeder &the papers keep getting stuck. It will not complete a scan!what do i do?


In summary: * Very unintuitive, convoluted and unpleasant to use (same on Win2K as XP) - sometimes the SW hangs during scan and needs a reboot - sometimes the SW crashes with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot - sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf
Advantages: I cannot see any advantages with this product
Disadvantages: Software is convoluted and unreliable, paper jams are difficult to clear

function showHideReviewText( sType ) { if ( sType == 'more' ) { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('less'); }; } else { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('more'); }; } } ...with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot
- sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf every page is blank
- very occasionally it scans a document properly
*If the sheet-feeder jams is says to refer to the documentation to clear it, which doesn't exist. There is no way to clear the jam except to pull hard & hope. No levers to release it like one would expect.
*Frequently has error ...
...cycled to work again.

Everything has to be started by pressing a button on an application called "HP Director". There are 4 apps started from this:
1) Scan Picture
2) Scan Document
3) Make Copies
4) View & Print
also Help
also Settings (which are used in conjunction with settings found in (1) and (2)!)
- Each application has to be exited to return to "HP Director"
its a worst scanner
and prone to jamming problem

I have the same problem with mine; medium format scans are fine but 35mm scans are stretched. The same happens with both the Minolta software and with Vuescan. Has anyone manage to fix this?

Scanner only scans parts of an image over a series of scans, how do I get it to scan the image as a whole?


I had this problem too - then downloaded new drivers and software here:  http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=2613&modelid=9722#DownloadDetailAct

You need to re-install the drivers, then use the MP Toolbox software, and play with the "scan mode"
Good luck!

Cannot save scans (HP F2180 on Windows XP)


Hi,

This happened to me (on XP) when I wasn't logged in as an administrator.

Logging in as an administrator should solve the problem.

PARTIAL IMAGE


Are you getting the full travel of the scan head, then it delivers only part of image? or Is the scan head only going part way. It seems to be a software maladjustment. Uninstall the software and driver Restart the computer and reinstall the software Then come back
