In the HP print manager, you can go to scan, settings, and decide where and what format those scans become..if you need more help, then you might consider a shared screen service call with me..

My MX870 is working fine. I can print and scan from the PC without any issues. However, I used to be able to scan receipts right from within my Quicken Home and Office software. What's really strange...


If it's viewing them, you should be able to save them to a file (should be doing this) - then uploading them into Quicken. It sounds like what you're saying is you used to be able to scan them directly using Quicken and now you cannot, and are having to use a different program.
Open Quicken and go into the file menu and look for "setup" or "options", "print options" "scan", words like that. There are way for setting, resetting these options, and you will need to locate this. I apolgize, as I am not directly familiar with Quicken itself, but with all other programs that have documenting, printing, and scanning options, they are all basically the same.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I really don't have a problem, I would like to know how to scan photos into my computer and them send them in an email. Could you explain it to me so I can understand it. As you can guess, I'm a...


Hey Helen,
This can be hard or easy depending on which softwre your printer/scanner has loaded.
Firstly, install the software that came with your printer scanner.
Once thats done, you should be able to access the scanners functions either through an icon in the taskbar (bottom right corner of your screen) or by pressing the scan button on the printer.
Once the scanner starts up, it should ask if you want to save the scanned image to your PC or, in some cases, email the image.
Save the image into your "my documents" folder so you can find them later and give the file a name that you can easily associate with the image (like my daughter etc)..
Scanning to email will usually start up outlook or outlook express which is no good if you do not use outlook and use a third party email system like hotmail etc.
So, shut down outlook in this case. otherwise, setup your email as you normally would (receivers email address, subject etc)..
If you use hotmail etc, the procedure is about the same..
Once you are ready to attach the image from your scanner, click on "attach" and select file.
In the dialog box that opens, select browse and navigate to your "my documents " folder if it is not already in that folder. Select the file you scanned and named earlier and click on open or attach.
The file will then upload and appear in the list of attachments once uploading is complete.
Click on send and off it goes..

Im trying to scan photos and ad them to my computer and i dont seem to have the know how can you help


I will list the steps that will allow you to scan your photos.

1. Turn on your computer,let it bootup, then turn on your printer.
2. Locate the "HP Imaging Director" icon on your computer ( placed there when your printer was
installed on your computer), double click it and a screen will appear which shows the scanning
options of your printer.
3. Lift the printer's lid and place a photo on the glass top.
4. Click "Scan Picture" from the scanning menu.
5. The scanning lamp will come on and make one pass under the photo, as this is happening,
your photo will appear on your monitor, allowing you to see the scanning result.
At this time,you can make adjustments, if you wish, to the scanned photo or accept it as is.
6. Click the "Accept" button and the scanning lamp will make a final pass under the photo.
7. The photo can be seen in the HP Photo Gallery or your computer's My Picture folder.

I hope this helps you.
HAPPY SCANNING

You need to find a program that will transform your scanned images into a format that internet websites recognize. You can start by reading the Lexmark manual and learning about formats that it uses for scanning and filename extensions. Then report back about what you found.

HP C6180, File is too large to send after scanning


Hi

You may check the resolution of the scanned picture,lowering down the resolution to some extent will not damage the quality of the scanned image,also it will lower down the file size to great deal and this should help you send the fax without any issues.

try it and get back to me for any assistance

thanks

I would like to know how to scan a document and e-mail it on my HP Office Jet 5610 all-in0-one printer


Hello jzwakman,

HP does make this possible in several different ways. You can scan to OCR software (optical character recognition) or you can scan your document to an image. You may also scan directly to e-mail.

To do this, you will need to become familiar w/ the HP Director Software and w/ managing your scanning from the All-In-One itself.

You can find many helpful links on HP's web site for your All-In-One Machine - including HOW TO'S on scanning. Please, see the links below.

Please, let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Thank you,

Help with scanning on mour Ricoh Aficia 2035.


Since this is a  network printer, you can scan to folder,FTP site or email. alot will depend on your network enviroment. SMB is the simplest. The folder you are scanning to need permission to write to the folder. If you have email you need to enter your smtp server IP address in the user tools and an senders email address. the manuals with the copier will help or download them.
