hi my name is scott, what works for me? i shutdown my computer then mthe scanner works sometime that happens on printing, if your scanner is not scanning, but telling to re-aline the lines in scanning, just shutdown the computer.
How are you doing? In order for scanner to work in all multi-functional printers, you must install all functions. While installing printer Sharp Ar165m, it will ask you if you need to install scanner and you must select that box otherwise it will install printer alone. Also there is an option where you are to configure the button keys on scanner function, please configure the buttons while installing. This will allow you to press scanner key on the copier to start scanning without necessarily selecting from the computer otherwise --- will appear and nothing happens. So insert the software CD and remember to select scanning option.
First you have to load the scanner (twain driver). Then load the scanning software. Then plug the printer/scanner into the usb port on the pc. The pc should then recognize the scanner. You might have to turn your pc off then on again to recognize the scanner. Then try to open the scanning software on your pc and put the document on the scanning glass and press the aquire/scan button on the software. Hopefully, that should work.
try to use third party software. i am using this sw and it works fine for me. VueScan, the world's most popular scanner software, is used
extensively by photographers, home users, scanning services and
corporations. VueScan is a scanning program that works with most
high-quality flatbed and film scanners to produce scans that have
excellent color fidelity and color balance. It is very easy to use, and
also has advanced features for restoring faded colors, batch scanning
and other features used by professional photographers.
