This model will not scan the negatives.

Try the best model for this purpose i.e. HP Photosmart C8180.

Hi, I have Canon Pixma MP270. IS it possible to scan photo negatives and change to colour prints. thanks. Blair


A multi-purpose printer scanner cannot scan negatives or slides.
You need a slide scanner or a flatbed scanner that is capable of scanning negatives and slides. Not all flatbed scanners are capable of scanning slides and negatives.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    My printer works fine using the "print" button on screen and the "copy" button on the computer. When I select the "scan" button on the printer it tells me the USB cable is not connected.


    Check the owner's manual if the scanner requires USB 2.0 to operate correctly. If it does your USB cable needs to be 2.0 specification instead of the original 1.1 specification. That would go for the computer as well.

    If the above comments don't apply uninstall the software for both the printer and scanner; restart the computer; re-install all the software; restart the computer... and it should work unless the scanner part of the printer has a problem.

    Printer and copier work fine- scanner says USB not connected.


    I had this same problem and it is fixable, but not the way you would probably like, though you can still scan with the printer. You just have to open the Paint program and click from scanner or camera, and then choose your printer and click scan preview, and then scan, it works just fine but its a little time consuming.

    HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Will Not Scan


    hi
    i had the exact same problem and i installed and un-installed
    over and over again

    and then it hit me !!!

    why bother ??? , just download a 3rd party scanning software like "VueScan" or any other you find on google and it does the job !!
    it's light, recognize the scanner (C4280) automatically and scan !!

    cheers
