You need to either use the software that came with the scanner (if you got any) or if an older scanner that only provided drivers, then, for images, use any photo editing software and look for an Import from button - select TWAIN and your scanner and/or then look for an Acquire button if available - some programs automatically start scanning once you select the scanner, others like PaintShopPro require you to then Acquire the images. Many other photo editing programs just have an Import from scanner option.

You mention a printer as well - is it an all-in-one?? I've an Epson AIO but the software that came with it, allows me to choose whether I want to import the image to the PC or print it out - you may need to check your manual if you have one or search online for info about your model.

(If you want to scan documents try scanning them through Adobe if you have it, or search online for some other text importing type software programs that are free and will work quite well.) Hope that helps? Romayne

I am trying to scan a picture onto my computer


1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer.
2. Double click on the " HP Photo Imaging Director " icon on your desktop, it was placed there
when the printer was installed on your computer. A screen will appear which will show the
scanning options of your printer. Do not make a selection at this time.
3. Place your picture on the glass top scanning surface and lower the lid.
4. Click on " Scan Picture " from the director screen.The scanner will make one pass and allow
you to look at the result, it will then make another pass, completing your scanning operation.
5. Your picture can be viewed on HP Photo Gallery and " My Pictures " folder.
Have a Nice Day.

It seems that scanner glass is not glowing or may be bulb are not moving properly.
you can try these thigs:
1)Turn ON the printer unplug the powe cable from the back of the unit; wait for 30secs; replug the power cable.
2) Try this to check teh funtionality of hardware Load letter or A4, unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  1. Press and hold the Cancel (c01235250.gif ) and the Start Copy Color buttons at the same time.
  2. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.
3) Now check if its copying or not?
It will work fine(if your printer scanner glass is fine)

You can also try scanning from computer(if installed)
the location of file would be=
c:\program files\hp\digital imaging\bin
here locate for file "hpqscnvw" hit it and try to scan
Best of luck

MP 160 Cannon Printer Won't Scan


try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd that came from your printer.

Sleepy Scanner?


try using windows driver first, so that we will knowif there is a problem with your scanners driver.

Open paint and click on file and click on from scanners and camera and let me know if it will give you an option to scan from that app or if you will get an error message.
