Copy Output all black

Janson; does this problem only occur if you're doing copying via the auto feeder, or also if you lay the paper in manually? The auto feeder uses a small glass opening to the front (or left) of the main flatbed scan area; if there is an issue with that area letting in light, an all black page would result. If you get all black with either type of scan, but regular printing still works, then you may have a dead scan element. Try scanning something to your computer or to an email account to see if normal scanning still works.

Why a black image when I scan?

The only things I can think of besides a mechanical failure is that somehow your brightness and contrast settings got messed up or your scan area has been reduced to a black area of the picture. What size are the resulting files that come out all black?

Simply how to use the scanner which does not come with instructions. Many t hanks for your assistance

  • Click Settings > Scan Settings > Button Settings at the bottom of the left pane.

  • Click the Scan Picture Button tab. Under "Scan to" select the program you would like to edit the image with after the scan is finished.
  • Repeat step 2 for the Scan Button, the Scan Document Button and Scan Film Button. Select the program you would like to use to open each type of scan, or select "Save to File" and the desired file type. Select your preferences under the Document or Picture menus based on the type of image or document you will scan most often using this button. Ensure that the "Show Preview" check box is checked for each button type. Click "OK."
  • Place your document or picture on the glass. If scanning film, place the 35 mm negative or slide in the special adapter provided by HP. Select the Scan Picture, Document or Film button depending on what you are scanning. Select the Make Copies button to copy the document or picture directly. Click "Scan" and then "OK" to see the scan preview.
  • Crop your image by clicking the small black boxes at the edges of the selection area. Drag your mouse until the portion of the image you wish to scan is selected. Select the image correction settings in the menu on the right to fix any problems with the picture or document. You may also change the image resolution and resize the image in these menus. When you're finished, click the "Accept" button. If you'd like to scan another image, select "Yes" in the next dialogue box. If not, select "No."

    I am scanning a photo. I have translucent lines running horizontal through the picture before i print it.

    Documents scanned/copied from the document feeder pass over a thin glass area where scanning occurs. Clean this area if sent faxes, copies or scans have black or white vertical lines.
    1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

    2. Wipe the ADF scan area (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.


    3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

    4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

    The scanner warms up and goes through its process but does not transfer picture to screen - comes through a blank white page and then the screen turns black reinstalled the driver and rebooted the computer...

    Most of the scanner software has options to set the scan area. Yours MAY have got set to a tiny area outside the thing you are scanning. So check the options including the scanning resolution. Reinstalling the I/O driver is useless. Re-installing the scanning software itself MIGHT restore the resolution to defaults. If there is a way to restore defaults, try that.
    SOMETIMES re-installing software remembers your old settings, which could be the problem to start with.

    Wide black area top of the screen.

    More than likely it's not the crt. If the picture has "foldover" at the top of where the picture is currently, then more than likely there are bad caps. in the vertical scan circuit. If not, the vertical sizing probably just needs to be adjusted. You will have to get in to the service menu to do that.
