This might be caused by a failing exposure lamp; run a scan with the cover open with an empty table and note whether you can detect any flickering of the light source during the scan.

first clean the inside of the printer as there might be tiny strips of paper that cling to the print head assembly, second open the scanning area and clean the camera as tiny lines came from dust that was being read by the camera as an image.

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

    Lemark X1270 Error: Image Transferring Buffer Overflow


    Hi,

    Please follow the steps given below to scan a document:
    1. Go to "Start," "All Programs," Lexmark printer, "Lexmark All-in-One Center."
    To see how an image will look after it is scanned, click "Preview Now."
    2. Click "Scan," "Send scanned image to".
    If scanning an image, choose a graphics program such as "Lexmark Photo Editor," "MS Paint," etc.
    If you wish to "Scan to OCR," choose a text program such as "MS Word," "WordPad," etc.
    Once the image is scanned, the "Abbyy OCR" software will open automatically.
    3. To begin the scanning process, click "Scan Now."
    4. To view the additional options, click "See More Scan Settings."
    To indicate what type of image is being scanned, select the "Option" next to the type of object you are scanning. Your settings will be optimized for that object type.
    To indicate how the scan will be used, select the relevant option from the menu. Your resolution and other settings will be optimized based on your selection.
    5. To revert back to the normal All-in-One main page, click "Hide Extra Scan Settings."
    6. Under "Display Advanced Scan Settings" you can see change settings, which will affect the outcome of your scan.

    The effecds like 'banding' very often this happens when the ink is running low.

    When you say 'full color' do you mean at the 'best' [i.e. most ink used] setting or the you are printing the image on a full sheet of paper?

    How do your images appear when you print small, say wallet sized, single image only on the page? draft mode? Gray scale?

    Colour printing gives ghost image


    Are you using genuine Brother color cartridges? If you are, then try different paper (20 pound laser printer paper or plain paper copier paper rather than inkjet paper,) Also, do not use recycled paper. If that does not work, you may need a new imaging (OPC belt) unit, or a new fuser assembly. Check your owners manual about when to replace the imaging unit or fuser. It is usually after 60, 000 prints have been run.

    Vertical white lines in scanned image


    Did you try cleaning the little glass strip where the documents go in? Lift the button panel and wipe the glass with rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs or lens paper if you have it. Mine does this sometimes when dust or white out or little bits of paper get stuck on the glass.
    Good luck!

    Trouble printing to photo paper


    The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
