I have an hp psc 1210, I have managed to figure out how to print from my comp, but how do I scan things to my computer


Scanning depends on a few things (OS, drivers). Did you install the full-featured software or the generic driver from the OS? (See the HP support site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=90764& for drivers/software.) If you have installed the generic driver and a full software package is available, uninstall the driver, unplug the all-in-one from the computer and install the full software. Then reconnect the data cable.

Place the document to be scanned face down on the glass. (Document feeders need the document face up with the top edge entering the feed first.)

Depending on the setup, you can launch the software from your computer. Double-click on the icon on the desktop or (in Windows) Start > All Programs > HP folder and then click on the HP Director. (Once this software is set up for the scan destinations, if the monitor program is running, you'll be able to press the scanner button on the all-in-one to launch the scan. This is under Settings) Once the program is running, click Scan Picture or Scan Document depending on the item to be scanned. Adjust resolution and other settings as needed - try the default first. Click Scan. If doing a preview scan then click Accept when satisfied with the settings.

If you do not have the full software available for your OS or simply do not want to use that software, you have some alternatives. Windows XP, Vista and 7 all can acquire scans in Paint. (Open the program, then File > From Scanner or Camera) Some versions of Vista and Win7 included Windows Fax and Scan which also acquires the scans (just click New scan). Vista has another program that can acquire scans (Photo Gallery IIRC). Macs may have similar software available. In both cases, third-party software is also available.

If your computer doesn't see the scanner, check the cables. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer so a cable that allows printing can be a problem with the scanner. Try a new cable or plugging in to a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

How to scan with mac


    1. Connect a compatible scanner to your computer. A list of compatible scanners is available in technical document 107203 "Mac OS X 10.2: Scanners Compatible With Image Capture "

    2. Install any necessary software drivers that came with the scanner.

    Note: Not all scanners require the installation of additional software drivers.

    3. Turn on the scanner.

    4. Press the scan button on the scanner. See the documentation that came with the scanner for specific instructions. Image Capture opens automatically and a preview scan appears.

    5. Select the area of the image you want to scan.


    75481_1.jpg

    Figure 1 Preview image with area to be scanned selected

    6. Click Options in the toolbar to adjust settings specific to your scanner.


    75481_2.jpg

    Figure 2 Options icon

    7. Adjust any settings in the drawer that appears.

    8. Click Scan.
The scanned image is saved in your Pictures folder in your home directory and opened in Preview.

Note: These are the default options. They can be changed in the Image Capture toolbar.

Hp officejet 6110xi all in one


I did a search of your product's help pages on HP.com but didn't come up with an exact match for your error message relevant to an Apple Mac OS X. Before offering suggestions, let me make sure I understand the problem.

You have a Word document open on your Mac and you want to insert an image into the document that's on the scanner.

I'm actually not clear as to whether you successfully scanned an image in the first place. If you did scan the image, where did you store it to? Have you tried scanning the image and saving it to your computer? If you can do this successfully, try inserting the image into your Word document from the location on your computer.

If you tried to scan an image and got the error message, then there is a communication problem between your Mac and the printer. Since you can print, the cable connection must be good. If the error message is suggesting that you reinstall the drivers, you can find the instructions for how to do this at the following web page at HP.com:

Installing and Uninstalling Printer Software on your Mac

You may or may not have your original software disc that came with the printer. If you don't or if you need an updated print driver, you can download that software from the following web page, assuming you are running Mac OS X:

Mac OS X Printer Software and Driver Downloads

Occasionally, you can solve errors by installing print drivers that are more recent than those you originally installed when you first got your printer. That's the benefit of downloading the latest drivers from HP.

On the off change you are using Mac OS 9, here's the relevant software download page (the version of the Mac operating system matters):

Mac OS 9 Printer Software and Driver Downloads

If all you want to do is to insert an image into a Word document, you shouldn't need Adobe Photoshop or any other expensive software application. You aren't trying to do any fancy editing of the graphic, just insert a pre-existing image into a document.

I hope some of the above suggestions help. Post back your results and good luck.

HP PSC 1315, scanner and Mac os


To scan documents on Mac OS X using your HP PSC 1315, you need to download HP's "Device Manager" software which is available here : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-41992-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=374572&os=219&lang=en

I just installed the software and am now scanning problem-free.
