I have a Epson cx11 and get a black vertical line down the middle of scans and copies


Check your flat bed and Document feeder scanning glass need to be clean, if any dot or dust in scanning glass of document feeder it will appear a line, check this points first
1- Check printouts from computer or FAX if it is clean problem in scanning section
2- Check using Copying a blank paper using only Flatbed if it prints without any line its problem from document feeder Scanning glass
So solution is clean the Document feeder scanning glass using wet cloth, note careful about wet cloth switch off the machine and clean it

How do I set up the scanner on my HP J3680?


use the CD that came with the printer.it has the full feature software that will enable the printing and scanning capability of the printer.
- insert the disk in the CD-ROM drive - hit install - reminder:do not plug in the USB cable yet unless you are prompted by the installer to do so - after installing the software , make a test print to prove the functionality of the printer. - then we move on to test the scanner -there are two ways to make a scan: 1. click on the solution center icon on the desktop. 2. in the solution center , there are two buttons for scanning: scan pictures and scan document 3. scanned documents are saved under the MY SCANS folder. file path is : my documents or simply documents---->MY SCANS 4.for scanned pictures file path is
my pictures or simply pictures---->MY SCANS

When I scan to printer the page comes out with short lines down 1 side


If your printer has both an automatic document feeder and a flat glass portion for scanning, try scanning from both. If you only get the lines on one of the scans then that is where your problem is. Most common issue on scanners is a liquid paper, bit of paper, glue, etc on the Automatic document feeder glass. Clean the glass and you should be fine.

I need to scan A document using an epson RX425 printer how do I do it #


It depends somewhat on your OS and the software installed you have installed. With a Automatic Document Feed, the pages need to be face up and the top edge forward in the feeder. On the glass platen, put the documents face down.

Open a TWAIN-compliant scanning application (XP, Vista and Win7 all have Paint which can acquire scans). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan. If you installed other software (such as that which came with the scanner), you would use that - Epson Smart Panel or ArcSoft Photo Impressions. Next open Epson Scan (this doesn't work with the Mac software so look at epson.com for Mac info). This runs the scan (and any specific resolution adjustments you make). It will generally launch when you hit Scan in the application. You can run Epson Scan alone if you do not want to edit the documents right away. Click Start > All Programs > Epson Scan > Epson Scan to use Epson Scan. In the Epson Smart Panel, you would click Scan and Save to start scanning or Scan with Options to adjust the settings prior to scanning.

If the Epson Smart Panel is installed and set up for it (including having a monitor running), you can also initiate scans from the scan button on the unit. Scan problems most often occur when there is a block in two-way communication. Try a new data cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. The cable should be under 6' long for best results.

I hope this helps.

Scanner not scanning right. scans in sections. i need to scan a standard size sheet of paper and it scans it in peices. how do i get it to scan this document correctly


You need to set the scanner to scan a standard size paper (letter or A4) in the Scan Settings dialog. To get there, from the MP Navigator select "Scan Photo/Document", then on the lower left side of the preview area click on the "Specify. ." button. Your Document Size is probably set at "Auto Detect (Multiple Documents)". Change this to the size document you are scanning and click "OK". Now you can preview and scan and not have segmented images.

Partical scanns


HP is having lots of problems with their scan routines. They really tried, but not quite up to what Windows needs...

consider using MS Office document scanning. It really works well. Find it in microsoft Office folder, Tools, folder.

I am having problems scanning from my mfc=420cn. I don't know how to scann to file on windows vista/ or microsoft word. It only lets scann to images


Try setting up the scanner in the scanners and camera control panel.... more than likely you are just hitting the scan button on the printer and it is using the defaults on the printer's installed software and is automatically sending it to your images folder. Maybe some clarification on exactly what you want to do?

If you have office, open microsoft document imaging and acquire the file that way ( acquire scan, and then cut and paste into word)

Blurry Scanning/Copying


Are you scanning both black and white and color the same way? The ADF (automatic document feeder) uses a different scanning area than when you place the document on the scanning glass. If you open the scanner cover, look to the left of the main scanner glass to the narrow strip used for the ADF. Make sure this narrow strip is clean -- no ink or white-out or scratches. This can make your copies look dirty or smudged.
