You have to configure the scanner utility in the printers software that is installed in your computer in order to use the scan button and send the command from the printer to the computer.

This is completely different then using the scan option by accessing it in your computer and sending the signal to scan from computer to printer.

Lets try using the computer to printer option first as its easier.

Go to "start" on the bottom left side of your computer screen

Slide up to programs and locate your Canon Pixma software and open it.

Choose the "Scan" option and hit "ok". Then just follow the prompts.

If its the first time using the scanner option, the software may ask you to confirm your choices for the default when choosing picture or documents. In general the software already has the default choices that are best for your machine in these areas. So just leave them alone and confirm them to continue on and use your scanner.

If this does not work for you or other issues come up while trying these instructions please clarify them and I will help you until able to scan right now.

I don't know how to work the scanner on my HPpsc1210. The printer works but if I want to scan something I place the item on the scanner bed and push the scan button but nothing happens.


Hi!

You need to connect the scanner into your computer. Its either you use the scanning software from HP or use the scanner wizard of Microsoft. For a start, you can use this article from Microsoft on how to use the Scanner Wizard.

Is this scanner installed onto a Vista computer?

In some cases the scan button may not operate without a memory resident program installed.

It will work by selecting my computer and selecting the scanner on the window. By double clicking on it, it will scan whatever is on the glass.
