I am trying to scan a document to attach to an e-mail. When I try it tells me to start the scan from the computer. How do you do this?


Firstly check out if the Printer/Scanner driver is install and displayed in My Computer list. If not get the driver CD which comes with the printer or if it is lost download from the website by providing the printer model. Once all is done, click the scanner/printer icon and scan the document and saved it to one of your folder.

Currently,the scanner is trying to pick up documents already saved in the computer.

Every time I scan a document I can't ever find it on my computer to attach as an email. Any suggestions?


Yes, this happens, some obscure folder somewhere.... There are a couple of ways to find: the easiest is to scan a document and SAVE IT IN A FOLDER within your documents folder. Some scans of pictures file in the pictures folder on your system, while documents often scan to a documents sub folder.

If you were to know the filename, you can search for that, and locate the folder location.

How do I dlete scanned items


The scanned items should be stored somewhere on your computer as an image file(JPG, TIF, BMP, or PDF). Typically, when you scan a document you decide where to save the document. Simply browse to where the scanned documents are, right-click on one of the files then click Delete. This should delete the scanned document.

I can't figure out how to scan from the printer and send to the computer to work on document


First, make sure all of the drivers for your printer were downloaded from the CD that came with your printer and make sure your printer is connected to your computer and turned on..

Second, if you are using a Windows PC, Click on:
Start > All programs > Accessories > Paint

Third: When the Paint program opens, in the top toolbar click on, File > From Scanner or Camera > then select your printer by clicking on your printer's icon > then click, OK.

Fourth: Place the document you wish to scan on the glass of the scanner and click on: Scan.

The document will be scanned and automatically sent to the Paint program.

Fifth: Click, File > Save as > (name the document) and save it in your Pictures folder.

You can now close the Paint program and open your Pictures folder. Click on the document you scanned to view it.

I don't know how to scan a document, save it to my computer, work on it and save it again for future use. How do I do that?


You have to install some kind of OCR (optical character recognition) software.
Usualy you will have CD with one of those in the box of your printer, but if you
do not have it, then go to this webpage and download ptogram for OCR.

Basically, OCR program will scan your document, convert it to electronic document
(word, text...) which you can then edit, modify, save and print.

Here is the link to FREE OCR software:
