There are two ways to make your printer scan.

You can tell it to scan by pressing the keys on the front of the printer

OR

You can tell it to scan by using the software that came with your printer that is installed in your computer.

Your error message is saying that you are trying to scan by pressing the button on your printer and you have not set up this option yet. It is saying to check your documentation for instructions on how to set up this option if you wish to use it or try scanning using the software in your computer instead.

Go ahead and press "ok", if you have not done so already to clear the print que.

Then what I need to know from you is which option above do you want to use to initiate a scan from your printer?

In order to scan using the keys on your printer, you need to have an application (software) installed on your computer that it can recognize and send the image to. The printer will send the image to just about any graphics or photo editing software and others like Microsoft Word, or the photosmart software that came on your driver disk.

Make sure you have one or more of the above software titles installed on your computer, then press the "scan" button on the printer. The first time you set it up, you will see a message that says something similar to "gathering applications list" please wait. That means that your printer is connecting to your computer and checking for software that it recognizes and will scan to. Once a program is located it will then ask you where you want to send the image to and give you a list of acceptable applications it found installed. You use the up and down arrow keys on the printers keyboard to scroll the list until you see the one you wish to use then press the "ok" or "enter" key. Then just follow the prompts on your printers display and it will scan and send the image to your computer screen.

Using the keys on the printer is tougher to learn then scanning through the software on your pc.

If you want to try scanning by using the software, follow these instructions below:

Install the software that came with your printer on the driver installation disk. If you don't have the software or disk you can download a copy of the program from HP's website (http://www.hp.com). Look for downloads and then enter your printer make and model and follow the instructions to download and install on your pc.

Once the software is installed, turn on your printer and insert the document or photo you want to scan. Then open the program on your pc and click on the "scan" option (choose scan document, or scan picture or scan mixed ect.).

The pc will send the scan command to your printer, it will warm up and then send a copy of the image to your computer screen and ask if it is acceptable. If it is, choose "accept" and it will save a copy of the image file on your computer and stop. Double click on the image to open it for editing ect. Once you are happy with the finished product, click on "file" and then choose "save as" and pick a place that you will remember for easy locating then name the image and close it.

If you have any questions or encounter problems with the instructions above, just come back to this question and send me your concers through the "comment" section and I will help you solve this.



Click on the "Scan" option

SOURCE: Canon MX330 - trying to use ADF. No doc inside on

Canon Pixma MX330, ADF error, Code : 2,103,0
Here's what I found. There were no stuck gears or pieces of plastic caught anywhere.
The ****** can still feed paper, except for (consistently) the last page -->error/stuck.
1) In order to CLEAR THE ERROR you need to do two things
a) & b):
a) Press OK, WITH THE HOOD OPEN, with a piece of paper loaded in the ADF, being careful to grab the paper manually as it comes out of the bottom of the hood.
b) Windex the strip of glass surface which sits under the ADF next to the platen. This needs to be done with attention to minute detail, and a bright LED flashlight; since ink smudges off of documents and collects on the glass with alarming frequency. The machine may think these smudges are caught/jammed paper.
2) In order to SCAN a stack of paper, add one blank sheet to the bottom of your document. This page will be the one that
fails to clear the ADF, generates an error, and must be manually cleared before the next job.
The rest of your pages will have already scanned.

I want to scan my document through 3 in one canno MP530, so I load my document in the document tray and press scan button. Bu \t it not respond, so please assit. Thank


Put your document in the feeder on the top or open the hood to put it on the glass. Then press scan and start or "ok" to get the process started. Watch the digital read out on the printer when you press commands.

There are two ways to scan using an all in one printer. One way is requesting the scan by using the software inside the computer. To do that, open the software that came with your printer and click on the scan option, then follow the prompts. Using this method requests the scan from the pc to the printer.

The second way to scan is using the controls on the printer itself to send the scan to the pc. Using this method is a little harder and more complicated then the above stated. When you press scan and then ok or start, the printer might need to search for compatible programs to send your scan to. if this is the case, then you will have to choose from the programs that it retrieves and displays in order to make it happen. if the printer does not automatically locate a compatible program installed on your pc to send your image to, then the scan request cannot be completed and it will error out.

How do it get it to scan from my printer to my computer. It says "Scan Error. Try scan from computer or see documentation. Press OK I did and it just shows the three options. Please help TY


Generally there are two ways to scan.
1. Your printer has a management program which controls most operations. On a Lexmark, it is the Lexmark Imaging Studio. Select scan there.

2. Your document software, Word, Photoshop, etc, can start the scanner. Usually under File, look for Acquire....Import....Twain.... Your printer/scanner should be listed. Select and start scanning.

If all this fails, you may be missing a driver, get them from your printers MFG web site.

good luck
