Hi,

the black solid line that you were saying, is that vertical or horizontal? But anyways, i just want you to follow these steps...
Step one: Reset the printer

  1. Unplug the all-in-one USB cable from the computer.
  2. Verify the computer and the all-in-one have a three-prong power cord that connects to the power outlet.
  3. Unplug the all-in-one power cord from any power strips or surge protectors, and plug it directly into a wall outlet.
  4. Make a copy or scan, and see if the issue is resolved. If not, proceed to the next step.
Step two: Clean the glass and scanner backing
  1. Turn off the all-in-one.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  4. Raise the lid.
  5. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water.
  6. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting.
  7. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry.

Step three: Try a blank copy
  1. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  2. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one.
  3. Turn the power on.
  4. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass.
  5. Load paper in the paper tray.
  6. Do either of the following:
    • Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job.
    • Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job.
  7. Please let me know if the steps didnt resolve your issue.

Thank you so much...

For the system to work completely; you need the printer driver, scan driver and smarthru4.

Once you install the scan driver (available on Samsung website); the issue will go away.

Also, another trick; instead of using the smart thru - which is kind of awkward, download Picasa 3 and if you have installed the scan driver correctly, you can use Picasa to import the scans by controlling the printer. It also allows for some other tweaks that are not so easy to get to in Smart Thru.

In addition to Picasa you can use several other graphic applications to scan the image.

Good luck.

The scan comes out as a solid black image both in the preview and in the actual scan.


This is a preview from a related model, you must set the profile to photo and the color format of your reference. Hope this helps.

Scan the scan using the scanning software, the printer buttons are useless.
For example in paint shop pro go to file, acquire, TWAIN, get page. The HP Scan software will start and make a preview of the page. Then press scan to get the page on the editing program.

Scanned Items or Copies all print in Solid Black


I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

Color Image Prints in Black and White

Good luck.
