Problem scanning pictures

Hey ive got the photosmart c6280 and im trying to scan pictures and opload them to my computer but ive lost my device documentation that it keeps telling me to look at for troubleshooting. When i go to the scan menu there are only two options either to print or to scan to a memory card but my memory card doesnt fit any of them. Please let me know how i can get a internet connection to my scanner! thanks:-)

    Same problem, have yet to find a solution. I can't figure out how to change any of the settings either and anytime I just push START SCAN, it scans it and asks me if I want to scan anything else or if I'm done, and the scans just disappear.

    How do I scan photos into folders from my HP Photosmart C6280, scanning into my folders I presume was never set up and I assumed it was automatic

  • jeankosowski Dec 15, 2008

    I have a HP Photosmart C6280 All-In-One (Printer,Scanner,Copier). I am unable to scan to my computer as the only two options the scan menu gives me are 1) scan and print; and 2) scan to memory card. I do not have a memory card and would rather not purchase one at this time. My goal is to scan to my computer, but I do not seem to have this option. Can you help?

Check your documents folder under My Scans. I found that my scans were going in there. I had to open them to put them where I wanted them.

I also have the problem of the missing line up upload to my computer. If I restart the computer with the 6280 on the line reappears and I can scan what I want. I have asked HP what the problem is with no real solution. They seemed to think that since it works after restarting the computer that the problem was solved. The option shouldn't disappear from the screen at any time, but I guess I'm stuck with restarting the computer every time the problem comes up. Hope this helps.

How do I scan to PDF when it is not a choice on the SCAN Menu on my HP Photosmart C6280 all-in-one printer?


Hey morten. You cannot scan to a PDF file as scans are automatically made into images. You CAN however create a new PDF file using Adobe Acrobat and putting the image on it then saving.

Have fun :)

For Windows XP
