Need more information! You should first try to run the troubleshooting program on your scanner. Open *Control Panel then *Scanner or if it's attached to your printer, *Printer then run the troubleshooter.

I bought a new hp computer with Windows 7 OS. My hp Officejet 7310 now will not scan. The HP Solution Center that was downloaded with the HP Officejet All-in-One series Windows 7 driver disc (new, just...


A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

How to scan using an imac


  • Connect a USB or FireWire scanner to the iMac using the scanner cord and the ports on the back of the iMac. Turn the scanner on.

  • Use the CD or DVD that came with the scanner to install any required software drivers. If the manufacturer's instructions indicate the scanner does not require additional drivers, you can skip this step.
  • Put the object you want to scan face-down on the bed of the scanner.
  • Scan the object by pressing the "Scan" button on the scanner. Image Capture will launch automatically and display a low-resolution preview scan.
  • Set up the scan using Image Capture. The settings available will vary depending on the scanner you are using. With most scanners, you can select a specific area of the object to scan, choose a scan profile based on the type of object you are scanning, adjust the color options and set the resolution.
  • Click the "Scan" or "Scan to Folder" button to scan the object. The image will save to the "Pictures" of your home directory if you press "Scan." The image will save to whatever folder you specify if you press "Scan to Folder."

    I need to scan and email a photo. How do I do that? hp officejet 4580


    1. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
    2. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
    3. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
    4. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
    5. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
    6. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.
    7. Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

    Attempt to scan, screen states


    This error occurs because the HP scanner can not communicate with your computer and thus won't scan. In most cases this is simply because you don't have all of the necessary drivers installed.
    1. Insert the software CD into your CD ROM drive. The software installer should automatically start
    2. Install the software and restart your computer when prompted
    3. Try to Scan using the Scan To or Start Scan buttons on your printer

    We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I...


    the only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
    The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
    The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

    Document Type
    Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
    Document Size
    Select the size of document to be scanned.
    Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
    Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
    Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
    Reference See the section below for details.
    Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
    When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

    Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
    When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
    If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
    You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
    Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
    Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
    Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
    Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
    The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
    this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
    Regards, and thank you for using fixya.

    How to scan to email (pdf) for a brother MFC-9840CDW


    Solution #1 has nothing to do with the issue, the thread started asked how to scan a document to email via the mfc-9840cdw, not how to scan a email with antivirus.

    Try opening up ports UDP:54925 on your Windows Firewall and try scanning from your computer instead of scanning directly from the printer to a email address. I tried scanning directly from the printer to send to a email and I get a error report of "poor line condition/out of memory" even though the line is fine.

    I have viruses


    Download free antivirus from here
    Download spybot antispyware from here
    Install them both and run a scan with each one of them, if they do not work, it means the viruses had spread too far, in this case you will have to reinstall system.
    Start first a complete scan with avg antivirus, it will take several hours.
    When finished restart computer and start scan with antispyware.

    Good luck.
