    I also have this problem.

    I can print in BW and color. I can also Copy in BW and color.

    But when I try to scan it just hangs up. No moving scan light, nothing.

    Computer reports that the A940 thinks it's busy when it's just sitting there.

    I can try to change the "scan to file, email, etc" option but it makes no difference at all.

Sometimes these printers/scanners MUST be plugged directly into the wall outlet to scan..check your user manuals.

Scan all 4 of them in, you can use adobe acrobat to combine them or search for a similar program via google that will combine pdf's, they're out there and they work great!

Scans are too large...


while scanning try reducing the DPI of the scans. this will make the image smaller in size but it will effect the picture quality very little. but do keep in mind that the dpi must be atleast 70 for better picturization

Having a problem with the scan function on my HPC7280


Not too sure on this model, but if there was no options, perhaps the machine has not been set up correctly to scan to a folder or application.
This FAQ/Guide from HP shows you what you need to do to correct set up your printer to make scans.
