Hi Sabrina,

My name is Mike and I'm here to help.

HP has a utility that specifically addresses scanning problems on their All-In-One printers.

The following link will bring you to a page describing this utility. Read through it and followit's lead to download and run it.

HP Scan Diagnostic Utility

This option has been quite useful. But it hasn't solved every scan problem.

If it does fail, let me know. We'll make sure you have the latest drivers and troubleshoot the problem from that point.

Hope this helps.

When scanning to computer, tells me it already exists

The scanners can be very trying sometimes. If i'm understanding you correctly it sounds like when you scan a picture it defaults to a specific file name. Try changing the name of the file you are creating for each picture. If I didn't understand your problem correctly please reply for me to help you further.

Try this... 1. Select your settings on the PDE (e.g. select paper type and print quality) 2. On the Presets, just below the printer selection, choose "save as" and name your settings. Everytime you print, choose File, Print then select your custom presets.

How do I scann a document/picture and where does it go once I scan

Usually any scanned document etc will go to a folder in documents & settings so have a look there, another way is to scan and save it as a special name, or simply remeber the default name, and then do a search for that file and when you find it, THATs where they go :)

Usually when ya scan it should ask ya where to save?
