Scan document error


This is typically a software issue and has nothing to do with the scanner itself. Try these steps out and see if it helps.
  • At the Control Panel go to "Find and Fix Problems" under System and Security
  • Next, under Programs select "Run Programs made for previous versions of Windows"
  • A box will appear (Program Compatibility). Press the "Next." It will begin to detect programs that may have compatibility problems with windows.
  • Scroll down and select your scanning software, then select "Next"
  • Select "Fix Using Recommended Settings". It will next prompt you to test their recommended setting by starting the program. Select "start the Program"
  • If the test works, it will ask you to save the new settings.

I want to be able to scan photos on to facebook but dont know how


The Lexmark X2670 printer does not have the capability of scanning photos directly to Facebook. However, you can scan your photos to your computer and save the scanned file. Then post the saved file to your Facebook account.
  1. Open the top cover, and then load an original document facedown on the scanner glass.
  2. Close the top cover to avoid dark edges on the scanned image.
  3. Make sure that the printer is connected to a computer, and that both the printer and the computer are on.
  4. From the printer control panel, press the Scan button.
  5. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
After saving the file, open your Facebook account and post your saved photos.

How to scan photo to save on computer ?


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Pictures to scan
  • Computer
  • Scanner
  1. Step 1 ** Prep your photos **

    What we're going to do here is take all your photos and put them onto one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.

    So take some tape and put it on the BACK of a photo. Then put that photo on the 8 1/2 x 11. You want to do it on the back so it won't ruin your original.

    Then repeat this for the other photos you've got. And make sure you leave some space between the photos. This is so they don't get stuck together or overlap.

    If you have lots and lots of photos that won't fit on one page, then use multiple pages to hold them. In other word, put as many as you can on a page.
  2. Step 2 ** Preparing to scan**

    Now that you've got your photos on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, it's time to put it onto the scanner. And be careful when holding the paper so your photos don't all fall off.

    Now carefully lay the paper with the photos facing DOWN on the glass of your scanner. And it doesn't matter if you're using a flatbed scanner or one of those combo printer/scanner/fax machines.

    TIP #1: I suggest making sure your glass is clean and free of streaks beforehand. Otherwise, you may see lines or distortions when the photos are scanned.

    TIP #2: Do NOT feed the paper through the sheet feeder if you have one. This may jam the feeder or damange your photos. So make sure you only lay the paper on the glass!
  3. Step 3 ** Ready to scan **

    The only thing left to do now is actually scan your photos. Now depending on your scanner software, you may be able to scan a specific area.

    In other words, many scanning software programs allow you to select the region or area of the paper you want to scan. If so, then I suggest you use this to crop your image around a specific picture. This will make the process easier.

    When you've done this, scan it! Once it's on your computer, you can edit it to make it ligher, sharper, etc. Or save it as is. Then you'd repeat this process for the next picture.

    If your software won't allow you to scan a specific area, then you'll need to scan the entire page. Do it! Once the image is on your computer, then you can use editing software to copy a specific portion to a new file. This is what you'll need to do to get individual photos.

    As an alternative, you could crop the one you just scanned and then save it. Then rescan the whole page again and crop it to the next picture. Both ways work the same, so is your choice which way to go.
Hope it will help you :)

Once you turn the scanner on, select scan document, the page(s) will scan, go to the file designated, then when you try scanning again it says that the scanner is busy. Pressing the ok button then says...


this could be down to the scanner connection not being set properly go to the scanner settings check that the port or connection is set to usb if connected directly to computer or if you are using parrallel port set to this the reason you are getting a hang is the document is being saved and then trying to connect to computer or printer and it cant communicate so the docs go no where by turning off you reset it again... good luck A

SCANNING PHOTOS INTO MY COMPUTER - INTO WINDOWS PHOTO GALERY,


Hi,
Does your computer have Windows XP installed? If it has and you use the installation disk that came with your HP 2355 All-in-One you should be able to easily scan and save the photos to My Pictures.
After installing the features put a photo in the printer, go into My Pictures and you should get a message at the top of the menu on the left of the screen saying 'Get Pictures from camera or scanner'.
Clicking this brings up a screen which leads you through the Scanner and Camera Wizard for HP PSC 2350 Series.
I have scanned and saved many photos using this facility.
Hope this helps
