You can scan from the computer using hp solution center.look for it's icon on the desktop or on the laptop.double-click on that and it will give you scan options.you scan photos or documents using that program.

if you installed the software cd that came with the printer then you should be able to use solution center

How to scan and send document


Place your document face down on the scanner bed. Press the button that starts the scanning process depending on your scanner or printer.

Save the scanned file to your computer by clicking "File" in the menu bar at the top of the screen, then choose "Save as." Choose the folder in which you wish to save the document from the drop-down menu in the window that popped up during the saving process. Choose a name for the document, then click "Save."


Sign on to your email account, then choose "New" or "Compose" to start a new email message. Click on "Attachments" or "Attach." Wait for a new window to pop up, then choose the file you scanned from the folder where you saved the document.

Wait a few seconds for the file to attach, compose your email message, then click "Send." Your scanned document will now be sent to the recipient's email address.

Hello!
If you are using a Windows XP operating system, I do suggest that you use the Scan Option on the Control Panel.

How?
Click on Start
Click on set Setting, then Select Control Panel
Double click the Scanners and Cameras icon
Double click your printer's icon
Then follow the instruction that will be displayed in your monitor.
At the end, this will save your scanned documents in jpeg files.

Hope this help!

Trying to scan pics on HP Officejet 7110. Press 'Start Scan,; display on printer shows 'Scanning to Microsoft Outlook' for over one minute. I can hear the machine scanning and see the scan light working....


Nothing in or jamming document feeder tray.
Change the setup to scan to a file, rather than email.
Try a different USB port.
Reboot all.
Reinstall printer/scanner drivers and software.

How do i scan documents so I can email them?


just place your paper document in the scanner, cover it, then press the SCAN button in your scanner device. Another way to do it is to open your scanner program installed with your printer. Then make sure to "Scan to File" so that you can save your scanned document to file and attach to emails or whatever.

HOW TO SCAN THE DOCUMENTS IR4570 TO P.C ????


On the device you want to chose the SCAN option and set it to ONLINE.
You then need an application that does TWAIN scanning and aquire image data. Set your scanner device yo "Canon Color Network Scangear".
A freeware product you can use to test is irfanview
You would otherwise need to do an aquire / TWAIN scan from MS Word or Adobe Acrobat (full/pro) or another software that does TWAIN scanning.

Scan to pc


Hi,
There's several ways to do this. I will tell you the easiest, (at least to explain).
1st- scan the document as usual, save it to your documents. ( to do this, look on your desktop for Canon Solutions- if not there it will be in your programs. This will open a box letting you scan from your scanner & save to your PC)
2nd- open an email, address it. Then click on the little icon at the top of your email that looks like a paper clip. This will open a box, just navigate to your documents & click once on the document that you want. This will put it in the email & you're ready to send. If you don't see a paper clip icon then click on 'insert'. This will do the same thing. If this helps plz rate this as 'fixya'. If you need more help leave a comment & I'll be happy to help. Thank you kindly.

I am having trouble scanning a document on the Ricoh Aficio 2018D, I also cannot locate the user manual, can you please advise how to scan on this machine?


If the scanner has not been configured, or network settings have changed, the setup for scanning on this unit is unfortunately quite difficult for a novice. the manuals are readily available at Ricoh.com, under Downloads, but this will not help very much with the scanner config.

Sorry:(

HP ScanJet 5590 automatic feeder not working


Have you tried scanning in the flat bed mode? Does it scan okay? If the image is good, then there is no problem with scan module. Check your page settings. If the page size selected for scanning is smaller than actual size, there can be some peoblems. Try and scan with max size. Check if the sensors are dust/paper free. A small piece of paper (The small round discarded piece from Computer stationery) in the paper sensor can create trouble.
