Re: HP Deskjet F 4240
Does your home cooking program facilitate IMPORTING a file? look under the pull down file menu and see if you can locate import. If it is there it should open on over and show ou your scanner which you can choose and proceed to scan the recipe. If it does not, You should be able to scan it to word pad , then selcet all> copy and paste it into your recipe program in a new file. Since I don;t know precisely what your program is or how it works, I suspect that the first opetion is your best bet. Look around in your program and look under help in the program to "import" a recipe or file.

Wht must be done is to first uninstall the drivers from your PC and then install once again the software with the PRINTER DETACHED. Connect ONLY when the PROMPT appears and then rrun an alinment of the paper- you need to take a test print and place it on the scan table to make the printer alignment correct.
Please read through the manual to confirm- which can be downloaded from the Hp/support site.
I fixed this by Installing the full suite of programmes on the installation CD, specifically Installing the "OCR Isis" programme (or Iris, not sure).
I had the scan-to-pdf option, but then when I reinstalled my system it was no longer available. I tried updating Adobe Acrobat reader to v9.0 and I don't think this fixed it. But at the same time I installed the "extra" programmes of the HP Installation CD, and then the scan-to-PDF feature was back.
So basically, install the COMPLETE set of programmes on the HP installation CD seemed to fix this.
I have a HP Deskjet F2180 printer, but I suspect that the HP software is generic across alot of its product range.
is your scanner recognized by windows, have you installed it correctly??? if yes then first try to ACQUIRE an image using an imaging program like photoshop or any other image editing program or even the program that came with you hardware,,,,
you will have to calibrate the printer in the beginning (done by scanner, not manual).
I had the same problem with my HP Officejet J5780. I just got it to work with a different paper size.
Don't ask me why this worked, but it did, so I guess that's all that matters.
In Omnipage, I went under the "Tools" menu and clicked on "Options." I then clicked on the tab, "Scanner." I changed the paper size to what I wanted (A 4). I then clicked on "Setup." Despite its recommendations not to do so, I reinstalled my scanner.
After the reinstall, it is now scanning the new paper size.
I hope that I don't have to do this everytime I scan a new paper size...
