Why don't you try going to www.kodak.com/go/5100downloads , and there download the Firmware (which is what actually allows your printer to work). It should fix that problem.

Can I scan pictures to my computer?


Yes ... your all-in-one can print, copy and scan.

From:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00737535.pdf

Scan an image

You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.
This section explains how to scan from the control panel of the HP All-in-One only. To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on. The HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) must
also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning.
● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
● On a Mac, the software is always running.
Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.

To save a scan to a memory card
1. Make sure your memory card is inserted into the appropriate slot on the HP All-in- One.
2. Load your original print side down in the right front corner of the glass.
3. Press the Scan Menu button.
4. Press to highlight Scan to Memory Card, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One scans the image and saves the file to the memory card in the JPEG format.

To scan a photo and reprint it
1. Press Reprints.
2. When prompted, load your original photo print side down on the right front corner of the glass, and then do one of the following:
To reprint your original photo using the default print settings
➔ Press Print Photos.
To change print settings before reprinting your original photo
a. Press OK.
Basics Guide 13
HP All-in-One overview
b. Press or to highlight a paper size, and then press OK.
The paper size choices available vary depending on your country/region.
Note Depending on the paper size you choose, you might be prompted to choose a layout for the photos on your pages.
c. When the Fix Faded Original? prompt appears, highlight Yes or No as appropriate, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One scans your original and shows a preview of the photo on the display.
d. Press OK to display the selection menu.
Tip If you want to print more than one copy of the selected photo, press to highlight Copies, and then press OK. Use the arrows to increase or decrease the number of copies.
If you want to edit the photo before printing, press to highlight Edit
Photo, and then press OK.
e. Press to highlight Done, and then press OK.
The Print Summary screen appears.
f. Press or to highlight one of the following options, and then press OK.
Print Options Enables you to manually specify the type of paper on which you are printing and whether you want to print a date and
time stamp on your photo.
By default, the Paper Type is set to Automatic and the
Date Stamp setting is set to Off. If you want, you can
change the defaults of these settings with the Set New
Defaults option.
Print Preview Displays a preview of what your printed page will look like. This enables you to verify your settings before printing and
wasting paper and ink on potential mistakes.
Print Now Prints your photo with the size and layout you selected.
To scan to a computer
1. Load your original print side down in the right front corner of the glass.
2. Press Scan Menu.
3. Press to highlight Scan to Computer, and then press OK.
4. If the HP All-in-One is connected to one or more computers on a network, do the following:
a. Press OK to select Select Computer.
A list of the computers connected to the HP All-in-One appears on the display.
Note The Select Computer menu might list computers with a USB
connection in addition to those connected through the network.

Scanner and copier do not work


In your case, the scanner light is not lit during the scan or copy. If you print something from the pc, it would print just fine. Try to powercycle the printer, then try copying again. If it persist, scanner is defective but you may still use it to print from pc.

MP 160 Cannon Printer Won't Scan


try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd that came from your printer.

Does printer need to be connected to a pc?


From the Brother website: The MFC-5440cn offers both a versatile flatbed and an automatic document feeder with faxing and copying that don’t require the use of a computer. Add to that the spectacular high-resolution printing and scanning with both a USB 2.0 full speed and an Ethernet interface and you have the perfect all-in-one for the Small Office/Home Office user to create and print professional color documents. You can even print borderless photos.
Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Stripes on scanned photo


Do copies come out the same? How about when you print? If you get the stripes whenever the printer prints from the computer or copies, then you probably have a bad ink cartridge. If you get it only when you make copies or scan, then check for dirt on the scan glass. Clean it anyway with some commercial glass cleaner. See if that works.

Dell No. 962 (All-In-One Printer)


you need to go to your printer settings and make sure it is set as the default printer for everything. Make sure it is also set as your default scanner. you may also try lightening the image with the lighter/darker setting on the machine. if this continues, you may want to see if a section of the light is burnt out. this wiill cause darkness on scan & copies but not printing from the c drive. Make sure the machine is lighting up completely when is scans or copies. If part of the lighting is burnt out it will be a fix or replace situation.
