If the All-In-One Software is Sucessfully installed, then you should have a icon or in Start all Programs you will see HP Solution Center.
Open solution center and try scanning from there either scan picture or scan document and follow the on screen instructions.
And thescanned image will be store in MY Documents there will be a folder as My Scan and under my Scan for each month there will be a floder you will find the scanned image there.

Good Luck

How do i scan a document from my c3180?


Here are the steps to scan documents to your computer

1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer.
2. Locate the " HP Photo and Imaging Director " icon on your computer and double click it.
This icon was placed there when you installed your printer.
3. After double clicking on the icon, a menu screen will appear showing the scanning options
available on your C3180 printer.
4. Place your document or picture on the printer's glass top and close the lid.
5. Click on the appropriate selection from the menu screen ( Scan Document or Scan Picture )
6. The scanning process will now take place. The scanner will make two passes. The first pass
will allow you to judge the accuracy of the scan and to make changes, if necessary, from your.
monitor. The second pass is the acceptance of the document/picture to the computer.
7. Scanned documents can be viewed in the " My Documents " folder, scanned pictures can be
viewed in the HP Photo Gallery and the My Pictures folder.

I hope this was of help to you.

How to save scanned image from MX310 to computer?


Save the scanned image as a TIFF for archiving. TIFF files can beresaved and edited without compression loss, thus maintaining the highquality of an image. If you are enlarging an original 4 x 6 photo to8.5 x 11, save the scanned image as a TIFF at 600 dpi resolution. TIFFsprovide more detail than other file formats. Scanned images for emailand posting on the Web, which are to be viewed on a monitor, should besaved as JPEGs at 75 or 100 dpi. JPEGs generate smaller file sizes,which download faster on the Internet. Increase the resolution to 150or 300 dpi only if you are emailing a scanned JPEG image for therecipient to print. Save JPEGs at the maximum quality setting.

Scan views fine; prints fuzzy


Try to change the dpi to the maximum, maybe 600 dpi. This will make the picture more defined.

Facing copying problem from scanning section


Although you didn't specify the scanner model, this solution should work.

If the scanner has a top feeder, open it.

You will see a thin strip of glass, either to the left, or right of the large scanner glass.

There is most likely a small spec of ink, white out, etc on it.

Clean the strip glass with rubbing alcohol and the line should go away.

Scanning problems


The following came from HP's site. I have also included a direct link for troubleshooting to your model if the following does not help at the very end of this post.
Hope this helps!! :)
Scanned image quality is poor
  • A dirty scanner glass (fingerprints or smudges) will slow down performance and will affect scan quality because the unit is scanning the smudges on the glass. Turn off the unit and clean the glass with a soft cloth or sponge slightly moistened with a non-abrasive glass cleaner.
  • Reinitialize the scanner by shutting down the HP all-in-one and then unplugging the power cord. Make sure that all originals are removed and that the scanner glass is clean. When the power is reconnected and the HP all-in-one is turned on, the scanner will recalibrate.
  • The video driver and video settings on the computer may slightly change the image appearance. The HP all-in-one scans in 24-bit color. Setting the video display settings to less than 24 bit or 24 million colors will result in a loss of color information when displayed on the computer monitor. The video driver itself may change the appearance of colors when viewed on the monitor.
  • Changing the image size will affect how the scan appears. Resizing the scan may make the image fuzzy. Resize the image in the destination or make the original smaller.
  • When scanning an image, save it to a different file format. For instance, save it as a JPEG or TIFF file. When saving a scan as a JPEG, there is often an adjustable quality or compression setting. If the scan is to be used in Windows (such as in a screen saver or for wallpaper), the scan must be saved as a Windows bitmap (.BMP).
  • The destination can represent colors differently than they appear in the original. If the destination is the image editor, modify the colors in the image editor.
  • Make a copy with the same quality settings. If the copy looks better than the scan, the imaging software may be affecting the scan quality. For example, Adobe PhotoDeluxe supports printing at 300 x 300 dpi only, even though the all-in-one product is capable of 600 x 600 dpi. Some versions of Adobe Acrobat change images to either 75 or 150 dpi, depending on the version.
  • Some image editors also convert the file into their own format or use a different default format resulting in loss of quality during the conversion process.
