Go to brother.com and find the support section. There you will be able to select your printer's model from a list. Afterwards you will be shown the list of available downloads for your machine. Download and install the scanner driver and you should be able to scan.

Actually here's the link: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/001200/dlf001213.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc7220_us_as&type2=1&os=7&flang=4&dlid=dlf001213

I have a Lexmark 1200 . I use it also as a scanner. It works fine producing jpg documents. Is there a possibility to obtain pdf documents and how? Thanks Giorgio Zanini


You scan documents to PDF format. You will need to install the Lexmark OCR scan software to do that. The scan software is only available on the install disc that came with your printer. Insert the disc to your computer hard drive and run the software. After the installation is successful, try to scan your document. You will then have the option to save it as a PDF file.
If you don't have the disc, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

I want to scan a picture onto my laptop i connected the cables and evrything. ir prints fine. but it dosent want to scan and my printer is a dell 924


Did you install the full software (if available for your OS) before connecting the cables? Were you trying to launch the scan from the computer or the scanner? The scanner buttons will not work unless the full software is installed and the monitor program is running.

If you installed the generic OS driver, uninstall it and then unplug the data cable. Then download and install the software from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1153481& . Select your OS and click Next then click on Drivers. Start scans from the computer first. (HP Solution Center has destination buttons that need to be set before the buttons on the scanner can work. Once you scan from the computer, you will have a better idea of the settings you should use as defaults for the buttons.)

Try connecting the printer directly to the computer, if you use a USB hub or print server. Also try a new USB cable. The scanner requires bi-directional communication and thus can fail even if the printer works. Your cable should be 6' or less in length.

WinXP, Vista and Win7 have options for scanning without the HP software. However, they do not work with the scanner buttons. Launch Paint (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint) and select File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Scanner in any of the listed OS versions. Vista and Win7 also include Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista has included Photo Gallery that also can acquire Scans (this is available for Win7 as part of the Windows Live package download).

I hope this helps.

I cant scan pictures to my laptop it just keeps saying connecting to pc but never uploads


Do you have the full featured software installed on the computer and set up with the default destinations? Is the monitoring program listening for the scan button being pressed? Can you launch a scan from the computer? Uninstall a generic OS driver that you may have installed and disconnect the data cable (if USB) before attempting to install the full software.

Try a new data cable (scanning requires bi-directional communication and can fail even when the printer works). Try a direct connection if you have a print server or a USB hub in place. Try using a different port and check if a known working device works as well.

Next launch the scan from the computer. Depending on your software, you may see a preview scan. Adjust the settings and try to get the full scan. If you get a failure at this point, it is frequently a cable issue.

I hope this helps.

(if the full-featured software is not available for your OS from your scanner manufacturer, then you will always need to launch the scan from the computer. WinXP, Vista and Win7 all can obtain scans with Paint (File

I wish to scan documents. Error message appears :


I assume your using a built in button labeled "scan". If so, you must be sure that you have the proper drivers which can be obtained from the HP web-page. In fact, even if you're trying to click scan from within software make sure you have the latest and correct drivers for your printer. On the HP web-site there are resources for your particular printer. Download any software that seems it might be helpful (such as a print management program designed just for your printer). Once you have the correct drivers, if you still have issues, try downloading a free imaging program such as gimp, or googles picassa is great for novices. From within the program, make sure the program recognizes your printer then click scan or capture from device or some similar command that should allow you to scan and edit your picture all from within the software. Again though, driver is key! It can be obtained by going to the official HP website.

When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?


You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

Hope that helps!

Read fax in memory MP830


it won't print faxes if ink is too low so it stores them until you replace the low cartridge or cartridges. Don't know if you can transfer to computer. Do it the other way around and go to www.myfax.com I did and I love it.

HOW DO YOU USE THE hp PHOTOSMART c4385 SCAN FUNCTION?


Don't try to scan from the printer control panel.  You need to launch the "HP Photo and Imaging Director" from your computer.  I have HP Photo & Imaging SoftwareVersion 2.0 installed which I believe was obtained from the HP site for the C4385.

The scan function works fine if you use this software.
