If you have a flat bed scanner or "all-in-one" printer (scanner, printer, fax, copier), place the document face down on the glass, go to start>control panel>scanners and cameras and follow the instructions in the wizard. The wizard will walk you through. then you can save and print like any other document.

How do set up my lexmark pro901 to scan to my pc so that I can email the scans


Make sure the Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer driver is installed on your computer. If you have the install disc that came with your printer, just insert it to your computer hard driver and follow the instructions on your computer screen. You can also the download the printer driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/d3ftso. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Again, just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Note: The install disc contains the Lexmark OCR scan software necessary for scanning documents for editing and saving them as PDF files. The downloaded driver does not contain the OCR software.
To scan to your computer using the printer operator panel:

1. From the home screen, navigate to Scan to Computer: Scan > Scan to Computer

2. Touch USB-Connected Computer or the name of a network computer. The local or network computer is the destination that will receive the scan. Wait until the printer has finished downloading a list of the scan applications available on the selected computer.

3. Select an application (in your case your email), and then touch Accept.

4. Select the color, resolution quality and the original image size. If necessary, touch Accept each time you make a selection.

5. Press the start button to start scanning. The scan is complete when the application you selected in step 4 opens on the destination computer, and the scan appears within the application as a new file.

To scan to your computer using the printer software (Lexmark Printer Home):

For Windows:


1. Click Start.

2. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.

3. Select Printer Home.

4. Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

5. Click Email, and then select Photo, Document or PDF.

Note: You can select Document only if an OCR application is stored on your computer. Scanning starts and the scan progress dialog appears.

6. When the scan is finished, a new e-mail message is created with the scanned document automatically attached.

7. Compose your e-mail message. Note: If your e-mail program does not open automatically, then you can scan the document to the computer and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.


For Mac:


1. From the Finder desktop, double-click the printer program folder.

2. Double-click the printer Center to open the All-In-One Center.

3. From the "What is being scanned?" menu on the main screen, select a document type.

4. From the "How will the scanned image be used?" menu, choose To be viewed on monitor/web page.

5. From the "Send scanned image to" menu, choose an application.

6. Click Scan.

7. Retrieve the scanned image from the application, and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.



I hope this information has been helpful.

When i email scanned docs from my HP officejet 8500 Plus printer to my email, the pdf's are too large. how do i set them to be emailed at a smaller size.


No problem, you can solve this problem very easily :
Whenever you scan a document directly to your e-mail in a PDF format then printer scans it using its own property and only scans the document without any editing in the font or characters.

But the output i.e. the scanned document in pdf shows the same text using its own properties. That font is selected by pdf and not by the hp software.You can open the scanned pdf file and manually change the font size.
Or else

The best way that I will suggest you :

- First scan the documetn in a pdf file or any format on your computer instead of directly on e-mail.
Because when you scan it to your computer printer will scan the document directly to computer and in this way after scanning you can open and see the document. You can make sure if it is scanned properly or not, however when you scan it to e-mail there are chances when we dont verify if the document is scanned properly or not. If there is any hardware issue or any other error then it will scan half page or a blank page....we wont be able to verify it.
- Also if it is an official document which is half scanned or has some problem in it will give a bad impact on the receiver which is not good for professionals.
- By scanning on computer you can verify the document, can make required changes and will be able to send the document in a proper way. It is going to take few seconds but results will be fruitful....try it..!!! I do the same way and there is not much difference

How do I scan a picture to e-mail? new officejet 6500


On the printer itself it says no scan option because there is no option attached from the solution center.

That means the mapping between the scanner and the software on the computer does not exist which results in :-

you will be able to scan from the solution center on the computer but not from the printer itself.

To solve this problem please follow the following document according to your window OS.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01798218&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3418705


You must set up a list of potential scan destinations in order to start scans from the printer.
To do that please follow the
( Solution two: Set up the destination list )

In the Document link Provided.

I am sure if you follow this document it will work.

Once you Update the device with the list of scan options. you will be able to see the scan to e-mail option on the printer.

( Note :- remember to send through the scan to e-mail option directly. You must have Microsoft outlook or outlook express configured on the computer Else it will not work. )

How does the 1210 scanner work with Windows 7? I have downloaded the driver for the printer and it works ok, but I cannot use the software for the printer. The copier and the scanner work, but i cannot...


You will have to do a two step process to send a scanned document or image by email; the scan to e-mail button won't work. Scan using either Windows Fax and Scan or Paint. Save your file. Then start (Compose/Write) an e-mail to the person you need to send the document. Click Attach and browse to the location where the scan was saved. The default folder is C:/Users/<user_name>/My Documents/Scanned Documents . Click OK after selecting that image. Finish writing your e-mail and send it.

If you'd like to automatically open the e-mail program, browse to the folder where you saved the fax from Computer (Start button) and right click on the image. Choose Send to Mail Recipient. The new mail compose window should open.

I hope this helps.

(a program like PaperPort may let you send to e-mail recipient without the extra step; however I'm not sure of the details.)

How to scan a hard copy, and send in an email?


Hello,
Install the Control Center CC3, if it is not already installed. Connect the MFC-5460CN to the computer. Open the CC3 software. Click the Scan button. You will have the choice to Scan to Picture, Scan to OCR, Scan to E-mail, or Scan to file.
You click to E-mail. The MFC scans the document and opens the default E-mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express), attaches the scanned picture and all that is left for you to do is to supply the E-mail address where the document is to be sent.

If you have problems doing that, scan to file then open the E-mail client to create a new message and attach the file you scanned.

Hope it helps.

Scan to e-mail toshiba e-studio 205


Easy reply would be to make sure you have an email application installed on your computer such as Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. That will have to be setup first, and might require some information from you internet service provider. Many people think that if they have a personal email account such as Yahoo or Hotmail, that this will communicate with the scanner. The scanner program installed on your computer wants to transmit your scanned documents to an email program that is also installed on your computer. Otherwise, scan the document to your hard drive, and then attach it to a yahoo/hotmail email manually. Hope this helps clear things up.
