Scanner cuts off the top 1/4 inch every time I scan.

Every time I scan, with multiple different software, The top 1/4 inch of the page gets cut off. I talked with dell tech support they told me this was not normal, so they sent me a refurb, and it still has the same problems. so now i dont have a new machine but one with 8000 prints, and 3000 scans that still cuts off the top 1/4 inch.

This sounds like a setting in your software.  Perhaps making sure that you're scanning the right size paper.  Also, look on the printer to see if there's a setting to choose the right size paper.

Scanner scanjet g2710 blue shadow problem

The blue shadow problem you're experiencing with your HP Scanjet G2710 scanner could be caused by various factors, including issues with the scanner hardware or settings. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially fix the problem:
1. Clean the Scanner Glass: Start by cleaning the scanner glass thoroughly. Use a lint-free cloth and a mild glass cleaner to remove any dirt, smudges, or debris that may be affecting the scanning process. Make sure to clean both the main glass and the small strip of glass used for scanning smaller items.
2. Check Scanner Settings: Ensure that the scanner settings are configured correctly. Open the scanning software on your computer and verify that the color settings, resolution, and scan area are appropriate for your needs. Adjusting these settings might help alleviate the blue shadow issue.
3. Update Scanner Drivers: Visit the HP support website and check for any available driver updates for your Scanjet G2710 scanner. Download and install the latest drivers to ensure compatibility and optimal performance. Outdated drivers can sometimes cause scanning issues.
4. Test with Different Software: Try scanning with different scanning software to determine if the issue is specific to a particular program. If the problem persists across multiple software applications, it is more likely a hardware issue.
5. Check the Flat Cable: Inspect the flat cable that connects the scanner head to the scanner motherboard. Look for any visible signs of damage, such as cuts, fraying, or loose connections. If the cable appears to be damaged, it may need to be replaced. Contact the manufacturer or a qualified technician for assistance with replacing the cable.
6. Contact Manufacturer Support: If the issue persists after trying the above steps, it's recommended to contact HP customer support for further assistance. They can provide you with specific troubleshooting guidance or advise on any necessary repairs or replacements.
When contacting support, make sure to provide them with detailed information about the problem, the steps you have already taken to troubleshoot, and any error messages or patterns you have noticed. This will help them diagnose and resolve the issue more effectively.

How do I scan multiple pages to one file using a deskjet 2512 printer/scanner

On the control panel, select scan to computer and choose PDF.

If you are using the sheet feeder, it will scan all pages and create one file with them all.

OR

If you're using a scanner glass, i.e. one page at a time, when the first page finishes scanning, you will get a message asking if you have another - answer YES and follow the instructions (basically that means place next page on scanner glass and hit OK/Continue). Rinse and repeat until you've scanned all pages then answer NO.

You should find a PDF file in your HP Scan Folder usually named "scan.pdf" unless you've changed the settings. (If there is/are already scanned files in that folder, they will have consecutive numbers, e.g. "scan001.pdf" "scan002.pdf" etc

Xerox Copycentre C20: Copier doesn't scan top 1-3 inches of page. Happens intermittently. When this happens, it moves everything else on page to the top of the copy, cutting out what should be

The document feed rollers may be dirty/worn which is causing the paper to come into the scan area late causing your document cut offs. use a clean, lint-free cloth dampened (not moist) with water and clean the document feed rollers. Confirm they are dry then, try scanning multiple pages and see if they pull through without stalling. If they do, it's time to replace those rollers.

How do i scan multiple pages and sav it to my documents. It seems like i am only able to scan and save one page at a time

Hi

If you have a Top feeder on the scanner, you can scan mutiple pages. Change the setting of the scanned file to pdf file (not JPEG) by going to the scanner icon and change the type of file you want to scan. Scan it as PDF FILE and then it will scan multiple pages. Regards

If the bottom is vertically split, then there could be some problem in the hardware (bottom scanning module) Check for loose contacts. If it is cut horizontally, it must be definitely loose contat problem.

Scanner is not reading multiple pages...

Check your scanning software settings. If you are getting only one file output, then you must have chosen 'multipage' option.

Canon Dr-5010C Scanner to Pc problems.

Are other formats, like JPG, working okay? Unselect multiple pages so that you get on image per sheet. Reinstall scanning software after a 'scandisk' command.
