Scanning When scanning using this all in one printer, i am unable to scan anything without the scanner automatically cropping it for me when i press the green button for it to begin. It used to scan the whole page regardless of what appeared. How can i change the settings to allow me to do this? I have tried to scan using the lexmark software but it crashes when it processes the image for me using the program. I prefer to scan images straight into a .jpg file and edit it using a different program. Any ideas how to fix the auto-cropping problem?

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord

Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    I WANT TO USE THE SCANNER BUT, I DON'T NOW HOW, It go to the printer all the time, could you please help me ? I have the EPSOM STYLUS BX300F PROFESSIONAL, PRINTER,SCANNER,FAX,PHOTOCOPIER.

    Basically, you can use the scanner in two ways. Please open the scanner cover and place the document or image you want to scan face down.

    1. Press the SCAN button (color button = color scanning, black button = monochrome scanning). then your scanner will scan the document or image in the scanner tray.

    2. Go to the scanner program installed in your computer when you installed the printer. Open it and then click the command button SCAN.

    Note: Make sure that you installed the Scanner software when you installed the printer. Without the software, your scanner will not work. Please reinstall the printer including the scanner software.

    Some **** messed with my CanoScan Lide 200 scanner and it crops the photos and it cuts all the important stuff out. How do I undo the crop photo. I have tried doing everything including unistall and...

    Uninstall the driver and ALSO the scanning software. Reinstall both after a computer restart. Check the prescan settings. May be it is selected for a smaller area. This will stay on even if the driver is reinstalled. Look for 'default' option in the scanning software, if available press 'default' and select your settings.
    There is a general bug in most (not all) of the Scanning software, that mere changing of the settings don't work just by changing the settings. They work only after the 'default' is pressed.

    What is the difference between direct scanning and scanning through software (after installing driver)

    Scanning through software enables you to crop and adjust settings before scanning.

    Most of the time my Nikon 5000 works well. Recently I encounter the following problem. After several normal scans the program stops after the physical scan. (can hear from the scanner movment.) Nothing...

    Hi, I have the same problem. I am running on the same computer with the same software Nikon Scan without problems. Found out that the problem happens mostly when a crop is selected that just eliminates the scanning frame. Without crop mostly OK. However no reason why and no real solution

    Cropping down a photo when scanned

    if the basic scanning window is coming up with a preview of the image, drag the dotted line around the outside of the scanner bed to the position and clic re-scan.

    Scanner not working


    I understand that you are unable to scan after upgrading the compuer from ME to XP.

    Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

    Check for the communication between the computer and the printer as scanning needs bidirectional communication unlike printing.

    To isolate the issue I suggest you to try scanning from the Windows Image acquisition(WIA) wizard on the computer.

    Follow the below steps to Scan using WIA

    1.Verify that the all-in-one product power is turned on and the printer cable is properly connected.

    2.Click Start then Click All Programs then Click Accessories then Click Scanner and Camera Wizard.

    3.Follow the Scanner and Camera Wizard instructions to scan images to the computer.

    If you are unable to scan using WIA, confirms that the issue is with USB drivers, please follow the below given instructions to refresh USB drivers:

    1. Save and close all programs that are currently running.
    2. Click Start, select Shut Down, and choose Restart the computer.
    3. Press the F8 function key, this will display the Windows Startup menu.
    4. Select Safe mode.
    5. After Windows loads in Safe mode, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
    6. Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button.
    7. In the Device Manager Window, double-click the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    8. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
    9. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

    NOTE: Repeat steps 8 and 9 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

    The USB port is now uninstalled.

    Now, restart the system. The system automatically detects and reinstalls the USB port.

    Then try scanning from WIA and if that works try scanning from HP Director.

    Please click on Start>>Programs>>HP>>HP Director.

    If unable to scan from HP Director, search for the file " hpqscnvw " in C Drive which is the executable file for Scanning.

    Double click on My Computer to open it > C Drive > Programs files > HP or Hewlett Packard > Digital Imaging > Bin Folder. Check for the file " hpqscnvw " there.

    If found double click on the file to and try scanning. You can also save the short cut of the file to desktop and can use that file for scanning.

    Run the scan diagnostic utility to resolve the issue.

    Automatic Cropping...

    Before turning off the autocrop feature, reset the software to the default setting. Then turn off the autocrop feature. Some scanning software need to be reset to the original default condition and accept software switches only then!
