This is an ongoing problem experienced after the scanner has been used quite a it. When scanning documents through the top loader the image gets streched at the top and distorts the image. I have not been able to find what the cause of the problem is other than age.

Possible wear and tear. The image path movement must match the scan head one has to be 'stationery' in relation to the other- It seems that one element is slowing down. Is there a rate of travel adjustment to be made - check your manual

How do i scan?


Dallis,

1. Please power on the scanner.

2. Place the document to be scanned in the scanner face down and close the lid.

3. Start the word processor.

4. In the File menu you will find an option to either scann a document or Import from scanner. Use this and start the Scan Document.

5. First you will get a rough scanned image. Set it right for everything to be scanned by using a dotted rectangle on the scanned image. Once that is done, then use the SCAN option and you will get the final scanned image.

6. Save it to a folder.

I dont know how to scan


HI, The easiest procedure to scan a document using your scanner is open Paintbrush that is installed with your operating system. Click on File Menu at the top left corner of your screen, then select "From Scanner or Camera". Once you have selected the option, you will be prompted for your scanner. Select the installed scanner and go on scanning the image/document placed on the glass bed of your scanner. Once the scanning has been completed, save the image file.
Cheers!

How do i use my scanner


If you have loaded the software for the printer/scanner.
Go to your HP director Icon and start this program.
you should see your Scanner / printer listed under Select device.

You can place a document/picture in the document feeder on top.
OR you can place the document / picture directly on the glass.
(Lift the hinged lid to reveal the scanner glass)
Don't worry the document feeder uses a different scan wand.
Now document / picture in place select the Scan document or Scan picture icon from the HP director. Depending on which type of document you have placed in / on the scanner.

Scanner should warm up then scan presenting you with a preview image. From here you can decide what and where to go.

You are not limited to just the HP director.
Other applications can use the twain source to activate your scanner software. This will transfer the scan to your application.
Irfanview is a prime example. Image viewer that will let you "Acquire" and image from you scanner. Be sure to select the twain source.

Good luck!

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade


Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

Scan to pc


On my version of the hp software I can quite easily do this.

You will need working email software on your pc, so to scan the image, ensure that the pc is connected to the scanner and the pc is switched on - with all the HP scanning software installed.

Press the scan button on top of the scanner, with the document inside the scanner faced down.

When the HP Software pops up on the PC - the scanned image should appear. You can then click the email as attachment button in the HP software.

There are many ways to do this operation. So if you get stuck then let me know I we can go into more detail.

Please don't forget to rate.
