Q: Solved: Need an All-in-one printer/copy/scan???

OK ladies and gentlemen, need some advice. My HP F380 has bit the dust, best all-in-one I have ever owned and had it for 8 years. I would like something like it as I need to be able to use the scanner and copier on occasion. I liked the fact I only had two cartridges to replace, one black, and one color. I do not need a photo type which requires four separate cartridges.

Any ideas?
Thanks,

Capt

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My hp 3545 printer's printer, scanner and copier is not working.While copying a document the printer stopped responding and got stuck at the scanning message on the screen.So i cancelled the scanning and restarted the printer. And since then the printer neither can scan nor copy any doc.It is always stuck at the scanning message.I have tried the hard reset, firmware update and the scan doctor, but no good.And recently i replaced the empty print cartridge with a new one and printed the alignment page. The printer asks to scan that alignment page. And since the scanner is not working the printer now can't even print anything!So yes the hp printer is dead within 1 and a half year of purchase.I need help regarding two issues here.1) how can i disable the scanner/copier of the printer and use the printer at least for printing the documents.URGENTLY2) how can i fix the scanner or copier issue.Any help will be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

I was given a used h.p. 4210 printer,scan,copy machine. I used it for photo printing images from computer it works fine. When I copy or scan there is a black line down the scanned image or on the copy. It is about 1 inch wide and goes down the page from top to bottom. When I first turn the machine on it asks to allign the print cartridge. I print the test page fine but it asks to scan it but it will not accept . Any help is appreciated.

I'm almost positive this can be done under Windows Vista. I have a little HP all in one printer/fax/scanner. I have a receipt for tires I just bought. I want to scan the receipt, and somehow save it to the hard drive of my computer, or maybe the flash drive. I don't remember installing any software when I bought the printer, both the printer and my lap top are HP. I think this can be done just under Vista.
Thank you, help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Scan/Copy/Vista

Normally with any scanner, you need to have the driver installed for the computer to recognize it. Usually the driver is located on the software disk and you can just locate the setup.exe. However, if it's an older scanner you will need to visit the HP site to look for a Vista driver for it. It may be called TWAIN driver. But by default, Vista will scan documents into your C:\Users\<username>\Documents\ directory.

You can also follow this guide to help you scan:

I just got a new PC and installed the software for my Canon MG6120 multi-function printer on it. It connects to the PC wirelessly, and works perfectly when I print something from the PC. But when I want to scan something using the buttons on the printer, it come up what a message to "Set the PC to start scanning", which I've never seen before. If I hit Save/Forward, the only computers list are "Local (USB)" and my wife's laptop; there is no mention of my PC.

I have tried reinstalling the printer using the CD that came with it and everthing seems fine until the end when I get an error message "error occurred which files were being copied 0200 0000" followed by "Installation failed" and to Start Over. But clearly the installation did NOT fail because I can print wirelessly from both the PC and my wife's laptop. It just can't scan to my PC.

What's wrong? (Canon's support site is absolutely no help).

While I can use my printer (Brother MFC J615W) on my home network, for some reason I cannot now get my printer to be recognized on my network map. I have attached a couple screen shots that show what comes up when I request a network map via the control panel. At the page bottom it says the following devices have been detected (my printer) but can not be placed in the map (it doesn't say why).

I cited the above first because it may have something to do with the following much more important problem. While I am able to get the printer to print a text document from my (laptop) computer (which of course confirms that it is on the wireless network), I am unable to get the printer to connect to my laptop when I'm attempting to scan a document from the printer to my computer.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding or overlooking something here, but I don't know what it is.

I'm looking for an efficient, relatively quick way to scan directly to a printer over a network, using the scanner and printer together as a photocppier.

Our office has an excellent, super-fast Xerox Phaser 860 DP printer. Our photocopier has died, and our scanner is old. So we're in the market for a new copier, and perhaps a scanner.

However, as I compare per page costs of inexpensive copiers, I find that the per page cost for the Phaser is as cheap or cheaper.

So I'm wondering if there's a way we can just buy a new, fast scanner, hook it to the network, and send the output straight to the printer?

I should mention we're a small office, and do very limited photocopying.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
 

A:Scan to Copy over network

I think you're trying to use a hammer when you need an axe. I've tinkered with scanner/printer applications, and they're basically a pita. There is no way I know of to scan directly to a printer, you need an application to process the scanned image. Quite frankly, I'd buy one of the printer/scanner/copier combos that are so popular nowadays. If you don't do much copying, an inkjet model would probably suffice. As a bonus, you get a color copier option. I have an HP PSC-750 scanner/copier/printer, and it's pretty handy.

Interesting problem, my MFC 7820n suddenly decided that it would take 10 minutes to scan a black and white page in 100 dpi resolution where it used to only take 10 seconds. Also, when trying to make a copy, it takes an absurd long time and then only copys 3/4 of the page.

If I unplug the network cable, the copy function works perfectly. If I send documents to print, no problem. So it would seem that the network function of the scanner is messing with the copy function??? Any ideas on how to remedy this? I've talked with Brother support for 1.5 hours, they say take it to a repair person. The network settings are set correctly (per Brother) and so I don't know what to do next.

Operating system is Windows XP Home, but I doubt that it matters since when the network plug is pulled it copies fine.

My guess is that the nic port on the printer died. From what I can tell, that printer is 6yrs old. Nothing lasts forever and the price of MF printers is pretty cheap now. I just bought an epson top of the line MF printer, scanner, fax that works perfectly for all of $179 at the egg.

It indicates that your Windows installation may be corrupt, but it can also be due to a virus.

Have you scanned with an up-to-date virus checker?

Try a system file check first.

Start - Run - type "SFC /scannow" in the Run dialogue box and hit Enter.

Do not type the quotes, and make sure there is a space between "SFC" and "/scannow"

Case is unimportant. If you get it right a dialogue box will appear and show the progress. Takes a few minutes. That should replace any damaged system files from the cache file.

I just purchased a pre-owned Lenovo T420 laptop with Windows 7, but amazingly, over these many years, I've never had to back up my OS before because someone (my tech guy mostly) had always done it for me. Anyhow, while I do intend to make a full system backup copy, which I have no doubt will include the Windows 7 OS, I would also like to create a backup (disk) copy of my OS only since no install disks came with the computer. I can load the Windows 7 OS onto an 80Mb CD, but the entire hard disk backup will take many gigabytes and I intend to use a 32 Gb flash drive for that purpose.

My first and essential question is, can I create a Windows 7 Pro "restore" disk by just copying and pasting the entire "Windows" file on my hard drive to a CD or Flash drive...or is there more to it than that?

When I started to create a backup copy of the entire disk using the Windows backup program, I took particular notice to the
fact that (after I selected the custom selection option rather than the automatic selection for which files to copy) that the Windows file was no longer listed on the "C" drive menu provided in the backup program. It is certainly listed on my "C" drive when I bring it up directly, so can anyone explain to me quickly what that's all about?

I tried printing ticket confirmations off the internet. Unfortunately I didn't notice that the default printer had been set to a program-specific document printer (ie not a "real" mechanical printer).

As what I was printing was not in the correct file format the print job failed. I still have the print job in the queue for that default printer.

Is there any way I can get the print job from that printer queue and put it into the printer of my choice? (Assume I would have to find a temporary file or access something in the registry)

I can't reprint the tickets as you only get one go - otherwise I have to go in person to the office and have them printed out.

Thanks

My canon MP600 printer will print from the computor but when I try to copy a document it will only pring 1/4 of the page.
 

A:Printer will only copy 1/4 page

Does the scanner component work or same issue ? It could be that the 'reader' ( i cant remember the tech name for the part) is not able to travel the full length of the document . Try scanning an A4 document to see if that is read okay ...

I have Avast version 4.7 Home Edition Free installed on my computer.

When I ran a scan today with Avast, it detected a virus and I deleted it. I then ran another scan and there were no viruses reported.

Then I went to Kaspersky's online virus scanner and ran it and it detected 2 viruses on my computer, but of course the only way to get rid of the one's detected is to purchase Kaspersky Anti Virus.

Questions are.
1. How did the virus that Avast detected get on the computer in the first place? I have the on access protection control running with all of the modules activated with the exception of Outlook (I do not have Outlook on my computer).

2. Why is Kaspersky detecting 2 viruses on my computer at the present time and Avast detects none?

Do I need to ditch Avast Free and pay for Kaspersky as a better Virus protector.

Thanks for any ideas and suggestions,

Jerry

I have a HP Officejet j4680 aio injet printer and I'm not able to send a fax or scan from the software HP Solution Center to the printer it keeps telling me that a software component was not found or was not installed properly and that I should re-install the Photosmart Essentials 3.5 software and try to scan again but every time I re-install the software I still cannot scan or fax.I have done this numerous times and still cannot figure out what is causing it to fail or what software component is missing.Does any one have any idea what is causing this scan failure from my pc?
 

A:Cannot scan from computer to printer?

Firstly, I don't have the same printer as you do, but I did have similar problems with installing a HP G2710 scanjet scanner. I believe it's down to not having the correct drivers, (the disc supplied was for XP and Vista) and I am using '7'.
After a lot of trial and error, I got it to work by doing the following.
(You might be able to adapt this to your software.)
-----------------------------------------------------------
*Uninstall your HP driver, then;
1) Copy HP CD to a new folder on C:\ drive.
2) Open that folder, right-click on "hpzsetup" then choose "Troubleshoot compatibility"
3) Choose "Troubleshoot program"
4) Choose "Vista Sevice Pack 1"
-----------------------------------------------------------
The general idea might do the trick for your situation and setup.
Another idea I found that works, is that I can launch the scanner from the program called "Faststone image editior" , "File", "Scanboard". That worked, when the HP shortcut on the desktop would fail.
Lastly, I think I saw a Windows 7 driver available now for my scanner so there is a good chance these problems will get sorted out in time.

Hello guys

I have installed windows 7, and connected it the my printer: (Brother DCP-135 C)
after connected it without install the software as I did before with Windows XP, it can printer, but cannot scan, I tried to install the software, it tells me I have to update,
any idea how to solve this matter?
best regards
 

A:my printer can't scan files

When I got my Win 7 computer, I had to go to Brother and get updated drivers for my multifunction printer. I am sure you will probably be able to do so by going to www.brother.com and updating the drivers for the model you own...
Good Luck

I have a 7310 all in one printer on a network. I was able to get the printer to work but the scanner will not work. Hp program will not display the scanner option and w8 scan will not run. Any ideas out there?

A:HP 7310 printer-scan

I have exactly the same problem with a Canon multifunction. For me it is a show stopper since I require PaperPort in my computer use. Have found no solution or even suggestions online through forums, or directly with the company so for me Windows 8 is a future produce and not worth the effort to learn if I like it or not.

I have already disconnect the printer from the laptop, shut down the laptop and the printer, turn on the printer ( ran through self test), plug in the printer to the laptop, turned on the laptop.

Was able to print a test page fine.

I downloaded the "HP Scan and Capture" which can scan but it is not finding the printer. It just catches the webcam as a tool for scanning but not the scanner which I connected to the laptop.

I even downloaded the drivers that encompassed a whole range of different HP printer models from the HP forum. But not working I guess?

Can you disconnect the webcam while you install the HP scan & capture ?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if you can use the Windows 7 Windows Fax and Scan with a shared printer? I got my computer to print via the shared printer, pero when I attempt to preform a "New Scan," it says no scanner is attached to my computer. Any insight?

Thanks

A:Scan Through Shared Printer

A shared printer is a printer not a scanner so I am thinking it is not possible. Generally scanner functions are not available over the network even for large all-in-one business type machines.

My 89 yr old mother-in-law bought a desktop from an estate sale. Said she was told it had a 'pirated' copy of XP on it. Called me to find out what that was. She only wanted the computer to do e-mail and FaceBook with the grandkids and great-grandkids. Said she only paid $20 and wanted to know if I could "fix" it. Now, I do have a legal copy of XP that was on a computer that has long since bit the dust. The XP program was an upgrade from ME. I would like to help her and wonder if I could take my upgrade legal CD of XP and just put it in the machine and copy over the 'pirated' copy?
