Windows 7, Build 7000, installed without a hitch, and detected all necessary drivers, including for my HP 5610 Officejet. I can print from it, and I can scan from it using Windows Fax and Scan--thus the drivers are obviously working OK.

When I try to install the Vista software from HP's disc, it fails after a couple of minutes (and after plugging in the USB cable, which it recognizes). This means I don't have the HP scanning software installed. Given Windows Fax and Scan, that wouldn't be a big deal, except HP's scanning software, unlike Windows Fax and Scan, allows you to save scans in .pdf format, which is really, really, useful (at least for me).

Anyone else with this problem--or, better yet, with a suggested fix!

I have a multifunctional HP Officejet 9110 which I purchased when I had a Windows XP operating system. I have since changed my PC and I have now a Vista operating system.

While I have had no problems with the printer (the driver is already installed) I cannot make the scanner work any more?

I tried sites like Vuescan but it doesn't seem to work.

Any suggestions?

I tried using my scanner to scan to computer and got this message" You need to install or run HP software for this feature". I have reinstalled this printer at least 7 different times using the original installation disc and downloaded drivers from HP with the same result. During the installation process the installation hangs up at 96% but after a 10 0r 15 minute wait it seems to finish. The scanner icon is present but non functional. The Hp director icon does not show up, if there is one. This printer was moved to a different computer requiring the reinstallation on Windows XP. This question was posted before by "mumsey" but I couldn't find the answer.

Thaks in advance for your help.
 

A:HP Officejet 7310 scanner needs to install

I paid an HP Tech to fix my problem. The first tech said it was a registry problem because thats what their downloaded diagnostic program indicated and I would have to go to microsoft to resolve the problem. Since I had paid $34 for two weeks to resolve the problem I decided to try another tech. The next tech fixed the problem by doing a "reverse install" where he started with the printer already connected to the computer, via USB cable, and then "one at a time" he manually installed the drivers. My scanner now works perfectly as do the rest of the Hp 7310 functions.

The conclusion that I reached is "be persistent" until you find the tech that is trained to fix the problem.

All features work including faxing, printing and copying but when I try to scan the "read out" says "scanning error. connect to PC." The machine is connected to the PC. All printing commands are coming from the PC. I have unplugged everything from the HP 7100 and waited 5 minutes and replugged in everything (USB and Power). I have updated the software though there are some "unremovable" software items that say HP 7100 when I go to add/remove programs in control panel. I have unplugged the unit from the surge protector and waited 5 minutes and plugged it in again. Still I get the same message. Any ideas what is going on and/or how I can correct it?

Hello. I have to purchase a top-of-the-line scanner to scan 4x6 photos.
There are so many choices and I do not know what specs I need to look for when deciding on a scanner.
Here are some of the criteria and if you have a suggestion, please let me know. Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas.

1) Available at Circuit City, Best Buy, Office Depot - brick and mortar
2) Under $200
3) Quality is the #1 priority - scanning 4x6 photos to import to pc.
 

A:How to choose a TOP-grade scanner

The general measure of scanner quality outside of #bit color depth, which all seem to max out now anyway, is DPI capability. This allows you to capture the most data from the original image...and results in LARGE files.

So the higher the DPI stats the better the image can be.....if you have the capability to print it on a high quality Photo Printer.

Personally I believe that you will get a better result from a middle of the road scanner and a HIGH quality printer than the other way around.

Oh, I would not even consider a sheet feed scanner, but select a platen model instead. I have a feed model and I wish I had spent the incremental $$$ in the beginning and gotten the Platen mdl.

I am looking at purchaseing a new scanner. I have several thousand slides and negatives that I am needing to scan and want to find the best equipment for this at a decent price. I've seen some people say the Plustek 7500i SE is a good dedicated scanner. Even the Plustek 7200i SE has a good rating. Is there any that are better or that you might recommend instead. I'm really struggling on what direction to go. A dedicated film scanner is suppose to be better quality but at a much higher price. I've looked up flatbed scanners for under $500 and the CanoScan 8800F seems to have the highest rating and good reviews.
If anyone could point me towards one they like or recommend I would greatly appricaite it.
Like I said I'm getting to the point where I'm getting confused on which direction I should go.
Thank you for your help.

Hi White Knights, Good Guys and Gals,

My PC was attacked, likely through Internet Explorer today, since I haven't downloaded anything. The following are is the list of Malware that XP Security Center has notified:

=email-worm.win32.netsky.q
=rootkit.win32.agent.pp

The program "Protection Systems" continues to pop up prompting me to buy along with random IExplorer bombs despite having removed it from programs. The system regularly freezes when I employ anti-malware programs.

I have attempted to use in normal and safe operating mode (Mcafee from safe command prompt)

=Stopzilla (Halts early in operation)
=Malwarebytes(fails to open even with changed name)
=Rooter Malware Finder (Eric_71) (operates results indeterminant)

I am not in a good position to format the PC (in the wilderness).

Any advice what is preventing these malware programs from operating?

Thanks, and happy to repay the favor particularly if you like homebrew since PC wars arent my specialty!

According to Windows XP For Dummies from year 2002, any scanner can be used with Windows XP because of some basic WIA which permits scanners to be used without being installed. Since I have an older scanner which worked well on another Windows XP computer on which the scanner was installed, I figured I could follow the instructions in that Dummies book to use the same scanner in Windows XP on a different computer. So I began to try.Instructions began like this:To use the Scanner and Cameria Wizard,1. Click Start --> Control Panel2. Click Printers and Other Hardware, click Scanners and Cameras...BUT THERE WAS NO CORRESPONDING WINDOW PRESENT. THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SCANNERS AND CAMERAS WINDOW, BUT NONE THERE.I could then not follow any further instructions.I also found in Control Panel, an item called Scanners And Cameras, so I opened this to see if there were selections which I could follow according to the Dummies book. There was only an "install hardware" item inside. Also, somewhere along the attempted process, Windows invited me to look for drivers to install, but I was not sure if that fit my purposes or not. Would that path bring in the WIA software which Windows XP is expected to already have?What am I missing here? Windows XP is supposed to have some WIA software allowing basic features of any scanner to be used, but I could not find the instructions path to make use of the scanner. The scanner was also plugged in while I tried the process... Read more

Currently I use Microsoft Security essentials as my "active monitoring" - What i'm looking for is any virus scanners that you find work well? (I only like "free" scanners.)

Consider I'm not seeking an active "monitor" that runs as a windows process. What I'm looking for is a "file scanner" that scans designated folders/drives.

Now adays, if you're paying attention, the quantity of spyware/Trojans/active x viruses is at an all time high. It seems like I get infected going to common websites even. I am looking to expand my assemblage of file scanners. In my opinion, the more, the better. (Sometimes I like to scan my drives with 3+ virus scanners. I'd like even more.)

I currently use:

Malwarebytes - Sweet secondary scanner. Doesn't run as a process (is just a scanner) and isn't "active monitoring" Perfect!

clam - Sweet scanner I actually got lastnight. Takes a long time, and doesn't clean files? (that's fine, but not as good as I hoped)

Windows 8, of course; Brother MFC-7460DN Laser Printer. Paperport 14. Nothing I do will allow me to scan from that printer in Windows 8! However, I can print just fine.

Windows 7 machine, Brother MFC-7460DN Laser Printer. Paperport 14. Everything works just fine and dandy. I double checked just a little while ago, and scanning went off without a hitch.

The only difference between Paperport on the Win 7 machine and the Win 8 machine is that I bought Paperport 14 for the Win 8 machine and while waiting for it to arrive, I downloaded and installed the trial version.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Paperport and the printer multiple times, in the Brother Utilities I clicked on and installed the Scanner Utility and still no joy!

Here's a snip of the Installation Diagnostics. The Scanner (Driver) Port looks hinky to me, but what do I know?

And, yes, I could use my Brother MFC-J825 for scanning, but that would be a pain because of the printer's location. Or, I could run into another room and use the J5910, but that would be even more inconvenient. 'Sides, I hate to have something that just won't work in Windows 8.

Bottom line is that it does seem to be a Windows 8 issue, because when I check, Windows says it's all good. And it ain't!

I would very much appreciate any help I can get with this, since I'm flummoxed so far. Thanks in advance.

Hi Wynonna,

I sense that you are usually very well versed in repairing your own issues so I doubt that I can help you; however, lacking any response to your issue, I will throw in "my2cents":

Please do not take offense to any of my suggestions if they sound too basic:

So, I assume you have already downloaded and tried the latest drivers from Brother?
Brother: MFC-7460DN: Downloads: United States

Can I also assume you are using it via a direct USB connection and it is not set up as part of a network and it is not wireless?

If so, can I assume you have applied the latest firmware update (9/6/2013)?

I have bought an Epson Perfection 1200S scanner, second hand. I hoped to plug it into the USB of my PC but only after buying it did I see that the 1200U model is for USB and the handbook for this 1200S model says that unless my PC has an SCSI board, I need to install one. The scanner came with an interface board but I am not confident about opening my PC to install it.

The scanner also came with a Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B, which is not part of the Epson package but I guess is an extra that the seller threw in. It has a USB prong on one end that could go into my PC, and the other end would fit the cable that attaches to the scanner.

Can I install the scanner without using the SCSI board?
 

A:Solved: Can my SCSI scanner run as a USB scanner?

From the looks of it the Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B is a usb to scsi converter so you should be able to plug it into the USB port and have it work. Seems like it should be Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B to SCSI cable to scanner.

While Microtech USB-SCSI-DB25B did not give me too many things to look up... maybe you can provide a picture of this unit to verify....

either that or verify its something like this -

I have a Brother all in on MFC-J615W and it has been BEAUTIFUL for me. One of the main things I've been doing with it is scanning old pictures for genealogy purposes. I LOVE the fact that I can use the option FROM the scanner that allows you to scan INTO a graphics/photo program all wirelessly (on the scanner, I select SCAN and then "into a graphics program"). It has always shown the "connecting" message in the printer display and then it proceeds to open the scan in Paint (as default). No problems. LOVE IT.

Tonight, I just can't get it to go. It acts like it is trying to connect, but then just goes back out to it's default display (the time) and I have no scan.

HOWEVER....if I were to open up the photo software and IMPORT from the scanner, I have no issues.....and yes, this is wireless, as well.

SO..because I can do one wirelessly and not the other, I wouldn't think it's the network...or am I wrong? It's just bizarre that it would connect one way and not the other. Hmmmmm......

It just takes longer to import than to just scan into a graphics program, I think, so I like to scan INTO the software from the scanner..

Thanks in advance for any insight!

That is a setting in your motherboard bios.
Depending on what make your motherboard is you have to press a key (Most are the Delete key) while it just starts to bootup to get into the bios settings.

However all this does is open avg... do i need to put /scan or something after this in order for it to actually scan the file?
Thx for your help.

Simply copy and paste the following line-

into the"Scan files for viruses using" box in MSN:
Now everytime you get sent a file over MSN, you will see AVG scan the file, and then a dialog will pop up to tell you the results of the scan.

I work at a retail store selling computers. I always have questions about Scanners and just how much dpi is enough for certain projects.
For example; If I were to take a 4"x6" photo scan it, and print a 8"x10" on a inkjet photo printer(HP 7150 or the like) would I notice a difference in quality between a 1200x1200 dpi and 2400x2400 scanner? What is the general rule of thumb here? I've heard the human eye can not distinguish between 300dpi and the extra dpi is useful for enlarging. Such as, a 600dpi could double the size of your scan without losing any quality. 1200dpi quadruaple and so on. Is this true?
One other thing, is there a real simple way to explain what is the difference between a 2400x4800dpi scanner and a 2400x2400 scanner. I know that the smaller number of the two is the true dpi it will give you, but what does the other number mean?

Hehe, I know this is pact full of questions. Any comments/answers are very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

A:Scanner dpi: How much is enough?

A very good photo has 300 PPI of information. If you scan at over 300 PPI you are not increasing the content but just adding extra pixels. The scanner is inventing those pixels by guessing at what they should be based on neighbors. You can do that at least as well in a good image editor and more quickly by just scanning at 300 PPI and resampling to higher for large blowups. This is a good read Ė go on to the next page where he runs tests on a photo taken with a fixed focal length Nikon on a tripod: http://www.scantips.com/basics08.html

Real world objects like jewelry or mechanical parts can be scanned at higher resolution as long as you donít have one of those skinny CIS scanners that get their power from the USB. CIS scanners have no depth of field and will only scan the surface of something completely flat on the surface of the glass..

If you scan in two digit B&W (lineart) higher resolutions will help eliminate aliasing or jaggies in text and line drawings. You end up with large files for what should be small files but it is worth it for some uses. I never go above 600 PPI for anti-alising but you will benefit from even higher with deminishing returns. Scanning a full page document at 2400 PPI in a standard consumer scanner would take a LONG time. Only the smaller number really matters. A 1200 X 2400 scanner does 1200 pixels per inch and the stepped motor can stop 2400 times in an inch. The 2400 is basically meaningless.

I recently purchased a Canon LiDE100 scanner and installed as directed on PC running Windows Vista. Problem is that intermittently when I seek to use any application involving the scanner, I get an error message indicating it is not available.

In WIA Scanners and Cameras; Properties: "Not available"
Test Scanner button: "The test failed because the device is not available. Verify the connection and try again."

However, in Device Manager: "The device is working properly".

The problem is always cured by simply unplugging the cable from the USB port, waiting a few seconds, and replugging it.

I have read some similar requests for assistance here, but they tend to relate to old equipment, and the advice to get a new scanner, upgrade drivers, etc does not apply to me. I have tried Canon's online help, but they have not been able to solve the problem.

I'm not sure that this is the place to post this, but here goes for now.

I have done quite a bit of research to find out about the best features on a scanner, especially for color management. Epson 1200 or ScanMaker come up well. I have searched on the internet for information as to where to look at these in my area but have come up empty. Neither Business Depot or Future shop have them.

I have a very inexpensive scanner, Artec Ultima 2000, which no one has heard of. It doesn't give good prints, but maybe better software would give better results. Is it the software that makes the difference in picture quality? Reproducing photos is about the only thing I will be using the scanner for. Being able to use it to photocopy text is secondary. If I decide to get a new system,I would appreciate opinions as to the best scanner and software for accurate colors when photos are reproduced. Also,can anyone tell me where Epson and ScanMaker are sold in Canada?

I am so frustrated. Your opinions will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.

I used Acer 640 BU flatbed scanner with Windows 2000. When I installed the Mirascan v4.02 software with Windows XP, it wouldn't work. I downloaded Mirascan v4.03u10_BQA, after uninstalling V4.02. I can't install V4.03. When I run install, the message is "Do you wish to uninstall? If I do uninstall, unplug scanner, reboot, I still get "do you wish to uninstall?" I can't install V4.03, even if I remove it from my computer completely, download it again, reboot, and try to install. Help. Do I have to get a new scanner?

I have quite a few years doing installs & such, but this is the first time I've been asked to network a scanner.

Just in case someone has done this or has a solution it is a Canon mp730 multifunction device pluged via USB into a wireless linksys printserver. Yes, the printer prints fine but the guy called & asked about using the scanner from his desktop.
 

A:Has anyone ever ran a scanner over a lan?

My best advice is runaway.

I've set up HP and Epson network scanners and they rarely work as intended. You sweat over geting it all set up and then find no one uses it because they have to get up from there desk to use the scanner. Then the person who is near the scanner gets P$"$%£% off because people keep asking them to put stuff on that scanner and they get interupted by people asking is the scanner switched on. If the PC that has the scanner connected to it is a uses PC it will take a performace hit during the scan.

Set up is normally easy enough if the scanner has network software.

Q: Scanner

I have a little microtek scanner that just started scanning my color items completely in yellow.. also, when I use black and white or grey scale, lines come across the pictures..
I heard that it might be dust, is there some way to clean it?
Do I really need to get a new scanner, or is there a way to adjust the settings to get it to stop doing this?

I have no idea weather this is from the stone-age or not, but I got told to try a scanner out while clearing the girlfriend's loft (attic) out, and i cant find any vista/7 drivers for it anywhere.


Code:
MAKE - TRUST
MODEL - DIRECT WEBSCAN 19200
this is a pureUSB device (usb connected AND usb powered).

any ideas?

EDIT: downloaded the only avalable driver (named 12389_07.exe), run it, and it placed the following files into C:\download\driver\12389_XP


Code:
Web.EXE
Web.W02
Web.W03~Web.W10 (see screen print)
Web.EXE will not excecute in Windows 7 (throwing an incompatibility error (version of this file is NOT compatible with your vesion of windows)), leaving me to believe its a 16-bit app.

advise?

Hi I have an Hp PrecisionScan Lt for ScanJet 3300C series scanner.
I have loaded on the disc for Xp however when I connect the scanner It says that 'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfuntioned, and Windows does not recognize it. The scanner Is not meant for Xp only on 98 to NT I was wondering if anyone knows where I can download the drivers for this as I am having no luck looking for it.

Thanks in advance
