The OCR software (ABBYY Fine Reader) included on the CD-ROM was a special edition. It wasn't meant to be upgraded to a new computer with a new OS. It might work on a Win7 32-bit OS with the compatibility mode (not a given). You could try installing it in the compatibility mode - right click on the installer and choose Properties then the Compatibility tab and set for XP. Then right click on the installer again and choose Run As Administrator.

Workarounds are available. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can install a virtual computer running XP for free. Download and install 2 programs/packages - Microsoft's Virtual PC and the XP mode. Install the ABBYY Fine Reader inside this "computer" and run the OCR on that machine. You may need to transfer files to external media (Optical disc or external drive) to share them between the "machines". Other methods include: keeping your old computer with XP or other compatible OS with the software and transferring files across the network (wired, wireless or sneaker-net), running a dual boot computer (with a paid licensed version of XP on the second boot partition) or running any virtual PC program (Parallels, Virtual PC, etc) with a licensed copy of XP.

The only free OCR program that I know of is SimpleOCR, http://www.simpleocr.com/ . As of this morning, the site does not list that the software is Win7 compatible. This software is limited and does not handle pages with columns of text well. (It eliminates the columns and runs straight across.)

There are several paid OCR packages that run under Windows 7. OmniPage 17 by Nuance works well, http://www.nuance.com/for-individuals/by-product/omnipage/index.htm . It costs $150. ABBYY Fine Reader also works but that is more expensive. There is the cheaper ABBY Fine Reader 9.0 Express Edition but it is currently listed as working with Windows Vista, not Win7. It's $50. You could try it.

If your documents aren't items you wish to protect, try one of the online OCR programs. An example is: www.onlineocr.net/ . There are a number of others listed by Google. I haven't tried any of these. I have a computer with OmniPage in my network.

I hope this helps.

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.
So it best to try this may clear what ever it is.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
All The Best: Pineworks

The blinking light indicates that the printer is on power saver mode. The Power Saver Mode saves energy by lowering power consumption during extended periods of inactivity. However, if you try to print from your computer when the printer is on power saver mode, the printer should automatically wake up and prints the job. You can also manually wake it up by just pressing and releasing the power button. Thanks.

Here is the way I bypass the alignment when I get a new cartridge: When the screen comes up that is asking for it, it does not have the option to "cancel" the printing of it. I just take the paper out of the printer and press "print". Since there is no paper in it, it cannot print. This will make the same screen come up again, but this time it has the "cancel" option. Now, every time I want to print something out, the screen that wants to print a alignment page comes up, and I just click on "cancel" - after that I can do my printing. This is a bit annoying, but it saves me some ink.

Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Hope this helps.

Leading cause of paper jams or misfeeds is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
