I have tried to changed the document when I open it up but it just doesn't work. I open the the HP solution center click scan document it open a window for TIF file it has a icon that says change settings so I then click on it but there are no options for PDF, only JPEG PNG and other than I have no knowledge of.

If you are using the SmartThru software, the otpion to change the scanned format is in the same screen where you state the name of the document and settings for color, resolution, and others.

Be blessed.

Make sure you are choosing scan document instead of scan picture. Also make sure you are scanning at a resolution of at least 151dpi. (see here). See this link for xp, and this link for vista. Please also consult this link to check for the possibility that you may need to reinstall the hp software.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

HP DJ F2235 doesn't have PDF option to scan PDF


Scan to PDF requires third-party software and linking that software to the HP Solution Center. The HP imaging software only saves to BMP, DCX, FPX, GIF, JPG, PCD, PCX, and TIF. You need a program like PaperPort or save the document as an image and then convert it to a PDF (using Microsoft Office, another Office Suite, or a dedicated image to PDF conversion program.)

I wish that I had better news for you. PaperPort can be found for $50 from some vendors after rebate.

My HP Deskjet F4280 all in one scans only to Photo Smart. I need to scan it to documents so I can send documents by email. How do I get it to scan to documents?


You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

Scanner wont scan


Be sure that you have the latest scanner drivers from HP, for your system and OS. Often an easy workaround is to use Microsoft Office Suite document imaging.

The ms program can be found in the tools folder of the suite...Plus is that is almost always works on most any scanner, the minus side is that it creates only a .tif or a .mdi file. To read those, you need to set your DEFAULT program settings to call the Microsoft MSP viewer, typically located C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft shared\MODI\11.0.

HP has been working on solutions to this issue. Further, HP has LIVE, free support available online, try connect to chat.
