I am trying to scan a document to attach to an e-mail. When I try it tells me to start the scan from the computer. How do you do this?


Firstly check out if the Printer/Scanner driver is install and displayed in My Computer list. If not get the driver CD which comes with the printer or if it is lost download from the website by providing the printer model. Once all is done, click the scanner/printer icon and scan the document and saved it to one of your folder.

Currently,the scanner is trying to pick up documents already saved in the computer.

How do I use my x5495 to scan a resume and then to edit it with my Dell XP computer?


You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up!

Please, how do I install my flatbed mercury scanner 1200cu+. I cant find my installations disk


I found an Windows XP driver here: http://www.mercury-pc.com/download_file.php?option=file&item_id=2870. The documentation for the Mercury KOB 1200cu+ scanner indicates support for Win 98se/Me/2000/XP. On a newer Windows OS, it may not work but you can try and see if a generic scanner driver installs when you plug it into the computer. If it is recognized, scan using Windows Fax and Scan (File, Import from Scanner) or Paint (Import from Camera or Scanner).

I hope this helps.

Driver scanner benq 3300u


If you have a BenQ Scan to Web 3300U, just plug in the scanner to your USB port on the computer and plug the power into the power bar. XP will recognize that you have connected the scanner to your pc. It will install the scanner immediately.. Go to MY PICTURES. The top option on the left hand side of the screen will be "to obtain pictures from a scanner or a camera". Click on this.. It will tell you that you have a flatbed#23 . Click on next. Using the preview button, scan the document. Using your mouse, make the scan box fit your picture or document. Then click on scan. Save your scan job . You can then view your scan job.

Scanning


My Photosmart 2575 v has worked fine as well for over a year and now it won't scan. I get the same message: "Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot". I ran all updates and they said I have them all and everything is working perfectly. It's not though. I still can't scan. I tried their work-around by opening paint and then acquring image from the scanner but that does not work either.
