When I have to copy lots of notes which cannot be put in the ADF
(Automatic Document Feeder), I do it manually. However, let's say that
you copy (manually, and thus without the ADF) one page of a given
document. Once the light of the scanning light is at the end of its
course, * It goes back as slowly as it was going when it was
scanning, but it
is not scanning anymore. Why is it so slow if it does not scan
anything? I used to have a ScanJet 6xxx... and it was really fast!
* I open the lid, place the other page, then immediately push the
"Copy" button. However, nothing happens: it appears to be necessary to
wait for the last scanned page to be totally printed (okay, it does
not take a lot of time, but if you scan 100 pages like this, you lose
1 sec * 100 pg. = 1'40'', and that is too much for me). I can actually
see when it has been printed, for two reasons:
1. the page is (obviously) out of the printer;
2. the green LED does not twinkle anymore.
Can somebody tell me if these issues can be solved?
Which scanner are you using now? Which version of scanning
OfficeJet L7500 Pro. It is an officejet and is thus a device which
supports printing, scanning, and faxing. My problem is not related to
any software at all: what I am speaking about is related to my
OfficeJet: I am able to copy documents without any link with a
computer. Thus, anything I said in my first message is about copying
from the OfficeJet to the OfficeJet; there is no gateway, or anything
else. What happens is thus *only* related to my device, and not to any
of my computers.
I agree so much with you. If I had to tell you all the problems I had
HP's scanning software has gotten worse and worse over the years. I
have a SCSI Scanjet 8250 that needs a 200MB install file. All that
crap to scan, copy and print documents and photos. And it fails to
work sometimes. Today, I wanted to scan a piece of newsprint and the
damned thing kept asking me to install software that was already
installed, then it would scan without a complaint. HP has fallen
victim to the same
syndrome that afflicts Micro$oft.
The HP install also inserts a program into startup supposedly to see
if there are any updates. There never are, but a client's all-in-one
gets nagging messages to order ink cartridges, when the carts are
still half full. The "update" is a way to call home to receive yet
more sales pitches.
with my HP scanners... I think that HP provides good devices, but the
softwares are always so ... miserable.
My first HP scanner was something like the HP ScanJet 6*** (and was at
a price ~500€ if you speak in Euros; it is actually not that
cheap!). I had an electric problem with the lamp, and it *really*
ignited (I was on its side, and I solved the problem before any other
bad thing happened). It was partially due to the shop, which had given
me a AC/DC radio cable, at the place of the one which was optimized
for my scanner.
I then bought a HP ScanJet 5***. With the 6***, the HP Precision
ScanPro software was really exciting. It was practical, easy to use,
and without any frills like image albums, etc.
But, with this 5***, I had to install a lot of unuseful software, and
my documents were more difficult to scan and to save on my computer,
because the software was built for a family-use (you see, no practical
menus, only beautiful colors, lot of really unuseful stuff which makes
the software more and more difficult to cope with, and also to load,
assuming you keep calm when using it). I then tried to use my mere HP
Precision ScanPro software, but it did not recognize my scanner. (It
was not done for this, but I was really sad to learn that I would have
to stay with the family software.)
But my problems disappeared after only two years: the scanner decided
not to work anymore. There was a little screen in front of it to
indicate what it was doing, and this screen was, on 90% of the time,
twinkling, with strange characters (you see, when you look at it and
you think `Erm, what did I do? What the heck is that due to?'). These
problems became more and more common, and it became completely
disfonctioning. It never worked correctly anymore: even if, when
plugging AC, it was sometimes working, when scanning, the screen
became the same, and the light was twinkling like mad.
As I have to have reliable devices, I decided to buy this OfficeJet,
which has still no problem (thanks God!).
See before, it is completely dead.
Maybe you want to use the ScanJet 6200 again?
With Linux-based OS'es, there is no problem with the unuseful
I am close to investigating 3rd party scanning software, and paying
what is necessary for the reliability...
shipped-with scanning softwares. Try it, you won't believe your eyes.
Any idea for my slow OfficeJet? Thanks.
