      NOTE:HP introduced HP Solution Center to replace HP Director in 2005. HP Director is not compatible with Windows 7. If you were using HP Director with your printer and then upgraded to Windows 7, the information in the Windows 7 section of this document can help you.

      To scan a picture or document, follow these steps:
      Step one: Load the item to scan
      You can scan from the scanner glass or from the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) tray, if your product has one.
      1. Make sure that the product is connected to the computer.
      2. Turn the product on.
      3. Load the picture or document:
        • Scanner glass : Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass, and then position it according to the engraved guides around the glass (usually on the right-front corner or the left-front corner). Close the scanner lid.
        • ADF : Place the item into the document feeder tray. The printed side faces up and the top edge goes into the tray first. Adjust the width guides to fit the item.
          CAUTION:Do not load photos in the ADF. Use the scanner glass instead to prevent damage to photos.
      Step two: Scan the item
      1. Open HP Solution Center with one of the following methods:
        • Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP folder, and then click HP Solution Center
        • Double-click the HP Solution Center icon ( ) on your desktop.
      2. If you have more than one HP device installed, click the printer icon on the left for the printer that you are using to scan.
      3. Use one of the following methods to start the scan:
        For photos or artwork:Click the on-screen Scan Picture "button" in HP Solution Center.
        For a text document with or without graphics:Click the on-screen Scan Document"button" in HP Solution Center.
        A "Scanning from..." screen displays to prompt for scan settings.
        If this settings screen does not display before the scan starts, a preference was set to bypass the prompt. To adjust settings, follow these steps to turn the prompt back on:
        1. Cancel the scan, return to the home screen of HP Solution Center, and then click the Settings option.
        2. Click Scan Settings , and then click the appropriate option from the popup menu: Scan Picture Settings or Scan Document Settings .
        3. Select the check box, Prompt for settings at the time of scan , and then clickOK .

      4. On the "Scanning from..." screen, click the appropriate option under "Scan Shortcuts" on the left. Each shortcut has a default group of settings that display when you click it.
      5. Click Change Settings , and then read through the drop-down menu choices for all of the settings for the shortcut, adjusting any settings as necessary. Also click theAdvanced Picture Settings button and the Save to file Save Options button to view your choices and make any changes.
        Important : HP Solution Center versions and options vary, depending on your printer. For specific instructions on all the settings the software offers, click the Helpbutton on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
      6. Click Scan .
        The preview screen might display, if you selected the option to show a preview. Use the options on the preview screen to make any desired adjustments before you finish the scan.
      After the scan completes, it goes to the destination that you specified in the settings.
      HP recommends that you first get comfortable with using the "Scan Picture" and "Scan Document" on-screen "buttons" in HP Solution Center as explained in the previous steps. By doing this, you determine the scan settings that you use most often, and then you can more easily set up the scan button on your printer.
      Important: Before you use the scan button on your printer, use HP Solution Center to create the settings for that button . For example, you need to decide whether you want a settings prompt screen and a scan preview for each scan. Also, you must create the list of "shortcuts" that you want to display on the front panel of the printer.
      To get started, click Settings , click Scan Settings , click Button Settings , and then click the tab forFront Panel Scan Buttons . Read through the options, and then create the settings that you want.
      NOTE:The steps to set up the scan button on your printer can vary depending on your printer model, and the version of software that is installed. For specific instructions, click the Helpbutton on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
