How to Scan

Small Format Scanner

Scanning using the flatbed scanner

good for media wider than 297mm(11.69") and non-paper media (wood, plastics, etc.)
 NOTE: Please insert a piece of clear film first if scanning media that could potentially scratch or mark (e.g. ink) the glass. Letter size (8.5" x 11") film sheets can be found behind the scanner.

Start by placing the media on the glass, aligning it to the top left corner. Then lower the lid; it's okay if it does not close all they way (i.e. if the media is thicker than paper).

Scanning using the sheetfed scanner

good for multiple sheets of media and double-sided media

Start by placing the media on the top shelf, aligning it along the left side, then adjusting the guides to fit the width.


Scanning to PC

  1. Log into the PC on the right side of the scanner.
  2. Open "HPScan".
  3. Select a shortcut on the left for pdf or jpeg, or "Everyday Scan" for more filetypes.
    To scan to Google Drive, Dropbox, SharePoint or OneDrive select "Everyday Scan", "More", then "Destination". Use the dropdown menu under "Send To" then "Configure" to sign in.
  4. Change the settings on the right as necessary.
    Select "More" in the top right for more advanced options (e.g. dpi, color, etc.).
  5. If adjustments are needed, make changes using the panel on the right.
    To zoom in before adjusting, double click the page, then select "Done" or "Cancel".
  6. Select "Save" and name the file.
    Don't forget to sign out in settings if logged into a cloud account.
  7. Select "Exit" in the bottom right or close the window when completed.
    If it asks to save changes to the shortcut, select "No".


Scanning to USB

  1. Insert USB into the port, found to the left of the display.
  2. Select "Scan to USB Drive".
  3. Make sure the destination is set to the USB.
    Select the arrow next to the USB name to navigate to a specific folder.
  4. Name the file using the on-screen keyboard or the pull-out keyboard.
  5. Select "Options" in the bottom left corner to choose file type, dpi, color, etc.
    Do this before the preview scan, as some options will be unavailable after.
  6. Touch the right panel to preview the scan. Make any final adjustments to the image.
  7. Select the green "Save" button in the bottom right.
    If it asks to retain settings for the next job, select "Clear".

Large Format Scanner

good for large media and higher dpi

Start by inserting your media image side upwards. The scanner should grab the paper to hold it in place. If scanning thicker media, please refer to the manual and carefully remove back media guides, if necessary.

Scanning to USB

  1. Insert USB drive into port on the right side of the display.
    If prompted with a popup upon startup, select "Hide".
  2. Select the "Scan" tab on the right panel.
  3. Select the page with magnifying glass icon on the bottom row to scan a preview.
  4. Use the right panel to make adjustments to your scan, e.g. lightness, resolution, and size.
  5. Ensure that "File destination:" is set to E: drive, your USB.
    It will likely default to "D:\Images" folder. In the file navigation pop-up, go back using the ".." button.
  6. Select the blue button with diamond in the bottom right to scan and save.
