Premature wear on the product, requiring repair
For best results, use only HP-brand paper and print media designed for laser printers or multiuse. Do
not use paper or print media made for inkjet printers. Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend
the use of other brands of media because HP cannot control their quality.
It is possible for paper to meet all of the guidelines in this user guide and still not produce satisfactory
results. This might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and/or humidity levels,
or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
CAUTION: Using paper or print media that does not meet Hewlett-Packard's specifications might
cause problems for the product, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard

with Windows-based programs that support TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant scanning devices and
with Macintosh-based programs that support TWAIN-compliant scanning devices.
62
Chapter 9 Scan
ENWW
While you are in a TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant program, you can gain access to the scanning
feature and scan an image directly into the open program. For more information, see the Help file or the
documentation that came with your TWAIN-compliant or WIA-compliant software program.
Scan from a TWAIN-compliant program
Generally, a software program is TWAIN-compliant if it has a command such as Acquire, File
Acquire, Scan, Import New Object, Insert from, or Scanner. If you are unsure whether the program
is compliant or you do not know what the command is called, see the software program Help or
documentation.
When scanning from a TWAIN-compliant program, the HP LaserJet Scan software program might start
automatically. If the HP LaserJet Scan program starts, you can make changes while previewing the
image. If the program does not start automatically, the image goes to the TWAIN-compliant program
immediately.
Start the scan from within the TWAIN-compliant program. See the software program Help or
documentation for information about the commands and steps to use.
Scan from a WIA-compliant program (Windows XP and Vista only)
WIA is another way to scan an image directly into a software program, such as Microsoft Word. WIA
uses Microsoft software to scan, instead of HP LaserJet Scan software.
Generally, a software program is WIA-compliant if it has a command such as Picture/From Scanner
or Camera in the Insert or File menu. If you are unsure whether the program is WIA-compliant, see the
software program Help or documentation.
Start the scan from within the WIA-compliant program. See the software program Help or documentation
for information about the commands and steps to use.
-OrIn the Cameras and Scanner folder, double-click the product icon. This opens the standard Microsoft
WIA Wizard, which enables you to scan to a file.
Scanning by using optical character recognition (OCR) software
You can use third-party OCR software to import scanned text into your preferred word-processing
program for editing.
Readiris
The Readiris OCR program is included on a separate CD-ROM that shipped with the product. To use
the Readiris program, install it from the appropriate software CD-ROM, and then follow the instructions
in the online Help.

Scan file format
The file format of a scanned document or photo depends on the scan type as well as the object being
scanned.
●
Scanning a document or a photo to a computer results in the file being saved as a .TIF file.
●
Scanning a document to email results in the file being saved as a .PDF file.
●
Scanning a photo to e-mail results in the file being saved as a .JPEG file.
NOTE:
Different file types can be selected when using the scan software program.
Scanner resolution and color
If you are printing a scanned image, and the quality is not what you expected, you might have selected
a resolution or color setting in the scanner software that does not match your needs. Resolution and
color affect the following features of scanned images:
●
Image clarity
●
Texture of gradations (smooth or rough)
●
Scan time
●
File size
Scanning resolution is measured in pixels per inch (ppi).
NOTE:
Scanning ppi levels are not interchangeable with printing dpi (dots per inch) levels.
Color, grayscale, and black and white define the number of colors possible. You can adjust the scanner
hardware resolution to up to 1200 ppi. The software can perform an enhanced resolution up to
19,200 ppi. You can set color and grayscale at 1 bit (black and white), or at 8 bit (256 levels of gray or
color) to 24 bit (true color).
The resolution and color guidelines table lists simple tips that you can follow to meet your scanning
needs.
NOTE: Setting the resolution and color to a high value can create large files that take up disk space
and slow the scanning process. Before setting the resolution and color, determine how you are going
to use the scanned image.

Embedded Web server (network models only)
Network models are equipped with an embedded Web server (EWS), which provides access to
information about product and network activities. A Web server provides an environment in which web
programs may run, much in the same way that an operating system, such as Windows, provides an
environment for programs to run on a computer. The output from these programs can then be displayed
by a Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, or Netscape Navigator.
An “embedded” Web server resides on a hardware device (such as an HP LaserJet product) or in
firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of an EWS is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone with a networkconnected product and computer can use. There is no special software to install or configure, but you
must have a supported Web browser on the computer. To gain access to the EWS, type the IP address
for the product in the address line of the browser. (To find the IP address, print a configuration page.)
Features
The EWS allows you to view product and network status and manage printing functions from a computer.
With the EWS, you can complete the following tasks:
●
View product status information
●
Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones
●
View and change part of the product configuration
●
View and print some internal pages
●
Select the language in which to display the EWS pages
●
View and change network configuration
NOTE:
Changing network settings in the EWS might disable some of product software or features.

Customer self repair warranty service
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and
allow for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period, HP
identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will ship that part directly to
you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts: 1) Parts for which customer self repair is
mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs
of this service. 2) Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for
Customer Self Repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, this may be done at no
additional charge under the type of warranty service designated for your product.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same-day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography
permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will
help you over the phone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether
a defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP,
you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business
days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping
material. Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a
customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to
be used.
