How to avoid paper jams
•
•
•
Smooth out any folds or curls in your documents before placing them into the
auto document feeder. If the leading edge of a document is curled or folded,
it may cause a paper jam.
When loading paper that is smaller than 74 mm (2.9 in) in one dimension
(such as business cards), place the pages with the long side parallel to the
paper guides.
To scan fragile documents (such as photos or documents on wrinkled or very
lightweight paper), place the document in a clear, heavyweight document sleeve
no wider than 216 mm (8.5 in) before loading them into the auto document
feeder.
TIP: If you do not have an appropriately-sized document sleeve, consider
using a sleeve intended for use in a ring binder. Trim the ring-side edge so the
sleeve is no more than 216 mm (8.5 in) wide.
•
Make sure that the hatch on the document feeder is securely latched. To properly
close the hatch, press until you hear a click.
•
Adjust the paper guides to the width of the documents. Make sure that the paper
guides touch the edges of the original. If there is any clearance between the
paper guides and the edges of the documents, the scanned image might be
skewed.
When placing a stack of documents into the feeder, gently set the stack in the
document feeder. Do not drop the stack into the feeder and do not tap the top
edge of the stack after you have placed the stack in the document feeder.

1.
Unfold the document feeder extension and the output tray extension.
2.
Adjust the paper guides to the width of the documents. Take care not to overtighten the
guides, which can restrict paper feeding.
When scanning small originals such as checks, it is especially important that the paper
guides fit snugly against the edges of the original.
3.
Fan the stack of document pages to ensure that the pages do not stick together. Fan
the edge that will be pointing into the feeder in one direction, and then fan that same
edge in the opposite direction.
Use the scanner

Troubleshooting
21
Scanner lamp stays on
The scanner lamp turns off after each scan. After about 15 minutes of inactivity, the
scanner automatically enters its Sleep (Power Save) mode.
If the scanner lamp remains on after a long period of inactivity, turn off the scanner, wait
30 seconds, and then turn the scanner back on.
Scanner does not scan right away
Make sure the scanner hatch is closed, and that the scanner is turned on.
If the scanner is in sleep mode, press the Power button to wake the scanner up.
Scanner scans only one side of a two-sided page
Verify the TWAIN-compliant application supports duplex scanning and that the duplex
option has been selected.
Scanned image is fuzzy

Verify that the original document is not fuzzy.
Check for any obstructions in the scanner paper path and make sure the paper width
guides are positioned appropriately. Try another scan.
y
Clean the glass strips inside the scanner.

Scanned pages are out of order
•
•
•
•
Verify that the page order of the original document is correct before inserting into the
document feeder.
Make sure that there are no staples, paper clips, or any other attached material
(such as adhesive notes) that may cause the pages to feed incorrectly.
Verify that pages are not stuck together.
Place the first page of a multiple page document toward the back of the document
feeder.
Optimize scanning and task speeds
Several settings influence the total time for a scanning job. When you want to optimize
scanning performance, consider the following information.
y To optimize performance, make sure your computer meets the recommended
system requirements. To view minimum and recommended system requirements,
see www.hp.com, select your country/region, search on your scanner model, and
then search on datasheet.
y
In the scanning software, choose the layout setting that matches the orientation of
the originals in the document feeder.
y
If you are scanning to editable text, the optical character recognition (OCR) software
requires more processing time than for non-OCR scans, which is normal. Wait for
the item to scan.
22
HP Scanjet 3000 Scanner
NOTE: For the best OCR results, scanner compression should be set to a
low compression level or disabled. Resolution should be set to 300 ppi (dpi)
for English and European languages and 400 ppi (dpi) for Chinese or Korean
character recognition.
y
Scanning at a higher resolution than necessary increases scanning time and
creates a larger file with no additional benefit. If you are scanning at a high
resolution, set the resolution to a lower level to increase scanning speed.
See also
Scan files are too large
The scan is completely black or completely white
The item might not be placed correctly in the document feeder. Make sure that the item
you are trying to scan is placed face down.
Scanned images are not straight
Verify that the document feeder guides are centered on the scanner and set to an
appropriate width for the original being scanned. Make sure the paper guides touch the
edges of the original. In addition, the application used for scanning may support "deskew" to
straighten the scanned images. Note that performance may be negatively affected but the
results may be superior.
Vertical black stripes appear on the scanned image
There is dirt on the scanner glass. Clean the scanner glass.
See also
Clean the scanner glass
Scan files are too large
If the saved scan files are very large, try the following:
•
Verify the scan resolution setting:
°
200 dpi is sufficient for storing documents as images.
°
For most fonts, 300 dpi is sufficient for using optical character recognition
(OCR) to create editable text.
°
For Asian fonts and small fonts, 400 dpi is the recommended resolution.
Scanning at a higher resolution than necessary creates a larger file with no additional
benefit.
•
Color scans create larger files than do black and white scans.
•
If you are scanning a large number of pages at one time, consider scanning fewer
pages at a time to create more smaller files.
•
Most scanning applications allow users to control the compression used for output
files. Refer to the documentation for the scanning application for more information.
Troubleshooting

If the page looks skewed as they feed into the scanner paper path, check the
resulting scanned image in the software to ensure that it is not skewed.
The pages might not be placed correctly. Straighten the pages and adjust the paper
guides to center the stack.
The paper guides must be touching the sides of the paper stack to work properly.
Please ensure that the paper stack is straight and the guides are against the paper
stack.
The document feeder or output tray might contain more than the maximum number of
pages. Load fewer pages in the document feeder, and remove pages from the output
tray.
Clean the scanner paper path to help reduce misfeeds. If misfeeds still occur, clean
the rollers. If misfeeds still occur, replace the rollers.

Scanning fragile originals
To safely scan fragile originals (photographs or documents on wrinkled or very lightweight
paper) place originals in a clear, heavyweight document sleeve that is no more than 216
mm (8.5 in) wide before inserting into the document feeder.
TIP: If you do not have an appropriately-sized document sleeve,
consider using a sheet protector intended for use in a ring binder. Trim the
ring-side edge so the sleeve is no more than 216 mm (8.5 in) wide.
Paper does not feed successfully
Re-load the pages into the document feeder, ensuring that it makes contact with the
rollers.
The scanner hatch might not be securely latched. Open the scanner hatch and then
close it by pressing firmly.
A problem with the scanner hardware might exist. Follow this procedure to test the
scanner:
1. Ensure that the power supply is securely connected between the scanner and a live
electrical outlet or surge protector. Check that the green LED on the power supply case
is on to verify that the power supply is functional.
2. If the power supply is connected to a surge protector, ensure that the surge
protector is plugged into an outlet and turned on.
3. Disconnect the power supply from the scanner and turn off the computer. After 60
seconds, reconnect the power supply to the scanner and then turn on the computer,
in that order.
4. Try to rescan.

Originals are curling up in the scanner output tray
Under dry conditions, lightweight originals such as those printed on carbonless copy
paper may curl in the output tray. To minimize curl, flatten curled edges on the originals
before placing them in the document feeder. If you cannot flatten curled edges, make
sure the curled edges are facing down when you place the originals in the document
feeder.
The bottom of the scanned image is cut off
By default, the scanning software can scan media that is up to 356 mm (14 in) long. For
longer pages, the end of the document is not included in the scanned image.
Verify that you have specified an appropriate page size in the scanning software.
