Tips For Successful Scanning

At least three out of five users who perform scanning for the first time face issues. Scanning issues can occur for a variety of reasons. However, in most cases, if you look at the cause of the problem, you will figure out that a small software or hardware bug is behind it. There are some really useful tips that enable you to perform the scan operation easily, quickly, and, most importantly, without errors on your printer. This section addresses it.

  • The first and foremost important thing that you must ensure is that your HP ENVY Inspire printer’s hardware setup and software installation are done.
  • Following that, properly loading the original to be scanned is critical for a smooth scan experience. So, ensure that the original is clean and that its edges are not bent.
  • Dust or debris stuck on the scanner glass can lead to scan-related issues. Open the scanner glass. Check if any dust or debris is stuck to the glass. If so, kindly clean them using a clean cloth.
  • When should I use the printer’s scanner glass? If you want to scan only a page of the document or an image, using the printer’s scanner glass is best.
  • Do you want to scan multiple pages of the document simultaneously? Then, use the document feeder of your printer. Even if the ADF does not support auto-duplex scanning, you can manually scan both sides of the pages in no time. You will read more about it in the following sections.
  • How do I load the original for scanning? If you’re using the scanner glass, load the original with the print side facing down. Similarly, load the originals with their print side facing up if you’re using the document feeder.
  • Connect your iOS, Android, Windows, or Mac device and the HP Envy printer to the same network. This way, you can avoid communication issues and perform scanning easily and quickly with your printer.
  • Also, remember to keep the printer software, the HP Smart app, and your computer or smartphone OS up-to-date to avoid facing incompatibility issues while scanning.

All set? We hope that you find the information above useful. Let’s see how to scan with the ENVY 7955e printer without further ado.
