First Things First

An error or a problem can occur at any time when working with the printer. However, you can avoid them by preparing the printer for your printer-related needs. Here, we will see how to set up your printer for scanning.

  • Primarily, you must ensure one thing. That is, your printer is powered on, its hardware and software setup is done, and it is connected to your computer.
  • Using an outdated or incompatible scanner driver can result in a variety of scan issues. So, ensure that the latest and most compatible scanner driver is installed on your computer. If you’re using the HP Smart app, update it.
  • Loading the original is also critical for a smooth scanning experience.
  • Are you looking to save the scanned original on your computer? Yes? Then, check and enable the “Scan to Computer” feature on your printer. Need assistance in doing it? If so, refer to the instructions given under this page’s Enabling “Scan to Computer” section.

Where Can I Take A Document To Be Scanned?

  • The HP Envy 6455e printer includes a scanner glass as well as an auto document feeder.
  • Now, if you want to scan only one page of the document or an image, use the scanner glass to load the original.
  • Load all the pages of the document in the document feeder if you want to scan more than one page simultaneously.

How To Load Originals On The Scanner Glass And In The Document Feeder

  • On the scanner glass, raise the printer’s scanner lid. Check to ensure that the scanner’s glass is clean. This is very important. Now, get the original to be scanned and place it with its print side facing down, aligned with the top-left corner, as shown in the image below. After loading the paper properly, close the lid.
