Photosmart 5512: I would like to analyze not only black and white

I tried to find some configurations but I can not...

When I try to scan a sheet saying that is an image of the document, it kind of "break" leaves in different documents, and if I say that it is a document, scannner scans in black and white...

Is it possible to scan in collor and save to the pdf format?

Thank you


Hi @Rossinni

Open your Applications folder, then on the Hewlett-Packard folder.

Locate the HP Scan icon and move it to the trash.

Then install the HP Easy Scan application instead, it's the latest version of HP Scan:

Now, try to scan from the printer once more, in the future any document should appear as color and picture as a full page with no cropping.

Kind regards

    How can I get my Windows Gallery pictures to view and print in chiputa, not just black and white?

    Hi Petergrossman,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Vista answers Forum!

    I need few details about the question you posted.

    * What are the name and model of the printer?
    * You receive driver updates for your printer through Windows Update?
    * The printer prints the other applications in color?

    In the meantime, try the following steps.
    1. try to print the default pictures in Windows Photo Gallery and check if you get a printing color.
    2. try to uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it.

    Also check the setting of the color of the printer. Go to printer settings and make sure that you have selected the option to color.

    To print a picture, follow these steps: -.

    If you have a printer connected to your computer, you can make prints of digital photos. The quality of your photos depends on several factors, including the type of printer paper, ink and the settings of the printer of your choice. You can control many of these settings when you print the picture, but keep in mind that the overall quality and resolution of the digital picture you are printing will affect your final result.

    1. open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking on the Start button, all programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.

    2. click on the image you want to print.

    To select more than one picture, hold down the CTRL key while you click the pictures that you want to select.

    3. on the toolbar, click on print and then click on print.

    4. in the print pictures dialog box, select the printer, paper size, qualite quality print, style print and number of copies to print.

    5. When you have finished choosing how you want to print your photos, click Print to start printing.

    Choose printing options follow these steps: -.

    Before you send a print job to the printer, decide if you want to print all or part of the document or Web page. You may, for example, annotate the pages to print or select a part of a document before sending it to the printer.

    Here are common printing tasks to consider:

    1. to print that a hollering part of a document or a file, make a note of the page numbers for each page you want to print.
    2. If you want to print part of a page or a Web page only, select the content to print before printing.
    3. If you want to print a specific page, click anywhere on the page before choosing the print options for the document.
    4. the page that you clicked becomes the current page and you can print it by selecting this option in the print dialog box.

    After deciding what to print, choose how the print copies should look, and then select a printer.
    Use print preview

    To see what the print will look like before you print it, open the document in a program that offers a preview before printing. Print preview is generally located in the file menu of a program. You should be able to get an overview of each page of the document. In some programs, you can choose print in preview mode options and then print directly from the preview. In other programs, you will need to close the preview, change the document or your printer settings and print.

    If you preview or print a document, and it does not appear the way that you intended, you will need to change the document or change your print options. For example, if one part of your document fits on the printed page, you may need to reduce the font size, reduce the margins, or change the page layout and then try to print again.

  • Photosmart 8450 prints only black and white with the new Mac with OS 10.6

    I just bought a new Mac with OS 10.6.  (former was OS 10.5)  Now my Photosmart 8450 will print only in black and white.  I installed the single upgrade on the site of HP, no change.

    Is there an other update I need?

    You want to disable automatic session opening, which may be why it behaves in this way.

    Go to System Preferences

    Go to security

    Under "for all accounts on this computer", place a check mark next to 'turn off automatic connection.

    In addition, I do not know if you set a password for the test account, but put something simple as 123 - just something / anything.

    Once that is done, choose log in the Apple menu, or reboot. This should bring you to the login screen where you can specify the account to enter.

  • HP3209a not printing black and white enamel but will display the web page

    I'm on Mac OSX10.8.  My HP Photosmart 3209 has suddenly stopped printing yesterday and had a pop up that says I got printhead problems.  I spent two hours on the phone this morning with two so-called experts feel, the first who said that the problem was with my iMac (he couldn't find it) and the second who said it was a problem with the printer (he couldn't find it).  The printer is connected to an iMac by USB cable.  It will not print e-mail or most of the pages of black and white but now curiously print a web page. BTW, I put new ink in it and did not help anything, and Printhead Cleaner ran about two dozen times.  I try to run an alignment but the page it prints which is for most of the blocks of color blue on half a page is not recognizable on the scanner when I try to run the alignment.

    I think that you always print head problems.  Go to System Preferences > print & Scan.  Click on your printer, click Options & supplies.

    From there, go to utility > Open Printer Utility, then clean the print head.

  • HP officejet 8500 has more will not print black and white because the color cartridge is low

    I have entered the property and set it to 'levels of gray' and 'use black ink only', but the printer still will not print because "the yellow ink cartridge is low.

    incredibly frustrating that the cartridges of color completely stop you from printing, even if you are trying to print in color.

    is there a known solution for this?

    Unfortunately, the printer does not print until the replacement of the yellow ink. There is no work around for low ink message.

    Hello Jeroen.

    I assume you are using the printer on a Macintosh, envoirnment? Please correct me otherwise.

    The workflow default scanning set up to scan documents in black and white. Be sure to change the settings for scanning to scan color documents:

    If your version of OS X 10.7, be sure to install the critical update below. Skip this step for any other version of OS X.

    Now change the settings of the device as follows:
    1 open the HP utility and select your device.
    2. based on Scan Settings open the "Scan to Computer".
    3. click on the tab scan tasks.
    4. Select the affected shortcut and click on change... (or double-click on the shortcut).
    5. in the section of scanning from an HP device, click the blue triangle to expand the menu.
    6. in the expanded menu now, open the drop-down next to the Mode
    7. now select the color option, and then click OK to save the changes. The next scanned using this workflow is displayed in color.

  • Spider Solitaire for Vista does not properly - black and white

    Need help, there's a week my Spider Solitaire went wobbly.  I have Vista to the Microsoft home page.  It comes in black and white and sort of close.  Other games play ok.  How can I reinstall the Spider Solitaire to work properly?  Any ideas?

  • HP Photosmart 7350 will not print in black and white

    This camera has served me well for printing color photos and other things for several years.

    Ink is EXPENSIVE, and I have several text documents I want to print. I have several

    56 ink cartridges (black).

    I can simply not a black and white "no photo" to print.

    I tried with the 56 and 57 (beside him) inside AND out. I tried to select in grayscale,

    in all three sub-options (high quality cartridge, black only, optimized for the FAX). Tape

    is NOT yet on the 56 cartridge. I do not use any mode of 'keep the ink' I know.

    The best I can get using the FAX setting optimized (I think) is very pale, a bad quality

    print page - words too dark, I can barely read (light grey). I suspect it is sucking

    the cartridge (cyan-magenta-whatever) 57 to print it.

    I have trouble-shot days before that by typing. I googled this problem both

    in the HP forum and out through Google. What I'm trying to make is so basic and...

    I dare say, 'simple', that I can't believe is not possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    The print head is the rectangular silver part at the bottom of the cartridge on this particular model.  It would seem that the question be electronic printer failed, but before you give up, please try soaking in hot water with one of the printheads. It is possible for the accumulation of ink on the print heads to leave a stain on the fabric during the test, this could be confused with the strong task resulting from a cartridge to work.

    Scan pictures into my a6683w HP Vista in black and white, but the documents still scan in color.

    Hello there ingridt, welcome to the Forums!

    I noticed your post on the scans of your Photosmart 6510, scan to your system from Vista in black and white. I want to offer my suggestions to you to see if they can help you with this.

    First of all, try to launch the HP print and Scan Doctor who is used to fix the printing and scanning problems. You choose the option "Scanning" when the tool is run. It will inform you if the software is completely installed, or if there is a problem, it can not correct. If it detects an error and shows you a red 'X', I suggest then uninstall and reinstall.

    Here are some links to help with uninstalling and reinstalling if you happen to do these steps.

    1. uninstalling the printer software

    2. restart your PC

    3 reinstall: Photosmart HP 6510 e-All-in-One Printer - B211a

    Try a scan now and let me know how make you out!

    Good luck!
