  • My HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One Printer does not scan the black and white film strips or slides.

    This problem occurred recently. Previously, the scanner accepted slides and strips of black and white film and scanned them without any problem. Since I've updated the OS on my iMac (I am currently using OS X 10.6.8), I contacted Applecare because I thought that it was possible that my current operating system might have some incompatibilities with the C8180. 'Expert' AppleCare then accompanied me by a uninstall/reinstall, but it has not solved the problem. AppleCare said then that the problem is no doubt HP hardware failure. I find it quite peculiar since the scanner otherwise Applecare analysis works and there is no problem with respect it print or copy.

    Hi, JAOC,.

    Your C8180 can scan slides or films fixed on the memory card.  This will allow you to test the scanning equipment.

  • Photosmart HP 6520: HP 6520 scanning in black and white


    My HP 6520 scans in color black and white docs.  I read the various messages from others who have similar problems and have downloaded the latest drivers on the Apple site.   When I open the HP utility and navigate to "Scan to computer" and 'Modify tasks analysis' I find the menu only 2 items I can interact with are "Document (PDF)" and "Photo (JPEG).

    When I press the button Edit, I get a submenu that I can develop to show the type of device, the presets and exit.  When I select the "show details" button, I get only one bar for me to choose the quality in which items can be scanned.  I don't see the Mode option that should allow me to select Save in both black and white.

    Please can you help me with a few tracks here - thanks in advance.

    Hi Waterboy71

    I carried out the tasks that you recommended and there is a degree of progress, while getting only not in a fully satisfactory place.

    Certainly the HPScan shortcut on the desktop icon will allow the scans for color photos but the documents in PDF format are in black and white.

    However, if I take the longest walk around the system, select the printer in the printer options and select scanner in that, a submenu opens and I can propose to scan in color, if its for documents or pictures.

    Is not as simple as it used to be, as I didn't have to do that before - maybe it's a result of a system of 'upgrade' somewhere along the way.

    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

    Hi len,

    You can choose "Scan to PDF"? I wonder if the PDF will scan in color. Let me know what happens!

    In addition, instead of scanning from the printers of the unit Panel, you scan from the printer software I was alluding in messages earlier? Scan from the software on your PC will give you all of the scan options.

    Take care

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

    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

  • OfficeJet 6700 scan enlarges doc in jpg format. Scan PDF is in black and white

    I have a new HP Officejet 6700. My operating system is Mac OS X v8.5.8.

    I went to scan a document as a jpg file and it scanned and was recorded in my computer (wireless).

    The problem is that all the documents have been enlarged during the process, therefore, only about 1/3 of the document is scanned. How can I reduce the scan so that the entire document (8 "x 10") is visible in the scanned jpg?

    Also note that this enlargement is not the case when recording in pdf format, but the analysis is the only black and white, not the color of my document was. The scan jpg, although enlarged, was at least in color. Help! THX.

  • My HP photosmart 6510e all-in-one scanning pictures in black and white but the docs are still in color.

    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!

    Thank you.

  • HP officejet pro 8500 a910 does give me the option of printing in black and white on a mac.

    I would like to create a new preset using black and white or grayscale for an a910 8500 but it doesn't seem to be a way to specify black and white or grayscale in the dialog box print when printing from an application. Also, when I go to the presets dialog show I can't change all the settings for a custom preset.

    very confusing dialog boxes. It doesn't seem to be a way to access the dialog box presets without being in a print in an application dialog box.

    I'm running OS X 10.7.3



    Follow the steps below to print using black ink only:

    1. from the application used to print, click the file menu and select print. The print window is displayed.
    NOTE: The print window might be minimized: click Show details to display all available parameters.

    2. to access the color options, click in the area of selection below, listed as the name of the program (e.g. TextEdit)
    Will appear as Copies & Pages within Microsoft Office applications.

    3. Select Paper Type/quality in the menu dropdown.

    4. click on the triangle next to color Options to the settings.

    5. set the color to Grayscalefield.

    6. adjust the Grayscale in Black cartridge only.

    You can save the settings for later use by clicking preset > save current settings as preset.
