Starting a Scan Using the Product Control Panel

You can scan an image to your computer or to a USB device using your product's control panel buttons.

Your product automatically selects suitable default scan settings, but you can view or change them as necessary.

  1. Make sure you installed the product software and connected the product to your computer or network.
    Note: With Mac OS X 10.6/10.7, you must connect your product with a USB cable to scan using the buttons.
  2. Press the  Scan button. The scan options are displayed:

  3. Select the scan option you want.
    • Scan to USB Device saves your scan file on a USB flash drive or other device and lets you select the file format, resolution, and other settings.
    • Scan to PC saves your scan as a JPEG file to your computer or as an image capture in Mac OS X 10.6/10.7.
    • Scan to PC (PDF) saves your scan as a PDF file to your computer or as an image capture in Mac OS X 10.6/10.7.
    • Scan to PC (Email) scans your original and attaches it to a message in your e-mail program. You can select the e-mail program you want to use and resize your image, if necessary, from an option screen on your computer.
      Note: This works with MAPI-type email such as Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Mac Mail, and Entourage, but not web-based email such as Gmail.
    • Scan to PC (WSD) lets you manage wireless scanning in Windows 7 or Windows Vista (English only).
      Note: To use this feature, you must first set up WSD (Web Services for Devices) on the computer you want to scan to.
  4. To select 2-sided scanning to your computer (for documents in the ADF), press the  Menu button, select Scan Settings, select 2-Sided Scanning, then select On. Press the OK button.
  5. To scan to your computer, you first need to select how you connected your product to your computer:
    • If your product is connected directly to your computer with a USB cable, select USB Connection.
    • If your product is connected to your computer over a network, select the computer name from the list.
  6. If necessary, press one of the  Start buttons to start scanning.
