Make sure to install the full feature software in order to get all the product features.
Before installing the software, make sure to remove the configured device:
- Enter Control Panel > Devices and Printers.
- Right click the HP PSV 1400 Series icon, select Remove Device.
- Unplug the USB cable from the printer.
- Reboot your PC.
- Install the Full Feature software below:
Note: Do not plug the USB before prompted to do so during the software installation.
Scan using HP Solution Center, PDF will appear within the Scan Document options.

I have an HP Officejet 6210 All-in-one and I can't scan to PDF either. I've removed the icons, unplugged the USB from the printer, rebooted and then plugged in the printer. And I still can't scan to PDF. Currently I use Windows Scan & Fax, would I use a different program?

I tried what you suggested and reiinstalled from the link you provided. It still won't allow me to scan to a
pdf. I do have the disc that I used on my old XP. Maybe I need to install from that? This is frustrating.
Any ideas? I am running Windows 8.1.

I have a PCS2210 all in one and I cannot scan to PDF either. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and all accompanying software, but I still can't find anything that allows me to scan to pdf. jpeg works just fine, so everything I scan (documents etc) go through as photos. Please help, I am getting very frustrated.

I keep going into the preferences and changing letter to legal, however it will not change the paper size, and when I go back and check, despite the fact that I have chosen legal, it shows 'paper available - letter'.
Also in Exel, I have a form that I print regularly that has 14 gridlines on it. Despite the fact that I have chosen to print gridlines, it only prints 4 out of 14. And the exact same 4 lines everytime. Nothing I do seems to fix this problem.
Other than that it works well, but it is getting very annoying not being able to print properly
