HP Laserjet Pro MFP M130NW Cannot Scan Multiple Pages

HP Recommended
LaserJet Pro MFP M130NW
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I am trying to scan multiple sheets from the feeding tray and when I go into the HP Easy Scan software and open the settings options, Flatbed is the option in the "Source" menu and that menu is also greyed out and won't allow changes.  How can I fix this or is this a flatbed only scanner?  I have just purchased this and multi page feeding is really what I need.  If this one won't do it, which model will?

@Logun

 

Welcome to the HP Forums. I would be happy to help you with your HP LaserJet Pro MFP M130nw printer. I understand that you are unable to scan multiple pagesand you have already done some preliminary troubleshooting. 

  • Double-click the icon for your printer, click Print & Scan, and then click Scan a Document.
  • Select the appropriate scan option for the item you are scanning.
  • Click Scan. A preview of the scan will display.
  • Click the Plus sign (+) on the left side of the window to scan additional pages.
  • Click Save to capture the scanned file 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Cheers.

SandyTech20, please re-read my original question.  I stated that I am trying to use the paper tray to  feed multiple pages to be scanned.  

 

  I am not having any issue manually loading multiple documents for scanning using the flatbed scanner part.  

 

The "source" option in "settings" is grayed out and "flatbed" is the option in the grayed out area.

 

  How can I change the "source" to paper tray to auto feed instead of having to manually scan each individual page of a multi-page document on the flatbed scanner?  Or is that even an option on this model?

Hi! @Logun, I am the MrRobot. It looks like you were interacting with @sandytechy20, but he is out of the office today so I'll take over from here.

 

I appreciate your efforts for trying out the steps.

 

Are you able to make a copy from the flatbed scanner?

 

Please try the steps recommended below and check if it helps.

 

Get the IP address from the printer (print a configuration report and look for the IPV4)
 
Then enter the IP address into a web browser go to scan > scan to network folder > click on edit on the profile that you want to change and at the bottom, you will be able to customize the following 

 

That one will change any new scan to that folder/profile and will be the new default 
 
Now for instance, if want you want to do its a temporary change for let's say one scan you do can perform that from the printer  try this
 
scan > scan to network folder > select your profile/folder, you will get a screen that has all your current settings saved from before (default settings) you have two buttons settings and scan 
 
Go to settings from there you will be able to customize the following items, scan file type (JPEG/PDF), scan resolution, scan paper size, scan source, filename prefix, output color from that menu you will have the opportunity to make those changes for new default 
 

 

Let me know if this helps!

Have a great day ahead! 🙂

Mr Robot

 

  I have no issue scanning or making copies from the flatbed scanner.  

 

I NEED TO FEED MULTIPLE DOCUMENTS FROM THE PAPER TRAY , NOT LOAD SINGLE DOCUMENTS BY HAND ON TO THE FLATBED SCANNER.  

 

I USE THE HP SCAN software

 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ME A STRAIGHT ANSWER TO MY QUESTIONS BELOW:

 

1)  CAN THIS MODEL PRINTER/COPIER/SCANNER FEED FROM THE PAPER TRAY TO SCAN MULTIPLE PAGES OR NOT?  

 

2) IF IT CAN BE DONE, THEN HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THIS USING THE HP SCAN SOFTWARE?

 

When I type in the IP address of the printer, it takes me to the "Home" page for the printer.  The tabs I see are the following: "Home", "System", "Print", "Copy", "Networking", "HP Web Services".  

 

  I do not see "Scan" anywhere on the "Home" tab page, so I'm unable to follow the instructions you've given below.  THIS IS FOR A MAC NOT A PC.

 

On the printer itself my options are:

 

Setup Menu:

 

Web Services

Reports, Self

Diagnostics

System Setup

Service

Network Setup

Quick Forms 

 

  Please help.

@Logun, Thanks your quick response and time.

 

I appreciate your efforts for trying out the steps.

 

I have checked the printer specifications and your printer does not have ADF to scan multiple pages.

 

So you cannot scan multiple pages using this printer.

 

Refer the printer specifications page to know more information.

 

 

Have a great day ahead

Take Care! 🙂

Can I scan multiple pages from my iMac to my HP Laserjet Pro MFP M130nw?

If so, how can this be done?

@caseyd1, Thanks for your response and time.

 

I appreciate your efforts for trying out the steps.

 

You cannot scan multiple pages even using an iMac, as there is no ADF (Automatic document feeder) on the printer to scan multiple pages.

 

 

Refer the printer specifications page to know more information.

 

 

 

Hope this answers your query!

Take Care! 🙂
