Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

Hello,

 

I'm using the samsung chromebook and that is precisely why I chose HP wireless printer with eprint.  However, how do I go about scanning in items to Google Drive, email, hpconnected or any of the above?

Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

The limiting factor here is Chromebook, it doesn't include the drivers. If it's an e-All-in-One, you can just type the ip address in the browser address bar and scan that way. Or if the AiO has a card slot or usb mass storage support, can scan directly to a SD card/usb thumb drive, etc.

Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

I have a new Chromebook and an M1212NF MFP that is about 2 years old.  I upgraded the firmware and activated ePrint and I can print with no issues from the Chromebook.

 

But how can I scan to the chromebook?  For some reason, the network interface doesn't allow me to scan from a browser, and I can't seem to scan directly from the machine.  

 

Am I missing something?

Hi yacht_boy,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Forums.

 

With a Chromebook there are no scanning apps available.  I have included a link to your user guide, on page 98 it lists the 3 methods that are supported.

Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

Thanks for the reply, but those 3 options are just "use a mac or windows machine." Is there really nothing HP can do to make its machines scan on the chromebook? It's just running Linux after all. Can it be that hard to install a virtual driver of hplip or something similar?

Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

My phone doesn't have a document feeder, 600 dpi scanner, and the ability to scan two sides.

I found an easy solution!

Dowload the HP All-in-One Remote app to your Smartphone. If you're printer is on, it will automatically connect and let you scan. Then I emailed myself the scanned document for editing.

Wireless Scanning using Chromebook

Scanning through a browser with a HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a is a fail. After scanning, it says to click the Save button that doesn't exist. Needs to be fixed. hp 8600 scan.jpg
