Hi,

 

Thanks for using the forum.  We'll attempt to resolve your problem by using the Webscan.

 

First, we assume that your printer is installed via Network (either via Wireless or Ethernet connection)

  1. Go to your printer and determine the IP address of printer e.g.  15.37.213.128
  2. Key the priner's IP address into your Internet Explorer web browser
  3. Go to Scan, there should be a Webscan option. If it says "You cannot use this function....", you'll need to enable it.
  4. Enabling Webscan : Click on "Settings"> "Security">"Adminstrator Settings" (just "Continue" if there are any warnings regarding Certificates)
  5. Under "Administrator Settings", there should be a "Webscan" option, make sure that is "Checked" and "Apply" or "Save" your settings.
  6. Go back to Scan and you should be able to see the options to Scan. Select "Document Source" to be "ADF", "Document Type" to be PDF and "Start Scan"!
  7. Once scanning is done, Right-click and save your file to the desired destination.

 

 

A video that shows this can be found here: (it's for Chromebook, but Webscan applies to any OS)
