OfficeJet Pro 9015 Scan at 1200 dpi possible?

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro 9015
Linux

The specs say that the OfficeJet 9015 can scan at 1200 dpi.  I most commonly scan either to a shared disk or a USB stick while standing at the printer, but the printer only gives me up to 600 dpi as options.  How can I get 1200 dpi? 

 

Also is the printer unable to deal with EXFAT formatted large size memory sticks? 

 

The other way I scan sometimes is with GIMP using XSane and this only gives me the option of 300 dpi.  I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that previously with my dead HP 8610.  Any solution to this problem?

Use software on the computer to access the higher DPI settings.

 

For example,

Skanlite offers scan option at 1200 DPI

Sample setup

Linux_SkanLite_1Linux_SkanLite_1

 

Also consider:

Simple-Scan software

 

 

I cannot offer advice on the memory stick.

I tried installing skanlite and it does indeed offer the 1200 dpi option.  I also found that in GIMP with the Xsane plugin that it makes a difference which version of the printer I choose.  I am given the option of

 

Device dialog

escl: printer IP

hpaio: printer name and IP

 

If I select Device dialog it waits for a while and gives me the choice of the other two.  If I select hpaio then I get resolution only up to 300dpi.  If I select escl then I am offered 1200 dpi as an option.  It does work, but not as well as it did with the OfficeJet   8610.  When the printer is scanning the old printer showed a progress bar.  The new one just sits and does nothing until the scan is done, so it seems like it's hung.

 

Skanlite, it turns out, also offers the same two options and the reason it worked was that it defaulted to escl.  If I select the hpaio it also maxes out at 300 dpi. 

 

I tried installing sane (how this is different from xsane or ksane I don't know) and xscanimage appeared as a gimp plugin.  It seems to operate the same way as the xsane plugin but with fewer options.  One nice thing about the xsane plugin is options for adjusting the color. 

 

So what are escl and hpaio?  If the second one doesn't work...can I turn it off somehow so the printer doesn't provide it? 

 

And then we have the other question:  is it really only possible to scan at 1200 dpi if I use a computer?  What if I want to scan a document without a computer?  We did this all the time with the 8610 and could do 1200 dpi at the printer by selecting that option on the printer's display.

I don't use Linux often enough to offer specific photo printing / editing advice.

 

Yes, the answer is, in fact, you must use software on your device / computer / PC to scan at the highest DPI.

 

If you want to scan a document from the printer, you may use WebScan - the application does not require additional software on the computer - Webscan does not scan at 1200.

 

Example

Webscan – located in the Embedded Web Server (EWS) – No additional software

NOTE:  Webscan feature  is not available on Laser printers

 

If the printer is on the network,

If the EWS feature is available on your printer,

 

First Time Use Only:  Enable Webscan

  • Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar
  • Tab Settings > Security > Administrator Settings > Enable >> Check box next to Webscan
  • Click Apply to save any changes

 

Next

  • Tab Scan > Webscan 
  • Set up Webscan the way you want it - for example, set the Source to ADF
  • Click Start Scan to scan your document / image using Webscan
  • After the scan is complete, Save the scan to your computer.

No web app is needed to scan without a computer.  You can walk up to the scanner and press scan.  You can scan onto a USB stick inserted, or you can scan to a network drive.   But it's annoying that you can't set the highest DPI when scanning this way.  I don't understand why the limit.

It's not a "mechanical limitation" that you can only scan at 1200 dpi in software from a computer across the room.  It's a bizarre software limitation.
