Overview of the HP software
The HP Director software provides easy access to the software applications, default settings, status, and on-screen help for your HP device. By using the HP Director software, you can scan various types of originals (pictures, slides, negatives, and documents), make copies, view and print images, go to the HP Shopping website, and update your HP software. The HP Image Zone software provides tools for managing your still photos, scanned images, and video clips. You can easily edit and print your images, use them in various projects, and share them with family and friends. Using the HP scanning software, you can scan items such as pictures, slides, negatives, and documents, and then save them or send them to a destination of your choice (such as a software application or file). The software gives you the option of previewing images before the final scan takes place. While previewing, you can adjust the image to achieve the final effect that you want. The software also enables you to configure scan settings. The HP Copy software sends scanned images directly to your printer.
For more information on the HP software, see the HP Director software onscreen help. To access the on-screen help in the HP Director software: 1 Do one of the following: a b c 2 On the Windows desktop, double-click the HP Director icon ( ). In the system tray at the far right of the Windows taskbar, double-click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon.

Scanner and accessories overview
This section presents an overview of the scanner and the transparent materials adapter (TMA).
Description Scans pictures and documents from the scanner glass, and scans slides and negatives from the TMA. Scans from the glass directly to the default printer to make copies. Scans a photo and enables you to 1) share it in e-mail; 2) create an album on the HP website; or 3) order professionalquality prints. (Not all services are available in all regions or for all operating systems.) Turns off the scanner lamp and puts the scanner in low-power mode.
HP Instant Share
Transparent materials adapter (TMA) You can use the transparent materials adapter (TMA) to scan 35 mm slides and negatives. For more information about the TMA, see "Scan slides and negatives" in the HP Scanjet 4600 series on-screen help.
Note Macintosh users, see the HP Image Zone software on-screen help for information about scanning procedures. Tip High resolution is usually only necessary when attempting to increase the size of very small images (for instance, scanning a stamp-sized image, or scanning 35 mm negatives or color slides and enlarging them to A4 size). In most cases, optimal scanning can be achieved by adjusting the resolution of the scan to a resolution appropriate for the intended use of the image. Scanning at a resolution higher than necessary only increases your file size, slows down printing, and in some cases makes the image impossible to print on a particular printer. For more information, open the HP Director software, select your scanner in the Select Device list, click Help, and in the HP Image Zone software on-screen help, see the HP Scanjet scanner on-screen help. You can start scanning in one of three ways: Scan from the scanner's buttons
The buttons on the scanner provide shortcuts to frequently used scanning functions, such as scanning pictures, slides, negatives, and documents. See Scanner and accessories overview. Scan from the HP Director software Scan from the HP Director software when you want more control of your scan, such as when you want to preview the image before the final scan. To start the HP Director software, double-click the HP Director icon ( ) on the desktop. The HP Director window appears. From this window you can scan, view, or print images, use on-screen help, and more. If the HP Director icon ( ) is not on the desktop, on the Start menu, point to Programs or All Programs, point to HP, and then click HP Director. Scan from other applications You can bring an image directly into an open file in one of your applications if the application is TWAIN or WIA-compliant. Generally, the application is compliant if it has an option such as Acquire, Scan, or Import New Object. If you are unsure whether the application is compliant or what the option is, see the documentation for that application.
Overview of positioning items to scan
Because of the unique design of the HP Scanjet 4600 series scanner, this section describes how to position different types of items with the scanner.
Scanning side and viewing side
Scanning side ( ): The scanning side has a dark frame around the glass, which always faces the item being scanned. The scanner lamp shines through this side when scanning. Keep the scanning side clean. Viewing side ( ): The viewing side has a light frame around the glass, which shows the HP logo and product name. You can see the item to scan face up through the glass as you look at the viewing side. The scanner lamp shines away from this side when scanning. Fingerprints and dust on the viewing side do not affect scanning quality.
Position the item face down and face up
You can scan pictures and documents in one of two positions: with the item face down or with the item face up. Position the item face down When scanning an item face down, remove the scanner from the holder and lay it on a flat surface, scanning side (dark frame) up ( ). Then place the item (for example, a book) printed side down on the glass.
Tip The side with the dark frame always faces the item you are scanning. Position the item face up When scanning an item face up, place the scanner viewing side (light frame) up ( ) on the item. You can see the picture or text through the scanner glass. Some examples are: With the scanner in the holder, scan a single document or photo. With the scanner removed from the holder, scan a photo lying on the desk. With the scanner removed from the holder, scan an item that is larger than the scanning glass. With the scanner removed from the holder, scan a photo hanging on the wall.
Position a picture or document for scanning on the desk
Remove the scanner from the holder: a b If you have a horizontal holder, remove the scanner by pressing down on one tab on the hinge and then lifting the scanner off the holder. If you have a vertical holder, remove the scanner by lifting it off the holder. ). You can
Place the scanner on the item, viewing side (light frame) up ( see the document through the scanner glass.
Scan pictures and documents
Use the Scan button ( ) to scan pictures and documents.
Note Macintosh users, see the HP Image Zone software Help for information about scanning procedures. 3 Position the item on the scanner. For more information, see Positioning items before scanning. Press the Scan button ( ). In the dialog box that appears, select: a Picture if you are scanning a printed photograph, graphic, slide, or negative. Scanned pictures appear in the HP Image Zone software by default. Document if you are scanning text, both text and graphics, or any text that you want to edit later. For more information on scanning text to edit, see Scanning text for editing. Scanned documents appear in the specified destination.
Follow the instructions on the screen to finish scanning.
The scanned items appear in the destination specified. To simplify scanning, the software does not prompt you to preview the picture when you use the Scan button ( ) on the scanner. If you want to preview the scanned picture, select the Show Preview check box on the screen, or begin the scan from the HP Director software. The HP Scanning software can automatically correct your pictures or restore faded colors in old pictures. The preview setting must be on to use this feature. To turn picture correction on or off, select Automatically Correct Photos in the Basic menu of the HP Scanning software, and then select the Restore Faded Color check box.
Scanning text for editing
The scanner uses optical character recognition (OCR) software to convert text on a page to text that you can edit on your computer. The OCR software is installed automatically when you install the HP Image Zone software. To select OCR settings, complete the following steps: Open the HP Director software. Click Settings, click Scan Preferences, and then select Button Settings. Note If you are starting the scan from the scanner button, click the Scan button tab. If you are starting the scan from the HP Director software, click the Scan Document button (Director) tab. 3 Click Modify Scan Document Settings, and then click the Editable Text Settings tab. Two formatting options are available: Retain page formatting. When you select this option, the text blocks, tables, and graphics are recreated in the same place, and the word and paragraph formatting are maintained. This might make editing more difficult because the software saves the columns in frames, with no text flow from one column to the next. Select the Use columns when
possible check box to retain columns that are easier to edit. Most users choose this option. The text flows from one column to the next, allowing for easier editing. Do not retain page format. Select this option for flowed text. This creates a file with continuous text. This is recommended for text that you want to edit and reformat for other purposes.
Scanned text might not appear on your computer exactly as it appeared on the original, especially if the original contains faint or smudged text. For example, some characters might be incorrect or missing. As you edit the text, compare the scanned text against the original, and then make corrections as necessary.
Use the Copy button ( ) on the scanner to scan an item and send it directly to a printer to make copies. Note Macintosh users, see the HP Image Zone software Help for information about copying procedures. 3 Position the item on the scanner. For more information see Positioning items before scanning. Press the Copy button ( ) on the scanner. A message appears that shows the copy progress. If you want to increase the number of copies, lighten or darken the copies, reduce or enlarge them, or change printer settings, click Cancel in the Copy in Progress dialog box. You can then make changes to settings in the HP Copying software.
You can also make copies from the HP Director software. For more information, see the HP Image Zone software on-screen help.
Share a scanned photo using HP Instant Share
Use the HP Instant Share button ( ) on the scanner to share scanned photos with family and friends. You can easily 1) send someone an e-mail with thumbnails and links to your photos that are stored on a secure HP websiteno more attachments; 2) upload photos to the HP Photo website to create online photo albums; or 3) order professional-quality prints from an HP partner web site. (Not all services are available in all regions or for all operating systems.) Note 1 Macintosh users, see the HP Image Zone software on-screen Help for information about using the HP Instant Share button. Note 2 Use the HP Instant Share button ( ) to scan and share only photos. If you want to scan and share a document, use the Scan button ( ) on the scanner. Your computer must be connected to the Internet to use HP Instant Share. 1 Position the original photo on the scanner. For more information, see Positioning items before scanning.
Place the scanner with the viewing side (light frame) up ( ) on the item to scan. Place the scanner so you can see the upper left portion of the item through the scanner, using the frame around the scanner glass to position the item. Press the Scan button ( ) on the scanner. In the dialog box that appears, select: a b Picture if you are scanning a photograph or other artwork. Document if you are scanning text or both text and graphics. You must select No when asked Scan for Editable Text (OCR)?
Select Panorama Maker as the destination, and click Scan in the dialog box. The item is scanned. Note If you see a preview dialog now, this procedure will not work as documented. See Change settings to turn preview off. Align the scanner on the next section of the item. Overlap the sections by at least 1.3 mm (1/2 inch). Press the Scan button ( ) on the scanner. Continue to scan each section of the item until you are done. When you have finished scanning the sections, click Done in the dialog box on the computer screen. Panorama Maker automatically starts. All the scanned sections are sent to Panorama Maker.
In the Panorama Maker software, arrange the images in the correct order and follow the on-screen instructions. See the Panorama Maker Help for instructions. If you scanned a text document and want to use optical character recognition (OCR) to make the scanned document editable, then from Panorama Maker, save the combined image as a TIFF file, and then import the TIFF file into the ReadIris Pro software to perform OCR conversion.
Use the power save button
The scanner lamp turns off automatically after approximately 15 minutes. However, you may want to manually turn off the lamp when you have finished using the scanner. To turn off the scanner lamp and put the scanner in low-power mode, press the Power Save button ( ). To use the scanner again, start a scan either from a scanner button or from the HP Director software. After a short warm-up cycle, the scan begins.
You can customize many features of your HP Scanjet scanner, including the scanner button settings, previewing of images, and other preferences. Change settings from the HP Director software When you use the scanner buttons or the HP Director software, the scanner uses settings optimized for the scanned original type, such as a photograph. You can change scan settings from the Settings menu in the HP Director software, including button settings, scanning preferences, and other settings. To change settings, start the HP Director software, and then click Settings. Turn Preview Image on or off Note Macintosh users, see the HP Director software on-screen Help for information about turning preview on or off. 1 Double-click the HP Director icon ( ) on your desktop. Or, on the taskbar, click Start, point to Programs or All Programs, point to HP, and then click HP Director. When the HP Director opens, make sure that your HP scanner is selected in the Select Device list. On the Settings menu, point to Scan Settings & Preferences, and then click Button Settings. The Button Settings dialog box, which has a tab for each configurable button, opens. Click the tab that corresponds to the button that you want to set. Select or clear the preview button setting for the button. When you are satisfied with the settings, click OK.
Care and maintenance
Occasional cleaning of your scanner helps ensure optimal performance. The amount of care necessary depends upon several factors, including the amount of use and the environment. You should perform routine cleaning as necessary. Caution Avoid placing items with sharp edges in the scanner. Doing so can damage the scanner. Before placing an item on the scanner glass, make sure the item is free of wet glue, correction fluid, or other substances that can be transferred to the glass.
Clean the scanner glass
Note Dust and fingerprints affect scanning quality only on the scanning side (dark frame) of the scanner. Disconnect the combination USB and power cable from the scanner. Clean the glass using a soft, lint-free cloth sprayed with a mild glass cleaner. Caution Use only glass cleaner. Avoid abrasives, acetone, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride, all of which can damage the scanner glass. Avoid isopropyl alcohol because it can leave streaks on the glass. Do not spray the glass cleaner directly on the glass. If too much glass cleaner is applied, the cleaner could run to the edges and damage the scanner. Dry the scanner glass using a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. When finished, reconnect the combination USB and power cable to the scanner.
Clean the transparent materials adapter
If you have a transparent materials adapter for scanning slides and negatives, clean the window in the door and the light window using a slightly-damp, soft, lintfree cloth.
Store the scanner
To prevent scratches on the scanning side of the scanner, store the scanner in the holder provided. Tip When not in use, use the scanner to display a favorite photo.
This section contains solutions for potential issues with the scanner and the transparent materials adapter (TMA).
Frequently asked questions
This section provides answers to common questions about your HP scanner.
How do I test my scanner hardware if I think there may be a problem?
If you think the scanner has a hardware problem, verify that the cables are firmly connected to the scanner, the computer, and the power source.
