Photo Feeder? Hello?

hepcat "hepcat", Amazon
19 March 2010
  • Summary: Anyone know how to get the photo feeder to work these days? I think I have the latest driver, but I cannot find any way to run the photo feeder at all. I've used it in the past with some success (pre 10.3).

Every 2nd Photo Jams

Amazon
30 December 2003
  • Summary: Well, bought the scanner new. Called HP tech support when it would jam on every photo in the APF. Tech support sent a replacement APF Next Day Air. New feeder works better, but still jams on the 2nd photo (no matter how many are in the feeder) which appears to be more likely a software problem since...

I made a mistake!

  • Summary: I purchased this scanner on the extremely high recommendation of the sales rep who told me it is the "ultimate" scanner; after installing the software & uninstalling the software a few times, I called the NONTOLL-FREE HP Help LIne.

Scanner good but gadgets disappoint

Stuart Williamson, Amazon
1 March 2003
  • Summary: I would not recommend this product. Setup was easy on Windows XP but the main problems are with the 'gadgets'. The auto photo feeder (APF) is little more than a plastic toy. It left fine parallel score marks (scratches) along the direction of glossy photos as they were scanned.

  • Summary: I bought this unit, and was pretty excited about the photo feeder. Unfortunately it didn't work. The feeder would make noises but would never grab any photos. I tried chatting with HPs support over the internet. It was horrible.

Not Worth the [money] for APF

Mid MO Mom, Amazon
18 January 2003
  • Summary: If you are interested in the photo feeder, it does not save time, every 3-4 photos it would show a jam (but there was no jam) I would have to reset the photos and start again. Cust support was no help. Luckily I [was able to] exchange it for another one, I had the same problems with it.

Fast, high quality scans, but....

MADman "~~~", Amazon
18 January 2003
  • Summary: I bought this primarily for the automatic photo feeder. It was great to be able to put in a stack of photos (I went up to 25 at a time) and walk away while it scanned. Had only one or two times when the feeder jammed; wished it would have allowed continuing after clearing the jam instead of stopping...
