How to Scan a Document Using Kodak ESP All-in-One

by A.J. Andrews

The Kodak ESP series of multi-function scanners, printers and copiers employs a simple four-directional control panel and screen to facilitate the scanning process. An ESP requires only a few steps to send scanned data to the destination drive. Scan a document in just a few steps.


Open the Kodak Home Center program and select the destination drive for the scanned document.


Position the document on the front right corner of the scanner glass and press “Menu” on the ESP control panel.


Press the down-arrow button on the ESP control panel until “Scan” highlights on the screen. Press “OK.”


Press the down-arrow button until “Scan To” highlights. Select “USB Connected Computer and press “OK.” If scanning a picture, press the down-arrow button until “Scan What” highlights and select “Picture.” Otherwise, your default “Scan What” selection is “Document.”


Press the down-arrow button until “Scan Destination” highlights. Press the left-arrow and right-arrow as needed until the program you want to open the scanned document with highlights.


Press the “Start” button.” Follow your computer’s on-screen prompts to complete the scan.
