by T.M. Wit

The HP 6500 is a combination printer, scanner and fax machine designed by the Hewlett Packard corporation. If you have a document you wish to scan, you can do so on the HP 6500. Scanning a document creates a digital image of that document that can be saved as a file on your computer. You can scan a document on your HP 6500 in about five minutes.

Turn on your HP 6500.

Lift up the lid located immediately above the base of your HP 6500.

Place the document you want to scan in on the scanning tray, then close the lid.

Press the button labeled "Scan," and allow the scanning process to complete.
