How to Scan a Picture on an All-in-One Printer

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Computer
* All-in-one printer

1. Blow the dust from your scanner and printing area with canned air. Clean the scanner bed and the underside of the document lid with a damp, lint-free cloth before scanning.
2.
Get your computer and all-in-one printer turned on and talking to each other. Open the scanning software on your computer if needed. If not, you can use the controls on your printer to run the show.
3.
Lay the picture to be scanned face-down on the glass. Square up the photo using the guides that are usually located along the edges of the scanning bed.
4. Close the lid.
5.
Go for a higher dpi (dots per inch) count if you plan on displaying the scanned image at larger-than-life size. Otherwise, you can select a lower resolution.
6. Click the scan button on your computer's scanning software window. Some all-in-one printers need you to press the scan button on the printer itself; check the manual before using.
7. Get a preview of the scanned image up on your computer monitor. This might happen automatically depending on your software settings; if not, you will have to prompt your computer to display one.
8. Correct small defects such as red-eye in the image. Save extensive changes for later with dedicated photo-editing software.
9. Accept the scan and save to your hard drive. Remember to put your picture away.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know.

Thanks,

Print un clearly


Since you didn't mention the make or model, the first general advice we can give you is to check your printer/copier manual's instructions for how to do a "cleaning cycle" on the device. If you have used it a long time and have never done this, a "deep cleaning cycle" may be necessary, Canon and HP devices often have this. If you're just getting some missing "bits and pieces" of words here and there, this may do the job.

Other things to try:
  1. Examine the print heads/cartridges to see if they are very messy/dirty. GENTLY clean around them (avoiding touching the head surface itself) to remove built-up ink or toner.
  2. Check the area around the printheads for loose dust, bits of paper, and other things things that might fall between the heads and the paper when its working, causing the print to be smudged or interrupted.
  3. If there is a lot of paper-dust and so on in the machine, GENTLY blow it out with a can of air or the like.

laptop shuts off afer 5 minutes


Sounds like your laptop might be overheating. Does it reboot successfully immediately after is shuts down after 5 minutes or does it have to sit awhile before it reboots successfully?

If you can't boot it right back up after it shuts down, then it is definitely running hot and will only boot back up successfully after it sits awhile to cool off.

Things that cause it to run hot:
1) Dust... Dust clogged in the vents, fans and around the cpu and heat sink.
2) A Fan is not working
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

For the best results you'll have to take the laptop apart to remedy the situation especially if you need to get to the Fan, CPU or Heat Sink.

You can try a can of compressed air and blow out the vents and fan area, that might work for a while but you'll be blowing the dust in. It's best to take it apart and blow the dust out.
