Question about PC Desktops

We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I am not sure how. I was hoping to get some assistants or some direction. Thanks Kammy Arment

The only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

Document Type
Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
Document Size
Select the size of document to be scanned.
Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
Reference See the section below for details.
Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
Regards, and thank you for using fixya.

I have a Lexmark X4875 printer/scanner. I don't have the know-how to use the scanner. the printer is connected to my desk top and works fine but i don't know how to scan and save the image


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

Here's how to use the scanner for your Lexmark X4875 (Basic scanning) :
  • Ensure that both the computer and printer are connected and turned on
  • Load a document facedown on scanner glass
  • From the printer control panel press down or up arrow until "Scan" is highlighted
  • Press the "Action" button
For your convenience, I have included Lexmark's user guide through the below link:

My scanner is not working, new printer only 3 mos old


you mentioned the scanner isn't working and the printer is only 3 months old. i'm guessing it's a combo scanner/printer. go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for your scanner then install them.

Canon scanner, when I scan and open doc in office word its all jumbled and I cant edit.System Windows Vista home prem. thanks


Check the resolution of your scanner because this would effect what you see on your computer monitor. Maybe using a lower resolution would work for you or try scanning complex images as pictures. Good Luck

Problem installing canon mp610 on my hp dv6113tx laptop running windows xp


if it worked on your desktop, it means that the printer is not faulty. could be issues on your laptop. have you tried plugging it into a different USB port on your laptop? try all the ports, one of them should work. if not, then there may be something wrong with the way you are installing the printer driver to your laptop. double check if you're doing everything correctly by following on-screen instructions carefully
