Question about Canon Printers & Copiers

Hi,I have got a Canon,smartbase MPC 400 printer/scanner. My question is: How can I scan a document straight to a PDF file,because it only gives me options for TIF,BMP and JPEG. I have downloaded a TIF to PDF converter but it increases file size by about 4 times and I cant send the email then. Can you advise please?

I'm using an MP780. Usually when I scan an image to jpeg I press START, CANON, SCANGEAR STARTER. This open a window to ScanGear MP. Since I use the Advance Tab I can set the DPI and whatever outputs. The DPI rsolution will determine the size of the file also. When it is finished scanning it goes to the next window which has Save As Type and Save Scanned Image to. Save As Type is where you can choose JPG or TIFF or BMP. Hope this helps.

Hi,

"Ink Detection Waste Ink Tank Full"
You need to replace the ink pad and reset the eepron counter to 0. For dissasembly (so you can replace the ink pad) you can purchase the service manual from 2manuals.com for $9 and download it.

To reset it
PRESS
ADITIONAL FUNCTIONS
SCAN
COPY
SCAN
scroll to TESTMODE
scroll to PRINTER TEST
scroll to EEPROM CLEAR
and the press the numeric key 3 or and keys.
Select INK COUNT, and then press the
numeric key 0 or and keys to reset the waste ink capacity.
Press the [Stop/Reset] key and then the
[ON/OFF] key to end the test mode.

If you find this too difficult, take it to your nearest Canon Repair Place.

Please do this at your own risk, there is always a small chance that you might mess up and break your printer.


With Regards,

How do u use the scanner on the canon pixma mx310 all in one printer?


If you load the documents and press the SCAN button, the file will be save directly to the pc as pdf file.

You can use the scanner option on the control panel to scan the documents and save as jpeg file. How? Go on Start...click Control Panel...then select Scanners/Cameras..click next and follow instructions..

How do I add multiple pages to one scanned doucment?


Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

How to scan a document using Canon MX310 to Microsoft Word


you can try it by using the scanner option on the control panel. If you are using windows operating system, go on start menu, select control panel and double click scanners & cameras. Double click the scanner online and start scanning the documents. Save it in the format you want but it is usually default as jpeg.

scanned documents usually saved as .pdf file if you run the scan option directly on the printer. By pressing the SCAN button the printer. So do not use this option if you do not want the documents to be saved as pdf files.

Smartbase MP360 Scanner Not Identified by MS Vista


One thing to check and be sure of is that your printer cable (USB) is definately a USB 2.0 cable. Canon have an issue with their printers with scanners in that the data flow sometimes isn't sufficient when an older USB cable is used. The slightest drop of data on startup or during scanning will cause a stop.

Worth trying and has sometimes solved the problem for my customers.
