Question about Brother MFC-7820N Printer

1 Answer

Scan views fine; prints fuzzy

Scanning any document.
Latest scan - legal size, B&W, 300dpi, a survey so lines and text.
Views fine on monitor, prints out fuzzy, non legible.
Have tried printing on 2 different printers, same result.

Text and lines, look like they have grey/black shading behind them making them fuzzy and unreadable.

Looked at scanned documents from several months ago same problem.

So can this fuzzy print problem be fixed and how do I fix the older scanned documents?

Thank You!

Try to change the dpi to the maximum, maybe 600 dpi. This will make the picture more defined.

Can I scan legal size paper with the Canon MP 240


Hi

You can scan the largest size of paper that will fit on the glass area of the scanner (the platten).

If your legal paper fits in this area or, at least the text printed on it fits well within the borders of platten, then you can scan it.

Your scan will show you a preview of the image scanned so you can see if all the text has been scanned from the original document before you save the scanned image on the computer or copy print it.

Legal Paper Size is: 8.5" x 14" (216mm x 356mm)

A4 Paper Size is: 210mm x 297mm

Letter Paper Size is: (8.5" x 11") 216mm X 279mm

This printer's Scanning Width is: A4/Letter

This printer's Scanning Length is: A4/Letter

I hope this helps.

How do I re-size something to scan and print?


Normally, you do this in the software that you use to view the photo or document. Usually print options or preview - if a photo, and you use Windows Vista / office - MS office picture manager - you simply open it in this program, print, then select the media destination (letter, legal m,etc), then fit to page, half page, etc. Or you can physically change the file size using this same tool (many other views can do this too), tools, resize, and name your pixel size. The advantages to doing this at print time, is that you dont mess with the original, and you get to see the result.

Cannot scan legal size documents. The scan goes through but it will only scan the letter size portion of the document and drops the rest of the text.


You likely need to install the Brother Scanner Resolution Improvement Tool. The description of the download states:

"This tool will expand the maximum scanning resolution capability and allow you to scan legal size documents."


Here is a link for the Windows Vista download

Scanning a legal size document


Move the document feeder front guide towards the rear of input tray, line up with 8 1/2" marking. This should inform the machine to register for 8 1/2 x 11 or 8 1/2 x 14 originals>fed lengthwise.

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...


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.

Won't recognize legal size paper


I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.

I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:

*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.

It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.

**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)

I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.

Scanning Problems


I need some more information are the lines horizontal or vertical? Does it print fine from the computer? Does this problem only happen when you scan an item in and then print it or copying an item then print it? Also when you get this output do you have some of the text and lines or just lines?
