Canon MP610 Scans blurry images and photos

I upgraded from Canon MP500 to MP610, the printing quality is better, however the scanner in the MP610 doesn't seem to be able to scan images sharp, they all come out blurry no matter what different setting I choose.

    I have the same problem. Scanning photos is awful! They are blurry and completely unusable, though like you said, the print quality is very nice. I've also tried to scan documents using every possible combination of settings and those are completely unusable as well.

I had the same problem with one of these units. I had another one that worked great so I knew it should work. I called Canon and after some questions about the problem they sent me a replacement unit which works fine.

Canon MF3110 - Copy problems When we try to copy a document it comes our blurry, yet if we send a document from computer software it comes out fine.


Try reinstalling the driver first. If that does not work, the issue is with the scanning hardware, which will have to be calibrated. Try doing a calibration of your scanner from the tool box first. If that doesnt work either, then it is definitely scanner hardware defect.

If your all in one is under warranty, I'd recommend you contact the point of sale of the manufacturer. Unfortunately, if your warranty has run out, you will either have to get it serviced or buy a new machine (whichever works out cheaper)

Hope that helps!

I don't know how to fax


The control panel LCD also provides menus to operate the copy and fax modes independently of a PC. One nice touch: the LCD displays small and large type on the same screen, allowing more information about a print job to show at one time. b.gif 21262659-2-200-dt2.gif
The flash card reader under the control panel means you don't need a PC to print photos.

The MP730, while easy to operate, lacks some of the advanced features you might find on separate printers or faxes. For example, the MP730 can't collate copy jobs. To make more than one collated copy of a multipage document, you have to place the document in the ADF several times. Nor can the MP730 sync fax numbers entered by hand or accessed from within the Windows Address Book (Canon doesn't provide its own fax/address-book software), so you may end up duplicating efforts. Nor does Canon's software create group dials from your address book on your PC or provide a cover sheet. Finally, the MP730 can't forward faxes to another number or hold a fax to send when nighttime low rates kick in, which other multifunctions do.

Still, the MP730 provides plenty of features we do like. Using the menus with the Photo Print mode, you can print a photo contact sheet, pick individual images to print, and set up the printer to copy or print onto high-quality glossy paper. In the Copy mode, menus let you print two reduced originals side by side or print the same image on the same page several times (useful for business cards, name tags, and so on). The fax engine distinguishes voice from fax, sending voice calls to your phone or an answering machine and sending fax calls to the printer or to buffer memory so that you don't have to get a second phone line installed for your fax.

Installing the MP730 software is slow but idiot-proof: You just pop in the CD and follow instructions, which require restarting your PC several times. Canon bundles the MP730 with ScanSoft's OmniPage SE, a lite version of the best optical-character recognition software on the market, and NewSoft's Presto PageManager 6.0, one of the best document-management databases available.
The MultiPass MP730 won't replace top-of-the-line printers and scanners, but its print and scan speeds keep up with other multifunctions' as well as that of most as midrange ink-jet printers and scanners on the market today. In our tests, it printed ordinary text at 6.4 pages per minute and printed CNET's high-resolution test photo in 3.7 minutes. For comparison, the Lexmark X5150 (only $149 but without fax capability or automatic document feeder) prints text at a more common 5.2 pages per minute, and printed our test photo in about 2 minutes. Canon's MP730 scans a page of black in 9.4 seconds and a page of color in 20 seconds; that's seconds faster than the HP PSC 1210. And the Canon makes copies in 18.7 seconds; that's almost twice as fast the HP PSC 1210.

Unfortunately, the MP730 delivers a mixed bag on image quality. When printing, better paper has a big effect. When we printed text on ordinary paper, for instance, it looked grayish instead of black, and a gray shadow haunted the edges of letterforms, while on coated (not glossy) inkjet paper, text popped out in a solid black and looked much cleaner. Our color photo on ordinary paper looked very dotty, had rough transitions between shades, made a blob of detailed areas, printed lines with jagged edges, and mixed inappropriate colors; coated inkjet paper improved detail and let colors appear in the right hues, though much too saturated. And on top-quality glossy paper, textures, shading, and transitions suddenly looked right, and we saw sharp, clear detail.

Grayscale scans on the MP730 when compared with other scans seemed overexposed, losing paler shades of gray along with some detail, while color scans showed accurate colors and fairly good detail despite somewhat grainy textures.

Photo quality


With nearly ALL Canon printers, you must use Canon paper for photos. The MP500 isn't really a photo printer like the 600, so that is also a problem. Try using the Canon photo paper. It's a bit pricey, but might be worth it in the long run.
Hope this helps.

Canon mp500 onlt scans part of the page


I was very frustrated by this problem too, but just found a fix at last!!

Instead of focussing on the settings on the scanner itself. Use the MP navigator software to change scan settings and get around this problem. there you can set document size, colour or black and white and even DPI (quality) .

COPY PROBLEM


You have a scanner problem.  You might try and make sure you're using the right plug for it.  If you can figure out how to take the glass off, you should try cleaning all the glass and mirrors.  You should also clean the area just above where the scanner rests when it's not being used (you'll see a white strip there).  If none of this works, you'll probably need a new scanner.  Junk the thing.
