Hi

This sounds fairly typical of dust, grit or gunk on the scanner "lenz". Could also be that some of the components of the "lenz" have failed or been scratched.

If the unit is still under warranty return to the place of purchase for a replacement. If not and you are totaly bored you could disasemble and give the "lenz"strip (thing wich provides the bright light a bit of a clean with metholated spirits and a lint free cloth/tissue paper. However concidering how inexpensive scaners and multipas's are these days you may be well served just to replace the unit, I know for people from my generation this sort of sticks in our throats because we remember when cheep in the computer industry was measured in thousands of dollars, now it's not just plug and play but fail and throw.

Hmm spend a couple of frustrating hours on a dubious repair or spend one or two hours overtime enjoying myself and get a brand new beastie.

Kind Regards.

My computer crashed and so I bought new one. Have downloaded Samsung SF-555SP program and now it prints but I can't find any icons to make it scan. Thanks; Marvin ...


Scanning will work as separate plug in, when you request to acquire image from scanner from a standard image editor it will bring the task. Would you mind to provide your operating system and the programs that you are using for image editing so I can provide steps to scan.

How do I scan a document to my computer with the Canon Pixma MP470 printer/scanner? I tried to press scan, but the document never shows up on my computer


Hello!

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Scanners and Cameras
then double click your scanner and follow the wizard

If your scanner does not shou up in the Scanners and Cameras folder,  then you need to install scanner driver located on the CD the Printer/scanner came with

Hope this helps!

When I scan a page and email it to someone,including myself, the image enlarges 12 times larger. How do I change the print size?


Check the resolution of your scanned pictures. I don't know what program you use to view your scanned images, but although you see what looks like the proper image size to you may actually be a reduced size so that it fits on the screen. Check the percentage of view that should be indicated on your screen somewhere, It may say something like 10%.
Since I don't know what software you are using to scan with, look in its help directory for instructions on how to adjust or reduce the resolution when you scan you images. Either that or once scanned open up your images with a image editing application and adjust the resolution there.

Once I scan my document and send it to another file the document is bigger then the page


check your scanner settings; your DPI setting is probably too high. decrease it to one of your presets, like copy, black and white scan, or even fax, at about 100 - 200 dpi, and you should be fine.
