Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

New Canon MP610 scanner makes loud noises

New MP610 scans documents and images very good but makes noise when scanning that varies in pitch and loudness regardless of dpi setting or type of document. Varies between a loud whining to tonal annoying sound that hurts your ears.

Is this normal? I've never owned a scanner before but it doesn't seem like it should be so loud without something being wrong? Is there anyone else that owns one that is relatively quite?

Good Evening, I have a i420 Kodak Scanner when scanning in images it makes this high pitch screaming noise.


I highly doubt the main board is going bad. There is a huge difference between an electronic high pitched noise vs a scanner noise. Does the noise only occur while scanning or when parts are moving? If yes, then a scanner noise. If the noise is on all the time even when idle, then you have an electronic noise like an open or leaking capacitor.
On this particular model the seperation idle roller builds up with paper dust and will cause a high pitched noise. Like nails on a chalk board. Very simple fix. Open cover. Grab seperation assembly and pull toward the tray at the front of the scanner, it will pop loose then lift up. Make sure to pop it back into place good. Be forcefull. With the assembly in hand, clean, and lube idle roll. It is the first metal/plastic roll the paper touches at the tray entrance. Also clean the shafts and bushings for the rubber rolls. Reassemble and you are all set. Happens on EVERY I420 scanner I have seen.

I think this is because you have a lot of white space and canon scanners try to grab only what they think is the image you are trying to scan (rather than the whole plate). When you scan I think you can select the area you want to scan rather than just let it do it for you. It's a while since I did this so cannot be more specific.

Can I save a scanned image using MP610?


Yes. PIXMA MP610 is a multifunction printer that has printer/copier/scanner capabilities.
Just install the software and drivers supplied with your printer (or download them from CANON ) and connect the printer do the computer.
The printer sofware will guide you through the operation of scanning an image and saving it to a a file in the computer.
Below is a link to CANON product support pages, from where you can dowload the software and drivers for the printer and also guides and manuals.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.

How to get rid of a black strip (1") on the leading edge of scanned documents?


You must be using Auto contrast/brightness. Change to manual, try one or two scans changing the brightness tab moving left or right and choose desire output quality. Remember the settings for that set of documents. The brightness will vary depending upon data (foreground) and noise (background). For a different set of docs you may need to adjust the settings slightly.
