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?

Re: New Canon MP610 scanner makes loud noises
I own this model too. It is very quiet. Sounds like a problem inside unit. I had a different problem with mine so I emailed them. They were very helpful & are replacing my unit. You may want to email them. Here's the email address I used. Good luck.
If this was helpful plz take the time to rate this. Thank you kindly.

from the question I understand, the scanner move to right and during return it starts noise.
The problem with scanner assembly, It might be dust accumulated on gears, the scanner belt might have loose or the grips of the belt has worn out. Proper cleaning and lubricating the moving parts may overcome also if the belt worn out it has to be replaced.
In case of at home position it gives noise then the home position sensor may dirty/dusty, it has to be cleaned.
Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution
By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be. The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is. The resolution can be changed before scanning.
(Note) If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled. If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur. To change standard scan settings using MP Navigator, click here To change more advanced scan settings using the scanner driver, click here Using MP Navigator
Place the document face-down on the platen glass.
Launch MP Navigator.
On the Windows desktop, double-click the 'MP Navigator 2.0' icon.
in the Windows taskbar, click 'Start', click '(All) Programs', 'Canon
Utilities', 'MP Navigator 2.0' folder, then 'MP Navigator 2.0' icon.
Click 'Scan Photo/Document'.
Display varies according to the printer model.
When the Scan Photo/Document window is displayed, click 'Specify'.
Display varies according to the printer model.
When the Scan Settings window is displayed, select the resolution in Scanning Resolution drop-down.
Select from the following scanning resolutions: [Text(OCR)]: 300/400/600 Other: 75/100/150/200/300/400/600
If necessary, set other items as well.
In the Scan Photo/Document window, click 'Scan' to start scanning.
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.

I need more
information to offer a definitive solution, but I can give you some information
that might help diagnose the problem. Unless you
forgot and tried to use it locked…then unlocked it after, it seems unlikely
that changing the ink could directly affect anything related to the scanner. So
especially if it still scans and now just makes more noise then before, we can reasonably
say it isn’t a faulty locking mechanism and that the gears are probably not
stripped, which would either stop it or not. So you’re looking at either something
simple like the gear assembly being dry, shifted slightly, etc. or the safety by
the lock that makes noise to tell you the device is locked is stuck somehow.
The one can be tested by removing the little plastic safety that makes the
noise when the scanner is turned on and locked; the other you might be able to
test with some WD40 and see if it runs quieter.
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. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=ModelTechSpecsTabAct&fcategoryid=2610&modelid=15604
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.
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.
Seems like maybe the ccd unit which turns the light reflected off your image into the digital version which is then displayed on your screen or printed. Im purely having a guess, but i just cant think what else could be doing this. I feel as though you could possibly be buying yourself a new printer soon.. In that case the mp 520 a VERY good valued approach.
I just did it then! With help from solution posted Feb 08 leave the acual scanner alone can be done from the computer. Steps:
1. Go to - start - control panel - printers & hardware - scanners.
2. Once inside the scanners folder just click once on the scanner icon (mine is called WIA Canon) so it is highlighted.
3. Then click on the toolbar 'File' > 'scan', then select the correct program from the list (mine was MP Navigator 2).
4. Use the MP Navigator program to select "scan photo/document", follow the instructions. At the bottom if the window that is open you can change the document type to PHOTO or DOCUMENT!
This is where the problem lies it is scanning the document as a photo which is why it is coming out as multiple documents.
