On my 901, I can reduce the size of the PDF file by changing the "quality" setting in the scan mode. More specifically, reducing the DPI that it scans at. I also noticed that scanning a document to a wireless network computer, and then scanning the same thing again directly to a flash drive plugged into the printer, results in significant variations of the file size. Perhaps trying different combinations of these things will help you with your problem. Good Luck.
This printer can only scan to JPG format and that format only supports one page at a time. The only multipage file format is PDF which this printer does not support. To get everything into one file you would have to scan the pages to individual files and then use Winzip to combine then into one zip file that you can send to someone. Be careful the files will get very big very fast and some email providers will not accept files that size.
Hi, you can reduce the file size by decreasing the DPI (dots per inch) or resolution of the scanned image. This can typically either be done from the scanner's control panel or from the software installed on your computer. The less DPI you set it for, the smaller your file will be.
Some scanners will also allow you to compress files. If the MFC-7840W will let you, the option would be in the software program, and it should say "enable file compression" or "enable image compression" or something similar.
The file size is dependant on several things, such as, the amount of information on each page, the type of document (all text, image or combination and colors). Try to scan to OCR and then save as PDF.
If you have the full version of Acrobat, not just the reader, try scanning to a word file or RTF then convert to PDF.
the file type is set to single page
1.press the scan button on the control panel
2.select scan setting.
3.select file type.
4.select multi page to have the entire scan to be sent as a single file.
if you are sending jpegs they can only be sent as single page files on this machine. only pdf's and tiffs can be sent as multi page files
Resolution you scanned it at as well as scanning in color versus black and white. Also, that 47 page document might be vector graphics and text rather than bitmap information.
Scan in 200dpi black and white to get a usable (readable) and small file. Should be about 100-200kbytes per page.

If the documents you are scanning are black and white, make sure you are selecting that in the scanner dialogue box. If you need to keep gradiants, but don't need color, try selecting grayscale. If you are adjusting your DPI (dots per inch) to the maximum (300), try using something lower (recommend 150). Lastly, check the settings in the software you use to create PDFs to ensure they are the same as what you use at the office.
