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.
Yes you do this from the application that yu are using to do the scan. Chooese the setup or preferences tab for the scanner in the app and you should get a list of available optical resolutions from 75dpi, 100 dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 600dpi, 1200dpi upwards.
The optical resolution is 1200 x 2400dpi max and interpolated (from software) is 19200 x 19200 dpi.
You have to scan the pictures with a higher resolution to be able to print them in a larger format with acceptable quality.
If your default scanning setting is, say, 150dpi resolution, and you want the picture to be enlarged twofold, then you have to increase the resolution to 300dpi. If you have 300dpi now, increase it to 600dpi. Some scanner utilities do a fully automatic scan - then you have to find the automatic scan settings and change the default resolution. Or better yet, find an option for a non-automatic scan, where you are presented with various options after the preview scan has been done. There you can usually set the desired size, resolution, improve contrast, sharpness etc.
Generally, the higher the scanning resolution, the more detail you have on the picture, and the higher magnification you can obtain when printing without quality loss.
But there's a catch - a picture in higher resolution produces a bigger file on disk - the file size grows faster then the resolution - a two times bigger picture will be four times bigger on disk. So you have to make sensible choice.
You need to go to the printers webpage from your Web Browser http://192.168.1.100 or something like that. Then, go into Properties tab, and then the Services Dropdown. Under that, go into Email Settings and then Email Setup. Change your DPI to as high as 600dpi, then scroll to the bottom and hit save. You'll be prompted for a password which is either Admin / 1111 or 11111 / x-admin
Hi tammy, you can either use the Windows printer driver which will allow you to set scanning resolution up to 1200 dpi which you can access through a program like Photoshop (File--Import) or the Brother Scanner Utility to go up to 19200 dpi resolution. If for some reason you don't have the scanner utility on your computer, you may have to install it from the disc that came with MFC-240. If you need further help let me know.

To resolve the problem, try the steps below. After each step, try to send a fax again.
1. As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution: * Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution. 2. Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document. Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue. 3. Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel: 1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX mode. 2. Press Select. 3. Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display. 4. Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button. 5. Press Select. Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known. 4. Lower the fax transmission speed 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so: 1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX. 2. Press Select. 3. Press Options untill u see until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display. 4. Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button. 5. Press Select. 5. Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel: 1. Press the Fax button, then press untill u see to get to ADVANCED FAX. 2. Press Select. 3. Press untill u see ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display. 4. Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button. 5. Press Select.
