Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanned photos from my MP240 printer go to my computer but are too small even though I press 'fit to page'. They are saved as .bmp. Would saving as .jpg make them bigger so that I can send for printing? I have read and reread the instructions for scanning from the manual but I'm still not sure I'm doing it correctly.

I suspect you are choosing too small of a resolution in the scanning software. The specs from Canon say it will outout a maximum of 1200x2400 which should give you a much bigger image. Look through the manual again specifically looking for how to change the scan resolutions.

Can I scan legal size paper with the Canon MP 240


Hi

You can scan the largest size of paper that will fit on the glass area of the scanner (the platten).

If your legal paper fits in this area or, at least the text printed on it fits well within the borders of platten, then you can scan it.

Your scan will show you a preview of the image scanned so you can see if all the text has been scanned from the original document before you save the scanned image on the computer or copy print it.

Legal Paper Size is: 8.5" x 14" (216mm x 356mm)

A4 Paper Size is: 210mm x 297mm

Letter Paper Size is: (8.5" x 11") 216mm X 279mm

This printer's Scanning Width is: A4/Letter

This printer's Scanning Length is: A4/Letter

I hope this helps.

I want to be able to scan photos on to facebook but dont know how


The Lexmark X2670 printer does not have the capability of scanning photos directly to Facebook. However, you can scan your photos to your computer and save the scanned file. Then post the saved file to your Facebook account.
  1. Open the top cover, and then load an original document facedown on the scanner glass.
  2. Close the top cover to avoid dark edges on the scanned image.
  3. Make sure that the printer is connected to a computer, and that both the printer and the computer are on.
  4. From the printer control panel, press the Scan button.
  5. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
After saving the file, open your Facebook account and post your saved photos.

How do I dlete scanned items


The scanned items should be stored somewhere on your computer as an image file(JPG, TIF, BMP, or PDF). Typically, when you scan a document you decide where to save the document. Simply browse to where the scanned documents are, right-click on one of the files then click Delete. This should delete the scanned document.

HP 5610 scanner won't save image


I just need to understand the exact issue. It sounds like you are able to successfully scan, see the preview of the scanned image, and you initially save it. Then, when you go to open the saved image, you don't see the image you scanned but rather a "line". You've saved the image in a number of different image formats, but there's no difference in the result. It saves the scanned image to the location you want to save it on your computer's hard drive (probably My Pictures if you're using a Windows operating system).

Not sure what you mean by a "line". Do you mean a vertical line, a horizontal line, a diagonal line or what? Also, is it just a solid black line on a white background? Is it the image you scanned compressed into a smaller vertical or horizontal space?

Have to tried scanning both text pages and graphic pages? There have been issues where a document with both text and pictures has been scanned but when the scanned image is viewed, only the text appears. The pictures don't make it. The description of this specific problem is at HP.com.

I take it you don't get any sort of error message associated with this problem. Unfortunately, I can't find your specific problem at HP.com beyond the link I posted in the above paragraph. If you can answer some of the questions I asked, it might help me provide a better solution.

Thanks.

Scan images file size seems very large


That entirely depends on your scan settings. The resolution has a huge impact on file size - doubling the resolution from, say. 150dpi to 300dpi actually quadruples your file size. That being said, your scans are probably saved as BMPs. If you scan to Paint or a proprietary image editor (like Photoshop), then you can save in a compressed format like JPG or PNG and reduce the file size some more.

Bottom line - if you're scanning a full size (8.5x11) page, then less than 2MB per page is pretty decent, especially if the file is a BMP. If these are 4x6 photos, then it's still not bad if you're using a resolution like 300dpi. My digital camera takes photos at 5megapixels and the files are often 1-2MB each, and those are just photos.
