Scanning Different Sized Sheets

I am trying to scan various sized sheets of paper and it is taking way to long since it scans the entire page. Is there a setting that the scanner can detect and scan only the paper size that is on the flat bed?

    Thanks gaya, but I don't have a preview screen, I am new at this company and the way they have it set up is through canon art-copy scripting. Unfortunately, this won't work here. I am scanning these items as PDF.

There should be a preview option that scans more quickly than actually scanning the page. Then after the preview shows, you can select the area that you want to actually scan and then you hit the Scan button. If you are using the Canon software, this should work for ya.

There are two (2) things that I want you to try.

First, run the HP Scan Diagnostic Utility: CLICK HERE

Second, run the Microsoft diagnostic scanner. CLICK HERE

Hopefully, if you have a firmware or software problem, these two self-explanatory apps will solve your problem(s).

All the best,

Canon DR-5010C when settings are changed to Auto Detection for page size gets an error message stating that "Scanning parameters are incorrect." I want to be able to scan stacks of paper of various sizes....

If you are using CapturePerfect 3, select page size as Auto-detection, detect size by Image width, Deskew by roller & Image, then you will get images exactly as that of the scanned image.
If you ae using CP2, then you can select Auto-detection AND page detection. The problem with CP2 is if the image is less than that of the guide-plate, you will get black background. You can clean this through software.
If you had select B&W scanning and chosen to save file in JPG format, the scanner will report error. JPG is only for Color/ Grey scale.
With CP2, I have observed that sometimes, the changes are not retained, unless you select 'default' first and alter the parameters. This is not found in CP3.

Parts of page being scanned are cut off

Whcih version of CapturePerfect you are using?
I use ver 2.0. In the settings page select scanners maximum. In the 'advanced' select auto detection. Then whatever size of the paper guides you choose, that will will be the width and ofcourse the length is automatic. There is a sensor under the paper guide, and it detects the paper width. Any rotation chosen will be after scanning the required size.

Dr 5010c feeds one to five sheets, then stops

Clean the rubber rollers (pickup and ******) with a damp cloth, loosen the papers to be scanned. Clean all the rollers in the scanning path. What is the eror that is displayed? Download the user manual from this site (5010um.pdf). Change the rollers if they are old.

Not scanning full page

You omitted some details which might help diagnose the problem. For example, are you using the document feeder or the flatbed? Anyway, I'll take a guess here.

Check your paper size setting and make sure it matches the sheet you are scanning. (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.)

If this is not it, then try scanning from both flatbed and feeder and see if results vary. Note that when you use the feeder, scanning is done in a smaller window to the left of the flatbed, so make sure that is clean.

Won't recognize legal size paper

I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.

I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:

*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.

It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.

**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)

I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.

plz help me to understand: waisting paper by scanning?????
There is no paper to waist!

The machine scans the whole glass! The settings for scanning can be set by the scan software. Do have a look there. It might be that the settings auto crop the size.
In case you run copy do change the paper size.
