Hi there. It sounds like you are not correctly setting up your page for scanning. Are you just putting the page in and hitting scan or are you going through the scan "wizard?" You need to let the scanner know what you are printing (color pic, black and white pic, text doc, etc.) and how big it is. Let me know what happens.

How do i scan multiple pages in pdf


You can only do that if your printer has a feeder. If it only has a cover and a gloss top where you place 1 sheet at a time, you can only do one at a time.

When doing a scan ,how do I group 2 or 3 scans together to create a 2 or 3 page file ?


Mark:

You'll need adobe acrobat (the full program) to open your first page, then open the second page and copy the second page to the bottom of the first page, then copy the third page to the bottom of the second page. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat, have your scanner save the file in another format (such as WinWord), then convert to a PDF file if you need to.

My scanner just started smearing the first page of a duplex to pdf but when I scan just front of document it doesn't smear it


Hi

Your question is not clear.

Sometimes using technical jargon makes it harder for people to understand each other (this applies to both askers and answerers).

I always advise askers to use normal language as much as possible and answerers to do the same and where jargon is unavoidable, to explain as they go along.

Please post again to clarify what you mean by "..a duplex to pdf..", in normal language not in technical jargon.

A PDF is not a real, physical document. It is a digital document on a computer or a webpage created in PDF format.

A Duplex document is a real document, printed on both sides of each sheet of paper.

If you are trying to scan a multiple page Duplex Document using the Sheet Feeder of your scanner, the ink on the reverse side may be getting caught up in, affecting and/or staining one of the rollers in the Sheet Feeder.

The bottom roller in most non-industrial Scanner Sheet Feeders expects to touch only the plain reverse side of a sheet of paper as it is passed through and turned over to rest on the Platten (scanning surface) of the scanner ready to be scanned.

Multifunction printers with built in scanners and sheet feeders and duplex printing capability are designed in a way that makes them more forgiving of dealing with duplex printed paper.

Duplex printing printed in a laser printer is less likely to cause a problem as long as it is allowed to dry thoroughly. Inkjet printing that is allowed to drry thoroughly should also be okay.

If the scanning is being attempted very soon after printing, then the wetness of the printing may be the problem.

Sheet Feeders that handle duplex printed sheets invariably become stained and need periodic cleaning.

If the document is not too long, you may have to scan it manually, page-by-page.

If the document exists as a PDF somewhere on your computer or on the internet, then it is unclear why you would need to scan it. This is why your question is puzzling.

Post a further comment, if this answer does not help you solve the problem.

I hope this helps.

How do i scan more than one sheet into a pdf document?


In Adobe Acrobat, go to -File-/-Create PDF-/-From Scanner-/-Scan-. Scan your first sheet and after it is completed, in the Acrobat Scan Dialogue box, click on -Next-, and scan the next sheet. Continue until you have finished your document and then click on -Done-. You can make your scanned document searchable by doing an OCR procedure on it by going to -Document-, -Recognise document by using OCR-/-Start-.

Bothers MCF-490CW 4 in 1 || scanner - when scanning multiple pages, what must I do so when I send as an attachment the attachment is one group instead of each individual sheet?


Create a WORD document then paste each images on a page, save the Word document and then send this Word document as an attachment in your e-mail.
If you do net want to send the Word document then you can create a PDF of the Word document and send the PDF file as an attachment.

I want to scan an multiple images and save it to a PFD format.


You , nor anyone else,cannot scan and save as an ADOBY PDF file. To creat a PDF file requires either the ADOBY writting software of another software that saves  in the PDF file format.    Scanners take a picture of what ever is layed on them and copies then by breaking them into  millions of dots and then saving as a picture in a format such as JPEG.   Sorry

The toner colors fade out on the top 1/3 of page, black is better


Maybe you have some dried ink on the cartridge. You see the silver-ish strip on it? try whipping it down with a rag because I dont think you want that ink on your shirt. Try that and if not let me know.
