Copier quality


Most fax machines would have a resolution selector to vary clarity of transmitted documents. The same would also hold true for scanning jobs. I would discount the possibility of the power supply since everything works except for the quality of the copy/fax. If the printer still works OK (quality of print out) then it is the scanner's availability to copy that is the issue. With current prices of all in one printers (fax/scanner), purchase of a new unit might be more practical not only in terms of cost but in downtime.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have recently purchased HP SCANJET G4050 , before the purchasing of device HP executives said that it has 3-D effect and it takes same time to scan for any resolution means higher resolution also but now...

when you scan at 1200 dpi its usually over 100 mb which is a waste of time but it is great to use when you want something to be outstanding but the best resolution is at 600 dpi which is what my scanner is set to its good resolution but requires alot less data around 4-5 mb so it save time but its good to have the 1200 dpi for project that you want to impress or scan pictures but you dont have to use 1200 everytime hope my opinion was helpful:)

I want to increase the size of the small drawings i do from my epson 1250 scanner to my canon 1800ip to a4 printout size is this possible.

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.

Difference between ''Auot Color'' and ''Full Color Mode

Most Colour machines have three settings.

Auto Colour, Machine will determine if the original is Colour or Black and White from its scan. Then print in the format that best suits the original.

Full Colour, Machine will copy in full Colour regardless of Original type.

Black and White, Machine will copy or scan in B & W regardless of original type.

Hope this is of some help.

Scanner Problem

In the menu(on the printer), there is a option where in you can specify if you want the scanner to scan in mono or colour it is set to mono that is why you are not getting any colour scans.
