Re: Enlarging andf reducing on photocopiers

HI on the machine there should be a auto reduction enlarge all you need to do is press this place the original on the doc feeder and select the paper cassette in which the paper size you want the copy to be on. Once you have selected press the start button and then the reduction or enlargement is calculated for you.

Hope this helps and answers your question.

Thanks J

How to copy legal to letter on copystar CS 4005i

Make sure your default settings are for AUTO paper selection and 100% magnification to start. That is the most common default settings. Then, under "Zoom" change to AUTO magnification and under PAPER SELECTION specify Letter (either landscape or portrait). Now when you copy a legal original (8.5" x 14") it will be reduced at 78% to fit it on an 11" sheet. An alternative is to use "X-Y" zoom. Now you can stipulate 78% for the "X" dimension and leave the "Y" dimension at 100%. You will want letter size paper to be feeding lengthwise (portrait). Now you can copy legals and the image is reduced top-to-bottom only, leaving it much more readable.

My MFC-3240c won't copy. Has been fine up to now

Hello may I suggest doing a simple reset of your machine. If you have not tried this please do so.

Simply unplug your printer power wire from the printer and wait about a minute. Now plug it back in and your problem may be resolved.

Next, if this does not make sure you do not have any print jobs backed up in your computers printer cue.

This can be done by looking in the bottom right corner of your computer monitor. look for a printer icon. If there is on there click on it and cancel all print jobs.

Also, check for paper jam, make sure paper is not causing problem.
finally, here are the steps to enlarge and reduce. just in case there is a step you are missing.

Press options: UP or Down arrow.

How do you fax a document that is 11 by 14 inches?

Most fax machines and printers will scan and fax an 11x14 document. Just check your owners manual to see if any settings need to be changed AND contact the person you are faxing to let them know to put 11x14 paper in their machine, or some of the print may be lost if the fax will be printed on two 8x11 sheets.

If you don't have your owners manual, post a question and include the manufacturer and model number of your fax machine or printer and one of us will look it up for you.

I don't work on that particluar product line so I can only comment on what zoom feature can do to copies in general

It could be that the zoom is too high to fit on 8/12 x 11 paper you may have to reduce it to get it to fit.

Otherwise you might want to check with a Kyocera tech.

Reducing/enlarging on Canon MP 160

The only option I see that comes close to this is the "fit to page" option described on page 35 in the manual. Apparently, it detects the size of the original and enlarges it to fit on the paper size selected. Otherwise, I see no options for enlarging or reducing while copying.

Printing photos

That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.
