Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

All scanned documents have blue background.

When I scan a document or a photo the preview has a blue overall background. If I print the scanned document it comes out with rthe blue tinge all over. However, if I print directly from word or print a photo received by email all the colors are OK and there is no blue tinge. I get the same blue tinge if I insert a photo into word. How do I get rid of this blue tinge?

The scanner needs calibration which can only be done by service personel.

    • ADF : Place the item into the document feeder tray. The printed side faces up and the top edge goes into the tray first. Adjust the width guides to fit the item. CAUTION: Do not load photos in the ADF. Use the scanner glass instead to prevent damage to photos.

    1. Cancel the scan, return to the home screen of HP Solution Center, and then click the Settings option.

To get started, click Settings , click Scan Settings , click Button Settings , and then click the tab for Front Panel Scan Buttons . Read through the options, and then create the settings that you want.

A scan of the original appears in the HP Preview window.
3 In the HP Preview, you can edit the scanned image. When you have
finished, click Accept.

For more information about making changes to an image during the
preview, see adjust an image during the preview in scan pictures and

Scanner not scanning right. scans in sections. i need to scan a standard size sheet of paper and it scans it in peices. how do i get it to scan this document correctly

You need to set the scanner to scan a standard size paper (letter or A4) in the Scan Settings dialog. To get there, from the MP Navigator select "Scan Photo/Document", then on the lower left side of the preview area click on the "Specify. ." button. Your Document Size is probably set at "Auto Detect (Multiple Documents)". Change this to the size document you are scanning and click "OK". Now you can preview and scan and not have segmented images.

Scaned documents have many black areas even in the preview mode.

Open up the document feeder and look for dirt on the scanner glass.
