Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I cannot get the scanner to scan the full page. It crops the page and I only get a partial picture of the page that I am scanning. I know it is me, but I can't find the user manual. Please help....thanks, Sharalyn
I just did it then! With help from solution posted Feb 08 leave the acual scanner alone can be done from the computer. Steps:
1. Go to - start - control panel - printers & hardware - scanners.
2. Once inside the scanners folder just click once on the scanner icon (mine is called WIA Canon) so it is highlighted.
3. Then click on the toolbar 'File' > 'scan', then select the correct program from the list (mine was MP Navigator 2).
4. Use the MP Navigator program to select "scan photo/document", follow the instructions. At the bottom if the window that is open you can change the document type to PHOTO or DOCUMENT!
This is where the problem lies it is scanning the document as a photo which is why it is coming out as multiple documents.

Are the bits actually being scanned about 4inches by 6inches. If so it sounds like your scanner might be set to 4x6 mode. If you look on your control panel of your printer there should be an option for the paper size and it is probably set to 4x6. If you change that back to A4 or normal then it will be fine.

I finally solved this problem! I found that in the Canon MP Navigator EX program Document Size was set to AutoDetect which caused the scanner to either crop the page or to treat blocks of text as separate pages.
To change the document size to a specific size (usually "Letter"), open the Canon MP Navigator EX program and click the button in the left sidebar labeled Jump to the Main Menu. Then click Custom, and change the Document Size to Letter. Now be sure to click Apply to save this setting before clicking the Scan button.

One solution for Canon PIXMA MP450 scan cropping is to "Specify" the document area to be scanned as "Platen" - in the MP 2 Navigator preferences - see included image. Caution: All images will now be identical in size and contain added white space due to scanning the MP450's entire scan "bed" on each scan pass. This approach works best for document scanning - see below image.

Hello I just had the same problem and could not have the machine to scan the whole document.
You must install the MP Navigator that is on the Setup CD and this program does the job perfectly.

This is an HP wide prolem -- exists in all scanning software whether for Officejet or Photosmart AIO. Technitians ARE aware of it. HP claims they're workng on it -- though no so as you'd notice. If you use ANY other software to scan (e.g., Adobe Acrobat Pro) the problem goes away.

Check your orientation settings within Page Setup. There are usually 3-4 options. Just have to make sure the arrow follows your doucument properly.
