If you are using a computer with a Windows Operating System (XP, Vista, etc., ) I can help. Just follow these directions: (From beginning to end)

1) Make sure that the power to your scanner is On but do not plug your scanner into your computer until instructed to do so by the software.

2) Place the CD that came with your scanner into the CD drive of your computer. Install the software for your scanner and plug your scanner into your computer.

3) Re-boot your computer.

4) After re-boot, place a document you want to scan under the lid of your scanner.

5) Go to:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint (and click on the Paint program.

6) When Paint opens, go to the upper toolbar in the program and click on, 'File' then scroll down and click on, 'From Scanner or Camera.'
(a window will open)

7) Click on the icon for your scanner and then click, 'OK".
(a window will open)

8) Choose the type of document you wish to scan and click, 'Scan".

9) Note: Some scanners take a moment to 'warm up' before scanning. If your scan doesn't begin immediately, just be patient.)

10) Your document will be scanned and automatically imported into the Paint program.

11) When you can see the scanned document in Paint, (again) go to the upper toolbar and select, 'File' > scroll down and select, 'Save As' > (your Pictures Folder will open) > type in a name for your document > and click, 'Save'.

12) You can now exit the Paint program and go to your Pictures folder. There, click on your scanned document to view it.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

I am so clueless, it has been so long since I've used it, I forgot how to savethe document after I scan it. Any help? Jeff


Yes, when your finished and you can view the document (usually in a PDF format) select save a copy and then select your selected folder/location for the document. My cannon has a setting to where I can choose a folder for all scanned documents to go to. I created a scanned documents folder and access them from there.

Scanning


As with most scanners, place the document in the scanner for scanning. Open the software that you wish to use. Select "File" from the menu and then "Import". Your scanner interface listing should appear. Click on the device to begin your import from your scanner. Your scanner should scan the document and it will appear in your application. Be advised, Scanners scan in a Graphic format. To edit in a wordprocessor you will need some kind of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Software to convert the graphics into a wordable form for editing.

Don't know how to set scanner for multiple page scan into single pdf file


The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!

Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab.
Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).

Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.

The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.

This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".

Choose the location for saving the file and click save.
Hallelujah! .......stupid software.

How do I scan and e-mail pdf documents from the MP730?


Scanners scan a document in picture format(JPEG) dot per dot. Their are complete programs out ther that will scan a document and turn it into a text fine. They are far more expensive that just copy a picture of some words on a page, Typical scanner function. I hope I have explained it well.

HOW DO I SCAN?


Hi, normally, if you have installed the complete driver set, the easiest way is to run a program with scanning capability i.e. photoshop, or word. the software normally given with a scanner is a 'twain' which becomes linked to the photoshop program. If you have MS word (I'll use this as an exAmple ), ensure the scanner software is installed, the brother switched on and connected to the computer correctly click Insert select picture then scanner - (or it may say twain). At this point the Brother mini program - the 'twain' should start and then follow the scanner instructions and a scan of whAtever you have selected should be inserted into the word document. Bit of trivia - TWAIN stands for Tool With An Interesting Name - yup it really is!.

Symbol Spark LS 1004 Problem


What barcode scanner do you have? USB, SERIAL or ps2.

by the way. the old computer is it like NCR, SIEMENS or IBM because then you need to re-program your scanner.

i found a manual where you can set your pc type with barcode scanner. be careful not to scan reset defaults. because you will loose your settings.

look at chapter 4-9 and 4-10

If you don't know ask me. we don't want to lose al the settings.

good luck

CD-4050 Scanner


First scan a single page and note the file size. Then scan two pages and check if the file size is changed. If the file size is changed, then you have problem with your viewing software. If the file size is same, then check your setting in the scaniing software.
