I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying

My scanned pages are too light.


Try to use the Lexmark All-In-One Center Application on your computer to adjust the darkness of your prints. On your computer, click on Start > Prorgrams > Lexmark 2600 Series folder > select All-In-One Center. From the Copy tab, select "darken" copies.
For printing, Normal or Best mode in the Print Setup properties before sending the print job to the printer for printing.

All of my copies and scans have a yellow background. This does not happen when I print a document directly.


You might be scanning and copying in full color even for regular documents. When you do this, it treats the document as a photograph or color document and therefore, the background, even if white, is scanned in as a bit yellow

Exposure problem


If internally generated prints are good, but copied documents are bad then your scanner needs cleaning. This can be found in the document feeder section where the light scans across the paper. If both copied and internally generated prints are bad, then chance are, your toner/drum catridge has run out.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

I want to copy a document


How often do you need to "copy" documents. Do you have a document scanner?  Your Epson is a printer.  You'll need a scanner to scan a document into your PC then you can print it out on your Epson.  If you only need a copy once in a blue moon, and you don't have a scanner, save yourself a few bucks and just go to Kinko's or maybe even your local grocery store or library and run your copies there.  They probably cost about 25 cents a page.  A new scanner will run you about $100 bucks.  If you decide that you need a scanner, you might even want to consider investing in a multi function printer which will scan-print-copy-fax.  Hope this helps.  If so, please remember to rate my solution.  Thanks.
