I could not connect the printer but I have the CD driver. There is a problem when i try to install the dhe driver. The scanner is Ok without any problem.

A damaged CD, check for scratches or dirty stains, to be wiped clean before reinstallation. Check the Disk driver for malfunction by trying another functioning CD in driver. The printer would hardly function the installation CD installed. meanwhile check on the acquiring software drivers on the website of the printer manufacturer. examples, should provide compartible codes to priter repairs.

Simple way to Get Better Quality Scans

This tip describes and explains a common standard technique to correct and improve the contrast of the image, which enhances colors too. It is applicable to scanning both prints and film, and to editing later too. It uses the histogram tool in your scanner's driver or photo editor program, and is called Setting the Black and White Points. This discussion may appear to be about scanning, but this same technique works for scanner images, digital camera images, any image at all. The LCD display on better digital cameras shows this same histogram to allow judging the correct camera exposure at time of shooting, so now is time to learn this technique.

This is easy to do and learn, and it can make a huge difference to your images. It is an essential technique for Color or Grayscale photo images, a real fundamental. It is simply the way images are adjusted. It is quick to do, and it should become your automatic procedure.

You can do this during the scan, or after the scan in the photo editor. The scanner software is very important to our results, it is the tool we have to work with. You really don't need much skill to operate a printer or a monitor, but scanners do require extra effort. The technique described here used with good scanning software will raise your scanning skill level very considerably.

This article is illustrated using images of the histogram tool from Microtek ScanWizard, but if your scanner allows control of the tones during the scan, and many scanners do, then it has similar tools, and they will all work the same way.

Most popular photo editor programs today have similar histogram tools, for example Adobe Photoshop or Elements (shown below - at the Levels menu or just type Control L), and Corel Photo-Paint, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Corel Paint Shop Pro. These all work the same as described here. This tool is often named "Levels", referring to adjusting the black and white end point levels. The adjustment below lowered the midpoint, to brighten the image.

The first step is to start with a pretty good photograph, reasonably focused and exposed. Then the rest is easy. You can even make poor photos better, sometimes a lot better.

The image below is our final version. It's only a 256 color GIF file now, okay? GIF is not best for photos, but the transparent background requires it. And I like it, and it's a good example for the technique. There are a few steps involved in this Simple Way, and it's much harder to describe than to do, but I'll try to cover it all. This method works great for Color or Gray scanning modes, and if you edit images, I can't imagine you not finding it extremely useful too. This tool is fundamentally important to all imaging.


Below is the initial scan, with less contrast.


Photos do vary, one from another, and often do have different scanning requirements. Here is an easy nearly semi-automated technique that helps quite a lot (honest). And for the unusual photo, too dark, too light, etc, variations of this same method will work wonders. There are many opinions how to best do this, but this one works.

This article is illustrated using screen images from Microtek's ScanWizard, but if your scanner allows control of the tones during the scan, and it probably does, then it surely has very similar tools that work the same way. And good photo editors also have the same tool.
Thanks! =)

My scanner is not working, new printer only 3 mos old

you mentioned the scanner isn't working and the printer is only 3 months old. i'm guessing it's a combo scanner/printer. go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for your scanner then install them.

Casio TE2200 with Cipher 1000 Barcode scanner still not working

I have set up the casio 7000 to use a metrologic orbit scanner. The scanner program is most important. I don't know what Cipher uses, but I think that is where your problem is. I will do some more research and get back to you.
The 9789745002500 is correct you will use a 13 digit number

Casio TE-2200 Scanner does not work

Hi Jeff,
1. To know whether scanner is doing ok with TE2200: After u do the flag clear the R/J printer will print a piece of paper , if u didn't see "02-98 5803" at the bottom of the receipt, that means TE2200 can detect the scanner correctly

2. For the Graphic Logo :
2.1 make sure u have ur picture in the size of = 384x168 pixel, and it have to be in "bmp" format.
2.2 Key turn to PGM
2.3 press 5 sub
2.4 Press [4] [7] Sub
2.5 press [1] [6] [8] CA Sub
2.6 Use Casio CV-10 software to send the logo to TE-2200

Can not connect to wifi due to wireless switch

I assume you have a laptop or notebook. If you look closely at your keyboard, you'll notice a couple of keys next to the spacebar, usually on both sides, that have something like "Func" printed in blue or another color.
Now, if you look at the rest of the keys on your notebook, you will see that some have two
functions: the desired character key, and another, in the same color as that special
function key.
If you now look at the topmost row of keys, or the 'function" PF keys, it's likely that
they too have a second function, depicted by a small icon in the same color. The icon
you're looking for should look like a radiating antenna, and it may have on it (or elsewhere in the notebook) a small (usually blue) LED that comes on that comes on when WiFi is turned on.
The combo key action you refer to means that you should press the special function key next
to the spacebar first, and then the key that has the icon, to toggle WiFi on or off.
In other cases, there's a recessed button along the edge, either on a corner, or on the sides of the notebook, with a similar icon depicting an antenna of some sort, and it usually has an LED that comes on to indicate WiFi is active.
If all fails, your user's manual is the best source of information to find the key/key combination you need, since not all notebooks/laptops have these keys/buttons in the same place.
Good luck!

I bought a computer with vista and now I can't hook up my cannon printer or scanner.

The bad news first... Vista hates and will not drive cannon products.
The other bad news... Cannon went out of the printer business and never wrote a vista driver.
Now some more bad news... vista is not really as fully developed as the XP os and don't really know if it will ever be, it's pretty, but it's one problem after another.
The solution is either buy new printer/scanner or revert Ur system to an XP os. This is the sort if issue that windows went back to selling and supporting XP.
This is a very traveled road!
