Basic steps:

1. Check all connections to make sure they are all seated properly.

2. Uninstall and reinstall the software.

3. Uninstall and reinstall scanner drivers.

4. Check manufacturer's website for updated drivers

From your description I would say try steps all the following steps in order, but it sounds like the device drivers might be the problem (but always try the simple stuff first.

Hello, I am having a problem with a newly bought HP deskjet 2050 all in one; when scanning some of the documents end up with ~1inch cut off even though they are standard letter size. Any suggestions?


Make sure you are placing the page in the scanner properly, most will indicate what corner/edge the scanner begins scanning from, you may also try checking the settings for the scanning software to make sure its set to letter, or try setting it to legal if its already set to letter.

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.

Scanning to a word doc so i can edit the doc


You need to buy or download OCR software to your computer. The scanner doesn't control that, the only way to get a word document from a scan is to "read" the document with OCR software.

After scanning will not bring up on ms office word


Most ikely your scanned document is a GIF, JPG, BMP or even PDF document and not a word document, as for scanning it into word requires special software (OCR software). Try this:
right click on your scanned document and select properties. It should tell you which file type it concerns, which is probably one the options i gave above. If it is an image. try opening the document with a picture viewingprogram such as paint, microsoft pictureviewer or any other picture viewing software. If it is adobe document, you should open it with adobe reader (free availav\ble on the web).

Scanning a word document Deskjet F4180


Scanning a document is the same as scanning a picture, it must be done from within the document app. In this case I'm assuming you are using Microsoft Word.

Scan a picture and insert it in a document@import url(/Office.css); To do this procedure, your device (a scanner or a digital camera) must be connected to your computer and be TWAIN-compatible. You should also make sure that you have installed the device software that supports TWAIN.
Some devices come with more than one software program. If you are not sure what software is TWAIN-compatible, check the device documentation or contact the manufacturer of the device.
  1. Set up the picture in the scanning device.

  2. On the Insert menu in Microsoft Word, point to Picture, and then click From Scanner or Camera.

  3. If you have more than one device connected to your computer, select the one you want to use under Device.

  4. Do one of the following: If you want to use a lower resolution or you intend for your document to be viewed on the screen, click Web Quality.
  5. If you want to use a higher resolution or you intend for your document to be printed, click Print Quality.

  6. Do one of the following: If you're using a scanner and you want to use predefined settings to scan your picture, click Insert.
    If you're using a scanner and you want to change image settings, or if you're using a camera, click Custom Insert. Then follow the instructions that come with the device you're using.
  7. When the image appears in the document, make any changes you want.

  8. You can use the tools on the Picture toolbar to make changes such as cropping the picture, and adjusting its brightness, contrast, and color.
Note The Insert button might be unavailable when using some scanners because the scanner software doesn't support an automatic scanning. Use the Custom Insert button instead.

Won't recognize legal size paper


I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.

I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:

*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.

It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.

**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)

I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.

Scanned documents are very light


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

What's the best program to use to scan old letters?


Do you have microsoft office.
if so, There's a little used program in the  directory on your start/programs/microsoft/microsoft office tools called Microsoft office document and microsoft office scanning.
Also, what software came with the printer/scanner. there's usualy a decent one bundled with them. if possible you may be able to scan to pdf. (pdf reader free from adobe)

---
Markbaker, as long as the scanner is installed correctly, then, again, in office or similar programs there should be an option to insert from scanner. click on that and it should bring up the scanner software to complete scan.

Scanning with Canon Pixma MP450


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.
