Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Slow scanning My MP600 takes forever to scan.  I get a 'processing calibration data'and 'do not open the document cover' message on my computer screen and eventually a small blue circle and 'Scanner is warming up' appears on the MP600 screen.  It's no exaggeration to say that this time I've been waiting over 20 minutes to scan one photo.  What am I doing wrong?

    I read some information on windows xp calibration issues.

    Do you have a switch on the scanner that switches from flatbed to film?

I had the same problem on a Mac after upgrading OSX (on 10.5.7 now).

Downloaded the newest scanner driver from Canon:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=2610&modelid=13800
and now it scans without delay!

I always scan using MP Navigator, not from the scanner itself: let's me edit the scans and save where I want as .jpg or .pdf.

I have a MP830 and when I try to scan in a doc. to my mac, it takes forever. I get this message "Processing calibration data from a scanner. Do not open the document cover."


The greater the detail setting the scanner is set to scan at, the greater will be the time taken to complete the scan process.

Lowering the detail settings may reduce the time taken to scan a document.
These settings may be found in the software that came with your printer.

Thanking you

How to scan pepers to my e mail id


I have a mp470. To scan I click start, programs, Canon2_bing.gif utilities, MP navigator, MP navigator extention and a screen opens where I can choose scan/import from the platen or memory card. Click on "photos/documents (platen)" and follow the on screen instructions. The path should be the same for your MP600. You can then save as a file and attach the file to your outgoing email. Good luck.

Takes 45 minutes for one scan!


Hello,

You must have been scanning using large DPI settings. Try to use 100 DPI for scanning. Also make sure that you have alot of free memory on your system. Hard drive space also affects the speed of the scanning. If you are using a parallel printer port for your scanning, this will contribute to the slowness of your scanning.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Can't calibrate the scan before scanning


I had the same problem when upgrading to mac os x. I was trying to scan directly from Photoshop but got the calibration message. I tried the two solutions given at the Canon website but they didn't work. I ended up downloading the Toolbox application to scan directly from there but the same message appeared. After installing the Toolbox application I unistalled the driver (11250) and reinstalled it. I opened Photoshop and tried scanning and the calibration window appeared only this time it didn't stop to give me the "Flim Adapter" warning. I must point that the scanner lid was open when this happend but I'm not sure that had anything to do with it.

So apparently it works if you have the Toolbox installed prior to installing the driver. The driver, Toolbox application and unistall driver can be found at Canon's website. Hope this helps.

Ciao!

CanoScan Scanner can not complete a scan


Double-check all connections and try another port if possible. There may also be damage to cables or pins. Do you have another cable to try? Do other devices work in the same port?
