When I scan a letter and send it as a attachment to a e- mail the receiver cannot read it, the print is so small. I tried changing the resolution from 300 to 600 but that does not work. Apparently Im doing something wrong.This problem started about a week ago.

Scanning as a workable Word Document requires OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to be installed on the user's PC. OCR is sketchy at best and usually is unreadable.

Try just scanning at a lower resolution, like 150. 150 is fine for reading on a screen and even for printing, unless you need it to look exactly like the original (if fax quality is ok, you can go to 72).

When scanning, make sure to crop correctly, so you only get what you want. When it is displayed on the recipient's screen, it will be easier to read.

Hope this helps.

Scan it into a word document. Change the font size and resave it as a word doc. This can then be emailed without any issues.

I have used last 4 year canon 2900B printer. How to set 300 dpi printing resoluation


Canon PIXMA Manuals MG2900 series Resolution
Resolution The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm). The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail.

How to Set the Resolution You can set the resolution in Resolution on the (Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.
Item Type Use Color Mode Appropriate Resolution Color photo Copying
(Printing) Color 300 dpi Creating a postcard Color 300 dpi Saving to a computer Color 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Color 150 dpi Black and white photo Saving to a computer Grayscale 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Grayscale 150 dpi Text document (document or magazine) Copying Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 300 dpi Attaching to e-mail Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 150 dpi Scanning text using OCR Color or Grayscale 300 dpi Important
  • If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
Note
  • When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than the recommended one above.

How to send scanned documents abroad


Place your document in the scanner and choose a low resolution. Although scanners allow you to choose a high resolution, that feature is better suited for transferring photographs into your computer for editing. For documents, a resolution of 100 dpi (dots per inch) is a good choice.
Open your computer's Control Panel and select the "Scanners and Cameras" icon to open the scanner wizard. Follow the instructions to choose a location to save your scanned document. Create a new folder on your desktop, making it easy to locate the file later. Scan as many documents as needed to this folder.
Use your email account and create a new message, inserting your intended recipient's email address in the "Send to" field. You must type in the email address exactly.
Look at the top of your email window to find the "Insert" menu. When you click on it, a drop-down menu will appear, select the "Attach a File" option and choose the location of your document.
Highlight the desired document in the folder and double-click on it to attach it to your email message. Check to be sure the document attaches by looking for the file name in the "Attach" box above your text.
Repeat Steps 1 to 5 if you need to attach more documents. Send your email as usual.

Best of Luck!

I have a Canon MP240 and when I send things by scanning and then by email the things I send are too small for the people to read. How can I make it larger.


I find it easier to scan to file using the MP navigator software and then attach that file to an e-mail. You can change the scan resolution in the MP Navigator software.

My scansoft pdf software is not reducing to a small enough file to e-mail it is at the smallest resolution,


Apart from getting an emails account that allows bigger attachments there may be another way.... In the document ensure the smallest "Font" is used,any images are thumbnail versions and perhaps even try compressing it before you send with winRAR or the like

Dell 1815 dn all in one


When scanning a document it is common for the scanner to use a high resolution and color mode both of which increase the size of each scan. There is a limit on the size of an attachment which varies with your e-mail and or Internet provider. It is best to keep attachments as small as possible. You can change this in the settings menu going to black and white and setting the DPI (dots per inch) down from 300-600 to 150 or even 75 and the scan will be fine but a smaller file size. If you are sending color pictures you can make them smaller but the quality will suffer some and you will still need more then one e-mail but with adjustment of the settings you can reduce it to a minimum. I hope this is useful to you. Good Luck

I suspect you are choosing too small of a resolution in the scanning software. The specs from Canon say it will outout a maximum of 1200x2400 which should give you a much bigger image. Look through the manual again specifically looking for how to change the scan resolutions.

Try lowering your scan resolution settings. Magazine quality is 300dpi. If you don't want to lose too much quality, open the file is a image editor and crop only the area you wish to send.

Hi, Remote Fax Error being displayed


NOTE this option may vary to printer try USING OPTIONS TO SET CHANGES


To resolve the problem, try the steps below. After each step, try to send a fax again.

1. As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution:
* Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution.
2. Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document.
Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue.
3. Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX mode.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known.
4. Lower the fax transmission speed 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options untill u see until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
4. Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
5. Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press untill u see to get to ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press untill u see ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
