Try to adjust the scanner resolution

Solution: Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution (Windows) - MP150 / MP170 / MP450 / MP500 / MP800 / MP950

Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be.
The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is.
The resolution can be changed before scanning. (Note)
If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled.
If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur.

To change standard scan settings using MP Navigator, click here
To change more advanced scan settings using the scanner driver, click here
Using MP Navigator
  1. Place the document face-down on the platen glass.

  2. Launch MP Navigator.
    1. On the Windows desktop, double-click the 'MP Navigator 2.0' icon.
    2. Alternatively, in the Windows taskbar, click 'Start', click '(All) Programs', 'Canon Utilities', 'MP Navigator 2.0' folder, then 'MP Navigator 2.0' icon.

  3. Click 'Scan Photo/Document'.

  6. If necessary, set other items as well.

I dont have the on screen manuals in order to use my Canon Mp210 scanner The printer and scanner are all in one. I put a photo or document in the scanner and turn it on, it seems to be on and ok, except I...


To get the manual go here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#BrochuresAndManuals .

Drivers and software for supported OS versions are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp210#DriversAndSoftware . If you want the scanner to work when you press the buttons on the unit, you will need the MP Navigator.

If you connected the USB cable and got a generic driver, uninstall that driver and then disconnect the USB cable before installing the software from the above site. This generic driver usually only runs the printer.

There is a monitor program that listens for button presses on the all-in-one. This must be running to scan from the unit. However, the software must be set up with destinations and default settings before the MP Navigator will work with those buttons. Thus you should first launch the software from the computer and learn the resolution and other details to set as your defaults. Place documents face down on the glass or face up in an Automatic Document Feeder.

If you have some versions of Windows, you can acquire scans if the basic Canon driver is installed without the full Canon software. For XP, Vista and Win7, Paint will work - File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista and Win7 both have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista includes Photo Gallery which also imports from the scanner. (For Win7 this is part of the Windows Live free download but isn't preinstalled.)

I hope this helps.

Scanning


As with most scanners, place the document in the scanner for scanning. Open the software that you wish to use. Select "File" from the menu and then "Import". Your scanner interface listing should appear. Click on the device to begin your import from your scanner. Your scanner should scan the document and it will appear in your application. Be advised, Scanners scan in a Graphic format. To edit in a wordprocessor you will need some kind of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Software to convert the graphics into a wordable form for editing.

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.

My Canon MP510 scanner won't scan - the printer works fine, but I can't get it to scan. It used to work just fine.


Try using your scanner from your computer, I'm using windows XP and when i go to My Computer and the printer is connected i see a section that says Scanner and Cameras, your printer should be there, click on it and follow the easy step to scan a document.

Slow scanning


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.

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.
