Well from my past experiences with those scanners it is usually caused by the memory filling up from all the images your scanning. My first suggestion is to reboot your computer to clear out the memory. If the problem persist's then I would contact Canon you may have a problem with the unit inside your scanner that does the imaging.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES that I did attempt to help you with your problem. Thank you

Why do my slides only show as negatives


There may be a setting in the software to enable you to correct this - if not, then you'll have to deal with it in post-processing.

My scans look like a negative and not a photo


When you go to scan your slides, the software should have a setting for "slides", or "negatives". Make sure you select the correct one for what you've put in.

How to scan negatives?


You will need to check your Canon software that came with your Pixma MX310. I have a stand alone Canon Canoscan 8800F scanner that have the capability to scan 35mm film strip and 35mm mounted slide, the software included the feature for it.

Does the HP photosmart 2710 scan negative ansd 35mm slides?


This multi function printer/scanner cannot scan 35mm slides and negatives.
Some flat bed scanners with a lighr scource that shines through 35 mm slides and negatives can scan them.
You will be better off getting a dedicated 35 mm slide/negative scanner.
Check out this WEB site foe slide scanners.

you have chosen normal preview
1. change it to thumbnail preview
2. or click on "All" button in normal preview

Check what resolution you are scanning at. For a 35mm slide it should be at the highest setting since you are probably going to enlarge the image.

I am tring to scan my 35mm negatives


Select scan. When the window pops up look in the upper right hand corner of the window. You will see select source: drop down menu give you choices which includes negative film. Just select it. Then drop negatives into holder. Oh, make sure you remove the cover sheet that slides in and out of the cover.

Scanning 35mm slides and saving to computer


In order to scan 35mm slides to your computer, you need a scanner that has the capability of doing this. These scanners will either come with a 35mm adapter that will allow you to scan the slides, or there are scanners that will scan only 35mm slides. A good recommendation is either this or this.

Scans slides too dark.


maybe the slides are too dark, in other words, the pictures you took didn't have enough exposure therefore you it shows up dark.. You could always use photoshop or someother photo manipulation software to lighten the scan, same thing happens with my hp scanner with slide adapter, if it slides just show up dark, lightening it with software will help, unless it is unsaturated/shadows too dark, etc..

Hope this helps.

No option to scan Film Negatives


In order to see these options, you must have the Film Adapter Unit (FAU) attached to the scanner. The FAU is designed to scan in 35mm film, either positive or negative. The scanner has no options to scan in mounted 35mm slides.

Does the scanner work for scanning at all? If not, you may have a communication problem between the computer and the scanner, i.e., the computer doesn't know how the scanner is configured so it doesn't show the options. If it's a communication problem, check for any other USB devices that might interfere with communication. Especially, some printers seem to take over communications. Try disconnecting all other USB devices (except keyboard, mouse, etc.), reboot, and see if the situation corrects itself.
