Question about Canon MP970 Photo All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanned negatives are not sharp.

My scanned negatives all look out of focus. I followed directions for loading the negs but I feel I am doing something wrong. Thx!

    Having the same problem here, have tried new negs, old negs, slides, and even scanning with negatives inverted. Same problem each time. Took unit back to the shop and they gave me another one. Tried it again last night but no luck. I am getting more detail from the scan of a print than a scan from the original negative. This is no good at all. Have sent query to Canon Tech Support so hopefully get an answer soon, otherwise it's back to the shop for a full refund. No point spending that much money for a negative scanning function that doesn't work, I'll just buy a cheaper printer/scanner and get a dedicated 35mm film scanner.

One workaround is this: use the holder for the negatives as a guide but not as a holder as such.
To do this, place the film negative directly on the glass plate, then put the negative holder (completely assembled) on top of it; align the film and the holder so that the frames on the filmstrip line up with the marks on the holder correctly.
Now, close the lid and follow the normal procedure for scanning negatives. They're noticeably sharper this way, suggesting that the scanner's focus is set for items placed directly on the glass plate. I have no idea why focus isn't adjusted correctly for negatives, which site a millimetre or two above the glass.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
